Candida is a fungus that becomes progressively worse if untreated. The Candida fungus results from an overly acidic body.
If you have several of these symptoms, it is not necessary to take the Candida test located at http://www.doctorajadams.com/CandidaCultureLabPurchase.html
However, you may wish to utilize the test after treatment. The same is true for the Intestinal Permeability Assessment [Urine Test for Leaky Gut], located at http://www.doctorajadams.com/IntestinalPermeabilityLabBuy.html

The body is comprised of approximately 92% minerals, all of which are critically important. Some minerals are regarded as nutritious and some are regarded as toxic metals. Disease can result from an excess or deficiency of minerals. In fact, it is possible to acquire a disease based on a deficiency of only one mineral. On the other hand, many illnesses develop, not because of heredity, but through high levels of heavy metal toxicity which depress the immune system, thereby evoking diseases to enter the body. When mineral deficiencies occur, toxic metals replace the missing essential minerals in enzyme binding sites. This allows the body to survive in the face of nutrient deficiencies. Diseases that may result from heavy metal poisoning include heart disease, cancer, diabetes, fatigue, depression, anxiety, infections and many other conditions. However, heavy metal detoxification is possible thru nutritional therapy, which involves reversing disease processes by replacing the toxic metals with the preferred vital minerals. By correcting tissue mineral levels and ratios with proper dietary modifications, nutritional supplementation and lifestyle changes, many physical, mental, emotional and behavioral health conditions, including those of long standing, will improve.
Naturopathic Medicine believes that the Candida fungus is at the root of most chronic digestive tract disorders, including acid reflux, severe gastroesophageal reflux [GERD], IBS, Crohn's disease, thrush on tongue, hiatal hernia, ulcerative colitis, etc. It is also the source of most vaginal and rectal yeast infections. Candida fungus results from an overly acidic body. Candida is a yeast fungus, which often includes a parasitic infection, that physically invades various organ systems. Systemic means that it is in the bloodstream. Because of its viscous nature, it blocks adequate oxygen flow and interferes with normal organ processes, thereby disrupting their functions. Since candida is a fungus, it requires an anti-fungal substance. Naturally as a Naturopath, I do not endorse synthetic anti-fungals, such as nysatin or diflucan.
Leaky gut can result in a loss of immune function because vital nutrients that are needed for a healthy reproductive system may leak out thru the walls of the intestines. Leaky Gut is the name of the syndrome describing an unfavorable increase in intestinal permeability which causes nutrients to leak out. Undigested macromolecule food particles and toxins are allowed to pass directly into the body, creating a variety of problems including triggering an immune response sensitizing the individual to normally harmless molecules. When this occurs some people become hypersensitive to environmental substances or develop multiple food allergies. These undigested particles may also pass through the blood-brain barrier where they can be mistaken for neurotransmitters, leading to mental symptoms that may create abnormal behavior. The small intestine has the paradoxical dual function of being a digestive/ absorptive organ for nutrients as well as a powerful barrier against the excessive absorption of bacteria, food antigens and large molecules. Increased permeability of the intestinal mucosal barrier can swell the number of toxins and antigens entering the bloodstream and lead to an overly sensitized immune system in some individuals. Decreased permeability, on the other hand, appears as a fundamental cause of malnutrition, malabsorption and failure to thrive. A number of clinical disorders are associated with both conditions.
In other words, the small intestine has to be able to both digest and absorb nutrients. It also has the important immune function of keeping out excessive absorption of bacteria, substances that trigger allergies, and other large toxic compounds that do not belong in the body. If the gut is too permeable [leaky gut], these substances will
Both malabsorption and increased intestinal permeability ["leaky gut"] are associated with chronic gastrointestinal imbalances as well as many systemic disorders, such as...
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ IBS [Inflammatory Bowel Disease]
Naturopathic Medicine believes that disorders, including Candida and Leaky Gut Syndrome, regardless of severity, are most likely a direct or indirect result of nutritional imbalances as well as an accumulation of toxic substances. When the nutritional and the acid-alkaline imbalances are corrected, and the body is adequately detoxified, the disorders remedy themselves while restoring normal organ function.
