What Is Candida?
Yeast and mold (mould) infections are among the most difficult to treat of human ailments. Some of them are also among the most debilitating, such as candida yeast. Candida yeast will readily grow in any moist area of the body, such as the mouth (“thrush”), groin (“jock itch”), vagina (“yeast infection”), and intestines.
Candida yeast is found naturally in the body, but is normally kept under control by friendly bacteria, such as acidophilus. But candida yeast often gets out of control following the use of antibiotics. The antibiotic kills off the friendly acidophilus and aerobic bacteria but does not affect the yeast. Without the friendly organisms such as the multiple strains of acidophilus to control it, candida grows fast.
The excess sugar of diabetes will also provide food for yeast, causing it to proliferate. Diabetics are therefore especially prone to this type of problem.
The intestines form perfect breeding grounds for candida. If the condition becomes bad enough, eventually the candida irritates an area of the intestine so much that their toxins penetrate the intestinal wall into the blood stream, where they can break down the immune system. Soon the candida infection itself passes through the intestinal wall and the white blood cells are consumed in their struggle to control the infection, further destroying the immune system. Thus, candida is a common contributor to many diseases and conditions, such as AIDS, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, colds, flus, etc.. Almost all disease and health problems are greatly aggravated by candida.
When Candida escapes your gut and enters your bloodstream, it goes through a metamorphosis, converting itself into a fungus. It is then protected by a powerful armor called a “chittin layer” similar to a turtle or an insect with an exo-skeleton.
Candida Albicans is a fungal yeast. A full blown Candida infection could be robbing you of your life. It is a silent killer that sucks your energy, controls how you feel and even how you think.
Candida is always present in the human gut; everyone has Candida to some extent. The gut also has natural bacteria that feed on the yeast and keep levels in control to prevent it from becoming a problem, but modern antibiotics kill the natural bacteria, which then leads to Candida overgrowth and many related health problems including Cancer.
Acid is the real problem, as Candida thrives in a high acid environment and the bacteria that keeps it under control thrives in a low acid environment.
Acid also leads to leaky gut syndrome and most people today have small pinholes in their intestinal walls (hyperpermeable intestines) that allow food particles, fecal material and Candida to enter directly into the bloodstream. This is how systemic Candida infections get started.
To permanently solve this problem, diet should be improved, ShopFreeMart Immunize and Activate should be taken on a daily basis and steps should be taken to alkalyze the body in order that the gut may heal and prevent future leaking of Candida into the bloodstream. (See Immunize)
Once the yeast finds its way into the bloodstream, it spreads throughout the entire body, and once it is outside the gut, it no longer has the friendly bacteria as its predator to keep it in check.
Normally, your immune system would identify and attack this intruder, but once it is loose in your blood-stream, it converts itself into fungus that is protected with a hard outer shell that is Impossible for Your Immune System to Penetrate.
The real problem is the Fungus is protected by an Armour-Like Cellular Membrane.
It’s called: Chitin, or Chitin layer. Imagine the fungus is wearing a suit of armour that your immune system cannot punch through. This is why Candida is so hard to get rid of! There are plenty of expensive Candida treatments and even strict Candida diets that claim to get rid of Candida, however, at best they may only temporarily keep the fungal growth under control.
Candida fungus under microscope. Candida forms stringy mycelium like connections.. it almost looks like it has it’s own nervous system.
The fungus can stay dormant in your body for years, and the moment you slip up with your diet even for just a single day, you can end up with a full-blown systemic Candida problem. Avoiding sugars, wheat, dairy and other acid forming foods is advised at least until the Candida is completely under control.
Candida loves acid and stress creates acid, so the same thing can happen if you have a stressful week. Learning to remain calm in the face of problems can help keep your Candida under control.
Candida contributes to the symptoms of every disease.
Candida is present in every disease and many of the symptoms that you experience are directly related to this fungus. The difference between different symptoms depends where the fungus resides in your body.
