How to Cure Candida

Ted's Remedies
Posted by kk (Canada) on 02/08/2021

Hello, I am struggling with the Candida diet. When I try to find it on here I am unable to so I am going to make a post.

I started Ted's alkalizing protocols about a week or so ago. I have begun to eat less meat so I can alkalize.

I have been taking 1/2 tsp of baking soda and lemon 2x per day. And 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp sodium carbonate, and 1/4 tsp potassium carbonate. 30 min after meals.

The issue is that I have a rapid metabolism and poor digestion. I am usually around 150 lbs but I am just at 150 already. I know ill continue to lose weight if I don't get calories. This causes me anxiety. According to Ted, you are to limit fats on a Candida diet. I eat coconut oil. I don't consume any vegetable oils or processed foods. Been avoiding those for years. I have limited my organic butter. Cut out all gluten and dairy. I haven't been eating grains.

I would like to eat grains. I have some brown rice, amaranth, and quinoa here but I don't really know how to cook it. Soaking is required?

I know about nuts and seeds but I seem to have a hard time ingesting them. I am taking lecithin for liver congestion. Also dealing with heavy metals.

I have a complex web of issues and I really need to know how to eat Alkaline and eat for candida as well. Are sweet potatoes bad?

I am just wondering what I can and can not eat. What I can and can not eat in moderation...

Pretty confused here..

Can someone answer me, how do you take hydrogen peroxide already diluted to 3%.?In Italy you cannot buy the 35% solution!What would be the protocol for candida using 3% hydrogen peroxide .. How much distilled water should be diluted?I did the borax protocol for a month, and it really helped, but now I see, a little perianal egzema is back. Certainly not with the same strength!I think, hydrogen peroxide could make a difference!Thanks in advance! This site is saving me!!!

I'm really concerned about this business of drinking water with my meals. I have not done that for some years now because I had heard it got in the way of digesting food properly. Now I ran across Bill's post and want to get all the input I can.

Hoping to hear from anyone who drinks liquids/water with their meals, Denise

It is already well described in the literature that colloidal silver nanoparticles are a broad spectrum antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal and to a lesser extent antiparasitic.

The following studies suggest that it is also effective at fighting Candida Albicans and breaking down related biofilms. This can be useful information for people who are plagued by this fungal overgrowth along with other pathogen issues related to candida. Although colloidal silver nanoparticles (AGNP's) are potent in terms of their antipathogenic effects, candida is a tough pathogen to fight and will likely take an extended period of time to fight. Something interesting about AGNP's is that they have shown the ability to overcome bacteria that has become resistant to antibiotics and AGNP's have even shown synergy with some antibiotics. This is something you should discuss with your doctor to see if it is something you can try if you have been diagnosed with candida albicans.

Here are the links to those studies:

Hi Becky...If you have a fungal infection in the ear then this could just be an external symptom of systemic candida(infecting your blood). So you should continue with the anti-candida protocol.

You could also perhaps try using 1% solution of hydrogen peroxide. Fill a dropper with 1% HP and squirt it carefully and slowly into the infected ear. Tip your head and massage around the ear lightly and allow the HP to go deep into your ear passages. And yes, it will tickle and fizz which is proof enough that HP is killing the pathogens in your ear. If you can, keep the HP in your ear until the fizzing greatly reduces or stops. When you're finished just tip the HP out of your ear into the sink. You should use this protocol for both ears -- at least once a day until the infection disappears.

You should not really eat sweet fruit or honey of you have candida. Most sweet fruits contain fructose which is a favourite food for candida and other pathogens. So you should really try to avoid avoid sugar, carbohydrates and fruits as best you can if you have systemic candida issues.

You are also right -- I did eat fruit in the beginning when I took my protocol but eventually gave it up to good effect. Don't forget that was over 11 years ago -- I know a heck of alot more about candida now than I did all those years ago.

