How to Get Rid of a Chronic Candida Infection

get rid of a chronic candida infection

Candida is a family of germs.  It enters the body like bacteria, but it’s a more complex organism. Because Candida can prevent the immune system from activating, it can move through the body without detection for years.  A Candida infection is an overgrowth of Candida in the body.

Types of Candida

In the plant kingdom, Candida are decomposers that can break down pesticides, radiation and other toxins. There are over 3,000 types of Candida. 

Yeast is a mobile form of Candida.  It can travel throughout the body and attach to any organ, especially when your immune system is low.

Fungus is the flowering form of Candida.  Once conditions are right, the Candida shoots up a long stem into the air.  This stem forms a bulb at the end.  The end is a spore.  This spore breaks off, flies into the air, and lands in another location.  Candida can also connect to another Candida through a reproductive connection and exchange DNA.  Once DNA is exchanged, both Candida become fungus.   

Candida can adapt to almost any environment and thrive.  If the environment gets too cold, they turn into spores and become dormant.  This dormancy can last for decades. Once the environment is right, they wake up without being damaged by the freeze.  If the environment gets too hot, they can feed on our sweat and bodily secretions.  They don’t need water.  They can get water from the air.  They can turn pesticides and radiation into energy. 

Candida in the body

Candida is found in our foods and is eaten.  Candida becomes activated when it reaches our stomach.  Our stomach acids kill bacteria, but it doesn’t kill Candida.  Candida activates in an acidic environment.  Candida doesn’t attack our stomach unless it’s compromised. 

Do you get acid reflux or heartburn?  A compromised stomach doesn’t make enough stomach acids, so Candida can attack the stomach.  This is why people with acid reflux feel worse when they eat certain foods. 

Some foods feed the Candida. When Candida is fed, it creates toxins, preventing other germs from growing in the environment. The only bacteria that can grow with Candida is H. Pylori bacteria.  Medical doctors have labeled H. Pylori a “bad bacteria.” It is bad because when you have H. Pylori, you also have Candida.

Candida in your intestines

Candida stays with the food you eat and gets pushed into our intestines.  The intestines have a layer of probiotics which creates a physical barrier.  This physical barrier is usually enough to prevent Candida from entering the intestines.  This is why it’s important to create a healthy microbiome (community of microorganisms) in your gut.  The current supplement industry has been giving people a lot of information on probiotics and microbiomes.  Creating a microbiome with probiotics supplement works to prevent Candida infection.

If probiotics aren’t in the intestines when Candida attacks, the Candida goes right into the intestines.  That’s why people get leaky gut, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis and other intestinal problems. 

If you start taking probiotics after the Candida is already in your intestines, it will create a barrier around the intestines that traps the Candida inside. It’s like putting a wall around a lake so other cars can’t drive into a lake. It doesn’t help the car that has already gone into the lake.

Treating candida

Before the 1970s, doctors were taught in medical schools about yeast, candida and fungus.  Medical textbooks showed how to find and diagnose Candida infections.  They were using herbs and homeopathy to treat Candida. These days, they prescribe pills and intravenous drugs. The treatment can sometimes get rid of the Candida, but it usually comes back – even worse.

The way you treat Candida is to train your immune system to attack it.  Your immune system must learn how to take apart every defense system Candida has created in your body. 

Remember, after Candida enters the body, it produces toxins to prevent detection. These toxins also act to suppress your immune system.  So your immune system has to learn to recognize these toxins and ignore them. 

Candida also has a shield made of carbs and proteins.  Your immune system must learn how to recognize this shield and attack it.  Candida will produce mucus once the shield is broken.  Your immune system has to be able to break down the mucus and continue to attack.

Candida and Chinese medicine

Chinese medicine has been used for thousands of years to treat health problems like Candida infections. It is a holistic approach to healing. Chinese medicinal herbs can help detox your body and train your immune system to eliminate the Candida once and for all.  No pills, no IVs. Just natural herbal remedies that effectively address the infection.

Changing your diet and taking supplements may be a solution for mild bouts of Candida. But If your Candida infection is chronic, you will need to get rid of the toxins in your body before you can eliminate the infection.

Body toxins cause inflammation. When there is toxic inflammation in the lymph system, it prevents the Candida from moving through and out of the body.  A detox using the right medicinal herbs will clear out the toxins and open a path for Candida elimination.

Because everyone’s body is different, the detox needs to be tailored to your specific health needs. Buying detox products off the shelf will not effectively address the problem.

If you have a Candida infection and would like to know more about the detox and how it works, call us today at (213) 999 – 5577 or schedule a free consultation with Dr. Kwang.
