Candida & Home Remedies

Hi Dear Grandma my name is Suny(female) and im 24 years old.

I have been having candida for years now and I have tried everything to get rid of it but nothing has worked. I have tried a healthy diet without sugar and white flour. I also have done some exercise to improve my health. The candida is making my life miserable for over 14 years now. I have yeast infections all the time, have a lot of slime in my throat and nose, I'm always tired and moody, and the worst part is that I always gain much weight and i can not lose it anymore.

Ever since I have gotten candida I have severe constipation even though I mostly drink a lot of water.

Please is there anything that i can do to get rid of Candida without buying expensive products and is there a cure for Candida?

Thanks Suny

Candida & Immune System
by: Grandma

Hello Suny,

I'm really sorry I couldn't get back to you until now. I was dealing with a personal issue that caused me to get away from my computer for the past week.

It sounds to me that you're dealing with a really weak immune system. Almost every adult carries the yeastlike fungus, Candida. But when you're immune system isn't up to par it's really hard to balance the healthy bacteria and yeasts in the body. So the first thing I'd recommend is to work on getting your immune system built back up. I'm a real believer in the right herbs to build the immune system, herbs like echinacea, astragalus and Siberian ginseng. Grapeseed extract is also highly effective antibiotic and fungicide. It will kill candida yeast without harming natural intestinal flora. You can buy these herbs in your local pharmacies or online. I buy all my herbs from one company because I totally trust their products. You can find them at:

I'd also suggest you invest in a neti-pot or at least make some nose drops from warm water and sea salt. You should also start gargling with salt water a couple of times a day to get rid of the mucus. You only need a generious pinch of sea salt in warm water to get results.

Keeping yourself from getting constipated is really important. I'd suggest you try the recipe I have on my website for the "Power Pudding". Just look for the button on the left for the recipe.

You also need to start restoring the good bacteria into your intestines. Eating yogurt with life bacteria cultures is highly recommended for candida. I know this all seems like a lot, and a bit overwhelming but take each of these recommendations one step at a time and you'll notice your health slowing returning. It isn't going to happen overnight, so stick with it.
