CANDIDA-III and the ANTIBIOTIC

excellent and most recommend for long-term use. If you are not
overweight or constipated you may start cleansing this way instead
of using magnesium salt. Psyllium is especially effective for
removing endotoxins from the intestines and reducing allergic and
In a large glass of water add a teaspoon of
sodium bicarbonate and a heaped teaspoon of psyllium hulls, stir and
drink immediately followed by another glass of water. Until you
start with the systemic antimicrobial therapy add chopped garlic or
another antimicrobial to the psyllium drink but continue adding a
teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate as long as there are signs of pain,
inflammation, Candida or overacidity. If you suspect intestinal
parasites also add MMS or Lugol’s solution or wormwood or essential
oils to the psyllium.
With Candida overgrowth any sexual partner
should also use antimicrobial therapy. Most effective for vaginal
thrush is inserting a capsule filled with borax at bedtime for up to
two weeks. Some individuals are highly sensitive and with multiple
allergies. In this case it may be necessary to proceed very slowly,
remain on a stable low-allergy diet, use anti-inflammatory measures,
such as slippery elm powder before meals and ginger with meals, and
introduce probiotics, lactic acid fermented food and anti-microbials
only very gradually.
sensitive individuals it is most helpful to alkalize the body.
Sodium bicarbonate is a strong fungicide and potassium bicarbonate
is even stronger. Half to one teaspoon of bicarbonate in a glass of
water taken on an empty stomach or 2-3 hours after meals can be used
several times daily to sanitize the intestinal tract and alkalize
the lymphatic system.
Acidophilus & Bifido
This leads us to
the next step: replacing the decimated pathogenic microbes with
desirable lactobacilli. This must be done in a massive dose 30-60
minutes after each flush; otherwise the unwanted microbes may grow
back to full strength after the next meal. Acidophilus culture is
used to repopulate the freed-up spaces at the walls of the small
intestines, while bifido bacteria are the protective inhabitants of
the colon or large intestines.
There are several possibilities.
These bacterial cultures are available from health food shops as
powders in brown glass bottles that should be refrigerated before
and after sale. You may buy a mixed culture and take two teaspoons
in water or vegetable juice or one teaspoon each of the separate
cultures. If you suspect cows' milk allergy, which is rather
frequent in this condition, then use milk-free cultures.
Alternatively, you may take several high-potency capsules.
High-potency cultures should contain 10 Billion (or more) live
bacteria per gram or per capsule.
The medium-chain saturated fatty acids in
coconut oil are potent antimicrobial agents, effective against
fungi, viruses and many bacteria. The most effective fatty acids are
caprylic acid (with 8 carbon atoms), capric acid (10 carbon atoms)
and lauric acid (12 carbon). They appear to work by causing
microbial cell walls to disintegrate.
Coconut oil appears to
be effective within days. With Candida take initially 4 tablespoons
of coconut oil spread out during the day, and after improvement you
may reduce this to 2 tablespoons for several more weeks. This seems
to be effective against systemic as well as localised infestations,
including those of the genitals. However, it is advisable to apply
coconut oil topically as well.
The best commercial product is
cold-pressed or virgin coconut oil. However, this has been
heat-stabilised to destroy lipase. Therefore, my preference is
self-made raw coconut cream or milk: press coconut pieces through a
low-speed juicer, or alternatively blend with water, strain and
For topical applications and for those with fat
malabsorption the lipase-rich coconut milk can be expected to be
much more effective than heated coconut oil with only a very low
concentration of free fatty acids. Alternatively, you may use lipase
supplements with coconut oil.
