Candida is a word that we’re all familiar with these days.
It seems to have become the catch all for such a long list of symptoms, it seems like everybody can have candida if they stumble across a symptoms list.
I did it myself recently and convinced myself I had candida overgrowth.
Thankfully I have now had the truth about candida revealed to me, and this goes against all of the advice you will get on almost every other website.

In this video I share what’s really happening in our bodies when we have an overgrowth of candida and what we can do about (totally different from anything out there).
I am going to be sharing a new approach to battling candida.
Now, quite recently, I suspected that I had an overgrowth of candida.
I was having various symptoms on and off throughout my life, I’ve probably had an overgrowth of candida apart from, I think two occasions in my life where I’ve had slight fungal toenails.

Lately, I was getting yeast infections and my sugar cravings were completely crazy, and I was thinking, “What is wrong with me?”
I started Googling it, and all the signs pointed to an overgrowth of candida, so I thought, “Okay, I will go on a new diet. I will go on an anti-candida diet.”
So I started this diet, which (if you’ve ever been on this kind of diet), you will know that you cut out sugar, cut out most fruits, you mainly eat food like, animal products like meat and eggs and vegetables, and that’s the diet that you stick to for a long time.
Could be months, could be, like, six weeks, eight weeks, months, half a year, whatever, and then you also start taking supplements as well.
And so I started this diet, and I also started to take two products that I think made me quite ill actually.
This is quite common advice for people who are going on an anti-candida diet that they take different supplements, and these supplements that were recommended were diatomaceous earth and bentonite clay.
And the advice is to mix them together into a glass of water, and I started to do that. And within about, maybe about four days of doing this, I started to not feel very well at all!
And I was getting, I had a pain in my chest, in my heart, and my arms were going numb all the way down my arms, and I was lying there one evening thinking, “I feel like I’m having a heart attack.”
I just Googled am ‘I having a heart attack?’ and it said you should get yourself to the hospital.
And I thought about it, and I thought, “Oh no, I really, I just don’t want to sit in that hospital all night, and maybe I would have rather died than go to the hospital.”
But that’s certainly not the advice that I’d give to anybody else, of course!
If it was somebody else, I would’ve taken them, but for me, I don’t know why I didn’t go. I just told myself over and over, you’ll be fine, you’ll be fine, you’ll be fine, you’ll be fine.
And went to bed and didn’t sleep very well, but I woke up in the morning and did feel a little bit better, and it started to ease off, so I thought, “Thank goodness.”
And then I started to read about these products, and I probably should have done that before, but you read on good stuff first. You start it, and when it doesn’t agree with you, and then you read all the bad stuff.
Anyways they said that really, we should not be consuming these products at all. They’re not fit for human consumption, that there hasn’t really been any scientific research done. There hasn’t really been any benefit.
People haven’t really noticed any benefits, that they’re good to use on the outside of your skin, like on your teeth. They’re really good for cleaning teeth, but not for on the inside of your body…
So I stopped that and these symptoms started to go away, and they went away, thank goodness, because they were really not agreeing with me at all.
So I went researching, and I came across somebody that I used to really, really love and take advice from.
I really believed in him, and he is called Anthony William, and his website is the medicalmedium.com (I’ll link to everything that I’m sharing with you here at the end of the blog post).
And I discovered him maybe two years ago, and I had already followed a lot of his advice before I’d even heard of him, and it had worked for me.
So as soon as I heard what he talks about, which is a high fruit diet, he was somebody that I believed in.
And what he says just seems to make sense.
And I’m not the only one. He’s very, very popular, so go and check him out, because especially if you’ve got health problems, I really do believe that he’s got your best interests at heart.
A lot of people might think he’s a little bit wacky because he gets his information from spirit and not from scientific sources.
But, when you’ve been suffering like I’ve been suffering with chronic fatigue syndrome and these mystery health problems and nobody can help you, the doctors can’t help you, the naturopaths can’t help you, you seem to have tried everything under the sun, and nothing seems to be working, and people think, “Oh, are you just faking it? What’s wrong with you? You haven’t been diagnosed with anything. All of the tests have come back fine. Why don’t you just stop being lazy…” and you know, all these things.
You will grasp at anything to get better. You’ll try anything, and when somebody comes along and says, actually, science isn’t there yet, we’ve not found the answer to these mystery illnesses.
You think, actually, that sounds right to me because if they had found the answer, I would have gotten well.
It’s as simple as that! If science had found the answer, it would have worked for me.
So, Anthony William I believe, he does have the answers.
I followed his protocol, which I had, like I said, I’d previously done, which is a high fruit diet. Lots of fruit, vegetables, lots of raw fruit and vegetables. Nothing crazy. Natural supplements usually based on food-based products, like spirulina etc.
And I thought, “Well, that all seems, it’s not crazy!”
You might think it’s crazy where he gets his information, but the diet itself does not seem crazy at all.
So two years ago, I followed his protocol to the letter for I think it was two months, and I felt amazing.
I felt so, so good, and then stupidly, you stop doing these things, and you think, “Oh, I’m back to normal. I can just start living like everybody else.” And then you have the problems come back again.
Anyway, I found Anthony William, and he was talking about candida. So everything that I’m sharing with you today is actually from Anthony William. This is not something I Googled. It is not based on science.
It is based on his opinion who he says he gets the information from spirit, so just bear that in mind, because this is completely different to anything that anybody else has told you about candida.
Anthony says that candida is actually natural, which we know that everybody has candida and should have candida in their body. That’s a fact.
But, what we don’t know is that when we have too much candida, that that is actually the body trying to protect itself; it is the overgrowth of candida. It’s not actually the candida that’s causing your symptoms.
The candida is a warning sign to the body that something else is going on, so that’s the difference.
