I used to think of candida as a predator, stealing all the good in my body for itself. When I first started reading about candida overgrowth and how to overcome it, I was overwhelmed by the tortuous diet that would be required. The point of the candida diet is to starve it to death. So I began by consuming only vegetables, meat, fat, almonds, and brown rice. Weight dropped off of my body like I was shedding my winter coat. I don’t recall ever feeling better in the year I was on the candida diet, in fact I felt worse. With many hospital visits and late night google searches something was still missing. On this diet I may have been starving the candida to death but the problem was, I was also starving myself.
My body was covered in tinea versicolor. They say your skin is a mirror into your body which meant I was full of fungus. Candida pokes holes in the gut and food enters the blood stream creating igg mediated reactions also known as sensitivities. These delayed hypersensitivity reactions are so extreme that they can include symptoms such as a rash, backache, cough, hyperactivity, tic’s, numbness, and blurred vision. This list barely touches symptoms that are possibly caused by igg mediated reactions.
Candida, the big bad wolf is actually not so bad, in fact it is meant to live peacefully within our bodies Candida absorbs heavy metals to keep them from entering the blood stream, protecting us as a result. We all know how dangerous heavy metals are, especially mercury. If you have amalgams you probably have candida. Candida is never the cause of illness it is always the side effect. If you have candida then it’s pertinent you search for the true source of your illness.
Dental toxicity, malnutrition, and environmental toxin exposure are just some of the possible causes of illness and candida overgrowth. Whatever it may be vitamin C is the answer. By flushing the digestive tract you will flood your gut with all those cell saving electrons and push pathogens out into the porcelain throne where they cannot harm you anymore.Your gut bacteria will celebrate and start building up their habitat. Keep feeding your healthy bacteria and flushing regularly to push those pathogens out before they can spread.
Candida is not to be destroyed. We want to provide an environment where the candida does not need to spread and cause damage. We want a healthy body where we can live in harmony with it.
It took me three months to fully recover from my delayed hypersensitivity reactions. I watched the candida overgrowth be excreted and balanced. I still, after several years look and feel better with the help of vitamin c. My tinea versicolor has been gone for years. I am no longer on any sort of diet and enjoy every healthy day I have. Stop worrying about crazy diets and pharmaceutical antifungals. Ascorbic acid, vitamin c has the potential to detox and help you heal, you just have to provide your body with enough of it.
