Candida Treatment Plan

August 20, 2019

Ooh! Elevated Candida antibodies. Look’s like we got ourselves a Candida overgrowth. And in this video I am going to show you how
you can treat Candida overgrowth without the use of pharmaceuticals. Quite effectively actually. But before we get started I ask that you please
hit the subscribe button down below and click the little bell so that you can stay notified
of all the fantastic content I put out on a weekly basis. So let’s get started. Candida albicans is one of the species of
Candida, there’s several different species that normally live in and on our bodies. They live on our skin, they live in our eyes,
ears, nose, genitals and in the digestive tract. And they are usually kept in check by other
microorganisms. So, other species of bacteria and other species
of yeast keep the Candida population under control. Under some circumstances, for example, taking
an antibiotic… the antibiotic will kill off a lot of your friendly bacteria and that
allows an opportunity for the yeast species to take over because antibiotics don’t kill
yeast they just kill bacteria. So some of you may have taken an antibiotic
and ended up with a yeast infection which is very common and that’s the reason why. So some of the health problems that can contribute
to a Candida overgrowth include: type 1 and type 2 diabetes because that’s increasing
your blood sugar and these organisms, they love sugar so in addition to diabetes if you
eat a diet that’s high in refined sugars that makes you susceptible to Candida overgrowth. If you take antibiotics, if you’re taking
a birth control pill, if you’re taking medications that suppress your immune system such as medications
we use for autoimmune conditions or chemotherapy drugs those could suppress your immune system. Corticosteroids could suppress your immune
system and make you more susceptible. And HIV and AIDS which decreases your immune
system will make you more susceptible to a Candida overgrowth. Now, there are tests that you can have done
to see if you do in fact have an overgrowth. The first test I’m going to talk about here
is a blood test and it tests your immune system to see if it has been responding to the presence
of candida. So here we can see the first test was an IgG
type of antibody. This type of antibody shows if you have had
a long-term exposure to Candida. This doesn’t necessarily tell you that you
have a current exposure but it tells you that you have been exposed in the past. And if the number on this test is high enough
it could tell you that, yes you do have a current infection too. The next one on here is an IgA antibody. The IgA antibody shows if you have actually
have a current infection and the infection would be in your mucus membranes such as eyes
or ears, nose, throat, anus, genitals, digestive tract. And for this patient here we can see that
they appear to have a current IgA infection going on here. Now the third one is the IgM antibodies and
these also tell you if you have a current infection. So this patient had 2 out of 3 and she had
symptoms so we actually put her on a Candida treatment and it worked for her. The next test here is a stool test and this
shows if the Candida is actually physically present in your body. Now, if you have a stool test done for Candida,
you want to make sure that you’re doing a test that has you collect more than 1 sample,
preferably 3 samples on 3 different occasions because the Candida has a life-cycle and you
may miss it so for example on this patient’s test she had a lot of yeast isolated in the
first test that she took and in the last 2, there were no species of yeast isolated. So if she would have just done one day test
she would have missed this. But they isolated it and we can see there
were 2 different species of Candida isolated so this is a really good test to show the
presence of Candida. There’s several different labs that offer
different testing for Candida overgrowth. The two that I mentioned here I’ll put links
down in the description below so you could see the exact test and if you do need to be
tested that you’ll know which test to ask your doctor to run for you. If you go to your doctor and ask them to test
you for Candida overgrowth and they’re looking at you like a deer in headlights, like they
think you’re crazy then they probably are not a good doctor for you. Fire them and hire a Naturopathic doctor. Now lets talk about the 5 non-pharmaceutical
treatments for Candida overgrowth. Number one is Grapefruit Seed extract. This is one of the most effective Candida
killing agents across the board. Just try to find a reputable brand that is
3rd party tested for impurities because there could be some contamination with Grapefruit
Seed extract. Number 2 is your volatile oils. The one I’m talking about here is Oregano
Oil. This is also a very effective treatment for
most species of Candida. Number 3, you’ve heard about this one. This is garlic. The trick to finding a good garlic supplement
is to find one that will give you the therapeutic effect but won’t make you smell like garlic. Number 4 is Caprylic acid. Now this one is absorbed very rapidly in your
intestines so try to find a brand that is in a time release form so that your absorption
in your digestive tract is slower so that the supplement can spread throughout your
entire digestive tract. Number 5 is berberine containing plants. These include Goldenseal, Barberry, Oregon
Grape, and Goldthread. Of course before taking any of these supplements
you should get started on a Candida diet for at least 2 weeks. If you have a medical condition or you are
taking other medications you should speak with your Naturopathic doctor before starting
this Candida protocol. I hope you enjoyed this video. If you liked it, consider giving it a thumbs

    What about pao d'arco (purple lapacho)? That saved my life many times. Luckily I haven't had those issues in a while.