Once Candida gets out of the gut due to leaky gut syndrome, it is now loose in your blood-stream and can go any place including the brain. Candida is one of the few things that can actually cross the blood-brain barrier.
When Candida gets started in the brain and sets up it’s mycelium (mushroom) like network, you can expect to experience symptoms like depression, anxiety, foggy thinking and loss of memory.
In fact, a quick search on various medical websites will show over 100 different symptoms that can be expressed in someone diagnosed with Candida.
Could it be that Candida is the “real” name of all diseases and is the thing we should be treating, no matter what is the diagnosis?
There are several symtoms that the medical community has already recognized as being a fungal or yeast in infection and the initial stages often involve the gut, mouth and urinary tract.
The Most Common Of These Are:
- Sore Throat
- Ear Ache
Symptoms are not limited to, but include:
White Candida albicains fungus in the back of the throat and back of the tongue
Thrush and skin infections are
common symptoms of Candida
As more studies are done on Candida infection, it is being realized that this yeast is a serious contributor to many illnesses that now include:
Fungal infections between toes and toe-nails
is also a common Candida related symptom.
The Connection Between Candida and Cancer
People who have Cancer always have fungus and those who have toenail fungus are likely to end up with Cancer. A friend of mine who had yellow toenail fungus started drinking a gallon of distilled water daily to which he added Pure Silver. Three months later he reported that his toenails were now like those of a teenager.
I did not treat this individual, so I cannot verify what he told me, but I can see no harm in trying such a thing and I would suggest adding some ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate to the distilled water to help improve hydration of all of the cells of the body.
Hundreds of years ago the idea that the plague and disease in general could be spread by tiny little micro organisms was unbelievable. It was only through the work and determination of dedicated scientists such as Dr. Otto Warburg (Nobel Prize in Medicine) and Dr. Gunther Enderlein (the dark field microscopy blood test is named after him) who ignored the laughter and began searching for the evidence for their theories. As early as 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg was awarded a Nobel Prize for his research on cancer.
Dr. Warburg’s research states that “cancer cannot live in a pH of 7.0” Another way of saying this is, “you will never get cancer if you keep your pH at 7.0 or slightly above.”
Dr. Otto Warburg in his book, The Metabolism of Tumors, stated that the primary cause of cancer is the replacement of oxygen in the respiratory cell chemistry by the fermentation of sugar. The growth of cancer cells is initiated by a fermentation process, which creates an anerobic environment, starving your cells for oxygen and allowing bacteria, viruses and fungi to grow out of control.
What Dr. Warburg was describing is a classic picture of acidic conditions.
Just like overworked muscle cells manufacture lactic acid by-products as waste, cancerous cells spill lactic acid and other acidic compounds throughout your body causing an acid pH.
The American Medical Association backed by the pharmaceutical drug industry boycotted Dr. Warburg from entering the United States. They also put a squelch on the media to prevent Dr. Warburg’s work from becoming widely known and because they control everything that is printed in the modern medical textbooks, no mention of Dr. Warburg is found there either. This was done to protect the money they make as a result of people getting cancer.
Shortly after Dr. Warburg’s Nobel Prize, Dr. Enderlein from Germany (mentined above) was commissioned by Adolph Hitler to keep the animals at the Berlin Zoo healthy. For many years, Dr. Enderlein took blood and tissue samples from healthy, sick, dead and dying animals. Thousands of tests were performed on these samples and the simple yet amazing discovery was that each group of animals had a different pH range. So we have two German scientists that conclusively linked pH with health and disease and each set up a comparison to indicate what constitutes a healthy pH.
This is a fascinating story with interesting details, which are obviously too exhaustive for this short report. I will say however, that Dr. Enderlein discovered a microscopic living organism present in every cell of the body, which he named Mucor Racemos Frescens (MRF). This organism is resistant to the highest heat and the coldest cold and to every drug, chemical and acid known to man, with the exception of Silver. MRF takes on different life forms depending upon the pH of the cell and antibiotics only cause it to mutate and reproduce itself more quickly.
