The Many Ways Candida Affects You

When candida overgrows in your gut and then spreads throughout your body, it often overwhelms the detoxification system. Candida produces a number of highly toxic chemicals and long term exposure to these chemicals can wreak havoc on your body.

Chemical sensitivities may develop after your liver loses its ability to eliminate toxins from your body. Turns out that candida toxins can use up and destroy the enzymes needed by the liver to detoxify properly. Worse, they damage the DNA of genes that turn on production of these enzymes. So toxins build up in your body, and any new exposure to chemicals further amplifies your symptoms.

To make matters worse, because the candida fungi drilled holes in your intestinal walls to gain access to the rest of your body, partially digested food escapes into the blood through this leaky gut.

Your immune system, already overwhelmed trying to deal with both fighting the candida fungi and removing the toxins they produce, must now remove the partially digested food. If it can't keep up and becomes too overwhelmed, it eventually forms an allergic response to many of these foods, and then to any other antigen it consistently gets exposed to. So you end up with all types of food sensitivities and allergies to foods, chemicals, pollen and more.

The buildup of toxins and allergies, can, if they body becomes overwhelmed, eventually cause extreme fatigue. Candida toxins can destroy the enzymes in muscle cells needed for the muscles to work.

Cellular mitochondria, responsible for producing cellular energy also lose their ability to produce energy as toxins destroy their enzyme systems. Cell walls get clogged up with toxins and can't uptake nutrients or oxygen properly.

The buildup of toxins, if candida happens to colonize the brain, can cause a foggy head, depression, and anxiety. It's not your fault if this is happening to you. Chemical reactions taking place cause this.

If candida happen to colonize in the pancreas, you may end up with diabetes. In the bone marrow, leukemia. In the heart, arrhythmia or rapid heartbeat can result from the overload of candida toxins.

The toxins wipe out the hormonal systems too. Adrenal fatigue with its lack of energy, and low thyroid, with symptoms of hair loss and weight gain, go hand in hand with candida overgrowth.

Candida eat your hormones, especially progesterone, estrogen and testosterone, so there goes your sex life, down the tubes. And every month menstruating females feed their candida an extra burst of food, which is one reason why they have a harder time dealing with candida overgrowth.

Candida overgrowths throughout the digestive tract, resulting in thrush in the mouth and throat areas, GERD/acid reflux in the stomach, bloating and gas in your guts, and bad breath too.

Your skin is a major detoxification organ, and when the liver loses its ability to detoxify properly, toxins are pushed out through the skin. However, the skin can only handle so much of this detoxing, and it can develop rashes, psoriasis or eczema. These are not always caused by candida overgrowth, but most of the time they are.

There are doctors and researchers that point out that candida overgrowth is often found wherever there is cancer. Doug Kauffman is even presenting a paper on this to an oncological organization. You can read more about the connection between candida and cancer at

If you have a number of these issues, rest assured, you have candida overgrowth. (Not that you also couldn't also have Lyme's Disease or an autoimmune disease also.)

You can also do the simple, free, at home "spit" test described here to confirm that you have or don't have candida overgrowth.

Lifestyle and Diet Changes Aren't Enough

Eating an anti-candida diet, such as that described on the Know The Cause web site is important. No sense feeding the candida and increasing the amount of toxins being produced in your body. This only makes matters worse.

There's also no sense in eating foods and drinking drinks loaded with mold toxins. Again you are overloading an already overloaded body with more toxins.

Going on a good diet is an excellent step in reducing the overload of candida and candida toxins in your body. It is a necessary step to take, however there is 90% likelihood that you need to be fighting the candida and dealing with its toxins in other ways.

If you are among the 10% who are reasonably healthy, then going on a good diet can be enough to keep you healthy. At least for now.

But what happens down the road as you age and your immune system slows down and can no longer keep the overgrowth in check? And your liver starts to wear out from handling candida toxins for decades.? Will you develop dementia, Alzheimer's, cancer because your body if filled with candida overgrowth.

Diet alone doesn't work to eliminate candida overgrowth. Even if your immune system is able to kill off much of a diet depleted overgrowth, you still have candida hanging out in your body outside the circulatory system and thus out of bounds to the immune system. And candida produces spores as do all fungi. Those spores are untouched by the immune system.

Stop eating a healthy anti-candida diet, and guess what happens? The candida living outside the circulatory system in your body, notice there is more food, move back into circulation, and start feasting.

