The Chronic Exhaustion & Yeast Overgrowth Connection

Have you been dealing with intense sugar cravings, brain fog, fatigue, digestion issues, and anxiety or depression?  It could be candida overgrowth.

What is candida and how does one get it?

Candida albicans is a specific strain of yeast that lives in the intestinal tract, which can become problematic when it gets out of balance and overgrows.  

Candida is opportunistic, meaning that it will grow out of balance if your health or constitution has been weakened, typically by using antibiotics. Because non-organic meat contains antibiotics, many of us are consuming them, unwittingly, on a daily or at least weekly basis.

Antibiotics kill bacteria – both the good and the bad. So whenever antibiotics are used, we need to repopulate the intestinal flora with good bacteria (probiotics). The good bacteria should outweigh the bad so it doesn’t take over and cause problems.

Antibiotics can also thin our mucosal lining, leaving us ill-equipped to wrap up pathogens like parasites and transport them out of the body. This can make us vulnerable to all kinds of foreign invaders, and yeast overgrowth. So we build the lining of the intestinal tract using a glutamine-based product.

Other contributing factors include excessive sugar, coffee, or alcohol consumption, parasitic infections, and chronic stress.

What are the symptoms of candida?

A white coating on the tongue is typical. However, other symptoms include:

  • intestinal distress like constipation, bloating, or gas.
  • mental/emotional aspects like depression and anxiety,
  • mental fog you simply can’t shake
  • debilitating fatigue/exhaustion
  • intense sugar cravings (anyone running out at 10pm in their pajamas to snag some sweets?)
  • chronic sinus infections
  • excess mucous
  • nail fungus
  • persistent food or environmental allergies.

How do I know if I have it?

Blood, stool, or saliva lab tests can tell if you have candida. But we have found a free, easy, at-home spit test to be quite accurate over the years, which was featured on The Dr. Oz show recently.

It’s as simple as this. For six days in a row, when you wake up in the morning, fill a glass halfway with room temperature water (before you brush your teeth or eat or drink anything). Next work up a dime-sized amount of saliva and spit it into the glass. Check it 3 times over the course of 45 minutes to see if your saliva sinks to the bottom, stays floating on top, or if it grows “legs.” If it sinks or grows legs, then you can suspect that yeast is overgrowing in your system. Don’t be freaked out, it happens to so many of us these days and there is a way to cleanse from it permanently.

Does the spit test sound crazy to you? It does to most! Here’s a visual of it so you can see what it is you may be looking for.

An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure!

To keep candida at bay, keep refined sugar and alcohol to a minimum and always supplement with a good multistrain probiotic when you do consume these foods. Eating fresh garlic, oregano, or drinking Pau D’arco tea can do wonders for the immune system (try our Cleansing Pesto Recipe!). Regularly drinking bone broth or adding a high quality gelatin powder to your smoothie on occasion, can help to strengthen the lining of the intestinal tract.

How Do I Cleanse From It?

To eliminate candida overgrowth, you must “starve” it with a special diet, and then “kill” it with a careful concoction of supplements.

Diet

Eliminate all yeast, gluten, sugar, white flour, fermented foods and drinks, and most fruit. Complex carbohydrates like gluten-free grains, legumes, and root vegetables are allowed, but should be limited. Focus on non-starchy vegetables, clean animal protein, and healthy fats like avocado, butter, and coconut oil. Basically, a pretty boring diet that goes on for 6-8 weeks.

Supplements

After working with hundreds of clients and many years of trial and error, we have finally figured out the best concoction for killing candida:

  • Food grade diatomaceous earth, these old tiny fossils don’t harm the human body, but act like razor blades to the exoskeleton of the candida.
  • Bentonite clay (in lots of water), carries the “shell” out of the body.
  • Antifungals such as grapefruit seed extract, Pau D’arco, oregano oil, and olive leaf extract kill the candida – just make sure to rotate them every four days.

But there’s more to the story.

Because candida can only overgrow in a host with limited resistance, we must figure out which other system in the body has been compromised, be it the immune system (with underlying viruses or heavy metals), an organ or a gland (usually the liver, adrenals, or thyroid) or a combination thereof. Those other systems that are out of balance must also be cleansed and strengthened at the same time, in order for the candidiasis to be completely eliminated.

How do I use the diatomaceous earth internally? And should I soak the clay over night in a glass of water and only drink the water it was in?
Christa • Thu August 29, 2013
Comment
Hello Noelle,
Thank you for reading our blog. Use food grade DE only starting at 1/2 teaspoon mixed with 1/4 teaspoon bentonite clay (powder, not soaked in water). Both of those get mixed with 8 ounces of water. Drink it up and then drink another glass of water to prevent constipation. Check with a health care practitioner to make sure that it is safe to take both, especially if you are taking pharmaceuticals.

Hello!

Thanks SO much :)

Great question Sunny! The antifungals need to be rotated (order doesn’t matter) because candida is a smart, opportunistic organism, that will morph into something else to stay alive if we keep using the same antifungal. Our typical protocol, (but pass it by your health care practitioner) first is Traditional Medicinals: pau d’arco tea (3 cups daily), Gaia Herbs or Orthomolecular ’s: olive leave extract (2 with each meal), Grapefruit Seed Extract-250 mg (2 with each meal), Gaia Herbs: oregano oil (2 with each meal). If you feel like you need more guidance and support you can join the online Candida Cleanse Community – Just click on Kick Candida for good.

Hi Suzanne, you don’t want to take any of the candida cleanse supplements while you are nursing, but you can follow the food recommendations of the candida cleanse which will still be beneficial and a very balancing diet. You might want to add more carbs though to keep your energy up.
Christa • Wed January 01, 2014

Hi CJ - thanks for asking! If you are taking antifungals you don’t need to stop taking your daily probiotic, you just want to take the probiotic and the antifungals at different times, because the antifungals are so strong that they will kill the probiotic.

Hi, thanks for a great post, it really speaks to me. Just one question: when would you start the supplements, during the diet, or after the 6 week mark and the spit test comes back okay? Will have to look into whether I can get my hands on the supplements in Europe as well. I've done candida diets before, but never got to the repopulate and eliminate phase. They make absolute sense though.

Lemon in the morning? I have an organic Key Lime tree in my backyard. I lime just as good as lemon or does lemons have special enzymes no in limes?

Other question... I have been making and consuming Kombucha for several years. It really helps give me an energy boost for teaching back to back spinning and yoga classes. After the initial cleanse can I go back to a daily glass of kombucha?

If you are ever in South Florida we should do a workshop for my students.

I really love your segments, but I think Randy asks the most unhelpful questions, it's almost like he's hitting on Christa and want's to know more about her life instead of the health topic @ hand. You should really try and educate him more on how a educational program should go.

Christa • Wed February 26, 2014
Comment
Hi Jessica! Yes, eggs are allowed on the cleanse. ? As for your current supplements, you’d take the sludgy cocktail away from hormones/meds and you should be okay. I don’t see any interaction issues with the list of supps you listed.
Christa • Wed February 26, 2014
Comment
Hi Megan! It is safe to do a candida cleanse as long as you concurrently and gently chelate metals out of the blood (that may have potentially leaked from the fillings). I address this in depth and give a protocol for it in the program. You would concurrently use chlorella and glutathione to keep you safe while cleansing.
Christa • Wed February 26, 2014
Comment
Hi Heidi! When doing this with children, just have them eat according to the diet plus an additional 10% carbs. I wouldn’t put them on supplements, but would rather make our dressings with the antifungals like our “Cleansing Pesto” and “High Garlic Italian Dressing” making sure they get these daily with meals. Olive leaf extract might be safe for kids and one cup of Pau D’arco tea daily, but double check that with your physician. You really want to be over age 12 to do the supplements. Kids are strong enough to eliminate it with diet only – plus a multi-strain probiotic and the yeast-eating strain of probiotic I recommend.
Christa • Wed February 26, 2014

Hi David, I have not found a bentonite that contains aluminum – did you look into Aztec Beauty? If you want to avoid bentonite altogether, activated charcoal is a good alternative.

Hi Jill! Absolutely, I go in deep depth of phase 2 of gut repair in our online candida course. It is very comprehensive to complete GI repair. If you grow legs and don’t sink, likely a 6 week cleanse (versus 8-10 weeks) is perfect for you and will get a lot of traction.

I purchased your candida cleanse program and was curious about your opinion of nightshade vegetables and low glycemic grains with hashimotos. I was always under the impression you avoid them at all costs if you have hashimotos but your cleanse includes these foods. What is your opinion? Thanks for all your advice and knowledge!
Christa • Mon March 03, 2014
Comment
Hi Emily!
Thank you so much for the great question! Because kombucha is fermented and can feed candida. Our goal of the candida cleanse is to clear out fermentation from the GI tract so that it is replaced by oxygen (new life and health). After that is established, you can go back to kombucha/fermented foods. Many great and noteworthy cleanses say otherwise, but this is the process I've developed that I've had lots of success with. Thanks again for your question!
Christa • Mon March 03, 2014
Comment
Hi Jessica!
It's better to avoid nightshades with Hashimoto's to give the immune system as little burden to deal with as possible. For grains, soaked brown rice and quinoa and millet should be fine as long they don't upset your stomach or give you brain fog. If they do, eliminate them - or perhaps add them after 30 days on the cleanse. Good luck!

Hi Christa,

I purchased your Candida Cleanse home course and I have a question about the bentonite clay. I cannot find "Aztec Beauty" anywhere but I did find "Health & Beauty Aztec Secret - Indian Healing Clay" at Whole Foods by the toothpaste just as you said (it's a short tub with a picture of a pyramid and a red sky on it.) Is that the one you recommend? If so, I noticed that it says in capital letters on the back "FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY". Is it safe to ingest especially considering that we need to consume it daily for several weeks while on the cleanse? I tried the other Intestinal Drawing Formula that you recommended but my body did not seem to like that. Thanks, Jill

christa, did you know that exhaustion is a big symptom of low level radioactive posioning? the japanese have a word for it , calling it the "burabura" disease...you, have a responsibility to report true facts in regard to radioactivity and the health consequenses. as i commented in another post, "the link to dr emery's (u of texas health science center)statement re: "that one could eat 14 to 22 lbs of cesium 137 contaminated fish a day and still be under the allowable limit." does not allow us to access the statement that you quote. So i urge you to listen to Dr stephen hosea from santa barbara, an infectous disease specialists, who gives a very informative talk about the dangers of radioactivity. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MHzZCR_0-Q
3 years and the plants still spew radioactivity into our atmosphere, and due to the jetstream that travels around the northern hemisphere every 40 days, we are being continually contaminated. the plant has been continually hemoraging radioactive water into the pacific for 3 years 24/7. no sardines, a two headed two tailed one torso whale found off the coast of baja, rarely seen oar fish washing up as close as the coast of oceanside, dead or dying baby seals and melting seastars, etc. DO NOT FEED YOUR CHILDREN TUNA OR ANY SEAFOOD FROM THE PACIFIC OCEAN...PERIOD. I URGE ALL PEOPLE TO RESEARCH THIS ISSUE. AUGUST OF 2011, 15 OF 15 PACIFIC BLUE FIN TUNA TESTED POSITIVE FOR CESIUM 137. RADIOACTIVITY IS CULMULATIVE, IT DOES NOT GET DILUTED.
PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN AND DO NOT EXPECT YOUR GOVERNMENT TO SAVE YOU, REMEMBER .51 CENTS ON EVERY TAX DOLLAR IS SPENT ON THE MILITARY, THE ONLY REASON FOR NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS IS TO MAKE BOMBS."
i again urge everyone to research this, and why do i continue to comment on your blog christine? because my best girlfriend of 25 years, believes what she sees and hears on the news, and refuses to do any research on her own about this issue. she is still breast feeding her baby. people such as yourself christa, have a responsibility to the public to report accurate information. i will not stop until you do. thank you.

Very Disappointed with The Interviewer, Randy.
He not only interrupted Christa constantly but fired question after question without letting Christa answer, he would cut her off or talk over her. It was very weird, as if he was competing knowledge with her, contradicting her.
I did not feel he was genuinely supporting her communication and seemed to have a hidden agenda.
Possibly, one of the worst interviews I've ever watched, no Sean Croxton that's 4 sure!
Sorry Randy undermined you Christa, the power struggle was blatantly obvious.

I have been doing the spit test for 3 days now. I definitely have some issues. From jellyfish to sweeping cloudy hairlike formations to just sinking right to the bottom. My husband did it today and he has the jellyfish. Do I need to do the whole 6 days or should I just sign up for the cleanse?

Hi Christa
I plan to start your cleanse at the end of Aug. Is it likely that the cleanse will eliminate any parasites or other fungal infections you may have?
Thanks!

Can tomatoes be consumed on this diet? What about lemons? Sprouted grains such as quinoa, buckwheat, millet, and flax? Thank you!!!

Hi Christa,
you talk about fermentation in the gut being one if the issues for yeast overgrowth, so would you recommend someone who benefited from a low FODMAPs diet to stop eating FODMAPs during this candida diet? Thanks for all the great, practical info.

Hi Christa, you recommend bone broth which is great, but forbid Apple cider vinegar in phase 1. I typically make broth using the vinegar. Should I use lemon juice or some other acidic medium during phase 1? Thank you!!

Hi Christa,
I was wondering how suitable your candida detox program would be for someone like me who doesn't eat meat other than seafood and eggs. Thanks.

Hey Christa,
I think someone mentioned homeopathics in an earlier comment, but it was never answered. Are they allowed on the cleanse even if they have alcohol in them?
