Candida Causing Drastic Weight Loss

Posted by Anonymous (Anonymous) on 09/10/2011

Hi Ted! Thinking I have candida 2-3 yrs, now very sick 7 months (Feb/11) lost 20 lbs, I weigh 90 lbs. Can't digest well, went from constipation whole life to bowel movements everyday since 2/11... bad breath, intestines painful, lungs sting, heart occasionally hurts. I have tried many different combo's together. Now going to Univ of Chicago as family is SO worried as am I. I worry candida in lungs now... but professor we r seeing does not believe in yeast overgrowth. I go sometimes no yeast no gluten but family wants me to eat. How can I do this diet and not lose any more weight n get healthy??? I'm taking vitamins, n I'm going to make your ACV drink with BS now. I just need to validate this for my family and don't know how to approach the diet without making my weight n health worse. I'm like a bag of bones and very worried. Thank you and Blessings!

Sorry Anonymous nearly forgot, I also wanted to mention to be careful when starting any of the previous remedies to start off very slowly with doses. Having an overgrowth of candidia (an aggressive) bacterial overgrowth, starting a probiotic including kombucha you may experience what is referred to as die-off, which refers to the good bacteria attaching to a bad bacteria and the escaping out the hatch may keep you in the restroom longer than you'd prefer. By increasing slowly you can purge a lot of those bad bacteria without having to make non-stop trips to the lady's room. Hope this brings relief.

Magnesium chloride 60% and ascorbic acid with baking soda will control your constipation well. The magnesium chloride drops are 10 drops 4 times a day, should be enough to control constipation. Tannic acid 1/4 teaspoon per liter of water will kill yeast overgrowth, and so will sodium molybdate 10 to 20 mg per day for a couple of days only. The hydrogen peroxide 3% one capful per liter of water as a drinking water and ascorbic acid and baking soda 1/4 teaspoon of ascorbic acid and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda will help control yeast overgrowth too. A spray used as air freshener ammonium chloride 5% to 10% in a water and breathe indirectly will prevent yeast and fungus for forming in the lungs. Borax 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon can be mixed into the hydrogen peroxide drinking water to help control fungus also. If anemia condition caused by fungus eating up iron, artemisinin around 500 mg will stop the fungus from uptake of iron, thus limiting their growth.

Hi anonymous, I have to admit I am fairly new to the holistic community however with lots of new research I have found tons of tidbits that may get you started in the right direction. I have found a lot of info on probiotics such as keifer and kombucha tea; the kombucha has been inexpensive and simple to brew from home and tastes much like strong apple juice. The good bacteria in kombucha kills off the bad bacteria in short. Also with ACV and baking soda you can help get your body back into a good PH, which makes your intestines a nice home for good bacteria and bad environment for the bad. I have also read a lot of articles from this site and others on these topics and I would also advise looking into molasses, carrots, beets, aloe, cayenne pepper. Always check with your physician first before any treatment but always trust your intuition first and foremost. I hope the best for you and your health but also please remember to pass on helpful knowledge you learn and try- that's how we heal and grow together as a community.
