Balance your gut flora quickly, kill Candida, and eliminate disease

Gut flora

(NaturalNews) Due to the American diet, nearly every person in the United States who is in poor health or suffers from any disease is living with an overabundance of Candida.

Candida is a very opportunistic. Once this fungus takes over, it can spread throughout the body. Candida burrows into the gut lining creating holes in the intestines that allow undigested food particles and other toxins to enter the bloodstream setting off an immune response that causes allergies, inflammation, and autoimmune diseases. This is called leaky gut syndrome.

The good news is that Candida in the gut can be eradicated quickly, restoring the natural and healthy order of gut flora. Most people (even those who feel considerably ill) will see a major reduction in symptoms once this is done. But there's also bad news. Most people do have a "leaky gut" to a degree. Too much sugar equals too much Candida (and other "bad" pathogens), which equals too much leakiness in the gut.

If you have an overabundance of Candida, you have a leaky gut. The less balance in the gut flora, the more permeable it becomes. It takes months to repair a leaky gut. Once you balance the gut flora and adjust the diet so that the healthiest eco-system can thrive, going off of the healthy diet you've maintained can yield seriously painful results. Even though your body may feel like it has completely healed, it still has a leaky gut that lets sugars and whatever else that was just eaten pass through into the bloodstream undigested where there are lots of microbes waiting, lying there, starving, just hoping you'll slip up again and feed them so they can come roaring back to life.

How To Know If You Have an Overabundance Of Candida

Signs of Candida include: allergies, asthma, headaches, cancer, diabetes, and floaters. If you have almost any other ailment or disease, you have too much Candida.

If you have taken antibiotics, you need to heal your gut to rebuild the healthy bacteria in your system. If you don't have your appendix, if you get regular vaccinations, or if you have mercury fillings, you should take a good quality probiotic every day. Unfortunately, quality probiotics are expensive.

Homemade sauerkraut and other fermented foods have lots of great health benefits, but they are not going to take the place of a high quality probiotic. The stomach acid usually kills most of the beneficial bacteria they contain, so these foods don't go as far to balance the gut as most people think.

It's not just white sugar and high fructose corn syrup that feed Candida. Agave nectar, coconut sugar, dates, fresh pressed fruit, carrot or beet juices, raw honey, and brown rice syrup all feed Candida as well.

The Diet

A healthy diet consists of 80% (or more) raw, fresh, organic produce - more vegetables than fruit. This diet is imperative for anyone who is ridding the body of Candida. Big salads (at least ten different vegetables as well as various seeds, herbs and spices) are the foundation of a healthy diet that balances the digestive system.

Eliminate refined, processed foods. Eat only whole foods. Make smoothies with coconut water, whole pineapple (it's juicy), unsweetened nut milk, or water instead of fruit juice. Make nut milks at home with sprouted nuts. Take extra supplements when consuming pineapple or grapes, as they are very high in sugars, and remember to limit fruit until your gut is balanced.

Gluten and Candida do not mix. If the gut is unwell, gluten is causing serious problems. No one with Candida overgrowth should attempt to digest gluten. A gut with an excess of Candida has holes in it. When gluten breaks through the gut undigested, it is toxic to the body.

Do not drink anything that is sweetened unless it's sweetened with stevia. Anyone with hypoglycemia or diabetes should use stevia with caution, as it can be problematic, but it doesn't feed Candida. The second source below has a cranberry lemonade recipe to help detox.


Supplements that are known to combat fungus include (but are not limited to) wormwood, black walnut hull, Spanish black radish, pau d'arco, goldenseal, coptis chinensis, ginger, cinnamon, and olive leaf extract. All of these are great to have around, and a few of them are exceptional at killing parasites, viruses, and bacterial infections (coptis chinensis, wormwood, black walnut hull, Spanish black radish) but while they are certainly antifungal, they're not the strongest solution to kill excess Candida.

A great combination for eliminating excess yeast in the body and balancing the gut flora is undecenoic acid, very high quality probiotics, and an intestinal detox that repairs the gut and kills parasites. It's also a good idea to use an additional supplement that's a parasite killer such as a supplement with wormwood and black walnut hulls.

Don't Get Complacent

Candida can lie dormant for up to six months. When everything is back in control, keep in mind that Candida is always ready and able to spring back to life if it's fed. One good sugar binge and the battle is back on. You have to keep the gut balanced, even after you heal it with a proper diet.
