What Is Candida?

Candida albicans

Candida albicans is the specific name for a strain of normally peaceful, yeast-like fungus naturally existing in limited amounts in our digestive tract from our mouth to our rectum. In a biochemically balanced individual, millions of Candida albicans exist. The yeast is kept in check by a properly functioning immune system and plentiful gut bacteria. Candida albicans are actually a harmless parasite, the presence of which, in controlled balance within the body's ecosystem, does not cause any problems. However, if the number of harmonious bacteria is decreased, the immune system is weakened, or your biochemistry is imbalanced, yeast proliferation can easily occur. Consequently, Candida albicans can shift from a yeast form to a mycelia or fungal form and begin invading the entire body. This phenomenon is called candidiasis.

What Is Candidiasis?

Candidiasis is a state of ill health caused by an overgrowth of the Candida organism and contributes to multiple inflammatory conditions.

What Causes Candidiasis in Men and Women?

A history of antibiotic use from conception to present and eating a Western diet high in unhealthy carbohydrates, low in healthy proteins, high in processed foods with sugars, and low in healthy fats causes inflammatory conditions related to an overgrowth of the Candida organism.

How To Tell If You Have Candidiasis

Candida albicans overgrowth symptoms include chronic yeast infections, skin issues, IBS, celiac, sugar cravings, insomnia, multiple chemical sensitivities, and many more. Optimal Health Network offers a Gastrointestinal Health Panel , which tests the levels of Candida as well as an array of other organisms of the microbiome.

Symptoms of yeast infection include:

  • Itching in the affected area that is often severe
  • White, thick, clumpy, and odorless discharge
  • Reddened and irritated tissue

Dietary Support

A key part of overall lifestyle is your diet. Within our Candida Kit, we have included detailed instructions for a therapeutic diet. If you wish to study this diet in more detail, work through my book, Kristina Amelong's Ten Days to Optimal Health.

Ortho Biotic is a carefully assembled cast of probiotic organisms selected to balance your inner ecosystem. Each strain of microorganism has a slightly different profile to maximize the environment for strains already in the gut. By taking therapeutic dosages of Ortho Biotic, you help your body to make its inner ecosystem uninhabitable for Candida.

Mucosagen is a unique formula designed for support of the intestinal lining during times of Candida. Mucosagen is intended to reduce inflammation and support the liver while soothing and repairing the intestinal lining damaged by the Candida albicans. In this way, your body is better able to overcome food allergies, intestinal permeability, parasitic infections, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, and leaky gut syndrome.

Enema Series

The colon is the main organ of elimination of Candida overgrowth. First of all, in an overgrowth state, the colon is often covered with Candida. Second of all, lymphocytes, which carry the toxic Candida organism out of systemic circulation, pass through the bloodstream and collect in the stool. If you do not eliminate these lymphocytes from the colon quickly, they are reabsorbed, putting further strain on your liver and sending your body into an even sicker state (Herxheimer reaction).

Essential Oil Suppositories

Candida is difficult to remove from the body after it becomes a fungal infection. Successful aid to the body requires long-term maintenance and support to restore the body to optimal cellular and digestive health. Therapeutic-grade essential oils are superior in supporting the body to rid itself of a Candida overgrowth because of their ability to cleanse the cells, restore receptor site function, boost immunity, and optimize for your individual healthy gut flora.

In order to remove a Candida overgrowth, we have chosen a Candida blend of four essential oils, safe for long-term use, which gently supports the body while eliminating the fungal infection. Bergamot, lavender, lemongrass, and eucalyptus create a synergistic effect that eliminates the fungus and its toxic byproducts and repairs the colon and other affected tissue. Use of this essential oil blend in the colon will allow for rapid absorption into the bloodstream to carry the healing essential oils throughout the body to eradicate the fungus.

Daily use of these oils is recommended for at least three to four weeks in rotation with our OHN Anti-Inflammatory and Flora Booster Oil Blend. Use these oils at least twice a week for several months after this period to ensure the Candida infection does not return.

These essential oil blends are known to be effective against multiple strains of Candida. Even though the species C. albicans is responsible for the majority of Candida bloodstream infections (candidemia), there is an increasing incidence of infections caused by C. glabrata, C. rugosa, C. parapsilosis, C. tropicalis, and C. dubliniensis.

Dealing With Candida Die-Off Symptoms

People who are healing from Candida may experience certain Candida die-off symptoms such as headaches, nausea, bloating, constipation, aches and pains, skin breakouts, and vaginal infections. To help your body through these symptoms, we recommend using the 3-step enema series. The enema series gives the colon a bath and washes away the toxic byproducts that occur during this healing process.

Here are a few natural remedies for Candida die-off symptoms:
