Hi I just went to get my blood checked and she said I had a lot of yeast. I wanted to know if I like fast on nothing but water (bottled) will that kill the yeast. I want to do five days but I think i'm willing to try to go longer.When she first examined the single drop of blood she said I have poor digestion which I do. She also said my antioxidant levels were low and that I had quite a bit of uric acid. She recommend a good multi, digestive enzymes, reservatrol, and a fungal cleanse. She also said my blood was acidic. I guess I just want some help with the fasting (my idea)and the supplements. Can I use supplements while fasting?? I would also like to oil pull, is this okay??

Having read many of the posts on Candida remedies I have not seen one that mentions the fact that Candida is often associated with, or perhaps even causes, leaky gut syndrome and delayed food allergies. If a person has not been having success with treatment, it is a strong possibility that they may also need to find out what foods they are sensitive to(a delayed sensitivity that may not show symptoms for a day or even longer after the food is eaten). The most common food culprits are dairy, gluten (mostly wheat and flour products), eggs, nuts, and possibly other high protein foods such as beef. By eliminating all of these for 4 days a person may find they are feeling much better. Even if the candida is being dealt with, the symptoms from the allergies, which are many of the same symptoms as candida, will not go away unless the reactive foods are eliminated, too. After the leaky gut has time to heal these foods can usually be gradually returned to the diet.
There is a lot of information on food allergy and leaky gut online, so if you think this may apply to you I would encourage you to read up on it. ELISA testing is another way to diagnose food allergies but some labs are better than others. In some areas you can have a kit mailed to you to take a spot blood sample and mail it in for the testing. However, often the culprits are high protein foods so a 4 day elimination of all high protein foods, including gluten, will be helpful for many people. It usually only takes 4 days for symptoms to clear as long as all of the reactive foods are eliminated. The foods a person is having trouble with are usually foods they eat frequently. We discovered that our omega 3 supplement had egg yolk in it, so you have to check everything you put in your mouth!
I suffered from severe systemic candida albicans for a long time. I visited several naturopaths & tried remedy after remedy. I followed the (VERY) strict diet, & lost almost 30 lbs in 1 1/2 months (which left me at 93 lbs! ) I have a large box of all the different stuff that I have tried that didn't work. I ended up getting a really bad cold & flu after about 7 months on the diet which worked unless I dared take a bite of anything I wasn't supposed to eat. Because I was so sick, I went off all the herbal suplements I was on & started taking garlic (1 clove cut up into little pieces & swallowed), 3 - 4 times per day to stop the terrible cough I had. After about a week, I was starting to feel a little better & was making a pizza for my family & couldn't resist taking a small bite of cheese & sauce (which should have produced itchy reaction within 5 minutes or less). NOTHING! I couldn't believe it! So I had a bite of the pizza including the crust (flour guaranteed a reaction! ) STILL NOTHING! NO REACTION! I ate the whole (small) pizza! NO REACTION!!! After that I went nuts! I ate everything, & if I felt any kind of reaction starting (usually just with very sugary foods), I just take a clove of garlic & within minutes I'm fine!
Update: I was really going overboard on the desserts & started having symptoms coming back, so I have to be reasonable with the sugar intake & I'm also taking a very good probiotic (70,000 billion) (I take 2) which works by far the best of the MANY that I tried) (140 billion) per day which definately helps, as I now eat almost everything!

Wow- what an info-packed webpage! I was beginning to get 2x yearly sinus infections, then read the MAYO Clinic report & made the candida connection. I have acne for years - was geting worse till I saw a site w. info on B5 for acne (clearskin.net, etc) - B5 heped my acne... but I always wondered about having candida (horreur). Most recently, I could not hear well for about 2 wks - started 600-900mg garlic 3x a dy & got sick form obvious "die-off" ugh. Still had bad hearing, so bought grapefruit seed extract - helped immediately. I dread going to see my ENT this week, I'm sure he won't know a damn thing about the Mayo/fungus news (how much are these guys paid???!!!) I've just placed anorder for CANDEX, have not rec'd it yet...I keep seeing THREELAC prodcut advertised on the web,was not sure about it.. THANKS for the wealth of Knowledge & Experience you share here.. GOOD LUCK!
Hello, Because of this wonderful site, I used many of the remedies and my candida is in check. I swallow a half of teaspoon of minced garlic twice a day plus I take 3- 00 capsule of dandelion (which I harvested in fields and dried myself then I grinned them in a coffee grinneder and fill the 00 capsules). I also take 00 capsule of turmeric and cayenne pepper daily.
Thank you all for the wonderful imputs. :)
For Bill Thompson: My son is doing Dr Hulda Clark's Herbal Parasite Cleanse, using black walnut hulls, wormwood and cloves. My question is, can he do this cleanse at the same time as doing the program for Candida outlined in your book, Candida, Killing so sweetly.
We are just on day 6 of the parasite cleanse but have not yet implemented your program. We have spoken previously, my son Eric has had Psoriasis for the past 3 years.
Your comments are appreciated.
Resistant Human pathogenic candida - new strain.. The following abstract was obtained from Pubmed.com. Are they possibly talking about the candida related to morgellons?
Mol Microbiol. 2005 Dec;58(5):1288-302.
Candida albicans MTLalpha tup1Delta mutants can reversibly switch to mating-competent, filamentous growth forms.
In a study on this same site, essential oils Dill and Geranium were successful in fighting all species of candida better than antifungals on the market.
There is a very persistent myth that Candida albicans cannot survive a high (alkaline) pH. The fact is that C. albicans can survive very acid to extremely alkaline pH. The primary difference is the form it takes on dependent on the pH. At a low (acidic) pH C. albicans remains in a less pathogenic yeast form, and its growth is inhibited. When C. albicans is exposed to a high (alkaline) pH it promotes the formation of its hyphal growth. This hyphal growth allows C. albicans to not only become pathogenic, but also to allow it to invade deep in to tissues and to promote organ damage. This hyphal growth is inhibited at an acidic pH of 4 or below reducing tissue invasion and damage.