I must also admit that I do eat fruit now for breakfast depending on seasonal availability -- sometimes yellow mango or carabao mango, native pineapple (not Del Monte), pomelo (grandfather of the grapefruit), dalandan (small, sour native orange), rambutan (a bit like lychees), apple, lanzones, soursop (like graviola), grapes, calamansi (like small lime -- used in hot or cold sour drinks and dips), mangosteen, tamarind fruit(unprocessed), coconut water. Always fresh and never in excess.

To Bill ( Philippines) In the post above you state that you had changed your diet becoming more rice and fruit based. Did you eat fruit while ridding your body of Candida? I have a serious systemic infection with the worst in my ear from a long standing ear fungal infection. When I try fruit I feel like this ear area is pushing into my brain. MANY say we need fruit to clean out our body of acidosis. I am trying to get there but this situation is touchy and go. Diet extremely limited so it hard not to eat meat. Anyway am curious if you ate fruit while detoxing Candida? Thanks!

Hi Sidney, I was diagnosed with candida overgrowth 3 years ago, mainly the result of taking inhaled corticosteroids for many years for asthma (which I no longer have BTW). Anyway, one of the best things that helped me get a handle on starving and killing it off was hydrogen peroxide therapy, using 35% food-grade hydrogen peroxide diluted to a 1 to 11 ratio in distilled water. This therapy really helped clear out the pockets of fungus that kept showing themselves and really helped my body flush out the toxins. The full therapy takes a while to complete, but is very effective. Also I did not have any negative side effects at all.

What I did was put the drops of diluted H2O2 in 8 oz. of juice or tea and drank that every morning and afternoon on an empty stomach. I started with 3 drops and increased it by 1 drop every day until I reached 25 drops. I stayed at that level for 31 days before I started decreasing it by 1 or 2 drops until I reached a level of 15 drops. I stayed at that level for a couple of weeks before I decreased the dose again until I reached 10 drops, stayed at that again for a couple of weeks, and then decreased to 5 drops, and finally back to 3 drops, which I still maintain. To make the diluted solution, put 1 oz. of full strength 35% food-grade hydrogen peroxide into a glass container and add 11 oz. of distilled water. This should be stored in the refrigerator. Using an eye-dropper, add the drops to the juice and drink it all at once. Candida is a very persistent and strong parasitic organism and will be fighting for its life once you begin the therapy. If at anytime you experience extreme detoxing symptoms, do not increase the drops until your body stabilizes. If necessary, drop back to the dose you were able to take and stay at that level until you feel able to resume increasing drops.

I hope this is helpful and I wish you all the best in your journey to good health! Flower's Mom

Hi Luda...Thanks for your comments. Regarding my own Candida problem, I managed to get rid of it completely about 11 years ago and it has never returned. Many people have the same problems as you -- they just cannot get rid of their candida. Or if they do, like you, it always suddenly comes back. This is really why it's so difficult to get rid of Candida because, for many people, it just keeps coming back and they can't understand it -- in other words, you never really got rid of all your candida in the first place because it was just hiding somewhere in your body waiting to reinfect you.

The anti-candida protocol that I advise people to take now is shown here.

The reason that people with candida problems seem to fail so often is perhaps because either they don't take the protocol properly or they cheat and eat sugar and carbohydrates when they shouldn't or they come off the protocol too soon because they think they are cured when candida is a still hiding safely somewhere in their body just waiting to pounce. They might also suddenly agree to be put on anti-biotics for other issues for a while by their doctor -- doing this is one of the major causes of serious candida issues. Taking anti-biotics is probably the worst thing you can do because it basically destroys all the good protective bacteria in your gut which now has no local immune defence, so the candida has free reign to suddenly rise up and dominate and will spread throughout your body very rapidly.

Lastly I would be the first to admit that it's very difficult for people to cure themselves with any anti-candida protocol because they really must take their protocol properly -- as stated -- or it won't work that well. This means that if you want to rid yourself of systemic candida issues then you really must be highly focused and have the willpower to do it.