My personal conclusion is that what Dr. Enderlein called Mucor Racemos Frescens, we now know as Candida.
When pH is a normal 7.0 – 7.4, Candida is not only controlled, but it creates vitamins and health giving substances for the body. As the pH turns acidic, Candida mutates and starts killing your cells. When you die, this same organism is what decomposes your body and turns it back to dirt.
For a time the work of Dr. Enderlein was published and found in American medical textbooks. I personally saw this information in an older American Medical texbook, but this information has since been removed and is no longer found in modern medical text, so although pH was taught in medicine for a number of decades, it has never been practiced.
The same testing that Dr. Enderlein did on animals was conducted decades later on humans at the federally owned Idaho National Engineering Laboratory. And after spending millions of dollars and using thousands of samples and much more sophisticated, state of the art equipment than Dr. Enderlein had access to, his research was confirmed!
One of the research scientists involved with that project told me that they verified everything Dr. Enderlein had discovered. I talked at length with this talented Biochemist and what was most puzzling and disturbing to him was the fact that this project was classified “Top Secret” and was never reported to the public or published in any medical journals.
I received this information in great confidence only after promising never to reveal his name, because the scientists involved in this research were warned never to breathe a word about this project and he told me that there were some who did that mysteriously disappeared.
Today more and more evidence comes to light from scientists all around the world about the connection between Candida albicans and cancer.
Italian oncologist (cancer doctor), Tullio Simoncini, has long been an advocate of the fungal hypothesis in regards to cancer. Dr Simoncini is well aware of the epidemic of Candida in the world that is going untreated. He believes that the fungus is underestimated as so little is understood about it. His research began when he decided that there was a strange connection with all cancers in that they all behave in the same way despite them occurring in the widest variety of locations in the body. He then began to search for a common denominator within all these different cancers and believed he had found it when he saw that most cancers appear white in color. These white masses are fungi – white, just like Candida albicans! (in Latin, Candida albicans’ literally means ‘glowing white’)
Dr. Tullio Simoncini, a strong advocate of the fungal theory in relation to cancer.
The presence of Candida fungi in all tumors is nothing surprising to the medical world.
The ‘party line’ answer from most cancer doctors is that Candida is an opportunistic organism that finds root within the existing tumors.
However, Dr. Simonicini and others strongly disagree, because when you start looking at how Candida turns into fungus, and what happens afterward, the picture gets pretty clear.
Candida makes a sugary alcohol substance as a by-product of its existence, which leads to anaerobic conditions, creating the perfect environment in which to proliferate further. Fungi are anaerobes, which means they die in the presence of oxygen.
They move around inside your body and colonize an area of your breast or prostate and cancer thrives in situations where oxygen levels are low.
We can follow the pattern of development of Candida yeast to fungus to cancer below:
1. First the Candida fungi roots itself deep within the various tissues and organs.
2. The fungus then multiplies; the body then responds by attempting to encyst the fungal colonies; the outcome being the formation of neoplasias; a tumor forms around the fungus.
3. Growth both in the surrounding tissue and other areas of the body (metastasis).
4. Progressive exhaustion of the body with consequential total body invasion.
In plain English it means that the Candida Fungus invades an area of the body (usually a weaker organ) and creates for itself a perfect environment in which it can thrive, which in turn causes tumors to be formed, which leads to mutation of cells and cancer.
Could it really be that simple? If it were, then this would mean we were on the verge of a revolution. It would mean that it’s possible to prevent Cancer.
If the works of doctors Warburg and Enderlein had been published and taught in our schools in the United States, every child would understand how to protect themselves from cancer by simply keeping Candida Albicans in check.
There are Plenty of Methods Like Diets or Antifunguals, but They Simply Don’t Work.
There are plenty of solutions out there for Candida, however, like I said earlier, they do not deal with the root of the problem because nobody is stopping the Candida from entering the bloodstream due to leaky gut and once it gets out it is hard to kill because it is covered by an armour-like chitin layer.
