My Systemic Candida Cleanse Protocol

Read the articles found at: www.health-truth.com which describes the nature of Candida albicans overgrowth and why the steps in this layout are the most effective method of rebalancing the body’s natural bacteria.

DURING ALL PHASES OF THE CLEANSE:

  • Take digestive enzymes right before eating and before bed
  • Drink organic aloe vera gel in water as often as you want
  • Use ground dulse on food instead of salt (if you want)
  • Drink tea made with real ginger root or chew on ginger
  • Drink peppermint tea
  • Unless otherwise stated on bottles, herbs work best on an empty stomach: generally ½ hour before eating & 2 hours after eating.
  • Fiber must be taken with a huge amount of water, and then will only work if you are properly hydrated throughout the day.
  • Drink at least ½ a cup of water every hour of the day. If you drink reverse osmosis or distilled water, add mineral drops.
  • Don’t take multivitamins until stated in later Phases (they will help the yeast & parasites thrive & actually spread the condition in your body).


STEP 1: Preparing the body & weakening the candida, for 4 weeks

  • Eliminate foods that feeds the yeast.
  • Eat 70 - 80% alkaline & 30 - 20% acidic
  • Eat a small meal every 3 hours to keep cortisol in check.
  • Eliminate foods & environmental factors that that destroy the good bacteria that needs to be replace in the colon.
  • Candida & fungus live off of sugar. So to weaken them: starve them. Keep your carbs to less than 150 grams / day. If very active daily (like heavy labor job) go up to 150 grams of carbs a day as needed. But if you can, try to eat only about 50 grams a day. The lower the carbs, the weaker the Candida becomes. Going into ketosis will not help you, so eat above 30 grams.
  • Always eat protein, fat & veggies together.

Mastering the dietary changes for 4 weeks before gettign into the expensive parts of the candida cleanse allows for screw-ups from cravings that most candida sufferers experience. Eventually you will learn to ignore the cravings. It will be better for you if you wait until you are able to complete 4 full weeks of Step 1 flawlessly before moving on.

STEP 2: Cleaning The Colon & Mechanically Removing Candida - 6 weeks to 2 months

If it is medically safe for you to go without food, a fasting colon cleanse is a fast & effective method of removing a lifetime of old fecal colon plaque that is stuck to your intestinal walls (where candida, parasites & bacteria thrive). An effective, simple & common colon cleanse (usually done for 5 - 7 days) is:

  • 1 Tbsp bentonite (hydrated volcanic ash clay) + 1 tsp to 1 Tbsp psyllium seed husks in a large glass of water 5 - 6x a day. Follow with another full glass of water.
  • Drink 5 Liters of water thoughout the day.
  • Two hours after / one hour before the psyllium & bentonite, you can take digestive enzymes (enteric coated pancreatin or serrapeptase are best) and Diatomaceous Earth (name: K-MIN from the Daily company).
  • When comming off the fasting cleanse, eat only raw veggies an leafy green juices (wheat grass, barleygreen, etc) for a whole day.

If you cannot fast, you can clean the colon more slowly by:
3x a day:

  • Take NAG, MSM & digestive enzymes on empty stomach 30 minutes before eating
  • Take Diatomaceous Earth (name: K-MIN from the Daily company) with food
  • Take fiber (preferably ground flax seed mixed with grapefruit fiber and psyllium) + bentonite 30 minutes after eating

PHASE 1: HERBAL KILLING - 2 to 8 months

If you did the fasting colon cleanse switch to the slow colon cleanse routine. If you did the slow colon cleanse, continue that routine as in Phase 0 and add your anti-fungal herbal rotations.
All herbs are to be taken for only 4 days, then move onto the next herb – because like bacteria, fungus/ yeast can become resistant to anti-fungals. If you use combination anti-fungals, make sure that the ingredients are not repeated between your combination capsules.
Use all herbs to the strongest recommended dosage.
Make sure to have them at least 4 times a day, evenly spread out (as you would a prescribed antibiotic).
Pick at least 4 different anti-fungals. You can use just 4 strong ones, but I used many more, in combination with each other on their rotation day: making sure if I used a non-systemic anti-fungal, I paired it up with a systemic one. Ex:
Day 1-4 Goldenseal + olive leaf extract
Day 5-8 Colliod silver + fresh garlic*+ caprillic acid
Day 9-12 Oil of oregano (Oreganol P73) + enteric coated peppermint oil + cloves
Day 13-16 Extra Strength Grapefruit seed extract + Pau d’Arco
Then repeat
* large clove of garlic, chop finely (don’t press!) let sit 5 minutes, then drink down with water

Support supplements taken during Phase I:
Molbdenum (it chelates the mycotoxins excreted by fungus & contaminated foods
Biotin 8 (8000mg: it stops Candida from further changing into the aggressive, fungal form. Make sure it is not derived of yeast)

VAGINAL ANTI-FUNGALS:
If you have ever had vaginal infections, this needs to be a part of your cleanse.
Rotate the same anti-fungal you are taking orally on that day. Here are methods of making suppositories & douching for different anti-fungals:

  • Garlic: douche with 1 tsp Kyolic liquid aged garlic to 2c pure water or wrap a halved garlic clove in cheese cloth, tie it off leaving a tail to pull it out & leave in overnight
  • Grape seed extract: douche with 15 drops in ½ c aloe vera gel
  • Oil of Oregano: Put a one drop in an empty capsule & fill the rest of the way with olive oil or oil of oregano, Puncture a few holes in the capsule with a needle & insert. Or make a suppository by melting coconut oil in a hot water bath, add a drop of oregano, put in something small freeze in freezer. Insert as high as possible at bedtime.
  • Goldenseal – douche with 15 drops in ½ cup pure water- most of the anti-fungals can be used vaginally either by making a suppository, putting it in a capsule with a few pin-holes or by douching in the above manners.
Douches should be at least 2x / day, try for 4 if you can.

