This also allows Phase 1 to absorb faster and deeper into your system. Sugary foods and starchy foods. This is said to not only help flush the lymphatic system, but also to soften hardened tissues, and help with the digestive system . Without these nutrients we are more susceptible to dry, flaky and inflamed skin. The family obtained the necessary nutriments from the plant. This is known as the rotation program.

Asthma or eczema is also a common indicator of Candida. When you have a yeast infection in a child, it is very important to use only non-toxic natural substances to kill the yeast overgrowth. Children are not developed physically to handle toxic drugs. The treatment must be gentle. Natural remedies which change the intestinal environment to one that is yeast-killing should be used.
Strong herbs which kill yeast and cause toxic waste from dead yeast may be too hard on children. They may become ill as the yeast is dying. When it is confirmed that the child's yeast is eliminated through proper testing, Bifidus bacteria must be given to establish friendly protective bacteria. Acidophilus may cause a child to produce excess lactic acid which can lead to mineral deficiencies, digestive problems, and fatigue.
A child with yeast must avoid milk and yogurt, as they contain milk sugar. Milk sugar will feed yeast, create congestion, mucus, and weaken the child's immune system. Candida also feeds on sugar and refined carbohydrates like: So these foods should be avoided as well. A child with Candida is often mislabeled hyperactive or learning disabled by misinformed people who seek to put children on dangerous drugs. Ritalin is a common drug given to hyperactive or learning disabled children.
Ritalin has been implicated in the rise of drug addiction and suicide in children. It is highly addictive. It has also been found that children on Ritalin tend to become more involved with other addictive drugs as well. Many times children who have Candida manifest a multiple allergic syndrome.
These children display behavioral and learning difficulties due to reactions to foods, chemicals, and preservatives. This situation also has been linked to Candida infection, not the need for these dangerous psychiatric drugs. It has been reported that children who have both behavioral or learning disabilities and Candida infection display a marked reduction of symptoms once the Candida is eliminated. One study by the Candida Research Foundation showed that out of institutionalized patients, of them had Candida.
I personally have seen many patients who were incorrectly labeled as having psychiatric disorders at an early age, who then ended up on dangerous psychiatric drugs; where in reality, the underlying cause was Candida infection and allergies.
If your child displays any of the characteristics or symptoms mentioned here, it is vital that you have the child checked by an experienced practitioner for allergies and Candida. Not only can you spare your family and your child years of hardship, but you can also vastly increase the quality of life by u nderstanding what is happening with your child's health. For the entire article go to: If you suspect that you have Systemic Candidiasis systemic means the infection has spread to other areas, and is not confined to the bowel or vaginal area , consider carefully the treatment recommended by your health practitioner.
Signs of overgrowth and the progression of spreading yeast are very similar in most cases. Gastrointestinal upset, bloating, constipation, itching rectum, burning stool, gas and, cramps are the first sign of overgrowth. This overgrowth has a chance to invade other parts of the body. Since the vaginal tract is close to the anus of a female, this seems to be where Candida first moves.
At this stage, vaginal infections or in a male, jock itch is common. At this point Candida seems to move through the tract shared by the reproductive and urinary systems. Candida can also breakthrough the intestinal membrane directly to the blood. T his is the least likely yet second major way it becomes systemic. This is a summary of the reported symptoms of progress of Candida as it goes systemic.
This data was compiled from thousands of patients. The most well known medicine for Candida might be Nystatin. According to the PDR, no detectable blood levels are found following oral administration of the drug at recommended doses.
It is, therefore, effective at reducing localized vaginal or intestinal yeast growth, but cannot travel through the blood stream to handle the infections in other areas. Another drug, Nizoral, impairs the productions of ergosterol, a vitamin D like substance, which is vital to the integrity of the yeast cell membranes.
This drug is difficult for Candidiasis patients to absorb because proper stomach acid is required to absorb it. Most patients are deficient in stomach acid. Yeast infections sometimes produce symptoms that make people believe they have excess acid.
Recent evidence shows this drug may cause serious liver damage or even fatal reactions. The yeast is very adaptive. Yeast sensitivity tests where an individual yeast is tested to see which remedies will effectively kill it have shown that the yeast can become resistant to any natural or medical therapy after a month or so of continuous use.
I have found, through the brilliant work of Dr. However, even at that, a special approach is needed to ensure effectiveness. I have found the best results, using four of the twelve or so remedies that I hand picked for the individual, in a rotation.
Using one for four days, stopping it, then switching to another for four days, stopping it, then switching to the next and so on, until all four have been run through and then repeating the cycle again and again.
