Candida yeast – fungi infection

                          Right at the beginning, let me make one thing perfectly clear; I do not have any vested interest in any of the products mentioned below.

Please note; this article is presented for your information only; and is not

intended for the use in self-diagnosis or self -treatment of any condition or a disease, be it mental or physical. Always seek advice from competent Health Professionals.

Check yourself.

Test # 1 – The Itch Test

Do you have an itchy scalp, itchy eyes, and itchy patches, anywhere in or on your body? Do your ears need a good scratch on the inside? Do your feet or toes itch? Write down when you need to scratch ANY part of your body and when. You will be amazed at how often you touch your body without even being aware, particularly if you have a candida problem and are itchy. You become so used to itching your body that you actually become totally unaware of its presence. Does your anus itch? Do your feet or hands itch? Look for recurrent itching anywhere and record them for two days.

The lady in this picture has a typical candida skin itch which may be diagnosed as something like “eczema” or even “psoriasis” by some practitioners. Skillful questioning and case taking by the practitioner will elicit a more accurate diagnosis of candida yeast infection, particularly in cases in which the patient has not only an itchy skin and possibly a visible red rash, but in addition there may be other symptoms such as sweet cravings, toe nail fungus and a vaginal irritation. As usual, look at the entire picture. Do you have several symptoms indicative of a candida infection? Itching skin is a classic symptom, and can be often genital, hands, feet, scalp, around the ears or in any warm, moist and dark place of the body, these are the favorite “hideouts” of candida.

Test # 2 – The Craving Test

Become more aware of what you eat, but particularly what you LIKE to eat, how often and when. Those with a yeast infection, and especially a fungal overgrowth in their digestive tract may well crave sweet foods without even knowing it. Do you want something sweet routinely after your evening meal? Do you want something sweet between meals? We could even be referring to breads (especially the white refined supermarket variety) biscuits or cookies (any – they all contain sugar), chocolate bars (that small one you get when you fill your car), that sugar you put into your coffee several times a day, that donut you have a few times per week. Many of us enjoy a sweet treat now and again, but what we may be blissfully unaware of is that we are feeding a lot more than just ourselves – we are feeding a yeast population inside of screaming for food and attention.

People say; “I don’t eat any sugar!” or : “I don’t have sugar in my coffee or tea” but then an hour later they have a cookie, or a soda drink, muesli bar or even a fruit drink which all contain sugar. These folk may even have a glass of wine or can of beer each night yet they “don’t have any added sugar” in their diet.

In the year 1900, the average person consumed less than two pounds of sugar in one year. And today, the average person consumes more than one and a half times their body weight in sugar. Is it any wonder we have a proliferation of these candida yeast bugs in our digestive systems? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that we are busy feeding these bugs up several times a day.

Try this trick, eat NO sweet foods for three days and see how you feel. I am not talking about fruits and vegetables, but do avoid citrus like oranges and mandarins. Just keep away from these sugars or any foods or drinks containing them for three days: sugar and other quick-acting carbohydrates including sucrose, high-glucose corn syrup, fructose, maltose, lactose, glycogen, glucose, mannitol, sorbitol, and galactose. Also avoid honey, molasses, maple syrup, maple sugar, and date sugar. Look at labels and packaging and STOP these foods for 72 hours.

Did you crash, develop a headache; feel tired or funny in any way? Then you were too dependent on sugar and may have an addiction here. This test will make a real candida sufferer feel terrible, they may literally feel like “climbing the wall” to get to their sugar fix on the other side. (Use Stevia instead of refined sugar)

Three days is all you need, but you have to be very strict and just focus on fresh vegetables, meats, whole grains, nuts, seeds and water. In Chinese medicine they say that a person either likes sweet or likes bitter foods, if you love sweet foods you are less inclined to like bitter and the other way around. Here is a partial list of bitter foods and drinks; artichokes, bitter melon, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, chicory, chard, chayotes, courgettes, cress, cucumbers dandelion, endive, leaves of rhubarb,  lettuce, melons, most mushrooms, mustard greens, olive oil, pak choi, pumpkins,   radicchio, rocket, rutabaga, tender leaves of Milk Thisle, thistles, tomatoes, uncured olives, grapefruit juice, lemon juice, natural beer, silverbeet sugar free chocolate, some dark wines, juniper gentian spirit and coffee( without sugar), dandelion root coffee or tea, Swedish bitters or bitter herbal medicines like gymnema, gentian or any of the liver or gall bladders herbal medicines are also good to take for a few weeks. The more bitter foods you become to like the less sweet foods you will begin crave. Bitter foods help liver and gallbladder to function optimally. You will excrete more waste and toxins, burn more fat and kill more bad bugs in your digestive system as well.

Test # 3 – The Spit Test

 Most of the people will have a positive test, and in itself it is not a proof of anything.

First thing in the morning rinse your mouth several times, before you put anything in your mouth, get a clear glass fill with water and work up a bit of saliva, then spit it into the glass of water.  Check the water every 15 minutes or so for up to one hour. If you have a problem with yeast, you will see strings (like legs) travelling down into the water from the saliva floating on the top, or “cloudy” saliva will sink to the bottom of the glass, or cloudy specks will seem to be suspended in the water.   If there are no strings and the saliva is still floating after at least one hour, you may well have no yeast problem. But do make sure you eat NOTHING before you do the spit test or you will not get the results you are looking for. If “spider webs” develop very quickly the probability of infection is much higher.