Continue with Phase I until your Candida symptoms are about 90% gone. This should take about 6 weeks for a very mild case. For systemic Candida overgrowth, this could take 8 months to a year.

Then moving onto Phase II, overlap the phases for 3 days. DO NOT GAP IN BETWEEN!! The moment you stop having anti-fungals in your blood, the yeast will multiply again.

** remember: feeding the yeast by eating foods you shouldn’t will strengthen the Candida, allowing it to multiply again & it will take longer to kill it


PHASE 2 - MOP-UP KILLING & PARASITES - 3 months
Continue diet, switch to / continue Phase 0 slow colon cleansing meathod & overlap for 3 days with Phase 1
This is a mop up to kill all the resilient fungus & parasites in your system.
Same rules as Phase 1.
Parasite cleanses must be done for 3 months in order to kill off all phases of parasites from egg to reproducing adult.
In the morning & evening on an empty stomach, have:garlic oil, bromelin, pancreatin (enteric coated is best), NAG, MSM, anti-parasital herbs from the parasite cleanse of your choice (I use Dr. Hulda Clark’s program + Para 90 from the AIM company).
One hour later, have your K-MIN & fiber+bentonite.
With Food, take digestive enzyme complex (enteric coated enzymes are best), Betaine Hydrocloride acid (HCL) supplement with pepsin.
Here the way we take anti-fungals is a little different. Take SF-722 by the Thorne Company for 7 days instead of 4 days, and rotate that with whichever 2 other anti-fungals you found to be the strongest acting for you in Phase 1. Take the SF-722 with meals (up to 5 caps each dose), others on an empty stomach as you did in Phase 1.
Continue the Vaginal anti-fungals you found most effective in Phase 1.

PHASE 3 - PROBIOTIC RE-COLONISATION
You need to prepare for your probiotic enema & douche:
- Stop taking bentonite for 14 days before your enema (last 2 rotations).
- Stop taking all anti-fungals that are also natural anti-biotics for the last 7 day rotation (ending on 7 days of SF-722 is a good choice). For maintenance after this point, stick with anti-fungals that are not anti-biotic.
- Stop taking any laxatives, K-min or psyllium for the last 7 day rotation. Use chicory root inulin fiber instead and fresh ground flax seed fiber with meals.
- Do a sweet dairy whey enema 1x / wk for 3 weeks before your probiotic enema to re-acidify your colon (4T of whey to 1 quart of distilled or reverse osmosis water). Probiotics need an acidic colon to survive; fungus & parasites thrive in an alkaline colon. The colon needs to be re-acidified since it will be alkaline from the bentonite.
- make sure that the pro-biotics you’ve bought were in the fridge & are human strain. Only human strain probiotics root & take up permanent residence in the human body.

The ENEMA
Do a sweet dairy whey enema first to eliminate debris. Use this ratio, but increase uniformly if more water is required: 1Tbsp sweet whey with 4 capsules of Kyo-Dophilus + 5 billion count refrigerated human strain probiotics to 2 cups of purified water.
Star on hands & knees, then lay on your right, then on your back, then left side & massage your belly from bottom left in a circle to bottom right while holding in water for at least 10 minutes. Hold for as long as you can. Make sure you release the valve so water starts coming out before you insert the enema tube
**don’t get air into you**

Probiotic douche: 2 Tbsp of pure water to 1 billion count of human strain probiotic.
Douche 2x / day: again, try to hold in the water for as long as possible – lay on slant board for 15 minutes in you can.
Overnight put tiny pin pricks in a probiotic capsule, insert as high as possible into the vagina overnight. Be sure to stay away form all things that will kill or inhibit the probiotics, or you’ll defeat the purpose. Be sure not to drink chlorinated water, take any colon cleansers (herbal laxatives, fiber…), no oxygen therapy, no more parasite killers for 3 months, no anti-biotic drugs.

AFTER ENEMA:CONGRATULATIONS!! You have restored your body’s BACTERIAL BALANCE. NOW YOU JUST HAVE TO MAINTAIN IT. STAY AWAY FROM EVEYTHING THAT HURTS YOUR PROBIOTICS & AVIOD THINGS THAT ENCOURAGE CANDIDA / FUNGAL GROWTH.

KNOW THAT
Candida is communicable from sexual contact & medical staff hands.
Any enema other than a probiotic enema is not good: herbal, oxygen, ozone, bentonite, wheat grass, plain water all = alkaline colon & destroy your good colony.
Be extra careful for the first 6 weeks after your enema – the probiotics still need to try to root & colonize into your intestinal wall for permanent residence. Try to eat mainly soft, easy to digest foods (cooked veggies & grains, easily digested animal protein, healthy fats only).
It will take up to a year for the probiotics to fully root & colonize, so treat your body well.

If you are ever in a situation where you might hurt the probiotics, go back to an anti-fungal diet for 4 weeks, do take human strain probiotics daily during the period & after the intrusion is over, do another probiotic enema and /or douche.

PHASE 4 - RESTORING VITAMIN AND MINERAL BALANCE, REBUILDING THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
1. eliminate all toxic metals - nutrients to reduce copper, support adrenal & thyroid functions & support iron & anemic factors can be used successfully.
2. correct vitamin / mineral, amino acid, hormone & fatty acid deficiencies
Immune function will not come back if we have deficiencies and toxic metals as these problems can suppress the immune system. Involved are: B complex, wheat germ oil, glyconutrients, Germanium (stim. Interferon), Omega-3 oils, Vit. T (in sesame oil), A, B12, B5, magnesium, copper, C, zinc, iron, folic acid, Protein
