I follow a somewhat regular program of diet, exercise and nutritional supplements which is intended to keep me in a good state of health. I threw the following health regimen together for a relatively healthy person. Subject to continual revision & improved scientific justification.
Apple Cider Vinegar is high in B-vitamins and very nourishing to the body. It help the body’s pH neutralize and improves digestion. It is well known for killing yeast and improving skin condition. It tastes awful, but after taking it for a while, you will become more tolerant of the taste, and your body will start to crave it. Start with 1 tsp up to 3 times a day about 30 minutes before each meal (some people can’t handle it before breakfast!). If you handle this well, this dosage can be increased to a tablespoon.
Diatomaceous Earth– this is a naturally occurring substance that has amazing ability to kill parasites, yeast and parasite eggs. It is naturally high in silica, which is necessary for hair, nail and skin growth, and has other trace minerals as well. It can also help restore body tissue and improve digestion. If you decide to take this supplementally, start with 1 tsp per day in 8 ounces of water and work up to 1-2 TBSP a day until yeast symptoms disappear.
Note: Exercising, taking cayenne supplements and getting in hot tubs or saunas during the healing process is suppose to help.
Vitamin C– Besides being an excellent antioxidant and immune support, Vitamin C is helpful in yeast/parasite removal. If you have symptoms of yeast and parasites, take 5,000 mg (5 grams) per day spread out in 2-3 doses. Do not take vitamin C at the same time as calcium/magnesium as they will neutralize each other. High consumption of Vitamin C may cause loose bowel movements, especially when yeast and parasites are being removed. This is not necessarily worrisome, but if it bothers you, adjust the dose down until symptoms go away.
Coconut Oil– Coconut Oil is naturally anti fungal and very nourishing to the body. Consider taking several tablespoons a day additional as an antifungal support. This will also help support the hormones and reproductive system. To make it easier to take, dissolve a couple tablespoons in a hot tea of choice and drink. The first couple sips will be coconut oil, and then you will just taste the tea. You can also take Lauricidin monolaurin (glycerol monolaurate). Lauricidin monolaurin is derived from coconut oil and pretty convenient.
The removal of yeast and parasites can be uncomfortable at times. This reaction, named after the German dermatologist who discovered it, is basically the discomfort caused by the die off of yeast and parasites and the body’s attempt to remove them. The faster you attempt to treat symptoms and the more potent remedies you take, the higher your chance of experiencing this reaction.
It is best to be on an anti yeast/parasite diet for several weeks before starting supplements to help minimize this reaction. Starting with small doses of Apple Cider Vinegar and Diatomaceous Earth and then working up will also help keep die off symptoms at bay.
You may even find that you “catch a cold” a week or so after starting to treat your yeast and parasite symptoms. This is actually a mild Herxheimer reaction, and backing down supplements and drinking more water should help it pass quickly.
Other Important Notes
Removing yeast and parasites is a difficult job for your body. During this process, it is highly important that you support your body as much as possible with regular exercise, good diet, adequate sleep, and limiting exposure to toxins.
Oil of Oregano – Oil of Oregano, works by attacking the non-enveloped viruses, as an antiviral… doesn’t work against many of them.
Garlic– To help remove yeast and parasites, finely mince 1-2 cloves and drink in a cup of water before meals.
Olive Oil– Also an antifungal that supports removal of parasite and yeast waste. Add 1-2 TBSP or more to salads or veggies, or take supplementally.
Soaking in an Epsom salt bath (1/2 cup Epsom salts in hot bath water) will also help remove toxins through the skin. Drinking enough water will help flush die off toxins out faster, and adequate sleep will give the body enough time to regenerate.
During this time, it is also vitally important that you do not consume sugar or carbs, as this will make the process much slower and much more uncomfortable. Consuming enough raw vegetables during this time will also help keep your energy levels up and clean the body faster. A grain-free and sugar-free diet is vital in removing yeast and parasites from the body.
Restoring and rebalancing the gut bacteria is more crucial to your health today than at any time in the history of mankind. Your physical and mental health are directly influenced by, and dependent on, the bacteria and other microbes that live in and on your body. I am convinced that properly maintaining the microflora is one of the underlying secrets to extreme longevity.
Probiotics restore the helpful gut bacteria that is wiped out by yeast or parasites (or antibiotic or oral contraceptive use). Probiotics are necessary to restore proper intestinal flora, even after yeast and parasites have been removed. A high quality probiotic supplement should be included, taken according to product instruction.
Do not take probiotics within an hour of Apple Cider Vinegar or Diatomaceous Earth! You might also consider drinks like Kombucha and Water Kefir to help build up probiotic levels, or whole plain full-fat yogurt. The best way to support digestive health is first to add more probiotic foods, such as yogurt, sauerkraut, and kefir to your daily diet. But if you can’t eat those foods every day—or don’t care for their taste—then your best option is to take a probiotic supplement.
Because the different strains of probiotic bacteria have slightly different functions and are concentrated in various places along the digestive tract, probiotic supplements that contain multiple strains tend to be more effective overall than products containing an extremely high concentration of just one or two strains. This is because many strains work synergistically to influence our health. The whole literally is greater than the sum of its parts.
However, I must say L. Reuteri seems to be the probiotic of choice, it seems to eradicate sickness within an hour. Take two pearls with meals.
Slowing down the aging process and more energy. The “powerhouses” of cell function — called mitochondria — lose energy over time and prevent cells from regenerating as they once did. To boost the mitochondrial counts, some people take a a few boosters that are NAD+ and active co-q10
Keep your skin looking good with Aloe Vera organic moisturizer and Coconut Oil
Avoid GMO foods. The benefit claims of GMO foods are that they can be grown in less than optimal soils. One problem from growing food in less than optimal soils is the foods provide less than optimal vitamins, minerals, and other vital nutrients. A 10-year study in Norway has found GMO’s may cause obesity, digestive problems, and damage to major organs including liver, kidneys, pancreas and genitals. In one of the most recent studies published in the Journal of Hematology and Thromboembolic Disease indicates GM crops that contain Bt toxin increase risk of leukemia.
