Detox Candida with a Coconut Oil Cleanse. Part 1: Understanding Candida


Contents of this article:

I’ll start with a quick overview of candida;

Candida is a fungus, a yeast infection caused by the overgrowth of bad bacteria (gut dysbiosis) in the intestines which results in a number of uncomfortable symptoms such as bloating, gas, diarrhea, mood swings, indigestion, bad breath, coated tongue, thrush, Urinary tract infections (UTI’s), brain fog, hormone imbalance, fatigue, repeat sinus infections, poor concentration, and sugar cravings, and that’s only on the lighter side.

Even external fungal infections are often connected with candida, such as skin rashes, dandruff, eczema, acne, toenail fungus, athlete’s foot, ringworm and jock itch are linked to candida spores in the blood.

Its darker side is irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), colitis, leaky gut, food allergies, Celiac disease (gluten intolerances) are all caused by candida.

Globally, fungi kill more than 1.5 million people a year. In the U.S., Candida fungi account for almost 90 percent of hospital-acquired fungal infections, and in Canada they’re the third most common cause of bloodstream infections in intensive care units. More than 40 percent of people with a systemic Candida albicans infection will die. Source: How a deadly fungus evades the immune system

Not a very pleasant pathogen at all as I’m sure you know if you’ve ever suffered from any of the conditions mentioned.

Medically a Doctor will most often prescribe an anti-biotic medicine. This will often give temporary relief, but it won’t eliminate the internal source infection as you are only treating the symptoms and not eliminating the cause, plus these medications will kill all your good bacteria and give the yeast infections an opportunity increase its dominance and spread, doing more harm than good.

To successfully eliminate the Candida fungal pathogen you need to attack it with all 6 main infection fighting substances that are found naturally in nature, this way you can have a complete kill in the fungal form of candida and will be able to break down the candida biofilms and while inhibiting candida spores.

Natural infection fighting substances

    Herbs/plants: Berberine, Clove, Castor oil, Coconut, Dill, Ginger, Grape Seed Extract, Oregano, Parsley, Pau D’arco bark, Sage, Tea tree, Thyme, Turmeric, Turpentine (Pine) oil.

    Acidity: Kombucha, Raw honey, Royal jelly, Sauerkraut, Yogurt, kefir, Kimchi, Miso, Natto.

    Salts: Celtic Sea salt, Pink Himalayan salt, Epson salts.

    Raw dairy: Raw unpasteurized milks, Raw unpasteurized cheese, Traditional Buttermilk.

    Charcoal/clay: Activated charcoal, Kaolin clay.

    Iodine: iodine.

Understanding Candida

Candida is a dimorphic fungi meaning that it can exist in the form of both mold and yeast, and here are over 20 species of Candida yeasts that can cause infection in humans, with the most common being Candida albicans. In its yeast form it is harmless, but once it morphs in to its mold form it literally starts to eat you from the inside, shooting spores into the blood stream to then spread throughout the whole body.

Once candida has established itself as a fungi infection in your gut it is extremely difficult to remove, and needs to be attacked from every possible angle.

Candida loves an alkaline pH environment and can eat any type of foods so you cannot simply starve the infection out by changing your diet. You instead need to create a hostile acidic environment in the gut while simultaneously hitting the candida with phytochemicals (anti-fungal e.g. plant toxins found in herbs), mineral salts, iodine and activated charcoal/clay and restoring your healthy good gut bacteria.

I am not going to lie, this is a serious battle that will take a couple of months to completely eliminate. But once candida is gone your stomach will heal and your food intolerances, allergies and all the nasty diseases caused by candida.

Coconut oil will kill candida in the fungal stage, without harming the guts good flora.

This protocol will take some effort as opposed to popping a pill but the good news is you should never suffer from it again after treating the cause and not just the symptoms, not to mention every other aspect of your health will also improves when you have a healthy gut.

So, you can look forward to that 🙂

There IS a likelihood that you’ll experience detox symptoms whilst doing this as the candida dies off and releases toxins but don’t worry the rest of the protocol will speed up the detox process and alleviate these symptoms as quick as possible.

How does it work?

Coconut oil is made up of three different medium-chain fatty acids – caprylic acid, capric acid, and lauric acid. Two of these amazing fatty acids (Lauric acid and caprylic acid) work together to effectively inhibit the growth of fungi and bacteria cells and eventually killing the fungi, while also helping to flush out the endo-toxins produced by the die off.

Lauric acid is also converted by the body into monolaurinm, which has strong antiviral properties that can protect against and even destroy lipid-coated viruses like herpes and influenza.

As the Candida dies off it releases endo-toxins which gives you the typical and uncomfortable detox symptoms to deal with. Which can be very unpleasant if it is prolonged so it’s also helpful to take activated charcoal.

Activated charcoal has a negative charge and acts like a magnet and sponge to the toxins (which carry a positive charge) and traps the toxins and then carries them out of the body within 6-12 hours.

Since there are a few steps to manage in this protocol I’d recommend taking the activated charcoal at night before bed with a glass of boost water (See What to Drink in Part 3), and you only need to take two capsules for the charcoal to be effective.
