I had four years of constant vaginal infections. I was then put on repeat presciption of diflucan and constant pessaries. Allergy testing for food indicated things like yeast and tomatoe but giving these up made no difference.I gave up the pill at the suggestion of a herbalist and the infections stopped. However, five years later i got a prolapse and I think this was caused by all the infections plus drug filled pessaries I was constantly using that then caused tissue weakness.

I've had thrush candida now twice since (in about a decade) and it's very easy to get rid of with a few drops of Red turkey st john's worth applied internally (i.e topically internally). A canadian herbalist told me about this rememdy and it's an unusual one. She just had nothing else in the house and it made logical sense to her 'cos of it's constituents. it worked for her and it worked for me.

good luck.

can anyone tell me what 'red turkey' st. john's wort is? is this a tincture? thanks

EC: A little sleuthing on the internet and we think we've figured it out...

Red Turkey looks like it is actually called Turkey Red Oil, or Sulphonated Castor Oil. So it looks like St. John's Wort may be mixed with the castor oil and then applied inside the vagina.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castor_oil

"Sulfonated castor oil, also called sulfated castor oil, or Turkey Red Oil, is the only oil that completely disperses in water. It is made by adding sulfuric acid to pure castor oil.[5] This allows easy use for making bath oil products. It was the first synthetic detergent after ordinary soap. It is used in formulating lubricants, softeners, and dyeing assistants.[6]"

Hi, I'm a 54 years old male whom was diagnosed with candida over growth, I was given some drops to help with stabilising the over growth it work for a mouth or so now its back. Symptom Heart palpitation, gas, belching, passing gas but have good bowel movements as in no diarrhoea. The solution I was given has no name but I was given it at a Holistic Health Expo when I was diagnosed. At the moment I'm using ACV 1 tablespoon in a cup of water 3x a day stop sugar, white bread, still taking milk, natural yogurt, brown bread sometimes, eggs, olive oil, to cook with.

Can you please help ...

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

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!!!

Thanks for existing!!

This is amazing. Thank you. I believe this has controlled my life for so many years. I do not do sugar, except on occasions. Its a very bad thing for me. I know when I get sick and do miso with brown rice and veggies I feel better, but it doesn't stay. My gut balance has been out of whack for soooo many years. I am just finding out about food grade HP therapy. I read someone's post that said she uses HP in her ears for postnasal drip (3 drops each ear) and it has helped with a multitude of ailments. I tried that yesterday and it did help tremendously. The body is a miracle and if I can get back to a healthy balance I will be so grateful. Thanks.

I had a case of full blown systemic candida albicans, as I found out through confirming my symptoms with those posted on the Internet. The doctor wanted to hospitalize me but we had no insurance and I had little trust of giving myself to a medical system that did not even officially recognize my affliction.

Daily - I drank sodium borate water [1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon to a quart of water p/day].

Also, I followed a strict diet of no bread, no sugar and no vitamins, for a period of about 4-1/2 months during which time I starved the Candida to death.

During this time I did enjoy Xylitol in place of sugar [ a healthy natural sugar that kills fungus, molds and bacteria]. You can buy it at the health food store as well as Xylitol gums and mints. Beware of the cheaper gums at the discount stores as they generally contain aspartame, while advertising minimal amounts of Xylitol. I also enjoyed lemonade and cocoa drinks that I made with Xylitol. I also enjoyed my pero with no Xylitol or sugar.

I had read about Zell Oxygen as an ultimate cure for candida. I was finally able to get some from www.regenerativenutrition.com where they have the best pricing and availability of anywhere i could find.

When it arrived I had finally starved off the candida. So it was a bit of a stretch - but the Zell Oxygen instructions say to take this product with fruit juice [sugar]. To support the new beneficial yeast that feeds the body and nourishes the cells.

Well I did take the fruit juice and Zell Oxygen as instructed. What happened first was I noticed the candida spores germinated in a short burst - so the newly coming beneficial Zell Oxygen Yeast could move in and take over as it is an air loving beneficial yeast.

I followed the standard daily minimum dose and at the end of one bottle and one month I was free of candida and shortly after I was able to start incorporating sugar into my diet with no adverse effects.

