Could you please share some potential treatments for aggravations that I might experience during the treatment?

Here are some handy hints and tips on what to do if you experience any of the following aggravations that may occur during the CanXida Candida Crusher Protocol, especially if you have had a chronic candida for many years:

Bloating and Gas: If you have gone through the CanXida Candida Crusher Book, you will have read plenty of information about dysbiosis (make sure to read our comprehensive dysbiosis article by Dr. Blake), leaky gut, food allergies, and the many other digestive issues affecting those with candida infections. Bloating and gas are especially common, because you have an overgrowth of yeasts inside your digestive tract and these yeasts like to eat sugars and produce gas as a result. Some people have a complete disappearance of these complaints that they may have experienced on/off for years, whereas others will begin to get them when they commence treatment.

The potential food allergies many have and leaky gut syndrome will only add to the digestive discomfort, so be aware that your level of bloating and gas may go up and down during the treatment. Make sure you do the Big Clean Up before you start on the CanXida Candida Crusher Protocol, it can potentially help you a lot by flushing out a lot of the bad bugs and yeasts from your system before you even begin.

Garlic is one of your best friends when it comes to bloating and gas, and so is CanXida Remove. And make sure you take it and the probiotic enzyme CanXida Restore religiously, you should notice a significant reduction with bloating and gas if you do. Stick with our diet recommendations and be sure to look at your stress levels, as stress can affect your digestive system quite a lot. Make sure to watch our three video series on topic of stress by clicking here.

Indigestion: This is very much like the bloating and gas, and both of these digestive complaints can be as a consequence of indigestion. Be sure to take CanXida Restore before or during each meal, eat smaller portion sizes and be sure to chew your foods well. Have you checked the combinations of food you are eating? Eat steamed vegetables and white (chicken and fish) proteins for a few days; this should get your digestion back on track. Keep an eye on your stress levels; stress has this way of affecting the stomach of many anxious people in particular.

Weight loss: People don’t normally gain weight on the CanXida Candida Crusher Protocol; in fact , we’ve found that they are much more inclined to lose it. We like people to keep on eating grains and legumes, as these will ensure that not too much weight is lost. Eat smaller meals more frequently, and be sure to eat plenty of protein as well. Have plenty of rest periods and don’t do too much, anyone who spends lots of calories and cuts their diet back will be significantly more prone to losing weight. Those who worry excessively or who can’t relax will find it harder to gain as well, be sure to read the lifestyle hints and tips.

Constipation: This bowel complaint may occur at any time during your treatment, and one of the main reasons it may occur is because you are changing your diet and the bowel flora become altered as a consequence. If you come into the Candida Crusher Program with a history of constipation, I’d like you to start to eat sensibly from now on and not to revert back to what you were eating previously, and especially take a look at your lifestyle habits, because poor habits here are often at the root cause of chronic constipation.

  • Eat smaller, more frequent meals and avoid overeating at one sitting. Take time to eat, breathe slowly and chew food thoroughly. Are you still eating your dinner on your lap in front of the evening news? Try eating at the dinner table.
  • Reduce and stop your caffeine intake, caffeine is implicated in constipation and diarrhea.
  • Foods that lubricate the intestines. Eat foods like beet, okra (gumbo), kiwi fruit, seaweed, spinach, sesame seed, sesame oil, walnut, pine nut, almond, alfalfa sprouts, carrot and cauliflower.
  • Foods that promote bowel motions. Eat foods that help move stool through the intestines-cabbage, papaya, peas, sesame seeds, coconut, asparagus, and kiwi fruit.
  • Herbs & foods that soothe the intestines. Eat foods like marshmallow root, flax seeds, fenugreek seeds, psyllium seeds, licorice root, and slippery elm bar
  • Beneficial bacteria enhancing foods. Eat foods like miso, sauerkraut, yoghurt, Kim chi, kefir and quark
  • Decrease intake of saturated (animal) fats. Eat foods with an increased level of essential fatty acids (cold-water fish, nuts, and seeds). Take the Omega 3 fatty acid supplement twice daily.
  • Eat more fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Did you know that a 2010 survey found that 17% of British people never eat fresh fruits or vegetables? Follow the MEVY Diet, and make sure you eat plenty of greens, they help the bowel function and you will discover that your bowels will improve significantly within weeks.
  • Drink more water. Do you really drink water frequently throughout the day? Warm lemon water taken before meals stimulates digestion. Try the juice of ½ a lemon in water in the morning before breakfast. REMEMBER to drink plenty of liquids. You need more fluid particularly when you have more fiber for fiber to work effectively.
  • Flax meal. Have 1 heaping tsp. in 8 oz. of apple juice, provides fiber and soothes the digestive tract. Follow with an additional 8 oz. of water. Linseed/Sunflower/Almond mix is excellent too. Slippery elm bark powder is good, but can be a bit pricey.
  • Colonic hydrotherapy. We have solved very tricky cases of constipation with recommending a course of colonics plus other complementary and alternative methods of healing. Consider visiting a professional colon therapist if you have a history of bowel problems.
  • Liver and bowel detox. If you have been constipated for some time, get that bowel working first then consider the Liver & Gallbladder Flush. You can watch our comprehensive playlist on topic of cleanses by clicking here.

