Candida & Parasites
Almost always candida and parasites "hang" together like twins. Both have to be addressed. They often also have a third condition attached to them - chemicals. Most people have at least three to six different types of parasites or worms and have never been tested for it via a stool test.
The most common symptoms of parasites are the following:
2. Irritability, and moodiness (which usually comes in cycles, around the full moon).
3. Feeling bloated.
4. Joint pains (protozoa, sometimes mistaken for arthritis or rheumatism).
5. Extreme skinniness or inability to gain weight even though the person consumes large amounts of food (usually present in children or young adults caused by round or tape worms).
6. Chronic fatigue (all parasites but particularly toxoplasmosis which is derived from cats, makes people extremely tired).
1. Colon hydrotherapy.
2. A parasite test.
3. Parasite protocol (Hanna Kroeger Herbs).
4. Special diet.
5. Take your pets to the veterinarian for de-worming.
6. Preparation when traveling to specific countries e.g.. India,Tibet, South America.
7. A chemical and metal test.
8. Do not drink tap water.
Candida can only grow in an intrinsic milieu that is acid. Do to years of not eliminating properly the digestive system becomes a breeding ground for an overgrowth of candida, parasites, bacteria, and viruses. It is my experience of 30 years of working with patients, especially women with candida that they will not get rid of it completely until they do the following:
1. A series of colonic irrigations to get all the impacted matter out of the colon.
2. Candida diet.
3. Thorough parasite protocol.
4. Chemical detoxifying protocol.
5. Supplementation program.
6. Oxygen therapy.
7. Enzymatic therapy.
8. Allergy testing and program.
9. Drinking distilled, alkalized, oxygenated, and magnetized water.
10. Finding out exactly the reasons for craving the candida foods, (carbs, sugars, cakes, sweets, wines, chocolate, ice cream). Are the reasons physical, biochemical, nutritional, emotional or a combination of all. All sources have to be addressed.
11. Mercury fillings are also a contributing factor to candida and so are parasites and chemicals.
The following article (Experienced notes on candida) will explain the basic points about candida.
Symptoms of candida albicans overgrowth (which is what we should call this) are:
Tired, brain fatigue / fog unclear thoughts, irritability / mood swings, hormonal imbalance, gas (usually) weight gain, bloating (usually) food sensitivities parasites.
Symptoms that may (or may not) be subconsciously suppressed by will are depression, carbohydrate cravings. sweet cravings, lack of zest for life, bulimia, suicidal tendencies, anorexia, anti-social proclivities, mid to large paranoia.
Physiological symptoms often, but not always present are skin rashes, cuticle area redness, fungus under toe nails, fungus under fingernails, yeast infections, thrush (mouth eruptions), chemical sensitivity, colitis, acne,ear aches (in children).
Candida albicans is a natural fungus in our large intestine that makes up for insufficient digestion by the pancreas and liver and to some degree, by the intestines. Before 1989 the major cause was antibiotics that killed the natural flora in the intestines / liver / pancreas. After June 1989, the epidemic seems more related to the excess radiation emitted from one satellite.
Candida is considered a natural fungus inside of us. When it overgrows, the body does not recognize it as an invader, and the body's taste starts to turn towards foods that will feed the fungus more than the body.
Generally speaking, candida albicans is kept in balance by an amino acid called Taurine. Men produce more taurine than women for reasons not yet discovered. Therefore, women often have an overgrowth of candida more than men. (Men with low thyroids seem to be the most commonly affected). One of the goals of the "diet" portion of the program is to restore the taurine to full presence. Ironically, taurine is only found in foods of animal origin. Vegetarians using this program need to take amino acid supplements with taurine to affect a turnaround.