Spores also will bloom at this point and develop into more candida, producing more spores, and more toxins.

So, consuming a healthy anti-candida diet is fundamental. But it cannot eliminate candida overgrowth, only help to keep it in check — for some people.

Many Issues Must Be Addressed When Dealing With Candida Overgrowth

You can certainly decide to use either of both of these elixirs on their own. But you get them for free with any of the kits. And it works best to work on candida and your overall health comprehensively. To support your body in several different ways.

In the age of modern medicine, we are used to thinking that if you've got a bug, you can take some antibiotics, and in a couple of weeks it's knocked out and everything is fine.

Knocking out candida doesn't work this way.

First, it is much tougher pathogen, and thus more difficult to kill.

Second, you've got the candida hiding out in your body and those pesky spores that start the infection all over again.

Third, you can't simply go in and hit it with every candida killing supplement there is. This is because candida contain toxins that get released when they die. The toxins released from all that dead candida would significantly worsen your symptoms.

Fourth, your detoxification system, your immune system, your digestive system, your metabolism, your hormones, your organs and your cells have all been compromised to some extent by the steady onslaught of toxins produced by candida. Your liver will eventually becomes so overworked it won't be unable to remove chemicals and other environmental toxins, so chemical sensitivities develop.

I've learned a lot since 2002. I sold a whole lot of a major anti-candida supplement that is still available. I saw what it could do and couldn't do. I saw how even the biggest proponents of the product were still dealing with candida overgrowth when they cut back, stopped what they were doing, or even just ate some food that feed the candida.

I gradually understood the there are no simple solutions to candida overgrowth. The problem is to big. So I don't trust folks who claim that their one product is going to get you healthy again. It just isn't possible.

Using 1 or 2 Supplements Is Not Going Bring Your Health Back To Optimal, Or Even Normal

There is way too much that you have to heal for that to happen.


If you go online and look at the vast number of anti-fungal, anti-candida products being sold, it gets overwhelming real fast. To help clarify things a bit for you, there are a couple of thoughts to consider.

Almost everyone is pushing the use of one or two or occasionally three anti-candida supplements. Telling you how this is going to take care of your candida problem.

This is impossible, just can't happen, except for the 10% that have not yet had it long enough to have multiple compromised systems in their body. And even with this 10%, the candida won't be eliminated, just reduced enough for maybe keeping it in check for a while.

The products being promoted don't deal with candida spores. Nor do they deal with the candida that move out of the circulatory system, being anaerobic, and thus aren't reached by your normal herbs, enzymes, powders and potions.

The only products you will see that deal with spores and the candida hiding throughout your body are the ones I've developed. CandElim, Silver 9.0 Plus, and CandXpel.

The reason you don't read or hear about spores from all these other folks is because they don't have anything that deals with them.

But doing nothing about the spores that candida or other molds and fungi produce and release into your body is a recipe for continuing on the cycle of using diet and supplements to greatly reduce the amount of candida in your body, but all too soon there it is again.

I've talked to too many people over the years who have been going through this cycle for 10, 15 or even 20 years. And they were still dealing with it.

You Must Deal With Candida Overgrowth Comprehensively

One reason I advertise on Know The Cause is that Doug educates you about candida and fungal overgrowth. He doesn't say "It's is easy to beat, just take this one thing and you'll be healthy."

He teaches you about it, and he gets you on a good diet so that you aren't feeding candida, so that you are not consuming foods with fungal toxins in them which would make your health worse. He hits the basics, and he tells you about the intricacies. It's great information.

I like that.

As you may have noticed, I like to educate too. The more you know about candida fungal overgrowth, the better the decisions you will be able to make, and the better your health will become. If you don't understand and don't take action, later on in life the consequences can be severe.

Researchers finding that every person they autopsied with Alzheimers had a brain full of fungal overgrowth, doctors looking for candida who found it in virtually every tumor they looked at, these kind of things get you thinking — the worst part about having candida overgrowth may not be what it does to you now, as bad as that can be, but how it can affect you later in life.

Years ago after hearing from far too many people of their failed attempts to deal with candida overgrowth, I started creating the best anti candida supplements I could, and perhaps as importantly, developing comprehensive approaches that help people deal with all the issues they face when suffering from candida overgrowth.

