the only thing that positively works is liquid oxygen in hydrogen peroxide. diets will keep it at bay only temporarily, but if you want the problem destroyed oxygen is the only way to do it and I mean the only way period. I recommend a product based in aloe vera from phoenix nutritionals. google it to find it on the web. it works and is the only thing that will positively work. there are other products on the market as well and they will also work. oxygen is the key to destroying candida. get ready for some die-off reactions and you may not feel well for a few days as the dead fungus moves out of the body.
I am now still in early stages of using H2O2, so am avidly reading the entries for Candida.
For herpes, I was clued into l-lysine some years ago, and it is great. Foods high in L-lysine are listed on the internet, and also foods high in arginine, which is in chocolate, nuts, popcorn, brown rice and other foods. Arginine is used in labs to GROW the Herpes virus, so those chocolate and nut snacks can give you an attack! I have purchased l-lysine over the internet and also at some grocers and health food stores, and just keep it handy. Often when I want to eat some chocolate, I pop some l-lysine soon after and no problem. It is a harmless amino acid and resets the balance in your system.
Candex is very good for Candida but so expensive, I am happily taking the H2O2 and wanted to check increasing the dosage from 8 drops in an 8 oz glass of water 3X a day and here is all this information for me! My Mother and Grandmother died young of breast cancer and I began researching things that cure cancer as I realize the AMA is not chock full of 100% doctors, and found ESSIAC. The herbs can be purchased pre-measured from the Herb Products Company in Hollywood. I am 62, teach yoga and breathing techniques, doing them myself daily and am very healthy!
35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide--
I had crippling rheumatoid arthritis in 1985, where all the joints in my right arm were locked up and would not move. I was in constant, horrible pain and got no sleep for over 3 months. I began drinking extremely dilute amounts of the 35% HP DROPS in PURE WATER (NOT Tap Water!!)I also had candida albicans, and my cholesterol level was 465 as tested by my MD friend. Within 1 week the pain in my joints on my right arm was GONE and I was sleeping like a baby! Within one month I had free range of motion in all joints--from my fingers to my shoulder. My cholesterol was down to 289 and the candida symptoms were greatly reduced. By the end of the second month, my cholesterol was 155 (normal and safe) and all symptoms of candida albicans infestation were GONE. That was 28 YEARS ago, and I have had NO reoccurances of any of the above problems. I call that a "CURE!"
H2O2 amounts taken: Begin first day with ONE DROP H2O2 in 8 oz. PURE WATER. Second day: two drops H2O2. Third day: three drops H2O2...and so on until you reach 10 drops per day. Now, if the taste is too bad, split the HP drops into 5 in the morning, and 5 in the evening--near bed time. Work back taking 10 drops twice a day, THEN split it into THIRDS, AND begin taking 7 drops THREE times a day, or whatever you can handle. Slowly work back up to taking 10 drops THREE times a day. Don't go much higher than that, or you might want to stay at 7 drops, three times a day. Let your body determine your amount.
ALSO, do NOT drink any H2O2 water 45 minutes BEFORE OR AFTER EATING A MEAL OR TAKING SUPPLIMENTS! You may throw up (vomit.)
ALSO, take 500 mg. of Vitamin C once a day to neutralize any free radical formations that may have occured. The oxygen in the H2O2 attacks the iron in the blood and causes that reaction. The Vitamin C will clean it up, and Selenium may also be substituted for the Vitamin C.
MY SKIN CANCER (Melanoma) "erased" with topical application of 35% Food Grade HP: I had several dark mole-like formations on my forearms come up after being out in the Texas sun a lot. They itched, and my doctor friend said they were Melanomas and that I should see a professional about them. I knew what HP would do for them, so I took a nail file and GENTLY abraded the surface of these dark bumps, and then I applied straight 35% Food Grade HP to the spots with a Q-Tip (cotton swab on a stick) UNTIL THEY TURNED WHITE IN COLOR. I did this 3 times a day for a week. By the end of the week, they had turned to powder or dust, and were FLAT and GONE! There was no itching, NO pain, and they left a slightly lightened spot on my arm where they used to be. They never came back again, and that was over 20 YEARS ago!
