you been experiencing unrelenting gas, bloating and rumbling in
your stomach? No matter what you eat does your stomach feel distended
and hard from bloating? Do you have rectal itching or constipation?
If you have answered yes to any of these symptoms than you may have
Candida otherwise known as C. Albicans.
you go to your medical doctor with the suspicion that you may have
C. Albicans, you may get a rude awakening. Many medical doctors
don't believe in Candida except Vaginal Candida. If you find this
resistance don't fret. After reading further you may not want to
choose the allopathic methods of treatment because at best they
are short term, toxic to your liver, and are only temporary in reducing
symptoms. Due to their toxicity they can only be given for short
duration's and follow-up with natural methods are needed.
HAVE YOU BEEN BATTLING CANDIDA WITH NO SUCCESS?
you have been battling C.Albicans for a long time you can use a
prescriptive anti fungal for a short period of time to obtain a
quick die-off. They are toxic to your liver so can only be given
for short duration. Unfortunately in most instances it is not enough.
So a follow-up with natural anti-fungal's is a must for success.
You must also follow an anti-yeast diet at the same time.
DIE-OFF SYMPTOMS PREVENTING YOU FROM OBTAINING RELIEF?
starting on any Candida program I highly recommend you do a liver
cleanse program because your liver is your bodies filter. When your
filter is congested from the onslaught of toxic residue produced
by the C.Albicans and the damage they do to the intestinal lining,
which leads to "Gut Permeability" or "'Leaky
Gut" which triggers an immune response and or food
sensitivities, the very food that that would normally be healthy
becomes toxic to your body adding to the toxic burden thus congesting
the liver further.
the liver is congested the toxins spill over into the blood stream
creating many unpleasant symptoms much like the flu, head aches,
detached state of mind, inability to concentrate, poor memory and
a myriad of other symptoms. When you begin a Candida program you
will get die-off which further congests the liver. These however,
can be eliminated with a little preparation before embarking on
a C. Albicans clearing program.
our Clinic we have been very successful in mitigating C. Albicans.
In order to be successful with the least amount of symptoms these
steps must be followed to completion.
HOW DOES ONE CONTRACT C. ALBICANS?
taking antibiotics or eating meats that contain antibiotics, drinking
chlorinated water, exposure to chemicals or pesticides cause a die-off
of the "pro" flora or friendly flora that normally resides
in the intestines and keep the C.Albicans in check. Antibiotics
are designed to "Kill off" all bacteria, including the
good ones. Then the C. Albicans can grow into an overgrowth situation
and lodge anywhere in the body such as the brain causing brain fog,
or the lungs causing bronchitis, or the joints causing joint pain
or the intestinal lining causing G. I distress..
of overgrowth mentioned above can lead to systemic Candida. Which
means they have penetrated the G. I tract creating "gut permeability".
Where by the gut lining is now permeable. They can now enter the
blood stream and become system wide. They can invade many other
parts of the body. Since the vaginal tract is close to the anus
of a female, this seems to be where Candida moves first. It is at
this stage that female have re-occurring vaginal infections or males
have jock itch. Men however, with C. Albicans contracted it after
oral sex with an infected female. Males then end up with spores
in their lungs!
M.D.'s recognize Vaginal C. Albicans but don't believe in systemic
Candida. I find this negligent! In my 20 years of clinical practice
I have come across numerous cases of people who in fact have Candida
but were told by their M.D.'s that there is no such thing and maybe
they should see a Psychiatrist!
people buy into this which is very sad. Stay true to your gut feeling
only you know your body. Listen to what it is trying to tell you.
Our bodies give us warning signs listen to them and seek help.
IF WE IGNORE OUR HEALTH LONG ENOUGH IT WILL GO AWAY!
If you have symptoms described
above you should call our office
and ask about the CSA
TEST . It is a Comprehensive Stool Analysis
which not only tests for yeast
but parasites as well. Secondly
you should ask about our Food
are these tests important?. In the "Report of Findings you
will discover which imbalances within the G. I. tract have lead the
Candida to grow. These factors can not only be found, but corrected.
This test is unique because it tests digestion first. If you are
not digesting your food properly and lack stomach acid (your first
line of defense against invading organisms) the undigested food
goes down into your large intestines where it ferments and provides
food for the bacteria, yeast and parasites to grow. Secondly, it
checks for the proper balance of "pro-flora" or good bacteria
that fight yeast, bacteria and parasites. These "friendly bacteria
have several functions: they help you digest food, create B-vitamins,
fight off bad bacteria and yeast, and build the immune system. The
test also check your long and short chain fatty acids which tell
us about the integrity of the intestinal lining and propensities
toward colon or rectal cancers. It check for the pH of the intestines
because "Acidophilus" is an "Acid Loving" bacteria
and in order for you to have a healthy colony of "Friendly
Bacteria" the pH of the intestines needs to be on the acid
side. Now if the lab were to find a bacteria or yeast they would
culture it against Prescriptive anti-fungal's or anti-bacterial's
and Natural anti-fungal's and bacterial's so you don't have to guess
what to take to kill the trouble makers.
tests are a must. I can't tell you
how many patients thought they had
Candida, when in fact all they had
was a bacterial infection and a digestive
deficiency or parasites, so the CSA
3P should be done instead.
