The remedy of the house: candida cleanse

candida cleanseCandida, a form of yeast (Candida albicans), is an opportunistic organism that usually lives in the lower bowls, the vagina, and the skin. In healthy individuals, the presence of Candida is harmless. The body maintains homeostasis employing good bacteria such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus acidophilus. The excessive growth of Candida, however, results in a condition called candidiasis that endangers the immune system and can lead to several other diseases.


Candidiasis stems from a disturbance in the equilibrium of the intestinal environment, allowing the opportunistic organism to spread in different tissues of the body. Contributing factors include the use of antibiotics, contraceptives, immunosuppression, high sugar intake, and estrogen replacement therapy. According to Michael Murray, N.D., and author of the book “Chronic Candidiasis: The Yeast Syndrome”, a comprehensive approach addresses better chronic candidiasis than drugs or natural anti-Candida agents. Candidiasis requires powerful intervention, and cleaning is an ideal way to target the cause of proliferation.


A Candida cleaning function returns the body to a state of homeostasis. Symptoms of candidiasis are insomnia, loss of libido, weight gain, headache, intestinal complaints, and even depression. The functions of a cleaning tackle the underlying cause of various symptoms by the hunger of the yeast. When the body suffers from Candida overgrowth, the immune system is affected. As mentioned in the book “Alternative Medicine: The Definitive Guide” by Larry Trivieri and John W. Anderson, Candida is being supported by sugar consumption. Sugar consumption leads to intestinal fermentation, which results in the release of the toxic composite acetaldehyde. This compound affects all physiological functions, including digestive and hormonal processes.

Prevention / Solution

Prevention is preceded by treatment. Sugar, as a predisposing factor for candidiasis, must be limited in all its forms. Natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial herbs such as chamomile, garlic, Aloe vera, ginger, and cinnamon can also help. Garlic is a known folk remedy that has proven to be more powerful than many other anti-fungal agents, especially against Candida. According to Dr. Virender Sodhi, the first Ayurvedic and Naturopathic doctor in the United States is the drug nystatin one of the most common treatments for Candida overgrowth. Dr. Sodhi of clinical experience, however, has shown that nystatin can not cure or cure Candida, as the opportunistic organism quickly mutates when attacked.


The traditional Candida cleanse eliminates all sugars from the diet, the logic that sugar feeds Gist. In addition to removing the trigger foods and stimulants that can lead to a rise in blood sugar levels, a cleansing will often remedy a natural home that uses the powerful antifungal agents such as garlic and coconut oil. According to Dr. Doug Graham, however, advisor of world-class athletes and author of the “80/10/10 lifestyle” book, sugar is not the real guilty in Candida overgrown. Dr. Graham argues that dieting high in fat causes sugar to retain fat in the blood and the contributing cause of Candida wild growth.


A program aimed at restoring balance and eradication of Candida overgrowth must provide optimal levels of immune-supporting nutrients and useful bacteria. Nutritional supplements with vitamins B, C, E and A, and the immune-conducting minerals selenium, calcium and zinc can help restore the immune system, increase resistance to infection and promote an adverse environment for parasitic organisms. Adding a daily probiotic helps restore useful bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, keeping Candida levels in check
