Cancer starts out as an overgrowth of Candida Albicans...

  1. When you probe cancer cells within the human body, they appear white in color and uneven in texture just like yeast.
  2. Both cancer and Candida feed on sugar.
  3. Both grow and reproduce only in anaerobic environments. 
  4. Both need an acidic environment to survive.
Every person lives in a virtual sea of microorganisms, (bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc.). These microbes can reside in the throat, mouth, nose, intestinal tract, almost anywhere; they are as much a part of our bodies as the food we eat. Usually, these microorganisms do not cause illness, unless our resistance becomes lowered.

The job of Candida albicans is to recognize and destroy harmful bacteria: Without it, we would be defenseless against many pathogenic bacteria. In a healthy person, Candida albicans numbers in the millions and is controlled by a properly-functioning immune system and "friendly" bacteria. However, if the number of friendly bacteria is decreased, the immune system is weakened, or other conditions for yeast proliferation occur (diet high in sugar, improper pH in the digestive system) Candida albicans will shift from yeast form to mycelial fungal form and start to invade the body.  When the yeast turns fungal, it grows roots and spread itself and toxins through the bloodstream.

STRESS depresses the immune system and functions, allowing this fungal overgrowth to proliferate. It wont become cancer overnight, but depending on the level of toxicity in the environment and foods and drugs you use, depends on whether it will form into cancer. The immune system may concurrently be also adversely affected by poor nutrition, heavy exposure to molds in the air, as well as an increasing number of chemicals in our food, water and air, including petrochemicals, formaldehyde, perfumes, cleaning fluids, insecticides, tobacco and other indoor and outdoor pollutants.

Over 100 years ago, a Candida infection was very uncommon. It was uncommon because, during that era, people ate foods that were fresh and alive with energy. People were not exposed to the antibiotics, fast foods and processed foods that are high in sugar and corn syrup content which includes sugar alcohols. They were not open to the elements of excessive pesticides, herbicides, genetic modifications and other toxic materials. Most of the foods produced for consumption today are 50 percent away from its original, natural state.

Initially the signs will show near the sights of the original yeast colonies. Most often the first signs are seen in conditions such as nasal congestion and discharge, nasal itching, blisters in the mouth, sore or dry throat, abdominal pain, belching, bloating, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, rectal burning or itching, vaginal discharge, vaginal itching or burning, increasingly worsening symptoms of PMS, prostatitis, impotence, frequent urination, burning on urination, bladder infections. But, if the immune system remains weak long enough, candida can spread to all parts of the body causing an additional plethora of problems such as fatigue, drowsiness, uncoordination, lack of concentration, mood swings, dizziness, bad breath, coughing, wheezing, arthritis, failing vision, spots in front of the eyes, ear pain, deafness, burning or tearing eyes, muscle aches, depression, irritability, sweet cravings, increasing food and chemical sensitivities, numbness and tingling, cold hands and feet, asthma, hay fever, multiple allergies, hives and rashes, eczema, psoriasis, lymphatic swelling, difficult PMS, night sweats, chest and joint pain, memory loss, blurred vision, intense, random headaches, intermittent vertigo, insomnia, sneezing fits, and increased food allergies are also fairly common. A person tends to get extremely sensitive to damp, mildewy environments and, sometimes, to extreme humidity as well as perfumes, colognes, and smoke. Since candida can infiltrate the urinary tract, acute kidney infections, cystitis, and prostatitis are possible, chronic fungal infections like athlete's foot, ringworm and fingernail/ toenail infections.

Eating foods that are processed and very high in sugar which includes sugar alcohols and corn syrup content on a daily basis will feed and encourage the Candida yeast fungi to grow in the body. When these types of foods are eaten on a daily basis, it creates an excessively acidic environment in the body causing the Candida albican yeast to produce a substance referred to as mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are toxins that are actually the fecal waste of the Candida albicans. The mycotoxins travel into the cells of the body, the blood and lymph fluids which are located all over the human body. When the immune system is weakened due to the overgrowth of Candida, it can not function as it should which results in excessive growth of bacteria and cancer cells.

There is a very quick diagnostic tool to check for Candida, called "The Spittle Test" (Don't let the capitals fool you into respectability—it's a little gross.) it's not easy to acquire lab tests, etc. that will lead to a Candida "diagnosis". The following test, however, is pretty easy, and pretty conclusive:
(Although this test can be done—with success—at any different time of the day, morning will be the most indicative.)
First thing upon arising in the morning, (even before clearing your mouth), spit into a glass of water. If your spit remains floating, in a nice, cohesive "blob", you're probably pretty much Candida free. However, if after a moment, your spit begins to develop long strand like tendrils that dissolve down into the water, or if your spit spreads out over the surface of the water, you probably have a Candida condition. (Taken from a previous article to read more click here > > > )  .

Eat your greens, fruits, nuts and seeds from clean sources... (organic) chlorophyll-rich foods, like leafy green vegetables and alfalfa, also promote acidophilus growth and discourage yeast reproduction. Drink plenty of water throughout the day. The key to conquering candida is in cleaning up the digestive system, the ultimate source of the problem. In general, one must avoid constipation at all costs so high water (4-5 glasses a day) and adequate fiber intake is recommended. Drinking lots of water will also help flush the dead yeast cells out of your system as you progress with your treatment. If diarrhea is a problem, psyllium or yellow dock herb, both available in capsule form, will tighten the colon. These two herbs are also effective for constipation they are bowel regulators. Some exercise at least every other day. Find moments of the day to practice breathing exercises, giving you time to reflect on what is, and what needs to be done for you to continue a happy life. Stress, like everything we do, is a pattern... break the pattern, break the habit, live anew.

Take a yeast-free multi-vitamin, vitamin C (1000 milligrams 4 times daily is effective) which stimulates adrenaline and is essential to immune processes, 100 micrograms selenium, 400 IU dry Vitamin E (It has been noted that dry vitamin E has a better absorption rate than oil capsule forms of vitamin E.) and extra beta carotene daily. These should improve the body's immune system. Take lactobacilus acidophilus and bifidobacteria in recommended quantities to repopulate the intestines with good bacteria.

Caprylic acid is a natural substance, a fatty acid, naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oil.  Caprylic Acid supports healthy digestion through its ability to promote a healthy balance of intestinal flora. It is totally lethal to candida . It is not known to produce the sensitivity side-effects of the nystatin drugs.

Grape Seed Extract Concentrate  .

Gamma-Linoleic Acid (GLA) is an essential fatty acid (EFA) which is often extracted from evening primrose flowers. It is also found in cold-pressed oils such as olive, flax, sesame and borage seed oils. Increasing dietary GLA helps prevent candida from becoming systemically invasive. GLA is also known to have other beneficial effects on immune regulation. Other therapeutic EFA's are found in hemp, black current and billberry and in trace amounts in nuts and seeds, avocados and coconuts. One source says that olive oil keeps yeast from converting to a fungus.

QUERCITIN, an extract of grapfruit seed, has also been shown to be of particular value.
Candida therapy starts with eliminating sugars from the diet, killing the fungus with various remedies, cleaning the intestinal walls, rebuilding the intestinal walls and re balancing intestinal flora. As with any disease, candida healing also begins with an honest examination of one's emotional, mental and spiritual health.
Following is a list of various herbs and drugs which kill yeast/fungi.

Tea tree oil A remedy for many mucosal fungal infections. The oil is used internally for thrush and esophagus and externally for fungal skin and nail bed infections. Tea tree oil and Grapefruit seed extract may be used for the external treatment of candida-related skin conditions by putting 2-3 drops of each in a lotion or salve and spreading it over the affected area.

Oregano extract is considered more potent and less harmful than nystatin to eradicate yeast . It is also considered to be more powerful and less toxic in killing staph infection.

Pau D'arco  known to have potent antifungal properties. This substance has immune-stimulating and anti-tumor activity. It can be taken in many forms including teas.

Garlic is one of the most potent antimicrobial agents. It was used by Albert Schweitzer to treat amebic dysentery and by Louis Pasteur as an antibacterial. It has been shown to be effective against all but two of 26 strains of candida albicans. The March 1985 issue of Scientific American reported that garlic was effective against 200 varieties of pathogenic fungi. Garlic is one of the richest sources of the element germanium, a potent inducer of interferon and effective against certain cancers by modulating the immune response. Parsley and fennel can be taken concomitantly to offset the strong odor associated with its use.

Propolis is a bee-harvested tree resin that is a strong antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral that can be used topically and internally.

Neem  is an bitter tonic, fever reducer, alterative, anthelmintic and antiseptic. Neem is is 'one of the most powerful blood-purifiers and detoxifiers in Ayurvedic usage. It cools the fever and clears the toxins involved in most inflammatory skin diseases or those found in ulcerated mucous membranes.' CAUTION: Not to be used with severe fatigue or emaciation.

Golden Seal  is 'effective in all digestive problems from peptic ulcers to colitis due to its tonic effects on the mucous membranes. It is a powerful antimicrobial improving all mucous conditions, especially those of the sinuses.

Echinacea (echinacea angustifolia and purpurea) is alterative, immune stimulating and antiseptic. Scientific research indicates antibiotic activity, cortisone-like activity, promotion of wound healing, production of systemic interferon and stimulation of T-cell lymphocytes.
Imagine a worst case scenario when the fungi have actually rooted into the person's intestinal walls, from which they continue to re-inoculate the fecal stream. It's not enough to reseed briefly or sparsely this 'continuous-flow culture' which is living and growing inside the gut, but one must maintain and support the desired ecology sufficiently long enough for the intestinal epithelial cells to shed, slough off, turn over - so that the fungi buried within them will be expelled. While this is going on, the contents of the fecal stream will continue to be reinfected in an on-going manner; thus, antifungal therapy must continue sufficiently long enough to guard against relapse, in order to allow the membranes of the GI tract to heal."
The program to overcome candida takes time and patience
A complete parasite cleanse - in order to be thorough. Parasite killing herbs also kill candida.
Dr. Christopher has an Intestinal Sweep formula- finally a safe and effective cleansing system, to aid the body in eliminating yeast.

A liver flush to open up the liver and gall bladder ducts.
Opening them allows any parasites including candida to be eliminated more easily. The free flow of bile from the liver/gall bladder will also prevent new parasite infection. Hannah Kroeger's Wormwood Combination,  and Rascal for parasite and liver cleansing.

Liver & Gallbladder Formula by Dr. Christopher

Black Walnut is used to rid the body of parasites such as tape worms and as an anti-fungal for candida yeast, ringworm, athlete's foot and thrush.
Parasite Formula from Grandma's Herbs- Parasites and worms can lead to a multitude of health problems, from diarrhea and fatigue to many other life-threatening diseases. Worldwide worms outrank cancer as man’s deadliest enemy!
Cleansing Agents

seed husks powdered and bentonite clear waste from the GI tract.

Daily Castor oil packs help break up waste in the intestines and liver.

MSM is supposed to address parasites as well as candida. Yeast also lives IN mucus and MSM is a good mucus stripper.
Vitamins & Minerals

Biotin is a B vitamin which is essential for the metabolism of fats and proteins. It is believed to play some role in preventing candida from converting into its invasive form. Some have found that taking 300 mgs of Biotin three times daily and two teaspoons of green olive oil three times a day prevents the conversion of yeast to fungal form. At least six months are required to get a good result.

Antioxidants such as Vitamin E, A, balanced B, L-Lysine and Pantothenic acid. Vitamins A and C help with the infection resulting from fungal micropunctures made into the intestinal walls.

Copper and zinc work together. Imbalanced copper levels directly tie to Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and candida. Copper serves as a natural antifungal. People with candida, parasites or Epstein-Barr virus commonly have an excess of copper and mercury in their body.

One theory states that a deficiency of ionic calcium (and other alkalizing minerals) is at the root of candida and juvenile diabetes. Acidosis ensues and degenerative disease develops without these minerals. Years ago I read in NW Walker books that cooking calcium-containing foods renders the calcium 'inorganic' and this clogs up the organs, joints and tissues. He advocates foods high in organic sodium like celery and zucchini to help remove the pile-up of inorganic calcium. Rich Anderson of Arise & Shine company feels that organic goat whey is the best source of organic sodium.
On a Candida healing program one needs to purify and strengthen the blood and liver and realize that skin and intestinal/liver conditions are related
Although all the herbs here are not specific anti-inflammatories, they have a beneficial effect directly or indirectly on the candida. It becomes apparent in a candida healing program one needs to purify and strengthen the blood and liver and that skin and intestinal/liver conditions are related. The herbs can be taken orally, rectally, externally, alone or in combination.

Cayenne has a multitude of qualities which help relieve gas, stimulate and tonify the system, purify the blood, tonify tissue (astringent), relieve spasms and kill pathogens. John Christopher, master herbalist, says that cayenne rebuilds the tissue in the stomach and heals stomach and intestinal ulcers. Cayenne also stimulates the peristaltic motion of the intestines and aids in assimilation and elimination.