P.S.: The people at regenerative nutrition have an excellent resource to help you find whatever you may need to get better - whatever your affliction may be.

selenium deficency and anemia appear to be the biggest factor in promoting candida growth. years ago when i had hypot i also had a severe candida infection. i found a book titled candida silver (mercury) fillings and the immune system" which eventually led me to getting my mercury fillings removed. following this and supplementation with zinc and selenium, my candida and hypot both ended. Experiments with animals show that candida growth can be increased by selenium deprivation and reduced by selenium supplementation. Since mercury depletes selenium,it makes sense that candida is higher when there are mercury fillings in the teeth. Other studies show that anemia and iron deficiency increased candida growth. there are some studies suggesting that b12 and folic acid deficiencies may be involved in candida, since deficiencies of these lead to anemia. In anemia and iron deficiency friendly bacteria cannot grow well in the body. A lack of these bacteria probably is a key factor which promotes candida growth, since candida is a fungal growth rather than a bacteria growth. Another study showed that women with recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis correlate very with the deficiencies associated with hypothyroidism. the key nutrient deficiencies are probably selenium, zinc, iron and folic acid. Taking multi vitimins just doesnt seem to work. You need to buy the vitimins minerals indivudally its worth it to rid your self of candida. I found this cure after months of research. If you sweat under your arms, taking magnesium will help this a lot. Took 3pills 3 times a day execpt for the iron, zinc 2 times a day. This really does work it doesnt take very long for this to work less than 5 days. There will sill be some itching from the fungus is still in your skin.

EC: hypot = hypothyroid

I have been struggling with Candida for over 12 years, and in the past five have found some items that help me considerably. (Yes, they will be described as products, although the breakdown of ingredience could be researched more) I found a Naturopath and he had been working with Candida patience for 25 years. I had large cystic acne on my face and chin line only, and had been struggling with the cysts once I started a yeast free diet in my late twenties. I also was having lower back pain that would wake me up from 4-5 a.m. (I found out it was also related to the Candida die-off or growth. This back pain went away once I got on a diet that worked for me.) I also, found I had developed allergies to food once I started to kill off the yeast, and probably had/have leaky gut. I did muscle testing on some food products, which the doctor told me was only 85 percent accurate, and at that point I didn't care. I was at the end of my rope fighting yeast and living with large boils of puss exploding from my face.

I began to avoid the food that was suggested, but I also began to take supplements, we increased some and decreased others. I will tell you I was tired and defeated and just wanted a normal life back, so this is my story of what worked for me.

I have a lot of metal fillings in my teeth, so there was a thought of possible mercury sensitivity, and yes they wanted me to get the filling replaced, but I couldn't afford it. There was also the mention that the yeast encircles heavy metals safely eliminating them from your body. I started my morning with a glass of water and a drop (starting at one and increasing to five) of liquid Selenium. I found this made a large difference in either the "fog" from the dye-off or the general Candida feeling. I was more alert and awake, my energy level increased from taking this.

I was tested with a lower thyroid by taking my temperature every morning. My doctor suggested taking edible Iodine. I also took this in water after my Selenium, 2 drops twice a day, or I just did four in the morning.

I was to avoid the food I was tested to not respond well too, and that included for me, wheat, gluten, dairy, chocolate, coffee, beef and pork. I didn't even look at sugar items at this point, and had been doing low-carb diets for sometime now. So I was allowed to included red potatoes and brown rice, lots of leafy greens(twice a day if possible), non-starchy veggies, and the rest I filled in with protein, nuts, and on special occasions berries (raspberries or blueberries)

If I was to advise someone on a product it would be the Tanalbit I took. I took it twice a day before lunch and dinner, two tablets each time. There is another version of it I took that had no dairy, starts with a C. It's a type of Zinc. I also tried taking Zinc supplements but everything I took made me nauseous. The only one I found that could stay down was Optizinc, probably the type or compound. I took pro-biotics an hour after each meal.

Those items helped me most of all. Also taking a very good food based vitamin to make sure I was covered. I was successful for a few years and then decided I wanted to taste some of the sweet life again. I still keep up with the Zinc and Pro-biotics, but I'm now back on the diet working to get rid of some nail fungus. I'm taking Oregano oil for 6 weeks to see how it goes, on top of using the topical remedies I've read from your site here.

Just wanted to share what has helped and worked for me. Thank you, and just to let you know, there is life after Candida... just keep at it, the fog will lift and your head will seem clearer again!

