Introduction

There is probably more misinformation about this subject, both in medical
and nutritional circles, than almost anything I can think of. Books have been
written on the subject. Pharmaceuticals have been developed, often with
many serious side effects. Yet, in spite of all this effort, little is understood
about this annoying and sometimes violent medical problem.

Since this condition is impossible to detect by medical testing, it is often
overlooked and even misdiagnosed, creating a ‘silent’ epidemic. Just how
common is this condition? It has been estimated that as many as 60 percent
of all women have or have had a problem with yeast infections and localized
candida overgrowth at some time in their lives. Roughly 5 to 7 million
women have systemic candidiasis and most of them don’t even know it.

Their symptoms of fatigue, indigestion, muscle weakness, bloating, loss of
sexual desire, menstrual irregularities, and mood swings, to name but a few,
are accepted as ‘part of getting older’ or ‘just part of life’. Nothing could be
further from the truth! And what about men can they develop this condition?
You bet! In fact, it is often the men, who carry the candida organism, who
are re-infecting their wives and girlfriends! Fortunately, we have equal
success in treating males, which is often necessary in order to ensure that the
women remain free of this condition.

Often women have taken round after round of drugs from their doctors,
trying to get some relief. After several attempts, the doctor frequently
suggests psychotherapy, thinking that the symptoms must be ‘all in her
head’. For tens of thousands of others, they turn to the now famous ‘candida
or yeast diets’. While these eating programs may relieve the symptoms of
yeast infection, they certainly do not eliminate it. We have many, many
women calling us every month, saying how they have followed the ‘yeast
diet’ for months or even years and yet when they go off the diet for even just
one meal, their symptoms return in stealth. This proves that candida diets
don’t work.

In the past, I have had the privilege of working with some of the leading
alternative hospitals in the world. During that time, we developed a method
of not only controlling the candida organism, but completely eliminating the
problem! This was incredible news for the many women who suffered,
sometimes for years, with ongoing or reoccurring yeast infections.
The program, as outlined in this booklet, has been tried and tested. It has
brought relief to literally thousands of women in the past ten years. How
long does it take? Well, that’s the good news! Unlike the so-called ‘candida’
or ‘yeast’ diets, which never actually cure the problem, this program will
virtually eliminate the cause of the condition, and, if you follow the
prevention steps at the end of the program, you will likely never have to deal
with this condition again. Our program is about 8 weeks in length. This
length of treatment is usually sufficient to take care of most problems. In
cases of advanced systemic candidiasis, wherein the organism has invaded
deep into soft tissue or even into the brain, a multiple series of Flushes may
be called for.

So, if you suffer from localized yeast infections, candidiasis of the colon and
small intestine, or if you have advanced to systemic candidiasis, with all of
its potentially debilitating effects, take heart, there is hope!
What is Candida?

Formerly called monilia albicans, candida albicans is a small budding
fungus found naturally in the intestinal tract of all people. While this yeast is
normal, is appears to be nonessential. When this yeast overgrows, it, along
with other yeast-like fungi, account for the major cause of most mycotic
infections.

The reason why the candida organism does not proliferate within the body,
is because it is kept in balance by the friendly bacteria, which also inhabit
the intestinal tract. These friendly bacteria are many and are often referred to
as the acidophilus bacteria. By literally using the candida yeast as food, the
acidophilus bacteria maintain a healthy balance within the lower digestive
tract of the human body.

What Causes Candida Overgrowth?
As mentioned, it is the friendly acidophilus bacteria that keep the candida in
proper balance therefore, anything that damages or destroys the acidophilus
in the intestines can lead to candida overgrowth.

The most common cause of acidophilus destruction and candida overgrowth
is the improper use of antibiotics. Every time antibiotic therapy is used, the
drug is unable to distinguish between the good and bad bacteria,
indiscriminately killing them all. Therefore, every time antibiotic therapy is
administered, it is essential that the good bacteria be re-implanted into the
intestinal tract immediately after the antibiotic therapy is finished. Since
most antibiotics are given by mouth, the healthy intestinal bacteria are
among the first to be destroyed. Once we have destroyed the natural enemy
of the candida yeast, that organism will be allowed to explosively multiply,
without control, further unbalancing the delicate synergy necessary for a
healthy intestine.

