Candida Crisis

Researchers at Rice University have concluded that over 70% of Americans are afflicted with Candida, also known as, yeast.  This seems like a fairly mild condition; most of us have had a “yeast infection” right? What most Americans don’t realize is that at least 70% of the immune system is located in the gut, and Candida can virtually destroy it. Consequently, the list of side effects of having an overgrowth in Candida are nearly endless. Here’s a shortened version:

Yeah, for real. I’m not even making this up. When you have a Candida infection, and given the statistics, it’s safe for me to say that you probably actually do… your body gets weak. It feels like it’s falling apart.

Have you ever felt that way? I have. Before I did a Candida cleansing regimen, I would constantly be saying, “I just feel like I’m falling apart. I must be getting old.”

Candida Causes

The main cause of Candida, and the reason I’m bringing this up to pregnant and new moms, is antibiotics.  During labor at a hospital, women are routinely given antibiotics.  I’m not suggesting (if you’ve chosen to give birth at a hospital) that you stray from your doctor’s advice, if say, you have Group B Strep. Though, perhaps, once you’ve tested positive, you could try a natural remedy like grapefruit seed extract or virgin coconut oil* on your own at home and then insist that you be retested before you are actually given IV antibiotics during birth. You may be able to eradicate it from your system in just a couple of weeks.

If you must take antibiotics during or after the birth of your child, please, please, please make sure you are actively supplementing with a very good pro-biotic. I’m not even exaggerating here. It will make an enormous difference in your health. Take the pro-biotic with you to the hospital and take it as instructed.

Once you’re home, and your breastfeeding, please do everything you can to avoid antibiotics. If you think you’re getting an infection like mastitis, give yourself just ONE day on Oil of Oregano caplets and treat yourself with compresses and massage and see if you can fix yourself before running to the doctor for antibiotics. Chances are really good it will work better anyway with so many infections becoming resistant to antibiotics.

I would like for the readers of this blog to just consider the possibility that you may be colonized with Candida. Then I’d like you to imagine how different your life could be without it. There are so many Candida cleanses out there if you are interested in getting it out of your system. If you go to your health food store, the attendant will certainly be well-versed in how to help you out, they see it all the time because Candida has become a silent epidemic.

* A very efficient way of getting the crucial ingredients in virgin coconut oil, if you don’t want to take three tablespoons of it a day, is with a supplement like The Ultimate Monolaurin.

    That’s a serious list! I never knew all of that. Is it possible to have it with no symptoms? And since you’re talking about natural products, can we assume it’s safe to use a cleansing product just in case?

    Awesome information. My mom actually had chronic yeast infection for years. Then I introduced her to the probiotics I sell, and within 24 hrs she was all better. It was amazing. She had tried everything out there and nothing seemed to work. She has many of the symptoms above and it has helped he a ton. I will have to tell her about this cleanse. She is overcoming Fibro and Schjrogens, Not sure if I spelled that right. LOL. Any suggestions? She does a ton of stuff for it from natural to Dr reccommended but I thought’d ask since yo are so knowledgable. Man I love that you are here to go to!

  3. No, you wouldn’t have no symptoms. You’d have chronic symptoms.

    It is safe to use any probiotic as well as the link I showed at the bottom. Just start off slow and follow the doses it suggests, so you don’t heal too fast and get som healing sideffects like headache, etc.. Actual Candida Cleanses have herbs in them that could counter with other medicines, so a person on medication should consult with a naturopath doctor.

    Lyn, look into that link I put at the end.

  4. And wow, sorry about those typos, Ayla made me send it before I had finished and proofread it. Haha!

    Anyway, Lyn, if you look into that link at the end, you should be able to read more about it. I know it does help for the fibro, not sure about the other.

  5. .. Candida albicans fungi mark their territories during this population boom by causing any of these sensations: burning, itching, soreness, or tingling. Yeast infections can cause serious, sometimes even fatal, diseases. This is particularly true for sufferers with weakened or underdevelope immune systems, diabetes, the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)….
    Information on yeast infection treatments and preventions are available through online medical journals and medical sites but for highly advanced states of yeast infection it’s always best to consult a physician.