Hello. I am wanting to start taking Ted's LIME BICARBONATE FORMULA. I was wanting to know how much baking soda to add to the squeezed lime. It just says add until the fizzing stops. I don't want to add too much baking soda so can someone please tell me how approximately how much to add? Thank you

Mary, personally, I found that about 1/4 teaspoon baking soda or less to 1/2 juiced lemon or lime, is about right.

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..

Hi I have a question for Ted. I'm confused by Ted's recipe for taking ACV and Baking soda and I also think with water. I would like to try this recipe after eating a meal, but not sure how much of each to take and how much water, I have read the links but nothing seems to be clear. Any info will be great on this...

ACV =

Baking Soda =

Water =

How many times a day?

Ive had sinus problems for years and have been trying everything and Ive come to the conclusion that I most likely have Candida, and would like to try this.

Andrew, I have also had sinuses problems for many years (they stopped completely for 7 years and started again last year). I am quite all right now. I am taking Echinacea and also powder Spirullina, Chlorella and Chlorophyll. No idea whether this is what has been helping.... My nose was running the whole time and I was sneezing a lot especially during the night and when I woke up. I also think that I have Candida so little by little I am starting the diet! And I am going to try woodworm capsules advised by Gerald Green (I reviewed his book on the book section! ).

Hi Francisca I don't have the usual runny nose or anything like that, I have inflammation on my right nostril that seems to be constantly blocked over the past 30 years but the last 5 to 10 yrs has been a lot worse. Night time is usally the worst time. Ive been trying everything from Coconut oil to ACV to Colloidal silver to cayenne pepper tp grapefruit seed extract but Apple Cider Vinegar seems to keep it under control most times. Ive tried this ACV -two tablespoons with 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda and 8 ozs of water, stir it together in a glass and drink it, Im not sure if this is what Ted tried, I couldnt quite follow his instructions so hopefully I'll see a message from him on this, Im pretty sure I have a Candida allergy or wheat allergy...

For every clogged ear and nose problems, including runny or puffy nose, the answer is Bill Thompson's protocol: 4 drops of Lugol Iodine in filtered water and rinse your nose if needed twice a day until it is all cleared.

Hope this will help you as it helped me.

I must say, EarthClinic has grown so much over the past 5 years that I cannot find what I'm looking for. But that's a good thing that the site has grown. I am trying to find Ted's recipe for curing Candida. I have his direct email from past conversations but I rather not contact him when he has already listed the ingredients here. Can someone direct me or provide the link to the page where I can find his recipes for Candida. I'm not sure if someone has mentioned this before, but what about giving a tab or side bar link to all of Ted's recipes. Disregard this suggestion if it is already here on the site. I'm probably overlooking it. Thanks, Tasha

Hi Tasha... I had candida for well over 8 years, and managed to get rid of it within a year using Ted's remedies. Here is a link to where I put all of Ted's candida remedies that I used together in one area. The link leads to a comment stream where I lay out the remedies with explanations. Here is the link:

https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/mystery-diagnosis.html

At a minimum, I would use Ted's alkalizing remedies plus all the core attack remedies against candida from this protocol.

I still use all of these remedies today, haven't had a cold or flu or any illness, no aches and pains, good heart, for well over 4 years now and I'm over 60 y o. But when I had candida, it was a very different story.

I want to make this site my home page! Ted from Bangkok could just save my life if I continue to get better. I am using his baking soda remedy for a fungus I got from taking antibiotics. Although I still am suffering, I can now at least eat. Doctors I've been to have failed me and in fact, got me in this situation in the first place with their prescriptions for antibiotics and acid blockers. My fingers are still crossed as I am only on day three of his two-week treatment but at least I can say that I no longer feel like I'm on death's doorstep for most of the day. I look forward to healing completely with Ted's remedy. Thank you so much.

EC: Can you please tell us which of his baking soda remedies you are taking? He has posted quite a few of them! Thanks...

