Do you have unexplained symptoms that gradually get worse over time? Have you gone to your doctor with no answers, and no results, only to return home feeling defeated and hopeless? Have you been accused of being a hypochondriac, even though you know your symptoms are very real?
You are not alone! 80% of Americans are infected with this deadly parasite that hijacks your digestive system and then takes over your entire body! Interestingly, many diseases and illnesses disappear once this invasive organism is treated. And, although the incidents are higher in the United States of America, this problem is not confined to America alone. Anyone in the world can have this awful, debilitating sickness.
80% of Americans Are Infected With Common Parasite That Causes Death, and Are Completely Unaware!
Believe it or not, most Medical Doctor’s do not acknowledge the harmful effects of systemic Candidiasis overgrowth in the body, and it is oftentimes left untreated. As a result, the symptoms only get worse.
Here are some of the most common symptoms and complications of this deadly parasite, and if you have three or more of them, chances are, you are infected!
—General all over malaise
—Sensitive/allergic to chemicals, odors, foods, perfumes
—Chronic allergies, colds, viruses
—Gastrointestinal disorders, including gas, bloating, intestinal discomfort, diarrhea and/or constipation, acid reflux
—Abormal/extreme craving for sugars and carbs
—Facial swelling, fluid retention
—Skin problems, acne, blemishes
—Skin rashes, itchy skin, redness
—Inability to concentrate
—Visual disturbances, optical migraine
—Frequent headaches, pressure
—Various types of fungal infections, including toenail fungus
—Chronic low blood pressure, poor circulation, irregular heartbeat (heart palpitations)
—Depression and frustration, especially as the illness progresses, and the quality of life is greatly reduced
—Joint/muscle aches and pains
—Vitamin deficiency, including D3 deficiency
—Malabsorption, leaky gut syndrome, etc.
—Other strange, unexplainable symptoms
This parasite feeds on sugar and carbs, and just like Miracle-Gro fertilizer, the more it is fed, the faster it grows!
Infection Throughout the Body
Systemic candidiasis occurs when Candida spreads throughout the body. Unfortunately, it can be life-threatening. The infection can affect the brain, heart, kidneys, eyes, liver, genital tract and joints. Incidents can be higher, but are not limited to, people who have low white blood cell counts (neutropenia). Another name for this infection is ‘disseminated candidiasis.’
Candidiasis, a fungal infection that can affect every part of your body, including the blood, is a rather common condition. In fact, many people have it and do not even know it. Candidiasis outbreaks can be frequent, and generally cause much discomfort, including a gradual decline in health and well-being.
Not only can Candidiasis affect the mouth, throat, windpipe, vagina and/or skin, it can also spread throughout the entire body and take over. Please note that recurrent vaginal yeast infections, and ones that are difficult to treat, can be a sign of HIV disease progression in women, so please see your health care practitioner immediately if you have any of these symptoms!
Candida, the name of the fungus, causes candidiasis, and it is perfectly normal to have a moderate amount of this fungus in the mouth, vagina, digestive tract and skin. In fact, in a healthy person, there is a perfect balance of naturally occurring bacteria and yeast—80% good bacteria vs. 20% bad. However, a weakened immune system can make it easier for Candida to spread and cause infections.
There are some common factors that pose a risk for developing Candida infections. These factors can include, but are not limited to, diabetes, pregnancy, iron, folate, and vitamin B12 or zinc deficiency, as well as the use of antihistamines. Coincidentally, chemotherapy, stress, and depression can also cause or worsen symptoms of Candidas.
Preventing and Cuing Fungal Infections Naturally
It has been proven that there is a strong connection between what you eat and Candida, as well as the overall health of your immune system, and nutritional methods of prevention and treatment can be complex. Following some basic guidelines may greatly reduce your risk of yeast becoming a problem, as well as getting rid of it.
Sugar, yeast, dairy, wheat, caffeine, nicotine and alcohol are among the most notorious culprits because they help spread yeast by feeding it and making it grow. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary that you abstain from the above foods and chemicals.
You also need to eat larger amounts of foods that help keep yeast from growing. One that has been found most effective by nutritionists is garlic because it contains natural antifungal properties help cure and prevent candidiasis. While fresh garlic is best, liquid odorless Kyolic garlic is extremely effective. However, please be aware that garlic can reduce your blood pressure.
When treating Candida, your symptoms may temporarily worsen. The reason it may temporarily worsen is because a process called die-off occurs in your body. In fact, when die-off symptoms kick in, most people abandon their treatments. I highly advise against this. It is very important to stay with the treatment no matter how bad you feel.
When yeast cells are killed at a fast rate, a die-off (or Herxheimer reaction) takes place. This happens when metabolic by-products are being released throughout the body, and the Candida yeast cells generally release 79 different toxins when they are destroyed, which include ethanol and acetaldehyde.
