The beginning of this natural candida treatment plan discusses
what has been medically proven to work for treating candida
yeast infections. All references are provided for you to check
on if you choose to do so. Because everything here is medically
proven, all these suggestions will work for everyone, even
though everyone is different with unique physiology and various
underlying problems. If you have yeast problems or candida,
your body is way out of balance and this natural candida
treatment plan will give you the products that work so you can
correct that imbalance.
I just LOVE your website. It has sooo
much needed info. It has been a blessing to me. I was so bad
off before I started your program that I did not want to live
anymore. You have saved my life. I only wish that my family
will listen as well. They need help just like I do. Well that's
all for now.
GOD BLESS YOU,
Thank You!!! that's all.... just THANK
YOU SO MUCH!
Just wanted to take a minute and thank
you so much for enlightening me to what doctors couldn't help
me with, even through thousand dollar tests! I really
appreciate what you are doing to help so many people who would
be needlessly suffering.
May God Bless You Immensely
The Truth About
Half of the stool tests I get back and those
that are sent to me for my opinion, show no candida yeast but
they do show bad bacterial over growth. Further testing using
the Candida Blood Antibody test confirms these results. These
people have been treating themselves for candida, usually for
years, with no success. Why would they have any success when
they don't have candida? So if this is you then I suggest you
get tested. I believe Metametrix's test 2100 is the best with
Blood Antibody a close second with both being rock solid as far
as a correct diagnosis. See the Candida Test page for more
If you do do a stool test and it comes back
showing no yeast but does show bad bacterial over growth, then
I would follow the Treatment for Bad
Bacteria found here.
If the test comes back showing candida or
another yeast, then I would follow the Candida Cure for Systemic
If you are doubtful or not sure about having
candida yeast and you have not gotten tested, then you could do
the Ultimate Colon Cleanse 1 or 2 Pack
for the alloted time for that natural candida treatment. The
Ultimate Cleanse cleanses the body of compacted wastes,
candida yeasts and parasites while helping to strengthen the
intestinal wall and improve digestion. You also get a free
supply of an 8 strain probiotic to boost bacterial colonies
that balance ph in the intestine. Alkalizing and removing
acidity creates an environment that is unfriendly to foreign
pathogens and promotes good bacterial growth, which keeps
these pathogens under control.
At the same time you should eliminate dairy, gluten
(grains), soy, yeast foods, eggs, sugar, trans fats, fructose,
and splenda and aspartame from your diet while you do the
After the end of this natural candida treatment begin to add
in some foods from the list above little by little. Make a note
of how your body reacts to that food. If you discover something
that doesn't agree with you, then it is highly likely that you
have a food allergy to that food and your body is creating IgE
or IgG antibodies to it. From that point on, if you wish to
maintain your health and keep feeling good, don't eat that
This is a very simple natural candida treatment plan, yet
extremely effective. I don't know how many times this is all
people had to do to feel good again. It really does work in
Products for Natural Candida Treatment

Just wanted to let you know that I
finally got the Candidate (took 2 weeks to get to Canada) and I
have been taking it for 5 days and it is really working! Tons
of yeast is coming out of me, Finally! The die off is intense,
fluid is coming out of my ears every night and is insanely
itchy, and I feel like a truck ran over me and today my bowel
movement was completely covered in white yeast.
Thanks Dan, your site is the best one

- DidaClear for natural candida
treatment most active ingredient is Undecylenic acid
from castor beans, has been shown to be approximately
six times more effective as an antifungal than caprylic
acid, which DidaClear also contains. It has been proven
to be effective in maintaining a healthy balance of
intestinal and vaginal flora.
It inhibits yeast from converting to the mycelial form we
know as candida.
Undecylenic acid has been shown to be effective in
preventing fungal overgrowth associated with vaginal and
gastrointestinal candidiasis via its fungicidal activity.
Oral administration can inhibit or even prevent oral
candidiasis, or thrush.
During lactation, oral administration of undecylenic acid to
nursing mothers can prevent thrush in babies and is useful for
the treatment of breast yeast infections.
It has been found to be effective against such organisms as
Candida albicans, Trichophyton species, Epidermophyton
inguinale, and Microsporum audouini.
It was found to be effective when applied topically against
the herpes simplex virus in both animals and humans.
It has been found to completely inhibit the growth of
DidaClear has been shown to be
completely safe, even while nursing.

- Coconut oil for natural candida treatment whether in
whole form or capsules is a medically proven candida yeast
killer. This was proven in a landmark study done in 2001 by
Gudmundur Bergsson, et. al. at the Institute of Biology,
University of Iceland,1 Department of Anatomy, University
of Iceland Medical School, and Department of Microbiology,
National University Hospital, Reykjavik, Iceland. titled,
"In Vitro Killing of Candida albicans by
Fatty Acids and Monoglycerides". and published
in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy Volume 45:
3209-3212, No. 11.
They found that the capric acid found in cold pressed
coconut oil caused the quickest and most effective killing of
three strains of candida. Lauric acid was found to work on a
slower time period but was the most effective killing agent.
The oils exploded the plasma membranes and nucleus of the
candida yeast cell.
The link below takes you to a picture of the candida cell
and coconut oils effects. Side A is a normal candida yeast
cell, in side B you can see that the inside of the cell has
been literally scattered by coconut oil and I guarantee you
is quite dead
In another study published in June 2007 at the Department of
Medical Microbiology & Parasitology, University College
Hospital, Ibadan, Nigeria by Ogbolu DO, et. al.
Found that "Candida albicans was the most common isolate
from clinical specimens (17); others were Candida glabrata
(nine), Candida tropicalis (seven), Candida parapsilosis
(seven), Candida stellatoidea (six), and Candida krusei (six).
C. albicans had the highest susceptibility to coconut oil
(100%), with a minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 25%
(1:4 dilution), while fluconazole had 100% susceptibility at an
MIC of 64 microg/mL (1:2 dilution). C. krusei showed the
highest resistance to coconut oil with an MIC of 100%
(undiluted), while fluconazole had an MIC of > 128
microg/mL. It is noteworthy that coconut oil was active against
species of Candida at 100% concentration compared to
fluconazole. Coconut oil should be used in the treatment of
fungal infections in view of emerging drug-resistant Candida
In "The Yeast Connection Handbook", coconut oil is
recommended by the author, William Crook M.D.

Many natural health practitioners will prescribe caprylic
acid for natural candida cleansing but as the studies indicate,
your much better of with all the active ingredients rather than

- Oregano Oil for natural candida treatment has been
tested extensively against molds, yeast, fungi, and candida
in the scientific field. It is a proven candida yeast
killer and the best results are achieved when the oregano
oil contains 68.1% or more of carvacrol, which is the
active ingredient in the oil. All the studies below can be
verified by going to PubMed.
In a study done on 6 mice injected with candida albicans and
published in the Journal of Molecular and Cellular
Biochemistry. All six of the mice fed oregano oil survived more
than 30 days with no sign of Candida infection, while all six
mice that were fed just olive oil died within seven days.
A soon-to-be published study by Dr. Preuss and colleagues
looked at the potential of oregano oil in Candida albicans, and
found that oregano demonstrated antifungal powers in test-tube
and experimental studies, against both systemic and skin
In a study done in 2007 of fungal skin infections, oregano
oil was added to a foot bath where the water was 107.6 degrees,
99.7% of the mycelial fungi were killed. Another test was run
at 81 degrees with the oil added and considerable damaged was
done to the fungi.

Mycology, Tokyo, Japan; 2007
In another test done in 2003 at the Universidade de Coimbra
in Portugal, oregano oil at a strength of 68.1% was used
against 7 different clinical isolates of candida and 3 ATCC
type strains of candida. A fungicidal effect was observed to
the membranes of the candida strains.

Farmacognosia, Faculdade de Farmácia/CEF, Universidade de
Coimbra, 3000 Coimbra, Portugal. 2003
In a study done in 2002 at the Institute for Biological
Research, Belgrade, Yugoslavia, five different essential oils
were tested for antifungal activity against 13 fungal species.
Among the fungi tested were food poisoning, plant, animals and
human pathogenic species. The oils presented various degrees of
inhibition against all the fungi investigated. The highest and
broadest activity was shown by the carvacrol content oils,
while the oil of sage was the least effective. Carvacrol from
oregano oil exhibited the highest and 1,8-cineole the lowest
level of antifungal activity among the components tested.
Sokovic M, et al. at the Department of Plant
Physiology, Institute for Biological Research, Belgrade,
In another study done in South Africa in 2002, the effect of
nine different oils was evaluated on the growth of Aspergillus
parasiticus and Fusarium moniliforme.
The experimental design to examine the inhibition of
mycotoxins involved the incorporation of each of seven oils
into broth and patty cultures. The fungal mycotoxin was
identified by high-pressure liquid chromatography. Clove oil
was the most inhibitory to the growth of A. parasiticus and F.
moniliforme, followed by cinnamon oil, oregano and mace oils.
Neem and eucalyptus oil did not affect fungal growth.

Seven essential oils from seven air-dried plant species were
analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry against the
fungi Penicillium digitatum in Athens Greece in 2000. The
radial growth, conidial germination, and production of
Penicillium digitatum were inhibited completely by oregano,
thyme, dictamus, and marjoram essential oils at relatively low
concentrations (250-400 microg/mL). Lavender, rosemary, and
sage essential oils presented less inhibitory effect on the
radial growth and conidial germination of P. digitatum.

chloride, sorbic acid and sodium benzoate and the combined use
of oregano with sodium chloride were also tested under the same
conditions for comparison. Of the spices tested, only sodium
chloride were also tested under the same conditions for
comparison. Of the spices tested, only oregano showed effect on

All these Oregano Oil products below have a minimum of 70%
carvacrol, which is the active ingredient in oregano oil. For
natural candida treatment I would avoid anything less.

Capsules contains 70% Cavacrol.
- Cinnamon oil for natural
candida cleansing has been found to be deadly to drug
resistant candida yeast and other fungal infections. The
active ingredients are cinnamaldehyde, cinnamon oil
vapors and eugenol. Preliminary human evidence confirms
this effect in a clinical trial with AIDS patients
suffering from oral candida (thrush) infections that
improved with topical application of cinnamon oil.
Antibacterial actions have also been demonstrated for
cinnamon oil concentrates. The diterpenes in the
volatile oil have shown anti-allergic activity as well.
In addition, water extracts may help reduce ulcers. Test
tube studies also show that cinnamon can augment the
action of insulin and in Indian studies it was found to
help control blood sugar levels.

Cinnamon oil is not recommended to
be taken internally unless its in capsule form. The oil does work very
well on the skin and can be applied directly to thrush spots
in the mouth.
- Grapefruit Seed Extract is another proven candida
In 2005 a couple of college students at California
Polytechnic State University did a study on grapefruit seed
extract and its effect on candida albicans. They found that it
inhibited candida as well as Miconazole.
They also found that tea tree oil had no effect and neither
did low dose probiotics. Amazingly, the old standby garlic that
some people swear by didn't do a thing either. I suspect that
people using garlic and tea tree oil actually have bacterial
problems and not candida.

- A clinical study of Candex for natural candida
treatment on 52 patients who were diagnosed with candida
were given Candex for approximately three months.
They were also given a probiotic supplement (to boost the
population of friendly bacteria) and were placed on a
low-carbohydrate diet. All patients experienced a marked
improvement in both upper and lower gastro-intestinal symptoms,
like abdominal pain and bloating, as well as noticing
improvements in other symptoms such as skin rashes and
Dr. Craig Butler of the Progressive Medical Group, in
Atlanta, Georgia, who monitored the study, says that many more
patients have now benefited from the new supplement. He said;
"We have placed numerous patients on Candex with the same
results" It was concluded that Candex is an extremely effective
natural alternative for anti-fungal therapy, which is well
tolerated and does not cause any adverse side effects.
Results were also verified by giving each patient a before
and after Comprehensive Diagnostic Stool Analysis (CDSA) for pH
abnormalities, positive candida culture and significant
microscopic visualization of yeast mycelium in the stool.
They were also given a before and after Bioterrain Analysis
(BTA) test, which revealed fungi and increased physiologic
stress on the adrenals, kidneys and the gastrointestinal
All 52 patients showed improvement with both tests proving
Candex does indeed work.
A similar study is now being undertaken by the National
Candida Society in Britain.

