We received an email discussing the potential benefits and concerns regarding the intake of chaga tea and colloidal silver in relation to Candida. The individual, from a particular group, expressed gratitude for the guidance and information provided through our book, Candida Crusher. They mentioned their positive experience with the Candida diet and expressed interest in understanding the relationship between colloidal silver, chaga mushroom, and its effects on Candida.
To address the queries on chaga tea: Chaga mushroom, scientifically known as inonotus obliquus, is found in nature and has traditionally been used as an immune-boosting product. The question raised was about its safety when consumed during a Candida cleanse, and whether adding colloidal silver to the tea could help in eliminating any potential pathogens after the tea has been brewed.
From our perspective, chaga tea, when properly cooked, poses minimal risks in relation to Candida. The tea is believed to have strong anti-viral and anti-microbial properties, and many individuals have found it beneficial in their diet. However, as with any dietary change or introduction, it’s essential to observe how one’s body reacts. If one is already accustomed to drinking chaga tea and finds it beneficial, there seems to be no compelling reason to eliminate it from the diet. However, introducing it gradually, especially during the initial stages of a Candida cleanse, may be a wise approach.
|Chaga Tea||Immune-boosting, Anti-microbial||Needs cautious introduction||Can be included in a Candida diet|
|Colloidal Silver||Antimicrobial, External applications||Not for daily long-term consumption||Good for occasional use, especially externally|
Regarding colloidal silver, it does indeed have antimicrobial properties and can be beneficial in certain scenarios, such as external applications or when traveling. However, it’s not advisable to consume colloidal silver daily over extended periods.
In addition to chaga tea, other herbal teas like pau d’arco can also be beneficial. It’s essential to maintain variety in one’s diet and not become overly reliant on a single product or remedy.
