What is Candidiasis? - Candida Overview
What Is Candida?
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
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.

Candidiasis is a state of ill health caused by an overgrowth of the

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.

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). For these reasons, the daily
enema series and a rotation of our OHN Candida Essential Oil Blend with our OHN Anti-Inflammatory and Flora Booster Oil Blend can
be a core part of healing from Candida overgrowth.

"After years of working on this, I just want people to know that you can't starve Candida out with diet alone. You have to get the Candida under control, in balance with the healthy flora, through the use of antifungal and flora-boosting essential oils. I can't recommend your Candida program enough because it really covers all the bases. And, you have been awesome to work with."
"I didn't believe Candida was a big issue for me. I've been on antibiotics for about two years and the results of the enemas and detoxifying my body have clearly shown me that Candida was one of the main issues. I truly can't believe how I'm feeling this morning. This protocol of the three-enema series leaves no area unaddressed. Healing my gut is the first and most important step to beginning to get well; I can feel how important and integral it is to wellness from just the past week or so. It makes me want to eat clean, and that's saying a lot, as it has always seemed a chore in the past, but when your brain feels cleaner and clearer, things aren't as much of an 'issue' anymore."