Other major factors in candidiasis include the use of birth control pills and
steroid hormones as found in many pharmaceuticals. Both of these groups of
drugs, by means not fully understood, destroy healthy acidophilus, thereby
setting up the scenario for candida overgrowth.

Further factors, which can affect the chemistry of the intestines, but to a
lesser extent, would be a prolonged diet of over-cooked, over-processed,
lifeless foods. In the absence of the natural enzymes present in raw foods,
the body must work overtime to produce these enzymes in order to digest
foods and keep them from putrefying in the body. Over time, this can cause
a depletion of not only enzymes but of acidophilus as well.

How Do I know If I Have Candida Overgrowth?
One of the first myths about this condition that needs to be dispelled is the
fact that there is no medical test for candida. I suppose I should say rather,
that there is a test but it is worthless. Since we all have candida yeast in our
intestines, we would all test positive for the organism. The only real way to
determine if you have candida overgrowth or if it has progressed to systemic
candidiasis, is by an analysis of the symptoms present. These, together with
the history of antibiotic use/abuse or birth control medication, can frequently
establish the presence of a problem. The self-test found later in this booklet
can help you determine if you may have a yeast overgrowth problem and to
what extent that problem may exist.

One of the first signs of an overgrowth of the candida yeast organism is
gastrointestinal discomfort or disorder. Now, I realize that these problems
can be caused by poor diet, lack of nutrition, etc., but if the problems are not
relieved by taking a multi-enzyme product, or if they are severe in nature, it
is a good sign that intestinal candida may be out of control. These symptoms
may include any combination of bloating, diarrhea, constipation, alternating
diarrhea and constipation, feelings of fullness after eating very little, burning
stool, lower intestinal gas, cramping, and an itching of the rectum.
Once this overgrowth has begun to take over the chemistry of the digestive
tract, it is now in an excellent position to break out of the intestines and
invade other parts of the body.

The first of such sites within the body are the moist mucosal tissues
surrounding the external anus. One of the reasons why localized yeast
infections occur more often in women than men is simple physiology. The
vaginal tract, the most common site for localized yeast infections, is but a
short journey from the anal opening. Yeast spores have little difficulty
traveling that far. Since the vaginal area is also dark, moist and mucosal, the
candida quickly sets up house and starts to grow. Because of this
physiology, the ratio of genital candida overgrowth is females, as opposed to
males, is about 8 to 3.

In females, the symptoms of a localized vaginal yeast infection include
burning, itching, irritation and often considerable, discomfort. In males,
localized yeast infections frequently manifest in what is often called ‘jock
itch’. As many men can attest, this is often very difficult to eliminate, as the
yeast rapidly multiplies in the moist folds of skin, which are rarely exposed
to the air.

These conditions can be very annoying and often uncomfortable, but they
will not likely threaten your life or cause severe debilitation. This is because,
even though the yeast has escaped the gastro-intestinal tract, it is still
classified as a localized infection and has not yet become systemic in nature.
As this condition continues uncontrolled, the candida yeast can move up the
genitourinary tract and enter the blood stream. Once in the blood, the yeast
can take up residence in almost any area of the body wherein moist mucous
membranes provide a friendly site. This route into the internal system of the
body primarily occurs in the female since their genitourinary tract is much
shorter than that of the male. When males develop a yeast infection of their
urinary tract it often results in considerable discomfort, even to the point of
forming a coating of white yeast on the head of the penis. The most common
method for males to contract systemic candidiasis is through oral sex with a
female who has a vaginal yeast infection. The male can actually inhale the
yeast spores into his lungs or sinuses, the two most common systemic sites
found in men. Once this has occurred, even if the woman succeeds in curing
her vaginal yeast infection, she frequently becomes re-infected by her male
partner.

Another possible route of transmission for yeast to become systemic is
through a compromised intestinal lining. Those suffering from colitis or
diverticulitis frequently develop systemic candidiasis as the yeast spores
pass through the intestinal lining into the bloodstream.

Once the candida organism sets up house in various sites within the body
such as the lungs, sinuses, and even the brain, the fungus can mutate and
develop into more virulent strains, making it difficult for the body to
manage.