Your dizziness and fogginess could be due to candida poisons or it could be due to an existing hypothyroid condition or it could be both. Best to get your thyroid checked and, when you do, you should insist that your doctor also check the levels of your Free T3 (triiodothyronine) levels which gives the most accurate result for the thyroid. If you just check Free T4(thyroxine), as doctors normally do, you stand a good chance of getting an inaccurate thyroid assessment. See this link for more information on the thyroid.

Lastly, it took me a whole year to cure my own systemic candida issues all those years ago. I actually thought I was cured after six months but I still stayed on the protocol for an extra six months to make absolutely sure because I knew that candida could hide. And when I say that I'm cured I mean that my systemic candida is gone. I can eat whatever I like -- including wheat, oats and milk as well as fruit and sugary foods now and then, without any issues. I also have no asthma or digestive problems or allergies(which can all be strong indicators for existing or latent candida issues).

Hi Bill, I'm interested in reading your story. I'm trying to be as strong as you but I'm having difficulty as I had candida a long time ago and got rid of it. But now its come back and I've had it for 2 years. I just can't seem to get rid of it. Just running in a circle of feeling better and again my acid goes up and candida comes back to attack me. I'm taking lots of natural medicine but still lots of dizziness and fogginess. I feel especially bad in the afternoons. I really don't know what to do. I don't eat bread or sugar. Any suggestions on how to get rid of it again?

Hi, I'm Don and this is my story about candida. I'm 58 and I think I've suffered from systemic candida, most of my adult life, though I never heard a doctor say candida once. I found out about it on my own, the hard way. I had athletes foot from borrowing shoes when I was 20. That brought on nail fungus and I suffered that through my 20s. I was put on some sort of meds that I had to take for 6 months or so.

This started a chain reaction that I have dealt with, on and off for almost 40 years. In my 30s I had two operations in the groin for abscess. After three years and no healing in site, a lady in a health food store told me about a doctor in Toronto. I went to see Dr. Ravi Devgan 25 years ago. After telling him my story, he said "you've suffered enough lets just get you healed". he gave me a shot of vit c and b12 then he put a giant magnet on my butt. ( I know that's what I said lol) then he took out a needle, and it was a giant needle He told me it was ozone. This needle was at least and inch thick and 6 inches long and there was no liquid in it. It was a gas. Now keep in mind that I have had this wound on my vein that would not heal. Puss would keep weeping out of it. and it was painful And the doctor wanted to do another operation. So I let him put this ozone in my vein. I paid the man I think 300 dollars, and I left there thinking what in gods name have I done. But on the way home I reluctantly admitted, I was in less pain. When I got home I used my trusty mirror that I'd used for three years, to look at this little pain in the ass, and it looked a healthy pink colour.

I was healed in two weeks, it was amazing, ozone can cure so many things.

In my mid 40s, I went to the dentist for a cleaning, and they found tongue cancer. I had two operations on that. Before the first I went to see Ravi, and he told me he could fix this. I told him my family would kill me if I didn't follow the doctors. He convinced me that I should get a shot of ozone that it would at least help with the healing process. So not being afraid of ozone, I agreed.

I woke up after the first operation, in very little pain. And it healed really fast. So I went to the 30 day checkup and was told that the clearances were not met. and they had to cut more out. I went for the second operation. Boy do I regret that, without a shot of ozone, I woke up with my tongue hanging out of my mouth with lots of pain. Pain that lasted for years.

I also had stomach problems and sinus issues my whole adult life, all treated with countless rounds of anti-bionics. All this modern medicine is what has caused my Candida, which went away like a boomerang always coming back.

So this year I started taking dirt (diatomaceous earth), and what a ride this has been. After three weeks I started passing what looked like thin rice maybe pin worms. For weeks. I kept seeing different substances, in my stool. I got sick as well with mucus coming out my mouth, hard flemmy things coming out my lungs, and the rest coming out my butt.

