Kombucha yeasts fight Candida,

                                         they do not encourage it

                                                by Günther W. Frank

 

 

 

 

     Worry about Candida or other yeast infections? Not so! Kombucha is a different kind of Yeast-Fungi. There are pathogen

     (harmful) and apathogen (harmless) yeasts. Kombucha is of the harmless kind.

 

     Since kombucha is called a "mushroom" by many people, and a "fungus" by others, and since it is a yeast as well as a

     bacterial ferment, there are those who will automatically warn all candida albicans victims - those with chronic candiasis or

     any other kind of yeast infections - to stay away from Kombucha.

 

     However, this is not right. The Schizosacharomycodes, that is in the Kombucha culture, is a yeast that is not in the family of

     candida, so it can be actually antagonistic to the troublesome yeast that infects so many people.

 

     Kombucha is likely to be very beneficial for the following reason. Candida albicans is a yeast which competes with your

     bowel microflora and produces nothing in the way of benefit to the host organism. It occupies the body's defenses which

     have to be mobilized to oppose it. While this is going on your immune system can not effectively deal with other infections.

     Kombucha, on the other hand, is a community of microorganisms that do have a beneficial effect on the host, namely by

     producing glucuronic acid. The yeasts in Kombucha compete with the candida yeasts and gradually replace them. They

     reproduce vegitatively or by fission rather than by producing spores. This means that instead of having an enemy inside you,

     you have a friend.

 

     In addition you will also have some of the organisms which will colonize your gut somewhat and continue their good work.

     Provided that your batch is not contaminated with mold, there is nothing in Kombucha that can harm you. It is true that

     certain people may have a sensitivity to it, but that can be alleviated by reducing the dose. So that is about it. Nothing

     mystical! Nothing magical! and nothing harmful.

 

     Prof. Rieth, Hamburg, Germans leading expert in Mycology confirmed me: There is absolutely no risk in drinking Kombucha

     as regards of yeast infections since the Kombucha yeast are apathogen. You can rely on his judgment that is based on careful

     research work. There is a large amount of scientific papers which proof, that there is no danger and no concern against the

     preparing of your own Kombucha beverage. Prof. Rieth told me, there is very little knowledge of mycology (fungal diseases)

     even at doctors and many wrong allegations are made.

 

     The German "Bundesgesundheitsamt" (the top Public Health Office in Germany like the FDA in the USA) says:

     "Kombucha is not injurious to health". I hope that this is of value to some people who are worried by the fear and

     anxiety spread about KT by the tabloid media in particular.

Kombucha - the Facts!

 

                                                                                             

 

    Some of the other names for Kombucha: Cajnogo griba, Cajnyj kvas, Combou Chai, Elixir de longue vie, Japanese sponge,

   Jponskij grib, K'un- Pu-ch'a, Kargasok Pilz, Manchurian Tea Elixir, Olinka, Symbiont Schizosaccharomyces Pombe, Tea Beer,

                                                      Teewein, Yapnge

 

The origin of the Kombucha culture is mysterious! No-one knows where it comes from and it can't be found in the wild anymore. The

use of this living organism is thought to have first been started in Manchuria, China, but others consider it was in Eastern Russia or

Japan. Wherever it began it was a very long time ago.

 

What it is. Often Kombucha is referred to as a fungus which is not strictly true. It is more like a jelly fish, a combination of yeasts and

bacteria, rather like a yoghurt culture, an algae or sponge, a sort of symbiosis like Irish Moss (a lichen), which, strangely, lives off a

dilute solution of sugar and water.

 

Its name.  So the name "kombu" (from the sea) and "cha" (tea) doesn't quite tie up! Nor is it a tea, for it neither tastes like tea nor do

you drink it hot! Hence some of the names speak of it as a "beer" or "wine" since the drink it makes tastes somewhat like a sparkling

beverage, something like cider. The reason it was called a tea is that tea is usually mixed with the sugar solution to make the brew. The

tea can be black or green, mixed with herbal or fruit teas. These are more than just for flavour, they do of course contribute to the

health-giving benefits of  the sponge which are becoming legendary.

 

Its uses.  It is now being recommended for anyone with cancer. But the drink is not just for those with illnesses. Brewed correctly, it is

a delicious drink. It is of course the national drink of Manchuria and Mongolia and certain countries of the former Soviet Union, just as

tea is England's national brew. Kombucha is a natural tonic and is highly regarded by health professionals all over the world to be an

excellent, safe, promotional health drink (or preventative remedy against all illnesses).

 

How it is made. Certain authors speak about Kombucha as "fermenting" in the sweetened water. This is not really accurate. Kombucha

is a living organism and the sweet water is its food, and the "brew" is the result of the sponge's digestive process, just as pollen and

herbal medicinal qualities are the result of the plant's metabolic system and honey is the result of the bee's digestive processes.

 

What is in it? Just as wine and beer are dependent on micro-organisms for their life and benefit so also all living things require these

micro-organisms for health. It is when these get out of balance that such conditions as thrush and candida, etc, occur. Could all health

problems be related to an imbalance of these micro-bacteria and organisms? There are at least five active natural bacteria in Kombucha:

Acetobacter xylinum, A. xylinoides, A. aceti, A. pasteurianum, Gluconobacter bluconicum, and many yeasts, for instance

Schizosaccharomyces pombe, S ludwigii, Pichia fermentans. Since the yeasts increase by cross division (in contrast with conventional

yeasts, which is the reason why people with candida problems can benefit from Kombucha. It completely transforms sugar into lactic

acid and other health components. Lactic acid itself is detoxifying. The Kombucha culture produces gluconic and glucuronic acids,

carbonic acid and acetic acid (anti-streptococci, anti-diplococci, etc), plus a range of B vitamins (1,2,3,6,12) folic acid and many

enzymes, usinic acid (antibacterial and antiviral). The life span of the culture is said to be unlimited, endless, ageless. Kombucha

beverage is organic and living.

 

The Godshaer Kombucha Herbal Tea is made from pure spring water, green tea, herbs and fruit teas. Its taste is very pleasant. The

green tea potentises Kombucha's own anti-cancer effect. Green tea contains the chemical epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which inhibits

the growth of carcinogens and lowers blood cholesterol; the Chinese say it gives longevity and is protective of the memory. Kombucha is

appropriate for all people, for health promotion and as disease preventative; a real, natural, holistic tonic of ancient origin and wide

traditional use.

KOMBUCHA

Kombucha or Manchurian Mushroom, what is it anyway? Some of you by now have probably heard of this strange fungus that people are growing "babies" of and

drinking the fermented beverage as a health tonic. The beverage tastes like a fermented cider which can either taste slightly sweet, or slightly vinegary depending on

the batch.

 

It is called Manchurian Mushroom by some because people in the east have been drinking the fermented beverage for generations. It is reported to go back as far

as 221 BC to ancient China and was referred to as the Remedy for Immortality." It spread through the east from Korea, China and India through Russia and into

Eastern Europe. In rural hamlets of Siberia or the Ukraine, Tibet or Spain there are pockets of people who live to be well over one hundred, they never get cancer,

and they have Kombucha in their back closet and drink it daily.

 

It is reported to have multiple health benefits, some of these include: eliminates candida, helps bronchitis, asthma, coughs, allergies, insomnia, colitis & nervous

stomachs, digestion, eases menopause discomfort and hot-flashes, and helps to heal diseases. Some people are convinced it is beneficial for people living with

HIV/AIDS.

 

Norman Baker of Laurel Farms in Los Angeles believes Kombucha tea may help people living with HIV/AIDS. He has written "The tea... contains something called

Usnic acid which can partly inactivate viruses." In New York, people with AIDS began using Kombucha and what has been reported so far is an increase of

energy. Charles Steinberg, an M.D. who works with primarily HIV-positive and AIDS patients has about a dozen of his patients using it on their own. He says

"some credit it with making them feel stronger, more alert, and more energetic."

 

Dr. Jeffrey Gates, who studies the medicinal properties of food at Cornell University, has analyzed Kombucha tea and said that the hope it offered for better health

should be tempered. He said, "the tea appears to work primarily in the gastrointestinal track and because it is high in certain acids, it may make it easier for the body

to absorb vitamin C and certain B complexes."

 

Warnings: The Food and Drug Administration are looking into it now but they have had no reports of adverse reactions. What Kombucha is not is a mushroom, it

is "several yeasts living symbiotically with several bacteria that produce a powerful antibiotic," according to research done 15 years ago by Paul Stamets, a

mycologist (researcher of mushrooms) in Olympic, WA. Stamets warns about the fact that it is an antibiotic. Perhaps it is an antibiotic, but it is a natural one as

opposed to a synthetic pill form and the dosage is low compared to what would be in a typical antibiotic capsule.

 

Another warning is the fact eastern bodies and western bodies are different and eastern bodies have had generations to adapt to it, while western bodies have not.

Hanna Kroeger, a healer I studied with, has stated that in the western body Kombucha can take hold and actually begin to grow in our intestines after 3 weeks.

Something to think about, if you have handled one of the Kombucha babies you will notice it is quite strong, this growing in the intestines is a scary thought. Hanna's

suggestion was to eat asparagus which inhibits the growth of fungus, and she has a remedy if it gets worse and cannot be self treated. The prescribed dosage is 4 oz

per day in the morning on an empty stomach. It might be advantageous to drink less while monitoring for intestinal upset.

 

Another warning in the literature is that it could become contaminated and that could be dangerous. So in the preparation and handling of the Kombucha care must

be taken, it is a process requiring patience and nurturing.

 

It is not recommended pregnant or lactating women drink Kombucha tea. This is probably because of the low alcohol content (0.5 %) from the fermentation

process.

 

The really great thing about this Kombucha beverage is it can be used totally safely externally. So if you have any type of skin rash, itch, yeast or unknown origin

problems, try the liquid in your bath water or use it in the shower like you would use a skin freshener. There have been reports of skin problems clearing from

topical use.

 

A handout on the recipe guidelines is available through the Babes office. It is a process that takes ambition and patience to start.

Kombucha Tea

 

 

 

          Kombucha Tea is a fermented drink made from a combination of yeast and bacteria that has for centuries been

          used to detoxify the body and enhance the immune system.

 

          Much of the apparent benefits from Kombucha is in the LIVE yeast's and bacteria that are part of the symbiotic

          mix. These are friendly microbes that attack and keep at bay the toxic microbes and help the body defend against

          such things as Candida and Thrush yeast infections and deadly parasites like pancreatic fluke. But there are many

          other reputed benefits according to such knowledgeable people such as the Yogi Tea company, in the dried or

          "dead' kombucha culture.

 

          During the fermentation process the yeast and bacteria consume the sugar and tea and leave behind a cellulose

          blob that generally covers the top of the container, and a palatable "tea" who one drinks to receive the benefits.

 

          As the fermentation process for Kombucha is quite complex, passing through the alcohol to vinegar fermentation

          of the yeasts, it is very open to contamination by native yeasts in the vicinity, however the very low pH or acidity

          makes it almost impossible for most contaminates to survive.

 

               During the first half of the ferment 7 - 9 days the yeasts are predominant providing B-Vitamins

               including B-12 and leaving slight alcoholic content. These yeasts combat bad yeasts including Candida.

               During the second half 10 - 14 days bacteria and vinegar become predominant. These bacteria combat

               bad bacteria in the intestinal tract and help to install healthful bacteria flora to the gastro- intestinal tract.

               The solid pancake is mostly cellulose, and divides to provide "babies".

               The mother cellulose pancake may be separated from the new baby and disposed of, or used to

               provide a second culture. Do not flush the cellulose as it may grow and plug the toilet.

 

          Sanitary precautions should be taken, and the culture and utensils cleaned between brewings. I recommend

          that care be taken to set up a sterile environment for the brewing process.

 

          The use of Kombucha tea for Cancer cures as well as an all round tonic goes back centuries in folklore from

          around the world. There is much written about this so called "Magic elixir".

 

          There is lots of information about kombucha on the web but I have found Jim's site hotlinked at the bottom of

          this page to be an easy link to many important sources.

 

          equipment:

          stone or glass Container I gallon or larger, opaque, for fermenting.

 

          Boiling kettle or pot other than metal, stainless steel, however, will work. Clean cotton cloth large enough to

          cover the container and be secured by the elastic band.

          To keep the brewing container warm you may wish to rig up an Incubation box, [picnic cooler or tub big

          enough to hold the brewing container along with a 25 - 40 watt lamp, with enough room for air circulation].

 

               Basic recipe:

 

               3 1/2 liters of water.

               1 cup refined white sugar.

               4 tea bags Green tea and 2 bags black tea

               1/2 liter starter tea [first time out if you don't have starter you can use 1/2 cup vinegar to lower the pH.

               [Boil the Vinegar first however to make sure all vinegar yeasts are destroyed].

 

          [starter is the liquid of the kombucha, the solid is referred to as the culture]

          Boil the water, dissolve the sugar, add the tea and steep until cooled to room temperature.

 

          The cooling could take hours.

 

          Pour mixture into brewing container, add starter and culture.

 

          Place container into incubator, cover with cloth, secured by elastic. Leave lid to tub 25% open for air exchange.

          Let sit for one week more or less to taste. That's it!

Fight yeast infections with this candida diet

 

 

   Yeast infections are becoming surprisingly common. In fact, "candida albicans" is becoming quite the

   buzzword. Your doctor will almost certainly prescribe medication, but you can help yourself a lot through

   your diet.

 

   All yeasts thrive on sugar, warmth and moisture. You can see it when you prepare yeast for baking

   bread. You add yeast to some warm sugar water and you can almost watch that yeast grow before your

   very eyes.

 

   In your body, yeast has enough warmth and moisture. When the natural balances in your body are upset

   by any mechanism whatsoever, all the yeast needs is enough sugar to grow and grow and keep growing.

 

   Now, you don't just find sugar in cakes, candies and sodas, although those are the first things you'll

   want to cut out. Even unsweetened starches like potatoes, pasta, and breads eventually turn into a

   kind of sugar your body can use for energy. Some, like puffed rice and rice cakes, corn, millet, wheat -

   in fact most grains - convert into sugar very quickly. You'll want to avoid most grain-based foods for

   that reason. Barley is your one exception: it turns to sugar very slowly.

 

   Then there are foods that are generally considered healthy, that are also high in sugar. Fruit. Honey.

   Milk. Muesli. Starchy vegetables like potato, carrots and parsnips.

 

   Other foods to avoid are those containing yeast as well as foods that are relatives of the yeast family.

   You already have enough causing havoc in your body, why add more? The obvious avoid is mushrooms.

   Less obvious are foods like bread, most cheeses and alcohol, which are all made with yeast. Peanuts

   and melons are associated with yeast, so avoid those too.

 

   Let's do a checklist. No grains, cheese, alcohol, mushrooms, peanuts, melons, fruit, milk, starchy

   vegetables, breakfast cereals, rice cakes ... what's left?

 

   Well, maybe it's time to start enjoying more chicken, fish and even red meat. Maybe an egg or two a

   week.

 

   Most vegetables that can be eaten raw are fine, whether raw or cooked. These include cabbage, kale,

   broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, lettuce, collard greens, leeks, onions, zucchini, cucumber, beans and

   peas.

 

   Dried beans, peas and lentils, while quite starchy, are high in fiber. They will help remove dead yeast

   cells from your intestinal tract so they aren't re-absorbed by your body. Eat these in moderation. If you

   buy ready-cooked canned versions, read the labels carefully to make sure they contain no added sugar.

 

   Garlic is a good, natural anti-fungal, so if you're a garlic lover, you can indulge as much as you want.

   Also look for plain yogurt made with live cultures, as those help keep yeast in check as well.

 

   Your typical meal will therefore be grilled fish or chicken, with a large vegetable salad and possible a

   garlic yogurt dressing. I think that sounds great! You'll probably eat better than you do normally, and

   lose a little weight into the bargain.

 

   Most importantly though, you'll be feeding your body and not the yeast, which will help you recover all

   that much sooner.

they improve this FAQ. I don't intend to add banners to the site or any graphics because it will make the web page ugly in my humble opinion.

 

 

 

 

2. WHAT IS CANDIDA ALBICANS?

 

## Candida  FAQ Index ##

 

2.1  What is Candida albicans?

 

Candida albicans, is an opportunistic yeast that normally inhabits the mouth, throat, intestines and genitourinary tract of most humans and is usually considered to

be a normal part of the bowel flora (the organisms that coexist with us in our lower digestive tract). Its job is to recognize and destroy harmful bacteria. Without

Candida albicans in our intestines we would be defenseless against many pathogen bacteria. In a healthy person, Candida albicans is numbered in millions. It is

controlled by a properly functioning immune system and "friendly" bacteria. However, if the number of friendly bacteria is decreased (antibiotics), the immune

systems is weakened or other conditions for yeast proliferation occur (diet high in sugar, improper pH in the digestive system) Candida albicans will shift from

yeast to mycelial fungal form and start to invade the body.  In the yeast state Candida is a non-invasive, sugar-fermenting organism, while in fungal state it is invasive

and can produce rhizoids, very long root-like structures. Rhizoids can penetrate mucosa or intestinal walls, leaving microscopic holes and allowing toxins, undigested

food particles and bacteria and yeast to enter the bloodstream. These condition is known as Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS) and that is an explanation for food and

environmental allergies.

2.3  What causes Candida overgrowth?

 

To cure Candida albicans it is essential to find what caused Candida overgrowth. If the cause is not found and treated it is possible that treatment will not be

effective and/or that Candida will relapse.

 

 Here are the most common causes of Candida albicans overgrowth:

 

     ANTIBIOTICS reduce the number of "friendly bacteria" in the intestinal tract which normally keeps the Candida albicans under control. 

     TOXIC METALS AND CHEMICALS Toxic metals, such as mercury (found in dental amalgams and some fish) and chemicals, such as aspartame, MSG

     and others can kill friendly intestinal flora, alter immune response and allow yeast to proliferate.

     IMMUNE DEFICIENCY  Any condition that results in a weakened immune system can cause Candida proliferation. Common causes of immune

     deficiency are AIDS and cancer.

     GENETIC DISORDERS like celiac disease or hemochromatosis can cause Candida overgrowth.

     HORMONAL IMBALANCE Hormonal balance is necessary for support of friendly flora in the gut.