As the yeast continues to grow, it gives off toxins as a result of its
metabolism. These toxins form free radicals within the body and it is the free
radical proliferation that rapidly advances this condition from merely
annoying to debilitating and often life threatening.

As the toxins and free radicals build up in the internal system of the body,
they place an ever-increasing load upon the immune system, eventually
leading to immune exhaustion. As the immune system weakens, the sufferer
becomes more and more susceptible to other infectious agents such as
bacteria and virus.

Indications of Systemic Candidiasis
An early sign of systemic candidiasis is abnormal or excessive fatigue. Like
many of the symptoms of candidiasis, fatigue can be caused by many
imbalances within the body. But if you have had a checkup and everything
seems okay, candida is a likely suspect. The fatigue produced by systemic
candidiasis can start out very slowly and increase slowly over months of
time, so much so that you hardly notice or remember when it occurred. If
you go to your doctor, he will run a battery of tests and they will all likely
come back indicating that you are healthier than even he is! As the condition
progresses, you will become more and more fatigued and irritability will set
in. This frustration can often lead to difficulties with other family members
as your physical condition continues to worsen.

The next marker or indicator for systemic yeast is a feeling of disconnection
with your surroundings. Some call it ‘spaciness’. Many of the patients we
see at our research centers describe this feeling as being detached or ‘out of
it’. As this worsens, sufferers say that they have difficulty in remembering
things and that their ability to concentrate lessens. After time, making
decisions become much more difficult as well, and you just want to,
sometimes, shut yourself off from the world because everything is too much
to deal with.

The third marker that the systemic candidiasis is spreading is the onset of
what is often referred to as adult onset allergies. These are distinguished by
the fact that you likely never had any allergies before. They can come on
rapidly and you will find yourself unable to tolerate smells, chemicals, and
some foods. Even everyday household items such as soaps, perfumes and
colognes, which you may have used for many years, will become almost
intolerable. Sadly, many patients undergo treatment for allergies and see no
relief. This is because the symptoms are not actually allergies in the first
place, but rather the reaction to the altering of the chemistry of the internal
body.

The next phase of this process is what researchers call the ‘Universal
Reactor Phenomenon’. The allergy-like symptoms that bothered you before
have now become so severe and so widespread that it seems that everything
is bothering you. Most foods now give you indigestion, gas and especially
bloating. You cannot wear any cosmetic with a scent and many of your
favorite clothes now give you a rash. Upon analysis, you find that you are
having less and less good days and more and more bad days.

The last phase of systemic candidiasis is the altering of brain chemistry to
the point where mental deterioration takes place. Patients in this advanced
state suffer from delusions, anxiety, depression, violent behavior and even
thoughts of suicide. Toxic overload and free radical proliferation have now
so infested brain tissue that the delicate chemistry of the brain can no longer
be maintained.

Now that you better understand the symptoms produced by candida
overgrowth, your real problems can begin. Well-meaning friends, doctors
and others will try and tell you how they have handled their yeast infections.
They will tell you about the ‘yeast diets’, the drugs – often with serious side
effects, and they will tell you that you just may ‘have to learn to live with it’.
Let’s take a look at some of these myths concerning yeast infections and
systemic candidiasis so that you may better understand our program for
eliminating this problem, not merely controlling it.

Several years ago a medical doctor by the name of Dr Crook, wrote a book
based on the work of another physician, Dr. Truss. In this book, he told of
the severity of candidiasis, the almost epidemic number of women and many
men who were suffering from this condition, and the benefits from using
anti-fungal, anti-yeast drugs, together, with a ‘yeast free’ diet. While the
program was only mildly successful, it did make the health care industry
aware of the extent of this potentially debilitating condition.

Today we know that the drugs are only effective in very limited
circumstances. We know that the so-called candida diet only helps to reduce
the severity of the symptoms but does nothing to eliminate the problem.
Sadly, through these myths, many women have suffered from candidiasis for
years and have never received the relief desired.

