Do you need to destroy some candida?
If you are struggling with fatigue, weight gain, migraines, brain fog and histamine intolerance chances are candida could be the root cause.
I know what it’s like to run on the hamster wheel of constantly guessing what’s wrong with you. Spending years going from doctor to doctor wishing someone would just give you a simple answer.
Turns out candida overgrowth can cause a mess of health problems and is easily overlooked at medical centers across the U.S. When the candida gets out of hand it starts to release mycotoxins which poison your body.
The good news is… realizing its candida is a huge success in itself because many people are still struggling to find the reason for their suffering.
Candida seems to be the hidden reason for so much sickness and disease. Once you realize what it is…the steps to killing it are pretty simple.
3 Simple Steps to Destroy Candida:
Cut the Sugar: The idea here is to starve the candida. Fungus and candida thrive and depend on a food source and sugar is their favorite. It doesn’t have to be white table sugar, they will eat all sugars and foods that turn into sugars. Think bread, white rice, and most white carbs. By reducing the sugar the candida will naturally decrease in numbers. Candida is found in your digestive tract and when you consume sugar from any source such as wine, carbs, cakes, bread, fruit juices etc… you are causing the candida to become overgrown. Simply eliminating these foods will reduce their numbers and start reducing your symptoms.
What can you eat? I’m glad you asked…any fresh meat, veggies or fruit you like. Keep things fresh, avoid leftovers since they can grow bacteria and fungus. Limiting grains is best in the beginning but you can enjoy some quinoa and a little oatmeal from time to time.
Stop the Antibiotics: There was a time in America where antibiotics were a breakthrough and saving lives right and left. Many people can thank antibiotics for killing off life-threatening infections. The problem arose when everyone started getting an antibiotic for the common colds and cases of flu. You see…antibiotics are made from a mold. They are mold. When you take an antibiotic you are taking fungus into your body. Not only do antibiotics feed fungus they also introduce new fungus into your gut. I’m not saying never to take another antibiotic, I am saying be choosy. Try different natural kinds of antibiotics, ones that are not made with a mold. Ask your doctor if they are really necessary. When you take an antibiotic you are also killing off all the good bacteria in your gut causing dysbiosis or a bacterially unbalanced gut.
Take Antifungals: This is a very simple way to start feeling better fast. Many people don’t realize that even sinus infections can be fungal. We all know that one person that keeps going back to the doc for a stronger antibiotic for a respiratory infection that lingers. What if you gave an antifungal a try? Yes cutting the sugar will starve the candida off but adding in some antifungals will really speed things along. Most of these I have listed also kill off bad bacteria, and viruses too. What are some common antifungals? Here are a few of my favs. (These are affiliate links)
Guys these are really cheap solutions to fungal overgrowth. These are brands I recommend but you can grab these at your local health food store as well.
By simply cutting out the candida’s food source and taking some antifungals, you will be shocked that in a week, you will be feeling better. Candida releases a toxic chemical when they die, so if you are killing them off quickly you may notice some die off symptoms the first few days. If this happens just slow down a tad.
Make sure you’re drinking lots of clean water to wash out those toxins released from the candida. Drinking lots of water helps move constipation along which also eliminates junk in your bowels. This is where we get our delicious clean water.