Test # 4 – The Smell Test

Do you have a bad smelling feet or shoes? Check your tongue in the mirror, is it always coated and your breath offensive? Poor smelling feet, armpits and bad body odor in general tells you have a bad bacterial population in your digestive system as well as the around the periphery (the skin) of your body. This could be a key sign of dysbiosis or bacterial overgrowth in the small and large intestinal tract. Your breath should not smell “putrid” like the bottom of a bird cage in the morning, it should not be offensive.

You may have gum disease, but if your teeth and gums are fine then you may well have a bacterial or a yeast infection issue somewhere in your digestive system.

If you have lots of gas, burping, bloating and digestive discomfort you are probably fermenting bugs in your gut and producing gas as a byproduct.

Healthy people with great digestive systems and proper bowel flora generally have a clean pinkish tongue), their breath is sweet smelling and they rarely have a bloating or gas problem. Do not mix fruit with any other food, always eat it on an empty stomach.

 Hundreds of patients with bowel cancer suffered from gas, bloating, irregular bowel motions at times, and paid little to no attention for many years to the trivial digestive complaints we all get from time to time. But in retrospect, they’d wished they had paid more attention to these signs and symptoms of an impending problem. And then one day they passed a bit of blood and the diagnosis quickly followed. It’s a shame that many don’t value real health…until they have a lack of it. And then it’s often too late.

Test # 6– The Candia-5 Blood Test

 If you have serious symptoms and suspect a systemic ( blood ) infection( which is rare) you should consider a blood test CanDia5® Is the world’s first and only blood based professional home test for candidiasis. This accurate test utilizes just a small drop of whole blood taken from a finger stick to provide accurate diagnosis within 5 minutes. This is the test I recommend for physicians to use in their clinics, and for patients to use at home – it is simply brilliant and will tell you within minutes if you have a candida yeast infection. An especially useful test when used with the other 4 tests above.

CanDia5 is the only known test which can accurately detect the presence of not only candida albicans, but for antibodies of the four common candida species C.albicans, C.glabrata, C.tropicalis and C.parapsiloiss

If you are certain that you have some kind of candida infection, here is the protocol we recommend;

#1 Purchase Lufenuron in powder form ( www.owndoc.com , or Vaughter Wellness) and follow the instructions ( others sell it for a very high price, and this is 99.3 % pure and a best form).It comes in 9 gram packets. It is all you need, unless infection is systemic. Follow online instructions.

#2 Purchase Candizyme and Serra Enzyme (or similar brand serrapeptase)

#3 Purchase Acidophillus –bifidus probiotic friendly bacteria, and use at the same time.

The results should be dramatic.

Lufenuron can cure vaginal yeast, oral Candida, Candida rashes and intestinal Candidiasis. More serious semi-systemic or systemic Candidiasis may need multiple treatments and are at least temporarily improved. The Lufenuron (9 grams) is “loaded” into the fatty tissues over a period of three days, and then slowly releases, maintains tissue concentrations high enough to kill the Candida for two weeks. Lufenuron is not metabolized or eliminated by the liver or kidneys, but excreted through the feces. Lufenuron is about as toxic as orange juice. Human cells have a way of fighting Candida: They produce the enzyme Chitinase, which, like Lufenuron, causes holes in the fungal cell wall, by dissolving Chitin. (Bananas, chestnuts, kiwis, avocados, papaya, tomatoes,strawberries, peaches, potatoes, and chestnuts for example, all contain significant levels of chitinase. You can also purchase it from a health food store.)Than immune system goes to work and destroys the fungi.

Candida is so hard to kill because roughly half of its cell wall is made of the extremely hard Chitin. The other half is Ergosterol. Chitin is the same material as the exo-skeleton of insects like fleas and intestinal parasites. It’s hard to crush a flea because its Chitin armor is so strong. We have no use for Chitin in our bodies. But a fungus deprived of Chitin dies, because the Chitin literally prevents it from “bleeding out” through holes in the cell wall.

There exist other Chitin-blockers, but Lufenuron is uniquely non-toxic.

Candizyme  contains cellulase and hemicelluse that eats the biofilm and cell wall.  Protease to eat the polypeptides and nucleus and the starch eating enzymes lysozyme, amylase, lactase, malt diastase and glucoamylase to help with the polysaccharides in the biofilm. This is a pretty good formula for breaking through the biofilm and eating the cell wall of candida yeast. However, Candizyme lacks an enzyme that eats the fibrinogen in the biofilm, so it is also incomplete.

Take it with SerraEnzyme (or similar brand Serrapeptase) so you have an enzyme that will eat the fibrinogen in the biofilm. 

If you added acidophilus-bifidus probiotic you would have a very good candida yeast killing combination. I would take one or two capsules every time I took any of the enzymes above.

BioFase enzymes for yeast is very similar to all the above enzyme formulas. It contains cellulase and hemicellase to eat the plant component in the biofilm and yeast cell. Glucoamylase, amylase and invertase to eat the polysaccharides in the biofilm and protease to eat the polypeptides of the biofilm and nucleus of the yeast cell. BioFase also includes a serrapeptase enzyme that eats the fibrinogen of the biofilm making it a complete yeast eating enzyme. Serrapeptase also goes into the blood stream and cleans the blood of dead tissue, blood clots, plaque, cysts, fibrin and other unwanted microbes. You can learn more about BioFase on the internet.

While die-off reactions usually do not occur with these enzymes for yeast infection, a few people may experience nausea, a “burning sensation” in the stomach, or abdominal cramping. This is because the enzymes may aggravate pre-existing disturbances in the GI tract. If this occurs, I suggest using one third of a capsule, twice daily, emptied into eight ounces of warm water, and building up from there. To avoid this problem to start with take one capsule your first day, two your second day, and so on, until you reach the full, three capsule two times per day regimen.

Candida is a yeast which grows inside all of the population, 35 % of people have some kind of yeast infection at any given time. During a lifetime, 80 percent of all women are likely to have at least one vaginal Candida infection, and up to 50 % have two or more.

 Lately, Candida infections have been reaching epidemic proportions. I suspect weakened immune system, among many other things, as the main culprit.

The genus Candida includes around 155 species. Among these, six are most frequently isolated in human infections. While Candida albicans is the most abundant and significant species, Candida tropicalis, Candida glabrata, Candida parapsilosis, Candida krusei, and Candida lusitaniae are also isolated as causative agents of Candida infections. Importantly, there has been a recent increase in infections due to non-albicans Candida, such as Candida glabrata and Candida krusei.

Candida overgrowth (candida albicans) can lead to candida yeast infection and Leaky Gut Syndrome which is medically referred to as intestinal permeability. Leaky gut is a major gastrointestinal disorder that occurs when openings develop in the gut wall. These tiny holes can be created when candida overgrowth moves to a more serious stage of candida yeast infection and the candida yeast grows roots or hypha (plural hyphae) which is a long, branching filamentous cell of a fungus. This fungal growth is a more advanced stage of development in the candida albicans yeast infection. The hyphae spreads the bowel wall cells apart so that acidic, harmful microorganisms and macromolecules are then able to pass through (leak) these openings and enter the circulatory system. Thus the name Leaky Gut. The body is alerted to the invader and creates antibodies for protection, activates the immune system, and thus is born a food allergy. Food allergies are directly linked to leaky gut and candida yeast infection overgrowth.

As a result, leaky gut syndrome and candida yeast infection can directly lead to many other systemic inflammatory and immune-related symptoms beyond food allergies, including rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, multiple sclerosis, eczema, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, Raynaud’s phenomenon, chronic urticaria (hives), and inflammatory bowel disease. These are all generally referred to as conditions of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Thus candida yeast infection and candida overgrowth is related to IBS in all its forms. Major signs and symptoms of leaky gut syndrome include:

  • Facial swelling upon exposure to strong smells
  • Bloating, gas, and cramps immediately after eating
  • Alternating bouts of constipation and diarrhea
  • Headaches
  • Food Allergies
  • Irritability
  • Lack of concentration

Inflammation of the gut lining, often involving candida yeast overgrowth; it is the primary symptom of leaky gut syndrome and IBS. The originating cause may be Rx drug use and antibiotics which kill off healthy probiotic flora. Gut inflammation, from candida yeast infection, is usually instigated by one or several of the following factors:

  • Prescription hormones (e.g., birth control pills and/or hormone replacement therapy) and prescription corticosteroids (e.g., hydrocortisone).
  • Excessive use of antibiotics which kills off health bacteria, causing dysbiosis, candida overgrowth and candida yeast infection.
  • Processed foods, as well as foods and beverages contaminated by parasites, fungus, and/or mold which promote the growth of candida yeast infection.
  • Increased amounts of refined carbohydrates (e.g., candy bars, cookies, cake, soft drinks, and white bread) which also promote the growth of candida yeast overgrowth and dysbiosis.
  • Increased alcohol and caffeine consumption. Remember that alcohol is a natural result of yeast overgrowth and sugar.

·         About 80% of the time, candida yeast infections occur when medicines, primarily antibiotics, 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 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 child 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.

There are well over a hundred signs that point out to a Candida infection, here are some:

·         Sore Throat

·         Bloating

When you read the above, you may be skeptical and say; “oh, but these symptoms can be caused by many different things”, and yes you could be right.

A quick search on a medical website or wiki will show these symptoms and more, in fact there are thought to be over 100 different symptoms that can be expressed in someone with Candida

 

As more studies are done on Candida infection, it is being realized that this yeast is a serious contributor to many illnesses that now include:

  • Alcoholism
  • Asthma
  • Addison’s Disease
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • IBS
  • PMS
  • Depression
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Psoriasis
  • Arthritis, etc.

The following figures concerning the coexistence of Candida and cancer have been collected by several authors, they show the percentage of tumors that show Candida present in cancer tumors after death.

– R.L. Hopfer: 79%
– W. T. Hughes: 91%
– Kaben: 80%
– T.E. Kiehn: 97%

Italian oncologist (a cancer doctor), Tullio Simoncini, has long been an advocate of the fungal hypothesis in regards to cancer.

Cancer specialists know for a long while that fungi is always present in cancer. They say; when area is affected by cancer, cells are weakened and fungi moves in. Dr.Simoncini states exactly the opposite; fungi invades the healthy cells first and that causes cancer.

Dr.Simoncini:”I have treated hundreds of patients. Most of them had extremely advanced cancer, especially after having been subjected to conventional therapies. Many of them made a complete recovery and are still alive and well years after the treatment. In the cases of cancers caught early (lumps smaller than 3cm, with minimal incidence of metastasis) 90% of patients have made a recovery. The basic concept of my therapy is the (intravenous) administration of a solution with a high content of sodium bicarbonate directly onto tumors. These are susceptible to regression only if one destroys the fungal colonies.