          PREGNANCY can cause a significant hormonal imbalance.

          BIRTH CONTROL PILLS usually contain the estrogen hormone.

          THYROID DISEASE like hypothyroid also affects hormonal balance.

     STEROID HORMONES, IMMUNOSUPPRESSANT AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS, ULCER MEDICATIONS OR ACID

     BLOCKERS USED FOR PROLONGED PERIOD

     EXCESSIVE STRESS

     INTESTINAL PARASITES AND WORMS Destroy friendly bacteria in the gut making yeast overgrowth possible

     IMPROPER DIET. Diet high in carbohydrate and sugar, yeast and yeast products can lead to Candida overgrowth. Overeating causes indigestion of food

     and allows fermentation.

     CHRONIC CONSTIPATION 

     CHRONIC DIARRHEA. The friendly  Bifidobacterium bifidum can be thrown out of the colon and Candida may proliferate.

     ENVIRONMENTAL MOLDS OR CHEMICALS

     ALCOHOL Kills friendly bacteria, increases toxic overload of liver and in turn allows Candida to grow.

     TAP WATER Common tap water contains chlorine, that has the ability kill bad bacteria but effects also the good bacteria in the gut allowing Candida to

     proliferate.

 

2.4  Is Candida overgrowth contagious?

 

Fungi from genus Candida cannot be airborne. Therefore, Candida cannot be transmitted by air. Sexual intercourse, deep kissing, oral sex can transmit Candida

either to/from genital parts or mouth from one person to another. If other person is healthy, his immune system will destroy Candida cells and prevent infection.

However, if immune system is compromised or he/she eat lots of sugar and carbohydrates Candida can proliferate.

 

2.5 Can one die from Candida overgrowth?

 

Once the Candida migrate past the GI tract they can set up in other major organs like the lungs, kidney and brain. You can die from it if left untreated, and especially

if it hits the brain. Once you get it in the brain, it is extremely hard to recover and very lethal. Persons with severely  compromised immune system die from blood

poisoning known as Candida Septicemia. It all depends on your immune system. If your system is severely compromised (like in patients with AIDS or cancer)

treatment is a must, and if you are young you can fool a round. In short, Candida is by no means naive disease and has to be treated. If left untreated, it can cause

other diseases that may be lethal.    

 

2.6 Which toxins do Candida release ?

 

Candida releases poisons in blood causing all kinds of symptoms. There are about 80 of known toxic substances, some of which are:

 

     ethanol : Produced when yeast has lots of food. Excess ethanol can cause symptoms of alcohol intoxication

     acetaldehyde : can damage organs, disrupt fatty acid oxidation and production of collagen, cause abnormal behavior, memory loss, distorted thinking, mood

     swings, depression, impaired intellectual functioning and emotional disturbances.

     formaldehyde :

 

2.7 Where can I find doctor knowledgeable about Candida ?

 

Many doctors are ignorant and/or unwilling to treat Candida. Some organizations are listed to help you find professional help:

 

USA

 

     The American College for Advancement in medicine at http://www.acam.org/ lists doctors knowledgeable in treating Candida. You can search for doctors in

     your area who have a code YS (Yeast Syndrome), meaning they are specialized in treating Candida.

     Great Smokies Diagnostic Laboratory at 1-800-522-4762 (http://www.gsdl.com/) can provide you with a list of doctors in your area who specialize in

     treating Candida albicans.

     At http://www.practitioner.org/ there is a list of doctors who specialize in treating Candida.

     The International Health Foundation at http://www.candida-yeast.com  has an extensive list of doctors who treat Candida overgrowth. The president of this

     organization is the author of "The Yeast Connection", Dr. William Crook. He may be contacted for a referral at:

2.8 What is die-off (Herxheimer reaction)?

 

When you kill off a bunch of Candida at once, all of the toxins that are currently stored in them are released into your system all at once. As there are usually

significant amount of toxins stored in Candida cells, these toxins when released will causes a temporary increase in yeast symptoms (often including new symptoms

as new toxins are released), followed by a considerable lessening of symptoms. The technical name for this experience is a Herxheimer reaction ; it is more

commonly referred to as "die-off" or "flare-up". This experience is similar to experience when Candida albicans is growing,  such as when you have eaten a

"forbidden" food. In both cases, Candida releases its toxins and it is often hard to differentiate whether you are killing it or feeding it. In order to tell the difference

between die-off symptoms, reaction food and general yeast symptoms it is wise to keep a journal of what you eat and what anti-fungals you take, so when you get a

change, you know which it's likely to be. As die-off is caused from anti-fungals it will usually last from few days to 2 weeks depending of what anti-fungal you use.

As you kill almost all  susceptible strains of Candida die-off effect will subside. Even if you don't get die-off it does not mean that Candida is eradicated from the

body. It is possible that amount of Candida killed (toxins released) is to small to produce massive die-off. Then, you should either continue the same anti-fungal for

few weeks to finish it off or even better, change to new anti-fungal. Also, the dosing of anti-fungals and their effectiveness can be established by observing die-off

effect. The die-off effect of anti-fungal should not be intolerable,  but you should feel die-off. If die-off effect is too strong, the dose of anti-fungals should be

decreased. To minimize the effect of die-off :

 

          you can reduce antifungal dosage (or even discontinue it)

          drink lots of water to flush away the dead yeast toxins.

          use hydrotherapies (like enemas) to flush away dead yeast toxins

          take Bentonite Clay

 

     

 

2.9 What is systemic Candida overgrowth?   

 

Systemic Candida overgrowth occurs when Candida breaks the intestinal lining (see LGS) and enters the bloodstream. From there, it can travel to various parts of

your body, call it a residence and multiply. The symptoms of systemic Candida overgrowth are : muscle aches, sore/stiff joints, fatigue, problems with particular

organs, recurrent urinary tract infections, serious illnesses (Asthma, ADHD,  Diabetes, MS, Arthritis, CFS, Fibromyalgia).

 

If you're experiencing systemic symptoms, then you need some systemic anti-fungals (anti-fungals that enter your bloodstream in sufficient quantity to reach your

joints and organs).

 

The most mainstream doctors recognize systemic Candida overgrowth, but believe that only hardly immune-compromised  persons (AIDS, cancer, organ transplant

patients) can be affected. 

 

2.10 What are common misconception related to Candida overgrowth?

 

     that only women can have Candida overgrowth. It is more common with woman, but man get it too.

 

 

 

2.11 What strains of Candida are most common?

 

There is over 150 species, common one include : 

 

     Candida albicans

     Candida dubliniensis

3. HOW TO DIAGNOSE CANDIDA OVERGROWTH?

 

## Candida  FAQ Index ##

 

3.1  What are the symptoms of Candida overgrowth?

3.2  What tests are available for Candida overgrowth?

 

Click here to read why this question is not answered.

 

3.3 How to diagnose Candida overgrowth?

 

To diagnose Candida, following methods can be used :

 

     a history of factors (likely to cause Candida overgrowth)

     presence of symptoms (questionnaire can be used)

     laboratory tests for Candida False negative results are common.1

     a successful trial of antifungal and diet therapy  If symptoms are increased (due to die-off) and then subside, it is likely that Candida is causing

     symptoms.

 

However, diagnosing Candida is very difficult, because :

 

     Candida is present in healthy humans only in smaller numbers and not in invasive form. Therefore, the laboratory test have to establish not if there is Candida

     or not, but how big is the yeast population

     there are over 150 strains of Candida and test tend to recognize only few strains

     most of Candida cells are attached to the mucosa wall, and these cells will not show in stool test

     many of the yeast cells can die while the specimen is transported and/or waits for analysis

 

3.4 How to diagnose parasites?

 

Lots of parasites don't show up on tests, because most labs only test for limited number of  strains (like 50) and there are over 1000 that can affect humans. One of

test to detect parasites is CDSA. If you suspect parasites, you will simply have to confirm by taking anti-parasite cleanse. It is common for Candida patients to have

also parasites. Parasites should be suspected, if Candida overgrowth is relapsed.

4. TREATMENT OF CANDIDA ALBICANS.

 

||||| Candida albicans FAQ Index |||||

 

4.1 What steps are recommended for treating Candida overgrowth?

 

     Candida Control Diet

     Avoid use of antibiotics and steroids  unless absolutely necessary. Antibiotics kill friendly bacteria and promote yeast growth !!!

     Determine the cause of Candida overgrowth and treat it if still present. If you do not find and treat the cause you might have hard time getting rid of

     Candida or have a relapse. 

     Digestive aids :  Replace any deficient digestive secretions such as hydrochloric acid (HCl) and pancreatic enzymes. These will help you to absorb your

     nutrients and supplements and will leave less behind for Candida to eat.

     Strengthen the immune system It is highly likely that Candida has weakened your immune system Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Zinc are recommended.

     Others supplements for  immune system can be used too.

     Nutritional supplements. Because Candida interferes with absorption of vitamins and minerals and Candida Control Diet limits food one can eat  it is

     common to for Candida patients to have vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Therefore, it is recommended to take hypoallergenic, yeast-free multiple vitamins

     and minerals, to provide your body with  essential micronutrients and  to boost immunity.

     A healthy, active life-style and positive attitude also speeds recovery.

      a nutritious diet with avoidance of refined and processed foods and avoidance of tobacco and excessive alcohol are important. 

     Keep a diary of symptoms and intake of food and medicines.

     Changing your environment from polluted, humid to clean and dry.

     five to six different anti-fungals, taken in rotation.

     Heal the LGS (repair the intestinal walls) See How to heel LGS.

     Replace the microflora in the intestinal tract by taking probiotics.

     Restore the proper pH value to the intestinal system. Candida grows best in a mildly acidic environment. Therefore, Candida is usually connected with

     lack of acid. Use food or medications to acidify your gut.

     Exercise regular. Exercise is vary important. It helps your body to function more efficiently and strengthens your immune system. With increased breathing

     your body will get more energy. I personally recommend swimming, walking, jogging,  fitness programs, dancing (classical dancing especially), marshal arts,

     tai chi (chi gong) and joga. 

     Avoid mold, petrochemicals, fumes, dust, perfumes and other common allergens, which stress immune system.  

     Stop smoking. Cigarette smoke is common allergen. Introducing toxins in your system increases the overload of immune system.

     Breathe correctly. Correct breathing is important. It helps with stress and gives you energy.

 

4.2  How long does it take to cure Candida overgrowth?

 

The general rule of thumb is that it takes about a month of recovery for every year of being sick. If you were treated with lots of antibiotics two years ago, it is

reasonable to assume that antibiotics cause Candida albicans overgrowth and you need minimum two months to recover.

In general, you'll start getting major yeast symptoms about two years after the overgrowth starts. So, think back to when your symptoms started and try to figure out

what happened in the two years before that. If there was something major in that time period, that gives you a starting point (for example, if you entered puberty

then, you might have a hormonal imbalance). If not, then you might have something like parasites, which enter your body very quietly, without clear symptoms.

4.5  How to treat Candida induced hair shedding?

 

Candida can cause hair shedding in male or female patients. The exact mechanism by which Candida is able to cause hair loss is unclear primarily because there are

so many possible pathways. The three most likely pathways are:

 

     thyroid dysfunction

     allergies

     enzyme suppression

 

Possible treatments:

 

     Anti-Candida diet can significantly reduce toxins induced.

     thyroid medications

     L - Glutamine

     GLA suppresses conversion of testosterone to its derivative DHT, in the hair follicle

 

 

 

4.6 Are mainstream doctors willing to treat Candida?

 

Most doctors have been thought that yeast can overgrow only in immune system that  is severely suppressed. If one has AIDS or cancer than they will prescribe

AFs or tests, and if not they will send you home, and maybe diagnose you with IBS or tell you "It is all in your head". However, Candida occurs in people that do

not have AIDS or cancer. Today's powerful antibiotics are able to suppress good microflora and cause Candida overgrowth in few days. Many doctors will accept

that antibiotics can cause temporal Candida proliferation, but will not recognize danger of Candida and its toxins nor will they prescribe AFs. 

 

4.7 Which exercise is recommended for Candida overgrowth?

5. DIGESTION.

 

## Candida  FAQ Index ##

 

5.1 What are the rules for optimal digestion?

 

     Do not drink any liquids with meals (neither half hour before nor after meals). Liquids (especially cold ones) dilute digestive juices and interfere with

     proper digestion. 

     Eat only when hungry. <comment missing>

     Don't overload your stomach. Stop when you should stop.

     Food should not be too hot or too cold (at room temperature is optimal)

     Fresh food is preferred. If fresh is unavailable, frozen is next best. 

     Do not eat desserts. Desserts require no digestion, and if eaten with large meal, will ferment into alcohol. Alcohol taxes your liver.

 

5.2 What is food combining?

 

For food combining food is divided in following categories:

 

Protein:  all meat, all poultry, cheese, eggs, fish, Soya, milk, yogurt

 

Starches: grains, carrots, beets, cereals bread, potatoes, rice,  oats, sugar, honey , starchy squash, sweets, yams, corn

 

Neutral: vegetables,  vegetable oils,  butter, salads, fats, herbs,

 

Acid fruits:  grapefruit, orange, lemon, plums, strawberry, pineapple, sour cherries, sour apples, lime, kiwi

 

Sub-acid fruit:  apples, most grapes, sweet cherries, pears, peaches, mangoes, apricot,  papayas, most berries

 

Sweet fruit : bananas, dates, fresh figs, raisins, all dried fruit.

 

Melons: Cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon.

 

Food combining  is based on theory that different food groups differ in time needed for digestion and in chemical environment necessary for digestion. Fruits are

digested in 20 to 30 minutes, and proteins in 4 hours. If you combine fruits and protein, fruits will have to stay in stomach until proteins are digested and fermentation

will occur. Therefore,  fruits should be eaten alone. Once a protein (such as meat, fish and eggs) enters the stomach, an acid based digestive juice is produced to

digest it. Once a starch enters the stomach (such as bread, rice and potatoes) an alkaline based digestive juice is produced to digest it. If both protein and starch are

eaten together, both acid based and alkaline based juices will be produced, which will neutralize each other.  As more and more acid based and alkaline based

juices are produced and neutralized, the food will stay in stomach and process of fermentation will start causing gas, indigestion and heartburn. The digestion of

poorly combined meal will consume more energy then other sports (like running, for example) and this is why one feels very tired after certain meals. Neutral food

(like raw vegetables) will break down in either medium acid or alkaline juices. Therefore, they can be combined with either proteins or with starches.

 

Rules :

 

     Eat fruits alone.  Fruits undergo no digestion in stomach, and mixing them with other food  will slow digestion of fruit and make fermentation possible. 

     Eat melons alone. They combine with almost no other food.

     Eat only one kind of protein food at a meal. 

     Milk does not combine well with other food and should be eaten alone

     Allow at least 3 hours between protein/starch meals

 

 

 

5.3 How does fiber effects digestion?

 

Fiber is the non-digestible part of plant food and increases stool size by absorbing water. There are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber dissolves

in water and is found in oat bran, beans, peas, barley and citrus fruits. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and is found in wheat bran and some vegetables.

Fiber increases the transit time of the colon and decrease the pressure within the colon. Fiber can be added to the diet through the eating of fiber-rich food or by

taking fiber supplements.

 

5.4 What reduces acidity of stomach?

 

     Lactobacillus acidophilus

     Candida and H. pylori 

     antacids or acid reducers

     stress and anxiety (or anything that reduce stomach blood supply).

 

5.5 How to increase stomach acid?

5.6 Which digestive enzymes are there ?

 

There are three distinct categories of digestive enzymes: Proteases enzymes are involved in the breakdown of protein. Protein is composed of 20 amino acids and

there is a protease for each amino acid. Lipases break down fats, oils and cholesterol. Amylases break down carbohydrates including sugars.

 

It is important to note that amylase is introduced by the saliva. The more you chew the more amylase.

 

5.7 How to measure transition time?

 

Transition time is average time necessary for food to go through GI tract. Normal transition times is 12 -24 hours. If your transition time is less than 12 hours then

there is no enough time to absorb the food properly and you probably lack nutrients. If your transition time is more than 24 hours, toxins stay in your system more

then they should and are getting absorbed.

 

To measure transition time take 1 g. charcoal pill (available in any health food store). Note the time you took the pill and wait until your stool turns dark. The

difference between these two times is transition time. In order to calculate more precisely transition time, repeat the experiment and then take the average.

EAT IN MODERATION OR AVOID COMPLETELY.

 

                       FOOD

                                                                                  COMMENT

                        eggs

                                                    Raw eggs contain substance called avidin that interferes with absorption of biotin. Boiled eggs

                                                                   do not have this problem. Eggs are common allergen.

                       yogurt

                                                                         Sometimes contains additional sugar

                        Fruits

                                                    Avoid on strict diet, eat maximum of 1 or 2 pieces of fruit a day, preferably less sweet ones.

                       wheat 

                                                                           Hard to digest, feeds the yeast

                        nuts

                                                    usually contain mold, which feeds Candida. If roasted some of the mold will be eliminated and

                                                                  roasted nuts can be used in less strict anti-Candida diets

 

 

 

 

AVOID COMPLETELY.

 

                       FOOD

                                                                                 COMMENT

                  Artificial sweeteners

                                                   Avoid completely artificial sweeteners, like Aspartame (NutraSweet), saccharin, .... They are

                                                   very bad for your health. Use Stevia instead.

                   

 

 Fruit Juices

                                                               Usually contain lots of sugar. Exception: Freshly prepared juice

                      Caffeine

                                                    Avoid any kind of coffee, tea and soft drinks including decaffeinated coffee. See information

                                                                                 about caffeine.

                       Sugar

                                                    Feeds the yeasts big time. Elimination of all sugars: white sugar, brown sugar, honey, dextrin,

                                                                     maple sugar, beet sugar, ... Use Stevia instead.

                 left-overs, yeast, mold

                                                   It is highly likely if you have Candida overgrowth that you are allergic to mold. Also, food that

                                                   mold can grow on, can feed Candida. Avoid anything containing yeast : brewer's yeast, baker's

                                                   yeast, vitamins derived from yeast. Mold tends to grow on left-overs. Refrigerate your food or

                                                                better freeze it and try to eat it in 24 hours after preparation.