I was in a real fight here, I had no idea how sick I was. So I started to take the borax protocol as well. Then more pin worms started, my god when will it end lol. After a week or two with both the DE and the borax I passed what looked like a small white oyster type of thing with what looked like white whisks coming off it. And then that was it, I went off the DE and the borax for a month or so but now I've decided to go back on the DE for perhaps a year or so. Sadly Ravi died about ten years or so ago, I would love have another shot of ozone. I've never written this all down before, so it was a little long winded.

In ending I would say run from allopathic doctors, from what I've suffered most was caused by them, and remember all cancer patients have one thing in common "Candida"........Don

NICINAMIDE HELPS ELIMINATES CANDIDA

Some doctors in Montreal found Niacinamide to be a potent fungal and aspergilla's killer. It basically kills Candida infections/pathogenic fungi. This of course is something genuis Ted already knew. Niacinamide is especially effective against candida. The human equivalent dose was 35 mg and it was only administered only once. A second dose of Niacinamide was given 8 hour later. However, even a single dose was effective. While this dose is on the high end for niacinamide, for most people it would still fall under 3g, which is what mainstream medicine officially considers the upper safety limit for niacinamide. Niacinamide can cure Candida infection with a single dose. I think taking caprylic acid a before to first dissolve biofilm and then take Niacinamide and I also took two a dissolved aspirin in a glass of water and took it with the niacinamide this was a strongly effective way to go after it. Of course the obvious stuff which is be on the anti-fungal diet, helps and expect a die off so do gentle detoxification to assist the body in the process of clearing and healing.

I think I have a severe Candida problem. I have a body wide, itchy rash, I get raised, oozy bumps on arms, back of neck, chest, upper back and face that cause burning and intense itch. The only relief I found for this was an otc antifungal cream. Eyes are also full of goop that strings out when I clean my eyes.

Bowels sometimes work OK, sometimes not. Sinuses are usaully clogged or I have a thin watery drip, hearing is diminished. Palms of hands have clusters of red spots below surface of skin that occasionally erupt. Almost always have brain fog and low to no energy. I feel like I've been beaten, I hurt all over. Sleep is erratic, sometimes 7 hrs, sometimes only 5 hrs, often waking in middle of the night. I never feel rested. Mood is subject to mild swings.

Problems started about 8 yrs ago after being hospitalized for a week and pumped full of steriods and antibiotics due to acute food poisoning and intestinal infection and have now reached a peak.

Two days ago I started drinking ACV (with mother)/water 3X a day and doing oil pulling with coconut oil. I also started swallowing one tablespoon of it daily (will increase this amount over the next 2 weeks) and using it in all cooking. Last night I noticed my tongue was entirely coated with thick white slime that was difficult to brush off. I have a tingling sensation all over my entire body and a constant mild headache. Sinus is now draining quite a bit of clear mucus. I noticed this morn that I now have slight lung congestion resulting in a light cough that produces a small amout of clear phelm. Stomach is bloated with lots of foul gas and I'm having soft BMs 2-3X a day. My urine is darker and has a strong bitter smell. Brain fog is much worse today. Diet is unchanged except for the addition of ACV and coconut oil and eating more raw onion and garlic. Plus I've doubled my water intake.

All I have available for use is pure coconut oil and ACV that someone brings to me.

Please, can anyone tell me if I have a severe Candida problem and if I'm doing the right thing with ACV and coconut oil?

I'm male, mid 60s, high blood pressure, PTSD.

Brewer's Yeast

Hi Julie

If you notice on this site with pretty much any issue or condition...there are multiple remedies mentioned because everyone is different. What works for one person may not work for someone else.

This site is all about answers! :) As far as the brewers yeast, simply do not consider it as an option for you presently..as your mind set can affect any results you are wanting for yourself. And perhaps lay off the hydrogen peroxide for a while, and can always restart it again at a later date if so inclined.