The trick is that each remedy has a different chemical action in destroying the yeast. So rotating them exposes the yeast to different forms of attack. It also ensures that resistance to the remedy is avoided because use is not continuous. Many practitioners you may visit for candida treatment will tell you one of four things. Some will tell you they must do all four immediately and put you on sixty products a day. They must be done in an exact order and to full completion.
If not, the patient is likely to relapse. Reduce the acute infection. Detoxify the bowel, liver, kidneys, etc. Normalize metabolism functions of adrenals, thyroid and other systems.
Rebuild immunity and proper immune response. To do any of these out of sequence is to go appetite over tin cup. How can you rebuild the immune system if the person has a raging infection? If your house were on fire you wouldn't begin to repair your walls and structures until you put out the fire right? Overgrowth of intestinal yeast Candida albicans can be signified by a large number of skin problems, including psoriasis, inflammation, and rashes on various parts of the body.
The most common is when candida overgrows within the digestive tract and then releases "mycotoxins" yeast toxins and Neuro-toxins toxins that effect the nervous system into the Digestive tract.
These are skin problems, which are indirectly caused by Candida. These toxins can be absorbed into the blood stream and the lymphatic system. At this point these toxins have entered they general circulation and can cause a cascade of allergic reactions which result in eczema, psoriasis atopic dermatitis etc.
Candida typically causes malabsorption of many important nutrients that would normally help nourish the skin and prevent allergic reactions.
Without these nutrients we are more susceptible to dry, flaky and inflamed skin. Allergic reactions also increase due to the lack of nutrients to help the liver detoxify the allergic reaction via liver function.
It is less common that Candida causes an infection of the skin by directly invading the skin. Candida can infect mucous membranes and moist areas of the skin. Typical areas of infection are the lining of the mouth and vagina, the genital area and anus, the armpits, the skin under the breasts in women, and the skin folds of the stomach.
Conditions that enable Candida to infect the skin include hot, humid weather; tight, synthetic underclothing; poor hygiene; and inflammatory diseases, such as psoriasis, occurring in the skin folds.
These are skin problems that are caused by the direct growth of candida on the skin! Small pustules may appear, especially at the edges of the rash, and the rash may itch intensely or burn. A Candida rash around the anus may be raw, white or red, and itchy.
Babies may develop a Candida rash in the diaper area. Many years ago I discovered that parasites could cause Candida.
This is covered in other articles and writings that you can find on our Web site. The exact mechanics of this is simple. Parasite destroy friendly flora just like antibiotics do. Many parasites excrete ammonia and other toxic chemicals that destroy friendly flora like acidophilus.
Some parasites also depress the immune response in the intestinal tract allowing yeasts to overgrow. Anything that destroys friendly flora can cause an overgrowth of Candida since friendly flora holds Candida in check.
The purpose of Phase 0 is to eliminate enough of the parasites from the lining of the intestinal tract so that the person will not quickly relapse on Phase 1. Phs0 also eliminates the top layers of Candida growth so there is less die-off from Phase 1 that could make you feel sick. This also allows Phase 1 to absorb faster and deeper into your system.
The purpose of Phase 1 is to eliminate and destroy most of the candida in the body. This program destroys candida in the intestines, the blood, lymph and vital organs.
This is known as the rotation program. Once we have tested the person to discover the type of Candida they have, we now select 4 substances that are especially effective on that type of Candida. The first one is taken for a 4-day period, stopped and then we move to the next one for another 4 days, this is repeated over and over again.
This is done so that the candida does not develop a resistance to the substance. At this time hormones are checked and a program to correct them is begun as an adjunct. If the hormones are imbalanced the Candida will not fully clear and Phase 1 will not kill all of its intended victims!
The purpose of Phase 2 is to: If this candida is not removed it will eventually cause a full-blown relapse within 6 months to year. This is not done in phase 1 or phase 0 because we have proved that candida will prevent friendly acidophilus and bifidus bacteria from growing. The Candida must be eliminated first before the friendly bacteria will grow. An analogy would be trying to plant flowers in a garden of weeds. At this time the fecal toxic metal test is performed to check for the metals referred to in the "Toxic Metal Connection" earlier in this article.
The purpose of phase 3 is to completing eliminate all toxic metals and then to correct any deficiency of vitamins, mineral, amino acids, hormones or fatty acids that exists. Special tests are performed to measure all the nutrients.
The most common mistake in trying to regain energy in one who has Candidiasis is the use of many vitamins and minerals or other exotic supplements intended to boost energy while the Candida still exists in the body. Giving a toxic body dozens of nutrients is to ask for trouble. One can become severely ill if they take many nutrients when they are chronically toxic. The nutrients will cause a mad, uncontrolled release of toxins, which the body was not prepared to release.