Candida invites a host of ancillary problems. It is not a matter of whether or not there are parasites. It is a matter of how many and which ones protozoa, cryptosporidian, hookworm, liver flukes, and toxoplasmosis gondi are favorites, but all are probable. Fungus begets fungus. Often crypto-mycosis, general blood and organ fungus and other forms of candida. Bacteria infection can intertwine with the candida fungus and make an alliance that won't budge with the program unless the bacteria is addressed along with the candida remedies. The chief binding bacteria is staph, especially if there is a history of taking niastatin, a medical drug for candida. Second in commonness is Staph / Strep / Shingella. Strep, the third common binder possibility. Coxsackie has occasionally been seen. When cryptosporidium combines with the bacteria Heliocobacter Pylori (HEL ATR), a weak binder is also created. Clearing Candida is often insufficient to clear the fungus it creates under toe nails. Put 20 drops of Quaw Bark into a pan of warm water and soak the appendage for approximately 20 minutes, 5 nights in a row. Do not do this with children's hands at night because it can cause a temporary case of bedwetting (daytime is okay).
The principles that are in this program that seem to make it work where other programs have failed to cure the issue are:
Diet and herbs / homeopathic are used simultaneously. One without the other is insufficient. Temporary, small cases of budding candida albicans have been averted with St. John's Wort, 7 drops 2-3x, without a strict diet. The diet is aimed at the pancreas and liver getting a rest, not so much at the intestines. Simultaneously, the problems that impair the organs are eradicated. Candida albicans turns into yeast in the blood stream, and the yeast backs up in the liver's blood filtering activity. Stay Sober is for candida in the liver (and candida in the liver is often what attracts people to alcohol). By clearing the liver of yeast, chemicals, bacteria in the first stage and flushing the liver in the second stage, the reserve candida, that re-infects without a liver flush, is emptied into the large intestines and destroyed by the third stage.
Parasites are cleaned out simultaneously with the candida overgrowth. If allowed to stay, fungus will grow on the defecation of the parasites and re-invite candida.
Taurine is re-instated to bring the body back to it's regular and natural balance.
The object is to reduce the excess fungus (candida) and build up the natural balancing amino acid (taurine). The products Kantita, Foon Goos 2 (and Livah or Stay Sober, if the candida has gone into the liver) are combined with amino or taurine dophilus to aid the return of the system to it's natural balance. A liver flush after the first round of herbs speeds up the progress.
During the time of imbalance, the system has difficulties digesting sugars and most carbohydrates, as well as grains, fungi, yeast, milk products and anything fermented. Some foods are purposefully omitted from either column, because there are mixed results with people. Such foods as nuts, quinoa, soy products, etc, could be introduced experimentally after the third month. The guideline time to stay on this diet and let your system regain it's balance is 4 to 6 months, after which you re-introduce the omitted foods slowly, starting with carbohydrates. Afterwards, "moderation" is a good guideline.
OKAY TO EAT
Vegetables ideally raw (see Birgit's raw food preparation DVD), or other raw food preparation recipe books. Some slightly steamed vegetables are okay as well. Green juices, green smoothies and the energy soup are highly recommended. Greens fight fungus, the more greens the body assimilates the fungus then starts to die off. Drinking oxygenated water is highly recommended.
OMIT FROM DIET
Fruits and fruit juices, sugars, artificial sweeteners, chocolates, potatoes, pasta, tortillas, beans, corn cooked to hardness, like popcorn and corn flour. Avocados, millet, barley, yogurt (because it's predigested), rice cakes, rice syrup (sweetener), rice flour, tahini (crushed sesame seed, like peanut butter). Bread, wheat, cereal of wheat or oat, yeast containing products including yeast containing vitamins, canned soups, and any form of bread with yeast. Alcohol, beer, wine, sodas, vinegar, sauerkraut, fermented products (except apple cider vinegar),. A little salad dressing is okay, mushrooms and fungus, coffee (okay in very little amounts) if you are drinking 3 cups a day reduce intake slowly.
WHEN CRAVINGS COME AND YOU ARE TEMPTED DO THE FOLLOWING:
Keep a food diary and write down your feelings or reactions to a situation and then discuss it with Birgit or your therapist in your next session.
