Candidiasis is the missing link for millions.Candidiasis is actually a medical term used to describe yeast overgrowth that is found in the intestines or other parts of the body. It has been around for centuries, but it has become a chronic problem in our modern world. The infection begins in the intestines and then slowly filters out into other tissues. According to Gary Carlson of the Candida Wellness Center a significant number of people will have a candida condition at some time during their lifetime.
Candida yeast can be a very aggressive fungus. A healthy immune system keeps candida levels in check. If the immune system has been weakened, these yeast toxins which give off a waste product called acetylaldehydes can result in a variety of allergic responses in the body. This creates many common complaints including those listed above.
What causes it? Some of the causes of an overgrowth include:
A Toxic body
The consumption of sugar and junk foods is astronomical. It is estimated that each year the average American consumes 150 lbs of soft drinks, about 52 tsp. of refined sugar every day! Candida thrives on sugars, carbohydrates, alcoholic beverages and fermented foods like beer, pickles and vinegar and cheese.
The pollution in our environment contributes with the use of chemical cleaners and plastics and airborne chemicals. The toxins in our food and water also add to the mix by putting stress on the detoxification
pathways, liver, kidneys and intestines.
The use and overuse of broad spectrum antibiotics can promote excessive yeast growth. These antibiotics attack the friendly bacteria along with the bad bacteria. Without the friendly bacteria in our intestines, the candida yeasts multiply faster harboring colonies. Each infection that is treated with antibiotics encourages more yeast growth and it becomes a vicious cycle. Use alternatives to treat infections when possible or better yet, catch it before it becomes so bad. Echinacea, colloidal silver, grapefruit seed extract, homeopathics, an EPFX or Life System treatment will work on infections. “Wow that was amazing! My son had
strep throat and Louise worked on the infection and he went to school the next day.”
More and more individuals are experiencing hormone imbalances today. The cause is the artificial chemicals that resemble estrogen (known as xenon-estrogens) These are everywhere – pesticides, herbicides,
solvents in some cleaning products, plastics and petroleum products to name a few. These toxic chemicals can damage the ovaries and testicles. Birth control pills are predominantly estrogen and have been
found to promote yeast growth. Women can have yeast overgrowth in the bowel that has spread to other tissues and not have a vaginal yeast infection.
A major contributing factor to Candida is our SAD (Standard American Diet) of fast foods and processed white flour products and sugar. Even the simple sugars like maple syrup and honey can contribute to
yeast overgrowth. Candida weakens the digestion system inhibiting the absorption of the amino acids causing food allergies and furthering the cycle of complaints and symptoms.
Our society has become so fast paced and demanding and this has a negative impact on the body. Over time this causes oxidation which damages our enzyme systems. Many of us go from one stressor to the
next. Combine this with a poor diet and we are setting ourselves up for problems. One can see why stress is a factor in causing Candida overgrowth.
One of the best tools for zapping Candida and reducing stress is the EPFX, an amazing biofeedback device that identifies stressors and assists the body in getting back in balance.
Lack of the friendly Bacteria
The friendly bacteria (acidophilus and bifidus- the good bacteria in yogurt and cultured foods) is absolutely essential for the health of the intestinal wall and for digestion. “We are what we eat” is not just a catch phrase. It is truth. They say Americans take better care of their cars then their bodies. Wow, just think for a minute…would you put kerosene in your car’s gas tank and expect good performance? What
about Twinkies in your “gas tank?” How would you perform? The problem is that the body is amazing and you can get away with this for awhile or it appears that you can. What is really happening is that the
blood must maintain a certain PH, so calcium and alkalizing minerals are taken from the bones to maintain this blood PH. Then you have the beginning of osteoporosis. So, although you appear to have no ill
affects from eating sugar and junk foods, soon other imbalances appear and often Candida is involved. Protocol Identifying the presence of an overgrowth of Candida can be difficult since there are small amounts of yeast in everyone. The blood panel on the EPFX can identify Candida and work on balancing it. It is truly amazing how many dis-eases are related directly or indirectly to an overgrowth of candida. We see this daily at NHS. Recently we have been working with several clients assisting the body in cleansing the bacteria, parasites and Candida that has caused the dis-ease with excellent success. Individuals report a decrease in symptoms, sometimes relief in one session! They feel happier, lighter and less stressed.
Wow! We love it!
Everyone is different so the protocol for working on Candida varies with the individual, but there are some constants. It is important to eliminate yeast and mold containing products such as breads, cheese, cookies, and cakes that contain yeast or alcohol. A gluten free diet is the best, lots of vegetables and good proteins from fish, beef, chicken or eggs. Sweet fruits such as pineapples should be eliminated as well as caffeine drinks like coffee and black tea. Opt for herbal teas.
