The Causes of Candida
Candida, The Mother of Most Illnesses. Its Causes and Effects
From the Book A Miraculous Health Substance
by Marvin Lee Robey
This book explains candida in detail: its four causes, why it is much more dangerous and common than generally realized and its effective treatment. The following is a condensation of the main portion on candida from the book. If you think you might have candida you need to read chapters 8 and 9.
Candida is the name of the condition given to a digestive system in which the yeast known as Candida Albacans dominates the digestive system along with as many as 5,000 strains of unfriendly bacteria. In its latter stages it infects the blood. It and the other unfriendly bacteria that go with it live in an acid, oxygen-starved environment. The beneficial probiotics live in an oxygenated, alkaline environment.
All acids are composed to a large degree of hydrogen ions, while alkalines are largely composed of oxygen ions. Therefore acids are nearly oxygen-free while alkalines are rich in oxygen. Our bodies are meant to be very rich in oxygen throughout. Although the red blood cells carry the oxygen from the lungs, the body also requires the oxygen from alkaline foods. Just as the body cannot absorb the oxygen from the blood into the essential food, so the body cannot absorb the oxygen from the food into the blood. The oxygen from the lungs is used to produce the energy the body needs, while the oxygen from alkaline foods is used to build healthy tissue. Therefore our bodies must be alkaline to be healthy.
The optimum level is considered to be 7.4 PH. All junk foods, starches, proteins and common sugars produce an acid, low oxygen condition throughout our bodies. Fruits and vegetables, including acid fruits produce an alkaline condition throughout our bodies. This does not mean we should not have any of the acid foods in our diet, but rather that our diet should have more alkaline foods than acid foods. Our common modern diets are very high in acid foods and low in alkaline foods.
There are four general common causes of candida. The first is the common failure to establish the beneficial probiotics at birth which comes from the mother’s colostrum - the mothers first milk. This is one reason statistics show that babies that nurse from their mother the day they are born have 41% less chance of dying in their first few months than the average baby! These probiotics are intended to dominate the babies’ digestive system for life. Most prescription medications and vaccinations attack these beneficial probiotics.
The second cause is sugar and starches, which turn our digestive system acid very quickly. The soft drinks, usually loaded with phosphoric acid and sweets we give our children are devastating to their health. Many people think the only problem with sweets and starches is that they tend to produce fat and cause tooth decay. Such is a very nearsighted point of view. They turn the whole body acid and thereby disrupt the entire body chemistry. They block the absorption of nutrients to all the cells of the body. They also tend to rob the body of nutrition.
The third cause of candida is the chlorine, floride and other chemicals in our tap water and preservatives, flavoring and other chemicals in our common foods of today. Chlorine is put in the water to kill the bacteria in the water. It kills bacteria indiscriminately. It kills the probiotics in the digestive system just like it does in the water pipes. That means it is killing off the beneficial probiotics as well as the unfriendly bacteria. In general, the friendly probiotics are killed off easier than the unfriendly bacteria.>
Fluoride has a similar effect. Floride is a highly dangerous poison in any quantity. It has now been revealed that the original tests showing that floride prevented tooth decay were intentionally falsified. Extensive military studies of the effects of floride during WWII proved conclusively that natural floride in water attacked the weakest organ of the body. People living in areas of high natural floride levels died considerably earlier than the average people in other areas. Their teeth were softer.
The floride by-products of the lead and aluminum industries are worse. The people were sold on the idea of adding floride to their water and tooth paste because it is the by-product of the aluminum and lead industries and it is so toxic it has been illegal to dispose of it in most ways. Before they sold the people on it, its main market was for rat poison. Its’ second market was to tame wild animals and take the fight out of them. This was because it destroyed the pineal gland in the brain. It was also used in mental institutions for the same purpose and in some prisoner of war camps. It has been outlawed in every country of Europe except the English speaking countries.
The fourth cause of candida and the main cause today in the U.S. is antibiotics click here to read about antibiotics and to some lesser degree other prescription drugs. Antibiotics kill bacteria. Some only kill certain strains. Many kill all bacteria indiscriminately. All kill more than the ones they are aimed at. That usually means killing some or all of the beneficial probiotics along with the pathogen it is aimed at. However, they do not kill the yeasts and fungus. That leaves the yeasts and fungus to take over in the absence of those that compete with them.
These unfriendly anaerobic life forms immediately produce an acid condition in the digestive system conducive to their needs in which beneficial probiotics do very poorly, while the anaerobic unfriendly bacteria flourish. This still more acid condition makes it very difficult to reestablish the friendly prbioticss. Each time we take antibiotics the yeast gets a new big boost and can take over with one series of antibiotics.
The effects may not be obvious at first. We are already sick and some change in our digestive system is usually attributed to that. But afterward our health gradually declines as a result. The resulting decline can gradually proceed for many years if nothing is done about it. Taking probiotics helps but usually cannot regain their hold without killing off the yeasts and unfriendly bacteria first.
Eventually the condition often results in food lodging in the folds of the colon and new food pushing past the lodged food, pushing it further back into the folds. This decays in a very dangerous way with a highly acidic condition which eventually eats through small areas of the colon producing the condition known as a perforated colon. This very putrid material in the fold now leaks its infection into the blood. The condition becomes very serious and eventually results in the destruction of the white blood cells and often the red blood cells, thus the destruction of the immune system.
At this point we catch every infection that comes along. This often results in cancer. Click here to read about cancer. It contributes to heart problems and diabetes, as well as other serious health problems. All of the body odors are greatly increased, because they are caused by the inability of the body to eliminate the toxins properly and the body eliminates them through sweat, breath etc. Anaerobic bacteria and fungus cause very bad body odors. The accompanying lack of oxygen in the body results in fatigue.
Always tired and dragging? Frequent colds, flu and diarrhea? do you have fungal infections such as vaginal yeast, athletes foot or nail fungus? Then you probably have Candida!
Candid-X sharply distinguishes between needed bacteria and harmful bacteria. Candid-X will not harm needed probiotics while quickly killing harmful bacteria. Candid-X can do what no antibiotic or fungicide can do.
Candid-X is a 24 day treatment that includes the cleansing of the colon for the digestive system and will not require further treatment thereafter unless there is candida in the blood.
Don't be fooled by other treatments that only treat Candida and leave its 5,000 friends (unfriendly bacteria) to reinfect as soon as the treatments have stopped. Many treatments include a special diet, special herbs, prescription medications, or probiotics. You could spend months and thousands of dollars trying to treat Candida using products with dangerous side effects or diets that simply do not work.
Candid-X treats the yeast and fungus as well as the unfriendly bacteria while leaving the friendly probiotics alone.
The Candid-X package is a complete program. It is a safe, fast, low-cost and complete treatment plan that is easy to follow. It treats Candida in the entire body including the intestinal tract, colon, and blood.