That being said. There are loads of ways to manage or get rid of candida...as frankly we all have some issue with balance of bacteria being 'off' at some point in our lives. Knowing how NOT to feed it, while also knowing what will help eliminate it, is what keeps it in check.

Good you are eating healthier as that is half of the issue. Stress however is another BIG contributor to Candida as it raises cortisol levels which then can increase blood sugar and well, we all know that yeast loves sugar. So how are you managing your stress on a DAILY basis?

Pau d' arco, garlic, olive leaf, organic unrefined coconut oil, infused oregano oil, food grade diatomaceous earth, all help kill the yeast/candida..I usually suggest 2 of these..start out with low doses so as not to overdo it initially.

As I'm big in mindset affecting health and our expectations...maybe try to soften your outlook from a 'nightmare' to an annoying situation you are simply in the process of fixing. ;)

Healthfully yours,

Katy


Brewer's Yeast
Posted by Julie (Pierre, Sd) on 11/06/2016

I am having a real hard time believing brewers yeast could be an answer to the horrible systemic Candida that I have been fighting against for years, I say this because every time I eat even a little bread Candida rears its ugly head and all my symptoms are back. I have been for most part, eating the healthiest foods, and no beverages but water. Food grade hydrogen peroxide I thought was the answer to my problems, it makes me feel symptom free, but I have to stay on a long term high dose to maintain and people are putting fear in me by saying long term use is highly dangerous. I am beside my self and think this nightmare will never go away, as you can tell it has me down today. I don't think there is any real cure, just ways to knock it back, and I have so many of them and spent a lot of money, has any of you ever heard or talked to anyone who has truly beat Candida?

Regarding turmeric and body odor when taking it:

I rescued an Akita, very ill and stressed. I added turmeric powder to his sardines and rice daily. He started to smell like cat pee. Didn't put it together until I read on an animal natural health blog that that odor is from ingesting turmeric, and the solution is to add cinnamon. It worked for Rocky. He is so healthy now and smells great. Vet is amazed at the transformation.


Turmeric
Posted by Carool (Mo) on 10/13/2016

Hello, I have been on a candida diet for the past 5 weeks and I am taking turmeric. Any way I was taking a tablespoon of turmeric for maybe two to three weeks 3 times a day and my husband said I started smelling not good. I looked at the recipe and saw you only take a teaspoon so that's what I'm doing now. It also said take almond oil. I can't find almond oil, is coconut oil OK.? Well since I was taking so much I am having trouble having a bowl movement since I stopped taking so much the last two days I've had a bowl movement. But they say you have to have 3 bowel movements to get well. Is that so? They say you can take turpentine to get rid of candida but you have to have 3 bowel movements before you use it, but you didn't use it and got better, is that right? What to I have to take to have more bowel movements. Carol


Dietary Changes

About 15 months ago, I had my first breakout with eczema. It was pretty bad, on my hands and face, and of course very uncomfortable. Over the next few months, I went the usual rounds with dermatologists, allergists, and even an acupuncturist. Some days were worse than others, but as eczema sufferers know, some days can be really uncomfortable and embarrassing. At times my hands looked like raw meat. I was determined to figure out the cause and a resolution. After lotions etc did not work, I starting figuring out that it might be diet related. I did a full cleanse for about a month- that is, none of the usual suspects (dairy, gluten, soy, nuts, nightshades, shellfish) and saw a big improvement. But as I started re-introducing foods, the eczema would flare up again. I was really having a hard time figuring out what the triggers were. And then, I stumbled on an article about the relationship between a candida overgrowth and eczema. This time for an elimination diet, I eliminated candida-feeding foods- fruit, sugar, yeast. AND...the result was an almost 100% clear up of my eczema!