Thank you for being there EC. Maybe you can help with another good info source.
I recently came across a very interesting and informative website 'DoctorFungus.org' chock full of information on candida and its' symptoms; plus some protocols for addressing this issue, beautifully laid out--
About a week ago, I tried to go back to the website and it seems to have vanished!! Googling and even changing browsers does not bring up anything anymore. It's just gone... Does anybody happen to know who is/was Dr. Fungus and how to get in touch with him?

I am currently suffering from all the symptoms that matches a candida overgrowth, all starting from taking 2 week course of anti biotics after being sick. Symptoms started to get worse, and now I have foggy brain and confusion, eye floaters decreased concentration, abdominal pain and diarrhea. I am not sure how to confirm if it is a candida overgrowth, as doctors here do not believe of it. I am an 18 year old male, generally fit but these past 4 months has been miserable with my health getting worse. Please do let me know what I can do. It would be great if I could contact Mr. Ted.

Hi, a very interesting website and I would like to make a comment. I am 65 and have spent thousands of pounds over the last 14 years on alternative nutritionists, Doctors, etc etc, but no one has yet cured my candida problem and there is loads and loads of other experts out on the various web pages and even on earth clinic who all more or less say the same thing: no sugar, alkalise, etc, etc, but has anyone looked at Dr L Wilson's web page and seen the connection between copper body toxicity and persistant candida that keeps coming back every year, in particular in our wet winters in the UK with lots of mold spores around the gardens etc? Well, I don't want to live in a hot dry climate like the Sahara Desert or spend the rest of my life not being able to eat a cake or some fruit now and then, so what's the answer, is Dr. Wilson correct?

