Is Candida Making You Sick?

Reposted from Tamara St. John

The reasons that people get disease are due to an overload of toxins in the body, a deficiency of nutrients, and an acidic condition. The key to regaining health is too properly remove toxins from the body and then re-introduce whole, organic foods. This is the reason why detoxification is imperative for anyone who has had or is going through cancer or any other ailment.

The Proper method of detoxification is to perform the cleansing in order of the Colon, Candida, Parasites, Kidney, and Liver. It is important to follow the correct order for detoxification in order to clear the channels of elimination for the most effective cleanse. If you have questions, ask a knowledgeable doctor (good luck finding one of those).

The Candida Cleanse: Many people suffer from conditions like eczema, psoriasis, acne, fibromyalgia, yeast infections, hormonal imbalance, autoimmune conditions, headaches, sinusitis, allergies, sugar cravings, alcohol cravings, inability to lose weight, and many other health issues. If you experience any of these conditions, it is possible that you may have an overgrowth of Candida Albicans in your body. In order to properly detox from Candida and be on the road to good health, you must have completed the Colon cleanse first to clear the channels of elimination for the most effective cleanse.
Candida overgrowth can be caused from taking antibiotics, pharmaceutical drugs, birth control pills, sugary & high starch foods, foods containing gluten, processed foods, stress, and major illness. All of these will alter the balance of good to bad bacteria in the body, creating an overgrowth of candida.
There are plenty of Candida detox kits on the market that work if you do not have chronic candida. Follow the directions on the box, which usually entails taking a set of pills for up to two weeks. If you suffer from chronic candida, you may need to utilize anti-fungal remedies; such as, grapefruit seed extract, oregano oil, garlic, pau de Arco, ginger, etc. Juicing greens daily is also a great way to rid the body of Candida and alkalize the body.

Foods that that contain an anti-fungal compound can also help to eradicate candida naturally. These foods are garlic, leeks, onions, ginger, oregano, black walnut, and pau d arco, to name a few.
After cleansing the body of candida, you can re-populate it with good bacteria in the form of probiotics. Taking probiotics during a systemic candida infection may not always work as the probiotics can even feed the bad bacteria making the condition worse. Everyone is different and only you can know if something is working for you or not. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should never detoxify the body as the toxins can pass to the baby. In an ideal world, detoxify your body prior to getting pregnant to ensure the most healthy baby.

By conducting these cleanses you will be able to free yourself from the many ailments that may have plagued you. Keep on a regular plan to detox at least annually. I like to do it as the New Year begins but it can be done at any time.

You can find a complete, detailed explanation of all detoxification methods in Chapter 6 of the “Defeat Cancer Now” book.