 

Women are particularly more susceptible to Candidiasis. The list of signs and symptoms mentioned in various sources for Vaginal candidiasis includes the 18 symptoms listed below:

 

Candida truly is its own life form, being part vegetable, animal, and bacterial in nature. It is this ability to adapt and change form, or shape shift, that causes it to be so hard to eradicate from the human body. The cellular wall of fungi is composed of mannoproteins and chitin, which itself is composed of cellulose and hemicellulose. Chitin is vegetable in nature and what gives the cell its rigidity.

Roots of candida fungi are composed of one cell thick filaments that are often called hyphae, and are very similar to roots of plants, since fungi feed from these hyphae. These roots can puncture intestinal walls and organs in the human body creating leaky gut syndrome and other negative effects. Fungi feed through the hyphae. Spores they produce, by releasing exoenzymes into the surrounding substrate, they attach looking for glucose.

 In the case of vaginal candida albicans it becomes invasive by first puncturing the lining of the vaginal skin with the mycelial form with hyphae. If the food supply is good it begins to produce spores that can double its population in an hour. If the food supply is lean then it sends out more hyphae in search of food. Candida’s primary food source is simple carbohydrates which it uses to produce carbon so it can grow. Yeast most of the time lives within the intestinal environment of the human body and usually causes no problems. But due to various environmental and other factors, it switches to an invasive multicellular form known as candida, from a unicellular or yeast form, and begins to reproduce very rapidly. As it spreads it builds a biofilm, much like helicobacter pylori does, as a means of protection. These biofilms can range from 25 to 450 μm thick and begin to appear within the first 24 hours of colonization. One structure of invasive candida grows as a smooth white colony, and one grows as a rod like flat gray colony. This can be the same species of candida and it can switch between the phases as a method of adaptation. Another strain of candida known to undergo switching or as I like to say, shape shifting, produces seven different types of colonies.

Yeast can be either anaerobic or aerobic, and in the absence of oxygen they produce their energy by converting sugars into carbon dioxide and ethanol, and you wonder why you have brain fog? They can reproduce asexually or sexually, and during asexual reproduction the cell divides as a new bud to produce a new yeast cell. It clones itself, and has the ability to shape shift and take 7 different forms while rearranging chromosomes as an adaptive strategy to insure survival. No wonder it is so hard to get rid of!

Enzymes for yeast infection are safe for children and the recommended dose is one-half capsule, twice daily, for each 40 pounds of body weight. For ages 14 and up, adult recommendations may be followed.

Over a lifetime, the average person ingests more than 25 tons of food that provide the nutrients each of us needs to survive. Unfortunately, this food may also contain harmful bacteria, viruses, and toxins that can be damaging to the system.

When much of your friendly flora have been destroyed, and your immune system has weakened, the oxygen-loving candida yeast begin to flourish, morphing into anaerobic candida fungi. No longer needing an oxygen-rich blood supply, the fungi are able to exist anywhere in the body. Initially, these candida fungi are primarily in the intestinal tract. There, the toxic waste they chemically produce (acetylaldahyde, the same chemical that causes a hangover) Holes created by roots (hyphae) enable candida to travel throughout the body, over time establishing themselves systemically.

 The leaky gut also allows partially digested food to enter the bloodstream. This food is not able to be used by your cells, and your immune system must get rid of that food. Over time, people develop food allergies, a sure sign of candida overgrowth. Candida yeast loves sugar, excreting chemicals that cause you to crave sugars and all types of carbohydrates. Of course, as the yeast digests the food sugars before your body can use them, your cravings may be caused by low blood sugar levels.

During the nighttime, when you are fasting, the candida have plenty of time to be consuming your blood sugar. To compensate for this lack of sugar, your adrenals have to work extra hard, eventually leading to adrenal fatigue. (The acetylaldahyde also causes fatigue.) The thyroid gland is linked with the adrenal glands. As the adrenal glands wear down, the thyroid gland also starts to perform poorly, leading to decreased temperature regulation and low metabolism.

About 70% of all candida overgrowth occurs in women (if we consider the population of people over 15 years of age). As both men and women are equally exposed to antibiotics, this increase lies somewhat with the use of birth control pills, and primarily with candida’s fondness for progesterone.

Candida likes to eat progesterone.

Women often have flare-ups coinciding with their period (menstruation) — a time when progesterone levels are higher.

Herbs like Pau D’Arco, Olive Leaf Extract, Oregano Extract, Grapefruit Seed Extract, and coconut-based aplitic acid, also do a good job of killing candida, but a poor job of eliminating candida yeast overgrowth for good.

Candida fungi can mutate to become immune to both anti-fungal herbs as well as anti-fungal drugs.

So, initially, after taking high doses of herbs, it may seem as though your candida infection is gone — when, in reality, it is not. Even if your blood can become free of candida, there will be candida hiding in tissues throughout your body. And candida sometimes will have formed dense masses which can’t be penetrated by these herbs.

Secondly, when you attack candida, it is stimulated to release spores. The production of candida spores is how fungi and mold reproduce. Candida tend to fight back when they are being attacked, assuring their survival by releasing spores, which can lodge anywhere in the body, awaiting just the right conditions to reactivate. They remain “dormant” so long as they sense the immune cells trying to attack. As spores, they tend to attract only a minor response from the immune system, dragging out the condition for years.

I recommend using Lufenuron, in combination with anti-candida enzymes and probiotics, once a year.

 

 

Candida Albicans is a fungal yeast.

Our gut is also full of natural bacteria that feed on the yeast and keep levels to a low number to stop it from becoming a problem.

The yeast becomes problematic when it grows beyond normal levels and spreads throughout the gastrointestinal tract, into the bloodstream and from there throughout the body.

Once it’s loose in your blood-stream, it is now a systemic infection the yeast then does something remarkable and changes into fungus… This fungus now settles itself into your tissue and a fungal colony quickly spreads.

The fungus wrecks havoc on your body, and excretes over 300 different mycotoxins into your blood stream as a result of its own digestive processes.

Systemic fungal infections (fungemias) including those by C. albicans have emerged as important causes of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients (e.g., AIDS, cancer chemotherapy, organ or bone marrow transplantat C. albicans biofilms may form on the surface of implantable medical devices. In addition, hospital-acquired infections by C. albicans have become a cause of major health concerns.

  • Oral thrush – “Thrush” is the common name for the mouth infection caused by Candida albicans. It is a superficial, sometimes recurrent infection that affects moist surfaces around the lips, inside the cheeks and on the tongue and palate. Oral thrush is generally not contagious.
  • Oesophageal thrush (Oesophagitis) – Oral thrush can spread to the oesophagus which is the connecting passage between the mouth and the stomach.
  • Cutaneous (skin) candidiasis – Candida can cause infections in areas of skin that are moist and receive insufficient ventilation. Some common sites include the nappy/diaper area (“nappy rash” or candidal dermatitis) in babies; the webs of fingers and toes; the groin and the crease of the buttocks; the skin under large breasts; and the fingernail beds.
  • Vaginal yeast infection or candida vaginitis – Yeast infection of the vaginal area is common. If the infection is also present at the vulva (the area around the entrance to the vagina), the condition is known as vulvovaginal candidiasis. The infection commonly occurs as a result of selfcontamination with yeast organisms from the rectal passage. Sexual transmission is possible but unusual.. They are often included among the sexually transmitted diseases because they may occur with other types of reproductive system infections.
  • Balanitis – A less common but equally irritating infection at the glans of the penis and beneath the foreskin.
  • Systemic candidiasis – A condition which only affects people with compromised immune systems, for example, those who are HIV-positive, chemotherapy, have cancer or are on immune suppressive drugs after organ transplantation. Candida fungi contaminate the bloodstream and spread throughout the body, causing severe infection. Typical organs that can be affected include the brain, eye, liver and heart.

·         In a healthy person, the growth of candida is kept in check by a properly functioning immune system and the presence of the friendly bacteria.

·         However, certain internal and external factors can change the normal environment and trigger an overgrowth of the yeast. Candida fungi can multiply out of control if the numbers of friendly bacteria are reduced, the immune system is weakened, or other conditions for yeast proliferation occur.

·         When fungal growth at a certain body site exceeds the body’s ability to control it, yeast infection develops. The fungi related to Candida are ever present in the body, but they multiply uncontrollably under certain circumstances like- lowered resistance power to infection caused as a result of bigger diseases like HIV or Cancer, high blood sugar, radiation, chemotherapy, aging, or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection; surgical causes, when introduced into the body through I.V. or urinary catheter use, drug abuse and hyper-alimentation.

·         Other common reasons for Candida infection result from – excessive use of antibiotics, if genetically passed on from mother to infant, the increased use of I.V. therapy, especially for patients, with HIV infection.

.There are also Anti-fungal allopathic medications…

The problem with medications, such as azole anti fungals, is that they are very toxic, and place a great deal of stress on the kidneys and liver.

Candida is one of the few things that can actually cross the blood-brain barrier

…and when the fungus takes off in the brain and sets up its mycelium (mushroom) like network in your brain, the most common symptoms are depression, anxiety, and foggy thinking, and possibly has implications in Dementia and Alzheimer’s

 

Lufenuron and enzyme protocol quickly leads to catastrophic failure of a cell wall in multiple spots, causing its contents to run out, killing the Candida fungus. In other words, the fungus leaks to death, its protoplasm (its insides) simply escapes due to the intracellular pressure.

Chitin synthesis inhibitor is an inert compound that works on Chitin only – no system in the human body uses chitin so it has zero effect on our vital systems. The chitin synthesis inhibitor is absorbed into your fatty tissue and released slowly over several weeks.

This treatment is exceptionally unique because it crosses the blood-brain barrier, and can deal with Candida fungal infections inside the brain.

Lufenuron is a totally inert chemical that has no effect on ANY of the human systems. The compound has been tested for many years on mammals and has shown consistently to have zero adverse effects, even when taken in massive dosages. The chitin synthesis inhibitor will begin dissolving the protective coating of the fungus within the first few days of you taking the course. Chitin Synthesis Inhibitor is a pharmaceutical grade laboratory created inert compound (Luferunon), extracted with natural palm oil methods, which acts solely on chitin based organisms such as Candida fungus.

This is NOT to be confused with the agricultural grade Luferunon used for insecticide use, created with chemical solvents and is 5-7% pure.  Luferunon is certified by the SGS with a 99.3% purity,

Once the healing crisis is over (usually in a few days) then you will feel more energy and better health than you have in a long time.

Some reaction is completely normal and is known as a ‘healing crisis’ or a ‘Jarisch-Herxheimer’ reaction.