The price of Candex is starting to get out of hand with 120
capsules costing $44.99 or more, thats up from about $37 last
year. So luckily I have run across a replacement formula that
is just about identical, actually slightly stronger than Candex
and its made by a reputable company. The product is YST Management.
Its $29.77 for 240 capsules so it will last twice as long as
Candex, it works just as well too.
Syntol is a much
better product than either Candex or YST Management. Syntol
contains an enzyme that works systemically in the blood that is
not found in the other two products. It also contains good
bacteria and one of these bacteria is so strong, it has been
said to almost completely kill all harmful pathogens in the
body. It was used as an antibiotic since the 40's until
pharmaceutical antibiotics gained favor with no harmful side
- MPS Gold is a formulation of
glyconutrients found to be effective for natural candida
treatment and cleansing. In 1998 an invitro study by
D.L. Lefkowitz and S.S. Lefkowitz Ph.D's. from Texas
Tech University, Dept. of Microbiology; found that a
complete glyconutrient formula verses aloe polymannose,
a single glyconutrient, killed 95% of the candida test
specimen by increasing phagyocyte and macrophage
activity. Aloe polymannose did increase the killing
function above controls but not nearly to the extent of
the complete glyconutrient formulation. The powder is
the best way to go instead of capsules.
Treatment and The Presence of Mercury and Other Heavy
- Because it has been proven that 85% or more of the
people that have candida yeast infections have high levels
of mercury in their bodies, and yeast is an immune response
to mercury. You must treat yourself for this problem right
along with treating yourself for the yeast infection or you
will never get well. There are few safe ways to do
Powdered cellular zeolites and
Cardio-Chelate are by far the safest
with the fewest side effects. However, Cardio-Chelate works
better for lead than it does mercury.
DMSA should really be taken under a
doctors supervision although you can do it yourself if you
My preferred method is cellular zeolites and DMSA combined.
What you do is take DMSA for 7 to 10 days then stop for 7 to 10
days. During the off time take zeolite. If you have mercury
fillings stick with zeolite only.
For more information about mercury poisoning and yeast
infections I have set up another webpage here. There
is just to much information to put onto this page alone about
- One product that I recommend and the why is explained
on the candida albicans cure page is the Ultimate Colon Cleanse. After you
read that page you should understand just why it is so
very important to take this while you do the yeast
Also do not forget the probiotics at the end of the
treatment plan. Without them the candida yeast will be back. To

Take a Multi
Vitamin/Mineral Formula for Natural Candida
- It would also be a very good idea to take some sort of
multi-vitamin/mineral formula everyday to support the
overall health of the body. Even the FDA and AMA have
recently acknowledged and now recommend that every one
takes one everyday. Took them long enough, they knew back
in the 30's that we are all starving to death because of
nutrient depletion of the soils. The worldwide soil
depletion levels of nutrients are currently down 56 to
Consider these generally recognized facts about common
Aspirin: Depletes vitamin A, calcium, potassium, B complex
and vitamin C.
Caffeine: Depletes vitamin B1, inositol, biotin, potassium and
It also interferes with calcium and iron absorption.
Chlorine: Depletes vitamin E.
Chocolate: Depletes calcium and vitamin D.
Fluoride: Depletes vitamin C, destroys enzymes used for DNA
production and causes cancer.
Sedatives: Deplete folic acid and vitamin D.
Nitrates and Nitrates: Deplete vitamins A, C and E.
Sugar and white flour products: Deplete the B-complex
Birth Control Pills: Deplete folic acid, vitamins C, B6, B2,
B12, B1, and E.
Cortisone: Depletes vitamins A, B6, D, C, and zinc and
potassium. It also reduces immune function.
Stress: Depletes all vitamin stores and can reduce immune
function by 50%.
I am not going to get into all the prescription drugs, there
are to many of them, and they all have there side effects.
A very good multivitamin/mineral formula is Total Balance for Men and Women. Even better is Intramax, be sure to check out the
pictures of the blood and body before and after taking
Intramax. It really works!
Total Balance comes in mens and womens formulas specifically
designed for the respective sexes needs. The product is made to
GMP standards with USP ingredients and you will feel a
difference when you take them, I do.
Hi Dan! I am doing great!
I feel great and have dropped 25
pounds. I have been feeling so well that I am getting more and
more things done all the time, because now I really feel like
doing them. I am getting lots of compliments and questions. I
am anxious to see what the next few months will be like once I
finish this program and see how my body handles all this. So, I
will need some direction from you as to what happens next for
me after the liver cleanse. I'm sure I will have more questions
along the way.This is great. I have never felt so well in my
life....and that's what I tell folks. I can't thank you