Diarrhea: Diarrhea does occur with candida, and when it does we generally suspect parasites and bad bacterial levels, especially if there is any sensation of pain or discomfort around the belly button or to one side lower down the abdomen. Try to keep away from raw beets; they may make the diarrhea worse. Make sure you eat the raw garlic (during a meal) every day and take CanXida Remove three to four times daily. Yogurt may help a lot here, and also the fermented and cultured foods. Be sure to take the probiotics three times daily. Slippery elm bark is good and so is ground linseed.

Nausea: Although nausea does occur, we rarely witness this with patients who undergo the CanXida Candida Crusher Protocol. Sometimes parasites can cause nausea, particularly when they are killed during treatment. Grapefruit seed extract (GSE) can cause nausea in a very few, but GSE is just too effective to leave out of CanXida Remove, so just reduce the dose if you experience any discomfort. Sometimes taking a (yeast free) B Complex vitamins can help with nausea, especially B6. Ginger tea can help significantly, so can chewing on a thin slice of fresh ginger. Be sure to take CanXida Restore a few times during the day before meals, they will help a lot. Some folks become more sensitive to smells during treatment, or have become very sensitive to odors or fumes due to their candida overgrowth; a good idea here is to burn some essential oil like lavender. Keep your meals to small portion sizes, another good tip.

Blood Sugar Problems and Sugar Cravings: Whenever you make diet changes or are prone to stress; you could develop hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar. Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar are irritability, weakness, tiredness, headaches, sweet cravings, and shakiness if meals are delayed. Make sure you eat small meals more frequently, eat plenty of protein and avoid a carbohydrate rich diet especially. Blood sugar issues generally resolve themselves after you have worked out the right and wrong foods to eat. After you have been on the CanXida Candida Crusher Protocol for a month or two you will have worked out what foods suit you best, and what you should avoid. For stubborn low blood sugar or excessive sweet cravings, take 500 mcg of Chromium picolinate before meals. For seriously heavy-duty sweet cravings, take some of the herb called Gymnema.

Mucus: We’ve had some patients complain of increasing phlegm and mucus during treatment, once again, this will be cause by the change of diet and flora of the digestive system. We suspect it also has something to do with a slight change in the body’s pH and digestive enzymatic levels. Be sure to get rid of the mucus-forming foods out of your diet (especially dairy products), and take a more alkaline approach to your eating. CanXida Rebuild formula will help considerably here, and so will lemon juice and garlic. We’ve found that those with phlegm tend to improve when they supplement with pancreatic enzymes in particular.

Fatigue And A Low Mood: You may not experience much fatigue or mood changes, but for the majority of patients we have seen this will not be the case. Do expect to feel tired during the different stages of treatment and be sure to allow extra rest and sleep, your body and especially your immune system will appreciate it and you will recover that much sooner. This is certainly not a good time to go to Peru for a two-week hike to see Machu Picchu, as one of our patients did a few years ago. But it is a good time to go to a health resort and be pampered. You may not be particularly pleasant to be around during the first two to three weeks of the MEVY Diet, bearing that in mind it may not be the best time to go to a wedding! You may be able to plan some events in your life, and if you can plan to undergo the first month of treatment away from any important upcoming social or work-related events, it will be a good decision you have made. Therefore, try to schedule the initial part of your CanXida Candida Crusher Protocol away from weddings, vacations or important social gatherings. Explain to the person closest to you that you are going to commence the CanXida Candida Crusher Protocol and that you may experience fatigue, low moods or an increase in some of your symptoms. Good advice we can give to the chronic female yeast infection patient is to be extra kind to yourself, consider that you have a chronic health problem. You wouldn’t do anything too strenuous if you were very sick would you? You would avoid alcohol, late nights and doing too much in general, you would be more inclined to rest up with a magazine. The kinder you are to yourself the quicker you are likely to recover fully. Give yourself permission to ease off a little and take it easy, especially on those days when you feel just drained or washed-out. For guys we usually tell them to rest up, and treat themselves as if they are recovering from an operation or a major sporting event.