What is basically happening is that the chitin synthesis inhibitor is doing its job and destroying the chitin protection of the fungus. This means that your body now is able to attack the fungus and kill it.

This rapid killing off of the Candida means that toxins are released into the body which can make you feel a bit poorly.

This is only temporary as very quickly the treatment will have killed the majority of the fungus and within a few days of the die off reaction you will be feeling a LOT better than you did before!

Everyone has Candida yeast in there gut, it is natural and should be there. The problem arises when the Candida yeast in the gut manages to invade the bloodstream and develop into another form which is Candida fungus. Due to Candida being ever present in our bodies in the yeast form it makes it more difficult to test, for as the test must be able to differentiate between fungus and yeast. This results in only blood testing as a reasonably reliable testing method.

Is it suitable for children?

As a child’s immune system is still developing we would not recommend this treatment for anyone under 18 years of age.

Is it suitable if I am pregnant?

We would not recommend this treatment for pregnant women or women breast feeding

Is it a pesticide?

There are two forms of this compound, one of which is used in agriculture (5%) as a pesticide. However, the compound that is used as a treatment for candida is pharmacy grade (99.3%) and is created using an entirely different process using natural oils.

What are the side effects?

The Lufenuron treatment has no side effects – however, a die off reaction can occur which is often confused with being a side effect. Candida die off, sometimes referred to as the Herxheimer Reaction, occurs when the excess candida yeasts in our system literally “die off”, producing toxins at too rapid a rate for our bodies to process and eliminate.

As the body works to detoxify, you may experience symptoms including dizziness, headache, “foggy” headedness, eye floaters (the little blurs in vision which can be detected when the eyeball moves back and forth), depression, anxiety, heightened anger reactions, gas & bloating, flatulence, diarrhea, constipation, joint pain, muscle pain, body aches, sore throat, general malaise, exhaustion, need for more sleep, sweating, chills, nausea, skin breakouts, or other symptoms.

The treatment will only work on existing fungal colonies and does not leave you immune to new ones developing after the treatment. People do sometimes go back to a diet and lifestyle that can result in new fungal colonies developing over time.

  • Antibiotics reduce the number of friendly intestinal bacteria which normally help to keep candida under control.
  • Medications such as steroid hormones, immunosuppressant and anti-inflammatory drugs, chemotherapy drugs and ulcer medications or acid blockers used for prolonged periods.
  • Immune deficiency. Diseases such as AIDS and cancer can weaken the immune system. The immune system can also become weaker in the elderly.
  • Diabetics are prone to yeast infections, especially when their blood sugar levels are not well controlled. High levels of sugar in the blood and urine, and a low resistance to infection are conditions that encourage yeast growth.
  • Certain genetic disorders, such as celiac disease (which involves intestinal malabsorption) or haemochromatosis (in which iron accumulates in body tissue).
  • Hormonal imbalance, as a result of menstruation, pregnancy, diabetes or birth control pills (usually in the first three months of taking them) or thyroid disease.
  • During their lifetimes, about 80 percent of all women are likely to have at least one vaginal candida infection before they reach menopause, and up to 50 percent will have two or more. Women tend to be more susceptible to vaginal yeast infections if they are under stress, have an inadequate diet, have lack of sleep or are ill. Although it is not classified as a sexually transmitted disease, yeast infections are common among younger women (ages 20 to 40), especially after becoming sexually active.
  • If a woman has a vaginal yeast infection when she gives birth, the baby may get yeast (thrush) in its throat or digestive tract.
  • When the balance between commensal (friendly) and pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria in the normal intestinal flora is disturbed, for example due to excessive alcohol consumption and certain chemicals.
  • A moist, warm environment. Yeast infections often develop where a moist, warm environment encourages fungal growth. Prime areas include the webs of fingers and toes, nails, genitals and folds of skin. This is particularly the case in diabetics. Avoid synthetic tight clothing.
  • Tight clothing, especially underwear that promotes moisture build-up.
  • Being obese (over 20 percent overweight).
  • Thrush is a common minor infection in babies and young children.
  • People whose work requires that they spend long periods of time with their hands in water, or who wear rubber gloves, are predisposed to cutaneous candidiasis.
  • Candida in the male genital area (balanitis) has been found to be more common in males with diabetes, and can sometimes result from intercourse with an infected partner.
  • In rare cases, the candida fungus may invade the body at certain sites: intravenous (IV) tube, urinary catheter, tracheostomy, ventilation tubing or surgical wounds. If the infection spreads through the bloodstream to the kidneys, lungs, brain or other organs, it can cause serious systemic complications. These develop only in people who are seriously ill or who have other health problems that weaken the immune system.

It may be a vanity issue, but few issues are more frightening that dealing with hair loss. Hair loss – whether it’s thinning, receding or bald spot is forming – represents one of the most recognizable and psychologically devastating signs of aging. It can affect self-confidence as well as your professional and personal life. Hair loss – although not a common symptom among Candida sufferers – is a symptom that should still be addressed, primarily because it does not necessarily mean you will be bald forever. Candidiasis sufferers as young as 20 have reported thinning or loss of hair, and while one might attribute that to stress, aging or genetics, sometimes the issue a little less serious than that. Candida can cause – fortunately not permanent – hair loss and we’re going to find out how this sinister yeast not only gets under your skin but into your head.

