Candida and the Parasite Connection
In order for the body to heal, it must first be able to absorb all the nutrients and to improve the digestive system and enhance the immune system. There are many reasons why the digestive system might not be functioning properly.
Many people have experienced an increase in digestive problems over the years. The most common reasons are – a diet deficient in proper nutrients, impure water, coupled with the overuse of antibiotics, oral contraceptives, corticosteroid drugs, and other medications.
We are seeing more people suffering from Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, leaky gut, diverticulitis, celiac disease, indigestion, reflux, allergies, asthma and constipation. Parasites and other harmful organisms that affect the immune system are on the increase. The most common of these is Candida Albicans. All this shows the need for better nutrition through a healthy diet.
It is crucial to increase and maintain bacteria levels, eliminate any yeast infection and parasite infestation, thus help rid the body of cancer.
Plenty of organic raw foods will keep the bowel free from constipation. The body has to balance bacteria levels, combat yeast infection and eliminate parasites. People do not realize that the human body is a perfect place for parasites. They accept that children become infested with parasites and will give their children a dose of medication. But once past the toddler stage, parasite prevention and eradication is stopped. It is quite unusual for an adult to be treated.
Attention to parasite infestation is no less important for adults. Follow the protocols described below to rid your body of parasites. However, you will also need to find out if you have candida infection.
Candida, or Candida Albicans, to give it its full name, is an overgrowth of a single cell yeast-like fungus. This fungus is referred to in Eastern cultures as a dampness affecting various parts of the body most commonly the gastrointestinal tract and the vagina. The digestive system and metabolism is compromised by the often prolific growth in the body by this yeast. Those having a weakened immune system almost always have high levels of candida, especially those suffering from advanced cancer, HIV and AIDS. In extreme cases the infection will travel through the bloodstream and affect every organ of the body.
People suffering from candida become very sensitive to certain foods. They find some smells intolerable, especially petrol, cigarettes, exhaust fumes, perfumes, cleaning products, and rubber.
Test yourself for candida without a visit to the doctor or the naturopath. Proceed as follows:
1. Place a glass of water on your bedside table or on your bathroom cabinet before going to bed.
2. First thing in the morning, spit into the water. Do not eat or drink anything before this (this is important).
3. Let the saliva sit in the water for about 30 minutes but no more than an hour before testing.
4. Check the water to see if it is clear. If you see strands of saliva (like legs) floating in the water or cloudy saliva that has sunk to the bottom of the glass,
or floating in the water, then you have candida.
If you have candida, it will need to be cleared up immediately. The removal of parasites from your system is also imperative if you want to absorb nutrients from your food. For cancer sufferers, it is usually the fluke worm that is the problem.
You will definitely have parasites if you have cancer or candida. Remember:
• The candida yeast feeds off sugar.
• Your body’s pH balance is important for friendly bacteria such as lactobacilli to thrive. These are needed to metabolise sugars properly.
