How To Heal From Candida Overgrowth

Kristina Amelong, CCT, CNC, discusses the causes and symptoms of Candida overgrowth (also known as candidiasis), and outlines steps which can be taken to support the body to heal from yeast infections and other consequences of overgrowth. These steps may include dietary changes, targeted essential oil suppositories, taking a regular probiotic, and/or doing Kristina's enema series protocol to deeply cleanse the colon.


Candida albicans

Your best healing tool when it comes to reclaiming your body from Candida is your overall lifestyle. No single supplement protocol or single activity will bring the body to full health when your immune system has been weakened by candidiasis. In my book, Ten Days to Optimal Health, you will find a multi-step, ten-day program that will help you regain control over your body. By working with your body in ten-day increments, you increase your awareness of how you feel in your body when you feel great, without feeling imprisoned by the changes. You can do anything for ten days, yes? In this way, you will more easily be able to choose foods and activities that bring about healing because you have set yourself a reasonable goal, and you feel better. In addition, you will come to understand what environmental stimuli cause you to feel sick, fatigued, bloated, or to struggle with an active yeast infection. Ten Days to Optimal Health is a clinically proven, easy-to-follow, program. These activities can be completed in the privacy of your own home or with the help of a colon hydrotherapist.


Dietary Support

Ortho Biotic

Ortho Biotic is a carefully assembled cast of probiotic organisms selected to balance your inner ecosystem. Each strain of micro organisms 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 to support the liver while soothing and repairing the intestinal lining which has been 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.


Colon Cleansing

Why cleanse your colon?

  1. Candida is removed with colon cleansing and when Candida is allowed to reside in the colon can destroy it.
  2. All your cells and tissues -- especially your major organ of detoxification, the liver -- rely upon a well-functioning colon so they can cleanse your body of toxins.
  3. The build up of waste in the colon creates the perfect proliferation soil not only Candida overgrowth but also for parasites, bad bacteria and viruses.
  4. Our detoxification pathways have more work to do in today's toxic world than they can possibly keep up with and are essentially blocked. It is likely that you are exposed to well over 100 toxic chemicals each day from food, water, air, home and personal care products.
  5. Research has also shown that high levels of Candida can delay the healing of inflammation, and inflammation further promotes Candida growth, so these two issues get caught up in a vicious cycle. Thus it's important to get both inflammation and Candida overgrowth under control as soon as possible with colon implants and colon cleansing.

Fortunately, your body can heal itself if given the right conditions. Colon cleansing is an essential regular practice when healing from Candida.

How often should I cleanse my colon?

A cleansing program may include enemas, a colon board, or visiting a colon hydrotherapist. All three of these methods of colon cleansing will bring about therapeutic results. The books, DVDs, and downloadable videos available for purchase through this website contain extensive information on colon cleansing.


Throughout history people have been using enemas as a tool to cleanse the colon, as a central tool of preventive medicine. As a health practitioner, I see daily that enemas are an excellent tool for maintenance and restoration of health. Enemas may help prevent and overcome allergies, Candida, and many other illnesses.

Essential Oils

At Optimal Health Network, we have chosen a custom blend of four essential oils, safe for long-term use, that gently heals while killing off the fungal infection. Bergamot, lavender, lemongrass and eucalyptus create a synergistic effect that kills the fungus, eliminates the toxic byproducts, supports the healthy flora, 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 three weeks. Follow up with using these oils twice a week for several months after this three-week period to ensure the infection does not return.

Bergamot breaks down mucus and toxic by-products produced by Candida and assists the body to repair damaged tissue. Of the citrus oils, bergamot is the most aggressive in treating intestinal infection and specifically Candida. Bergamot also is uplifting emotionally and is often used to relieve anxiety, stress and tension.

Lavender regenerates tissue while fighting off fungus. Lavender improves mental functions, balances hormones and reduces inflammation.

Lemongrass feeds healthy flora while regenerating connective tissue and strengthening vascular walls. Lemongrass purifies the lymph system and reduces fluid retention.

Eucalyptus Globulus fights Candida, and other often related intestinal infections, while promoting rapid healing.

The Colon, Immunity, and Healing from Candida

The immune system operates throughout the body, including the colon. Inside of the appendix and the large intestines there are a tremendous amount of immune tissues called lymphoid aggregates. Through these tissues, the colon plays a key role in responding to infection and antigenic challenges. In addition to housing a portion of the immune system, the colon is critical in carrying out activated lymphocytes that have passed through the blood stream and collected in the stool with foreign invaders. What is so important to understand is that whatever these invaders may be, they are still able to pass back into the bloodstream if they are not carried out by the colon quickly. When you are rebalancing your intestinal ecosystem from a Candida albicans overgrowth, you are actually increasing the amount of toxins in your colon and in your digestive tract as the Candida die off. In order to not overwork your liver and to avoid causing your body to go into an even sicker state, you need to continually empty the colon. This means moving out at least two feet of stool every day. For most, regular colon cleansing is needed in order to accomplish this. Additionally, coffee enemas support the body through the die- off of Candida.