Hey guys! Great site, finally found the real people without those Cinderella stories ending up in "buy my product"! Anyway, I am candida sufferer for 3 years now, and still no significant improving. I tried with ThreeLac, 5 bags per day for two months, nothing. Once, at my 12th day of using it all red eczema from my penis disappeared but soon returned to be as persistent as before...do not know what to do anymore, tried a strict diet couple times and it almost killed me...
Best, Dave

ThreeLac cured my Panic and Anxiety Disorder and other symptoms caused by candida albicans (yeast) including PMS, hypothyroid, depression. I felt worse for 7 days then for the first time in 18 months went shopping effortlessly! I dropped back but within 6 weeks began shopping again and now 9 months later can drive and shop everywhere - effortlessly! ThreeLac made the most difference. What kept me together until I found ThreeLac was high grade vitamins from womentowomen.com and Iodoral - an iodine suuplement known to help with hypothyroid.

Throat Clearing

Posted by Mary (Yutan, Ne) on 02/24/2015

Hello, I am wanting to ask Bill Thompson a question. I just received his book in the mail a few days ago. I have started doing the borax today. My question that I wanted to ask him was can candida cause me to have a constant throat clearing? Also will the borax help to get rid of the throat clearing. I thought it would be best to ask him since he seems to know so much about candida. Thank you for passing this message along to him.

Hi Mary...In answer to you question -- yes, candida can directly infect the lungs(and so can aspergillus or mold) if your immune system is compromised.

Borax is perhaps the ultimate fungal killer, but your lung problems seems to be due to persistent, excess mucus in your bronchial and throat region. There several things you can take to help reduce the excess phlegm in these regions. Here are some options for you:

* Take 1/2 tspn sea salt in a glass of water in the morning every day(Ted's remedy).

* Take 1/2 teaspoon xylitol in water 2 or 3 times a day(Ted's remedy). Xylitol can sometimes feel acidic when you take it so if this happens just take 1/4 tspn sodium bicarbonate with some water to reduce the acidity.

* What helps to clear my own lung and nose mucus is lugol's iodine which is in my protocol. Excess iodine in the blood tends to accumulate in the alveoli or small air sacs of the lungs -- so iodine will both help to reduce the mucus as well as kill any pathogen, including yeast, that is residing in the lung region causing you problems.

All the above remedies will help to reduce and clear sputum from the lungs and throat. And they all kill fungus as well.

If you find that you have a serious lung infection causing these excess sputum problems then I would perhaps use Bill Munro's Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method(using an atomizer or nebulizer) -- shown here. For this I would be careful to use the 0.5 % FG Hydrogen Peroxide strength that Ted recommends.

I had a persistent tickly cough with excess phlegm that was causing me some grief some while ago because I couldn't sleep well. It kept going away and coming back. I tried everything but it lasted weeks. In the end, I came to the conclusion that the virus or whatever was hiding so I made sure to disinfected the following regions where pathogens can easily hide away from the immune system and from anti-pathogn nutrients:

* Ears

* Nose and sinuses

* The cavity directly behind the rear nose opening which is above the throat.

Everyday I disinfected my nostrils with four drops of lugols iodine mixed with a capful of water. I used a dropper and put this mix into each nostril and made sure it ran all the way back into the cavity behind the nose to kill all residual pathogens there. You could also use a neti pot for this as well. I sometimes used drops of 1% hydrogen peroxide(HP) with a dropper as well.

I either used 1% HP or Lugol's Iodine(with a capful of water) to disinfect my ears.

The persistent infection causing the tickly cough and excess phlegm in my throat disappeared completely within 2 days.

I was suffering from Candida so badly that I had persistent pain and blocked feeling in my ear. It was made worse by antibiotics.

I visited a TCM Practitioner who took my pulse and looked at my tongue.

She said the white coating was indicative of "Dampness in the Body", which is basically candida in TCM terms. In TCM many illnesses are attributed to "dampness". The Chinese understand it and they know how to treat it.

She prescribed a herbal formula and told me to avoid certain foods (dairy, processed foods). Also to add some foods to my diet (particularly adzuki beans and some live sauerkraut).

Surprisingly, I was advised to STAY AWAY from RAW foods and vegetables. Everything must be cooked because my digestive system is struggling and raw foods are tough on the digestive system. I also need to avoid heavy meats like beef and pork.

I was advised that grains are OKAY (except for wheat - although some sourdough is OK). I must soak grains overnight before cooking them otherwise my body will not absorb them properly.

After taking the herbs for 2 weeks, I felt 100% better. My ear pain was gone and I had lots of energy. Due to circumstances out of my control, I did not improve my diet. In fact, my diet was worse than before, yet the herbs worked.

