Fungal infection, yeast and Candida

Major cause of disease in modern society.

Candida is nearly an epidemic in our society and is responsible for many of the chronic illness categories we see so frequently.  Candida symptoms are vast and all encompassing and can even incapacitate the individual. 

Most people are unaware that it even exists, because most main stream doctors are uneducated about its impact on our health.  People suffering from this condition often go from doctor to doctor for years and are usually told they are a hypochondriac or that it is stress or a psychiatric problem, before ever discovering the real culprit.

Candida  and fungal Overgrowth

Candida is an overgrowth of yeast throughout the body. However there are many other forms of fungal overgrowth which can afflict our bodies. Fungi are parasitic organisms that absorb our nutrients and produce toxic waste. Our bodies are supposed to have what is called "friendly bacteria" in our colon. They are part of our immune system and act as protective shields for our body – their main function is to keep bad bacteria from entering the body. Fungi have very long, root-like structures called rhizoids that puncture the intestinal lining, leading to a condition called leaky gut syndrome. This creates holes in the digestive tract, allowing many foreign and toxic substances to pass into the bloodstream. When undigested food particles leak through these holes and enter the bloodstream, the body views them as foreign invaders.

The fungal organisms that pass through the blood stream have been found to produce over 70 known toxins that will poison and strain the major organs in the body – including the liver, kidneys, heart, colon, bladder, and central nervous system. The ability to absorb and digest the necessary nutrients from foods eaten is cut in half. Among the toxins produced is acetaldehyde, a poison that is converted by the liver into alcohol. As alcohol builds up in the system, symptoms associated with alcohol intoxication develop. This is why one of the most common symptoms of candida and other fungi is brain fog.

Many people with fungi digest less than 50% of their food, because the yeast overgrowth can create a digestive conflict that robs their bodies of nutrition. It is not surprising that people with fungal overgrowth are constantly hungry. Candida and fungal infections creates chaos in the intestines – traditional doctors have little or no answer to the causes of the resulting diseases and can use only medicines to treat them. All immunological weaknesses and infectious conditions are made worse by the presence of candida throughout the body. Also the foods on which candida thrives are a common part of the typical modern day diet – starchy, sugary, refined flours, and lots of carbohydrates. Sound familiar? Pizza, cookies, cakes, French fries, breads, crackers, cheese, fruit juices, coffee, tea, and alcohol are not only a favourite of your diet, but also of fungi too.

Most holistic experts agree that the alarming number of people who suffer from candida and fungal overgrowth is due to the over-prescribed use of antibiotics, which kills not only the bacteria we want to get rid of, but also the good bacteria in the digestive tract. Other drugs that can upset the balance include anti-inflammatories, cortisone, and birth control pills. Poor diet (too many refined carbohydrates), stress, and nutrient deficiencies can also lead to an imbalance.

Once this hardy organism proliferates in the body, it wreaks havoc in many ways and is the initiator of many common maladies, conditions, syndromes and illnesses in our population.

Some of the most frequent Candida symptoms are:
• abdominal gas and bloating
• headaches

The brain is the organ that is most frequently affected by Candida Symptoms, but it also has profound negative effects on these systems:

  • digestive
  • nervous
  • cardiovascular
  • respiratory
  • reproductive
  • urinary
  • endocrine
  • lymphatic
  • musculoskeletal

Candida symptoms can vary from one person to another and often move back and forth between systems within the same individual.  One day you may experience symptoms in the musculoskeletal system and the next day it could be the digestive system ,etc.

One major (and clearly visible) clinical symptom of candida is a white coating on your tongue. When your microbial balance is normal, your tongue is typically clean and pink. Other common symptoms suggesting candida has gotten the upper hand include:

  • Sudden development of food sensitivities.  
  • Unusual aches and pains that do not appear to have a determinable cause (such as an injury).
  •  Gut problems, such as bloating, constipation or diarrhea
  • Unnatural, persistent fatigue
  • Odd skin issues, such as dry patches
  • Vaginitis (inflammation of the genital area in women)

Causes of Candida and Fungal Overgrowth

.

Do You Have Candida?

Candida is really insidious, tricky yeast and once you have overgrowth it can be extremely difficult to get under control.  It takes a lot of patience, education and persistence.  If you need to talk to someone who understands, you may, like hundreds of my clients, find my diagnostic and treatment approach to be helpful.  I can give you an accurate diagnosis not only of whether you have Candida, but why…after all if we don’t eradicate the underlying cause of Candida it will keep recurring.   I will be able to prescribe exactly the precise diet and supplements you require, lifestyle changes or whatever you may want to talk about.

This BIG Picture approach is what sets us apart From Other doctors.

The Health Transformer Approach


In every case of Candida there is an underlying cause…something individual to each person.   If at one time you didn’t have these symptoms and now you do, obviously something has changed within your body which has led to these issues being produced.  The key is to unlock your root cause, and heal it.   Candida issues are merely a symptom of the underlying cause.   To heal from Candnda we need to address the root cause.   In this centre we specialize in root cause diagnosis of any health condition using our state of the art Meta Health Scan. 

Meta Health Screen

The Meta Health Screen is carried out utilizing the amazing diagnostic ability of Clinical Kinesiology.   It is reliable, accurate and reproducible. The scan will reveal the imbalances unique to your body, and how these are affecting you.   The scan reveals such issues as endogenous bio-toxicity, nutrient imbalances or deficiencies, sub-clinical infections, allergies and food sensitivities.  We also test for organ imbalances, hormone imbalance, and leaky gut.    Any abnormality in these areas will easily be picked up during the Health Screen. We also examine your entire lifestyle, sleep quality and any emotional/psychological contributors to your condition.

5 Step Protocol

1. Detect (In-Depth Evaluation & Advanced Testing)
2. Detox (Heavy Metals, Chemicals, Hydrocarbons, Bleaches, EMF)
3. Eliminate (Pathogens…virus, post virus, bacteria, parasites, fungi)
4. Rebuild (Tissues & Pathways)
5. Rebalance organs (kidneys, liver, etc.)
The 5 Steps to Restoring Health Protocol had been developed following many years of research and experience and utilizes food, nutritional supplements, herbal and energetic formula

In-Depth Consultation regarding your results.

Once this information is gathered we offer you an in-depth consultation to discuss your results, during which we discuss what has been revealed by the scan, where and how this has arisen, and how to remove or transform it, and reboot your system.   I believe it is very important for each person to understand what has been going on in their body, how the condition has developed, and how to unravel and resolve it naturally.   My intention is not just to teach you about your condition, but more importantly to empower you with understanding in order that you are able to take back control of your health.

Individually tailored Treatment Plan

Together we create an individualized tailored treatment plan for you.   This may include some or all of there: a gentle detoxification protocol, dietary changes, specific supplements, life style changes, exercise, etc tailored to your specific needs. In the majority of cases treatment can be implemented by you at home without the need for repeated visits to the centre; however Health Coaching and support is built in to this package to assist you through your treatment.

Supportive Treatments

Once on the prescribed treatment, some clients choose to support their system with other therapies toastiest healing.   This is not essential but will speed up your progress.   These include:

I am delighted to be able to report that the results our client’s achieve with this approach are outstanding and lasting in the vast majority of cases.