The key factor to reversing disease is maintaining a balanced acid-alkaline state in the body. When this balance is maintained, the body is a well-oxygenated environment. An acid is a caustic erosive sour substance that has an electropositive charge. An acidic body [acidosis] does not oxygenate properly and the body's ability to heal itself is impaired. This impairment is characterized by sick blood, diseased cells, inflammation, excess body fat and suppressed
pH [potential of hydrogen concentration] is the term used to identify the intensity of an acid or alkali. The potential ranges from 0 [extreme acidic] to 14 [extreme alkaline]. There is a tenfold difference between each number. For instance, pH 5 is 10 times more acidic as pH 6. Optimally, we want the fluids in our bodies to have a neutral pH level, which is 7.0-7.2. No health disorder or disease can possibly sustain itself when the pH is maintained in the neutral zone. At this level, the body is highly oxygenated; it detoxifies and heals itself; its cells are energized; and it has a strong immunity to all diseases.
A pH less than 5.3 indicates an inability to assimilate vitamins or minerals. Since most of the body is water-based (50-60%), the pH level has profound effects on all body chemistry, health and disease. All regulatory mechanisms [including breathing, circulation, digestion, hormonal production] serve the purpose of balancing pH by removing caustic metabolized acid residues from body tissues without damaging living cells. If the pH deviates too far to the acid side or

Everyone has a unique body timetable for healing, which is based on their current level of toxicity, nutritional imbalance, as well as compliance to the dietary suggestions and taking the nutritional supplements.
Foods are categorized as alkaline or acidic according to type of residue that remains after the food is digested. Eat at least 80% Alkaline Foods per day of the ones that you can tolerate. Be sure to keep the very sweet fruits to a minimum or eliminate them totally.
Common Alkaline Producing Foods:
The supplements that I suggest for both Candida and Leaky Gut Syndrome are all from natural food sources and do not have to be gradually introduced to the body. This protocol will also address Lipomas [Benign Fatty Tumors].
For Candida and/or Leaky Gut syndrome, my protocol is the following:
I strongly suggest both the Oil Of Oregano P73 Physician's Strength and the Colloidal Silver 500ppm.
I have never known of any antimicrobials better than the Oil Of Oregano P73 Physician's Strength and the Colloidal Silver 500ppm. First drink the Colloidal Silver, and follow immediately with the Oregano Oil.
Colloidal Silver 500ppm, located at
Regarding the safety of colloidal silver: The colloidal silver that I carry is very safe, as per the webpage located at http://www.doctorajadams.com/ColloidalSilver.html
Oil Of Oregano P73 Physician's Strength:
Wild Oregano P73 [polyphenol 73%] formula is the most extensively researched and the only tested oregano product on the market today. P73 formula is 3 times more concentrated than regular oil of oregano. It is often used for drug-resistant bacteria. Oregano oil has been tested against a variety of microorganisms [infections] and is found to exert a high degree of anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, anti-viral and antibacterial actions. Beware of imitators! "Oreganum vulgare" is not the same as the P73 formula and has no similarities except taste. Beware also of thymol found in inferior grades. 5% or more of thymol makes it a harmful substance. Any oregano product with less than 40% carvacrol is inferior [P73 formula has 62%].
If by some remote chance that the combination of these 2 antimicrobials [Oil Of Oregano P73 Physician's Strength and the Colloidal Silver 500ppm] do not seem to make a significance difference when used as directed, then I suggest that you add Garlic Kyolic Organic Liquid #10020, located at http://www.doctorajadams.com/NutritionalSupplement854.html
And For detoxification, Essiac Tonic Liquid Drops, located at
Instructions: Take the Essiac Tonic Liquid Drops on an empty stomach. Add 40 drops to 2-4 ounces of water 3 times daily. Wait 30 minutes before eating [If you have already eaten, wait 2 hours]. The number of drops in a bottle of liquid extract will vary depending on the viscosity (thickness) of the extract and its molecular weight. A 2-ounce bottle may range from 2000 drops to 2500 drops. Therefore this 2-ounce bottle will last 17-21 days, taking 120 drops per day. Take it for 32 days and then take one week off. Repeat the cycle as needed.
If vaginal yeast discharge and/or anal discharge is present, I suggest that you insert 2 capsules vaginally and 2 capsules rectally at bedtime. Moisten the capsules with water and place them in a vaginal applicator, which comes with standard OTC yeast creams. I do not suggest using the yeast cream, only the applicator. Insert the applicator as high as comfortably possible into the vaginal and/or anal canal.

