So many people go through life suffering from symptoms like fatigue, yeast infections, irritable bowel syndrome, itching, headaches and brain fog, etc. As varied as those symptoms may be, they often have the same cause – a fungus called Candida Albicans. In the developed world, this condition is much more prevalent nowadays than it was 100 years ago, primarily because of our imbalanced diets, lifestyles and over-use of antibiotics.
Symptoms of a yeast overgrowth (Candida)

Candida is the disruption of the micro-organisms in your gut. This balance of “gut flora” is a crucial part of your immune system and digestive health.
Candida only becomes a problem when we do something to change that balance such as during periods of stress, after a course of antibiotics or eating a high sugar diet. When this happens, the colonies of Candida Albicans are able to expand rapidly until they control a large portion of your gut.
Candida Albicans releases up to 79 different by-products, including uric acid and a powerful neurotoxin named acetaldehyde. Acetaldehyde causes chronic headaches and brain fog. Uric acid can cause joint pain and lead to gout if an excess builds up.
This change in your “gut flora” can lead to toxins being absorbed from the bowel into the bloodstream, resulting in food intolerances and allergies especially to dairy, yeast, grains and sugary foods, digestive problems, yeast infections and oral thrush.
Common causes of Candida
Antibiotics, they can be lifesavers, however, they also can have serious side effects. Today it seems that antibiotics are prescribed for everything and anything, and in a lot of cases are often prescribed for sicknesses that would quickly clear up by themselves in a few days.
Unfortunately these antibiotics kill off all bacteria, bad and good which leaves room for Candida Albicans to quickly multiply and expand.
A diet high in sugar can lead to a Candida overgrowth and we are all aware that the modern Western diet is full of sugar and high fructose corn syrup and this is exactly what Candida Albicans need to thrive.
Long period of stress can contribute to a Candida outbreak. Stress can make physical changes to your body and may be one of the major causes of disease in society today.
First you must change your diet: Candida thrives on sugars so that is the first thing to cut out of your diet. Foods like chocolate, fizzy drinks and sugary snacks should all be avoided and unfortunately while you are fighting the Candida you should also cut out fruit and starchy vegetables like potatoes and yams.
Make a healthy diet of non-starchy vegetables, meats, fish, and healthy grains. Cook all food in Coconut Oil, use garlic, onion, kelp, ginger, cayenne pepper, lemon and lime for seasoning. Other helpful foods are pumpkin seeds and turnips.
Take an antifungal: Colloidal Silver Gel is an antifungal which is highly effective in destroying the Candida organisms. It kills of anaerobic bacteria and virus whenever it comes in contact with them, and so it completely supports the immune system against most types of disease and infections at the same time. Colloidal Silver rapidly accelerates the healing of injured and damaged tissues which have often been attacked and consumed by the Candida organisms. Research shows that Colloidal Silver Gel only attacks the “unfriendly” pathogens and will not harm the friendly bacteria.
