What is the BEST Way to Get Rid of Fungal Overgrowth?
Do you have Candida Yeast questions that remain unanswered - about how to get rid of this and other kinds of fungal infections and overgrowth? If so, you are among many of my readers who have such concerns.
My own protracted suffering from fungal issues with seemingly no solution that worked, and finally getting rid of them gives me the knowledge of what works and what doesn't.
My Reader's Candida Yeast Question:
Hello. I'm suffering from candida yeast.
I use holy tea, digestive enzymes,Dr.ohira probiotics,critical care 50billion probiotics,phsyllium,I'm thinking about your probiotics.I'd love your advise oh I use inulation prebiotics.
Hi, and thanks for your Candida Yeast question!
First, I will comment on the products:
What are the BEST Probiotics to get rid of fungal infections?
Since you are taking 3 kinds of probiotics - how can you know which one is working and which may not? Could be confusing for the body, and some strains of probiotics will destroy others. DrOhira's probiotic is based on the organism Enterococcus faecalis - not a good idea at all - this organism can cause serious health problems; too long to go into here - I should write a page on it. I reviewed this product years ago and nixed it because of this.
The ONLY probiotic I ever recommend is Natren (photo above).
Holy Thistle and Blessed Thistle are names sometimes given to the same plant (holy thistle is called both names). Both are very cheaply obtained, since it is the common thistle weed that grows prolifically and people are happy to get rid of since it is lined with sharp needle like spikes. They don't indicate what part of the plant they use.
Thistle is an irritant (which is how it works as a purgative) and for various reasons not advised to be taken long term. It is contraindicated in people with stomach ulcers, which gives you a good idea on its irritant properties.
Marshmallow is a demulcent herb that is also a prolific weed; also very cheap to obtain. Malva sylvestris is a form of the same weed; so there is some duplication in the formula; people like more ingredients, hence the duplication; but both marshmallow and malva are essentially the same.
Persimmon leaf is astringent; said to be good for hemorrhoids; a high-quality rutin supplement is far more effective.
NO purgative herbs are advisable on a regular basis as they can cause dependence. They stimulate peristalsis by irritation, and therefore can disrupt and harm the fine-tuned nerves in the digestive tract. The response of these nerves is necessary to stimulate peristalsis for elimination. Damage to nerves as a result of constant exposure to herbal irritant compounds diminishes their capacity to respond to a stimulus. They lose the ability to initiate the peristalsis (muscular contractions of the intestinal walls that move the solids along).
Therefore, long term use of purgative herbs worsens slow elimination.
Candida Yeast and Toxic Metal Compounds
As to the candida yeast...
...where there is a fungal problem, there is a toxic metals problem; candida yeast are the organism in us that can hold onto more toxic metals, esp. mercury, than any other organism in us can do.
Our bodies grow the yeast in an attempt to survive the heavy metals!
Metal toxins can kill us fast; yeast toxins kill slowly - so the body grows the yeast.
The root of the yeast problem is commonly toxic metals, so one must embark on a balanced program to detox from both at once.
If you were to kill off most of the yeast in your body, the mercury etc. they are holding onto would be released and could make you very sick - this is what they call 'die-off.'
