Candida(Yeast Infection)

Candida Albicans is a natural strain of fungus that lives in our bowels, but when allowed to grow unchecked can cause havoc on our immune system and show up as a myriad of symptoms such as allergies, rashes, pain, stomach upset, inflammation, reactions to smells, headaches, etc.  We see it in the form of fungus infection, epidermal irritations, and thrush; there are oral forms, vaginal forms, blood forms, and intestinal forms.

The best way to treat an overgrowth of Candida is to cleanse with an essential oils blend, clean up the diet, get plenty of sunshine and fresh air, and exercise, and repopulate the lower intestine with good bacteria by using a probiotic.  Refrain from consuming anything with sugar, mold or fungus, as Candida Albicans is a yeast and will feed off of these foods.

Initially, as you proceed with the cleanse it will create a “die off” effect and you will feel worse for a small period of time, while the Candida is expelled. Most suggest taking the cleansing blend for two weeks on and then off for one week as you take a probiotic. Then repeat the cycle, as needed, until Candida symptoms are gone.  Following this, for long term maintenance, continue with a good diet, exercise, and a monthly cleanse (2 weeks of the cleansing blend and 1 week of probiotics).

Avoid using antibiotics, birth control, and foods that are high in sugar or yeast as much as possible.

Often people complain of feeling badly or experience rash or other “die off” symptoms.  It is not unusual to experience die off symptoms as your body purges the Candida. Consider a diet of raw foods during your cleanse, and drink LOTS of Lemon water.