ARTHRITIS IN MY KNEES: 17 years ago, I developed rhumatoid arthritis in both knees. I began the HP method by washing my knees with soap and water to remove any body oil, then MISTED them with a 3% solution of HP that was diluted down from 35% Food Grade HP (12:1) with PURE WATER. I wore shorts and then misted my knees, then waited until they were dry, then misted them again while I watched Television or did Computer work. I did this for at least 30 minutes at a time, and I did 4 HP misting sessions a day. My knees were back to NORMAL WITH NO PAIN in ONE WEEK!! I was so happy! I told my friends who had similar problems, and they said that they tried SOAKING their finger and elbow joints in 3% Food Grade HP by pouring the 3% HP solution into a shallow bowl and soaking them for 30 minutes 3-4 times a day. When finished, they would pour the 3% HP solution back into a one gallon plastic jug. The last soaking, they put it in the refrigerator for safe keeping overnight. The next day, they would remove the HP jug from the refrigerator and let it sit out until it had warmed to room temperature, then use in in the bowl to soak their joints until the evening. Worked great!! If you make up one gallon of 3% solution and keep it in the refrigerator, it should last at least one month before you need to make another gallon of it.
IN DALLAS, TEXAS, I found 35% Food Grade HP at "Roy's Natural Market" 6025 Royal Ln. Ste 130
Dallas, TX 75230-8857
Phone: (214) 987-0213. They have been selling HP for many years, and it is about $16.00 (US) for one quart, which will last a long time when you are spraying it.
Enjoy being pain-free!
re: chronic systemic candidiasis/numbness/agression/depression/acne/bedwetting. My whole family has been overrun by candida. Our ph has been off for years. As a result, many, many health problems. Found a website with info on 35% grade h202 and of course your site for the ACV and oil pulling.
Gradually building up from 1 drop in 6-8 oz of water 3x's daily of h202 until you reach 25 drops 3x's daily over a course of 2 weeks(for those who can stomache this, please note this is only for CHRONIC ailments and 35% FOOD GRADE h202 ONLY, purchased online or at health food stores). After 2 weeks, once you are up to the full doasge, continue for a week (may need to keep going for weeks, even up to 4 months, depending how bad your case is) and then slowly taper off, decreasing each dosage by 1-2 drops until you reach a maintaining level of 1-3 drops daily, or every other day, depending on what is best FOR YOU. Note: 35% food grade h202 needs to be handled with kid gloves. It is very strong and MUST NOT be abused or taken in large quantities. Death can occur if taken at full strength. Keep in refigerator and if contact with skin, rinse area immediately.
I think if I had to do it all over again, I would have gotten our ph levels balanced BEFORE starting course of h202 therapy, but as it was, I was already in the middle of it when I stumbled upon this site for using ACV in hopes of curing other ailments we all had. For the ACV therapy I used the standard 2 Tbl ACV (organic unpasteurized is best, NOT white vinegar!) mixed with 1/4 tsp baking soda.
Finding the right dosage for your younger children will have to use some smart thinking and regulating. Only you know your child best. Always start with smaller amounts when in doubt and gradually build up. My 16 year old could not stomache more than 20 drops of 35% h202 3x's a day. For my 11 year old I did a max of 14 drops 3x daily and my 6 year old, 8 drops 3xs daily. I have heard lecitin can be used to help lessen the nausea that is often associated with taking h202 orally, though I have not personally tried it.
As for the ACV, my teen was ok with the adult dosage and my younger two by cutting it in half.
Ted has stated on this site that h202 and ACV should not be mixed, so either do one or the other, however, I found for my husband as well as myself, alternating days has been working out so far. In other words, one day doing h202 and then the next day only using ACV.
Oil pulling has also proved beneficial for us, 1 Tbl EVOO (extra virg. olive oil) swishing and pulling through teeth until it turns white and liquid like. Twice weekly.
Ok, here is the list of ailments we had that have been greatly helped by, if not completely cured by doing the 35% food grade h202 drops, ACV/baking soda and the oil pulling:
-CHRONIC systemic candidiasis
-CHRONIC vaginal itching (would get pap smears and tested for yeast infections which would all come up negative, found out from another Dr that lab results for the testing of candida have a 55% inaccuracy)
-MRSA (kept re-occuring and Dr's could not find the reason for it, have spent weeks in the hospital for this)
-numbness in whole body (was running 20 miles a week, had to cut down to zero because of this, Dr prescribed anti anxiety medication for this and of course it didn't work)
-fungus (Dr's could not cure for years and years)
-allergies (we have taken EVERY known allergy med out there, none worked)
-bloody nose (2-3 x's a week)
-night time bed wetting (one son did not have a dry night since he was born and now is on his way to never having to wear "pull-ups" ever again--we got all types of conflicting medical advice from different Dr's over this one and not one of them worked to "cure" this)
-acne (Dr put him on 3 month course of tetrycycline to no avail)
-weight gain (we have all lost 3-4 inches around waist)
-chronic mucous in lungs (one son was diagnosed with asthma and put on meds, only to aggravate the stuation, my son was going nuts,to the point of a mental melt down; he would also wake up in the middle of the night gagging on this mucous-phlegm like substance, eventually leading to him throwing up...not fun)
-low energy (I would need 14 hours of sleep some days)
-aggression/irritability(my temper was so bad that my family was becoming scared of me!)
