Candida:
The most effective supplements:
-Probiotics (non-dairy)
-Iodine: experiment with different types
-Parasite eliminators: Black Walnut, Cloves & Wormwood
-Enzymes with high doses of Cellulase taken on an empty stomach
-Allicin (from garlic)

Very Important Recommendations:
-Make sure to drink plenty of (pure) water.
-Get plenty of exercise. Exercise is an essential part of being healed of Candida that is often overlooked.

Things you may not know:
-You don’t need to have a vaginal yeast infection in order to have Candida. That’s just one of the obvious signs.
-Iron (The Catch-22): Low iron can cause Candida yet iron feeds yeast. Individuals taking iron supplements to treat anemia & related disorders have an increased risk of getting candida infections. So unless you don’t have to, don’t take iron supplements or find one that’s yeast-free.
-Maltodextrin can function as a sugar, so avoid it to be on the safe side.

UTI Remedy: D-Mannose Powder may be the best, most effective treatment for UTIs. It also seems to act as a preventive. Most users find the powder form better than capsules, though both can work well. Make sure it’s 100% pure D-Mannose without any other ingredients including cranberry. While there are many ways you can take this, away from food with plenty of water, seems to be the beneficial. These tips are especially useful for those that get chronic UTIs. If you have an infection, take it every 3-4 hr until you find relief. Then you can cut back. Taking a maintenance dose is a good idea if you’re prone to UTIs. Make sure to drink plenty of (pure) water daily as this is imperative for proper kidney health. For those that get UTIs primarily due to sex, take D-Mannose before & afterward, make sure to urinate before & after and continue with maintenance dose.

Uva Ursi capsules are often a quick solution for a mild UTI.

Triggers:
Dehydration
Not Urinating frequently enough
Sex
Caffeine (especially excessive)
Alcohol (especially excessive)
Aspirin (or non-aspirin pain relievers)

Food Poisoning: Charcoal caps or Calcium Bentonite Clay Powder. Electrolytes for later recovery: Fresh Coconut water is the best, but packaged often can work as well.

Personal Care Tips

Hair Conditioner-Only Method (CO Wash)

Many benefits often experienced:
Less or no gray or white hairs
Promotes hair growth
Improves condition of hair
For many it saves money

Detailed Method: Find a conditioner with a thin consistency (preferably without cones in it-basically any ingredient with that word in it). Many people like using the cheap ones, though chemical-free natural ones are recommended. Wet your hair, adding a large amount of the conditioner on it. You can dilute conditioner with water if you choose. Spend as long as you can massaging it into your scalp. Once all your hair is well coated in the conditioner, leave it on for as long as you can (the longer the better). Usually anywhere from 2-5 minutes is good. 20-30 minutes, even better. Rinse well. You don’t have to do this daily-2-3x wk, other days you can just do it quickly or water rinse well. It’s better not to wash scalp daily.

Quick Method: Put a large amount of conditioner in your hair, scrub your scalp some, leave it in a minute or two (the longer the better) & rinse.

Quicker Method: Apply conditioner outside of shower on dry or water-sprayed hair. Leave on as short or as long as you want (the longer the better). Rinse off in shower or sink.

Facial Washing: The Oil Cleansing Method (OCM)

Beneficial for all skin types including oily skin prone to breakouts.

Mix up a blend of extra virgin olive oil & castor oil or any other natural, unprocessed oils that you prefer. Massage a small amount of the oils gently into all areas of your face for a few minutes. This allows the oils to penetrate into the skin & pull out wastes, bacteria, dead cells & other dirt. Wring out a facecloth or washcloth in hot water, & drape it over your face to steam. After a minute or so, wipe away the oil, along with any dirt, using the washcloth. Your skin should feel clean, soft, & moist with just a little of the OCM oil remaining on your face. If skin feels dry and tight, you can moisturize it using just a touch of the olive oil/castor oil blend. You may want to experiment with different oils to find out which work best for your skin type. Jojoba & coconut are two of the most popular. You can also try out different variations of this cleanse such as using a face brush or wiping off oil with cotton pads, especially if you wear makeup.

Other Tips:

All-in-one Moisturizer: A pure, natural butter or oil can take the place of many products for hair, body, lips & many other things. Shea Butter & jojoba oil are two of the top ones, but many others work too. These are typically found in the health store on on-line as the drugstore brands contain toxins.