Marshmallow root  is demulcent, mucilage, nutritive and protective. According to Christopher, marshmallow is high is lime and calcium and the root is high is oxygen and pectin. It is soothing and healing to inflamed intestinal mucous membranes. It has tremendous power to arrest putrefactive or dying tissue.

Slippery Elm bark is demulcent, nutritive, slightly astringent and tonic. The slippery elm mucilage soothes, disperses inflammation, draw out impurities, heals rapidly and greatly strengthens according to Christopher. He goes on to say that it is efficient in absorbing noxious gases and neutralizing any acidity in the stomach. "It's action is so gentle that it can be retained by delicate stomachs when other substances will be rejected."

Comfrey leaf and root is demulcent, cell proliferant, astringent, nutritive, tonic, hemostatic, alterative, vulnerary and mucilage. The herbalist Dr Shook writes that comfrey grows new flesh tissues, stops hemorrhage and heals inflamed tissues remarkably.

Aloe vera will help heal intestinal tissue damage.

Chaparral is listed by Christopher as alterative, tonic and astringent. It is a potent healer to the lymph, cleanses the lower bowel and tones peristalsis in slow muscles. Michael Moore, in Medicinal Plants of the Desert and Canyon West, says it "slows down the rate of bacterial growth and kills them with its antimicrobial activity."

Oregon Grape  is alterative, tonic, hepatic, tonic and laxative. Christopher calls it one of the best blood purifiers and liver stimulants. It promotes digestion, improves absorption, increases one's vitality and strengthens the lymph and skin tissues.

Thyme  is tonic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, carminative, nervine, vulnerary and vermicide. It is beneficial for bowel problems and has a soothing sedative action on the nerves. It is non-toxic like oregano and is used to eliminate all infection, to destroy worms and remove foul odors.

Ginger  is excellent for painful digestion, gas buildup, nausea and intestinal spasms. Ginger is contra-indicated for those who are already hot-natured because of its warming qualities.

Black Currant Seed Oil an Effective Anti- Inflammatory
Essential fatty acids have nothing to do with fat. Think of them more like nutrients. They are called essential because the body must have them and cannot make them itself. Fatty acids perform all kinds of vital functions in the body. They give energy , help maintain body temperature, cushion and protect tissues , and insulate the nerves . Essential fatty acids (EFA) are part of the structure of every cell in your body and are vital for metabolism. They are also the precursors of the all-important short-lived regulating molecules, the prostaglandins. These regulators act by blocking pain. They are needed to dilate blood vessels , lower arterial pressure , metabolize cholesterol , activate T-lymphocytes to boost immunity , protect against platelet aggregation , control abnormal cell proliferation , to name just a few vital functions.

A team of European scientists have discovered that oil pressed from black currant seeds holds the key to healing relief of a variety of ailments ranging from inflammatory disorders to skin disorders and chronic nagging pain. The excitement mounts because the oil represents a breakthrough in the search for a drugless method of soothing unpleasant symptoms such as faulty immune function, stubborn aches and impaired recovery powers to many common and uncommon disorders.

Until now the only other source of GLA (after mother's milk) was that of evening primrose oil. Black currant seed oil contains a more complete range of EFA. In contrast, evening primrose oil contains only one EFA - linoleic acid plus gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Black currant seed oil contains two: linoleic acid and alpha linolenic acid plus GLA the unique steridonic acid. New research shows that black currant seed oil contains double the amount of GLA as evening primrose - 17% vs. 8-9%.

Why is GLA so important? Because it is the source of prostaglandins, the biological regulators that: (1) Regulate the menstrual cycle - including PMS in women. (2) Regulate skin problems such as dry, flaky patches. (3) Assist in regulating the body's immune system . (4) Control every cell and organ in your body on a minute-by-minute basis.

Fatty acids are involved in many bodily functions, such as maintaining body temperature, insulating nerves, cushioning and protecting tissues and creating energy. These essential fatty acids are precursors of prostaglandins, which must be present for functions involved with blood vessels, maintaining arterial pressure already within the normal range, metabolizing dietary cholesterol, activating T-lymphocytes, protecting against platelet aggregation and other functions. Before the discovery of black currant oil, the only other known sources of GLA were mother's milk and evening primrose oil.
