Do you suffer from any of the following complaints?

  • eczema
  • psoriasis
  • athletes foot
  • thrush in the mouth
  • genital thrush
  • itchy anus
  • ear discharge with itching
  • tearing of the eyes with a burning sensation
  • runny nose, but don’t have a cold
  • asthma
  • bronchial infections
  • fatigue
  • indigestion
  • regular or severe bloating
  • regular or severe diarrhoea
  • burning stools
  • regular or severe constipation
  • alternating diarrhoea and constipation
  • feelings of fullness after only eating a little
  • muscle weakness
  • cramping
  • loss of sexual desire
  • menstrual regularities
  • mood swings
  • nail infections

These symptoms are often dismissed as part of getting older, or part of life, but it is definitely not. Many of these complaints occur at the extremities of your body, which is a sure indication you have candidiasis. The more you have, the higher the likelihood that you have systemic Candidiasis throughout your body.

This article is given to inform and educate, not to diagnose disease. Use the information with the advice of a qualified professional trained in health.

As part of my mission to rid myself naturally of Prostate Cancer, I came across an exceptional book called ‘Health Living Made Easy’ by K. Steven Whiting – Isbn1-60037-129-9. This is some of my interpretation from his book. I recommend the book highly.

Candida Albicans is a naturally occurring budding yeast bacteria organism which is part of the many gut (intestinal tract) floras which are present in your gut to process your food and drink. Candida is non-friendly bacteria to the gut and is kept under control by other friendly bacteria. There are billions of different types of bacteria living in your intestinal tract, and your immune system keeps the digestive system under control. Under certain conditions, many of your gut floras can be destroyed, and Candida Albicans, which has aggressive growth when not controlled, multiply, overgrow, and get out of control in your body. Eventually, they grow so much, they migrate from the gut and take residence in different parts of the body, growing in size, consuming cells in your body, causing many different types of infection, and creating perfect conditions for cells to become cancerous. Once a woman has Candida overgrowth in the gut, the yeast spores can easily migrate from the anus to the vagina and create thrush. Men have a similar manifestation with Jock Itch.

As the Candida multiplies it travels up the genito-urinary tract and into the blood stream. Now the yeast can take up residence anywhere where moist mucous membranes provide a friendly site. Men giving oral sex to women with thrush inhale the spores into the mouth, sinuses and lungs; and these are common sites for men. Infection is then transmitted through the mouth by kissing and very close proximity, and partners play ‘Ping-Pong’ with infection through intimacy. As the Candida proliferates, it gives off toxins which form free radicals, which can lead to cancer and become life-threatening. The main culprits for promotion of Candida are:

Taking antibiotics, which kill many of your friendly bacteria, allowing the candida to get out of control. Antibiotics are unable to distinguish between good and bad bacteria, killing whatever they come across. Once the natural enemy of Candida is destroyed, the Candida explodes out of control.

Taking Antibiotics, which kill many of your friendly bacteria, allowing the candida to get out of control. Antibiotics are unable to distinguish between good and bad bacteria, killing whatever they come across. Once the natural enemy of Candida is destroyed, the Candida explodes out of control.Sustained use of birth control pills.

Sustained use of many medications.

Overload of sugar intake. (Candida thrives on sugar. The average person today is consuming 100 times more sugar in the processed and refined food they eat, compared to 100 years ago; so Candida has a field-day. )

Eating refined carbohydrates.

Eating processed food.

Knowing this, if you ever have to succumb to antibiotics, after taking them, take 10 high-potency acidophilus capsules, per day, for ten days, immediately following the last antibiotic dose. The higher the content per capsule of the acidophilus capsule, the better.

The second main culprit for out of control Candida, is a prolonged diet of refined, processed and overcooked foods; in other words, dead food which doesn’t contain natural enzymes that are present in fresh raw food.

When Candida becomes systemic, in many parts of the body, it becomes really dangerous and life-threatening.

There are five main progressive symptoms which will indicate this:

  1. Fatigue which slowly increases over time.
  2. Spaciness (feeling out of it, disconnected, having difficulty concentrating.)
  3. Adult onset allergies such as intolerance to smells, chemicals and some foods. Everyday soaps and wash powders and perfumes you used, you now are intolerant to. Severe allergies to things. Clothes give you a rash.
  4. Indigestion, flatulence and bloating.
  5. Mental deterioration takes place: anxiety, depression, violent mood swings, suicide thoughts. Your doctor will tell you to live with it, or prescribe a pill, which will eventually make it worse.

How do you know if you have Candida overgrowth?

This is a self-test that K. Steven Whiting has in his book ‘Health Living made Easy’–
The first part lists the most probable factors which cause Candida to get out of control.

For every ‘yes’ answer, note the number of points given and at the end of both tests, total all points and compare the total with the conclusions given.

Test One

  • Have you taken a general antibiotic drug, even just once, in the last 6 months? 6
  • Have you taken, at any time in your life, antibiotics for respiratory or urinary infections for longer than 2 months, or shorter courses (two weeks) more than three or four times? 35
  • Have you taken specific antibiotics for acne for one month or longer? 35
  • Have you ever suffered from vaginitis or prostatitis or suffered from other problems affecting your reproductive organs? 25
  • Have you been pregnant once? 3
  • Have you been pregnant more than once? 5
  • Have you ever taken steroid medications, such as prednisone or other cortisone-type drugs? 20
  • Does exposure to strong-smelling substances provoke or worsen your symptoms? 6
  • Are your symptoms worse, on damp, mouldy, muggy days, or in damp, mouldy places? 20
  • Have you ever had athlete’s foot, ring worm, jock itch, or any other chronic fungus infections of the skin or nails? 20
  • Does tobacco smoke ‘really’ bother you? 10

Add up the total of the three tests and compare with these results:

Over 180 in women or 140 in men: Yeast connected health problems almost certainly present, likely systemic.
Over 120 in women or 90 in men: Localised Candidiasis is very likely.
Over 60 in women and 40 in men: Yeast related health problems are likely to be at the cause of your symptoms.
Less than 60 in women and 40 in men: Yeast problems are less likely to be at the cause of your problems.

Fungus is one of the Creator’s methods of creating a process for eradicating dead things. Simplistically, cancer is a fungus, which systematically destroys your body because it acts upon dead cells in the body and explodes out of control. Candida is yeast which, when attacked, can morph into fungus or a mould, to avoid being destroyed by the attacker. When it becomes a fungus, it creates conditions to become cancerous. Sugar and animal protein feed candida and cancer.

There are two main ways to get rid of Candida overgrowth:
