candida overgrowthChances are, you have Candida overgrowth. We all have Candida, just like we all have bacteria. And like the microbes in our gut and the rest of our body, it’s all about balance. The problem is that in this day and age, our modern sugar laden, refined, and processed diet feeds Candida.

Here is an incomplete list of symptoms and other clues that are likely to be caused by too much yeast in your body. And while most (not all) of these can be signs of something else being out of balance, more often than not, if you regularly have even one of the symptoms, you’ve got too much Candida in your inner ecosystem.

Candida overgrowth & skin conditions

Most skin problems are a sign of Candida overgrowth.

Skin problems such as acne, Keratosis pilaris, dry skin, hives, rashes, dandruff, and eczema are a sign of too much fungus in the body. You know all those white bumps on the back of your arms? You’ve got Candida overgrowth. I’m not saying that whiteheads are fungus. It’s much more complicated that that. Sometimes aforementioned skin problems such as rashes are a direct result of fungal abundance, but other times, the issues are an indirect result of the colon microbes being out of balance. For instance, acne is often caused by hormonal issues. Hormonal issues are often caused by, exacerbated by, or at the very least virtually always accompanied by, out of control Candida.

Athlete’s foot and even an itchy arch are also a sure sign of too much Candida.

Diaper rash is almost always candida.

Itchy crotch, itchy vagina, yeast infections, and a funky discharge from the vagina and anus are sure signs of too much Candida.

If you need a shower every day in order not to itch, you’ve got too much yeast in your body. If you itch or feel a stinging sensation around your anus or your perineum when you wipe after bowel movements, that’s another sure sign. If it smells funky down there, while this may be perfectly normal, it’s also a sign of Candida overgrowth.

Body Odor
Yes, bacteria are one of the primary causes of body odor. But what many people don’t know is that “bad bacteria” (what we call bacteria that doesn’t benefit us) coincides with too much fungus in the body. If you need antiperspirant or deodorant and daily showers, again this is totally normal, but it’s a sign of too much fungus.

Trouble with digestion, gas, bloating
Digestive problems, gas, and bloating can be signs of other issues such as kidney problems, allergies, and more. But typically, whenever someone is unhealthy in one area, they also have Candida issues. Too much Candida in the gut means not enough beneficial bacteria to digest food properly, and this can cause fermentation. Too much Candida in the whole body and even the stomach and kidneys are affected. While we’re on the subject of gas, slow kidney function causes flatulence, and as mentioned, this can be caused by too much fungus.

Allergies and allergic reactions
Many times when people think they are having an allergic reaction due to a rash with hives, this is actually a spike in fungus that is out of control. Antibiotics cause these reactions in people regularly because they cull all of the beneficial bacteria that balance our body’s ecosystem.

Seasonal allergies and food allergies tend to vanish when Candida is brought completely under control. It sounds radical, I know, but it’s true.

Other signs of too much Candida include thrush or a white tongue, itchy ear canals, and sugar cravings. Candida overgrowth also leads to a host of other health issues from insomnia to severe mood swings. While Candida is not the sole cause of most health issues, it accompanies almost every health issue.

body careMost body care products that you buy from the store are full of harmful chemicals and toxins that don’t even clean your skin or hair properly. The products that are natural and organic that actually work are expensive. There is a perfect combination of inexpensive ingredients you can find in your kitchen that will give you the cleanest teeth, hair and skin you could imagine.


  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Baking Soda
  • Coconut Oil
  • Dr. Bronner’s Soap
  • Himalayan Pink Salt
  • Honey
  • Hydrogen Peroxide
  • Sugar
  • Directions

    Step 1: Oil Pulling:
    Take a tablespoon of coconut oil and put it in your mouth. If it was hard, it will liquify. Keep it in your mouth for about 20 minutes, gently swirling around in the mouth. When 20 minutes has gone, spit into a trash can or outside; don’t ever spit in a sink or toilet, as it could clog the drains. Oil pulling is excellent for dental hygiene, while protecting the teeth against bacterial rot and improving the digestive system by speeding up the metabolism.

    Coconut oil should be a staple at home. It is so incredible for you with its antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties. It can be used all over the body, a tablespoon for constipation, for cooking, for oil pulling, deep conditioning and more.

    Step 2: Conditioning the hair:
    Heat oil (olive, jojoba, almond, coconut, etc.) and pour warm oil on the roots and hair. Put hair up. This helps with hair growth and conditions the hair.

    Step 3: Cleaning the face:
    Spread honey all over the face and let sit for 20 minutes. The honey pulls out the toxins and black heads while tightening the skin.

    Step 4: Brushing your teeth:
    Mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda and add 1 teaspoon of Himalayan pink salt. After oil pulling, dip your brush into the tooth powder and brush away. You will have the cleanest and whitest teeth ever. You can also add coconut oil with the baking soda and salt to make a paste. The baking soda and salt help deep-clean the teeth and gums while making the teeth extra white.