The first problem is with the use of drug therapy for candida. Drugs such as
Nystatin are only effective in the intestines. Nystatin will kill off yeast
overgrowth in the gut, but breaks down to nearly ineffective anywhere else
in the body. Nyzoral is somewhat effective in cases of systemic candida
overgrowth but the potential price to be paid through using this drug is
severe. In consulting the Physician’s Desk Reference, we find that Nyzoral
comes with a very strong warning as to its toxicity. Prolonged use of this
classification of medications can produce irreversible liver damage and in
some cases fatal chemical reactions.

The next issue is that of the so-called ‘yeast diets’. We routinely have many,
many women consult our Research Institute, seeking help for their ongoing
yeast-related problems. Many of these patients have been following the
yeast/candida diets, some of them for years. In virtually every case these
patients tell of a reduction of some of their symptoms when on such diets,
but should they go off the diet for even one meal, their symptoms return
with a vengeance. This proves that the diets really don’t work. Remember,
you don’t eat candida. It is a naturally occurring organism found in all
humans. What you eat will not cause candida overgrowth and what you
avoid will not take the problem away.

In discussing diet it is important to mention that a diet high in sugars or
refined carbohydrates can exacerbate the symptoms of candidiasis since, to
some extent, the yeast can feed off of these refined sugar foods. This does
not mean that a candidiasis sufferer cannot have an occasional sweat treat.
They really do not need to limit their intake of these foods any more than
anyone else wishing to maintain general good health.

On the subject of diet and candidiasis, please remember: Eating or not
Eating any Food Will Not Cause or Eliminate Candidiasis!
In an attempt to find natural methods of treating this virulent condition,
many women and men have tried the so-called alternative immunestimulating
products. These frequently contain such things as Pau D’Arco,
Goldenseal, Echinacea, Garlic and Caprylic Acid. While these substances
have proven very useful in increasing immune function, they will not
destroy the candida organism and eliminate the excessive overgrowth. We
will frequently use an immune enhancement/nourishing combination in our
overall treatment program, but it is essential to completely kill the candida in
order to conquer this condition.

As we said before, there is no medical test to determine if you have
candidiasis or to what extent this condition may or may not have become
systemic. Blood tests reveal the presence of antibodies, which means that
your body is fighting the yeast. The best test for candidiasis is based upon
the symptoms that it causes and their degree of severity. While many of the
symptoms of candidiasis can also be caused by other problems, if they have
been eliminated or if the number of symptoms is high, you can be
reasonably assured that some form of yeast overgrowth is contributing to
their cause.

Determining the Presence of Candidiasis
The following two tests will help you determine if yeast overgrowth is the
likely cause of your problems. Further, it will help us determine whether
your candidiasis is localized or has progressed to the much more harmful
systemic phase.

Score for this section: ____________

Add up the grand total of all three tests and compare with the results below.
Scores of over 180 in women or 140 in men: Yeast-connected heath
problems, likely systemic in nature are almost certainly present.
Scores of over 120 in women or 90 in men: Localized candidiasis is very
likely.

Scores of over 60 in women or 40 in men: Yeast related problems are
possibly, contributing to your overall problem
Scores of less than 60 in women or 40 in men: Yeast problems are less likely
to be at the cause of your symptoms.

Armed with the results of this very accurate test, you can determine the
degree of yeast involvement in your health concerns. With that in mind, let’s
discuss how you can rid yourself of candidiasis and even systemic
candidiasis once and for all.

Controlling and Eliminating Candidiasis & Systemic Candidiasis
The following program, which we have been successfully using at our
Institute Centers around the world, for over 10 years, not only will control
the symptoms of candida overgrowth but actually destroy the candida,
thereby eliminating the problem completely. The program consists of a
three- phase approach beginning by safely destroying the candida organism.
The second phase consists of supporting and nourishing the immune system
and lastly, we will be re-implanting the healthy bacteria to ensure a sound
and balanced environment in the intestinal tract once again.
In observing the candida organism and in fact, all yeast and fungus, we find
that they are anaerobic in nature. This means that they do not survive in the
presence of concentrated oxygen. Hydrogen peroxide, the local antiseptic,
can kill fungus and yeast on contact by bombarding the spores with
concentrated oxygen as the hydrogen peroxide releases into oxygen and
water.

