To begin the Natural Candida Cure, you need to follow the Six Steps to Health. This six step process may seem like a challenge at times, but it is not hard and it's the quickest way to regain your vibrant health and energy again!
The Six Steps are all meant to be performed at the same time. They are split into steps to make them easier to understand. If you feel overwhelmed, try the treatment one step at a time.
None of the remaining steps in the Natural Candida Cure will work until you remove every one of the Candida causes.
You can completely cure yourself but if the underlying cause is still there, you will get another Candida infection as soon as you stop the treatment. Do not overlook this step!
Sugar is the main food for Candida. By taking away it's food source, you make the fungus weaker and easier to kill.
Starve the Candida with the Candida diet. It is a low carbohydrate diet that dramatically cuts back on the sugar that feeds the Candida.
Although carbohydrates are known to be fuel for the body, this is true only if you do not have a Candida infection. If you have a systemic Candida albicans infection, excess carbs actually suppress energy.
This step is the main difference between the Natural Candida Cure and using Candida medicine. The Natural Candida Cure uses only natural herbal treatments while the Candida medicine uses pharmaceutical medicines.
When using a Natural Candida Cure, you need to rotate the treatment monthly using this schedule:
The reason for this rotation is the Candida are very adaptable and can change to prevent the Natural Cure from killing it.
Rotating the natural anti-fungals each month prevents the Candida from adapting. You should wait at least 90 days before taking the same treatment again.

There are some products that contain a mixture of these antifungals. These can be very powerful and help kill the Candida quicker.
You need to make note of the ingredients so you don't end up taking the same anti-fungal two months in a row during your Natural Candida Cure.
When the Candida are growing rampantly, they produce numerous toxins that cause damage to your body.
step in the Natural Candida Cure is to repair this damage. Use a
powerful free radical scavenger such as Astaxanthin, Purple Defense, Pycnogenol or an Antioxidant Blend to assist in this repair process.
You also need to take a high quality multi-vitamin like Whole Food Multivitamin by Dr. Mercola to help repair this damage. The best multi-vitamins are high in anti-oxidant's, made from whole foods and are in capsule or powder form.
The heat required to make a tablet can damage the vitamins so that they are of no use to your body. The supplement you choose should have close to 1000% of the B vitamins and Vitamin C. Any supplement that only has 100% of each vitamin is useless and should be avoided.
Modern foods are devoid of essential minerals. Taking a mineral supplement helps build up your immune system to fight the Candida.
Your body also needs essential fatty acids in order to heal. There are three types of fatty acids - ALA, DHA and EPA.
Plant based sources contain only ALA which must be converted in the body to DHA. Animal based sources contain both DHA and EPA. Two good sources of DHA and EPA are fish oil and krill oil. I recommend using krill oil because it also contain an antioxidant called astaxanthin.
Vitamin D is another
nutrient that is essential to healing. The majority of people today are
deficient in Vitamin D. The best way to get Vitamin D is through
exposure to the sun. Our skin uses the rays from the sun to manufacture
Most of us work during the day so we are not able to get adequate sun exposure. A fair-skinned Caucasian needs 30 minutes of exposure on half of their body per day in the summer.
In the winter, the
time needed is increased. The darker your skin tone, the more exposure
The artificial form of Vitamin D added to milk and other foods does not have the same beneficial effects as natural Vitamin D. If you cannot get adequate sun exposure, then you need to supplement with a natural Vitamin D product.
A Candida overgrowth also damages your digestion. Your body processes the food but cannot digest the nutrients you need.
Many overweight people are actually malnourished due to digestion issues. Taking digestive enzymes will help you digest the nutrients you need to heal.
The majority of toxins are eliminated
from the body through the bowels. These toxins include dead Candida and
the toxins that Candida produce. You need to try to have three bowel
movements every day during the Natural Candida Cure.
Most people do not include enough fiber in their diet to have that many bowel movements in a day. One way to increase your daily fiber intake is to take a fiber supplement. Here are many good sources of fiber to help stimulate bowel movements and carry out colon waste:
great product that combines five of the fibers listed above is Organic
DetoxFiber by Garden of Life. Each serving provides 1 grams of soluble
and 4 grams of insoluble fiber from organic flax seed, organic pea hull
fiber, organic alfalfa, organic barley and chia.
I also recommend that you perform a colon cleanse while doing the Natural Candida Cure. The Candida can cause your bowel movements to be abnormal. That means a lot of the nutrients you eat are not being digested and not all of the toxins are being cleared from the body.
A colon cleanse will help your bowel movements returned to normal
so that your body can better fight the Candida.
It is important that you replace the healthy bacteria found in the colon that is lost through the process of cleansing the colon. This is discussed in more detail in Step 6.
I used to recommend that you avoid using anything that stimulates peristalsis during the Natural Candida Cure. However through further research I have learned that cascara sagrada is a safe and gentle laxative as long as it is used for no more than 7 days at a time.
It is imperative that you take probiotics to replace the good bacteria
in your intestines. Also stay away from those things that disrupt the
balance, such as antibiotics and the other things listed on the Candida causes page.
Probiotics produce many beneficial chemicals and help process the waste for elimination. They also compete with the Candida for food so they help keep the Candida in the proper balance to prevent another overgrowth.
Another method to replenish your beneficial bacteria is to eat fermented foods. Fermented foods contain beneficial bacteria as well - many billions of good bacteria per spoonful.
If you follow the Six Steps to Health, the Natural Candida Cure will help you regain your strength and vitality in no time.
Take that first step now! There is no better time than the present.
