Candida Support System
Do you have chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, sinusitis or spastic colon? You may have overgrowth of yeast or Candida. Though poorly understood by most physicians, treating this underlying infection can have profound health benefits!
There are no definitive tests for yeast overgrowth that will distinguish excessive yeast overgrowth from normal yeast growth in the body. However, if you have ANY of the following conditions you should be thinking Candida:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or fibromyalgia
- Chronic nasal congestion or sinusitis
- Leaky Gut Syndrome, IBS, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis
- Eczema or Atopic Dermatitis
- Interstitial Cystitis
- Been on recurrent or long term antibiotics
- Intermittent painful sores in the mouth (not cold sores on the outer lips)
- Mercury amalgam fillings in your teeth
- Have received vaccinations
Candida is a fungus, a form of yeast, and we normally live with small amounts of it in our mouth and intestines to aid in digestion and absorption of nutrients. But when this fungus is overproduced, it can cause toxicity and many health problems, including skin infections, mood swings, allergies, and even difficulty concentrating. It has also been linked to more severe diseases like cancer.
Candida is associated with craving simple carbs (white foods–pasta, bread, potatoes, rice, and all sugars) which feed the yeast. Candida develops for many reasons. Basically, it attempts to create balance in the gut, generally due to exposure of antibiotics, food preservatives, heavy metal toxins, and sterile foods.
Our gut, which is 80-85% of our immune system, has 500-1000 different types of microbials. Preservatives and sterile “pasteurized” foods provide anti-microbials and offer no microbials to recolonize the gut’s supply. Without balanced gut microbials, the immune system is impaired.
The Hallelujah Diet is designed to address nutritional deficiency and detoxify the body simultaneously, providing the most efficient and effective way to support the body’s self-healing ability. A dietary change is an integral part of The Hallelujah Diet Candida Support System, which includes an additional, customized selection of supplements to support the body’s healing efforts when battling Candida, specifically.
By incorporating a plant-based, primarily raw food diet you will strengthen your immune system, which will empower your body to generate the energy to increase the healthy gut microbials, which will in turn eliminate the prevalence of unhealthy gut microbials. The addition of greater nutrition will support the elimination of the chronic inflammation that seems to accompany many of the diseases linked to Candida.
As you begin to follow The Hallelujah Diet, you will begin to eliminate all sugar, including sugary fruits, gluten, and starchy carbohydrates. Raw, fermented foods will be added after a couple of months and you will begin to slowly adopt an 85% raw, 15% cooked plant-based diet. Fats should be minimal and meats and dairy will be eliminated. The optimal goal is to combine this new approach with plenty of water, exercise, fresh air, rest, and stress management.