When I ran out of herbs, my symptoms came back, but now I am in a position to alter my diet so I look forward to the results.

I hope this information helps someone as I know that many people struggle to control candida. With TCM, you don't need to follow an impossible diet, just take the herbs, add certain foods and limit others.

WARNING: Chinese medicine is quite complex and this advice was given for my specific condition. Everyone is different so you will need to consult a practioner who can assess whether you have "dampness" and/or other conditions.

I'm 32, smoked 5-10 ciggarettes/day drank 5 beers/day for 15 years. At 25 I was diagnosed with Lichen Planus... Doctors gave me cortisone cream, didn't help. Found this site a few months ago, and have done some independant research since. Ted is awesome, by the way. This post is a little fast and loose, without sources. Basically, ENT Doctors commonly use Baking Soda, Vinnegar, and Borax added to other stuff, and categorize these as anti-infectives. It appears that DCA, which is currently being tested in Canada as an anti-cancer drug is a combination of Bleach, Vinnegar, and BakingSoda... which would seem to kill a bunch of infections.

*****

Back to my problems. 3 months ago: I've got a white tongue, with bumps on the side of my mouth. I usually wake up congested, but it clears before 10am. Often I feel congested, and that makes me want another cigarrette.

I played the watch the clock game, and cut my smoking to 1 ciggarettes/day (after 7 pm)(back up to 3). I cut my drinking to 1 day per week. I started running 2 miles per day. It didn't help with my problems, although I lost 20 pounds.

I THINK that I have this thing figured out... I will post a follow-up in a few months, if I'm cured.
******
Studying Ted's "anti-infectives", first I tried going alkaline (borax and baking soda). This cleared my lungs, but made the bumps in my mouth worse.

Now I've gone in reverse, with the Apple Cidar Vinnegar only, and the bumps in my mouth are disappearing.

So here's my theory. There is a mayo-clinic study from a few years ago that says that most chronic sinus problems are caused by a fungus. As I had a yeast-like taste in my mouth, it was probably Candida. I went to the doc, and got some fluconazole, since the baking soda seemed to be clearing my lungs. Success on clearing my lungs... at least temporarily.... however, the bumbs in my mouth seemed to be getting worse.

It appears that these bumps are a "secondary infection", probably bacterial or viral. Since one problem was cured, I switched to 2 TBSP or Apple Cider vinegar, 2x per day. I had an immediate outbreak of Lichen Planus on my fingers, which appears to be dissapearing completely after a week. Additionally, the bumps in my mouth are 50% reduced.

There was a new study that came out last week that said men have cleaner hands than women, and are less likely to get skin infections, due to their hands are more acidic.

This lichen planus stuff kind of looks like warts, with a dark(blue) center. Since I've been taking ACV... the center of this stuff is red, like it's healing.
******
So I think I had Candida with a secondary infection, and the secondary infection(Lichen Planus) is cured by ACV.

I need some time to completely cure this stuff... but I think I did this in reverse. First start with the ACV to cure the secondary infection(Lichen Planus), then clear the yeast infection (Baking Soda or Borax or Flucon-azole).
******
On the white tongue... listerine doesn't help, biotene mouthwash doesn't help. Flouride toothpaste doesn't help. Brushing my tongue with either Baking Soda or Borax or Both and/or combining Hydrogen Peroxide, will turn my tongue completely red.

It will turn white again within 2 days... I've got some kind of infection. This stuff seems to help, though. I've been very impressed with that 20-mule borax stuff, in spite of the fact that the white tongue comes back.

Borax is not to be feared, just follow Ted's small dosage. His dosage is well reasoned.

to 32-y.o. Rich of boca raton. your white tongue - "thrush" - indicates your immune system is still overwhelmed by chronic systemic yeast. i had it for decades. read Dr. Crooks' The Yeast Connection. there are also other good books at your health foodstore/pharmacy which deal with chronic systemic yeast. i tried fluconazole but longterm solution is careful diet and detoxifying your environment. you MUST conquer your chronic systemic yeast, or else you will get worse health problems because your immune system is overwhelmed by yeast. i'm 57-y.o. and been there. in my case, i had to overcome various junkfood addictions, about which i was in profound denial. beware, and good luck.