To prevent the continued overgrowth and increased severity of Candida, the best and most effective method of treatment is a dietary lifestyle change. The Candida yeast primarily feeds on sugar as its main source of energy. Eliminate all monosaccharaides from your diet.

If hair loss has been a rather spontaneous issue for you, then perhaps it is in your best interest to look into a possible Candida infection. If your physician has deterred you from such a possibility, then try testing for yourself with the help of CandDia5’s at home test kit. It’s a simple, safe and easy way to test for Candida with fast and accurate results.

Hair loss doesn’t always have to do with age or genetics. It’s something that may come with the territory when dealing with a Candida infection. So if you’re already aware or are unsure, look into treating yourself of Candida, it’ll be the difference between a head full of hair or the rather unsightly appearance of a barren head.

Due to Candida being ever present in our bodies in the yeast form it makes it more difficult to test for as the test must be able to differentiate between fungus and yeast. This results in only blood testing as a reasonably reliable testing method.

A good start is the addition of probiotics in the form of yogurt and kefir as these will add to the good gut bacteria needed to keep dangerous bacteria at bay.

 So do;

  • garlic
  • ginger
  • digestive enzymes

 

Candida Albicans overgrowth can be very dangerous because when Candida shifts from yeast to fungal form it produces root-like structures, also called rhizoids, that can penetrate intestinal walls and create holes in the walls of the intestines.

The penetration of the intestinal walls allows the yeast, bacteria, toxic waste and undigested food to enter the blood stream causing many horrible and often dangerous conditions such as: leaky gut syndrome, joint pain, severe rashes, memory loss, brain fog, acid reflux and severe inflammation as well as yeast in the sinuses and lungs.

 

The most devastating effects of Canditoxin and ethanol are however related to the brain. These two major toxins can negatively impact the brain and significantly interfere with our biochemical processes. It has even been show in studies involve rats that were injected with these dangerous toxins, that Canditoxin and Ethanol cause paralysis of the limbs and ultimately death. This is the harrowing effect of long-term, untreated Candida.

Perhaps the most important part of the healing process is to restore equilibrium back to the bacterial mix in your body. The most efficient way to do this is by introducing highly potent probiotics.

One of the most challenging situations or road-blocks in the Candida recovery experience is dealing with Candida Die-off symptoms. When following a strict Candida elimination diet, many people struggle through the effects of Candida Die-off and some even prematurely abandon their diet and their entire recovery plan. Candida Die-Off occurs when yeast cells are rapidly killed and metabolic by-products are released into the body. Candida yeast cells release 79 different toxins when they die including ethanol and acetaldehyde. These toxins are capable of causing damage to your organs, muscle tissue, cells and even impair your body’s functions. Candida Die-Off does not last very long and can clear up by a week or two. However the symptoms are sometimes so bad that individuals cannot cope. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to slow down this reaction or expel toxins faster.

  • Take a supplement like Molybdenum, Milk Thistle to help your liver expel the toxins.
  • Increase water intake to flush out the toxins faster
  • Slow down and rest as much as possible
  • Visit the sauna or take a hot bath to help your circulatory system

Ridding of Candida overgrowth primarily requires change in diet to a low carbohydrate diet. Sugar is what feeds yeast, so eliminating sugar in all of its simple, refined, forms is important. Have you gotten rid of your muffin or toast with jam in the morning? How about your morning cup of coffee or tea with its two scoops of sugar? (use Stevia instead) If you’re having a salad for lunch have you checked the ingredients of your dressing? It could have sugar in it. Have you taken juices and sodas out of your diet? Additionally, you should be staying away from alcohols and foods that you are sensitive towards. The negative impact food allergies has on your stomach can cause your immune system to weaken, thus dwindling your chances of fighting off your Candida infection. Even fruits and starchy vegetables like potatoes and squash are loaded with sugars and carbohydrates and should eaten by themselves and never mixed with other foods.

Try getting into the habit of reading the ingredient labels of all the foods you eat. ESPECIALLY, if it is packaged or has been processed. Sugar is prevalent in almost every item that is on a supermarket’s shelf and you could be unknowingly consuming copious amounts. Be wary of the foods you put into your shopping cart and make sure to buy wholesome, organic, pesticide, antibiotic and hormone free foods to reduce the chance of exposing your body to harmful chemicals.

Candida, the opportunistic yeast, is an organism that is found in all healthy humans. Its population in the body is kept at small and harmless numbers thanks to the hard work of the beneficial bacteria that share the same space within your digestive tract and gut. While Candida is usually easy to keep at bay, certain changes in the body can have a huge impact on the sensitive bacterial mix in your system and give the yeast an opportunity to thrive. Stress, diet,birth control pills, and antibiotics are just some factors that contribute to the obstruction of your sensitive balance and the loss of good bacteria. When this happens, Candida seizes the opportunity and begins to rapidly proliferate and cause infection.

The penetration of the intestinal walls allows the yeast, bacteria, toxic waste and undigested food to enter the blood stream causing many horrible and often dangerous conditions such as: leaky gut syndrome, joint pain, severe rashes, memory loss, brain fog, acid reflux and severe inflammation as well as yeast in the sinuses and lungs.

If left untreated, Candida becomes systemic and can virtually penetrate and manifest itself within every organ it settles in. That means if can be infect the lungs, sinuses, mouth, vagina, lymphatic system, esophagus, toenails, brain and the urinary tract. Most cases of Candida are left untreated because most people don’t even KNOW they have it. If you’re unsure of a Candida overgrowth, try using a safe and effective at-home test kit, for systemic infection, from Candia5.com. Knowing is the most important part of treating Candida.

