Candida is a single-celled organism–is a type of common mold; They leave white flacky macules or papules on dead, damp and decaying surfaces or skin. Hence the name, “candida albicans.” yeast is the rounded form that is used industrially to produce beer and wine through the process of fermentation (fermentation is the enzymatic process of turning sugars into sugar alcohol or alcohol. The baking industry also use yeast to make the dough (processed wheat flour) to rise in the process of making bread, bagels, and dough nuts. Based on these uses, we hear the terms: “brewers yeast” and bakers yeast.” More commonly we see forms of candida in stale food, spoit drinks or tap water. Even mushroom that springs up overnight is a giant form of muli-cellular fungi. This is the reason why you must avoid all these aforementioned products that are vehicles for yeast infection and systemic candidiasis (when candida overwhems the body organs and systems and produce diffuse symptoms that does not fit into any classical diagnosis or pattern.
It is interesting to hear the everybody has candida in their body to some degree that they co-exist with the rest of the body without producing symptoms. However, when the immune system is down either because of intercurrent infection, antibiotic abuse killing both good and bad bacteria; or even hormone replacement therapy or the taking of steriods, candida can then over grow and overwhelm the body. When candida does this, it is called systemic candidiais or simply candidiasis.Candida enters the body through food like bread, drink like beer, wine, cheese, commercial and sugar laden fruit juices, pea nuts, sodas, left overs, stale food (including food that has been in the refrigerator for a long time.Inside the body the yeast (the rounded form) tranforms to the tree-like form called the mycelia and produce roots called rhizoids to anchor itself to the intestinal wall to relaease more yeast and mycotoxins, alcohols, formaldehyde and methane and hydrogen sulphide which are released as gases with the smell of rotten egg.Note that while in the body, the candida overcrowds and displaces the good bacteria as they setup house-keeping in the intestines and colon. The colon is a more conducive atmospher for candida because they like damp, dark, dead and decaying (putrid) matter. Candida loves acidic anerobic environment generated by bad bacteria that worsens the complications as they produce their own toxins along with intestinal parasites. These diabolic trinity of candida overgrowth, bad bacteria and parasites create further sickness and disgusting symptoms or symptom complex that confuse most doctors.Candida symptoms include: bloating, gas (flatulence), indigestion, headaches, jock itch or athlete’s foot, skin infections, alopecia areata, chronic fatique syndrome, fibromyalgia, sinusitis, brain fog or forgetfulness, systemic weight gain, oral thrush, vaginal itching and discharge, PMS, irritable bowel syndrome, diaper rash in children and witch brew of other symptoms. In fact, candida is causative or contributory factor in many auto-immune, inflammatory and degenerative diseases including lupus, cancer and vitiligo. Candida cause disease in a vicious fashion through many pathological mechanisms. They deplete vital nutrients creating dietry deficiency including depletion of B-complex vitamins, cause leaky gut syndrome, encourage the spread of bad bacteria, deplete good bacteria, create many toxins, tax the body’s enzymes and pollute the immune system.To eliminate candida, you must take a mulit-pronged approach by considering several factors. First you must eliminate the offending candida laden food and drink from your diet. That means giving up bread and yeast-loaded products like bagels and dough nuts, nuts, wine, beer, sodas, fruit juices, sugars of all kinds, You must stop drinking tap water and throw away any food that is stale or suspicious including expired food. Junk food, fried foods, packaged food and stored grains are full of mold. Don’t keep fruit and vegetables (perishables) beyond one week or less. Stop all sugary fruits like grapes, watermelon, honeydew melon, over-riped bananas, pineapples, as well as roasted or stored nuts. Stop chemicals including all prescription drugs like steroids or antibiotics. Cut out all forms of sugars including ice cream and dairy products that attract candida like crazy.Candida hates bitter herbs like gentian, Swedish bitters, lemons, and bitter melon. Eat raw salads like watercress, spinarch and turnip greens. Eat raw super foods like tomatoes, avocados, kiwi fruits, celery, onions, garlic, squash, and cucumbers. Steamed broccoli and asparagus are excellent. Fungi hate raw leaving and green super foods like barley grass, wheat grass or alfafa.You can do candida detox with Epsom salt, olive oil and oregano oil. pau d’arco, black walnut (can also kill parasites) and caprylic acid from extra virgin coconut oil can kill candida or retard the growth. These natural remedies must be taken in synergistic combination because re-infection and cross infection which is common with candidiasis. Your must also do colon cleanse and liver cleanse to dislodge candida house-keeping and anchor sites. To avoid re-infection.
