Causes and Recommended Protocols
Do you or anyone you know suffer from any of
the following: asthma, allergies,
headaches, myalgia (achy muscles), fatigue, depression, anxiety, skin
problems, PMS, menstrual problems, frequent yeast infections, chronic
sinusitis, digestive problems, or environmental sensitivity? Then please continue reading.
you display any of these symptoms you could be suffering from an overgrowth
of yeast. Believe it or not more then 75 to 80% of adults suffer from
this yeast overgrowth problem in some form.
Although more often recognized in women, yeast has also become
fairly common in men and children. Some symptoms described by men are jock itch,
and athlete’s foot in children body and/or foot odor are apparent and
specifically for little girls vaginal odor and/or itching can be prevalent.
Recommended Alternative Protocols for Candida/Yeast
Pre-Disposing Factors that have
been known to cause yeast overgrowth:
- Long-term antibiotic use
- Steroid use (prescription, or over the counter anti-inflammatory
known as NSAID‘s,
non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug's)
- Immune dysfunction
- Adrenal Hypofunction
- Excess carbohydrates in the diet
- Gastrointestinal or Digestive dysfunction resulting in inflammation
of the gut and/or bacterial imbalance
Although some people can try to alleviate this problem with diet alone it
could take up to two years to achieve the desired results, and very few
people have that kind of discipline.
It has been my clinical experience that treating yeast
overgrowth with homeopathic, herbs and/or nutritional therapies has been
Yeast being a necessary part of our digestive
system is kept in check by the immune system and the other bacterial flora.
In addition Yeast is Nature’s recycler; when we die it is no longer
kept within acceptable levels by the immune system and is able to mutate
into a fungal form that then begins decomposing our tissue.
If the immune system is compromised in anyway (see above list) the
yeast is no longer kept in check and an overgrowth occurs.
This overgrowth will cause an imbalance in the gut and, the yeast
begins to mutate into a mycelized fungus (filaments that radiate from the
center), which, works its way out of the intestinal tract, where upon it
is free to travel and feed on any organ it chooses if gone undetected or
untreated. The Candida merely begins doing its job prematurely
(decomposing tissue) and, as you might suspect, disease, being opportunistic,
will attack tissue that can no longer protect itself.
A good analogy is moldy bread.
You see mold devouring the bread and if left long enough you would
have nothing but blue dust. This is similar to what Candida can do, when
gone unrecognized, or misdiagnosed
Candida is not an infection but a mutation of naturally
occurring yeast, which is why treating it naturally, and supporting the
immune system, is the best approach; and making sure that the treatment
extends through the incubation period.
Candida/Yeast can also be sexually transmitted from one partner
to the next, if the candida is active in the reproductive organs (vaginal
infections, vaginal itching, jock itch or a prickly/itchy penis head).
Men transmit candida in the head of the penis and women through the
vaginal canal. With men all that needs to be done is to wash
thoroughly before intercourse, however, with women a condom is the safest
way to prevent transmission to your partner.
Patients that have the fastest results begin by eliminating
foods like dairy and all grains (except rice), refined carbohydrates, caffeine,
and processed food. (The rule here is if it sits on a shelf it’s processed.)
All forms of sugar should be avoided!
A comprehensive diet and instructions should come with any Candida/Yeast
Protocol from your licensed alternative care "practioner".
(All protocols come with recommended
diet and eating alternatives)
First phase of the recommended
protocol is for 4 weeks:
ADP 2 tablets taken 4 times daily the last dose is
at bedtime; take until both bottles are empty*
Emulsified extract of oregano in a sustained release form.
Useful in toxic bowel syndrome, parasites, candida and other fungal/yeast
problems of the bowel and GI tract. Also
helps with upper respiratory bacterial or viral infections as well as
most chronic/acute sinusitis.
*First test your tolerance for the ADP protocol by taking 1 tablet with
each meal and one at bedtime the first day.
If there are no side effects then continue with the recommended
Next phase is for 8 weeks:
ADP 1 tablet taken 4 times
daily with the last dose at bedtime
*Zymex 2 taken 3 times a day
with meals for the first month then if progress is good this will be reduced
to 2 tablets 2 times daily with meals.
GI tract acidification, creates an environment in which the yeast cannot
survive. The enzymes also digest the yeast bacteria.
The incubation period for any yeast overgrowth is 12 weeks, so it
is important to continue treatment for this length of time.
*Cal-Amo 1 taken 3 times daily,
taken with meals
.An acid salt that acidifies the lymph system.
Yeast and/or infections cannot survive in an acid environment.
*Spanish Black Radish 1 taken
3 times a day away from food
.(Taken with a full glass of water)
Purges the body of the pus, infection and waste that the
yeast, or infections produce as it dies.
Lactozyme 3 tablets after
Replenishes bowel flora lost due to overgrowth imbalance.
*Some of the above products are not available
for purchase on the Products page but you can order them by calling the Wellness Center at (800) 276-3409.
