Systemic Candidiasis

Posted by J (Albuquerque, NM) on 11/22/2007

I found a video on youtube: Which makes systemic candidiasis appear almost uncurable. How can you tell if things like this are real or if it's some money making scheme? Thanks.

LOL. He is as funny as Jackie Gleason! A funny video by someone who don't look serious about what he says. It is easy to tell whether it is a money making scheme or not. A candida yeast infection will be worse if you take more sugar. The video mentioned that a cure through oxygen therapy and yes it will destroy it, but if enough sugar is taken it will be there nevertheless. So a "cure" is not possible as the cause is not eliminate.

The video mentioned about "friendly" versus non-friendly bacteria imbalance, but how nature maintains equilibrium is not just oxygen, but certain nutrients which are quite antifungal, such as sulfur, magnesium, no sugar, and in one research study I have read, alkalinity of the foods we eat was a major factor in maintaining some, if not most of the microfloral balance so that an overgrowth do not occur. Excess of free heavy will also lead to overgrowth, but interestingly antibiotics use can lead to this just the same. Any one who tries to be simplistic and ignore sugar, alkalinity, mineral imbalance can have trouble getting rid of it.

What I do generally, as a basic foundation is to get the alkalinity issue and achieve urinary pH of 7. That means 2 tablespoon of lime juice plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water (at least!) taken twice a day to achieve a normal parameter. An ocean's water averages a pH of 8, and proper salinity, and you hardly see candida also. This is at least a clue. Yeast tends to grow in acid environment and it takes about two weeks for the body to attain sufficient alkalinity necessary to control the yeast. Yeast food is primarily sugar so taken sugar and oral oxygen will hardly work.

A little know information is that candida yeast can be maintained if pH and nutrient in the body is maintained at NORMAL parameters. Alkalinity is primarily one of them, but then so is sufficient sulfur (from Methyl sulfonyl methane), boron (from borax), and magnesium. Other minerals that discourages yeast are molybdenum (there's hardly any in most mineral supplements) and sometimes vitamin B complex.

Since certain amino acids are anti fungal, and the price of individual amino acids are still expensive (at least here in Bangkok), I might take certain nutrient dense food, such as chinese wolfberries 2 tablespoon a day, with plenty of water.

Fungus tend to grow on rancid food as a result of oxidation and spoilage from lack of antioxidants added as a food preservatives. Hence, vitamin E (200 i.u.) and alkaline vitamin C sodium ascorbate (500 mg), and ester C (fat soluble vitamin C), chlorella (500 mg), vitamin D3 (5000 i.u.), vitamin K2 (100 mcg from Japanese Natto) for example will prevent fungal growth.

Fungus is a necessary part in nature's way to decay organic matter by lack of antioxidants. So while in the short-term oxidants or oxygen therapy may work, it is not going to work in the long run. The video mentioned actually was influenced by certain studies that mentioned effectiveness of suppression of yeast candida with the use of chlorine dioxide (one of the oxygen therapies). But even with this, we are hardly discussing the fact that fungus tends to grow best if the antioxidant in a living cell and alkalinity is sufficiently maintained. Certain amino acid may hold the future to yeast candida, but it is not within my reach to do these experiments because of budget problems, but certain rich amino acid foods such as soy amino acids, amino acid supplements and chinese wolfberries may deal with most of the imbalance.

One other thing that fungus tend to grow best from excess antibiotics, besides the fact that antibiotics cause acidosis is that antibiotics cause accumulation of heavy metals. High numbers of heavy metals are prooxidant, as opposed to antioxidant, and reduction of FREE heavy metals can also starve the yeast. A well known Fenton reaction which causes free radicals from metals from free metal iron, which tends to come from foods we eat in iron cookware, metal pipes, and even stainless steel cookware. I have actually measured free metals to be high in most drinking water, and taking some chlorella supplement, a heavy metal chelator, or avoiding tap water, or working near metallic machinery can result in yeast infection and sometimes even lupus. Therefore the other missing key is reduction of free heavy metals, either separately or together taking chlorella, chinese parsley, EDTA, cod liver oil, sodium thiosulfate drops, and many other chelators, pomegranate, green tea (prepared from A GLASS JAR ONLY - do not use metal pots!!!!), including a citrate (from lemon and baking soda)

If I were a con man, I will always try to promote one single theory and avoid the rest. The reason is economics (from mass production and volume sales). I don't need to buy so many supplements in stock and make money not from the cures, but from the analysis and large scale selling of a single product on a single theory. Unfortunately nature requires a balance of several things, pH, salinity, antioxidant, and low glycemic foods.

"...or avoiding tap water, or working near metallic machinery can result in yeast infection and sometimes even lupus". Do you mean DRINKING tap water... can result in yeast infection...?