What I have learned is that it is not the FOOD that you are eating per se, but how that food contributes to candida overgrowth. So you might be able to have a slice of bread one day and be ok, but at another time it will cause a flare. I am still in the figuring-it-all-out place, but I think that if I limit those foods (not necessarily eliminate all), my eczema seems to stay in check. I must say that I also take 2 tbl. of Apple Cider Vinegar each day as well. I am still a newbie to the candida overgrowth conversation, but if anyone out there is at their wit's end with this problem, it might be worth a shot to read up on it. An added bonus...I have read about the relationship between eczema and hay fever, which I have suffered from my whole life. This year, with being on the candida diet, my allergy symptoms have been almost non-existent! I few sniffles and sneezes, but surely not the eye-closing, I-can't-breathe reactions that have been a part of my life every fall.

Good luck to those who feel this might be an answer for them!

B: I would drop the H2O2 treatment for now and try other natural remedies like Coconut Oil, Oregano. There are many types infection in the gut so don't assume for sure it's candida only.

Hi, I started h2o2 therapy at 3 drops 3x a day in 8oz water, increasing by drop a day. Now I am at 15 drops dose, but in last few days I experienced gas and indigestion like never before. My shoulder/neck/head hurts after meal until I sip ginger juice to help digestion.

Most of the times I used distilled water, expect few times at work using filtered from watercooler, before figured to bring bottle from home with me. I have a concern if I continue, it may end up doing more harm than help. Is there anything related to h2o2 you would know to be the reason for these side effects?

Anything to help me continue? EC nation advice highly appreciated.

Dietary Changes, Antifungal Supplements

I have systemic candida which I have been treating by eliminating sugar though I had continued to eat grains and beans. I have recently stopped the grains and beans and started taking anti fungals: oil of oregano, olive leaf oil and Undecylenic Acid. I am continuing with the no grain no sugar diet but stopped all anti fungals temporarily due to feeling severe die off symptoms. Now I am just experiencing extreme fatigue though depression feelings have subsided. I am wondering if I can start the anti fungals again or one at a time or should I wait until I am no longer so fatigued?

Thank you for your input,

Berta


Undecylenic Acid

I read all these articles which assert the causes for candida, among them being poor diet diet high in processed foots and sugars, antibiotic use, 'acidic' pH and ''leaky gut.'' I don't agree. Being a puritan, these causes have never applied to me, yet I had recurrent thrush. I believe it to be stress related, for me. Whatever the reason, the remedy is more important than energy wasting digging for causes. Its an endless game. I'm shocked by some of the severe protocols suggested by some which I liken to applying agent orange to an environment, and these extreme protocols threaten to completely obliterate everything in the bodies ecosystem.

I've found Undecylenic acid. (10-undecenoic acid) is an eleven-carbon, mono-unsaturated fatty acid occurring naturally in the body's perspiration. While several fatty acids have beneficial effects on the flora that naturally inhabit the gastrointestinal tract, undecylenic acid is the most potent. It aids in the establishment of healthy gut and vaginal flora and is x6 beneficial than caprylic acid. It is a naturally occurring constituent of castor oil, which is isolated.

Along with the candida diet you need to start on a low dose and work your way up, because even for me the detox symptoms were pretty intense, although I didn't get the common ones. Mine were more ''emotional'' symptoms such as severe anxiety, ''flushes'', feeling ''spaced out'', fatigue, foggy etc. I really recommend everyone give it a go! I believe it is the most powerful antifungal out there. Still in the process but feel I'm on the way to restoring the imbalance. After all, candida was with us when we were born and will be when we die. Do you know that after the body dies, candida actually continues to live and ''eat'' the body? Its true. You cant eradicate it completely, but you can restore balance. All the best!


Apple Cider Vinegar

Maybe I wasn't clear. I wasn't saying boric acid is Borax; I was telling them to use Borax and not to use boric acid.

I noticed there is no indication of needing to avoid eating 3 hours before or 1 hour after with this H2O2 candida protocol.

Is that right?

Can you take this version of the H2O2 protocol before/after/with meals?

If it is an exception to the "not near meals" rule, how do you know it is?

(My other health issues require really frequent meals and snacks so if it is an exception that would be wonderful.)

Thanks!

Brian