The result will be feeling terrible. Candida suffers u sually get bad reactions to vitamin supplements. Toxic metals and hormone imbalances in their own right have been implicated in all the skin problems we originally discussed. At this point in our program the use of vitamins and nutrients can be of tremendous help in allowing the skin to heal correctly.
One does not have to search very far to find that Vitamins have a profound healing effect on our skin! The purpose here is to stimulate the immune system. In order to prevent relapse of Candida or any chronic viral condition, proper immune function must be restored. Supplements to restore the healthy bacteria are take to bring the intestines back into balance so that the yeast cannot overgrow again. Mixing these phases' together results in a patient that either responds slowly, does not respond at all or gets worse.
Most doctors get poor results with candida because the fail to understand the interactions between candida, vitamins, hormones and toxic metals. It is very powerful anti-fungal and is also the most nutritious food on the planet.
It also provided me with stamina and energy while detoxing. It prevented the bad die-off symptoms that occur when killing Candida which made the process much more comfortable. I started out with a very small amount of phytoplankton and built up slowly. In has been shown that candida cannot overgrow in an environment that has sufficient Bioton.
Candex - an enzyme that digests the cell wall of candida so it is eliminated quickly. I did a four day rotation on Dr. I took one herbal formulation for 4 days and then switched to a 2nd herbal formulation which I took that for 4 days, and then I switched to a 3rd which I took it for 4 days, and then I switched to the 4th herb supplement and took it for 4 days.
I would always start out with a very low dose when taking a new herbal formulation for the first time, and I would build up slowly to taking a much higher dose 3 times a day. Once I had built up to a higher dose, then I would start at that dose when I took it a second time. Here are the herbs I used on my rotation for eliminating the systemic candida: I rotated these 4 herbs on a four-day rotation for a weeks:.
I started with one drop of Cat's Claw and built up to 3 drops 3 times a day Lomatium - I started with one drop and built up to one dropper full 3 times a day. Discontinue if rash developes! If I had any of these symptoms I would cut back on the dose I was taking until the symptoms subsided.
I also had to drink a lot of water during the rotation of the herbs to prevent die-off symptoms. I also learned the importance of rotating the probiotics that you take. This way they will be more effective in eliminating the candida.
Here are the probiotics I used on a 7 day rotation. I took one for 7 days and then switched to the 2nd for 7 days, and then switched back to the 1st one for 7 days. I started out with a small amount of the probiotic and slowly built up to capsules that I spread through out the day. I was careful not take the probiotic at the same time as the herbs because it would reduce the potency of the probiotic.
I ate at least three meals a day or six small ones. I balanced my protein intake with green leafy vegetables in at least one generous green salad daily, juicing multiple times a day, eating lots of steamed vegetables.
I would eat steamed brown rice, brown rice pasta, brown rice crackers, and rice bread in small amounts usually one meal a day. Ed Smith, an herbalist and author of the book "Herbal Medicine From the Heart of the Earth," states that burdock encourages the elimination of metabolic waste products from your body and enhances your immune system function. Supplements containing large doses of burdock may cause kidney and lower back discomfort.
Sharol Tilgner, a naturopathic physician and author of the book "Herbal Medicine From the Heart of the Earth," states that queen's root, also known as Stillingia sylvatica, is an alterative and lymphagogue, or a substance that supports the organs of your lymphatic system and stimulates your lymph system's activity. Queen's root, a member of the Spurge family, has been used to help treat a congested lymphatic system, swollen lymph nodes, tonsillitis, laryngitis, croup, mastitis and chronic rheumatism.
Queen's root, notes Tilgner, encourages the secretory activity of your mucous membranes and elimination of metabolic waste products. Queen's root is a perennial plant native to North America, has an acrid taste and possesses stimulating tendencies.
Practitioners of botanical medicine use the fresh root of the plant medicinally. If you are pregnant, cautions Tilgner, avoid taking supplements containing queen's root. Wild indigo, a member of the Legume family, is an herbaceous perennial plant native to North America.
Wild indigo, also known as Baptisia tinctoria, has an acrid and astringent taste, possesses cooling tendencies, and has multiple bushy stems that can grow to a maximum height of 3 feet. The fresh root of the wild indigo plant is used to help improve your lymphatic flow. According to Smith, wild indigo is a stimulating, antiseptic alterative that primarily affects your glandular and lymphatic systems. Tilgner notes that wild indigo is an antimicrobial, immune system modulator and lymphagogue that activates your macrophages and boosts your interleukin-1 production.
Interleukin-1 is a group of three polypeptides that help regulate your body's immune and inflammatory responses. Wild indigo may be helpful in treating lymphatic congestion, tonsillitis, cellulitis, amebic dysentery and septic conditions of the blood.
If you are pregnant, avoid taking supplements containing wild indigo. Video of the Day. Herbs That Promote Lymphatic Drainage.
