How to Cure Candida in 6 Steps
Hey, guys. Axe here, of functional medicine and founder of DrAxe . Today I’m going to share with you the exact diet, treatment and supplements you need to take the clear Candida from your body. And this is what I really consider to be my SixStep Candida Cure Diet Protocol. And you’re going to see amazing results with this protocol. And let me say this first, what is Candida? Candida is the overgrowth of yeast and bad bacteria in your body and it can cause some major symptoms that you want to get rid of. And so some of the symptoms of Candida can include any type of fatigue issue. If you struggle with chronic fatigue or adrenal fatigue, those can be related to Candida.
Any type of leaky gut issue. Leaky gut is intestinal permeability, where proteins like gluten can leak through your gut and cause inflammation of your body. So if you have food sensitivities or if you have digestive issues like gas and bloating, also if you have any problem related to the thyroid, those can be warning signs you have Candida. Also if you get yeast in your body. If you notice, let’s say, yeast or whiteness on your tongue or if you ever get chronic yeast infections or coming down with the cold and flu often, those can be warning signs that you have Candida. And, of course, also with Candida any sort of other digestive issues, like irritable bowel syndrome or chronic diarrhea or constipation.
Or even acid reflux, those are warning signs that you might have Candida. And last but not least, is a sluggish metabolism. If you aren’t losing weight and burning fat like you know you should be, those are warning signs you could have Candida, along with actually even bad breath and lack of detoxification. Those are some major warning signs. So here are the six things you need to do to eliminate Candida fast. Number one, you need to stop consuming so much sugar. Now, I know that’s obvious. That’s something that I think most of us realize is that sugar feeds yeast in your body. But again, you have got to get rid of processed sugar, fruit juices, any sort of added sugar.
To any sort of product sweetener. Even most packaged products and fast foods are also high in sugar. Even things like pasta sauces and crackers, you’d be surprised, but sugar is added to almost everything. So again, eliminate especially the processed sugar out of your diet. As a replacement, I recommend using a little bit of Stevia, which is a nocalorie natural sweetener and then about one to three teaspoons a day of manuka honey. Okay? Those are the sweeteners you should be using if you have Candida. Number two. You need to eliminate grains from your diet. Why? Because grains turn into sugar.
And they also tend to be more inflammatory. And so again, getting those grains out of your diet, especially wheat products and glutencontaining grains, that’s step number two. Instead, do a lot more vegetables and maybe some starchy carbs. Number three thing you have to do to clear Candida from you system, is support your spleen. Now, this is cuttingedge information that a lot of people don’t realize. And this is a practice in Ancient China that is often used by acupuncturists today. But they have found that the number one cause of Candida is a weakened spleen. And so if you have spleen issues, and spleen is responsible for digestion of the body, producing red blood cells in.
Your system. And so the spleen is a very important organ. In order to support the spleen, there are a couple things you need to do. But really the spleen is supported by starchy foods, especially squash, things like sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and also even doing certain types of beans like lentils and mung beans. So again, getting some of those good starchy carbs. And that’s really where your sweetness should come from. A little bit of butternut squash, acorn squash, foods like that that has that mild sweetness. That’s the only sweet you should be really getting in your diet. Again, with no processed sugar and, again, very low.
Amount of fruit typically when you have that, as well. But again, you want to support the spleen. Another great way to support the spleen is by drinking barley tea. You can buy roast barley tea on Amazon . And barley tea is the number one herb really that helps support the spleen as well doing that as a tea. The next thing you want to do, number four, is support the liver. The liver is crucial and supporting the liver in terms of detoxification for getting rid of Candida in your body. And again, your liver is responsible for detoxification. So for that reason you really want to support.
Do I Have Eczema or Ringworm
Do I have eczema or ringworm? Both cause red, itchy skin. But ringworm causes round or oval rashes with raised edges and a flat center that may or may not have scaling, whereas eczema can come in round patches or irregular ones. I know they look the same. I want to know how to know what I have. Ringworm tends to have the raised outer edge, whereas eczema tends to be equally rough all over the broken out area. Ringworm as it spreads tends to clear in the center, whereas eczema doesn’t.
So it is probably ringworm if it looks better on the inside than the edge. Ringworm can be spread by rubbing the affected area with a towel and then somewhere else, or picking it up by rubbing against an infected person or animal. You know it is ringworm if you had it on one arm and now have it other places. Eczema can affect both hands or both arms. Yeah, but it won’t spread like a bad rash. Actually, ring worm is a bad rash. Ringworm is a fungal infection. Eczema is an autoimmune condition, so eczema does not.
Spread, though ringworm can. How do I tell the difference? Short of a medical test? HydroCortisone will help reduce eczema itch, whereas they will worsen ringworm rashes. I do not have any on hand to try. Eczema improves if you use alcoholfree moisturizers, whereas that won’t make much difference with ringworm. How can I get rid of it?.
Ringworm clears up after a week or so of antifungal medication taken orally or on the skin, whereas eczema won’t react to that treatment. Does athlete’s foot treatments kill it? There are over the counter antifungal medicines to treat it, yes, whereas over the counter stuff aside from hydrocortisone is not available for eczema. How do you prevent it? Eczema is triggered by allergies or stress, but you cannot give it to someone else, and you cannot spread it across the body. Your might give you something to reduce.
The breakouts. I heard wool clothing, excessive bathing, harsh soaps and contact dermatitis make it worse. Yeah, and the new definition of a bad day is getting ringworm and poison ivy at the same time. Eczema is most common in middle aged men, ringworm in children, so you know you’re more likely to get eczema as you get older. You can get both at any age. True, but keeping kids with rashes away from yours reduces the risk of your kid getting.
Ringworm, plus a whole lot of other things. Saying grandpa cannot hold him because he has eczema, makes no difference except to make both boys cry.