                      Alcohol

                                                   All alcohol is made by fermentation, and is forbidden in strict Candida diet. Vodka is the drink

                                                       recommended as the least harmful of all drinks if you simply have to drink something.

                       Melons

                                                                                   Too sweet

                      Vinegar

                                                   Avoid vinegar and all foods containing vinegar: mayonnaise, mustard. Fresh lemon juice can be

                                                                               used instead vinegar.

                  fermented products

                                                       such as soy sauce, soda bread,  cheese, yogurt, sauerkraut, green olives and pickled

                                                                                  vegetables.

                       Bread

                                                     Contains yeast and refined flour. It is best to avoid bread completely. Others recommend

                                                                   toasting it well. You could also be allergic to grains.

                        diary

                                                     All kinds of milk and milk products (cheese, buttermilk, ... ) should be avoided if you have

                                                                    problems digesting it. It is very common allergen.

                     tap water 

                                                        the chlorine found in most tap water is killing good bacteria living in your intestines.

                     edible fungi

                                                      like mushrooms, truffles, ... they can feed Candida or/and you can be allergic to them

                   processed food

                                                    like bacon, hot dogs, sausages, meat loafs, ... Processed foods usually contain yeast, refined

                                                                                sugar, chemicals

                       starch

                                                    Starch transfers into carbohydrates, Avoid food containing high levels of starch  like corn and

6.4 What are Stevia and Vegetable Glycerine?

 

Stevia and Vegetable Glycerine are natural, plant-derived sweeteners.

 

Vegetable Glycerine comes from any of several plants, most often coconut. You buy it in a liquid form in the supplements department of health food stores (it's often

sold as a skin care product, but as long as it's 100% pure, it's fine to eat). It substitutes well for honey in recipes, since it is a sticky, sweet liquid.

 

Stevia is a plant, and you can buy it in several forms (also in the supplements section of health food stores):

 

     dried leaves, which you use in water to make a sweet tea

     ground-up leaves in a green, powdered form

     a sweeter extract form, as a white powder or liquid. If you buy the liquid, get one that isn't processed with alcohol, and store it in the fridge once it's been

     opened. If you buy the white powdered extract, try to get one that's mixed with FOS as a filler -- it's easier to measure and tastes milder.

 

 The thing about Stevia is that it's extremely sweet, so you use only a tiny amount; it's easy to use too much and end up with a bitter after-taste. For this reason, I

find the liquid forms and the Stevia-FOS blend to be more palatable. Also, Stevia carries the same risk of mold as any spice, so it's best to store it in the freezer

(powdered forms) or 'fridge (liquid form).

 

Note that Stevia and Vegetable Glycerine do not caramelize the way sugar does, so heavily sugar-based recipes often taste quite different when made with these

alternative sweeteners. It's best to purchase Stevia cookbooks or a healthy cookbook that has many low-sugar recipes, since it is easier to substitute other

sweeteners for sugar if the sugar is not the base of the recipe.

 

In recipes that need to rise, such as cakes, Vegetable Glycerine is preferable to Stevia, as Stevia does not provide any lift to baked goods. Vegetable Glycerine

provides mild lift. These sweeteners can also be combined, to provide the right flavor and lift effect.

 

6.5  Can I cheat a little while on diet?

 

If you cheat on the diet (while taking anti-fungals) it can make yeast more resistant to anti-fungals.  Basically, when you take anti-fungals you kill off weaker strains

of yeasts while the harder strains remain. If you cheat on diet, you feed the yeast and the harder strains will proliferate. To get rid of those yeasts that remain you will

need different (stronger) anti-fungal. If you cheat on the diet, you can finish feeling worse than at the beginning of treatment.

 

Therefore, do not cheat on diet while taking anti-fungals. Wait on taking the anti-fungals until you are serious about the diet. 

 

6.6 Why is caffeine not allowed?

 

Caffeine can kill up to 75% of the friendly bacteria in the colon per cup of coffee or tea. The same goes for decaffeinated too. It takes the body approximately five

hours to replace that flora depending on the diet and the balance of the body at the time. Tea, coffee, soft drinks (like Coke) contain significant amount of caffeine.

 

6.7 What is ketosis?

 

When you reduce your carbohydrate intake ( like to under 50 gr.) , you use up your store of glycogen (blood sugar) and then your body permanently goes into fat

burning mode to fuel your bodily functions. The process of burning fat for energy is called ketosis.. Ketosis happens during fasting, low carbohydrate diets,

pregnancy and it can be caused by diabetes. Ketones are chemicals that your body produces as a by product of combusting fat.

 

6.8 Is ketosis healthy ? 

 

It is not known whether long-term ketosis caused by a high protein diet is good, bad or indifferent.

6.12  Why do we lose weight on anti Candida diet?

 

     Anti Candida diet and lifestyle changes are aimed in reducing toxins produced by Candida and overall toxic overload of the liver. Liver and gallbladder are

     important in weight loss process. If liver cannot detoxify all toxins, it will store them in fat. 

     Candida overgrowth causes nutrient deficiencies because Candida eats our food. The hunger is basically lack of nutrients. When fighting Candida we tend to

     feed ourselves and not the yeast.

     A diet high in sugar and/or carbohydrates promotes high insulin levels and/or insulin resistance. Insulin is a hormone that lowers the level of glucose in blood.

     Glucose is either stored in liver or converted to fat. Anti Candida diet is one of  low-carb diets and it doesn't elevate glucose levels in blood. In order to

     generate energy (glucose) body needs to burn fat (ketosis) and this leads to weight loss. 

     Diet high in protein promotes weight loss

Click here to read why this question is not answered.

 

6.15. What is the Glycemic Index and how does it relate to Candida albicans?

 

        Glycemic index of carbohydrate food sources, measures how quickly or slowly  they are metabolized, causing the blood sugar to rise compared to the pure

glucose.

 

        Simple carbs are high on glycemic index, while complex carbs are low on glycemic index. Complex carbs are digested more slowly, in the intestines. Since the

breakdown of complex carbs is slower, the sugar goes into the bloodstream over a longer period of time, so it doesn't cause the sudden  surge in blood sugar levels

that simple carbs do. That's why foods with simple carbs and sugar tend to have a higher glycemic index than foods with complex carbs or no carbs.

 

        If you have a major yeast overgrowth in your intestines, then eating complex carbs with a low glycemic index will feed them quite nicely. Your body digests

these foods in the intestines, so they will be converted to sugar in that location, which is right where the yeast are. On the other hand, less sugar will get into your

blood with these foods, so if your yeast is elsewhere in your body, they might be a good choice.

 

        In general, foods with a low glycemic index are a better option than those with a high index for Candida sufferers. It would be best to avoid all carbs but that is

very hard. Glycemic index is valuable resource, but other effects of food should be taken in the account : acid/alkaline effect of food, food allergies, mold on food,

nutritional value..

 

6.16  How can I stop the cravings (for food or sugar)?

 

     take virgin olive oil or coconut oil with your food.

     take trace mineral supplement with chromium and vanadium. A deficiency in these minerals cause cravings. 

     treat your self a cake or a drink with Stevia

     L-Glutamine

 

6.17 Is it possible to eliminate Candida overgrowth by fasting ?

 

Yes, it is possible to kill Candida this way, but it is generally not recommended. It is virtually impossible to starve the yeast and not to starve yourself. The point is

that the yeast is stronger and more adaptable then you. You will kill some yeast, before you kill your self but not all.

 

6.18 Which alcoholic beverages will cause the least harm while on anti-Candida diet?

 

Vodka is the alcoholic beverage that will cause the least harm. Others are either sweet or fermented.

 

6.19   What beverages are recommended ?

 

     lemonade + Stevia

     cranberries + Stevia

 

 

 

7.  FOOD ALLERGIES.

 

## Candida  FAQ Index ##

 

7.1 What is rotation diet?

 

Rotation diet is based on the concept that if you rotate food it is less likely you will develop allergies to the food you eat.  Other benefits of rotation diet include:

 

     When you rotate your food, you reduce overload of your immune system, and then you will be able to detect food allergies that you were not able before

     because of the effect of masking.

     Candida albicans is very adaptable organism: it can adapt to eat almost any food by means of mutation.  The utilization of a rotational method of taking

     food  undermines their adaptive survival mechanisms. Candida simple cannot mutate quickly enough to keep up with the constantly changing array of

     substances that they are being exposed to.

 

The exact rules or rotation diet depend how bad your LGS is. In all versions if you eat food from one food family (for instance Legumes) you are not allowed to eat

any other food from that food family for a fixed period. If you have severe problems that period is eights day, four days is recommended in most cases. You can eat

one food from one food family for only one meal (strict version) or you can eat it whole day (less strict).

 

7.2 What are food families?

 

Click here to read why this question is not answered.

 

7.3 What is LGS (Leaky Gut Syndrome) ? 

 

Leaky Gut Syndrome (also known as Intestinal Hyper-Permeability and Increased Intestinal Permeability) occurs when the wall of the GI tract is damaged. A

healthy intestinal wall allows only nutrients to pass into the bloodstream; when it is damaged, larger molecules--such as incompletely digested fats, proteins and

toxins slip through, as well. Your body, recognizes these substances as foreign and forms antibodies to them, which is why you suddenly become allergic to foods

you've always eaten without a problem. LGS also causes  "environmental allergies", causing the individual to responds to various inhalants from the environment.

Furthermore, one can form antibodies to proteins similar or same as human proteins, and then your immune system starts to attack parts of the body. This is how

autoimmune diseases, like MS or arthritis "work". Deficiencies of vitamins and minerals are common with persons with LGS because, they lack cells to move

minerals and vitamins from the gut to the blood.

 

If you have Candida overgrowth in GI tract you also have Leaky Gut Syndrome. Candida overgrowth causes LGS : when Candida changes from yeast to fungal

form it forms rhizoids, a root like structure,  that break the intestinal walls. Even when you get Candida in balance and heal the gut, your food allergies will remain for

a while because you will still have the antibodies to that food.

 

7.4 What causes LGS?

 

There are a number of causes for Leaky Gut:

 

     Candida albicans is a major cause. When Candida albicans changes to fungal form it form a root like rhizoids that break the intestinal walls and cause LGS.

     Stress The intestinal lining replaces itself, on the average, every 14 hours. To replace intestinal walls you need blood and the first organ to lose blood, during

     stress situation is intestinal tract. If you experience lot of stress, your intestinal lining will not regenerate and you will have LGS.

     Antibiotics and steroids decrease number of friendly bacteria, allow Candida to proliferate, while Candida cause LGS.

     Hormonal imbalance allow Candida to proliferate, while Candida cause LGS.

     Alcohol and caffeine decrease number of friendly bacteria, allow Candida to proliferate, while Candida cause LGS.

     Parasites or bacteria (like Giardia or H. Pylori, ...) 

     Food allergies aggravate LGS.

     Enzyme deficiencies (e.g. celiac disease, lactase deficiency causing lactose intolerance)

     NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like ibuprofen, aspirin, etc. Interfere with mucus production

     Chemicals in fermented or processed food

 

7.5 How to heal Leaky Gut?

 

     Take L - Glutamine, NAG, Butyrate, GLA, and/or DGL.

     Take Saccharomyces boulardii or/and other probiotics.

     Reduce stress

     Stop using NSAIDs (ibuprofen, aspirin,...)

     Check for parasites and treat them if found.

     Increase fiber and water intake. Fiber and water will detoxify bowel 

     Treat Candida overgrowth if applicable.

     Completely avoid the food you are allergic to.  Anything you eat a lot of is highly suspect and should be eliminated

     Rotating food is very good idea to prevent to new allergies to appear while you heal your gut.

     Eat foods that digest slowly. Foods that are high in fat are good for this. Coconut Oil, in particular, helps heal the LGS. Olive oil is also good. 

     Increase the acidity of the intestines and use digestive enzymes. Properly digested food doesn't cause allergies.

     Stop using alcohol and caffeine.

 

7.6  What is masking effect?

 

If you eat each day food that you are highly allergies to (diary, bread,...) you will not get the allergic response, after eating that food, because your immune system

produced too many antibodies, was overloaded and shut down. Instead, you will have more or less constant symptoms (fatigue, headache, brain fog, ...). This

phenomenon, in which person does not react to an excessive quantity of allergens is called masking. When you restrict your diet (Candida Control diet) you

significantly reduce the amount of allergens and your immune system starts to  react when you eat food you are allergic to. Therefore, "new allergies" can be only

masked old ones.

 

7.7 How to determine food allergies?

 

     laboratory tests for food allergies

     muscle testing (Kinesiology)

     diary (food, symptoms, AFs diary)

 

7.8 What is muscle testing?

 

Click here to read why this question is not answered.

 

7.9 Why should I keep a diary?

 

A food & reactions diary is a good way to establish connection symptoms-cause, though it's unfortunately time-consuming. Besides keeping a detailed diary, one

should review it at least once each month or more if needed to determine what is causing symptoms and to eliminate it.. One should experiment with

eliminating/introducing food, antifungals, traveling to less humid area, ... in order to find optimal combination.  The dairy should contain dated entries of: 

 

     food intake

     symptoms (new appeared and old vanished, mood swings, bloating, allergies,.) 

     supplements, antifungals, treatments, amalgams removed

     weather changes

 

7.10 What laboratory tests are used to diagnose LGS and/or food allergies?

 

ELISA

 

An Enzyme Linked Immuno Sorbent Assay (ELISA) is a blood test which can be used to detect and measure food allergies. The test is performed by culturing the

patient's lymphocytes and seeing how they react to certain foods, and other substances. It looks at immediate and delayed reactions (hidden allergies, for example 5

hours after food intake). Also, the ELISA test only looks at the foods that had been inputted in your system for the last 10 days. Any other foods will not be

detected.

 

RAST 

 

Similar to ELISA, only false negatives are more likely.

## Candida  FAQ Index ##

 

9.1  What anti-fungals are recommended?

 

 

 

           AF

                                                                   Description

   Garlic (Allium sativum)

                          can be used in supplement form or eaten as a food. Garlic has been shown to be effective against many Candida strains by

                                                  damiging the structure and integrity of the yeast cell walls.

                         The most effective form of garlic as antifungal is raw garlic.Garlic must be chewed in the mouth or minced before eating to be

                          effective. Allicin, one of the key compounds in garlic, is believed to provide many of its antimicrobial benefits. It is formed

                          when bulb is crushed. However, it is very unstable, and there are many garlic supplements that do not have the advertised

                          amounth of allicin. Garlic is one of the richest food sources of germanium. Parsley and/or fennel can be taken to reduce the

                                                           strong odor associated with its use.

      Colloidal Silver

         Olive Oil

                                              can prevent conversion of Candida Albicans from yeast to fungus form.

    Hydrogen Peroxide

                                                                used for oral thrush.

    Pau d'arco (Tabebuia

       impetiginosa)

                         Pau d'arco bark, is known for its antiviral, diuretic, and mild anti-fungal properties. Pau d'arco is obtained from a tropical tree

                          native to Brazil. . While Pau d'arco is recommended for treating Candida, it is harsh for your gut (aggravate LGS).  If you

                                                  have LGS symptoms other anti-fungals are better solution.

        gentian violet

                                                                used for oral thrush.

   Grapefruit Seed Extract

          (GSE)

                          GSE is effective and cheap antifungal. It is a very bitter oil that is extracted from the seeds of grapefruit.  Does not have any

                          side effects, except  killing good microflora to certain extent. It is different from grape seed extract. Liquid undiluted form of

                          GSE is more effective then tablets, especially for oral thrush. First, you HAVE to dilute GSE in water (undiluted GSE can

                          burn your skin or intestines), than swish it around your mouth and then swallow it. Dosage will vary, start with smaller doses

                                                                  in the beginning.

 Rutabaga (Brassica napus)

                         The Rutabaga, also known as Swede or Swedish turnip is excellent anti-fungal, especially for oral thrush. This yellowish root

                                                           can be eaten raw, baked or boiled.

         Tanalbit

                                   a nonprescription intestinal anti-fungal. It is made from natural tannins (resins found in tea) and zinc.

        Nystatin 

                                                                 Prescription only. 

         Diflucan

                         Prescription only. Can be very tough on the liver, therefore it's important to monitor liver function, especially if you take it for

                                           prolonged period. Do not take with erythromycins and some antihistamines. 

  Nizoral (or Ketoconazole)

                         This prescription anti-fungal medication can be effective against a broad spectrum of yeast organisms, but can also cause liver

                                              problems. Do not take with erythromycins and some antihistamines.

         Lamisil

                                                                  Prescription only

        Sporanox

                         Prescription only. Can be very tough on the liver, therefore it's important to monitor liver function, especially if you take it for

                                                                 prolonged period.

      Amphotericin B

                           Amphotericin B is a prescription antifungal drug, usually applied intravenously to treat a variety of life-threatening fungal

                                                                    infections.

     Undecylenic acid

                         an acid found naturally in the human body, although it's produced commercially by the vacuum distillation of castor bean oil. It

                           has been shown that  undecylenic acid is as much as six times more effective then  caprylic acid is killing Candida. Brand

                                           name of undecylenic acid is SF722 produced by Thorne Research. (very good).

       Caprylic acid

                         is a medium-chain naturally-occurring fatty acid with anti-fungal properties. Works only in intestinal tract. Coats the intestinal

                          tract and kills Candida on contact. It is easily absorbed into the intestinal membrane and can kill Candida that's permeated

                         into the tissues. The body naturally produces small amounts of this fatty acid, and it is also found in butter, coconut and palm

                                         oils. Therapeutic doses, however, must be delivered by means of supplementation.

    Tea Tree Oil (TTO)

         Oregano

                          is a pungent herb of the mint family. Contains a variety of antifungal substances and is recommended for Candida patients to

                                                               spice their food with it.

         Propolis

        Aqua Flora

     Olive Leaf Extract

       Black Walnut

                          is used to rid the body of both parasites and yeasts. Also, it is a rich  source of chromium, iodine, and tannin. Should not be

                                                     used by nursing women, because it stops lactation.

        Aloe vera

                          is a bitter herb used for GI problems, and sometimes is recommended as AF. Experience with Aloe vera as AF is usually not

                                                       positive and Aloe vera can aggravate LGS.