The chitin layer is similar to the hard exo-skeletons of insects like cockroaches.
This makes it impossible for your immune system to attack the fungus.
If you’ve ever had an insect problem in your home such as ants or cockroaches, then you might have an idea of what you’re actually up against.
Except that you can poison cockroaches or ants, but you can’t use the same approach within your body or you would die.
Cockroaches and many other insects have a chitin-layer exo-skeleton, just like Candida fungus.
Are Anti-fungal Medications Safe?
If your doctor has diagnosed Candida then he will probably prescribe anti-fungal medications.
The only answer is to get to the root of the problem.
Anti-fungal medications can be extremely stressful for your liver and kidneys.
There IS an easy, safe way to bypass the Candida’s chitin layer and wipe it out!
New Study Proves Pure Silver Decimates Fungal Pathogens; Even Superior to Popular Anti-Fungal Drugs
A recent study conducted by the Department of Microbiology at Kyungpook National University in Daegu, Korea, and published in the prestigious Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology, demonstrates that Pure Silver is one of the most powerful and effective natural anti-fungal agents in the world.
The authors of this study tested silver nanoparticles against the Candida species of fungus (the chief culprit in women’s vaginal yeast infections and the more sinister chronic candidiasis syndrome) as well as the Trichophyton species (the most common cause of athlete’s foot, jock itch and ringworm, as well as hair and nail fungal infections in humans).
What they discovered is that the silver particles “showed potent activity against clinical isolates and ATCC strains” of the fungal pathogens.
What this means is silver was equally effective against lab-grown strains of the fungal pathogens and strains isolated from infected specimens.
Treating Fungal Infections With Silver
It is now well known that many nasty cases of dandruff are actually topical fungal skin infections in disguise. I personally use and recommend ShopFreeMart PureSilver Concentrate and what is not yet well known is that you can put a dropper full of ShopFreeMart Pure Silver on your scalp each morning after drying your hair from the shower, which will eliminate such topical stealth fungal infections in a matter of days!
Fungal infections of the inner ear can likewise be cleared up in only a few short days simply by putting a few drops of ShopFreeMart PureSilver into the ears each day for several days in a row, allowing it to seep down into the ear for six to ten minutes before draining it back out.
Likewise, fungal infections of the eyes can be stopped practically overnight, simply by putting 1-2 drops of Pure Silver directly into the eyes several times a day. Similarly, Pink Eye can also be eradicated (sometimes overnight) using the same technique. And it works great for styes too, which many doctors believe are simply staph infections in the eye.
Thrush in the mouth, which is simply a Candida “yeast” or fungal infection often characterized by a white tongue, can be rapidly cleared up by using ShopFreeMart Pure Silver. Simply swish 1-3 droppers full around in your mouth two or three times a day, for a minimum of six minutes each time. You can then swallow afterwards, or simply spit it out if you prefer.
Do this especially after any meal in which sugary products have been consumed. You’ll find the “thrush” symptoms diminishing within a few short days, and eradicated within a week or two.
Athlete’s foot and stubborn toenail fungal infections can also be wiped out by using ShopFreeMart PureSilver instead of potentially harmful antifungal drugs that have been known to harm the liver. The difficulty may be in finding a suitable glass or plastic dish to which you can pour a couple inches of water and add 1-3 droppers of ShopFreeMart Pure Silver into it. Then soak your feet for about 30 minutes while watching television or reading a book.
Athlete’s foot can be eradicated in a few short days following this simple method. But stubborn toenail fungal infections may take up to three weeks, or even a bit longer. Nevertheless, you’ll soon notice nice, clear new nails growing in where the old yellow or gray-green infected nails were.
Trim the old infected toenail away as it grows out naturally, and let the beautiful new, uninfected nail grow in normally.
Granted, the above-described procedure can be a bit expensive if you are using commercially prepared colloidal silver products purchased from a health food store or through an internet source because of amount you have to use in order to be effective due to the weak dillutions of these products.
