Candida is an over-infestation of yeast in the body that can invade the brain and tissues. It thrives on the foods we consume, making the body crave these foods until they are eaten. Many medications, such as steroid drugs, birth control pills, and antibiotics may increase the likelihood of a Candida yeast imbalance.
Symptoms of Candida include frequent yeast, bladder or skin infections, chronic fungus such as athletes foot or thrush, allergic reaction or increased sensitivities to foods or chemicals, bowel disorders, muscle pain or weakness and fatigue.
Conventional treatments usually includes anti-fungal drugs and antibiotics. However, these treatments may increase the severity of the problem in the long term. Often, when finishing a course of antibiotics or steroids, a person experiences a yeast infection. Drugs that specifically address fungus or Candida destroy some of the yeast, but the yeast that is not destroyed begins to colonize and become increasingly drug-resistant. In a stronger state, yeasts produce toxins that attack the body’s defense system and destroy the friendly bacteria in the body that is designed to be a defense mechanism against stronger fungus. Although using drugs to resolve Candida symptoms, ‘stuffs’ the immediate discomfort it causes the yeast to return with increased strength and over time the yeast becomes a problem that affects every facet of life and health.
Through an effective balance of dietary changes, nutritional support, and the increase of friendly bacteria, yeasts may be brought under control within 30-60 days. In this short period of time, an individual will reach a new level of vitality and health.
Detoxification to eliminate accumulated toxins and wastes, restore the peristaltic action of the colon and strengthen vital organs.
- A yeast-free diet that will reduce Candida to a non-threatening level. Although each individual has yeast in their bodies, natural defense systems generally keep the cells functioning properly. However, poor nutrition, a sluggish or impaired immune system, or an insufficient number of friendly bacteria levels weakens the body’s ability to fight off yeast. When this occurs, yeast colonies grow rapidly and Candida may result. Candida grows and lives on what you eat and it is absolutely critical to eliminate this food source and strengthen the immune system to rid the body of this debilitating condition. The Candida program is a very strict dietary regimen that cannot be compromised.
- Nutritional supplementation to ensure immune system strength and a healthy functioning body. Formulations that are specific to this program are a multivitamin/ multi-mineral, essential fatty acids, and friendly bacteria to restrict the growth of yeast and infection while assisting in digestion.