You can't deal with all the issues at once. And not everyone can afford the kits mentioned below that we put together with Doug.

So before we get to the kits, I'm going to cover a number of the top individual supplements that help fight candida and deal with its affects on the body better than any other supplements we have investigated. 

Something else you need to know is that there is no such thing as quickly beating candida. Six months is fast, think of it as a year or longer process. If you are taking supplements that deal with spores, it can happen in this time frame. If you aren't, it won't. You'll be dealing with candida the rest of your life.

Know Candida — Top Candida Fighting Supplements


Years ago I set out to make the best possible product to fight candida overgrowth and its spores. CandElim was what I came up with, and it has proven to be very effective. Comes as a 2 ounce liquid so we could energize it with spore deactivating and candida killing energies. Packed with herbs, essential oils and other nutrients that kill candida and other pathogens. With over tens thousand bottles sold, it proven to be a great candida fighter that has been our go to anti candida supplement for years. It's so good, in fact, one practitioner told me that it was even the cure for Crohn's. It is easy to take,  and extremely powerful, so start with a low dose of 1 to 6 drops a day, depending on your sensitivities, and work up to using 30 drops once a day.

If you can just afford one supplement to fight candida, make it CandElim.  Because of its ability to kill spores, in addition to its powerful candida fighting actions, it gives you a chance to actually knock out the overgrowth. With most other supplements, this is not possible because the spores are not killed or eliminated.

PapayaPro is a multi-dimensional supplement that has help users for many years. It is a powder that uses mature green papaya powder to digest candida, parasites and other pathogens. It contains modified citrus pectin that will absorb candida die off toxins, helping your body better handle the side effects of killing candida. And it is packed with free radical scavenging anti-inflammatory herbs that help to reduce the excessive inflammation that candida toxins cause. Use one container of month of this powder, taking it on an empty stomach once a day.

More support with frequency enhanced water elixirs.

The base of each elixir is the same. Structured water and a tiny amount of organic orange and rosemary essential oils. These hold the energetic vibration frequencies of sets of instructions that are being transferred to the body by taking the elixirs. Each type of elixir has a different set of instructions — all in the form of energetic vibrational frequencies. Again. The base of each is the same, as with homeopathy or any other energetic remedy.

Our experience is that they do a great job of doing whatever we instruct them to do. Well over 100,000 elixirs have been sold over the years so we've heard a great deal of feedback on them. They are very easy to take, as they can all be held together in the mouth, twice a day, for a minute before swallowing. Twenty or more minutes away from anything else.

The elixirs below are some of the strongest candida fighting support supplements you can include in this battle against candida overgrowth. The most important one is....


Optimal C Elixir

This elixir tells the liver to make the enzyme needed by humans so that we can make our own vitamin C. We are missing the gene needed to make this enzyme, while most other mammals have this gene. Optimal C takes the place of this gene, so to speak, by instructing the liver to make optimal amounts of this enzyme so that it can make optimal amounts, in the range of 10 grams or more a day, of natural, exactly what the body needs, vitamin C.

All this vitamin C acts as a powerful detoxification agent, eliminating free radicals and toxins. It is even a strong candida killer. The liver, when you take Optimal C, makes vitamin C from glucose. Blood sugar. Candida gobbles up this vitamin C because it looks like sugar to them. Inside the candida, it interacts with minerals and forms hydrogen peroxide. When enough hydrogen peroxide builds up in the candida fungus, it dies.

Use 1 or 2 bottles a month of Optimal C Elixir. Start with a low dose because of its detoxification abilities. Optimal C is an elixir that you could decide to continue using for the rest of your life. LDL cholesterol causes cardiovascular disease only when it is oxidized. If you have optimal amounts of vitamin C in your blood, it will not oxidize, and you will have significantly protected yourself from heart attacks and strokes.

Liver Detox Pathways Elixir

A huge issue in recovering from candida is overwhelm to the liver that a lifetime of detoxifying candida toxins causes. What happens is that the enzymes in the detoxification pathways that eliminate toxins from the body get used up. In addition, the genes that control the production of these enzymes become damaged by candida toxins, and don't signal the liver to make more of these enzymes.

As a consequence, the liver can't complete the process of removing toxins from the body and these toxins build up in cells throughout the body. If you experience chemical sensitivities, if you can't handle candida killing die off, this inability to detoxify is what happened to you.