Biology of Candidiasis
Acetaldehyde has an entire host of detrimental effects on your health and wellbeing, which include your brain function and the destruction of brain cells. Your endocrine, immune and respiratory systems can also be affected, and it also damages the membranes of your red blood cells, reducing their ability to carry oxygen round the body. As I just mentioned, this has a direct impact on your brain, so you can see how acetaldehyde is linked to Candida symptoms such as brain fog and fatigue. These by-products can also cause allergic reactions and inflammation that lead to a number of unpleasant symptoms.
Candida die-off symptoms vary from person to person, as each will have different degrees of infestation. If you are having severe die-off symptoms, you can slow down your treatment and also reduce your dosage of probiotics and antifungals. Since the liver is the main organ that eliminates toxins, the die-off process means that it is being overwhelmed.
Here is a list of some of the most common die-off symptoms you may experience when treating Systemic Candidiasis:
—Headache, fatigue, dizziness
—Bloating, gas, constipation or diarrhea
—Increased joint or muscle pain
—Elevated heart rate
—Chills, cold feeling in your extremities
—Body itchiness, hives or rashes
—Recurring vaginal, prostate and sinus infections
—Hypersensitivity to all the things you are already allergic to
The Die-Off, or Herxheimer reaction, has been documented in research on antifungals. One 1980 study (see here) of the commercial antifungal Nystatin found the following:
According to a study in 1980 of the commercial antifungal Nystatin, the following was noted: “One phenomenon deserving emphasis is seen occasionally when therapy is initiated. It suggests the Herxheimer reaction … The reaction is usually limited to a flu-like syndrome of mild generalized aching and lowgrade fever, but may also encompass an exacerbation of the patient’s allergic manifestations.”
Coping with Candida Die-Off
These symptoms normally clear up within a week or so, but could last a little longer. There are a number of things you can do to minimize die-off during treatment, or expel the toxins more rapidly.
—Supplements such as Candidate, Candizyme, Molybdenum or Milk Thistle can help your liver expel the toxins.
—Molybdenum is extremely useful for those suffering from die-off by converting the neurotoxin acetaldehyde into acetic acid, which is then expelled by your body and/or converted into friendly digestive enzymes.
—Reduce or ‘temporarily’ (for a day or two) discontinue antifungal supplements.
—Antifungals work by rupturing the hard shell of the Candida yeast cells, which then release the many toxins that the Candida was previously producing in your body. Therefore, by reducing your antifungal dosage, it will cut down the number of toxins being dumped into your bloodstream. Once you begin feeling better, you may increase your dosage.
—Reduce your dosage of probiotics.
—A course of quality probiotics will repopulate your gut, suoffocate the Candida, heal your stomach acidity, and increase the effectiveness of your immune system. However, the good news is that probiotics are less likely to cause die-off symptoms than antifungals. However, if you begin experiencing these symptoms, you may temporarily reduce your dosage.
—Water is the number one best anti-oxidant. You will need to increase your water intake in order to flush out the toxins faster.
—In order to feel better, all those byproducts that are released by the Candida yeast need to exit your body. Drinking more water helps complete this task.
—Get as much rest as you can.
—It is proven that stress weakens your adrenal function and greatly reduces your body’s natural ability to fight pathogens such as fungal infections. Taking it easy will assist your immune system to do exactly what it was designed to do.
—Try some alternative detox methods suh as skin brushing, saunas or contrast showers.
—Most of these treatments increase your circulatory and lymphatic systems. by helping you to expel the toxins/poisons that the dying Candida cells have dumped into your bloodstream.
—Take 1000 mg of Vitamin C twice daily. I recommend a buffered form that contains bioflavonoids. This will make it easier on your stomach, and the bioflavonoids help your body to better absorb the vitamin C. Otherwise, most of the vitamin will exit your body in your waste products (urine, feces) and you will not get the full benefit of the vitamin. This multi-purpose vitamin boosts your adrenals and helps restore your immune system to health. And, as a side note, Vitamin C is a natural anti-inflammatory and has been proven effective in the treatment of allergies!
—In addition to everything else, I highly advise you to purchase a juicer. A few years ago, I purchased one from Walmart for $50. Do the green juices. Since malabsorption can occur as a result of the systemic Candidiasis, many people who are infected become malnourished because their body is not absorbing the nutrients they need from their food and vitamins. When you juice, the nutrients go straight into your bloodstream and are better absorbed by your body! For more information on juicing, please do a youtube/google search on ‘the juice lady’.

More Common Causes of Yeast Growth
Antibiotics can also contribute to yeast overgrowth in the body. Friendly bacteria are found naturally in the body, as we have discussed. They establish a healthy balance while eliminating bad yeasts. Most common antibiotics, like tetracycline and penicillin, destroy these bacteria which then allow yeast to grow and thrive. An antibiotic does not know the difference between good bacteria and bad bacteria, so it destroys both. It is quite common for many healthy people to experience a fungal infection after using antibiotics.
Remember that supplements are not meant to replace solid foods, and many can be high in sugars, which help yeast grow. If you use supplements, make sure they contain mainly complex carbohydrates, are high in protein and have low-to-moderate sugar levels.
The best way to naturally prevent fungal infections is to eat healthfully and regularly, avoid excessive sugar intake and avoid or decrease caffeine consumption, alcohol and cigarettes.
