What Is Candida?
Candida albicans is the name of a strain of yeast-like fungus naturally existing in the microflora of most people -- in the digestive tract, from the mouth to the rectum, and also in the vagina. Candida albicans is normally a harmless parasite kept in check by a properly functioning immune system and plentiful beneficial gut bacteria and does not cause any problems. However, if the relative number of beneficial bacteria decreases, the immune system is weakened, or your biochemistry is otherwise imbalanced, yeast proliferation can occur and give rise to a variety of fungal infections, both locally and systemically. This yeast overgrowth phenomenon is called candidiasis.
What Is Candidiasis?
Candidiasis is a state of ill health caused by an overgrowth of the
Candida organism and may contribute to multiple inflammatory conditions.
What Causes Candidiasis in Men and Women?
A history of antibiotic use and
eating a Western diet high in unhealthy carbohydrates, low in healthy proteins,
high in processed foods with sugars, and low in healthy fats can give rise to inflammatory
conditions stemming from an overgrowth of the
Candida organism. Other factors which can contribute to a yeast overgrowth are stress, lack of sleep, hormonal imbalances, and pregnancy.
How To Tell If You Have Candidiasis
Candida albicans overgrowth symptoms may include chronic vaginal yeast infections, oral thrush, skin issues, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), sugar cravings, insomnia, multiple
chemical sensitivity (MCS), and more.
Symptoms of yeast infection include:
- Itching in the affected area that is often severe
- White, thick, clumpy, and odorless discharge
- Reddened and irritated tissue
Our lab partner, DiagnosTechs, offers a
Gastrointestinal Health Panel which tests the levels of Candida as well as an array of other organisms of the microbiome.
Below I offer a set of resources, developed through my clinical interactions with clients, for helping you to overcome yeast infections and candidiasis.

"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." ~ Tanya Y.
"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-step 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." ~ Emma R.
