
A benign sugar
fermenting yeast.
Integral part of
intestinal ecology in
small amounts.
One of 600 strains
of Candida.
Can cause disease
when overgrowth
occurs.
What is Candida albicans?

Candida is a yeast that
is normally harmless as
a single-celled fungus.
If it changes into a
mycelial form it can
take root in tissues
and colonize.
Ecological Balance in GI Tract
Candida causes “leaky gut”
Imbalance of GI yeast vs good bacteria.

Immune dysfunction:
◦
◦
◦
◦

Exposure to toxic metals.
Internal toxins from poor digestion.
Stress
HIV
Reduction of good bacteria in the gut:
◦ Consumption of refined carbohydrates,
alcohol and caffeine.
◦ Antibiotics
◦ Immunosuppresive medications.

Upset in intestinal pH:
◦ Acid blocking medications.
◦ Decreasing digestive enzymes and HCL as we
age.
What causes Candida to grow?
Proliferation of Candida

Releases waste products called mycotoxins
(poisons) and oxalates.

These further weaken the immune system.
Candida By-products
Candida Toxic Waste = Acetaldehyde


Affects Central Nervous
System.
Interferes with
hormone metabolism:

Increased blood
alcohol levels.
◦ Brain fog symptoms
◦ Pituitary
◦ Thyroid
◦ Adrenal glands
Auto-Brewery Syndrome

Digestion of proteins =
beta-alanine.

Lowers Taurine levels.
◦ Taurine increases uptake
of magnesium & potassium
inside our cells.
◦ Taurine binds toxins and
removes them from the
liver.
Candida By-products

Silver amalgam dental fillings
have 53% mercury!

Mercury has an antibiotic
effect.

Difficult to control yeast
overgrowth.
Heavy Metals affect Candida
Women are more susceptible!
Women are 8
times more likely
to have a yeast
syndrome.
 Vaginal yeast
infections:

◦ With Antibiotics
◦ During pregnancy
◦ Using Oral
contraceptives
(OCP)

Progestin from OCP:
◦ Changes vaginal lining
◦ Causes release of yeastfeeding sugar into
bloodstream.

Candida Transmission
◦ Sexually
◦ Mother to newborn
 Thrush
 Diaper Rash
Candida affects all ages & gender
3 primary causes
 Parasites
 Hormonal
imbalance
 Food allergies

Altered bowel flora (bacteria balance)
Pregnancy
Predisposing Factors


◦ Sweets, alcohol,
carbonated drinks

Urticaria (hives)
Diabetes
Causes Major Health Issues

Mycotoxins in the bloodstream!
◦ Normally, the lining of the intestinal tract
prevents mycotoxins from entering the blood.
 Toxins
 Microorganisms
 Undigested food particles
◦ The body launches an immune reaction that
causes the allergic response.
Candida = Allergies
Healthy live blood
cell analysis vs
unhealthy
Leaky gut

Candida toxins in the bloodstream filter
through the liver.

From there, they proceed to other organs.
◦ Brain, Nervous System, joints, skin, etc.

If impaired liver detoxification ability
these toxins will not be eliminated and
can initiate states of chronic disease.
◦ Inadequate nutrition, poor cellular health
and/or toxic overload impair detoxification.
Candida Affects All Systems

◦ Essential oils
 Lemon, melaleuca,
oregano.
 GX assist capsules

Dietary changes!
 Gluten free
 Diary free
 YEAST FREE
 Consider other grains
 Corn/soy (consider)
 Try to do organic meats
and eggs

Candida Treatment
◦ Important to treat
Candida aggressively
and consistently.
◦ Candida can become
resistant to some
treatments.
◦ Essential oils have
many constituents
making resistance less
likely.
◦ Mix up your oils when
treating Candida.

Essential Oils for
targeted areas:
◦ Thyme & Clary Sage,
Clary Calm – female,
◦ Coriander & Myrrh – skin
◦ Cinnamon – blood sugar
◦ Clove – Thyroid
◦ Rosemary – Adrenals
◦ Grapefruit - Energy
◦ Take internally
◦ Apply to bottom of
feet
Candida and doTERRA
Candida overgrowth affects 8 out
of 10 people.
Dietary changes are the single
most important change necessary
to control Candida.
Improve your vitality & energy
while preventing inflammation
and chronic disease.
