It should be noted that my remedy is somewhat different from other people's recommendations because I rely a bit more on Tibetan, Traditional Chinese medicine, and my own follow up on urinary sugar information as well as it's effect on the body's pH, new findings in electronic food intolerance testing, and private email feedback from close friends.

A yeast problem is usually a sign of too much sugar and metabolic acidosis. Whether the sugar is honey, molasses or fruits, it's still sugar. However, a small amount of honey maybe o.k. but in some candida problem, all sweets may need to be avoided....except stevia and perhaps xylitol. However, xylitol causes some metabolic acidosis and hence baking soda is needed before taking them. Most polyol sugar can also be used, such as d-mannitol which is a form of sugar from cranberry juice. Bacteria cannot ferment with xylitol, stevia, and perhaps d-mannitol, but xylitol and certan polyol sugars prevent bacteria and fungus from attaching and forming colonies. In general, if sweets is needed, then I think stevia is generally good, I also suspect with proper alkalization first, xylitol also reduces candida too.

Now, back to sugar! The worst sugar in order from worse to bad is ribose sugar, glucose, fructose, and sucrose. Complex carbohydrates is least affected. Artificial sugar is the most dangerous because some chemical sugar degrades into formaldehyde from aspartame, causing metabolic acidosis, which in the end susceptibility and immune systems are down, leading to a yeast infection.

In a given weight loss certain foods triggers our brain to stop eating from feeling satiated, common foods includes fish, whey protein, fish oil and amino acid supplement. Quite often it is always the high protein diet that is the key. Drinking plenty of water is another one. Sometimes people are born with obesity from the vaccination when they were first born. These vaccines that sometimes hospital inject contains monosodium glutamate, which in laboratory studies, are used to create a lifelong obese rats when they are first injected when first born. The MSG attacks and destroys key hypothalamus which controls appetite. Therefore one additional remedy that may help is the amino acid taurine. When people reach a certain age, usually in the mid-30s, the DHEA level for example starts getting lower and the facial features appears more moon face, and causing weight gain in some people as hormones become imbalanced.

As to the condition of yeast infection, most of the problems come from any sweets, including honey. Cinnamon depends on the kind of cinnamon, sometimes it is sold as a cinnamon sugar, where they add sugar to the cinnamon. A real cinnamon should be boiled cinnamon bark.

One key cause of obesity is the sugar the second is the fat, and diet fats will concentrate on glycemic index. The problem about glycemic index is they avoid acid forming foods that can also cause obesity also. Therefore the key is to control sugar and acid forming food. Blood sugar is controlled by many elements, including chromium, vanadium, tungsten and maganeses being the common supplements. The other is the B vitamins, in particular in controlling blood sugar is the thiamine B1, in the form of thiamine mononitrate, B3 niacinamide, and the B6 pyridoxine. Major weight reduction I have noticed are seen from taking DHEA supplements 12-25 mg, but also it is helpful to take taurine 2000 mg, chromium polynicotinate 2000 mcg (more like 2 mg) that I find the most helpful. Glycine along with niacinamide, and glutamine for example taken before sleep also help increase the body's production of growth hormones that lead to weight loss.

Therefore, I would avoid everything that is sweet, including the artificial sweeteners, and certain free radicals from cooking vegetable oils as oily and fatty foods generally blocks hormones function that leads to weight gain. Certain habits such as eating early dinner helps. Some people cheat by taking zinc gluconate 50 mg to cause a loss appetite, although I won't do that unless there is a zinc deficiency.

Generally speaking a candida can occur anywhere of the body and certain areas sometimes indicate which alkalizing remedies that is needed. If urinary pH is acid where it is below 6.5, then baking soda and sodium carbonate is generally helpful on controlling extracellular fluids. If the salivary pH is acid, where it is below 7, then potassium bicarbonate and potassium citrate with some mixture of sodium bicarbonate is generally helpful, but also magnesium since it's is an element in the intracellular fluids.