This diet is a guideline that can occasionally be broken, usually at the expense of discomfort and a longer cure time. Diabetics, hypoglycemic ad people with other pancreatic problems need to continue some limited form of carbohydrates in order to maintain their blood sugar level. If the cravings monster hits you, the best break over is the carrot / raisin manna bread and the worst is fruit / fruit juices.
A. A series of colonic irrigations accompanied by the hanna kroeger herbal protocol as follows:
Take 2 caps 2x a day
Foon Goos 2
Amino Taurine Dolphilus
Stage 2 -Liver Flush
Liver flush option 1
Take each morning for 5 mornings
4 oz olive oil
Juice of 3 oranges
Juice of 2 lemons
Place in blender 5 seconds, then drink
No food for 2 hours afterwards
Then resume normal eating
Liver Flush option 2
2 days of stewed tomatoes as much as you like and no other food except tomato juice (water is okay) at the end of the 2nd evening drink mixture of 3 oz. olive oil, 2 oz. castor oil, and 3 oz. whipping cream. Give yourself a coffee enema each day of either liver flush option you choose, (ideally 3 days in a row).
B. Follow the candida diet as described above.
C. Incorporate some form of oxygen therapy e.g.. ozone colon hydrotherapy, intravenous ozone therapy, hyperbolic chamber, ozone bath, ozone shower, drinking water infused with ozone and exercise for increased oxygen intake (ideally outdoor sports). Use a far-infrared ozonated sauna. Become more aware of deep breathing everywhere all the time.
OXYGEN HEALING THERAPY ARTICLE
Pamela's candida was out of control. After being treated unsuccessfully with diet, drugs and natural remedies for five years, she was unable to work and her doctors were ready to give up on her. Yet after only eight treatments of intravenous hydrogen peroxide therapy she became symptom free and was able to return to work by the following week.
Lily's angina pain kept her confined to her home much of the day yet after a three week course of ozone therapy, her symptoms disappeared and she was able to walk for blocks without discomfort.
Bill woke up one morning with the flu. Rather than remain in bed from 48 to 72 hours and lose several days of work he received one intravenous infusion of hydrogen peroxide from his doctor. His symptoms were gone by the next morning.
In an age when medical specialization, complex procedures and toxic drugs are often expensive and ineffective, health care consumers are interested in getting back to basics. We are looking for medical therapies that will naturally enhance our bodies own healing powers and help cure both minor and serious diseases. Finally, we are looking for therapies that will cause a minimum of negative side effects, and which will not bring about financial ruin.
Most of us believe that such a therapy is nonexistent. However, there are a number of simple, natural substances whose clinical use has been documented in medical literature since the 1920's and have been proven affective in treating some of are most common serious diseases both here and abroad, including heart disease, cancer and aids. Intentionally overlooked by the mainstream medical profession, the government and the pharmaceutical industry, they are now being used by a rapidly growing underground of health care consumers and a small number of physicians who are tired of the expensive, dangerous, invasive and often useless medical procedures used to treat these diseases today.
The elements in question are hydrogen peroxide and ozone, used in a therapeutic approach known collectively as bio-oxidative therapy.
The philosophy behind bio-oxidative therapies is a simple one. The use hydrogen peroxide and ozone in medicine is based in the belief that the accumulation of toxins in the body is normally burnt up by the process of oxidation, a process wherein a substance is changed chemically because the effect of oxygen on it. Oxidation breaks the toxins down into carbon dioxide and water, and eliminates them from the body. However, if the oxygen system of the body is weak or deficient (wether through lack of exercise, environmental pollution, poor diet, smoking, or improper breathing), our bodies cannot eliminate them adequately and a toxic reaction can occur. In minor cases, a toxic build-up can lead to fatigue, while a wide range of diseases can result when poor oxygenation is chronic.
