Candida Cleanse

“The pathogen is of little consequence if one’s internal environment is in order.”
–  Louis Pasteur 1822-1895

The human body is normally host to a wide variety of bacteria which protect the bowel from damage, stimulate the immune response and aid with digestion and assimilation of nutrients. The bowel acts much like an ecosystem where proper balance of organisms is important to staying healthy. Candida albicans is a yeast which under normal balanced conditions sparsely populates the intestinal tract. In women, yeast also lives in the vaginal tract.

If the healthy, balanced environment of good and bad bacteria is altered, the Candida yeast grows out of control and can cause many health problems. Normal bowel bacteria protect the lining and secrete factors that act as food for cells of your intestine. Pathogenic bacteria such as Candida secrete factors that damage the cell lining causing inflammation and a leakage of material into the blood. This results in systemic (or whole body) Candida infections, a condition known as Candidiasis.

The single largest cause for Candida overgrowth is from antibiotics because they kill both good bacteria and the bad. Although this may deal with the illness you have, it actually makes you more susceptible to future illness since it alters your bowel ecosystem and contributes to Candida overgrowth. Other causes can be from taking birth control pills, estrogen replacement therapy, cortisone and other drugs and chemotherapy. Poor diet, food allergies, pregnancy, trauma or chronic stress also contribute to an overgrowth of Candida yeast.

The average North American consumes 60,000 – 100,000 pounds of food over a lifetime – most of which is over processed, low in fiber, high in refined carbohydrates with a large amount of red meat, diary, sugar and wheat. This diet promotes sluggishness and allows Candida to grow out of control.

A majority of the medical community still chooses not to recognize, diagnose or treat candidiasis. This is partly due to the wide variety of symptoms that Candida can produce. The symptoms can be varied and diverse and affect many areas of the body and much of medical science is trained to focus on the symptom rather than the environment in the body that allowed the symptom to appear in the first place. Candidiasis can affect many systems at the same time such as the digestive system, thyroid, adrenal, pancreas, respiratory system, urinary tract, nervous system, reproductive system, eyes and skin.

The Candida cleanse focuses on the following 4 R Program:

  1. Remove the parasites, yeast, fungus or pathogenic bacteria from the bowel
  2. Replace the digestive factors to support optimal absorption of nutrition
  3. Reinoculate with specific strains to restore digestive health
  4. Repair the digestive lining to prevent reoccurrence of future overgrowth

It is important to treat the environment inside the body that allows the pathogen to exist in the first place and not the pathogen itself.

The Program is Ideal for:

  • patients who have been treated for a wide variety of problems with no long term results
  • digestive problems (constipation / gas / bloating)
  • diverticulosis or diverticulitis
  • chronic muscle or joint pain of unknown origin
  • chronic fatigue of unknown origin
  • chronic infections that take weeks to disappear only to reappear weeks or months later
  • hormonal problems

The process of clearing Candida is quite simple, however, there are many organ systems in the body and it is best to get assessed to see which system needs to be cleansed first and which type of supplements are best for you. > Getting Started