This is the 1st site that I have found with information. I got tested for allergies about 4 years ago. I was told that I was allergic to Candidia Albicans. I have yet to find a doctor what to do for that. I very rarely gt sick 1 or 2 times a year but any time I take antibiotics or get run down I get thrush from the candidia. The doctors have give me Diflucan but 3 months later the candidia overgrowth is back. I would appreciate any tips or ideas of what I can do. I have tried limiting my sugar, eating healthy and other things that I have read. Thanks.
An insight summary of candida:
If you have White tongue from a probable Candida Yeast, and you found out or read on this post that an antigungal worked for a person-X and it didnt work for another person-Y, this means that person x had a mild beginners outbreak of candida or may be watching their diet; and Person-y has had Candida for a long time and getting rid of it is very possible but not easy. Because with Candid yeast Advanced, it is more important to not eat the wrong food than eating the right suuplements.
This means that while on a candida special diet the first week and you eat one wrong food eg sugar, or a candy bar, or white rice or bread, you enpower/fuel the candida and you have to start all over again. You need 2 to 3 weeks on average to get rid of it and you still have to watch for diet for a few months afterwards and slowly introduce whole grain products that are not GMO and organic. And hey you have a natural symptom checker that turns white. Please take this condition seriously because once it manifests it becomes like a cancer to get rid off. Then you might have to go on a full month of special diet or more dpending how long youve had your candida.
NO matter what supplement or treatment you are taking, if you are eating the wrong food, you cannot get rid of the candida. Its similar to Hpylori in agressiveness and resiliance for it also wreaks havoc in the immune system affecting digestion, hormones, blood, respiratory, liver, Nerves and much more.
What you cannot eat is anything with wheat or mosy grains, meaning no bread, no rice , NO GLUTEN FOOD OR ANYTHING CONTAINING SUGAR including sweet fruits, no dairy what so ever as lactose intollerance follows gluten intollerance in most people. No nuts, ony hulled walnuts, and almonds soaked in h202. NO supermarket, junk food, or fast food. Alcohol slows healing. The negative thing about coffee, is that if you are used to drinking coffee everday, then it wont do you much good to continue as it messes with your natural hormone cycles. Like natural cortisol production.
Potatoes should only be eaten in this way every other day:(the kanj recipe) peel the potatoes thick after washing them properly with h202, or clay or Apple Cider Vinegar etc. And when are you peeling them, peel it thick. That is to say, the peels should have and half a centimeter of potatoe flesh attached to it. Discard the core of the potatoe or make puree or give it away. It is the thick peels of this potatoe that you can eat. Marinate them with garlic and/or: turmeric basil thyme rosemary, spice coconut oil or cold pressed sessame oil. And put in oven until done but not to over cooked. This is high in potassium, do this every other day and this way you can eat 3 potatoe peels with lunch instead of one filling potatoe.
You can eat any Organic meat/beef, fish, chicken, sea food, turkey, or any edible anima for that matter, just as long as you cook it right, no bad oils, no frying, no bad sauce. Vegetable soup, salads everyday. Flax seeds, sun flower seeds, any vegetable. Esp pumpkin, zuchini, onion, garlic, dark greens sprouts, But no beans, except mung bean sprouts and not much of it)For fruits: you can eat green apples, pineapple, avocados, (mango and papaya, the greener the better) limes, figs, dates 2 a day. Carrot juice is vgood. Veg juice is best. Soda b and borax and h2o2 and clove oil and coconut oil and colloidal silver are all very effective when taken 5 or 6 or even 7 times a day. (3 times in the morning every hours , and 3 times in the evening every hour for 3 hrs for example) remember no sugar or gluten or wheat. Do this for 1 to 2 weeks and you will be done with candida. But take probiotics along the way. 10 billion minimum. open a capsule in cup of water one hour before food.
A word of caution: Many people that have had candida for a long time have a lowered immune system and are succeptible to other bacteria or fungi. Bacteria such as Hpylori should be checked for with an IGG blood test. And if you have hpylori or would like a more complete list of food or very effective supplements to take then check out my previous post on Hpylori posted by Frank from lebanon. It is estimated that 50 - 65 % of the general population have hpylori. NO wonder everyone is sick. Hpylori hijacks your immune system.
Other mycotoxins should be taken care of if you take about half a spoon of borax a day added to a 1. 5 litres of water, and you can add 1 spoon of 3% h2o2 to this mixture for better results.
Needless to say that making sure you get enough vitamin d is essential. 10, 000 IU a day minimum when treating. Magnesium chloride and zinc and so is: COQ10 SLENEIUM AND LOTS OF VITAMIN E AND ESPECIALLY VITAMIN C FOOD WILL HELP YOU DETOX LIKE PARSLEY. SPINACH TWICE A WEEK IS VGOOD AND EVEN BETTER IS RAW GOAT LIVER OR SHEEP LIVER OE EVEN CHICKEN LIVER IF NO BEEF AVILABLE. LIVER EVEN SLIGHTLY COOKED IS A SUPER FOOD AND WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH MANY b VITAMINS NECESSARY TO PROMOTE GOOD BENEFICIAL BACTERIA. YOU ALSO HAVE TO EAT FOOD RICH IN VITAMIN k, AS VITAMIN K HELPS YOUR BODY BUILD GOOD FLORA. BROCCOLI LETTUCE KALE ARE HIGH IN VIT K. Also drink lots of water and never over eat. Chew properly.
Remmebr to alkalize and always flush toxins out of body, by doing weekly colon cleanses and drink lots of water, take fiber or granulated lechitin. Slippery elm is also vgood to repair damage done by the candida. So it castor oil by only take one small spoon a day for 4 days. And rest 3 weeks if you want to do it again.
for the liver: milk thistle, dandelion, lemon & olive oil taken first thing in the morning , if your not taking sodium bicarbonate.
Note: take borax for a week, then rest for a week.
Sorry my random thinking is a bit unorganized but most of the info you need is here.
Ted and Bill have good alkalizing and antifungal remedies that you can also benefit from.
questions are welcome. you can email me at mido2k(at) hotmail.com to notify me if you posted a question for me on earthclinic and I will answer as soon as possible. Best regards, Franky
Hi Everyone..... I was reading some articles on MindBodyGreen and did some "clicking" and that lead me to this kinda lengthly article on candida. It was soooo informative and thought I'd post the link for those who are interested in reading. http://drlwilson.com/articles/candida.htm
