Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, doctor of natural
medicine and founder of DrAxe.com. In this video I’m going to share with you The Candida
Diet and my top tips to cure candida fast. I can tell you from working with thousands
of patients. I’m going to go through the exact diet, the supplements, and a few treatment
tips that I can tell you, just within 24 hours you can start seeing incredible results in
eliminating candida. So let’s start with number one, the foods
you’ve got to get out of your diet. It’s going to be sugar, grains, and surprisingly foods
that are cold. Now, that’s part of Chinese medicine which I’ll share more in a minute.
But for starting out, if you have candida, you obviously . . . I think you know this,
but you want to get rid of sugar. You know, any time you have that white thrush on your
tongue, that’s a sign that yeast is feeding on sugar within your body. We want to start eliminating yeast. We want
to stop feeding that candida albicans. And so, in order to do that, you’ve got to eliminate
all sugar from your diet, and then also eliminate grains because grains are breaking down into
sugar very quickly and even fruit at first. Now, listen, long-term, you’re going to add
some grains back in after a few days and even fruit later on. But again, to start those
are the biggest culprits that are causing candida to grow. And last but not least, this is really important.
If you’re over consuming cold foods, ice water, ice cream, cold smoothies. According to Chinese
medicine, your spleen and pancreas and these areas in your body that are responsible for
eliminating candida, they get over burdened by cold foods. And so rather than having a
cold smoothie, have a warm bowl of broth or rather than doing ice cream, have something
warm. Again, you want things that are warming to your body and drying. That’s the key to
killing candida. Number two is doing a candida cleanse. Before
you go on my candida diet, what I recommend the first thing you do is do a three day cleanse
where you’re only consuming bone broth and vegetables, and that’s really it for three
days. So again, bone broth, vegetables. You could do a little chicken in there as well. Basically you want to get a big crock pot.
You want to do some chicken broth along with vegetables, including onions, celery, garlic,
and a little bit of kale and sea salt. And basically you’re going to do that soup with
basically vegetables. You can also throw in things, like cauliflower and broccoli. And
you’re going to do that bone broth soup with a little bit of chicken and just consume that
for three days. I’ve had people do that two weeks to see even faster results. That’s where
you want to start, in terms of doing a candida cleanse. It’s mostly bone broth for a few
days with a little bit of vegetables and sometimes a little bit of chicken. Step three is doing the candida diet, and
here are the best foods for helping you cure candida. Number one, it’s going to be steamed
vegetables, okay? Vegetables are the easiest thing for your body to digest. That’s the
first food. The second food is going to be fermented vegetables, like sauerkraut. Now,
typically you don’t want to eat the sauerkraut cold, but sauerkraut and kimchi are warming
to the body. They actually also help your body get more good bacteria in its probiotics
which will help crowd out the yeast and bad bacteria that’s built up within your system. The number three food is going to be bone
broth. Bone broth is incredible because it contains the amino acid, glycine, which supports
the liver and helps your body clear candida. The fourth food is going to be organic meat,
like wild caught salmon, organic chicken and turkey, lamb and grass fed beef. Those are
some other great options of foods that can help eliminate candida. And last but not least, it’s going to be starchy
vegetables, specifically things like butternut squash, spaghetti squash, and pumpkin. Doing
a little bit of starchy vegetables. Now, you don’t want to overboard with those, but one
to two servings a day, earlier in the day, rather than doing grains and sugars, you do
starchy vegetables which are a little bit sweet. According to Chinese medicine, those
foods help nourish the spleen. They help nourish the body so your body can actually start to
build up the strength of those organs which are responsible for eliminating candida from
the body. By the way, if you want to a full report on
this on all of the foods that are best, I’ve got an article on DrAxe.com. So you can go
to DrAxe.com, look up candida diet, and I’ve got a diet on there for you on my website. Step number four is take the right supplements.
By far, the number one supplement for killing candida is actually not just a supplement,
it’s a tea. It’s called Pau d’Arco. Now, you can take Pau d’Arco as a supplement, but I
recommend it in a tea form drinking three glasses of Pau d’Arco tea a day. And Pau d’Arco,
that’s spelled P-A-U d’Arco, D-A-R-C-O tea, and you can order this simply online very
easily. But I’m telling you the number one supplement for killing candida is Pau d’Arco
tea. It works very effectively. A few other things that really help are essential
oils, specifically essential oils of clove, oil of oregano, and myrrh essential oil. Those
three oils help eliminate pathogenic bacteria from the body. And the way that I recommend
you use those is simply rubbing those on your abdomen, rubbing those on your neck, diffusing
them in your home. Simply breathing those in on a regular basis but those essential
oils are effective. A few other things that are effective at candida
are taking capric acids, a caprylic acid supplement, taking a berberine supplement, and then also
using coconut oil. In fact, coconut oil has anti-microbial benefits at killing off candida. And last step but not least in the candida
diet is actually has to do with lifestyle. If you want to overcome candida, you’ve got
to reduce stress, and exercise can help in eliminating candida, specifically anything
that’s really getting the body warm. So whether that’s weight training, whether that’s any
form of cardio, actually typically weight training or burst training is the best thing
to do. And you can do a Google search for burst training online, but that’s going to
be the most effective type of exercise to clear candida completely from the body. And
so, again, if you want to clear candida, you’ve got to do that. And here’s something else I want you to think
about. With the Chinese diet, if you look at Chinese medicine, what happens, your body,
when you have candida, it’s typically damp and cold, okay? So think about that. That’s
where mold and fungus and things grow. If you want to get rid of candida, you have got
to consume a diet that is drying and warmer. And so foods that are very drying in nature
are going to be vegetables that’s going to be warm foods, like garlic and onions. It’s
going to be actually if you’re going to do one grain corn and then amaranth are two of
the best because they’re drying to the body. You really want to dry the body out, and that’s
why Paul d’Arco tea is so great as well. So again, guys hey I want to say thank you