 

 

 

 

7 What other supplements are there for treating Candida overgrowth?    

 

 

     other supplements

                                                                    description

        Bentonite  

                          natural clay powder that traps and binds unwanted, non-nutritive substances such as herbicides, potentially harmful

                          substances like the yeast toxins, bacteria and viruses  so that they do not remain in the body. Therefore, it can be used for

                          easing the die-off symptoms.  Bentonite's mechanism of action is physical, due to its colloidal structure and charged particles.

                          Each tablespoon of Bentonite has over 900 square yards of absorptive surface area. Bentonite contains aluminum. Therefore

                          it is not recommended for long term use. 

         DHEA  

                          help to boost immunity

       Betaine HCl

                          Increases stomach acid. Helps in digesting food. If taken for extended periods one can become dependant on it.

          MSM

     milk thistle (Silybum

        marianum)

   Fructo-oligosaccharides

          (FOS) 

                          are naturally occurring carbohydrates  ( found in bananas, barley, garlic, honey, onions, wheat, and tomatoes) that cannot be

                          digested or absorbed by humans but support the growth of beneficial bacteria.  They pass through the small intestine

                          undigested and arrive at the large intestine where feed the Bifidobacterium bifidum and other bacteria that may be present

                          there. Also, FOS make your intestines more acid, which discourages Candida growth. If you have bacterial infection of large

                          intestines FOS will make your symptoms worse. Natural FOS (from artichokes) does not feed the yeast, but many FOS

                          supplements are artificially made and can feed Candida. Therefore, if you are not sure that FOS is doing you good, it may

                          be better to avoid it.

          Biotin 

                           a member of the B-Complex, biotin prevents conversion of Candida albicans from converting from single-celled yeast form

                          to multi-celled fungal form, which develops long, root-like structures, called rhizoids, that can penetrate intestinal walls. Raw

                          eggs contain enzyme avidin that interferes with absorption of biotin. When eggs are cooked this enzyme will not interfere

                          with use of biotin. Eating large quantities of raw eggs can cause biotin deficiency. People suffering from Candida overgrowth

                          are usually deficient in this vitamin, because they lack intestinal microflora that in healthy individuals produce large quantities

                          of biotin. Biotin is important building block of enzymes and facilitates metabolism of amino acids and carbohydrates.

       L - Glutamine

                          L - Glutamine is an amino acid  required for the manufacture of mucosal glycoproteins that line the intestinal membranes. The

                          glycoprotein layer protects underlying tissues from exposure to enzymes, acid and bacterial assault, while providing an

                          absorptive surface. The enterocytes are the cells in the intestinal wall that control the permeability of the gut. They get their

                          nutrients directly from the predigested food passing through the small intestines. Therefore, if your diet contains L-Glutamine,

                          your intestinal cells can absorb it directly, thereby helping themselves to return to normal functional capacity. It may take

                          several months of daily L-Glutamine supplementation to heal LGS, but with rotation diet and a few other co-factors (see

                          healing the LGS) results will be noticeable within a few weeks. Other beneficial effects include: muscle building, increased

                          secretary IgA levels in the gut, helps maintaining nitrogen balance in the body, decreases cravings for alcohol and sugar.

                          Furthermore, L-Glutamine is highly  recommended as a treatment for ulcers, Crohn's disease, IBS and diarrhea.  "L" in name

                          stands for natural amino acids,  "D" stands for synthetic and. "LD"  stands for a mix. There are some things to have in mind

                          when using L-Glutamine: When L-glutamine is converted into glutamate in the intestines, ammonia is formed. Candida and

                          parasites also form ammonia, therefore your system can be overloaded with toxins. Your body might not be able to tolerate

                          the extra ammonia at this time. Also, as glutamine induces excess water to be removed from the bowels. That property of

                          L-Glutamine can be used to threat diarrhea, but can also cause constipation. Daily need for L-Glutamine is 0.2 g/kg of body

                          weight. The person weighting 70 kg needs 14g L-Glutamine daily. L-Glutamine is found abundantly in food and average

                          person inputs 8 grams by eating. It is recommended to take L-Glutamine on empty stomach (between meals). As it requires

                          no digestion, intake of L-Glutamine with food will slow the absorbtion.

   N-acetyl-d-glucosamine

          (NAG)

                           Simple put, N-acetyl-glucosamine is glutamine mixed with sugar. NAG can be used for repairing mucosal layer. Although

                          NAG synthesis begins with L-glutamine, many people with bowel irritation and dysfunction don't make proper conversions

                          to produce sufficient amounts of NAG. Also, NAG will solve problem of L-Glutamine and There is an open question

                          whether NAG is recommended for C. albicans. Because, it contains sugar Candida could feed on NAG.  

         Psyllium 

                           is a seed, grown commercially in India. Its husk is used as a bulk forming laxative in numerous products. Contains fiber. 

      Gamma Linolenic

        Acid (GLA)

           Flax

                             Available as seed or as oil . Contains Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) omega-3 and omega-6. The flax seed also contains

                          dietary fiber (both soluble and insoluble), and must be ground before consumption. Flax thins the blood, increases oxygen

                          transport,  absorb excess acid, increase the frequency of bowel movements (helps constipation), can be used as  a

                          cholesterol-lowering and anti-cancer agent.

         Quercetin

                          Quercetin is a bioflavonoid and can be used to reduce the effects of allergies and inflammation. It stabilize mast cells and

                          they in turn release less histamine that is responsible for allergic response. You need to take it at least two weeks to see

                          improvement. 

        Golden Seal

                          Golden Seal   (Hydrastis canadensis) is effective for many digestive problems due to its tonic effects on the mucous

                          membranes. Contains barbarine. Can aggravate LGS in some cases.

  Deglycyrrhizinated licorice

          (DGL)

                          DGL is derived from licorice but without the ingredient that can cause high blood pressure when taking licorice. Helps

                          restoring the integrity of the intestinal tract lining by increasing the production of the mucous  secret cells, the primary defense

                          mechanism in the GI tract. Improves blood supply of nutrients and can cure some ulcers.

   Staphage Lysate (SPL)

        Echinacea

                           is used for stimulating immune system

         Spirulina

                          Spirulina (Spirulina plantensis) is a blue green algae, extremely pure and full of nutrients. Rich in vitamin B12,

                          beta-carotene, iron, and protein.

         Chlorella

                          Chlorella (Chlorella pyrenoidosa) is a green one celled algae. High in protein, richer in chlorophyll then alfalfa or Spirulina.

                          Used to detoxify heavy metals (like Hg) from the body and to build immune system.

         Butyrate

                          short chain fatty acid produced by good bacteria. Used to build lining of the gut.

       Molybdenum

                          is necessary for the enzymes in the liver that deal with one of the major toxins Candida releases : acetaldehyde

           GLA

      Siberian Ginseng

                          Siberian Ginseng will help in regulating adrenalin level. If you feel sleepy after taking it, it is because adrenalin level is being

                          regulated and you should take a good sleep after taking it. When you have regulated your adrenalin levels, you should not

                          feel sleepy after taking it, and you should have more energy.

 

    

 

9.3 What is pulse regime (rotation regime) for anti-fungals?

 

Candida albicans is very adaptable organism: it can adapt to exposure to almost any  anti-fungal by means of mutation.  The utilization of a rotational method of

taking anti-fungals  undermines their adaptive survival mechanisms. Candida simple cannot mutate quickly enough to keep up with the constantly changing array of

substances that they are being exposed to.

 

9.4 What are probiotics and why are they important?

 

        The human gastrointestinal tract, the small and large intestines,  is home for several hundred species of bacteria. There are several thousand billion of them in

each of us, and the total weight of bacteria is between 3-4 pounds. These bacteria play important an important part in human digestion and immune function.

"Probiotics" are live or dead bacteria administered to humans for the purpose of improving their health. The word comes  from Greek "pro bios" meaning "for life".

 

The probiotics help us in many different ways such as:

 

     kill or inhibit harmful bacteria  by secreting small quantities of antibiotic-like substances. including lactic acid, acetic acid, benzoic acid, hydrogen

     peroxide, acidolin, lactocidin and acidophilin.

     kill or inhibit yeast growth.

     produce vitamins, including niacin, folic acid, biotin, and vitamin B6.

     assist food digestion improve enzyme levels,  improve bowel regularity

     regulate pH value by producing lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, ... they increase the acidity of intestine (lower pH value) and inhibit the reproduction and

     proliferation of many harmful bacteria and yeasts.

     detoxify and protect the intestines. Lactobacilli tend to combine with toxins  (like heavy metals, and carcinogens), they die from toxins and

     are eliminated (together with toxins) as solid waste.

     reduce cholesterol levels when high

     aid absorption of minerals, especially calcium, due to increased intestinal acidity.

     supports immune system.  In one experiment, only 10 bad bacteria (Salmonella) were necessary to kill a guinea pig with an inadequate amount of

     beneficial bacteria , but about a trillion cells were required to kill an animal with its full natural beneficial microorganisms present .

     reduce risks of cancer and certain tumors.

     compete with pathogenic bacteria and yeasts for food and space. In healthy humans, good bacteria and yeast cover the surface of the mucosa and

     pathogenic bacteria and yeast cannot attach themselves.

 

        Unfortunately, new generations of antibiotics can significantly reduce number of bacteria in few weeks or even days. Generally, antibiotics are not able to differ

good bacteria from bad and prolonged use of antibiotics can significantly decrease number of friendly bacteria If you suspect that the digestive flora have been

disrupted by antibiotics (typical symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal discomfort and gas), do a comprehensive stool analysis to check the proper balance of

bacterial flora. If you cannot avoid taking antibiotics it is advised to take probiotics 2-3 hours after taking the antibiotics. Yogurt, natural probiotic, can also be used.

Few things are worth mentioning for yogurt: Pasteurization destroys live cultures. Other friendly bacteria depleting factors include: medicines, infections (bacterial,

viral and fungal), a highly processed, low-fiber diet, chronic diarrhea and stress.

 

        The probiotics, generally should be stored in refrigerator, because they lose their potency (heat will kill bacteria) at room temperature. Some manufacturers

claim that their probiotics can survive at room temperature and therefore do not require refrigeration, but these statements should be taken with reserve. Therefore,

it is recommended to purchase probiotics from a health store that keeps them in a refrigerator. Most digestive bacteria cannot survive the strong hydrochloric acid in

the stomach. Therefore, use of  probiotics in enteric coated capsules is recommended, as they will only dissolve in the lower intestine and on that way hydrochloric

acid is avoided. On the other hand, probiotics in powder form can be used for treating oral thrush.

 

9.4.1. How many different strains should a probiotics capsule contain?

 

On one hand, different strains of bacteria offer different benefits and have different abilities to colonize the intestines. The variety of strains will be more competitive.

On the other hand,  in capsules containing 10+ strains some strains will not develop because they are present in low number and they will have to compete with

other 9+ strains. 

 

9.4.2. How are Candida and intestinal microflora related?

 

If you had a healthy intestinal flora you wouldn't have the Candida albicans overgrowth.

 

When Candida albicans is killed by fungicide, it will leave the mucosa wall, and be pushed out as solid waste. Taking probiotics 15min to one hour after taking

fungicide will hopefully allow good bacteria to populate the mucosa wall. The good bacteria will fight the yeast on three ways: it will compete for food with

Candida, produce fungicide as hydrogen peroxide and help in digestion of food (alleviating LGS that way).

 

 

 

9.5 How much probiotics should I take? 

 

        The amount of probiotics necessary to replenish the intestine varies by the extent of microflora depletion and presence of harmful yeasts and bacteria.  In

general, many people advise taking 10 billion CFU per day for rebuilding of intestinal microflora and 2 billion CFU per day for the healthy maintenance of intestinal

microflora. There is a company on the web that advises and sells probiotics with 30-40 billion CFU per capsule and advise its use for Candida treatment. If diarrhea

occurs, dosage should be reduced, however, large doses are generally considered safe. Diarrhea is a mechanism that body uses to flash excess beneficial or harmful

microorganisms.

 

9.6 What strains of "good" bacteria and yeasts are there?

 

Lactobacillus acidophilus. The main and most important inhabitant of small intestines in humans. Also present in the mouth and vagina. This bacteria produces

lactase = an enzyme that digests milk sugar and produces lactic acid which suppresses undesirable bacteria and yeasts. Some strains produce natural antibiotics,

such as acidophilin and some produce hydrogen peroxide, a byproduct that attacks yeasts and "bad" bacteria. It also can lower cholesterol levels.

 

Bifidobacterium bifidum. The main and most important inhabitant of large intestines in humans. Bifidum is also found in the vagina and the lower part of the small

intestine. It produce a number of specialized acids that prevent colonization of the large intestine by invading bacteria, yeasts and some viruses. Can produce B

vitamins.

 

Lactobacillus bulgaricus  Does not proliferate in human gut. Generates very strong antifungals. Together with Streptococcus thermophilus is used to ferment

natural yogurt. Can be used as food for Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum. Some strains also produce antibiotics which kill harmful bacteria. By

manufacturing lactic acid these encourage a good environment for the resident bacteria such as Lactobacillus acidophilus and the Bifidobacterium bifidum.

 

Streptococcus thermophilus Together with Lactobacillus bulgaricus it used to ferment natural yogurt. Some strains also produce antibiotics which kill harmful

bacteria. Streptococcus thermophilus produces lactase and is very efficient in breaking down milk products.

 

Bacillus laterosporus is a single-cell life form that naturally occurs in our food chain and is found in small amounts in the intestinal tract. It rapidly colonizes the gut

and generates antifungals.

 

Lactobacillus plantarium Useful against "bad" bacteria in the intestines. Can synthesize L-Lysine.

 

Lactobacillus bifidus

 

Streptococcus faecium, a friendly form of strep bacteria, also adds a helpful function by replacing the once-present yeast. Can survive room temperature (is

somewhat heat resistant)   

 

Saccharomyces boulardii is a non-pathogenic yeast that may be used to compete with Candida. It increases secretary IgA,  important for the integrity and

immunity of the intestinal mucosa (usually deficient with those having food allergies). Can prevent diarrhea. Do not forget that anti-fungals will kill this friendly yeast.

You can take it before going to bed, for example. Saccharomyces boulardii should not be administered if patient is suffering from reactive arthritis or other disease in

which an exaggerated intestinal immune response is found.

 

Lactobacillus sporogenese  is an extremely hardy strain of lactic acid bacteria, capable of surviving the human stomach environment (most other strains are

severely reduced in viability upon entering the stomach due to the potential of severe pH fluctuations). Unlike most other strains, it does not require refrigeration,

making it much more convenient for use outside of the home and for travel.

 

Bifidobacterium longum. Produces acetic acid and this acid produces very hostile environment to Candida albicans,  HIV and most other infections of the large

intestines. It also increases IgA and therefore  improves mucosal immunity.

 

Lactobacillus rhamnosus Eight times more prolific than Lactobacillus acidophilus, digests more carbohydrates and survives bile better.

 

9.7 Can Candida be cured with probiotics alone?

 

Nope, Candida albicans is attached to mucosa wall and if anti-fungals are not taken, there will be no empty space and the majority of friendly bacteria will go down

the drain.

 

9.8 What are the rules for taking supplements/vitamins/cleanses/med./herbs ?

 

   1.Take antifungals on empty stomach, and then wait a while (two hours to 15 minutes) before taking probiotics. Probiotics are necessary to occupy place that

     antifungals free. If probiotics are not taken, strains of Candida that are resistant to antifungal will proliferate and antifungal will be ineffective. After taking

     probiotics wait a while (15 minutes to half hour) before eating to give time for probiotics to occupy free space.

   2.Take individual vitamins at a different time of day than your multivitamin. (For instance, take the multi in the morning and all of your individual vitamins

     together in the evening.) This helps you absorb them better.

   3.Betaine HCl and digestive enzymes can be taken together with vitamins and AFs, and they help absorption of vitamins and effectiveness of antifungals

     (changing pH value of GI tract favorable).

10.5 What is CFS?

 

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is an illness characterized by excessive fatigue (experienced as exhaustion and extremely poor stamina), neurological problems and

brain fog. Many other symptoms can also be present, such as : headaches, sleep disorder, sore throat and others. The illness is also known as Chronic Fatigue

Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS), and as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). One of the possible causes of CFS can be Candida overgrowth, though usually

patients do not know the cause of these syndrome.

 

 

 

10.6 How does Candida overgrowth relate to CFS?

 

CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) is an illness characterized by unexplained fatigue, weakness and muscle pain. Candida albicans can be a cause of CFS or one of

the factors that contribute to CFS, but other viruses or diseases can cause CFS, like EBV. Also, you can have Candida albicans and not have CFS. Some of the

rules that apply to CFS apply to Candida albicans and vice versa.

10.10 What is Celiac disease ?

 

Celiac disease, also known as gluten intolerance, is a genetic disorder characterized by mal-absorption of gluten due to damage to the small intestine. Symptoms of

celiac disease can include weight loss, greasy, foul-smelling stools, diarrhea, and malnutrition.

 

Individuals with celiac disease intolerance are unable to hydrolyze the gliadin ( the microvilli of the intestine which are responsible for nutrient absorption)  which

become flattened out and unable to absorb nutrients. That way LGS is developed from celiac disease causing multiple food allergies.

 

The only treatment for celiac disease is strict 100% gluten-free diet for life. To diagnose celiac disease either a biopsy of the small intestines is performed, or

patient's blood is screened  for antigliadin (AGA) and endomysium antibodies (EmA).

11. ORAL THRUSH.

 

## Candida  FAQ Index ##

 

11.1 What is oral thrush?

 

Oral thrush is fungal infection of the mouth, and sometimes of the throat. It can be caused with killing off  oral microflora or weaken immune system. Some of the

agents that kill "good bacteria" in oral cavities is caffeine (soft drinks, coffee, tea) , fluoride (most of toothpastes), Hg toxins (amalgams), antibiotics and others. Oral

thrush looks like whitish coating in the mouth, especially on the tongue. If you remove the whitish coating, you will see red, sore areas. One may experience

difficulties or pain when swallowing food or altered taste of food. 

 

11.2 What treatment is recommended for oral thrush?

 

The following are some of the recommendation for treating oral thrush :

 

     kill yeast in your mouth by gargling with one or more of the following anti-fungals: tea tree oil, Gentian Violet,  Hydrogen Peroxide, Grapefruit seed

     extract, Colloidal Silver, oil of oregano, Nystatin.