Although few of us have ever heard of them, bio-oxidative therapies have been around for a long time. They have been used clinically by European physicians for over a century, and first reported by Dr. T.H. Oliver in the British medical publication The Lancet in 1920. Since that time they have been studied in major medical research centers throughout the world, including Baylor University, Yale University, The University of California (Los Angeles) and Harvard University in the United States, as well as medical schools and laboratories in Great Britain, Germany, Russia, Canada, Japan, Cuba, Mexico, and Brazil. Today between 50 and 100 scientific articles are published each month about the chemical and biological effects.
HOW DO THEY WORK
Bio-oxidative therapies are used to flood the body with active forms of oxygen orally, intravenously or through the skin. Once in the body, the hydrogen peroxide or ozone breaks down onto various oxygen subspecies which contact anaerobic viruses and microbes (i.e. viruses and microbes which have the ability to live without air), as well as diseased or deficient tissue cells. It oxidizes these cells while leaving the healthy cells alone. When the body becomes saturated with these special forms of oxygen, it reaches a state of purity wherein disease microorganisms are killed, while (the underlying toxicity is oxidized and eliminated).
Hydrogen peroxide is involved in all of life's vital processes, and must be present for the immune system to function properly. The cells in the body that fight infection (known as granulocytes) produce hydrogen peroxide as a first line of defense against invading organisms like parasites, viruses, bacteria and yeast. It is also required for the metabolism of protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals. As a hormonal regulator, hydrogen peroxide is necessary for the body's production of estrogen, progesterone, and thyroxin; it also helps regulate blood sugar and production of energy in cells. Hydrogen peroxide has long been known medically as a disinfectant, antiseptic and oxidizer, but has only recently been found to successfully treat a wide variety of human diseases with a minimum of harmful side effects. The most com-BIOB method used by doctors calls for small amounts of 30 regent grade hydrogen peroxide added to purified water and administered as an intravenous drip.
Ozone is an energized form of oxygen with extra electrons, and was originally used to disinfect wounds and infected surfaces. It was later found that these electrons have the ability to blast holes through the membranes of viruses, known in this country for treating AIDS patients with a holistic protocol including ozone, bio-oxidative therapies have an effect on the human body in the following ways:
1. They stimulate the production of white mono cells, which are necessary to fight infection.
2. Ozone and hydrogen peroxide are anti-viral.
3. They increase oxygen and hemoglobin disassociation, thus increasing the delivery of oxygen from the blood to the cells.
4. Ozone and hydrogen peroxide are anti-neoplastic, which means that they inhibit the growth of new tissues like tumors.
5. They oxidizes and degrade petrochemicals.
6. They increase red blood cell membrane elasticity, thus enhancing their flexibility and effectiveness.
7. Bio-oxidative therapies increase the production of interferon and tumor necrosis factor, which the body uses to fight infections and cancers.
8. They increase the efficiency of the anti-oxidant enzyme system, which scavenges excess free radicals in the body.
9. They accelerate the citric acid cycle, which is the main cycle for the liberation of energy from sugars. This then stimulates basic metabolism. They also break down proteins, carbohydrates and fats to be used as energy.
10. Bio-oxidative therapies increase tissue oxygenation, thus bringing about patient improvement.
SAFE AND EFFECTIVE
Although ozone and hydrogen peroxide are highly toxic in their purified state, they have been found to be both safe and effective when diluted to therapeutic levels for medical use. When administered in prescribed amounts, the chances of experiencing adverse reactions to bio-oxidative therapies is extremely small. For example, a recent German study evaluating the adverse side effects of over five million medically administered ozone treatments found that the rate of adverse side affects was only 0.000005 per application. The figure is far lower than any other type of medical therapy.
It has been estimated that over ten million people (primarily in Germany, Russia, and Cuba) have been given bio-oxidative therapies over the past seventy years to treat over fifty different diseases. They include heart and blood vessel diseases, diseases of the lungs, infectious diseases and immune related disorders. In some cases bio-oxidative therapies are administered alone, while in others, they are used in addition to traditional medical procedures (such as surgery or chemotherapy) or as adjuncts to alternative health practices like megavitamin therapy, acupuncture or herbal medicine. Bio-oxidative therapies are an important part of holistic treatment for HIV related problems.