The other option, (and I highly recommend it) is to put 3 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver into a gallon of pure water and drink the gallon of distilled water throughout the day. This will kill the Candida systemically. For those people who have serious fungal infections, they may want to begin with a weaker dilution for the first few days so as to kill the Candida more slowly as the dying Candida can actually make you extremely ill.
Be sure to drink plenty of distilled water with FreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate added to help wash the dead Candida out of your system.
Note: I recommend using a non-metal spoon for mixing ShopFreeMart PureSilver in order to prevent any dielectric activity with the silver.
It may take up to three months of drinking Silver and water to kill the Candida throughout your system and even after getting rid of your toenail fungus and other Candida infections, you may want to continue adding 1 or more droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver to a gallon of water daily as a maintenance dose to prevent future infections.
And the best part of using PureSilver is it is completely safe for your liver and kidneys!
And to prevent further innoculation of Candida into your bloodstream, be sure to take ShopFreeMart Immunize, Activate and Siaga on a daily basis. Using a good probiotic can also be helpful to controling yeast colonies.
What About Antibiotics?
The Journal of the American Medical Association (Feb 18th 2004; 291; 827-35) has reported a study on 10,000 women over a 17 year period. Women who only took antibiotics one time had a 1.5 times increase in the occurance of breast canceer over those who took none and if they took 25 plus doses during that period of time the risk of getting cancer doubled.
Few people understand the role of Beneficial Bacteria in the human body and that includes doctors and medical experts.
Beneficial bacteria are crucial to the fight against cancer. They are now proven in research to direct a strong immune system, they digest foreign microbes, yeasts and candida every night while you sleep, and they help release nourishment and essential cancer preventing and cancer fighting compounds from your food. Without them, you are simply not fully equipped to prevent cancer or beat cancer. IT IS THAT SERIOUS.
Some beneficial bacteria even produce sodium butyrate, which causes cancer cells to self-destruct. Yes, Beneficial bacteria are that important, but Drugs and antibiotics kill them off reducing your natural ability to beat cancer. Multi-strained probiotics can at least replace some of the lost billions of your crucial little helpers.
Apart from the fact that antibiotics may well be toxic to brain cells, they also kill many strains of bacteria in the body, including the ones you need; the friendly ones in the gut.
Friendly bacteria? Youve probably heard of acidophilus, or bifidobacteria? Your gut actually contains about 800 different strains, 400 of which have been identified. This is how important they are.
1. They represent about 85 per cent of your immune system – they stimulate your immune system to produce antibodies.
2. They help to cut up your foods and release important (and anti-cancer) vitamins like biotin, folic acid, B-12 and vitamin K.
3. They help you eliminate carcinogenic hormones and chemicals like estrogen, nitrosamines, cadmium and mercury.
4. They even produce an anti-cancer chemical from your foods.
5. They thrive on whole foods, fibers candida albicans and microbes.
Antibiotics kill most of the bacteria in the body, including the ones you need. At night, friendly bacteria can digest roughly 2.2 kilograms of yeasts and microbes for you.
They are your first line of defence. They have inhabited our bodies since the beginning of time. They help us, and in return we give them a nice cosy place to live. Except we don’t anymore. We have broken our lifetime deal with them. We no longer feed them their favourite fiber-rich, whole foods. And we eat too many sugars, drink alcohol and chlorinated water.
We eat foods that contain antibiotics, and most people have taken antibiotics at some time during their lifetime. We polute the precious water that our cells live in with acids from poor diet and stress.
These friendly bacteria thrive in alkaline bodies, but they die in acidic conditions. Candida is also the natural enemy of friendly bacteria, and to make matters worse we feed their enemies. Candida loves sugar and dairy!
Stress and poor diet can eliminate most friendly bacteria in just a few days, so you are wise anyway to take a daily probiotic.
A good probiotic can help supply your body with necessary friendly bacteria.
Candida Is Cancer?
Candida expert Chris Woollams says: I recently went to a cancer clinic in the USA, and to the Dove Clinic in the UK. At both I talked to the nurses.