Candida fungus grows in sugar rich acid medium environment, but also low protein environment and low amino acid environment. In other words when urinary urea levels are below average, improper protein digestion such as lack of bicarbonates can also happen to support candida overgrowth. Certain low minerals of copper, boron, chromium, vanadium, and molybdenum can also cause candida too. However, in my own observations, I found the best point to begin in reducing the candida issue is always the alkalization, lower sugar, and lover fats. This is further helped with higher protein lean food, such as fish and chicken. Inflammation and lowered immunity can further support candida overgrowth. In which case supplementation of fish oil (omega 3 of DHA and EPA) - it shard to make mistake when the statistics are on your side, where most American diets has a 20: 1 omega 6 to omega 3, where an ideal ratio should be 4: 1 or even 1: 1. The other is some
ocassional evening primrose oil, as it contains GLA.

Assuming the alkalization is needed to reduce the candida, at least for me I will start with, assuming the urinary pH is acid, which usually is the case, but it helps a lot of measure it. The remedy that best worked so far is the carbicarb remedy, which is the baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) plus sodium carbonate. It is 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/4 teaspoon of sodium carbonate in 1/2 glass of water, usually taken three times a day. The effects of irritation due to candida can be almost immediately be felt within 30 minutes after taking this remedy. It is my most powerful remedies so far. However most people find getting sodium carbonate hard to find, which is more or less, is called washing soda. However, as reality would have it, a simpler remedy would do if they can't be found, so it is going to be 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in at least 1/2 glass of water taken three times a day.

If on the other hand the saliva pH is acid, which is usually below 7, and if it is below 6.5, it's even worse. This indicates the lack of potassium buffers and magnesium, which is an intracellular fluids. The remedy for that one I used is 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/8 teaspoon of potassium citrate in at least 1/2 glass of water, preferably 1 glass of water as some people cannot drink even one glass of water in some cases. If potassium citrate can't be found, then it's potassium bicarbonate are sufficient. This is taken at only 2 times a day instead of the usually 3 for remedy without the potassium because the body can accept only a limit amount of potassium without disturbing the extracellular fluids that reduce electrical potentials of the cells. Usually within a day or even a couple of hours after taking them, the saliva and urinary pH should change. So the body is fairly responsive. Baking soda or bicarbonates also help digest protein better in converting into urea, which is also anti-candida in its properties.

As to the supplements that were helpful for reducing candida, it is the B3 niacinamide 250-500 mg, B1 thiamine mononitrate 250 mg, drinking some cocoa to increase manganese, and unsugared soy milk were helpful too. Chromium polynicotinate 2000 mcg, and sodium vanadate 1000 mg (I don't think this can be found - but very helpful in weight loss) are the major ones I will be looking into controlling blood sugar, thus starving the candida problems. These were also helpful in weight loss, but some whey protein taken in the morning without sugar or artificial sugar can also help increase protein thus increasing urea as well as amino acid supplements to further increase anti-candida problems. Molybdenum, usually in the form of sodium molybdate at 25 mg were helpful, but I find it difficult for a supplement company to sell these. Finally boron or borax remedies have anti-candida properties, but also helpful in increasing hormone levels, which in turn lead to some weight loss. Now I don't take them everyday, what I like it is it is an essential mineral (boron) and my dose is usually for woman assuming is 1/8 teaspoon of borax dissolved in liter of drinking water taken for about three days out of a week until the condition is gone, which is usually within 2-3 weeks.

Therefore there are many approaches to treating candida. One supplements that I have found important in reduction of candida is the the manganese, in form of manganese sulfate, that is mixed with food or even taken alone - 25 mg taken only a couple of days were extremely helpful in non-responsive candida. While most people wouldn't able to find manganese sulfate easily an suitable substitute is soymilk, which is high in manganese anyway.

In other instances a candida can be initiated by food intolerances from acid forming food. The newer information I have noticed is excessive use of peppermint oil and eating wheat products, as well as mycotoxins found in peanuts can initiate this problem, but especially on high processed food and vegetable oils used in cooking. Therefore it helps that coconut oil, which does not have to be virgin or not, are used in cooking. The coconut oil has low absorption into the body's system such that it the oils does not inferfere with liver in processing as vegetable oils do, causing fatty liver problems.

Finally I have found granulated lecithin 1 tablespoon taken before meal, once or twice a day over the course of a month reduces weight, and also reduces LDL cholesterol too. It reduces fatty liver and allow for better liver detoxification.
