In Case You're Not Familiar With Us or What We Do. . .

Since 2013 we've been providing people like you with all the tools & free educational materials needed to finally heal your gut from Candida, Leaky Gut, IBS, SIBO & (almost) any other gut issue.

In addition to making quizzes & writing articles, we've created a natural yeast-eradicating supplement called CanXida which you can learn more about later. 

We also run the largest gut disorder related YouTube channel (called the CanXida Gut Health Networkwhere you can find over 4,000 educational videos (along with several ebooks) that teach you step-by step how to get your gut back to normal. 

The channel was originally exclusively about Candida but has since expanded into virtually every other gut health related issue and we plan to continue expanding it to cover many other health related issues.

Why do we give away so much information for free? Because we like to see people recover. It’s fantastic and the best part of our job. At the time of writing this, we have 91,158 subscribers and 14,133,175 video views.

This is the type of work we do. 

But enough about us. Let's talk about candida yeast infections.

What Is "Candida" & What Does It Have to Do With Yeast Infections? 

Many people don't know this but yeast infections are caused by a naturally occurring yeast-like fungus found in the GI tract (digestive system) of 90% of the population.

This fungus is called Candida (or Candida Albicans).

Candida is an opportunistic pathogenmeaning it's NOT a problem when kept in check by friendly bacteria but will become a problem when those bacteria are no longer present.

It's not an issue if your gut is healthy but becomes an issue when your gut flora is imbalanced.

When not kept in check, Candida will overgrow and spread to the vagina in women & other parts of the body.

These can include the skin, hair, nails, and mouth.

When grown in the lab, Candida appears as a large, round, white or cream colony. That's why Candida Albicans infections (thrush) often feature white mouth lesions. 

And because it's a fungus – Candida is HIGHLY susceptible to anti-fungal treatments.

What Causes Candida to Overgrow?

Many things can cause Candida to overgrowth including poor diet, high stress lifestyle & excessive alcohol use.

Antibiotics are the primary cause. 

"But my doctor said I’m supposed to take antibiotics when I've got a gut problem or yeast infection.”

Antibiotics are the absolute WORST thing you can take if you've got a Candida problem. 

The problem with antibiotics (as you’ve probably read elsewhere) is they indiscriminately wipe out ALL the bacteria and yeast in your gut, including the beneficial ones.

What most people (including many general practitioners) don’t understand is beneficial bacteria are what PREVENT problems like Candida overgrowth in the first place.

Good bacteria, primarily lactobacillus and bifida, are your gut’s IMMUNE SYSTEM. They’re like a defense force or a police unit. They keep the “bad guys” (bad bacteria & yeast) in check and prevent them from gaining a foothold.

Think about what would happen to a town or city if one day all the police disappeared.

The criminals would move in and take over.

And that’s exactly what’s happened in your gut. When you take a course of antibiotics, you're wiping out everything – the criminals AND the police. This opens doors for more bad bacteria and more yeast to get in and wreak havoc.

All drugs do is kill things. They don't build up the environment so the yeast can't get in there again once you stop taking the drugs.

Here's a good analogy for you:
Imagine a nice lake. It's got lots of fishes and birds and plants all around it & it's safe to swim in. Now imagine if some chemical company came along and dumped 50 barrels of toxic waste into this nice lake.

What happens? The lake becomes a polluted swamp. The fish die, the plants shrivel up and the birds go away. Instead you get hordes of mosquitos, ticks, biting flies and other pests.

Yeasts are like that. They're like germs. They're everywhere & they seek out environments with weakened defense systems where they can set up camp. In humans these defenses are a strong immune system & high levels of beneficial bacteria in the GI tract.

That's why the best way to get rid of yeast infections (particularly recurring ones) is to focus on building up your gut environment so Candida can't grow there anymore.

If you choose to ignore this advice & go down the pharmaceutical drug route, don't be surprised if you only get relief for a few weeks or months before Candida grows back & your symptoms return. 

And when that drug stops working & you'll go to another doctor who'll pus you on a new drug & the cycle repeats. We've seen this pattern again and again and again. . .

That's why you always want to go the natural route.

Why Natural Treatment For Candida Yeast Infections Is Superior to Drugs

Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, natural treatment allows you to ONLY target the yeast without harming your beneficial bacteria or causing "collateral damage" to your gut.

Another reason we recommend natural medicine is resistance doesn't occur with natural anti-fungals

That only happens with drugs. 

This has been confirmed many times with studies done on things like grapefruit seed extract, caprylic acid, undecenoic acid, clove, and other natural anti-fungals. It just doesn’t happen.

It happens with pharmaceutical drugs because they are synthetic. They’re only made up of one thing. They’ve got one ultra refined chemical compound with a very narrow band of action. Once Candida develops a resistance to this action, the pharmaceutical drug is done.

Candida is very adaptive.

If you only hit it with one action it will soon work out how to fool this action. And you know what happens next. The drug no longer works and the yeast comes back. And then you go back to the doctor who puts you on a a new drug and the cycle repeats again.

Natural anti-fungals are different.

They doesn’t just contain one thing. They’ve got many different natural chemicals and compounds in there that make it up. They attack Candida from many different angles so the yeast gets overwhelmed. It doesn’t know what hit it and it can’t fight back.

How to Get Rid of a Candida Yeast Infection Naturally

If you're still new to this whole Candida thing & just start getting symptoms recently (such in the last few weeks or months) – the first place you need to look at is diet.

You want to slowly change your diet & eliminate the foods Candida feeds on. 

By starving the yeast, you weaken it. This stops it from reproducing & makes it more susceptible to elimination through natural means. 

The diet we recommend is called the MEVY diet

MEVY is an acronym for meat, eggs, vegetables and yogurt. The MEVY diet is basically an anti-candida diet that's high in protein and very low in sugars. Candida loves sugar. It does not like to thrive on lean meat, blueberries, avocados, green apples, yogurt, fresh vegetables and eggs.

It’s a tasty and healthy diet. You’re not going to starve or feel deprived.

Meats generally are not favored at all by Candida.

You're not going to have a problem with fresh fish, lean beef, or free range eggs.

Just be careful not to overload your diet on red meat because that can cause constipation and clogged up bowels.

If you’re a vegan there’s plenty of other options you’ve got.

We also have a list of special high anti-candida foods you can read about in our Candida Grocery Shopping Guide PDF. These include sauerkraut, oregano, coconut, garlic, onion, cloves, and kefir, to name a few. . .

We don't need to go into all the different kinds of vegetables and fruits you can eat & which aren't allowed. 

You can learn all about that in our videos & in the pdf at the bottom of this page.

The MEVY approach works because it starves the Candida. It's a well tested diet that's been around for about 40 years. If you're like most folks you'll notice an improvement in your digestion within two to three weeks. 

Exactly how long you'll need to stay on the MEVY phase depends on the severity of your symptoms. We recommend people stay on the MEVY diet for a period of at least one month.