    Step 5: Mouthwash:
    Rinse the mouth with hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide kills bacteria in the gums.

    Step 6: Cleaning the hair and face:
    Head for the shower. When you get in, rinse the honey off of your face. Grab the Dr. Bronner’s soap. Pour some in your hand and scrub into the hair and face.

    Step 7: Conditioning the hair:
    Take the bottle of apple cider vinegar and fill the capful. Pour capfuls onto the roots of the hair and let it drip down the rest of the hair. Try and get a bit of ACV on the entire head of hair. Then massage some into your face as a toner. Take a drink of the ACV and rinse off the face with water. Apple cider vinegar has incredible benefits for the body inside and out.

    Step 8: Scrubbing the skin:
    Take a handful of sugar and mix with Dr. Bronner’s Soap, then scrub your skin to remove all of the dead skin that rests on the surface. Rinse body completely.

    Step 9: Moisturizing the body:
    Once you dry off from your shower, take a bit of coconut oil and put a light layer on the skin, face, arms, hands, bottom of feet and anywhere else you want deep skin softening.

    Voila! You are extra clean and beautified with products from your kitchen. If you create this as your daily ritual, people in your life will start asking you why you look so good! You can tell that them its from your kitchen.

agingSugar has been shown to have a maturing influence. You do not need to cut it out of your life entirely, however absolutely cut down on it. In several research studies, it has been shown to actually lower life-span. Stick with foods that are normally sweet, like fruits, to help curb your sweet yearnings.

Use olive oil and keep in mind fat does not equal bad. Oils have actually gotten a bum rap but they are necessary to our wellness. The technique is to stay away from “fake” fats like trans fats. Using olive oil has lots of heart healthy advantages so do not shy away from using it. Try making your own tossed salad vinaigrette’s of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Take anti-aging supplements along with vitamins on a daily basis. Make sure to do your research on the supplements that you pick as they do not all act the same, work the same or contain the same ingredients. Your physician can also help recommend good supplements to add to your daily regimen.

To make sure you are getting ample nutrients in your life as you age, try drinking smoothies 3 to 4 times weekly. Smoothies taste fantastic and are chock full of good nutrients. They normally consist of approximately five nutritional portions of fruits and veggies. Even better, smoothies are rather filling, so as a light lunch or a treat, they can help you manage your yearnings and drop weight!

Skin Care

There are skin-care products that produce collagen in your face and in your neck. Collagen contributes much toward skin remaining firm and supple. However as you get older, obviously, it doesn’t stay that way. Nevertheless, a good skin care cream, used on a daily basis, will go a long way towards slowing down the effects of aging.

Focus on products to fit your skin type, conditions, body type, and age. Anti-aging products are as different as night and day: dry skin versus oily skin, 20-somethings versus the 50+ demographic, light skin versus dark, and on and on. So determine what you are, research the products that target what you are. Skin care is all about personalization. There’s no reason to settle for middle of the road, status quo. Find what works for you.

Aging and even retirement should be fun and rewarding. You are what you are and are fine just as you are. But, if you make the personal decision to counteract the part of aging you don’t like, that’s okay too. Go for it. Try a few of the things pointed out in this short article. You might find that these years are the best years.

It’s time to turn this whole health thing about face! If you try to detoxify your body from harmful chemicals, synthetic foods, heavy metal toxins, and so on, but you just ate gluten with the last 5 meals, you may be waiting quite a while for some results, especially the ones you can feel.

That’s really what it’s all about, how we feel. If you want to get anything done, and done right, you want to feel well during the effort, and when you’re done too, so you can enjoy and appreciate the results. That could mean a good pay check, great health, good times traveling or shopping, or simply peace of mind and relaxation.

If you want to quit smoking cigarettes, the best plan is to quit sugar, gluten, and hydrogenated oils first, for a week, and then think about the best plan for detoxifying your system. You gotta start with some greens, some spring water, and some fresh, raw organic vegetables, and then get to the big task in a week or so. Then again, how big of a task will it really be to QUIT SMOKING FOR GOOD when you are already feeling better? You may not want cigarettes any more, in fact, you’re going to DESPISE THEM when we’re done with you. It’s time to cut the habit by killing the urge. Here we go.

Replace and Replenish! Replace and Replenish!

We’ll say it over and over until it’s grinded into your brain like carving words into rock. You pull all your staple foods, drinks and personal care products that have toxins in them, one by one, from your shelves and counters and cabinets and the freezer and the fridge and your purse and the car, and you toss them out or give them away. Smile while you do it. It’s instant satisfaction like you’ve never felt before. It’s physical and mental. Snap to it! Do that first, then go to a couple stores, and you don’t have to break your wallet or empty your purse for these trips. Just buy for 3 days or so, then you’ll go back out with new ideas and creative REPLACEMENTS for your toxins that do NOT contain toxins. One by one by one, you replace and replenish with healthy items. It’s that simple.

You replace sugar with stevia sweet leaf (powder or tincture). You replace hydrogenated oils with organic coconut oil. You replace gluten with salads. You replace your toxic deodorant and antiperspirant (corporate made crap) with natural, organic products. If you can’t eat the ingredients as food, don’t put the stuff on your skin, hair, nails, face, anywhere!

Go on line, find some recipes for meals you love and REPLACE AND REPLENISH with healthy choices that are local or organic ingredients, and make a few new dishes. You can do it. Here are some recipe ideas right here:

Next, after two cycles of your 3 day stints with no chemicals in your body, especially no gluten, your system will have flushed the majority of chemicals that you consumed. Now on to the biggest and BEST PART of detoxification–quitting cigarettes.

Sure, your liver, kidneys, pancreas, bladder, colon and lungs are screaming for help. We got your back! There are a lot of detox programs and products and SCAMS out there, so you gotta watch out here. This is important. All you have to do is quit smoking. Your body is a machine and will repair itself with the right foods, and we’ve already got that covered. Ideal health is ALL ABOUT getting ideal vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and herbs, so now your mainly raw, organic, whole food regimen takes care of business for you. The KEY to quitting smoking, without medication, without gimmicks, without having to psyche yourself out of the hook, without patches, pills, or nicotine at all, is to REPLACE AND REPLENISH your natural dopamine levels in your body.

Yeah, we know, you’re asking out loud right now, “How do you do THAT?”



Mucuna, also known as Velvet Bean, is capturing the interest of thousands of smokers who have the desire and the will to quit cigarettes, but can’t handle the first couple of weeks of rollercoaster-like mood swings and basic withdrawal symptoms. The L-Dopa content of the unprocessed Mucuna bean powder is so powerful that doctors are also using it help Parkinson’s patients restore mental clarity, and as a mood elevator. ( A new study reveals Mucuna just might be that “missing rung” in the ladder that leads to great health for thousands more soon-to-be ex-smokers. The Mucuna extract contains a significant amount of naturally occurring L-dopa, an amino acid which converts into dopamine. Most commonly sold in powder form, this “herbal” remedy can be found all over the internet, and the 60 percent concentration can be found in vegetarian capsules that are high quality. ( This wondrous Ayervetic Indian herb is known by many names, including sea beans, buffalo beans, Dopabean, Pruriens, Cowitch, Kapikachu and Atmagupta. The main medicinal benefits come from the seeds, but the pod and the roots can also be used. The velvety beans are actually drift seeds, meaning they can float away on ocean currents and re-plant themselves all over the world.

Research shows L-Dopa provides a wide variety of health benefits. All non-smokers should peruse these benefits as well: • Regeneration of organs (heart, kidneys, liver, lungs) • Dramatically strengthen immune system • Improved sleep • Reduced body fat and cellulite • Improved skin appearance • Increased mood and sense of well being • Increased bone density (very necessary after toxin overload from cigarettes)

The Smoking Scam Defeated

Marlboro is “Marlboro,” the number one selling premium brand cigarette in the world, because of the highest potency rating of their “custom made” nicotine delivery device. Make no mistake about it. The other KINGS of the industry are all in on the evil trick also, including Winston, Lucky Strike, Kool, Parliament, Pall Mall, Camel, Newport, and of course, the Menthols. ( The scam to hook smokers by using ammonia to strengthen the nicotine addiction WORKS, and the 4,000 plus chemicals in commercial cigarettes are no joke, leading the smoker right off the cliff, where they feel like their only way out of feeling awful is to light up. The U.S., Japan, and China alone make up over 75% of the world’s smokers. ( Now, along comes Mucuna, the most essential element of the escape. This inexpensive natural herb is easily assimilated by the body and the effects show up within days. Mucuna’s L-Dopa can improve circulation, energy, youthful skin, and general enthusiasm for life. What more could a smoker ask for, after just bombarding their body with pesticide, ammonia and bleach?

The most essential element of the escape

One all natural method to quitting cigarettes incorporates Mucuna into the nutritional “phase” of cessation, which, according to the program 14AndOut, is the third and final phase. ( New research shows that smokers are using Mucuna to “replace and replenish” dopamine levels during the first few weeks of cessation which kills the urge to smoke, and in turns ends the habit in 14 days or fewer.

The research shows that Mucuna works for quitting cold turkey and for weaning, but that best results come from weaning the smoker off nicotine over a 14 day period. This completely natural, legal, and results-proving substitute for nicotine is ending the cravings of ex-smokers so they never go “back to the well” to satisfy the old chemically-induced “nic fit.” Mucuna is the kryptonite of Big Tobacco’s “super” scam. Once smokers understand the specific chemicals in commercial cigarettes which drive them down and essentially create the need for dopamine, they have completed phase I of 14AndOut.

In phase II, the smoker learns how to substitute good behaviors for the previous health-damaging ones, such as breathing patterns and “hand to mouth” habits. Lastly, the program educates smokers about nutrition and how diseases cannot survive in an “alkalized system.” This is when the smoker shifts his/her diet, reducing the acid heavy system, which is all part of the hook of smoking.
