Anti-candida is a power combination of herbs designed to inhibit overgrowth of Candida.
Contents: Horopito, Aniseed, Manuka, Myrrh, Golden Seal, Colloidal minerals and Vegetable Glycerine.
HEAL YOUR GUT
An overgrowth of candida can create inflammation in the gut and damage intestinal walls. This diminishes the absorption of nutrients and further imbalances beneficial bacteria. If the intestinal barrier is damaged enough to become permeable, a condition known as leaky gut syndrome-undigested protein can escape into the bloodstream and initiate an immune response. Over time, this may play a role in the development of autoimmune diseases.
RECOMMENDED HERBAL PROGRAMME WHEN CANDIDA IS PRESENT:
Anti-candida: 3-5mls twice daily
Para:10 mls each evening for 90 days non stop.
Blood Purifying Capsules 2-3 capsules 1-2 times daily before meals
Probiotics: Not available online but please call us to see what is the best type for you.
NOTE: PRESCRIPTION MAY VARY DEPENDING ON YOUR INDIVIDUAL CASE. Using the full programme which restores good gut flora and supports your Liver will help to avoid yeast die-off symptoms (e.g., headache, fatigue, muscle pain, skin breakouts, and other symptoms caused when yeast cells die off rapidly). Make sure you drink at least 2-3 litres of purified water daily.
HEALING DIETARY GUIDELINES
It’s normal to have some candida in the gut. Generally, it’s kept in check by the immune system and by beneficial bacteria that live in the intestines. But if antibiotic use, high- sugar diets, or other lifestyle factors cause probiotic counts to dwindle – or if the immune system becomes weakened for any reason candida can grow unchecked, a condition known as candidiasis. Symptoms include bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhoea, joint pain, fatigue, headaches, sinus problems, depression, and anxiety.
Once it gains a foothold in the body, yeast is tenacious and difficult to get rid of. But you can kick candida overgrowth. It just takes a little perseverance and a few sensible steps.
CUT CARBS AND OTHER YEAST PROMOTERS
Decreasing your carbohydrate intake is the foundation of any anti-candida diet. Yeast organisms use sugar for growth and reproduction, and sugar in any form allows candida yeast to grow faster and become more virulent, which can damage the intestines. On the flip side, cutting sugars and starches from your diet will slow and/or reverse candida growth.
For at least two weeks, preferably three, cut out as many carbs from your diet as you can and eliminate sugar in all forms, including fresh fruits, dried fruits, starchy vegetables, legumes, and grains. Search for hidden sugar in crackers, soups, sauces, and other processed foods. Avoid artificial sweeteners & sugar alcohols (e.g.sorbitol and mannitol), as they encourage candida growth too.
Other foods are thought to exacerbate candidiasis by compromising immunity, producing toxins, or damaging intestinal flora, or because they contain molds. Foods to avoid include alcohol, yeast, aged or processed cheeses, processed or smoked meats, peanuts, pistachios, black tea, coffee, and vinegar.
EAT THESE FOODS
Garlic: Studies show that garlic is an anti-fungal that significantly reduces candida. For maximum effectiveness, eat it raw, as cooking garlic damages allicin, the compound that’s responsible for its antimicrobial effects. Add minced garlic to salad dressings, or put a clove through a garlic press and stir into steamed veggies. If you can’t stomach it raw, try a garlic supplement or some of our Lemon and Garlic Elixer.
Coconut oil is rich in caprylic acid, an anti-fungal compound that combats yeast while leaving beneficial bacteria intact. In studies, coconut oil significantly reduced or eliminated candida. Use it for cooking or as a replacement for butter on steamed vegetables and other foods. Always seek out the unrefined organic varieties where possible. You can also swap coconut milk for cow’s milk, but avoid varieties that contain added sugars. And for canned versions, look for BPA-free cans.
Bone broths for nourishment and gut health: Bone broth made with Organic free range grass fed Chicken or Beef Bones and vegetables is the best way to heal your gut and improve immunity.
Fermented Foods: Eating foods packed with probiotics—good bacteria—is one way to boost up your gut health. Fermented foods, like yogurt and kimchi are rich in probiotics. The good bacteria grow during the fermentation process. Add these fermented foods to your diet for a healthy dose of probiotics. Examples of these are: Kefir, Kombucha, Sauerkraut or Kimchi.
