The Process of Fighting Candida

I’ve spoken with hundreds, if not thousands, of men and women over the last ten years, describing their lack of energy, inability to think clearly, onset of food allergies, decreased hormones and sex drive, recurring sinus infections, poor skin conditions, chronic poor digestion, acid reflux — the list goes on. These people had sought help from numerous doctors and alternative practitioners for years, trying to get rid of their candida, and often resulting in little to no improvement and, in some cases, worsening conditions.

Even those fortunate enough to speak with a doctor who recognized that candida overgrowth was the source of their problems, often had little success in getting better. Anti-fungal medications, probiotics, herbal supplementation and candida diets would temporarily bring their symptoms under [Read more…]

Symptoms of Candida Yeast Infections

Candida yeast infections cause many different symptoms depending on what parts of your body the candida overgrowth has colonized. When you have most of the symptoms covered below, candida has been in your body a long time, and it’s just about everywhere.

If you are not sure if you have candida yeast overgrowth, take this simple candida test. It is very accurate, and won’t cost you a penny. My experience, from talking with literally thousands of people over the last ten years, is that this simple test is at least as accurate as blood tests and stool samples. Once you’ve taken it, you’ll know for sure if you have candida overgrowth and to what extent the overgrowth may be. [Read more…]

Candida Test – How To Tell If You Have Candida

Getting rid of candida is one thing. Knowing for sure that you have a candida infection is quite another. So before you buy any product to eliminate your candida, let’s see if you actually have it. Just having the symptoms of candida is not enough. You can find out if you have Candida by taking a simple home test.

THE TEST: In the evening, put a clear glass of water by your bed. First thing in the morning, briefly rinse your mouth, swallow, then gather some saliva in your mouth and spit into the glass of water (be sure to spit out saliva, not mucus). Keep an eye on the water for half an hour — especially the first few minutes. If you have candida overgrowth, you will see one or more of the following:

 

1. Strings (legs) hanging down from the saliva.

2. Heavy-looking saliva at the bottom of the glass.


3. Cloudy specks suspended in the water.

 

If, within three minutes after spitting into the water, you see “strings” hanging down, cloudy specks showing up in the water, or “debris” sinking to the bottom, you most likely have extensive overgrowth, which will require more [Read more…]

Why Is It So Hard To Get Rid of Candida?

To understand why getting rid of candida can be so much harder than knocking out a bacterial infection, you need to know how candida yeast overgrowth manifests in your body.

About 80% of the time, candida yeast infections occur when medicines, primarily antibiotics — but including birth control pills and other drugs — kill the friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract. Approximately 10% of the time candida overgrowth is caused by long term exposure to candida and its spores from your family or spouse. It can be transmitted orally through food sharing, kissing, or similar activities, and candida spores can be breathed in.

About 10% of candida overgrowth cases happen when babies pick it up from their mothers when they are born. At birth babies have no immune system and little to no friendly bacteria, so exposure to candida from their mother always results in overgrowth. The good news is that you will find the process of fighting candida much easier when adding our supplements to your regimen.

The bad news is that candida overgrowth has grown to epidemic proportions after several generations of antibiotic use — leading to a large increase in the amount of mothers with candida infecting their children at birth. This combined with the ever increasing amount of vaccines being given infants, may be fueling the epidemic of autism that our children are suffering.