It stood to reason that if oxygen were that effective locally, it would do just
as good a job internally as well. The problem, initially, was how to deliver
the oxygen safely. The common 3% hydrogen peroxide, which you buy in
drug stores, contains many potentially harmful contaminants and cannot be
taken internally. Our search continued and eventually we discovered 35%
food grade hydrogen peroxide – a pharmaceutical grade product that is
completely pure.

Early attempts to use 35 percent hydrogen peroxide for medical purposes
proved to be safe but somewhat annoying for patients. Even though
hydrogen peroxide has been used safely for various medical conditions back
as far as the late 1800’s, the taste of hydrogen peroxide is almost unbearable,
especially if you have to take it several times per day for a prolonged period
of time, such as in the management of various chronic conditions.
While I was working at one of the largest alternative hospitals in the world, I
was privileged to help develop a buffered delivery system, which enabled us
to flavor the hydrogen peroxide, making it more palatable, while still
preserving the oxygen benefits. This enabled patients to increase their
oxygen several times a day without developing a regurgitating reaction.
Note: you cannot mix pure hydrogen peroxide with anything except water.
To do so will release the oxygen and render the product virtually ineffective.
Our special oxygen liquid suspension is accomplished via a proprietary
procedure, which preserves the integrity of the oxygen content. Information
regarding obtaining this product may be obtained by calling our Institute at
1-888-454-8464.

Since oxygen kills the candida organism and since oxygen can permeate
every cell of the body, it is not only safe but very effective in both localized
candidiasis and cases of wide spread systemic candidiasis. In fact, liquid
oxygen is the only substance effective on candidiasis of the brain, since
oxygen easily crosses the blood/brain barrier.

Is the use of hydrogen peroxide safe? The answer is a resounding yes, if you
do it right. We do NOT recommend the use of pure 35% hydrogen peroxide,
which must be diluted with water. The taste is foul and can cause stomach
and throat irritation if mixed improperly. We have developed a buffered
oxygen supplement that is not only completely safe for oral ingestion but
actually tastes very pleasant as well. It does not need to be mixed so no
concerns about mixing incorrectly exist. Keep in mind that even our premixed
supplement MUST be taken on an empty stomach, 30 minutes before
or 3 hours after a meal. To consume liquid oxygen with food in the stomach
causes the oxygen to disassociate too rapidly, most of the oxygen being
exhaled before it has a chance to absorb through the stomach wall. Further,
the presence of natural bacteria in foods accelerates the foaming of the liquid
oxygen, which can cause nausea and other stomach upsets. Virtually all of
these problems are eliminated when you take the formula on an empty
stomach.

In order to effectively kill the candida overgrowth, we need to bombard the
body with concentrated oxygen for a period of between 4 and 6 weeks.
Take one ounce of Liquid Oxygen Premixed, on an empty stomach, three
times per day. ( an ideal time would be upon arising in the morning, before
lunch and again either before your evening meal or just before bed.)
After two weeks, increase the dosage of Liquid Oxygen to 2 ounces three
times per day, on an empty stomach, for a total of 6 ounce of the premixed
formula per day. Maintain the 6 ounce total dose for a period of 4 weeks.
This ends the cleansing cycle and the killing of the candida organism.
( you can obtain our oxygen supplement formula, called Oxy Aloe, from a
company called Phoenix Nutritionals – www.phoenixnutritionals.com
Next it is important to re-implant the healthy acidophilus back into the
intestines as follows.

Obtain a bottle of high quality multi-source acidophilus capsules, preferably
the highest potency you can find. Take 10 of these capsules all at once, on an
empty stomach, once per day. Do this for 10 days. This will restore the
natural bacterial balance to your intestinal tract. (a formula designed for this
program is also available from Phoenix Nutritionals- see above)
Note: If you ever have to take antibiotics again, always re-implant the
healthy bacteria by the above method, beginning with the first day after the
last antibiotic dose. This will prevent upsetting your intestinal flora and
possibly causing another outbreak of candidiasis.

The third phase of our program is to rebuild, boost and nurture your immune
system. The candida organism, when present in explosive amounts, gives off
free radical forming chemicals, which can cause the immune system to
produce specific antibodies. Over time, this can drain the immune system to
the point of exhaustion. The following combination of nutrients not only
stimulates the immune system into better function but also nourishes the
system, ensuring that your immunity is in a healthy state of readiness next
time it’s needed.

