The human intestinal tract harbors just over 400 different
species of bacteria, of which there are thousands of strains. They are divided into
two general groups, "friendly" and "unfriendly". While both play an important role
in overall health, an imbalance of the normal ratios of these bacteria may result in
a wide variety of symptoms which range from anxiety
Antibiotics, birth control pills, mercury (from fillings), antacids,
stress and many
other over the counter/prescription medications kill significant levels of "friendly"
bacteria, allowing "unfriendly" bacteria to proliferate and overgrow the gut. Among the
"unfriendly" bacteria, the most aggressive and opportunistic strain is Candidiasis
Albicans, a.k.a., Candida.
How do I Know if I Have Candida?
Common symptoms may include some combination of:
Food Cravings for Sugars, Yeasts, Vinegar, Lactose (dairy)
Hypoglycemia (Candida intercepts vital nutrients in the gut)
Aching Stomach or Intestines
Gas and cramps
Adult onset allergy
Compromised or Weakened Immune System (friendly bacteria are the "front-line" defense for the human immune system
Leaky Gut Syndrome - Delusions, Violent and/or Suicidal Tendencies (advanced stages)
If this overgrowth invades the bloodstream and infects other parts of the body, it is then referred to as Systemic Candidiasis.
Next, Candida usually migrates to the tract shared by the reproductive and urinary systems.
Because of the proximity of the vaginal tract to the anus of a female, women often experience vaginitis in the early stages of development and in men, jock itch is common.
An article published in The Journal of the American Medical Association (1977) states:
"Vaginal Candidiasis does not occur naturally without infection of Candida Albicans within the large bowel and that a cure is not likely as long as the vagina remains the only treatment target."
It is also common for males to end up with candida spores in their lungs!
As Candida matures it can then permeate the intestinal membrane directly into the blood stream and be a primary cause of Leaky Gut Syndrome which in turn leads to a myriad of other, often misdiagnosed, health problems.
How Do I Control Candida Albicans?
Eliminate "Intestinal Parasites": Parasites can also cause Candida by
killing friendly bacteria. One of the most effective methods of eliminating intestinal pathogens
is to use an herbal parasitide combination, such as ParaCleans.
Clean the Intestinal Tract: It is equally important to remove old impacted
fecal matter, excess mucous that may be adhering to the inner lining of the intestinal walls. These
materials provide a "safe haven" for Candida and other intestinal pathogens and eventually lead to
the development of bowel "pockets" which can be the cause of colitis, diverticulosis and/or
diverticulitis. An oxygen based cleanser such as Oxy-Oxc is the most effective method of cleansing
the gut. More information on Intestinal Cleansing and how it affects other aspects of your health
Eliminate Intestinal Candida: The combination of Caprystatin, Vitamin C,
and grapefruit seed extract have been shown to be exceptionally effective in restoring Candida
to its normal, minority percent of intestinal flora.
Heal the Intestinal Mucous: This is accomplished quickly (normally within
5 days) with the use of one teaspoon of L-Glutamine powder twice daily on an empty stomach and
eight ounces of Organic Aloe Vera Juice also twice daily.
Restore Friendly Bacteria: You now have a friendly host environment
for the friendly bacteria to proliferate.
(Complete, detailed Directions for Use are sent with the above
Since candida prevents the absorption of nutrients, it would be appropriate to supplement
with a quality Multi-Vitamin such as All-1 Powder
in addition to eating a healthy diet.
The immune system rarely recovers while Candida still proliferates. Once back under control,
the immune system is not overworked by trying to contain ever-increasing levels of Candida.
With persistence, attention to diet and implementation of a well-established treatment protocol,
You can achieve optimal health by means of proper balance of intestinal flora.