They were unanimous. Every cancer patient they see, man or woman, has bad candida. Whether it is breast cancer, prostate cancer or any other cancer.
Cancer Treatments Make Matters Worse!
Steroids and chemotherapy both heighten the effect of Candida, worsening the cancer cell feeding. Its like throwing babies to the sharks.
The prestigious US magazine Contemporary Oncology as early as April 1993 said: Cancer patients undergoing radio or chemotherapy did not finally succumb to the cancer itself, but to an infestation of candida albicans.
What Can Be Done?
Another Candida expert, Gerald Green believes that even terminal cancer patients can be saved if the root cause is candida. He says that sufferers must immediately:
Eliminate The Following From Your Diet
All cows milk products: Cheese, yoghurt, whey and all cows milk derivatives which are everywhere in processed food.
Yeast products: Alcohol, bread, Marmite, Oxo, Bovril, vinegars, mushrooms, processed and smoked fish and meats.
All sugar products: Honey, fructose, lactose, glucose, dextrose and sweeteners like Nutrisweet and Canderel.
Nearly all fruit: Overripe fruits are full of sugar and yeasts. Plus vegetables like courgettes, pumpkin, squash, marrow. High sugar root vegetables: Carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes, beetroots, (maximum 1 per day).
Refined wheat, rice, pasta, fizzy soft drinks, fruit juices and squash, biscuits, pastries, pies and corn.
Avoid all pulses, processed meats, high salt foods and all hydrogenated vegetable oils too.
His sweetener of choice is Stevia, a herb 100 times sweeter than sugar but a natural anti-fungal agent.
He recommends astragalus and echinacea pIus 1 gm vitamin C daily to boost the immune system.
Good Food Choices
Eat Plenty of the Following Foods
Bell peppers (sweet peppers)
Hot chilli peppers
Fats (In moderation)
Granose sunflower margarine or
Tomor kosher margarine (both these margarines should be available at your local health food store)
Organic Coconut oil
Drink no less than eight glasses of water each day.
(Distilled water mixed with Hydration Drops)
Juice from 2-4 lemons daily mixed with water (unsweetened).
Herbal teas are acceptable (unsweetened).
Free range eggs
Fresh fish and seafood (No longer safe from Pacific Ocean)
Organic lamb and veal
Organic Poultry: chicken, turkey (particularly skinless white meat)
Sheeps milk/cheeses (dilute sheeps milk 50/50 with water and it will taste the same as cows milk)
What Is A Healing Crisis?
Many people who have a serious Candida infection find that when the Candida start dying off that they feel worse before they feel better.
This is completely normal and is known as ‘Jarisch-Herxheimer’ or a healing crisis. See Herxheimer Reaction.
What is basically happening is that ShopFreeMart PureSilver is doing its job and destroying the fungus, because although the chitin layer surrounding the fungus is impervious to drugs and antviral compounds, it has no natural protection, nor can it develop an immunity to Pure Silver.
This rapid killing off of the Candida means that toxins are released into the body which can make you feel a bit puny.
This is only temporary and as soon as the ShopFreeMart PureSilver has killed a majority of the fungi, you will be feeling a LOT better than you did before, and that can happen as early as just a few days!
The affect of Candida die off can also be minimised by increased water intake and making sure the bowels move two or three times a day. Drink distilled water that is treated with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate to get the maximum removal of the dead Candida and to get your cells well hydrated on the inside.
ShopFreeMart Immunize and a good probiotic are highly recommended. Not only do they help you to have normal and regular bowel movements, but together they replace friendly bacteria in your bowel that were naturally there at birth, which help to digest your food and control the overgrowth of Candida.
You also need to support the liver as it is the major organ that defends against disease and a healthy liver can quickly clean out the millions of dead Candida bodies as well as their excrement. ShopFreeMart PureCopper, PureGold, Siaga, PureMag and D-Cal all support the liver in its important function of cleansing toxins from the body.