Anger, Depression and Crying: Feeling lousy and even feeling angry are common emotional responses for some who are chronically unwell with candida. They are normal bodily responses to healing; so be aware that your tolerance levels may be lower than they normally are and your fuse may be a little short, especially if you have teenagers or a similar reason to get irritated. Don’t feel ashamed of having a cry, it is a good emotional release as you will almost certainly be feeling more sensitive than usual, especially during the early stages of candida treatment. Talking to a trusted friend about how you feel is a good idea too. Make sure you have plenty of rest and do speak with your doctor or a counsellor if you feel sad frequently. A chronic candida infection can make you feel really lousy at the best of times. St John’s Wort may be a good choice for those who get the blues, but do talk to your health-care professional before you take things for emotional expressions like anger and depression. B Vitamins, Calcium/Magnesium and Vitamin C are helpful as well.

Headaches: A headache is a warning sign that something is not quite right inside your body. Is it because you stopped coffee or are going through the detox phase? The patients who get the fiercest headaches are the ones who went cold turkey on 5 cups of coffee a day. We see them regularly, and boy, what a nasty headache you can get from a caffeine withdrawal! Are you eating enough food and drinking enough water? Blood sugar problems occur easily, your brain especially needs that glucose (blood sugar) to keep it mentally focused and a lack of food, skipping meals or eating at weird times can all help to stimulate one of those nice dull background headaches. Are you resting enough or doing too much? Those who don’t relax and stress out (especially those who worry) tend to get sore and tight muscles of face, neck and upper back. It has been estimated that over three-quarters of all headaches are caused by tense muscles, and a tension headache is also one of the most common reasons why a person would take a painkiller. Do you stress out and are you working on reducing your stress load? Maybe you have been exposed to toxic fumes or a toxic (mold) environment? Often times, those who begin the CanXida Candida Crusher Protocol may well experience a headache in the first few weeks, and it will be probably due to a release of toxins that were stored away in the body. These kinds of headaches tend to spontaneously disappear within two or three days. Try a Vitamin B Complex, but also a Magnesium product, a mineral that can help to relax those tight and sore muscles.

Insomnia: We have covered this common problem in great detail watch this video.

Skin Aggravations: Some people get bad breath when they detox, some get tired and develop brain fog, some get a sore throat of a cold, others develop sore joints, and then there are those who get skin aggravations. If toxins are not eliminated properly through the digestive tract or kidneys, the skin may become a dumping ground for toxins and you could find that your skin may develop pimples or an acne-like condition, itchiness, redness or various kinds of swellings. Occasionally a person undergoing the CanXida Candida Crusher Protocol may get a stye on their eyelid or a boil somewhere on their torso. These are all signs of toxins leaving the body and should be encouraged, so don’t get upset and think that you have some new skin disease; it’s just the body eliminating rubbish. We have found that some people get a skin rash when they eliminate the potentially allergy foods from their diet, especially those who used to have eczema in the past. Try Vitamin C powder, 1 to 2 teaspoons per day. Aim for 3,000 milligrams a day in water in divided doses before meals. One of the best herbal medicines is Burdock (Arctium lappa), a good blood purifier when you have a skin condition. Golden seal is a good choice too; small amounts for two weeks should do the trick. Take CanXida Restore twice daily before meals. Calendula cream is worth applying to these skin areas, and get some Tea Tree Oil soap for the bath. If the skin flares up considerably during treatment, then reduce the dosage of any supplements you are taking and increase your intake of water, vegetables and get plenty of rest.

Colds, Coughs And Sore Throats: Those fighting a candida infection may be more susceptible to poor immunity, and is it any wonder? When your body is fighting a yeast infection, when it probably has food allergies and a leaky gut, you will be more prone coming down with a cold or cough. How can your immune system work under a load of yeast and bad bacteria? And then some take antibiotics as a consequence, is it any wonder if their immune system becomes increasingly weaker? Make sure you get ample rest and avoid getting excessively cold, exposed to drafts or being in moldy or damp places. Be sure to have a fresh clove of garlic daily, take CanXida Restore, a good high quality Omega 3 and have additional Vitamin C if your immune system is especially vulnerable. We recommend herbal medicines for a sore throat, and our favorite herbs here are Echinacea root, Goldenseal, Myrrh and Poke root.