We use a combination of the following immune-enhancing factors. (you can
obtain this formula from Phoenix Nutritionals – see above)

Colostrum Concentrate
Mycelium Mushroom Extracts
Echinacea
Astragallus Extract
Panax Ginseng
Pau D’Arco Extract
Vitamin C
Vitamin A
Zinc
By following this three-phase program, we have enabled thousands and
thousands of people to finally be free from the debilitating and annoying
symptoms of candida overgrowth.

You must remember that you are not alone and this is not some kind of
experimental program. We have been using this exact protocol on women
and men just like you for over 26 years and with excellent results.
Ladies, if you suspect your husbands or significant others may also be
contaminated with candida overgrowth, it is essential that they too, go
through the program outlined in this booklet. If not, many women find
themselves being re-infected again after they have been cleaned up by this
program.

Preventing Candida Overgrowth from Re-occurring
Now that you are once again enjoying a healthier state of being and the
synergistic balance of bacteria has been restored to your intestinal tract, it is
important to understand what you need to do to ensure that you don’t
become affected by this problem again in the future.

If you need to take antibiotics again, for any reason, do so if needed, but
always, always, always, re-implant the healthy bacteria back into the
intestines by taking high potency acidophilus capsules for 10 days after the
last day of antibiotic use.

If you are female and taking birth control pills, be sure and either consume
bacterial foods such as yogurt, buttermilk, or take 2 to 4 capsules of multisource
acidophilus capsules every day.

If you should develop a localized vaginal yeast infection, use three ounces of
our premixed oxygen liquid together with 3 ounces of warm water and
douche, holding the fluid for 5 to 10 minutes, three times per week. This will
likely, catch the problem before it has the chance to spread and once again
become systemic in nature.

Males, if you should develop ‘jock itch’, or other fungal type of skin
condition. Wash the genital area with a three percent hydrogen peroxide
solution, available at drug stores, before and after every intercourse.
Lastly, everyone, regardless of your age or health concerns, should be taking
a Full Spectrum Nutrition product, which provides the body with at least the
122 known nutrients the body needs to maintain health and internal chemical
balance. This Full Spectrum formulation should consist of at least the
following nutrients:

12 amino acids
3 fatty acids
16 vitamins
70+ major and trace minerals
Phytonutrients from living plants
Extra Heavy-hitting antioxidants to protect against free radicals
For optimal absorption and retention consider using a liquid deli
Use a multi-source acidophilus product @ 10 capsules per day for ten days.
Begin this the first day after the last day of liquid oxygen.
Nourish & Rebuild the Immune System
Use a combination of immune building and nourishing nutrients as follows
Colostrum Concentrate 100 mg
Beta 1, 3 D Glucan 25 mg
Echinacea Purpurea Leaf 25 mg
Pau D’Arco Extract 50 mg
Mycelial Mushroom Biomass 200 mg
Take this combination three times per day for 30 days
Our original formulas for the above program are available from a company
in southern California called Phoenix Nutritionals.

Conclusion
Yeast infections, candida overgrowth and even systemic candidiasis, are
common occurrences in our environment. Because they produce symptoms
that may also be caused by many other conditions, it is important to
eliminate the obvious symptomatic causes first. If you have a majority of the
symptoms listed previously in this booklet and your doctor has not been able
to find a cause, you might consider trying this protocol. It cannot harm you
in any way, even if you don’t actually have a candida problem. It may still
be of benefit as a cleansing and detoxifying program, helping to eliminate
any of a wide variety of low grade virus or bacteria.

There are many rewards in this industry. Working with people, educating
them as to how their bodies really work, has been the love of my life now for
over 33 years. One of the greatest rewards is to be able to take someone who
has suffered from a chronic condition such as candidiasis or systemic
candidiasis for months or even years and finally help them to be free from
the debilitating side effects, which often accompany prolonged yeast
infections.

If you are suffering from this condition in any degree, take heart, there is
hope. Thousands and thousands of women and men before you have
followed this protocol and succeeded in conquering their candida problems –
you certainly can too.