Candida’s other debilitating effects lies within the many toxic substances that are produced by the yeast and that is poisonous to the human body. The two major toxins, Canditoxin and ethanol have been proven to cause a myriad of health problems such as: vaginal yeast infection, dry itchy skin, oral thrush, skin rashes, eczema, joint pain, stomach bloating, chronic diarrhea, arthritis, constipation, heartburn, blisters in the mouth, restless sleep, lack of energy, brain fog, chronic sinus problems, jumpy legs, headaches, blurred vision, mood swings, sugary food cravings, food allergies, jock and rectal itching, body chills, athlete’s foot and more.

The most devastating effects of Canditoxin and ethanol are however related to the brain. These two major toxins can negatively impact the brain and significantly interfere with our biochemical processes. It has even been show in studies involve rats that were injected with these dangerous toxins, that Canditoxin and Ethanol cause paralysis of the limbs and ultimately death. This is the harrowing effect of long-term, untreated Candida.

Candida overgrowth can be seriously debilitating, not just for your health, but mentally and physically as well. Systemic yeast infection and chronic Candida overgrowth have caused sufferers to struggle not only with their personal health but with relationships between family, friends, loved ones and even the ones at work. It shows that Candida not only takes over your body, but it also takes over your whole life.

Candida protocol helps Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Anxiety, Diverticulitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Fibroid Tumors, Thrush, Depression, Obesity, Post Natal Depression, Infertility, Diabetes, Mental Illness, the list goes on.

The results have been somewhat incredible. Even though there has been a healing crisis to work through, the improvement in overall wellbeing and the first signs of health have started to come back for all of those people, it has meant a lot more energy and stamina, natural weight loss, improved eye sight and hearing, warts disappearing, memory retention, less joint pain, reduced sinus pain, no headaches and migraines, Thrush totally clearing, fungal nails and athletes foot clearing, bowel motions returning to normal, hormones rebalancing, PMS and PMT disappearing.

The effectiveness of the Candida cell wall suppressor can be seen by the clear improvement of clients and confirmed from live and dry blood analysis.

Chitin synthesis inhibitor is an inert compound that works on Chitin only – no system in the human body uses chitin so it has zero effect on our vital systems.

The chitin synthesis inhibitor is absorbed into your fatty tissue and released slowly over several weeks.

This treatment is exceptionally unique because it crosses the blood-brain barrier, and can deal with Candida fungal infections inside the brain.

Chitin synthesis inhibitor is a compound that prevents the yeast from producing this layer of chitin to protect itself and without this protection your body can naturally attack and kill the fungus.

What makes this compound such a great solution to your Candida infection is that Lufenuron is a totally inert chemical that has no effect on ANY of the human systems.

As humans have no body processes that involve the creation of chitin, then taking a chitin inhibitor will have no effect on the human body – it will however make the yeast, vulnerable.

By testing for candida in the privacy of your own home, you will not only become aware of your yeast problem, you will often start to learn about cause and effect. The most important thing you can do is to establish why you have developed a candida yeast infection in the first place, and more importantly – how you can avoid future problems by addressing the actual ongoing  or what we term “exciting“ causes. Testing will allow you to know the severity of your problem and bring a new sense of awareness to your health problems.

Acid REFLUX, CHRONIC BLOATING, CONSTIPATION, CHRONIC ANEMIA, INFLAMMATORY DISEASE, FIBROMYALGIA, LUPUS (very severe infection), GWS, CHRONIC RASHES, SEBORRHEA, PSORIASIS, CANCERS  and a host of other diagnosed ailments are all linked to a systemic (in the blood stream) Fungal – Mycoplasm Infection.  Once this infection is in the blood stream, it can affect any organ giving people many different types of symptoms.  McCain was able to document this finding using her Live Field Microscopy equipment.  In every case above, chronic, systemic candida was found in the blood stream! 

Candida (fungal infection) can go systemic, into the blood stream and cause joint pain that is often confused with arthritis. Use of antibiotics and chemotherapy is the number one cause, but diet, environmental toxins can also play a role in the infection.  It can also affect the liver, causing rashes, the kidneys causing severe back pain and poor kidney function, etc.  When it’s in the blood stream it can infect anywhere.  That is why there are so many ailments tied into this condition.  Chronic fungal infection can also deplete the iron in the blood causing low energy and anemia.  Leg cramps, twitching legs and general body stiffness is also due to the inflammatory nature of the fungi as well as the fact that it depletes the calcium in the body too.  This leads to the cramping.  Chronic infection when left untreated gets progressively worse and is always present with Fibromyalgia, Cancer, Lupus, GWS, Gerds, and a host of other misdiagnosed ailments. Yeast infections can become a systemic yeast infection. This means that the fungus associated with this type of infection starts to spread to other areas of your body. Some of the general symptoms include fatigue, headaches, dizziness, low blood sugar, respiratory issues, lethargy, weakness, sensory disturbances, muscle pain and chemical sensitivities.

If the infection enters your bloodstream, it is called invasive candidiasis or candidemia.

Allopathic Systemic Therapy (pharmaceutical) drugs used can have very serious effect on liver and kidneys; Ketoconazole (Nizoral), Fluconazole (Diflucan),  Itraconazole (Sporanox), Itraconazole,  Fungizone (amphotericin B)
