                                                                                     Candida

































I normally recommend placing a glass of water on your bathroom sink the night before. The next
morning spit in the glass of water. It may take up to an hour before signs of Candida start showing up.

Getting a Nutritional
Hair Mineral Analysis can help determine the cause of your Candida. Most often
poor digestion, too much SUGAR, Copper Toxicity and toxic Metals are associated with Candida.

Two points should be understood with regard to the above list of signs and symptoms of Candida overgrowth.  
First, while all of the symptoms listed are definitely seen in Candida patients and evidence indicates Candida
causes or strongly contributes to the development of these problems, there are other contributing factors that
can also bring about some of these problems (such as mercury or other metal toxicity, consistent excess
electromagnetic field exposure, underlying viral infections, petrochemical exposure, etc.).  Second, treatment
for Candida alone will usually bring about significant improvement in these symptoms, but will not be adequate in
all cases to restore health.  Often additional treatments aimed at improving liver, adrenal or thyroid function, or
correcting immune and allergic problems, are necessary to regain health.