     Change your toothpaste to fluoride free one like "Tom's Of Maine" also tea tree oil is good ingredient for toothpaste

     Tanoral 

     take probiotics in powder form. 

     keep teeth clean because plaque can raise blood sugar. 

     scrap your tongue (with a plastic tongue scraper or a kitchen spoon). Especially after meals, because some food can  stay on the tongue and provide food

     for Candida. 

     clean the tongue and mouth after eating.

     avoid caffeine and chlorinated water.

     stop smoking

 

11.3 Is it possible to have oral thrush and not have Candida overgrowth in GI tract?

 

Yes, it is possible, but that is very unlikely.  The GI tract is the main location for Candida overgrowth. On other location it can grow in smaller proportions, but in GI

tract there can be few pounds of it. When Candida is removed from GI tract, normal flora replaced and gut healed, the immune system should start working, and the

treatment for oral thrush should be very effective. However, recurring oral thrush generally indicates that Candida has a strong foothold in your body.

A1.6 Where to get medications and supplements online?

 

If you have an on-line supplier that has a variety of anti-fungals, probiotics, SBOs  and LGS supplements e-mail me and I will add it to the list. It should be Candida

specialized, please do not send me sites that sell only vitamins.

 

http://www.modernherbalist.com Dr. Schlesinger offers wide range of AFs and support remedies. He also advocates Candida Clearance Rotation Protocol (which

incorporates SF-722) and I recommend to take a look at it. Dr. Schlesinger is available for free telephone consultation on Tuesdays & Thursdays, 9-11 AM,

Pacific Time, (please see his web site for information). Should you decide to take advantage of his offer, it may be a good idea to check out his site before

contacting him http://www.modernherbalist.com/ to acquire some background information before the conversation.

 

http://www.candidafighter.com Anne Mears Candida Fighters. Wide choice of anti-fungals, supplements and books, Candida related. Anne is knowledgeable and

will consult their clients for free. Good prices too.

 

http://www.needs.com is a company run by Stan Meyerson, a pharmacist. He has been working for 20 years in helping persons with Candida, CFS, MCS etc.

Among the person he has worked closely with are Dr. Sherry Rogers and Billy Crook. N.E.E.D.S. is a resource for the distribution of the supplements and other

health products at saving prices. In addition Stan Meyerson and two additional experienced nutritional counselors, who will answer and counsel persons on any

health related problems This service is free of charge by calling 1-800-634-1380 or needs@needs.com

http://www.thorne.com Thorne Research company web-page. There is a downloadable order form for patients in PDF format. 

 

http://www.customprobiotics.com Expensive but rather potent probiotics. Shipment is expensive but fast in order not to reduce potency of probiotics. They add ice

to their package in order to preserve potency.

 

http://www.natren.com One of best probiotics manufacturers.

 

http://www.mothernature.com  has lots of natural antifungals and lots of information. However, they allow customers to add comments on their products but delete /

never post any reviews that are negative. It is not fair and I encourage you to e-mail Mothernature that this policy is unacceptable.

A3. YEAST-L MAILING LIST.

 

## Candida  FAQ Index ##

 

A3.1 What is the YEAST-L Mailing List?

 

It is a group of people interested in overgrowth Candida and other yeasts. The majority of subscribers are also having Candida overgrowth. If you are not familiar

with the concept of Mailing Lists please ask someone with more experience to explain it you or subscribe and see it for yourself. 

 

A3.2 How do I subscribe to the YEAST-L Mailing List?

 

To subscribe to the Yeast-L list, send an email to: listserv@maelstrom.stjohns.edu. The subject line is not important but in the body of the note type: subscribe

Yeast-L yourname

 

After you send the subscribe command to the listserv, you'll receive an email from the listserv that requires your response. You need to reply to that email with the

word 'ok'. That will verify your address. Once your subscription has been confirmed (usually a matter of a couple of minutes) then you can set your options to your

preference.

 

A3.3 How do I get removed (signoff) from the YEAST-L Mailing List?

 

To leave the Yeast-L list, send an email to listserv@maelstrom.stjohns.edu. The subject line is not important, in the body of the note type: signoff Yeast-L.

 

A3.4 How do I send messages to members of the YEAST-L Mailing List?

 

You must first be a registered member of the YEAST-L Mailing list. 

 

To send a message to all the people currently subscribed to the list, just send mail to: yeast-l@maelstrom.stjohns.edu

 

This is called "sending mail to the list", because you send mail to a single address and LISTSERV makes copies for all the people who have subscribed. This

address (yeast-l@maelstrom.stjohns.edu) is also called the "list address". You must never try to send any list command to that address, as it would be distributed to

all the people who have subscribed.

 

A3.5 What are the YEAST-L rules?

 

In the interest of keeping the list workable for everyone, there are some steps we can all try to follow. Not everyone has unlimited space and some have to pay for

their email according to size. Because of this, we've lost many who might otherwise have contributed valuable information to the list, and in return, reaped the

benefits of belonging to the list.

 

Having said that, I'll be sending these reminders from time to time:

 

1. When responding to a long post, please take the time to delete those lines that aren't needed in order to understand what the post is about. When long posts have

a reply added, then another and another, they can become very long. And, for some, quite expensive.

 

2. On the other hand, when responding to a particular post, please do include a couple lines of that post so it's understood to which post you're referring.

 

3. When you're making a response to a particular person, or sending a message to one person, please send it privately. While there is a lot of conversation that

really has nothing to do with Yeast-L, and it's part of what makes the list as enjoyable as it is, there's also a lot of personal messages that really don't have to go to

the entire list, and shouldn't go to the entire list.

 

4. Try to remember to change the subject line when you are changing the subject. Many people use that subject line to delete the posts that don't interest them. If

you neglect to change the subject line, someone may be deleting a message that they'd really want to see, or, they may take the time & trouble to read a message,

based on the subject line, only to discover that it doesn't have anything to do with the stated subject.

 

5. Please recognize the fact that most of the posts are intended as general discussion and not directed to YOU specifically, there is no need to feel that you have to

respond to each and every post. Many times a newbie will do that and people tend to get annoyed when they see the same name over and over.

 

6. As far as I'm aware, there are no 'experts' on the list. Some people post with a tone of authority than can be misleading. Please be aware that any information you

see on this list is mostly anecdotal and should not be accepted as medical advice. Everyone's experience may be different, and while the experiences of everyone is

valuable information for the rest of us, we all need to do our own research. When done that research we should base treatment decisions on the collective

information, not on the words on one person. And everyone needs to remember what works for one person may not work for another.

 

7. And finally, don't be too quick on the trigger when someone posts something that offends or angers you. If you wait a while, you just might discover that they

didn't intend it the way it sounded. Without facial expressions, tone of voice, or body language to go by, words are often misconstrued. Try to remember to use

emotions to indicate the tone with which your words should be taken.

 

8. There is absolutely NO marketing to be done on the list. If you know of a product that may be of interest or help to others, no problem in posting about it......

UNLESS it is something you are selling yourself. If you are selling something please do not make any attempt to sell it on the list.

 

A3.6 How to search YEAST-L archives?

 

Send an e-mail to the address listserv@maelstrom.stjohns.edu and put the

following line in this e-mail:

 

Search Yeast-L keyword

 

If you prefer, you can use LISTSERV through its web interface at http://maelstrom.stjohns.edu/CGI/wa.exe  (the full manuals can also be browsed online at this

URL).

 

A3.7 Who runs the YEAST-L Mailing List?

 

The current YEAST-L Mailing List administrator is Judy Bayliss <ybayliss (at) hmc.psu.edu>.

 

A3.8 How do I change my mailing list options?

 

**NOTE** In the information that follows, there are a number of commands you can use to change your subscription options. Please understand that all of these

commands should be sent to the listserv, NOT to the list and NOT to the listowner. When you follow the instructions your command will be followed within

seconds, or at most a few minutes, since it's done automatically by the listserver. However, if you send commands to the list, or to the listowner, it could very well

be several days before someone gets back to you. I take days off, the listserver doesn't!!! :)

 

                                                      Yeast L Options

 

Digest - If you wish to get the list mail in a digested version, send an email to listserv@maelstrom.stjohns.edu. The subject line is not important but in the body of

the note type: set Yeast-L digest. If you decide you prefer the normal delivery and wish to change back, send an email to the listserv with the command: set Yeast-L

mail.

 

Nomail - If you want to stop delivery of your mail temporarily without actually leaving the list, send an email to: listserv@maelstrom.stjohns.edu. The subject line is

not important, in the body of the note type: set Yeast-L nomail. When you wish to resume delivery of your mail, send an email to listserv@maelstrom.stjohns.edu.

The subject line is not important, in the body of the note type: set Yeast-L mail.

 

Repro -  If you'd like to see your own posts as they appear on the list, send an email to listserv@maelstrom.stjohns.edu. The subject line is not important, in the

body of the note type: set Yeast-L repro.

 

Conceal - If you do not wish to have your name appear on the member list, send an email to listserv@maelstrom.stjohns.edu. The subject line is not important, in

the body of the note type: set Yeast-L conceal.

 

To get a list of the members of the Yeast-L list and their email addresses, send an email to listserv@maelstrom.stjohns.edu. The subject line is not important, in the

body of the note type: review Yeast-L

 

A3.9 What should new members do?

 

Many lists recommend that a new person 'lurk' for a while to get an idea of what the list is about and what sort of net etiquette is customary for that particular list,

before they start posting mail to the list. This list, however, is a bit different.

 

The membership includes people from around the world, mainly from the U.S., but also a few from other countries. Even though few of us have seen each other

'face to face' we've formed relationships, and it's like a big family of warm, caring people helping other people. Because of the sense of friendship, and because

Candida is such a complex and little understood condition, many times the conversation wonders off into areas that have little or nothing to do with Yeast-L. To the

new member this could give the incorrect impression that this list has no value to them, that it's involved with trivial discussions rather than anything of value. For that

reason, I recommend that new members introduce themselves right away and ask any questions you might have on your mind. I can assure you that if you are in

need of immediate help/information/support, whatever silly thing might be a current thread will immediately be dropped and you'll get many responses!

 

In most cases you'll hear from many who have had, or are having, the very same symptoms you're having. The relief of hearing from others who have had the same

experiences is tremendous, and the collective knowledge of the list is invaluable.

 

If you hang back shyly, you may never experience the true warmth and caring of the Yeast-L list. Please! Jump right in!

                                     .

                                      When an abscess forms around a hair follicle it’s called a boil - A severe abscess is a carbuncle. Abscesses, boils and

                                      carbuncles occur when the skin’s defense systems have been breached and a bacterial infection has begun.

                                      Abscesses can occur anywhere in the body, even in inner organs such as the lungs or appendix. In the skin,

                                      abscesses are more likely to develop after a small cut or puncture wound and where tight clothing rubs against the

                                      skin. A common location is the finger beside the nail bed, where tiny injuries cause infections.

 

                                      Not everyone is susceptible to abscesses and boils. Underlying causes for recurring problems are blood impurities,

                                      poor nutrition and weak resistance. Diabetics with high blood-sugar levels, as well as obese persons, have lowered

                                      resistance. A diet containing junk food, deep-fried food, which can increase the likelihood of boils and abscesses.

                                      Women who have just given birth are more prone to abscesses and young men have a tendency towards boils.

 

                                      NUTRITION

                                      Avoid pork, junk food, saturated fats and fried food. . These foods form toxic wastes which make the body prone to

                                      infection and abscesses.

 

                                      Use the healing power of carrots, spinach, kale, green beans, peas and other orange and green vegetables to help boils

                                      and abscesses clear up quickly. Eat these vegetables raw to provide enzymes, which increase metabolism and

                                      stimulate immunity. These vegetables are particularly rich in beta-carotene, which plays an important role in rebuilding

                                      tissues. They are also good sources of vitamin C, which is highly effective in fighting infection and boosting immune

                                      response. Orating or juicing will break down the cellulose tissue and make beta-carotene more available to the body.

 

                                      Ideally, begin treatment by fasting for 24 to 72 hours with the juice of fruits rich in beta-carotene-apricots, cantaloupe

                                      and mangos-to flush the body of toxins. Beta-carotene is highly sensitive to oxygen and light, so drink juices

                                      immediately after they have been pressed. After the fast, continue to support the detoxification process by drinking

                                      plenty of fluids, including fresh spring water, herb teas and diluted vegetable and fruit juices.

 

                                      Every meal should feature a salad of raw, orange or green vegetables. Always include some nuts or seeds for added

                                      zinc. Zinc not only enhances immune system function, but also releases stored vitamin A from the liver. Raw,

                                      unroasted, unsalted pumpkin seeds are the best food sources of zinc.

 

                                      Oatmeal is another good zinc source. Begin the day with a Swiss muesli made with soaked rolled oats and apricots or

                                      cantaloupe. Add wheat germ, sesame, pumpkin or sunflower seeds and yogurt or milk. This breakfast provides

                                      beta-carotene, zinc and vitamin C, as well as the immune system stimulants vitamin B6 and iron.

 

                                      Plain, unsweetened yogurt or other lactic-acid fermented food such as kefir, fermented red-beet juice or sauerkraut

                                      should be eaten daily, especially if antibiotics have been administered. These foods replenish friendly bacteria

                                      destroyed by antibiotics.

 

                                                             Use this all-natural product on any topical outbreak of the skin that is

                                      caused by yeast, parasites, fungus or bacteria. It quickly calms and soothes the affected areas.  It is

                                      highly concentrated with no fragrance.

                            and maintain the important "inner ecology" your

                            body needs to function properly and to eliminate

                            or control the symptoms that rob you of the joy

                            of living.

 

                            Take our quick quiz to see if candidiasis is what's

                            troubling you.

 

                            The Body Ecology Diet makes it easy for you to:

 

                                 Plan meals with dozens of delectable recipes, menus,

                                 and detailed shopping lists! 

                                 Learn simple principles of proper eating and food

                                 combining to rebalance your internal ecology.

                                 Use effective cleaning methods to restore your

                                 system's harmony.

                                 Develop strategies for controlling your urge to snack

                                 and for dining away from home. 

 

                            What leading experts are saying about the Body

                            Ecology Diet:

 

                            "No one has ever put together all that we need to know

                            about recovering and enhancing immunity - until now. I

                            am making it a must reading for all my patients with

                            candidiasis, immune disorders and food allergies."

                             Keith W. Sehnert, M.D.,

                            author of Selfcare/Wellcare, Stress/Unstress, and

                            coauthor of Beyond Antibiotics

 

 

                                                                           Over 50,000 copies of The Body Ecology Diet have been

                                                                           sold ...mostly as a result of friends telling friends about it,

                                                                           not advertising. Why? It works!! 

 

                                                                           If you experience pain, discomfort, fatigue, or other

                                                                           symptoms that won't go away no matter what you do or how

                                                                           many doctors you see, chances are you're one of the 80

                                                                           million Americans unknowingly suffering from candidiasis,

                                                                           the hidden invader. The result of an imbalance in the

                                                                           growth of a yeast naturally present in the body, candidiasis

                                                                           can be a key factor in: 

 

                                                                                Food allergies

                                                                                Sensitivity to tobacco and odors

                                                                                Digestive problems

                                                                                Other immune-related

                                                                                disorders

                                                                                Headaches

                                                                                Depression

                                                                                Cancer

                                                                                AIDS

                                                                                Skin rashes

                                                                                Low sex drive

                                                                                Joint and muscle pain

                                                                                Menstrual irregularities

 

 

                                                                                (In severe cases, candidiasis can be fatal).

 

                            "The Body Ecology Diet is easy to understand and chock

                            full of practical information. I recommend it!"

                             William G. Crook, M.D.,

                            author of The Yeast Connection and Chronic Fatigue

                            Syndrome

 

                            "The Body Ecology Diet brings us into the era of

                            whole-body therapy. I don't think the authors left

                            anything out."

                              Lendon H. Smith, M.D., author of Feed Your Kids

                            Right, Feed Yourself Right, and coauthor of Beyond

                            Antibiotics 

 

                            "The Body Ecology Diet takes the mystery out of the

                            often confusing topic of eating for optimum health.

                            Donna Gates' book combines recent scientific thought

                            with proven traditional healing concepts and common

                            sense..."

                             Michael A. Schmidt, M.D., author of Tired of Being

                            Tired, Managing the Patient with Chronic Fatigue, and

                            coauthor of Beyond Antibiotics

 

                                                                           Author Donna Gates, a nutritional consultant and lecturer on

                                                                           candidiasis and related immune disorders, has combined the

                                                                           best of modern medical science, ancient Chinese medicine,

                                                                           and naturopathy with the results of her years of study and

                                                                           first-hand experience in counseling clients suffering from a

                                                                           broad range of health problems.  

                                                                                Drawing on her personal experience in overcoming the

                                                                           candidiasis that plagued her own health for years, Gates

                                                                           has created a guide that anyone similarly afficted can

                                                                           easily understandand follow.

 

                                                      Comments from people on the Body Ecology Diet:

 

                                      This is my 14th day on the Body Ecology Diet 

                                       program. I have tried many different programs in the 

                                       past. I have suffered from candida for several years 

                                       and know the symptoms well. I find the program to be 

                                       an easy plan to follow and have been enjoying some 

                                       of the new grains I haven't tried before. I'm pretty 

                                       informed on health and nutrition and find this program 

                                       to be just good solid nutrition. 

                                       K.M. Sarasota, FL 

 

                                       I would like to thank you for your wonderful book, 

                                       "The Body Ecology Diet". I have been on it for about 

                                       two and a half months now, and have experienced a 

                                       very significant reduction in the symptoms of my yeast 

                                       overgrowth. I never would have imagined that my  

                                       eating habits were the cause of the physical problems 

                                       I was having (athlete's foot, itchy scalp, groin rash, 

                                       intestinal gas, etc.). Your book made it very easy to see 

                                       that I wasn't allowing my body to heal/cleanse itself, 

                                       and your program of health recovery was easy to 

                                       understand and follow, once I determined to do it.

                                              More comments  To order the Body Ecology Diet

                           

And yes, I did include a couple of desserts - and I will be adding more as I experiment with Stevia. Seems there is just not a lot out there about cooking with this

sweetening herb. The cookbooks that I have found are excellent for diabetics, but almost every recipe has something that the candida sufferer cannot have (i.e.

fruit).