Food Allergy test is also a must because of the damage done to the
intestinal lining by the Candida causes intestinal permeability
and ultimately food sensitivities or food allergies which then cause
an immune response. If you have C. Albicans you will need to follow
a food rotation diet to boost your immune system which will help
your body fight of the Candida and ultimately heal the gut wall
and greatly reduce the symptoms of gas and bloat and G. I. distress!
If not treated what might start out as minor food allergies can
lead to multiple chemical sensitivities - to the point where practically
everything effects the person and a person is left with very little
choices of food to consume. The final stages of Candida are mental
deterioration with depression, delusions and even violent or suicidal

followed for 3-6 months max. However, it is important to understand
that just following an anti-yeast diet is not enough.
CANDIDA TREATMENTS ON THE MARKET MIGHT FAIL
is why. Prescription anti-fungal's are not enough as mentioned before.
Nystatin the preferred treatment of choice is effective at reducing
localized vaginal or intestinal yeast over growth, but cannot travel
through the blood stream for systemic Candida. Nizoral is difficult
to absorb because most people lack proper stomach acid required
to absorb it. Because yeast infections can mimic excess stomach
acid, most people are reluctant to take the required stomach acid
to aid in absorption. Research evidence shows this drug may cause
serious liver damage or even fatal reactions. The PDR states that
these drugs can only be taken for short duration's due to their
toxicity. Due to this fact they can jot be taken long enough to
kill the Candida. This is why a follow up program of natural anti-fungal's
is critical for success.
MUST BE FOOLED FOR SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT
yeast can become resistant to any natural or medical therapy after
a month of continuous use. I have discovered that for the best results
an individual must rotate specific products every four days. The
trick is that each remedy has a different chemical action in destroying
the yeast. By rotating these substances the yeast is exposed to
different forms of attack and resistance to the remedy is avoided.
a anti-yeast rotation diet is fundamentally important to reduce
food sensitivities which trigger immune responses, which will weaken
your immune systems ability to fight off the yeast.
PHASES FOR SUCCESSFUL CANDIDA ELIMINATION - 4R PROGRAM
a.) Removal Phase-Detoxification of the liver is critical for
success. A 20 day period is required to clear the liver and make
the body ready to handle the die-off and reduce the side effects
of die-off. If this is not done first most people feel ill form
the toxins spilling over into the blood stream. Our liver cleanse
prevents these unwanted symptoms, supports your body, making it
ready for phase 2.
b.) Identifying and eliminating unwanted bacteria and parasites and
identifying the underlying causes of the Candida overgrowth are
mandatory. By utilizing the CDSA 3P test we can achieve this and
of course remove them. It takes 10 days to get the test results
back this must be done first.
c.) The unwanted bacteria, parasites, yeast and waste in the intestines
must be cleansed out. A through digestive and intestinal cleanse
is mandatory. By removing the food source (i.e. fermenting waste
in the intestines) and mucoid plaque that these organisms love
to hide under, we have a head start in the healing process. It
is here that a specific product is used that concentrates all
its power on intestinal elimination.
2 - Replacement
is at this phase that we must replace the "pro-flora"
or "friendly flora". This requires acidifying the intestines
and creating balance in the G. I. tract so that the "friendly
flora can grow. Acidophilus is an acid loving bacteria, thus the
name Acidophilus. If your pH is to alkaline in the intestine than
the Acidophilus will not grow! By now we will have back the report
of findings on the CDSA 3P test. We will know where your imbalances
are and take corrective measures.
3 - Repair
to the intestine (Leaky Gut) can be repaired at this time. This
requires special formulations that are both anti inflammatory and
promote a healthy mucosal barrier on the intestinal lining. By healing
the gut wall we prevent systemic Candida and multiple food sensitivities.
You will now be able to eat a wider variety of foods without reacting
to them. Your food will no longer trigger an immune response and
you will have improved absorption.
4 - Re-inoculate

immune system can be strengthened and you can now absorb the proper
nutrients needed to repair your body. We can determine where your
body is deficient or imbalanced and correct these imbalances. This
is a vital phase that is often overlooked. Because of the restricted
diet and malabsorption your body has been depleted. To obtain radiant
health this phase must be carried out.
I can assure you if each phase is carried out in the proper order
to full completion, you will know what it is to have a level of
radiant, abundant health.
