Candida – a lifesaving organism or a dangerous pathogen?
I am glad to see that people talk more about candida issue these days. I see it as underlying cause of so many health issues. It is such small organism, not even taken seriously, but yet so dangerous when becomes a pathogenic fungi from lifesaving yeast culture. This happens for different reasons – vaccines, old tooth fillings, bad diet, overeating sugars and processed foods, stress, etc. The list is quite long.
But generally candida overgrowth is not really considered by doctors as a form of disease. It is rather omitted and overlooked. Well, first of all it is hard to diagnose and requires special tests. I know a great way to test for it is doing microscope blood test on a living drop of blood. It is becoming quite popular in States. I was able to do that in Poland, very close to where we live. On that test you can see blood cells, how are they doing and what is around them. All kinds of parasites and candida fungus too. In my new Book I explained all the details about this test, also by comparing Maya’s results (before/after), explaining the candida process in the body, so you understand why the rules are so important during the healing process.
To anyone who has eczema I highly would recommend doing that test to make sure that you have or have not a candida overgrowth. I personally did not meet anyone who has eczema without having candida and if any of you will test negatively, please write to me. I want to study more.
Back in 2013, when we have tested Maya’s blood for parasites I have heard for the first time about Candida yeast and Candida pathogenic fungi form. Part of eczema symptoms on skin is just the toxic load from this fungal form. Candida is a living creature and just like any other it eats and it releases toxins. This is usually why the flare up is bigger when we start a diet. It puts candida in a survival mode and it is releasing more toxins to just protect itself. It is called the die-off syndrome.
It is good to be aware of that and not worry too much when going through this part of treatment. It could last quite long, depending for how long you had it and how it was treated before. Our Candida was trained very well on many diets and starved as well. It is harder to get a rid of it.
There is an amazing way of stopping candida overgrowth in just few days, by doing a few very simple but important adjustments in the menu. It is a key information in this diet and all the success is based on that. To help with detox and restoration of your digestive system there are many other things necessary to know about fruits and vegetables. How to combine them, what to eat and what not to eat, what to avoid for a little while and what is very harmful. There are few chapters about this in my book, I explained everything in the smallest details for you.
I was battling candida before with so many low sugar diets. THEY ARE ALL WRONG! All of them create a bigger problem, because they starve this organism so it creates survival forms in the system, and it unfortunately makes huge damage to intestine walls. At the end it is not possible to get rid of candida anyway, because we need it in our body. When doing herbal cleanse and not using proper diet, the treatment is only working temporarily. Candida pathogenic form will grow back quickly when diet is incorrect. It is a vicious cycle of killing it, but leaving survival forms, which will let candida grow back quickly due to feeding it with wrong diet. It will damage intestines even more and we are killing it again and it again will grow back and on and on an on.
Low carb diets are a dead end. I have done them, many of them, it was only doing bad things to my kids. I recently found this saying – “When you hit the wall you should turn around” – I was banging my head for way too long before I realized to do the turn, but I’m still glad that I did.
I did not realize how those diets are really dangerous! Brain is starving and the body has no energy on low carb diet. The kids were lacking strength and energy that resulted in their bad moods most of the time. You can see that on our early you tube videos, from beginning of 2014. The videos are in polish language at that time, but the effect is visible there anyway. Here is a link:
So what candida is exactly having to do with issues like eczema or allergy. In my opinion it is actually very possible that it is also connected to asthma, acne, migraine, celiac and many other health issues, even autism, adhd and any autoimmune disorder. All of these patients should first test for candida and treating it may definitely start having the results. Candida overgrowth is damaging intestines creating tiny holes with its leg (visible only in really big enlargement under microscope). Through these holes, tiny particles of food are getting into a bloodstream, as well as toxins. This is a huge load for the body to clean. Liver and kidneys cannot handle it all, so it goes through the skin, our largest organ.
That is what I am doing – keeping my kids body in balance with good easy to digest food, that lets the intestines to heal back. Little baby Troy is a first survivor of Candida, he was able to recover within three weeks and since then he never had symptoms again. He is thriving on fruits and greens, but nibbling a lot of things like nuts, seeds etc. I already let him have a bit of rice here and there, he does not like potatoes though, stemmed veggies sometimes. He never reacted to any of these things, but his intestines were not damaged like Maya’s. He almost never ate gluten, he never had dairy, meat for only short period of time, maybe 3-4 weeks. At the end he chooses smoothie himself and doesn’t want a soup anymore. He has the drive toward raw foods most of us all.
How stress and other factors relate to eczema, as many of you wrote to me, that food is not the only thing. Yes it is not the only thing, but only when condition is there. It was the same with Maya. When her skin was bad it was getting much worse when she was exposed to other stress factors, like: excitement, high temperature, hunger, some clothes, animals, dust, pollen. Everything seem to make it worse, especially during flare ups.
Eczema is making person sensitive to many things, but only because candida overgrowth is there. Eliminating this issue eliminates hypersensitivity to any other allergen.
Sensitivity to foods will clear up however, once their intestines are healed, like I said that before, it will take individual time depending on current condition and being
This is my theory based on my children’s case. I am still observing them and I hope one day I can have a clear picture of this and more helpful information to many of you out there. In my book I explain this connection even better now, there is a chapter about stress and other factors that are connected to eczema.
Since I have put so much time, energy and heart into this I have decided to write a book, a complex guide to help more people at the same time and give them very detailed information about everything they need to know prior to start. Book is written from the heart, with my best intentions of helping you to understand why and what works. It is a guide with all the details to safely use that method, for babies and adults. This book may save you 100’s of dollars you have to spend each year on creams and lotions, doctor’s appointments, treatments, supplements but most importantly it may end your suffering and will give you your life back, that you deserve.