 

If you find broken links, or recipes that have sugar in them, please notify me. Thanks.

 

 

 

 

 

Desserts

 

  Please note that the Stevia that I use is an expensive ($630 per kilo) concentrated white powder. You may have to alter the amount of stevia, depending on the

 brand you are using. There is a product called Sweetvia which has no aftertaste and is available in single packets. I can vouch for this product; as I have tried it and

                                                         it is excellent.

 

 

                                                      Carob Chip Cookies

                                              Deep Dark Chocolate Pudding using Stevia

                                          Chocolate Pudding (using package - do this sparingly)

                                               Chocolate Torte with Chocolate Sauce

                                                   Carob Chip Oatmeal Cookies

                                     Carob Chip Oatmeal Cookies, no white flour (these are wonderful)

                                               Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Sauce

                                                        Tapioca Pudding

                                                      Lemon Meringue Pie

                                    Double Fudge Balls (uses artificial sweetener; I have not tried these)

                                           "Fudge" (made with gelatin, good chocolate flavor)

                                  Walker's Fine Oatcakes, imported from Scotland, difficult to find in USA

                                     Lemon Meringue Pie -made with Nutrisweet (I have not tried this)

                                           Chocolate Brownies with Sauce (made with Stevia)

                                           Chocolate Brownies (variation) (made with Stevia)

                                   Lemon Cream Meringue Pie or Pudding (made with Stevia - delicious)

                                                 Rich Chocolate Tapioca Pudding

                                                     Sugarfree Carrot Cake

                                               Sugarfree Carrot Cake Variation NEW!

                                                     Vanilla Custard NEW!

 

                                           If you love cakes and feel you can't give them up,

                                    try using muffin recipes and substituting the sugar with stevia or Twin.

                                Make the entire batch in one cake pan. You'll be surprised what you can create.

            THE PROGRAM

 

            Diet alone won't work

            Diet alone won't work

            Diet alone won't work

 

            

 

            If you want to try to rid yourself of candida, get serious. The diet alone would

            take you six months to two years. With no cheating! Forget it.

 

            The doctor I went to had a "drug" or "herb" or something called Formula

            SF-722, that looked like vitamin E pills. THEY ARE THE CANDIDA

            KILLERS. I took two with every meal.

 

            Let's face it, everything has some form of natural sugar in it, therefore how can

            you get rid of these multiplying beasts if you keep feeding them?

 

            The diet lets you eliminate all forms of sugar AND THE PILLS KILL THE

            CANDIDA at the same time. I've included a copy of the diet with this website,

            as well as a typical day of eating...

 

            Where can you get the pills?

 

            1. They are available from Dr. Kenneth Piller's office. He was my doctor.  I did

            what he advised, no cheating. 

 

            2. I phoned the counsellors at http://www.needs.com/ and they sell the product,

            but they will not just dispense it to anyone who asks for it. You must speak to a

            Nutritional Counsellor. There is no charge for the call, but in the interest of good

            healing they like to share other information they have and, if needed, add

            probiotics, or other additional enhancing protocols. The three of them have over

            100 years of clinical experience in this field. They have been privileged to work

            with Dr. Sherry Rogers, a leader in treating candida, fibromyalgia, multiple

            chemical sensitivities, chronic fatigue etc., and Dr. William Crook (author of The

            Yeast Connection). They sell many other supplements and books dealing with

            these conditions at reduced prices.  Their phone number is 1-800-634-1380. I

            was impressed by them.

 

            3.  11/2000 I got in touch with Kombucha Power's website.  Quote:  "We have

            been carrying Thorne products for about 3 years now and are very confident that

            that are the very best supplements on the market today.  Anyone call us toll free

            at 1-800-862-1353 or 305-251-9630.  The page that has SF722 on it is

            procedures to Dr. Piller and also sells the SF722 product, and is willing to let

            people in the ST. PETERSBURG area know they can get help through him.

            6. Thanks to a friend on the Internet, I have been advised that there is a place in

            England which sells them (this info updated Dec. 15, 2000, thank you, Gina):

 

            Health Interlink Ltd, Interlink House, Unit B, Asfordby Business Park, Welby,

            Milton Mowbray LEICESTERSHIRE    LE14 3JL

 

            Fax number for England is 01664  810012, telephone 01664 810011.

 

            7. I found this site http://www.helioshealthcenter.com/products/suppl.htm which

            you can try as well.

 

            8.  In Australia:  Rainbow Pharmaceutical & Health, the telephone number in

            Australia is 03 9848 7890 and the fax is 03 9848 7839. They also export to

            New Zealand. 

 

            Quoted message:  "We are the distributors of all Thorne products in Australia.

            We do not have a web site as most of the Thorne products can not be registered

            in Australia and so we limit ourselves to selling via Doctors and Naturopaths. We

            feel that we provide a service to patients who have found that traditional Medical

            practitioners have let them down however for our own protection we require that

            all our products are used under supervision by someone authorized to give

            advice by the Government. We have at least one request per day for SF 722

            and those using it have had great success. Thank you for helping us to help

            people who in the past have had nowhere to go.

            9.  In Canada:  Supplements Plus in Toronto carries it. I found this website

            http://www.greenspluscanada.com/fr/on.html which might be helpful.

 

            10. The manufacturer of the product is Thorne Manufacturing, and you can

            visit their website at http://www.thorne.com/. Click on Physician and Pharmacy

            Online, then click on Patient Order Form. Formula SF-722 comes under the

            Gastrointestinal section. You will need Acrobat Reader, downloadable at their

            site. Presumably you print the form, fill it out manually, and mail it in.

 

            11. You can also do a telephone consult with Dr. David B. Schlesinger and

            order them through him, or through his website at

            http://www.modernherbalist.com/products/sf-722.html. When visiting that link,

            please read the information carefully and consider investigating the support

            remedies and supplements referred to on that page. They offer several other

            supplements of very high quality and efficacy (Molybdenum Picolinate,

            Pantethine, Iso Cort, Complete Thymic Formula) which greatly assist the body in

            its battle with yeast overgrowth. They also offer a very comprehensive,

            proprietary Candida Clearance Rotation Protocol (which incorporates SF-722).

            Since many of you are trying to "cure yourselves" without the benefit of visiting a

            doctor in person, it is worth investigating. Dr. Schlesinger's experience is that

            SF-722 works much more effectively and is much less likely to produce die-off

            reactions when used in combination with some of these support remedies.

            PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WAS NOT MY DOCTOR AND I DID

            NOT FOLLOW THIS PROGRAM.

 

            UPDATE (April 2000): Dr. Schlesinger sent me the following information:

 

            "I'm available for free telephone consultation (10 minute or less), first come, first

            served, to candida / fibromyalgia sufferers every week on the following days and

            times:

 

            Mondays 6:00-8:00 PM, Pacific Time

            Tuesdays 9:00-11:00 AM Pacific Time

            Thursdays 9:00-11:00 AM Pacific Time

 

            Our phone number is (530) 876-1176

 

            I've been doing this for the last four months and people are generally very happy

            to get some professional advice free of charge. Should you decide to post this

            info on your site, please let folks know that it may be a good idea to check out

            our site before contacting me http://www.modernherbalist.com/. It provides them

            with a little more background before we start our conversation."

 

            PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WAS NOT MY DOCTOR AND I DID

            NOT FOLLOW THIS PROGRAM.

 

            ----------------------------------------------------------

 

            Other candida killers that I am aware of include black walnut and caprylic

            acid. If you want to try this on your own, these two items are available at any

            health food store. You probably already know that you should be taking

            acidophilus as well, but keep in mind the latter are not candida busters, they

            simply help to multiply the good bacteria. The best acidophilus to get is

            Primadophilus, which is enteric coated, which means it won't break down until it

            gets to your intestines, where it will do the most good.

 

            ------------------------------------------------

 

            THE BEST BOOK is called "The Body Ecology Diet" by Donna Gates. It's

            very strict, of course, which Dr. Piller's diet isn't by comparison, but it does

            include a myriad of recipes which are delicious, and excellent information on how

            the body WORKS. You can even do the candida questionnaire online.

2 packages of artificial sweetener (like Equal, Twin)

1/2 cup butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup oats

1/3 cup whole wheat flour

This is made with gelatin, so it does not have the texture of traditional fudge. But it's rich and chocolaty and will see you

                    through that chocolate craving that you will have in the beginning. Remember that caffeine is not allowed, so if you want to

                    try making it with melted carob chips, go ahead.

 

                    1 envelope gelatin

                    1/4 cup water

                    1 square unsweetened chocolate

                    1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

                    1/4 teaspoon stevia

                    1/4 cup water

                    3/4 cup Rice Dream (or skim milk if you are not allergic to dairy)

                    1/2 teaspoon vanilla

                    1/4 cup chopped nuts, optional

 

                    Soften gelatin in 1/4 cup water for five minutes. Melt chocolate with cinnamon and stevia, add Rice Dream or Milk, and water slowly.

                    Add gelatin. Stir until dissolved. Remove from heat, add vanilla. Cool. When mixture begins to thicken, add nuts. Turn into cold small loaf

                    pan (Tupperware makes a loaf pan with a lid, I use the lid). When firm cut into pieces.

                    1/2 teaspoon vanilla

                    1/4 cup chopped nuts, optional

 

                    Soften gelatin in 1/4 cup water for five minutes. Melt chocolate with cinnamon and stevia, add Rice Dream or Milk, and water slowly.

                    Add gelatin. Stir until dissolved. Remove from heat, add vanilla. Cool. When mixture begins to thicken, add nuts. Turn into cold small loaf

                    pan (Tupperware makes a loaf pan with a lid, I use the lid). When firm cut into pieces.

The Current - January-February 2001

                           Harvest Newsletter Archives

                           Thanks for supporting local farms!

 

                           If it's really fresh, it must be local!

 

                           We've completed another season working with Red Tomato, our produce broker for

                           local and Fair Trade produce. With your support, we are making a difference for

                           farmers in New England and beyond.

 

                           Red Tomato takes a regional approach to purchasing; they believe closer to home is

                           best. However, if there are no ecologically-grown apples in Massachusetts it is

                           better to buy them from New Hampshire or Connecticut than from large growers on

                           the West Coast or from another country.

                           This regional approach is stretched to bring you a wider variety and support more

                           family farms. For example, when a particular crop is unavailable locally, they may

                           work with The Federation of Southern Cooperatives, consisting of 12,000

                           African-American farmers.

 

                           Red Tomato is not your typical produce broker. Red Tomato is a non-profit

                           (501-c-3), tax-exempt company because they have a mission beyond profit. Their

                           goal is to keep family farming viable and profitable. They keep brokerage fees low so

                           more money goes back to the farmers. Grants cover many of their operating

                           expenses.

                           They received grants this year from the Massachusetts Department of Agriculture,

                           and Oxfam, among others.

                           Your purchase of Red Tomato produce last season not only supported family farms

                           but helped local farmers move into organic farming.

                           Harvest accepted transitional organic broccoli from Holly Hill Farm in Cohasset last

                           year. This supported the Farm in their effort to farm organically, and moved them

                           one year closer to organic certification, which they have since obtained. (A farm

                           must farm for three years using organic methods before they can be certified

                           organic, during these three years the produce is labeled transitional organic.)

                           The transitional organic cranberries we sold last year supported the Orcranics

                           farmer Monica Mann. Without your support she may not have been able to convert

                           as much acreage, or as easily, to organic.

                           Your purchase of local heirloom apples last fall was a great benefit to local growers.

                           Fifty years ago New England sold a lot of "heirloom" apples. Today, the majority of

                           these varieties are not available and many orchards have gone out of business.

                           That's because the common outlet for apples in this region are packing houses.

                           Apple growers don't get paid until the apples are sold - which can take up to nine

                           months, and when they get paid it is far less than break-even prices.

                           Red Tomato is helping these growers by developing local markets for heirloom

                           apples. Red Tomato sells them direct to stores like Harvest, and offers the grower a

                           better price for their product. And you get to enjoy a wider variety of apples!

 

                           The plight of the apple growers (low demand and rock bottom prices) is

                           exacerbated by the purchasing practices of big buyers for mega-supermarket chains

                           who want to buy from only two or three large growers in each region; as opposed

                           to up to ½ dozen growers in each state.

                           For example, in the northeast region, all the apples and cider at a large chain store

                           may come from only a couple of growers in Pennsylvania. The largest apple grower

                           in Maine went out of business last year in part because of that policy.

 

                           Remember those wonderful juicy watermelon from The Federation of Southern

                           Cooperatives, in South Carolina?

                           Red Tomato is working to develop new markets for the African-American farmers of

                           the Federation Co-op, many of whom are struggling to survive. Harvest became one

                           of their new markets, and thanks to your support it was a success last year!

                           The Freeman brothers from Sea Island, South Carolina were thrilled to get a little

                           above market price for their watermelon, which was previously unheard of in the

                           normal world of produce deals. Next year these farmers are going to be growing

                           more seedless watermelon because that's what you requested. The farmers can

                           plan next year's crop with assurance. They know their crop has a committed

                           destination through Red Tomato; unlike big chains who will suddenly not buy a

                           farmer's crop if they get a better deal elsewhere.

 

                           We supported many local farms last season, and sold truck loads of local lettuce,

                           broccoli, summer squash, corn, and other produce.

                           Wards Berry Farm, (the last working farm in Sharon), Matte Farm in South

                           Dartmouth, Happy Valley Organics Farm and Nourse Farm in Whately, Pleasant

                           Valley Gardens in Methuen, and many other farmers thank you for your support!

 

 

                           Shop Smart, Eat Smart with Harvest!

                           Winter is the time of year we focus on diet and healthy lifestyles.

                           At Harvest we offer many healthy basics as well as items for special diets to assist

                           you in achieving your dietary goals.

                           In this article we will discuss good foods for low fat diets, gluten and wheat-free

                           eating, as well as, highlight a healthy, no calorie sweetener for low carbohydrate or

                           sugar-free diets.

 

                           Low Fat Diets: Start Slow, Make it Easy

                           Going on a low fat diet? Start slow; make a list of items to cut down on and

                           eliminate one a week. Simultaneously, try one or two new items each week.

                           This slow and steady change in diet will help you keep it up over time. For example,

                           over the first week you may simply cut out butter or whole milk. Purchase 1% or

                           skim milk instead.

                           For a butter substitute try Spectrum Naturals Spread in a tub, it contains neither

                           saturated fat, (the "bad" fat found in butter), or hydrogenated trans-fat, (the "bad"

                           fat found in many margarines).

                           Red meat is probably on your list of foods to minimize. Instead, eat more poultry

                           (skinless breast is best), fish, soy products, or veggie burgers. (If soy or veggie

                           burgers are new to you, try Gardenburgers in the freezer case or Lightlife tempeh

                           burgers in the refrigerator.)

                           As you make up your new low fat shopping list add whole foods that are high in

                           fiber. Fiber helps carry fat out of your system without being absorbed. Choose

                           whole grain products like brown rice, whole oats, and whole grain breads and

                           pastas. Look for products that specifically list the whole grains first on the

                           ingredients label, if it says just "flour" it means white refined flour.

                           Fresh fruits and vegetables are also on the top of the list for fiber and nutrition,

                           pack in as many as you can!

 

                           When sitting down for a meal a good rule of thumb is to divide your plate in half by

                           volume; one half should be vegetables, including salad. The other half is equally

                           divided between low fat protein (chicken, fish, beans, tofu, or tempeh,etc.) and

                           whole grains (rice, quinoa, whole grain pasta, whole grain bread, etc.). This will

                           provide you with a well balanced, low fat meal.

 

                           Lower fat "alternative" products like soy cheese, soy "cream cheese", alternative

                           "deli slices", burgers or sausages can be delicious and wonderful additions to your

                           diet. But, they may take a little experimenting to cook correctly: know that they do

                           not taste or cook exactly like their meat or dairy counterparts. Follow package

                           directions.

                           In the instance of soy or rice "cheese", it can be melted on pizza, makes great

                           grilled cheese sandwiches, and can be used in casseroles. But if you cook it too

                           long at high heat it gets hard and looses it's flavor. For best results, cook at lower

                           temperatures, just until it melts. For example, if you are making pizza, bake it

                           without the cheese. When it is done, take it out of the oven and grate Soya Kaas

                           soy mozzarella on top. Put it back in the oven for 2 to 4 minutes at about 300°,

                           just until the cheese melts, and it will be perfect!

 

                           Keep trying new items as you cut high fat foods out of your diet, you will find many

                           to add to your weekly shopping list. In a few months you will find you have slowly

                           made many healthy changes.

 

                           Gluten and Wheat-free: Excellent Alternatives We get a lot of inquiries about

                           gluten and wheat-free products. Cutting wheat and gluten out of your diet may not

                           be as difficult as it appears. It does take some work at first, reading all the labels,

                           and avoiding many common foods. However, there are a lot of great wheat and

                           gluten-free products available, and with a little practice, meals can be appealing

                           and satisfying.

                           If you are avoiding wheat, your health care practitioner has probably told you to

                           avoid products that contain any form of wheat such as flour, wheat flour, enriched

                           flour, spelt, kamut, wheat gluten, couscous, wheat berries, triticale, and modified

                           food starch, among others.

                           Spelt and Kamut are sometimes touted as "wheat-free" but both are a relative of

                           wheat; some people can tolerate them but many can not.

 

                           If you want to eliminate gluten avoid the wheats as listed above, as well as rye,

                           oats, and barley. Some people also avoid corn and brown rice, which contain

                           proteins similar to gluten. If you are sensitive to whole grain brown rice, you may

                           tolerate products made with brown rice flour because it has been refined. Everyone

                           is different; experimentation and consultation with your health care practitioner is

                           usually required to determine what foods are all right for you.

 

                           As alternatives, look for products made with the grains: rice, millet, amaranth,

                           quinoa, and teff. When you make up your shopping list include wheat-free or

                           gluten-free pasta, bread, and cookies for starters.

                           We carry quite a few pastas and several may work for you. You will find them on

                           the shelf in the grocery department with the other pastas and spaghetti. Be aware

                           that it may take a little practice to cook the pasta correctly; a few seconds

                           overdone and you may end up with paste, if underdone it will be tough. Follow

                           cooking directions carefully.