Dan's was one such case. He was diagnosed HIV positive and his T-cell count had dropped below 600. After only one month of ozone therapy as part of a protocol including vitamin supplement, anti-viral compounds and intestinal cleansing, his T-cell count rose to 900 and his swollen lymph nodes shrank for the first time in years. According to the international Bio-Oxidative Medical Foundation, a professional organization founded by Charles H. Fair, M.D., a 1993 nominee for the Nobel Prize in medicine, the following conditions or diseases have been treated with ozone and hydrogen peroxide with varying degrees of success: heart and blood vessel diseases, pulmonary diseases, infectious diseases such as influenza and herpes zoster, immune disorders like multiple sclerosis, and other disorders such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease.
UNKNOWN, IGNORED AND FORGOTTEN
Despite the fact that both ozone and hydrogen peroxide therapy have been proven in clinical trails (and in regular clinical practice) to be safe and effective in Germany, Cuba, Mexico, Russia, Italy, France and Australia, very few people have heard about bio-oxidative therapies in the United States and Canada. Although an estimated 15,000 European practitioners legally use bio-oxidative therapies in their practice. The number of physicians using these therapies in North America is small, due in part to the fact that information about ozone and hydrogen peroxide is not provided in medical schools.
The medical establishment does not advocate the use of bio-oxidative therapies and often discourages or prevents licensed practitioners from using them in their medical practice. In the United States medical doctors have been threatened with having their licenses revoked if they administer hydrogen peroxide or ozone. Clinics have been closed down and practitioners have been threatened with jail.
A major reason for the lack of interest in bio-oxidative therapies is that ozone and hydrogen peroxide are non patentable substances that are very inexpensive to manufacture and utilize. Medical ozone and hydrogen peroxide are extremely cheap. Typically, bio-oxidative therapies properly administered in a medical setting cost up to fifty percent less than traditional therapies, especially for chronic and degenerative diseases. Self administered therapies by patients themselves can cost far less. For these reasons, ozone and hydrogen peroxide therapies pose a threat to the continued dominance of the medical establishment: the pharmaceutical industry, medical centers and physicians who are accustomed to providing expensive drugs, complex medical procedures, and long hospital stays.
Because the United States government agencies like the Food and Drug (PDA) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are influenced by the pharmaceutical industry and medical lobby, objective investigation and development of effective protocols for bio-oxidative therapies have been difficult to undertake. According to Michael T.F. Carpendalc, M.D., a pioneer ozone researcher and professor of Orthopedic Surgery at the University of California School of Medicine, and the first researcher to report an HIV patient to HIV-using ozone. In the PDA, the drug companies have representatives on nearly all the committees. If there's something which may be very effective but may undersell the average drug company, of course they're not going to be pleased if it gets developed. It might be very difficult for them to compete with that. And ozone is obviously inexpensive to produce, it is very potent (and) if it works half as well as the Germans claim it does, everybody should be using it.
Dr. Horst Kief, a German physician who has successfully treated thousands of patients suffering from cancer, neurodermatitis and HIV related diseases with ozone, commented on why so little government sponsored and drug company research is taking place regarding ozone therapy: "Nobody in the pharmaceutical industry can sell ozone. That's the main reason. When we find a way to sell ozone, I am sure that ozone (will be) the most important drug in the world". By 1994, the drug industry in the United States was a $92 billion dollar business, with annual sales expected to reach $125 billion by 1996. With an average net profit margin of 17.9 percent, the American pharmaceutical industry is among the most profitable sectors of all industry groups.
A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE
Bio-oxidative therapies like hydrogen peroxide and ozone hold great promise in treating both minor health problems and some of the most devastating diseases confronting humanity today, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and HIV-related problems. Together, they form the "cutting edge" of a new healing paradigm, involving safe, effective, natural and less costly forms of medical therapy.
