Yeast Overgrowth Protocol - 6 Steps to take to combat candida yeast

Step 1: Eliminate yeast-producing foods like starches from rice, potatoes, etc, sugars, gluten and fruits. All of these substances feed candida. In my personal experience this step is a must. Fudging on the candida diet just once can set a person back months in the healing process.

Step 2: Improve digestion. Gastric hydrochloric acid and pancreatic enzymes help keep Candida from overgrowing in the small intestine. Patients on Zantac, Nexium, or other acid-blocking drugs increase their risk for developing yeast overgrowth. Supplement with pancreatic enzymes with each meal. Supplement with betaine hydrochloric acid with each meal. Yeast canít live in an acidic environment.

Step 3: Replace good bacteria, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. bulgaricus, L. catnaforme, L. fermentum, and Bifidobacterium bifidum. These normally inhabit vaginal and gastrointestinal tracts; help digest, absorb, and produce certain nutrients; and keep potentially harmful bacteria and yeast in check. Supplement with probiotics every day. If you are dealing with extremely resistant yeast overgrowth symptoms, you may need continuous probiotic replacement therapy.

Step 4: Reduce liver toxicity - Consider one of our multi-ingredient liver cleanse formulas like The Cleaner that cleanses not only the liver but helps to kill candida yeasts and other harmful organisms, or try this powerful medicinal mushroom to cleanse and rejuvenate the liver.

Step 5: Treat your intestinal permeability - Yeast overgrowth can cause intestinal permeability and contribute to food sensitivities or allergies. Treat leaky gut and yeast overgrowth at the same time. You might consider Caprylex or Leaky Gut to help combat gut inflammation.

Step 6: Use prescription or natural antifungal medicines. Consider taking Essential Therapeutics Yeast Formula, a concentrated, broad-spectrum formula combines specific natural agents useful in supporting a healthy balance of intestinal microflora, thus discouraging the overgrowth of yeast. Sustained-release and pH balanced, this potent formula is readily absorbed into the small and large intestine.