                           The rice pastas, including the brown rice pastas, are the closest in texture and

                           flavor to white flour pastas; in fact, your family may not be able to tell the

                           difference. The most popular pasta is the Tinkyada brand brown rice pasta, which

                           comes in the form of spaghetti, penne, elbows, and spirals. Ener-G also makes a

                           white rice pasta, the shells are quite good. Mrs. Leapers corn pasta is another good

                           alternative.

 

                           When you are looking for bread, look in the freezer. There you will find Food for Life

                           brand Rice Almond Bread, Rice Pecan Bread, and Millet bread. We also carry French

                           Meadow brand European Sourdough Rye.

                           The Food for Life nut breads make the most delicious toast, you'll find the aroma

                           tantalizing! Keep your bread in the freezer when you take it home. If you let it thaw

                           the bread will quickly crumble.

                           To use it, take the loaf out of the freezer and separate off one slice at a time with

                           a heavy chopping knife. The weight of the knife will allow the frozen slice to fall

                           away with little effort. (If the slice won't separate, run the knife under hot water

                           first, dry it, and try again). Then toast the bread to thaw it. It makes great

                           sandwiches as well as toast.

 

                           Also in the freezer you will find Waffle Heaven brand wheat-free waffles. They are

                           quick and easy! Eat them as you would any toaster waffle, or spread on the peanut

                           butter and jelly and eat like toast.

 

                           Another item you don't have to give up is cookies!

                           We have Country Choice wheat-free cookies in a variety of flavors and Pamela's

                           wheat-free and gluten-free cookies and shortbread also in a variety of flavors. They

                           are both very good! You will find them on the grocery shelves with the cookies.

                           These are just some of the items you will find on our shelves, and we bring in new

                           products all the time. You will not feel deprived with options like these.

 

 

                           Spotlight On: Stevia, the Non-caloric Sweetener

                           Looking for something that tastes sweet and contains no calories or carbohydrates?

                           You can find it in stevia.

                           Stevia is an extract of the South American shrub Stevia rebaudiana. Stevia

                           contains molecular compounds that taste extremely sweet. In fact, it is estimated

                           to be 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar.

                           In Japan, stevia is the number one alternative sweetener used in prepared foods

                           such as gum, candy, soft drinks, baked goods, and low calorie foods. In this

                           country it is approved for sale as a medicinal supplement.

                           That is the reason you will find stevia in our Supplements and Personal Care

                           Department rather than next to the sugar in the grocery aisle.

 

                           Stevia is a member of the Aster family and the whole herb has been used for

                           centuries by indigenous people in Latin American countries as a tonic for mental

                           alertness, digestion, and sugar metabolism.

                           The powder and clear extract may not have the same medicinal qualities as the

                           whole herb, but they work better as a sweetener.

                           As a non-caloric sweetener, tests show it does not promote the growth of bacteria

                           in the mouth (which cause tooth decay) or the overgrowth of the yeast candida

                           albicans in the colon (which causes yeast infection).

                           Since it has virtually no carbohydrate content stevia does not adversely affect

                           blood sugar levels.

 

                           Stevia has a "nectar-like" flavor, so it is not an exact substitution for sugar. The

                           flavor is compatible with everything from a hot cup of herb tea to dairy products

                           like yogurt to baked goods. Sprinkle it over your oatmeal and add some raisins and

                           chopped nuts. You can make delicious banana bread, apple bran muffins, peanut

                           butter cookies, etc.

                           About ½ to 1/3 teaspoon of the stevia powder has the sweetening capacity of an

                           entire cup of sugar, so be careful! If you add too much it will give off a strong

                           licorice-like aftertaste.

                           When you first try it, add a tiny amount to a cup of herb tea or plain yogurt. Add

                           more, a few grains at a time, until you reach the desired level of sweetness.

                           If you find that the flavor of stevia alone does not appeal to you, you can still cut

                           calories and carbohydrates by combining it with small amounts of maple syrup or

                           honey, as its flavor will take second place when paired with other sweeteners.

                           In a recipe, use less stevia and add only 1-2 tablespoons of maple syrup, honey, or

                           dried fruit.

 

                           In the Cambridge store look for Sweetleaf, Stevia Plus FOS or Stevia Supreme,

                           Organic Stevia, for stevia powder in packets, and Nu Naturals for a clear liquid form

                           of the herb.

                           In the JP store look for Wisdom of the Ancients, Stevia in both powder and liquid

                           forms, as well as Sweetleaf, Stevia Plus FOS powder in packets.

                           In the bulk herb section you can find stevia as a dried herb. Make a tea from it and

                           use the tea as a liquid sweetener.

 

                           We also carry a number of cookbooks which we recommend if you are going to try

                           baking with stevia.

                           A selection of these are: Baking with Stevia, Recipes for the Sweet Leaf by Rita

                           De Puydt, Sugar-Free Cooking with Stevia by James and Tanya Kirkland, and The

                           Stevia Cookbook by Ray Sahelain and Donna Gates, among others.

 

                           Stevia is a wonderful alternative for those who want or need to cut down on

                           sweeteners, calories, and/or carbohydrates. It may take a little practice, but it's

                           worth the effort. Enjoy!

                                                    Candida Control

 

 

 

     Candida is a genus of yeastlike fungi which reproduces by budding and is generally found in

     trace amounts in the mouth, skin, intestinal tract, and vagina of normal individuals. Candida is

     the organism most commonly associated with mycotic (yeast or fungus) infections. Ordinarily, the

     growth of this fungus is kept in check by the immune system and the beneficial bacteria of the body or flora. Individuals with

     weakened immunity, those who consume too much sugar (which feeds the fungus), and those who have taken drugs which

     kill the beneficial flora (mainly antibiotics, birth control pills, and long-term use of cortisone) may develop an infection or

     overgrowth of this fungus. This condition is referred to as Candidiasis and the organism most frequently involved is

     Candida albicans.

 

     When a Candida infection involves the mouth or throat, which usually occurs in infants and young children who have been

     on antibiotics, it is characterized by the formation of white patches and ulcers and is frequently accompanied by fever and

     gastrointestinal inflammation. This condition is referred to as Thrush. This as well as other types of candida infections,

     particularly those involving the lungs, are also very common in patients with depressed immunity, such as those suffering

     from AIDS or taking immunosuppressive drugs.

 

                                                Systemic Candidiasis

 

     Occasionally, Candida overgrowth occurs throughout the body including the liver and blood. Once in the blood, the fungus can be carried anywhere in

     the body resulting in a myriad of health problems including frequent urinary tract infections, respiratory problems, gastrointestinal and liver problems,

     food allergies, decreased immunity, frequent or chronic fungus infections of the skin and nails, and weight gain. This condition is referred to as

     Systemic Candidiasis (also known as candidosis and moniliasis.) Many of the individuals with this disease go undiagnosed for years, continuing to

     suffer from health problems which baffle their doctors. In fact, although this condition is not uncommon, medical doctors will rarely suspect it. If they

     do diagnosis it they will treat it with special antibiotics which kill fungi and yeasts. Some individuals prefer to avoid antibiotics and opt to handle their

     Candidiasis with diet, nutritional supplementation, and lifestyle changes to prevent recurrences.

 

     Systemic candidiasis can also be a complicating factor in individuals who are overweight. These individuals find it difficult to lose weight and even

     harder to keep it off, no matter what they try. Once their candida is under control they often lose weight without even trying and find it much easier to

     maintain their ideal weight.

 

                                    Who is at Risk for Systemic Candidiasis?

 

     Individuals who have been on antibiotic drugs, long-term cortisone therapy, or birth control pills and who suffer from chronic poor health; who

     experience recurrent yeast and/or fungus infections of the skin, nails, and/or mucus membranes; who have had frequent bouts of urinary or respiratory

     tract infections and allergies; who find it difficult to maintain their ideal weight, no matter what they do; or who suffer from poor resistance to illness in

     general; should consider Systemic Candidiasis as a possible contributing factor.

 

                                           Tests for Systemic Candidiasis

 

     Since some Candida is normally found in the mouth of healthy individuals, cultures taken from the saliva are not 100% effective. This is mainly because

     the doctors who interpret these tests may consider the level of candida in the saliva as "normal," when in fact it is too high. Doctors will sometimes

     make a blood culture or take a sample of the cerebrospinal fluid. However, in general, medical doctors are looking for severe life-threatening

     Candidiasis—the kind seen in AIDS and immunosuppressed patients—and they will usually ignore a moderate infection considering it insignificant.

     Many Candida tests will therefore come back negative even though the patient has "subclinical" Systemic Candidiasis which is never-the-less causing

     many problems. These people are left with three choices: 1) They can continue to suffer until their condition gets severe enough to be recognized by the

     medical profession; 2) they can seek care from an alternative practitioner who has some knowledge of Candida; or 3) they can take matters into their

     own hands by employing lifestyle and nutritional changes.

 

                                  Simple Home Tests for Systemic Candidiasis

 

     Home saliva tests for candidiasis are available from Bio Health Diagnostics, 800-570-2000. The last time I checked the cost was about $45.

     However, even if you are not officially diagnosed with Candidiasis, it is my opinion that if you experience a lot of the symptoms often associated with it,

     have used antibiotics, long-term cortisone therapy or birth control pills in the past, and suspect that you might have some yeast overgrowth in your

     body, you should consider some of the nutritional and lifestyle changes mentioned below, just to be sure. The diet and natural supplements mentioned

     for Candida are not dangerous in the least, and the support given to the immune system and to the body's natural flora can benefit just about anyone.

     (For a simple screening test to see if candida might be a problem for you, take the Lifestyle Analysis Questionnaire.)

 

                        Nutritional and Lifestyle Support for Systemic Candidiasis

 

     Candida is a persistent yeast which is difficult to clear from the body. If you think you have a Candida overgrowth, you must be serious about getting

     rid of it for it requires that you refrain from sugar for at least three weeks and maybe longer. If you "cheat" on the diet too much you will not get the

     results you expect. In addition to the diet, there are nutritional supplements that you must take to kill the fungus, clear it from the liver and blood, build

     up the immune system, repair the damage done to the intestinal tract, and replace the normal flora of the body. All of these steps must be done to get

     lasting results. The entire program takes six months. The first two or three weeks are the most difficult because of the sugar restriction. (Individuals with

     Candida often crave sweets.) After that the program is relatively easy but persistence and regularity with taking your supplements is required.

 

     The Steps (These are done simultaneously.):

 

        1.Begin with a 2-week cleanse with CleanStart.

        2.Weaken the fungus with the "Candida Diet".

        3.Take supplements to kill the fungus.

        4.Take supplements to support the immune system.

        5.Take supplements to clear the dead fungus from the liver and blood.

        6.Support any weakened body systems, especially the digestive system.

        7.Replace the friendly flora of the body.

        8.Make any lifestyle changes necessary to prevent a reinfection.

 

     Step 1: Begin with a CleanStart

 

      Begin with a 2-week cleanse with the CleanStart TM cleansing and detoxification program

      according to the directions on the package. This cleans the intestines, liver, blood and kidneys

      of waste material and toxins that are hindering the healing process.

                                                                                                       

                                                                                                                       

 

 

     Step 2: The Candida Diet

 

     In the past, some candida programs have included elaborate diets which require that you refrain from many food types. These diets are very difficult to

     follow and, in the opinion of this writer, are unnecessary if the proper nutritional supplements are taken (including a cleanse.) The most important thing

     to do during the diet is to refrain from simple sugars, especially sucrose (ordinary table sugar) and refined carbohydrates such as white wheat flour or

     "enriched" flour. Fruit juices should also be avoided due to their high natural sugar content. Whole fruits are allowed. This diet should be followed as

     closely as possible for at least three weeks—longer in severe cases or if the symptoms persist. The Candida tests mentioned above may be used as a

     monitor of your progress, however, the best monitor I have found is the way you feel.

 

     The following foods are OK. You may consume any of these:

 

          Herb teas

          Pure water (with the chlorine removed by a filter)

          Lemon juice or Liquid Chlorophyll to flavor the water

          Beverages containing no sugar (of any kind), and no fruit juice

          Almond milk

          Unsweetened cereals

          Oatmeal and oat bran

          Almonds (including almond butter)

          Sunflower seeds

          Pumpkin seeds

          Brazil nuts

          Puffed rice cakes

          Legumes

          Beans

          Peas

          Millet

          Lentils

          Corn

          Buckwheat

          Soybeans, (any soy products)

          Grains

          Brown rice

          Puffed Rice cakes

          Potatoes in moderation

 

          Meats:

          Chicken

          Fish

          Lean beef, lamb or veal

          Eggs in moderation

 

          Vegetables:

          All vegetables (make sure there is no sugar or additives)

 

          Dairy:

          Yogurt (plain low-fat only, no fruit or sugar)

          No more than one glass skim milk daily if desired

 

          Oils:

          Flax seed oil

          Cold-pressed virgin olive oil

          Sesame oil

          Almond oil

 

          Other:

          Spices

          Herbs

          Sea salt

          Homemade mayonnaisse (no sugar)

          1/2 lemon daily for salad dressing

          Stevia may be used as a sweetener. Use the pure extract or Stevia leaves only. Avoid Stevia sweeteners containing a sugar such as

          Maltodextrose.

 

     You may NOT eat any the following:

 

          Sugars of any kind. (No sucrose, dextrose, galactose, fructose, corn sweeteners, syrups, molasses, sorghum, honey, etc. You may sweeten with

          Stevia only.)

          No fruit juices.

          Avoid Refined foods:

          No products containing white flour or white rice (Brown rice is allowed.)

 

     Step 3: Take one or more supplements to kill the fungus:

 

     In conjunction with the Candida Diet described above, you should also take one or more of the following supplements to kill the fungus:

 

        1.High Potency Garlic—Take one tablet every day for at least 60 days (one bottle).

        2.Colloidal Silver—Take one bottle as directed on the label.

        3.Pau D'Arco/Taheebo Tea—Drink one to two quarts of this tea (unsweetened) every day while on the Candida Diet. If you prefer to take

          capsules, ten Pau D'Arco capsules are equivalent to one quart of the tea.

 

     Step 4: Take supplements to support the immune system:

 

     In conjunction with the above, you should also take one or more of the following to support the immune system:

 

        1.Caprylimune—Take according to the directions on the bottle throughout the Candida diet and afterward for a total of 50 days (2 bottles.)

          Continue taking if desired.

        2.Flax Seed Oil—Take at least one bottle according to the label directions. Continue taking if desired. If you crave fats, fatty foods, fried foods,

          etc. continue taking Flax Seed Oil for as long as you have these cravings. Flax Seed oil is also available in a liquid form that can be applied to

          salads, etc.

        3.Pau D'Arco/Taheebo Tea—Described above. Take as desired for up to six months.

        4.High Potency Garlic—Described above. Take one a day for as long as desired.

 

     Step 5: Take supplements to clear the dead fungus from the liver and blood:

 

        1.Liquid Chlorophyll—One teaspoon in a glass of water two times daily, or as desired. It is very important that you drink enough water during

          the cleanse and throughout the Candida program. You should drink eight glasses of purified water a day (this includes the Pau D'Arco tea if you

          are using it.) To make the water more palatable, and to aid the detoxification process, put a little liquid chlorophyll, according to your taste, in

          every glass of water that you drink.

        2.Keep your bowels moving regularly (at least once a day and preferably three times a day) taking a psyllium fiber supplement.

 

     Step 6: Support any weakened body system:

 

        1.Take the Lifestyle Analysis Questionnaire to determine your weakest body system and supplement your diet with the key product for that

          system.

        2.One of the systems that you must support is the digestive system, because of the damage the yeast does to the intestinal tract. To support this

          system take two capsules of Proactazyme plant enzymes with every meal. Take at the beginning of the meal. Bifidophilus Flora Force (see

          below) is also essential to support the digestive system.

 

     Step 7: Replace the friendly flora of the body:

 

     This is the most important step: Throughout the above program and for at least six months afterward take Bifidophilus Flora Force, two

     capsules three times per day. It is preferable that you do not take this at the same time that you take the supplements to kill the fungus. (Do not take it

     at the same time that you take the Pau D'Arco, Colloidal Silver, or Garlic. If possible, take the Bifidophilus 30 minutes to an hour before meals and

     take the other supplements after meals.)

                back   Bifidophilus Flora Force®

Beneficial "Friendly" Bacteria Supplement

Certain bacteria that reside in the body—such as lactobacillus acidophilus which is also found in natural yogurt—are essential to healthy body functions. These bacteria produce enzymes and assist in the final process of digestion. They also produce important vitamins such as vitamin K and the B vitamins: B-12, thiamin and riboflavin. They have an inhibiting action on the growth of harmful bacteria, thus maintaining healthy intestinal flora.

NSP's Bifidophilus Flora Force (a milk-free formula) contains a higher amount of acidophilus than similar products, plus it offers 1 billion bifidobacterium longum per capsule, for a total of 3.5 billion friendly microorganisms per 470 mg capsule. To help the bacteria get off to a good start, 100 mg of fructooligosaccharide, together with carrot powder, is added to each capsule. Antibiotic use and poor dietary habits can deplete these friendly bacteria. This probiotic supplement provides living organisms to help replace them.

Benefits:

·        Promotes intestinal health.

·        Supports the immune system.

·        Prevents the growth of harmful organisms, such as yeast or candida.

·        Improves nutrient assimilation.

·        Helps prevent fungus and yeast infections throughout the body, such as nail fungus and urinary tract infections.

Recommendations:
Take one or two capsules daily or as desired. Use after evey cleanse. Keep bottle refrigerated.

     Step 8: Make any lifestyle changes necessary to prevent a reinfection:

 

        1.Eat a healthy diet high in fruits and vegetables avoiding too much sugar.

        2.Take a daily fiber supplement containing psyllium.

        3.At least twice a year (in the Spring and again in the Fall) do a two week cleanse with CleanStart.

        4.Follow each cleanse with a bottle of Bifidophilus Flora Force as instructed on the bottle.

        5.To the extent possible, avoid antibiotics and other drugs that destroy the friendly flora of the body. If you must take an antibiotic, take

          Bifidophilus Flora Force at the same time and for at least one month afterward. If you continue taking birth control pills or cortisone, you must

          continue taking Bifidophilus Flora Force on a daily basis as well.