-stomache ailments (husbands stomache was terribly distended)
-sore joints/muscles (to the point where I needed my sons and husband to literally POUND on my back as hard as they could in order to alleviate the achiness)
-headaches (800 mg of ibuprofen was no longer working)
...basically being a part of the dead, rather than the living!
Thanks to all who have passed on info in order to improve the quality of life for others. You guys rock Earth Clinic, (and a shout out to Dr. David G. Williams for h202 therapy as well)!
I was ill for 2 years with severe candida throughout my entire body. Nothing worked to take away the pain from infected ovaries, kidneys, urinary tract, bowel etc...as I was given copious amounts of antibiotics to supposedly cure me - I just got sicker. Some elderly lady in a health food store told me to do a total elimination diet. I subsisted on short grain brown rice and steamed vegetables with distilled water for 2 months coupled with food grade hydrogen peroxide in specific amounts and intervals.
In the third month, I was finally pain-free the candida was completely gone! It was a miracle and 15 years later I'm as normal as can be and am able to eat and drink whatever I want. I still take the H202 and aloe vera juice or Cider Vinegar in the mornings and am very aware of what I eat and drink. Being sick teaches you a lot of lessons. It also told me about the power of prayer and positive thinking.
H202 therapy cured stiffness in the back and candida big time. I would wake up in the morning energyless until I did my regular kidney flush, now after the therapy, i woke up feeling good.
I went on H2O2 for twelve months. All candidias symptoms- fatigue, IBS, sore joints, fungal infections reduced then disappeared plus my weight went down by twenty kilos without any dietary changes. I have always eaten correctly but the weight just never came off.
Bill, my alternative doctor has given me liquid iodine forte. The bottle says 1 drop 0.05 ml iodine as potassium iodide 150 mcg. Is this as good as lugol's? Is it worth taking and how much to equal lugol's? He has me on two drops a day. Is that enough for the candida protocol? Thanks for your help

I would like to share this story with you!
I've researched about Candida for quite a while in order to help my mum that has been suffering from Candida for about 25 years and it got worse and worse. She had to brush her tongue and her teeth several times a day, she also had Candida on her nails. Her digestion was bad, her energy was low, she was a rather negative person. She really suffered. I also need to tell you that many people with Candida should first get rid of their Amalgam teeth fillings and then divert it correctly (you'll find information about that online easily)
Desperate enough, she was willing to try something new with me being her "supervisor".
We did the following:
10-days green juice fast, strict diet and colon cleanse once a week
after those 10 days fasting she had to follow a very strict diet: No sugar, no alcohol, no carbos, no nuts, no animal products (besides once a week a small piece of meet or fish), no nuts and seeds, no RAW food, no artifical food products (like the "E's"), if possible organic. So in short, she has been eating mainly steamed or stired veggies with a sauce (oil or coconut milk or soy cream with lots of amazing spicies and herbs), avocado purÃ©e with lemon, salt and pepper for breaky or Hummus.
After one month Candida was reduced for about 40 to 50%.
The second month she was allowed a little more but only because we had really good results. Once a week she was allowed to eat: meat, fish, a glass of good wine. Every day she chose different carbos and ate them in small quantities (only eat a specific sort once a week max): brown rice, spelt, rye, quinoa, millet, corn (no wheat if poss).
After the second month she was an almost different person - spreading so much love and light!
She will have to continue another 3 to 4 month I guess. And she felt very weak in the beginning for about one month. It is a lot. But it is so worthwhile if you get to the point where everybody could be: feeling light, authentic, loving towards yourself and others... And she has become so easy-going, so relaxed;)
In your book you advise against eating fruits, especially citrus fruits, because they contain "citric acid that uses up alkaline body bicarbonates during digestion".
However, the juice of lemon is used in alkalizing remedies that you recommend to alkalize the body.
Could you explain this contradiction?
Moreover, after drinking lemon juice, I get UTI and pain in my back, and I wonder whether is this some kind of die-off. I do not experience the same reaction after antifungals such as VCO.
I just want to encourage others to stay on a pretty strict low fat diet while killing candida and other beasties. I have had candida for many years and have tried the lowfat raw diet and am now taking MMS in addition to it. I am only up to seven drops but so fat so good, no side effects yet. I think I am feeling well because of staying lowfat this means only fruit and vegetables and rice cakes and sprouted grain breads, etc. Everyone who has researched candida treatment knows most people say stay away from sugar but I learned that the sugar can't feed the beasties on lowfat diet on the internet. I have had very good success with it but I still get symptomatic if I slip and eat to much fat, thus I am using MMS to help kill it off. I am convinced that these two together will make and are making a huge difference. While I don't eat all raw, the MMS and lowfat high raw diet are making a big difference. Also, it is important to normalize your ph and this diet with MMS will do that. I have read that the beasties cannot live in an alkaline environment.
I have used Lufenuron a couple times and it has cleared up my symptoms of systemic candida. I can even eat sugar with no adverse effect except that after a month or so the candida comes back.
So I recommend it with a candida diet so hopefully the candida will not overgrow again. It was a welcome break from the intestinal discomfort and brain fog. It is a drug and as such has some not good side effects but for me I saw none.
Fermented foods and NO sugar or white flour products. No high glycemic foods. One dose lasted me a good month.
Beware non food grade. Food grade lufenuron is worth the price.
Lufenuron has been demonstrated to help with fungal infections in other studies. Within a few days of taking it, body odor disappeared (a miracle in my mind). If I let 2-3 months lapse between doses, I can tell I've run out of lufenuron because I will notice deodorant doesn't work and I will crave sugar (some say this isn't related to candida, I disagree). I never crave sugar when I've recently had lufenuron. I think it also reduces or all but eliminates acne, although that effect could be because I'm not eating as much sugar. Been using lufenuron for at least 4 years, often forgetting I have it and not taking it monthly, but always recognizing the benefits within a few days of taking it. When the yeast come back, I will begin to think I need to throw my shoes out. Luckily I found a way to spare my shoes and simultaneously instantaneously erradicate the yeast and bacteria in the skin on the bottom of my feet. My trick will hopefully help others. It's easiest with sandals but can work with closed shoes if one proceeds with sensibility. The trick is to mix baking soda about 1:5 with hydrogen peroxide 3% (drug store quality) and squirt (if an absorbent insole, spray) onto the insoles. Insert feet and squish it around then walk around for a few minutes. It makes my feet so fresh and the shoes smell better than new. This should be used carefully because some could have sensitivities to either product. If one determines from a test patch that their skin is sensitive to this, try diluting the solution with water.
BTW, as many have noticed there seems to be a link between candida and autoimmunity (including allergies). Taking MSM in large doses (1-3 tbsp/day) completely cleared sinuses and other allergy symptoms. Some say MSM is effective against Candida so this might be one remedy to research if one wants to stay natural and avoid lufenuron. I have a "whatever works" philosophy and keep trying new things until one works well and is affordable and without ill effects. The MSM in such high doses caused me headaches so I had to stop it. Today I started molybdenum. Apparently a high sulfur intake resulting in headaches can indicate a molybdenum "deficiency".
As an adult woman I've had a few yeast infections but last year I was given some really strong antibiotics and after that I had what was a permanent yeast infection for a year. I also have a skin condition called psoriasis. I came across the possibility of a severe candida infection and began researching. I finally came across this website about Lufenuron, which is actually a veterinary drug. I ordered it online, it arrived from the Czech Republic, I was a bit concerned - but I went for it. It worked.
None of my natural remedies worked, and though I'm all for natural I cannot tell you the relief I have now. It was well worth the die-off (yeah, I woke up in the middle of the night with a raging migraine and puked my guts out) and feeling very ill for a few days. But it's been 3 weeks now and no sign of the yeast infection. I am not at all associated with this company or anything like that - but I am dedicated to sharing this info with as many people as possible so I?m trying to retrace my digital steps and visit all the forums I looked at while I was trying to find help so I could help you all.
Lufenuron: wondering if anyone has used this as a candida cleanse. Specifically there is a Candida product which I believe has lufenuron as it's main ingredient.