The Liver Detox Pathways Elixir would be one of the most important, if not the most important supplement for you to be using, when this is the case. It tells the body to make the enzymes in the liver detoxification pathways, so that those pathways can start working again, and at long last, toxins will start to be efficiently eliminated by the liver.

In addition, it tells the body to gradually repair the genes that were damaged, so that they liver can start making those enzymes again, without needing to take this elixir forever. Use 1 or 2 bottles a month for 4 to 6 months.

CandXpel is a unique candida and spore fighting elixir that works by sending candida and spores out of the body. Frequencies in this elixir irritate the candida and make it want to leave the body. The immune system is told to find candida and spores and transport them out of the body. Without killing them.  

This greatly reduces die off because the candida are not being killed. Remarkably, it is proving to be quite strong for dealing with candida. In fact it may turn out to be the very best anti-candida supplement there is.

This is the supplement of choice to use to fight candida if you are highly sensitive to die off.

Pentose Phosphate Pathway Elixir

This elixir has a unique action especially valuable when you suffer from a foggy head, fatigue, depression, anxiety and irritability. These symptoms, and others, are caused by the alcohol toxins produced by candida. The Pentose Phosphate Pathway Elixir stops or reduces production of this alcohol. Here's how.

The pentose phosphate pathway is the enzyme pathway in cells and candida that metabolize glucose to make energy. Alcohol toxins are produced by candida as a byproduct of glucose metabolism. Instructions in the Pentose Phosphate Pathway Elixir stop production of the enzymes in the pentose phosphate pathway.

As a consequence, Candida become weaker because they are unable to get much energy from eating their favorite food, carbs and sugars. They will not be able to flare up as easily when you cheat on the diet. They will be less active. They will be easier to kill.

Their toxin production will greatly decrease. Helping to take a load off your detoxification system. Your cells will then be able to start eliminating some of the toxins that are stuck in them. Your body will start to heal.

If you are one of the many who suffer from excessive symptoms and sensitivities because of candida overgrowth, adding in the Pentose Phosphate Pathway Elixir, along with CandXpel, Liver Detox Pathways Elixir and PapayaPro, make a lot of sense.

Proteolytic Boost

This elixir make PapayaPro much more effective. At the same time it is extremely powerful on its own. Instructions in it tell your pancreas to make extra enzymes, called proteolytic enzymes, in order to digest the candida in your body. In fact, the pancreas is told to make enough additional enzymes to digest all the candida in just three months.

It may take longer, of course, but this instruction gives the pancreas a volume of enzyme production to shoot for. What makes these extra enzymes extremely powerful is this instruction. The body is instructed to transport these enzymes to where they need to go. In this case, to digest candida.

The longer you continue using Proteolytic Boost, the more it does. These enzymes are a major cleanup crew for your body. Arteries will be cleared of clot forming fibrin. Scar tissue will gradually be digested. Cysts and tumors are digested by these enzymes too. Instructions tell your body to assess and optimize how best to use these enzymes, and to get the enzymes where they need to go. Candida, with all its symptoms and ill health consequences, will be a major target selected by the body for these extra enzymes.

Additional instructions tell your body to transport any supplemental enzymes to where they need to go. Typically when you take supplemental enzymes on an empty stomach so that they can go into the body, they float around the blood system and digest whatever they happen to run into. With this targeting, the enzymes in PapayaPro, for example, will be much more effective as more of them will get to candida fungi to digest them and their toxins.

There tends to be less die off symptoms from the use of enzymes to kill candida because the enzymes will also digest the toxins in candida. As a consequence, PapayaPro and Proteolytic Boost are among the top supplements to use when you have plenty of candida overgrowth, especially if you suffer from extreme sensitivity.

Healing Rescue

This elixir will also help you deal with your candida symptoms, and any other health or stressful crisis you may be dealing with. The instructions in it help your body to respond to adverse symptoms with more calm, and work to reduce those symptoms, or stop them entirely, if possible.

If you always have symptoms, take Healing Rescue every day with your other elixirs. Or if it is an occasional symptom, cold or flu, headache, or worse, take on an as needed basis. Healing Rescue contains a number of the same energies that are in other popular energetic remedies such as Rescue Remedy, and in addition have many other powerful instructions that make it much more effective to use. If you are sick of how you feel, give Healing Rescue a try and see what it can do for you.
