Chronic 'syndrome' complaints such as chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, fibromyalgia, and multiple allergies are increasingly being traced back to digestive disorders such as candida, parasites, leaky gut, and irritable bowel. These insidious afflictions can live with you for decades wrecking your digestion and taking the edge off of your performance. Candida is a yeast microbe that lives in our intestinal tract in balance with other more friendly 'bacteria.' But when bad eating habits, infections, antibiotics, alcohol and aspirin change that balance, candida takes over resulting in gas, bloat, lethargy, yeast infections and skin problems to name a few.
Over time, Candida develops into a fungus that sends roots (rhizoids) into our intestinal walls. Our intestinal lining is designed to absorb nutrients into our bloodstream and filter out bacteria and undigested proteins. This 25 foot long convoluted tube is made up of billions of protrusions called villi containing the cells and capillaries that send nutrients from our food into our bloodstream. When this forest of mucosal filters becomes irritated and weakened by candida and other parasites, the wall starts to break down and leaks bacteria and larger proteins into the bloodstream. Digestive disorders are only the beginning. Now you have a toxic dump inside you and an ongoing low level infection. Long term leaky gut toxicity has been implicated in everything from arthritis to allergies, eczema, asthma,...and so forth.
Since candida and parasites thrive on sugar, you can test yourself by eliminating all sugar for one-two weeks. If you improve, it is a sign you should commence an anti-candida, anti-parasite program. Be sure to eliminate sugar in all it forms, glucose, sucrose, fructose, maltose, any kind of 'ose,' and that includes good sweeteners such as barley malt and rice syrup. Also look for them as ingredients in prepared foods like breads and crackers. Try the white powder version of the sweet herb 'Stevia' as an alternative sweetener.From the Back Cover:
