Excess candida = excess body weight, and mental depression

The most common place that candida overgrowth appears is in your intestines, but it can easily spread throughout your entire body. Excess candida causes a whole host of horrible side effects like:

  • Headaches
  • Excess gas
  • Bloating due to the poor digestion of foods
  • Food cravings
  • Constipation
  • Cramps
  • PMS
  • Allergies
  • Weight gain
  • The inability to lose weight even on a good diet
  • Yeast infection
  • Acne
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Stress
and so much more...

But there's are ways that you can help your body to fight off and clean out much of this matter.

First and foremost, you should clean out your digestive system with a thorough vegetable juice cleanse. When cleansing to make your digestive system healthy again, you should follow a juice cleanse for at least 10 days (up to 30 days).

Your lifestyle may make it difficult for you to just consume freshly squeezed vegetable juice all day long - but you can get by simply by adding 2 or 3 fresh vegetable juices to each day, and eating normal for the rest of the day. Explicit guidelines for creating a great juice cleanse can be found on the Living Health - Weight Loss Audio Program.

After you've cleansed your body, follow these guidelines:

(1) Avoid added sugars (including fructose, honey, molasses, fruit-juice sweeteners, etc.) and all sugar-sweet foods and snacks, including cakes, cookies, candies, desserts, sodas, fruit-juice and ice-cream, even if they're made with sugar-substitutes like saccharine or aspartame (these substances may cause problems for some people who are allergic or sensitive to them). Stevia extract, which is a natural sweetener, is fine. If you can cut out sugars for 3 days, their 'spell' will be broken and you will be able to resist them quite easily.

(2) Avoid white-starch foods, like white bread, cakes, cookies, white pasta, white rice, potatoes, and all refined flours, etc. Whole-grain flour, in moderation, is acceptable, unless you are a 'carbohydrate addict'; also whole-grain brown or wild rice, whole-grain pasta (usually available in the deli section of supermarkets), etc.

(3) Avoid all dairy products, except eggs.

(4) Increase your intake of essential oils, esp. omega-3 oils, which are very lacking in the western world's diet. These include: Fish oils, Flax-seed, borage and evening primrose oils. One tablespoon or three capsules of any of these, twice daily is the norm. Some of these oils can be used as salad-dressing, instead of olive or canola oil, or on whole-grain breads instead of butter.

(5) Add Acidophilus (or Primadophilus), to your diet, after breakfast and after supper daily.

These 5 tips along with a healthy diet like that laid out in The Living Health Audio Program should do the trick in helping you clean out any candida overgrowth