We’re not trying to kill off the candida because the candida is the problem, we’re trying to think, “Oh good, candida is sending us a warning sign that there’s some other problem, and usually, the problem is a virus, a bacteria, something like strep, that’s overtaking the body that we need to detox and get out of the body.”
What is causing it?
It could be things like a pathogen or virus?
So what kills the pathogen or virus that’s actually causing the problem?
And Anthony says that fruit and vegetables and leafy greens, they are the things that actually kill the virus, is a lot of fruit.
Now, this is completely contradictory to any of the other information that you’ll get about candida. Most of the time they tell you to cut out fruit because it’s too high in sugar, but the sugar from the fruit is completely different, and the body does handle it in a completely different way to refined sugar.
And Anthony says that when the fruit goes into your stomach, it leaves within three to six minutes, and it doesn’t actually go anywhere near the intestinal tract at all, so it can’t be causing the problem.
It actually helps the problem, and he says what makes the problem worse, what makes the virus proliferate in the body, is things like animal products and high fat, so that’s exactly why most people don’t recover when they’re on an anti-candida diet.
Anthony says what we have to do is we have to bring the body back into balance again, and we have to increase the amount of good bacteria in the body.
These are some of the things that he says are really good for bringing the body back into balance, so we can get the candida down, and we can kill off the problem, the virus that’s actually causing the problem, things like raspberries, grapefruit, cucumber, spinach, tomato, avocado, coconut, and vitamins like B12 and barley grass powder (which is great for detoxing the body and bringing it back into alignment again) etc.
And we’re also to avoid antibiotics and antifungal medications because they actually make the problem worse. But we can have some natural antifungals in our diet which will help to kill the pathogens and the viruses that have overtaken our body.
So these are four things that I do.
This is something that you might hear on other anti-candida protocols that actually do help, and these are natural antifungals, these from natural sources that actually help the body.
The first one is oregano.
I’ve got some Oregano essential oil and it is completely pure. I wouldn’t take anything that’s got more than one ingredient in the ingredient list because that might be adulterated with all kinds of nasty things you don’t want in your body (I’ll leave a link to below to this source as well).
And I would put four drops of it into an empty veggie capsule, and swallow that, so basically, I’m making my own supplements.
I’d also do the same with the Grapefruit Seed Extract because that doesn’t taste nice. You can put that in water and dilute it, but it really doesn’t taste nice, so I put that in a capsule as well.
And another thing I use is this Advanced Cellular Silver, and this is really good for killing off any viruses in the body, and I actually use this daily. What I do is I spray this six times into my mouth, I swish it around my mouth, and then swallow it. The reason why I do that as well is because of my tooth because I’ve got an implant in my tooth, and I’ve been told it hasn’t been put in very well and there’s a very high chance of infection in the future. I take this to kill off anything that might be causing me infection, and so far, it’s worked.
I’ve had about eight or nine months of using this, and the infection hasn’t come back, so I’ll keep you posted on that.
That’s possibly good for so many things like if you have any kind of pain or rash, you can spray that on the outside of your body, and it takes it away.
We’ve used it for everything. Basically, if my kids fall or get a cut, I put that on and then I put an ointment with some essential oils after it, and I just, that’s what I use on everything now. So that is amazing stuff.
The final thing I do, is I use a proper herbal tea.
If you haven’t watched my other video on The Deadly Ingredient Lurking In Your Herbal Tea, go and watch that now because that is why I now buy proper herbal teas.
This tea looks like kind of tree bark or hay or, straw or something like that and it is really good for the immune system and it’s very good at naturally killing off any viruses in your body as well and so this strengthens your body, and it removes nasties from your body.
It’s really good for you.
What I do is I take one of these little tea strainers that has got a lid that goes on top of it, and what you do is you put the tea inside it, drop it into your cup of tea, and this one is amazing because it has got a little string on it and you attach that to the handle of your tea cup, and it just dangles in there.
It strains the tea, and I just leave it in there as long as I can, maybe like 10 or 15 minutes, and that is the best way to drink herbal tea, by using one of these tea strainers.
Use leaves rather than tea bags, because in tea bags they tend to put all kinds of nasties in them that you might forget to check the ingredients.
That’s my natural antifungal set, and I am cycling through them.
I’m taking one every day for four days, and then I’m moving on to the next one, and that’s the way I’m trying to get rid of any viruses or bacteria. I don’t actually know what it is that’s in my body.
I’ve stopped going down the path with the naturopath and the testing. All tests were so expensive and Anthony William, he said that most test are not accurate anyway, so you could be just wasting your money.
So I am just gonna go down the path of healing from now on.
I’m just going to focus on keeping my diet very, very clean including lots of fruit, lots of leafy greens which are amazing for healing, lots of vegetables etc.
I’m back on a plant based diet, and I’m already feeling a lot better, a lot more like myself.
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now.
So it’s yeah, I’m definitely on the right track for my own body.

Resources mentioned in today’s video:
- The Medical Medium
I truly believe that Anthony William has the only true information about candida that exists in the world today. I followed a protocol very similar to his before I even heard about him, so I have put his advice to the test twice now with great results. So that’s why I trust every word he says. Not only have I had the results, but I just believe him because what he says just makes so much sense on so many levels. This would be common sense if more people could hear about it. So here I am spreading the word about it too.
I highly recommend his New York Times Best Selling book, The Medical Medium. Don’t just take my word for it. Read the thousands of reviews from people who have also had their lives changed by his unique message. If you have any health problems at all, or don’t want any in the future, I strongly recommend this book never leaves your side!

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