 

     Concluding Remarks:

 

     Some people may experience a healing crisis or a cleansing crisis while on this program due to the dead fungus and other toxins that your body is

     getting rid of. These toxins will circulate in your blood for a short time until they can be eliminated and can cause weakness, malaise, headache, nausea

     and other symptoms. This is a good sign and generally the symptoms are mild. Just think about how much better you are going to feel once all of this is

     out of your system! If you feel sick to your stomach or nauseated, ginger tea and/or peppermint oil (2 drops in a small glass of water) may help.

     Vigorous exercise, such as walking or bicycling, will help your body eliminate toxins faster. Drinking plenty of fluids, as mentioned above, will also

     help. Above all, use common sense and go slowly if necessary. Keep a positive attitude!

 

     If you are not ready to do the complete Candida program at this time, you should at least do the following until you are ready to

     do the complete program. This may not clear the yeast from your body entirely, but it will probably keep it from getting worse, and it may help alleviate

     many of your symptoms and give you more energy. This is the absolute minimum:

 

          In the beginning, and then twice a year (in the Spring and again in the Fall), do a two week cleanse with CleanStart.

          Take Bifidophilus Flora Force "friendly bacteria" every day, according to label directions.

          Take two capsules of Proactazyme plant enzymes with every meal.

          Take a good quality multi-vitamin/mineral supplement every day, such as Super Supplemental.

          Take a psyllium fiber supplement every day to keep your bowel movements regular. (You must have at least one bowel movement every day,

          perferably two or three a day.)

          Eat a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables avoiding too many sweets.

                        Goede darmflora geeft extra weerstand.

 

                                     70 % van de weerstand wordt bepaald in de darmen.

 

Natuurtherapeuten gaan er van uit dat ruim 70 % van de immuniteit, ofwel de natuurlijke weerstand, bepaald wordt in de

darmen. We zijn ons daar niet bewust van, wellicht omdat we onze darmen niet kunnen zien of ervaren. Bij weerstand denken

we meer aan de neus-, keel- en luchtwegen. En toch komen we via ons maagdarmkanaal het meest in kontakt met de

buitenwereld. Het oppervlak van het maagdarmkanaal is vele malen groter dan dat van de huid en de longen tezamen. Om dit

alles te beschermen tegen indringers, zoals ziekteverwekkende bacteriën, is onze afweer nodig. Deze wordt bepaald door o.a.

de witte bloedlichaampjes. Gelukkig krijgen we daarbij hulp van bacteriën, die ons geen kwaad doen, maar zelfs nuttig zijn.

Alle darmbacteriën samen noemen we de darmflora. De verhouding tussen potentieel ziekteverwekkende- en goede bacteriën

bepaalt of onze darmflora de weerstand verhoogt of niet.

 

Noodzaak goede darmflora.

 

Tientallen jaren is het belang van de darmflora onderschat. Via eenzijdige voeding en het gebruik van antibiotica krijgen

op den duur de verkeerde bacteriën ( rottings- en gistingsbacteriën ) de overhand. Het gevolg is een opgeblazen gevoel,

winderigheid en een slechte stoelgang. Erger is dat we ook nog stofwisselingsresten van deze rottingsbacteriën binnen

krijgen en dat schaadt de gezondheid. Dit kan voorkomen worden door de nuttige bacteriën, vooral Acidophilus-, Bifidum- en

melkzuurbacteriën te stimuleren. Deze nuttige bacteriën zijn van nature altijd aanwezig, maar moeten in hun groei

gestimuleerd worden. Acidophilus-, Bifidum- en melkzuurbacteriën hebben de volgende positieve invloed:

 

1. ze produceren B-vitamines en vitamine K

 

2. ze produceren stoffen die de darmen aktief houden

 

3. ze verbeteren de opname van een aantal mineralen zoals calcium

 

4. ze kunnen, wanneer ze voldoende in hun groei gestimuleerd worden, de ongewenste bacteriën afremmen.

 

Voeding kan darmflora verbeteren.

 

Via de voeding kan de darmflora gezond gehouden worden en positief beïnvloed. Enerzijds door voor de goede bacteriën een

goede omgeving en voedingsbodem te creëren zodat ze sterker kunnen groeien dan de ongunstige, anderzijds door gunstige

bacteriën in te nemen. In het laatste geval spreken we van probiotica, in het eerste van probiotica. Er zijn ook preparaten

waarin pro- en prebiotica gecombineerd zijn, dit wordt een synbioticum genoemd.

 

Probiotica.

 

Probiotica zijn levende micro-organismen die zich in het darmkanaal vestigen en de darmflora weer in het natuurlijke

evenwicht terugbrengen. Deze bacteriestammen moeten maagsap en galresistent zijn om deze twee natuurlijke barrières te

kunnen passeren. Van leveranciers mag verwacht worden dat dit het geval is. Een ander zwak punt van probiotica kan zijn dat

de bacteriën niet meer zo levensvatbaar zijn bij inname. Met andere woorden bij de produktie van het produkt waren er vele

miljoenen gunstige bacteriën aanwezig, maar is dat nog het geval na weken of maanden verblijf van het produkt in een warme

omgeving. Zeker bij kamertemperatuur kunnen de bacteriën soms snel verloren gaan. De kwaliteit is dus van groot belang voor

de werkzaamheid. Vraag de leverancier hiernaar.

 

Probiotica zijn zeer populair geworden waarvan Mona Vifit, Yakult (helaas met suiker en smaakstof) en vele ander

supermarktprodukten mede verantwoordelijk zijn. Biogarde yoghurt en drinks zijn zeker aan te raden mits zonder suiker en

additieven. Deze produkten zijn goed te gebruiken om de darmflora te onderhouden.

 

Om de darmflora gericht te verbeteren zijn er produkten in capsule of poedervorm, met speciale bacteriestammen zijn o.a.

verkrijgbaar bij Essential Organics (Probionte), Orthica en Vitals. Van oudsher bekend is het produkt Symbioflor.

 

Prebiotica.

 

De darmflora dient dagelijks te beschikken over een goede voeding. Belangrijke voeding voor de goede bacteriën zijn

voedingsvezels, inclusief slecht verteerbare zetmeelfracties, niet verteerbare koolhydraten (bv. oligi-fructose en inuline)

en stoffen zoals suikeralcoholen.

 

Door onze huidige voedingswijze krijgen de goede darmbacteriën minder voeding dan enkele tientallen jaren geleden. Volkoren

voeding, groente, fruit, peulvruchten, haver zijn de voornaamste leveranciers van deze stoffen. Het lijkt er dan ook op dat

suppletie op dit gebied noodzakelijk wordt, zeker in periodes waarin we de darmflora willen herstellen. Als we wel extra

goede bacteriën toevoeren, maar deze bacteriën onvoldoende voeding geven om zich te handhaven in de darmen, dan zal er op

den duur geen herstel plaatsvinden. Het gaat er om dat de goede bacteriën zich nestelen ofwel koloniseren en vervolgens

handhaven door zich steeds weer te kunnen vermenigvuldigen. Dit kan alleen bij een regelmatige toevoer van prebiotica. De

meest bekende prebiotica zijn oligo-fructose en inuline uit cichorei.

 

Door dagelijks oligo-fructose te eten is gebleken dat de van nature aanwezige Bifidum- en Acidophilus-bacteriën worden

gestimuleerd. Het is een keten van vruchtensuiker(=fructose)moleculen, die niet door onze spijsverteringsenzymen kan worden

gesplitst en daardoor onveranderd in de dikke darm terecht komt, waar oligo-fructose als voeding dient voor Acidophilus en

Bifidum-bacteriën.

 

Praktische aanwijzingen.

 

Een combinatie van een pro- en een prebioticum is altijd het beste. Gelet moet worden op suiker en overmatig eiwit in de

voeding. Als de darmflora verstoord is, en dus verkeerde darmbacteriën de overhand hebben, moeten we juist deze bacteriën

afremmen in hun groei. Een te overdadige voeding, wat suiker en eiwit betreft, stimuleert de verkeerde bacteriën, zoals

Candida. Volg een natuurvoedingsdieet.

 

- Probiotica: zeker aan te raden na een antibiotica-kuur, bij een verstoorde darmflora en bij Candida. Let op de

levensvatbaarheid op het moment van gebruik. Probiotica moeten na openen altijd in de koelkast bewaard worden. Combinatie

met een prebioticum is wenselijk.

 

- Prebiotica. Voor herstel van de darmflora ongeveer 8 gram oligofructose per dag, voor onderhoud naast een goed volwaardig

natuurvoedingsdieet ongeveer 4 gram per dag.

 

- Synbiotica. Combinatiepreparaten die de juiste bacteriën bevatten en de groei bevorderen verdienen de voorkeur. Om de

zuurwaarde, ofwel pH, in de darmen gunstig te beïnvloeden, kan BroodDrank gunstig zijn. Omdat Brooddrank ook levensvatbare

melkzuurbacteriën bevat is het een goed middel. Herstel van de darmflora is bij onderzoek vastgesteld, zeker ook wanneer

gebrek aan vitaliteit een belangrijk verschijnsel is bij de patiënt.

 

Als de stoelgang niet goed funktioneert en dus extra voedingsvezels nodig zijn is Colon Clean aan te bevelen. Het bevat

psylliumvezels die de stoelgang soepel maken, oligo-fructose en Acidophilus-bacteriën.

 

Sinds kort is er een vernieuwd Budwig-papje, Lynolax-ontbijt (verkrijgbaar bij reform- en natuurvoedingswinkels), waarin

naast lijnzaad, havervlokken o.a. oligo-fructose aanwezig is. Het lijkt me een goed ontbijt omdat het de darmflora en de

darmwerking tegelijkertijd aanpakt. Lijnzaad bevat unieke omega-3-vetzuren die een veelzijdige werking hebben. Dr. J.

Budwig beval dit type ontbijt met lijnzaad en lijnzaadolie aan voor kankerpatiënten. Lijnzaad is een oeroud gewas met

velerlei toepassingen. Ook in de natuurvoedingstherapie hoort lijnzaad en zeker de lijnzaadolie thuis.

Vitaminemarkt ziet er gezond uit

 

                                                                                                          

                                                                                                            08/05/00

Pionier in de handel van vitaminen en voedingssupplementen: zo ziet de Vitamin Store zichzelf. Het loopt zo'n storm in de twee proefwinkels in Amsterdam

en Heemstede, dat directeur A. Vermeulen binnen vijf jaar een keten van vijftig winkels wil hebben. De schroom waarmee de eerste klanten twee jaar

geleden over de drempel stapten, lijkt overwonnen.

 

In navolging van de Verenigde Staten is de Nederlandse markt er rijp voor. Zaterdag opent Vermeulen een derde zaak in Amstelveen en een vierde op internet.

Vermeulens voorbeeld zijn de Amerikaanse GNC-winkels, de grootste keten in de VS. Vorig jaar werd die overgenomen door het Nederlandse Numico. In

tegenstelling tot de Vitamin Store ziet die geen markt in Nederland. Maar volgens Vermeulen is er plaats voor 150 tot tweehonderd winkels.

 

Dat het zeer goed gaat met de speciaalzaak in vitaminen en voedingssupplementen, bevestigt Ellen Witvoet van de vestiging in Amsterdam-Osdorp. Ook deze

ochtend is het een komen en gaan van klanten. Voor uiteenlopende kwaaltjes en gebreken hopen ze hier een oplossing te vinden: menstruatiepijnen, hoge

bloeddruk, moeilijk kunnen plassen, jeugdpuistjes, haaruitval. Het is ook niet één bepaald type dat de winkel aandoet, al zijn er volgens Witvoet veel klanten

met een drukke baan die bewuster zijn gaan leven.

 

Best verkochte producten zijn multivitaminen en vitamine c. Maar het loopt ook storm op Slim & Trim, een 'revolutionaire afslanker'. Volgens Witvoet verloor

ze er zelf 13 kilo mee. Grote vraag is uiteraard of al die natuurlijke pilletjes van Ultravit, Vitamax of Lucovit daadwerkelijk helpen. De Vereniging tegen

Kwakzalverij zette er al eerder vraagtekens bij.

 

Er is niks bewezen, geeft ook Witvoet toe. Een keurmerk ontbreekt, al zou dat wenselijk zijn. Tevreden terugkerende klanten zijn de enige controle. Maar de

vitaminen en mineralen moeten vooral als aanvulling gebruikt worden, zegt ze. Goed eten staat voorop, het zijn niet voor niets voedingssupplementen. Al is

goed eten volgens Witvoet eigenlijk niet meer mogelijk. De kwaliteit van bijvoorbeeld landbouwproducten laat in haar ogen te wensen over.

 

De medewerkster van de Vitamin Store gelooft zelf heilig in haar producten, althans in de meeste. Zo heeft ze bijvoorbeeld twijfels bij de werking van de pillen

van Davitamon. Maar mede door advertenties vragen de klanten erom, en dus kunnen ze het krijgen.

 

Al is Witvoet niet te beroerd om die terecht te wijzen, of te vertellen dat ze wellicht beter naar de fitnesshal kunnen gaan of beter eten. En de vrouw die komt

vragen of haar medicijnen al binnen zijn, wordt streng maar beleefd gecorrigeerd. Want voor medicijnen moet je naar de apotheek.

 

Idealisme waarmee je ook je brood verdient, zo ziet de Vitamin Store zichzelf. ,,Wij draaien op eerlijk advies'', zegt de verkoopster. De mensen gezonder en

bewuster maken is het doel. Daar is steeds meer animo voor. Het bedrijf draait op de steeds ongezonder etende en jachtiger levende mens. De grote groei wil

Vermeulen bereiken met franchisers.

 

Wie echter een ontspannen introductie wil in de wondere wereld van de vitaminen, kan wellicht beginnen met een flesje Pleegzuster Bloedwijn: 13,5 procent

alcohol, driekwart liter voor ruim 13 gulden. Al pimpelend kun je zo je zenuwstelsel versterken en de spijsverbetering verbeteren. Wat wil je nog meer?

Treatments for Candida and Yeast Problems

There is no one "cure all" treatment for Candida infections. Rather, a complete program must be set up and followed. The program must address all of the following areas to maximize yeast control:

·        Begin killing off the Candida 

·        Boost the immune system

·        Gradually begin to heal the gut

·        Normalize the intestinal flora by introducing Probiotics

·        Change the diet to discourage future overgrowth

·        Ensure against the mutation of Candida into forms which resist treatment

The exact protocol used for the treatment of Candida overgrowth should be discussed with your physician after the appropriate preliminary testing. The mode of treatment often varies among different doctors. 

The initial killing off process often begins with the prescription drug Nystatin. Additional natural preparations such as Kirkman Yeast Control can be used in conjunction with Nystatin (or other prescribed anti-fungal) or can be used alternatively with it to help prevent the mutation of Candida to Nystatin resistant forms. Once resistant forms develop, higher doses of the drug are then required, often leading to further immune deficiencies. 

Boosting of the immune system involves the proper balance of nutritional supplements including vitamin C, zinc, vitamin E and vitamin B-complex. Also important can be known immune boosting products such as colostrum, beta glucan and CoEnzyme Q-10. Dr. Gupta, a leader in autism immune therapy has used immunoglobulin (IVIG) successfully. 

Gradual healing of the gut involves using products such as Kirkman's Colostrum Gold®, L-Glutamine and changing the diet to include omega 3 fatty acids and fiber. Also important is the elimination from the diet of sugar, and other "yeast feeding foods". 

Restoring the proper balance of intestinal flora is an extremely important phase of Candida treatment. Probiotics such as Kirkman's Pro-Culture Gold™ and Pro-Bio Gold™ provide for healthy levels of friendly bacteria which make it extremely difficult for Candida to inhabit the intestine. You can read about these Kirkman probiotic products in their respective places on this website

 

 

 

Kirkman's Yeast Control Formulation

After significant research and working closely with doctors specializing in autism, Kirkman has developed "Yeast Control". It is intended that this product be used in conjunction with Nystatin (or other anti-fungal), as a natural alternative to Nystatin or cyclically with Nystatin. The active ingredients per daily dosage recommendation are:

Ingredients

Amounts

Olive Leaf Extract

200 mg.

Pau d'Arco Extract

200 mg.

Goldenseal Extract

100 mg.

Caprylic Acid

100 mg.

Biotin

900 mcg.

Vitamin C

500 mg.

Oregano

100 mg.

Cranberry Extract

25 mg.

Selenium

70 mcg.

 

 

Olive Leaf Extract has been used medicinally since the early 1800's. It was originally used to treat malaria infections. Research has shown that leaves of olive trees contain a compound called "Oleuropein". This compound has antimicrobial and anti-candida properties. The olive leaf used in Kirkman's Yeast Control is a standardized extract containing 6% Oleuropein. 

Pau d'Arco is an herb which contains the anti-yeast compounds "lapachol" and "beta-lapachone". We use a standardized extract containing concentrates of these two compounds.

Goldenseal Extract has been used for fighting infections or a long time. Its high concentrations of active alkaloids including berberine, hydrastine and candidine are what makes it effective against a variety of organisms including Candida. Kirkman uses a standardized extract of Goldenseal guaranteeing the concentrations of the active alkaloids. 

Caprylic Acid is an anti-fungal which is effective against Candida. Kirkman uses a stabilized form, calcium caprylate, to ensure gradual release throughout the intestinal tract. 

Biotin is a B Vitamin which when ingested stops yeast from being converted to the fungal state. This is very important therapy because once yeast is converted to the fungal state, it forms tendrils which poke holes in the gut allowing toxins to enter the bloodstream. 

Vitamin C is present in Yeast Control because it protects the body tissues from being damaged by the toxins released by Candida. It is also a powerful immune booster which is part of the overall yeast control program. 

Cranberry Extract is a special concentrated, patented form of cranberry prepared by a resin based process which yields a concentration of active constituents 64 times more potent than other cranberry products. In vitro studies show no Candida growth when it is present. 

Oregano is an herb of the mint family which has exhibited phenomenal anti-yeast properties. An article in the Journal for Applied Nutrition in 1995 (47:96-101) presented scientific studies showing its effectiveness. Dr. Jonathon Wright, M.D. of Kent Washington uses Oregano in his practice and finds it as effective as Nystatin.

Selenium is an immune booster which produces antibody responses to all forms of infections.