Flora Immune Probiotics [Dairy-Free]:
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria, which are vital to the health of the intestinal tract. When intestinal probiotics are deficient, candida yeast infections and leaky gut syndrome result. These friendly beneficial bacteria have been successfully used to rid the body of many dangerous microorganisms, and unlike drugs, herbs, vitamins and minerals, it is impossible to overdose on probiotics. Without them, nutrients lose much of their
Essential Nutrients That Are Required For Health & Healing:
The following basic essential nutrients are required for health and healing by each body system. If your current regimen of nutritional supplements have not made a significant difference in your overall health, there is a good chance that that are not being properly absorbed. Please read each webpage very carefully for the details of the nutritional supplement. I strongly suggest the following:
Comprehensive Liquid Vitamin/Mineral [Plant-Derived]
Calcium Magnesium Powder:
Aloe Vera [Aloe Immune]:
Aloe has shown the most promise in treating microbial infections [viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasitic] by boosting the immune system, which results in its response to antigens (foreign elements in the body). It is clear from research conducted throughout the world over the past thirty years that Aloe Immune contains certain specific substances in the plant, which have very dramatic and impressive anti-microbial effects. Aloe vera has been demonstrated to promote the growth of new and healthy cells, and reduce the overall microbial load within the body. Science has shown a very powerful Phytochemical found in Aloe Vera which is in a special category of Mucopoly-saccharides. These are super antioxidants that bind free radicals on the outside of cells and unlike other antioxidants they also work inside the cell. There is a critical deficiency of these factors in our diet. This product goes far beyond how other anti-oxidants function. Aloe vera contains a number of chemicals that enhance the activities of all of the immune system functions. 23 Polypeptides serve as immune system stimulators, helping to control a broad spectrum of immune system diseases and disorders. 20 Polysaccharides increase the action of white blood cells thus increasing the production of "killer" T-cells and interferon. They also chemically enhance the action of the "killer" T-cells. One of these polysaccharides, acelated mannose, has been patented as acemannen and is approved in Europe to stimulate the immune system. Galactomannans are a class of long chain sugars derived from plants, which have been shown in laboratory and clinical studies to have a wide variety of immune stimulating and protective effects within the body, in studying the different sources of this polymer, it has been discovered that the Aloe Vera barbadensis plant contains the greatest concentration of acetylated mannan which is also the most active form of mannans. This "acemannan" has been shown to have many effects in the body, mostly impacting on the gastrointestinal and immune systems, which are intricately related. The aloe polymannans in Aloe Immune is as pure as it gets. The proprietary process of Aloe Immune delivers concentrated nutrients at a fraction of the cost due to the use of dehydrated powder rather than a freeze or spray dried powder, or diluted juice form.
Omega 3 Softgels
I also strongly suggest Himalayan Goji Juice, located at
Himalayan Goji Juice is an alkalizing food, which has been revealed as probably the most nutritionally loaded food in the world, with an abundance of nutrients that are essential for
Also, I strongly suggest the Digestive enzymes located at
Toxic Substance that must be eliminated from diet and lifestyle:
Avoid prescription and over-the-counter antacids. They actually do more harm than good. 30% of Americans take antacids of some kind on a regular basis, and they actually believe that they are a safe solution from their digestion problems. Nothing could be further from the truth. 12,000 Americans die each year from esophageal cancer, and its major warning symptom is heartburn. Heartburn not only indicates possible GERD, but also possible bleeding ulcers or heart problems. Antacids not only interfere with normal digestion, but they also mask symptoms of the real underlying problems. Hydrochloric acid in the stomach is the only acid that the human body makes, and it is extremely necessary for every cellular and enzyme function in the body. It is also needed to kill harmful bacteria. When antacids block the production of this acid, indigestion is incomplete and results in fibrous parts of food that remain in the digestive system. There they clump together and form large masses known as bezoars, which require digestive enzymes, particularly cellulase, to be broken down and digested properly.
All sugar [including fruit temporarily], white flour products [including pastas], dairy products, alcoholic beverages, drugs, processed table salt, processed foods, pre-packaged foods, foods grown and processed with pesticides, preservatives, antibiotics, or hormones. These toxic substances increase inflammation, body acidity, candida, interfere with healing, as well as upset brain chemistry and hormone balance.
Avoid sugar because it contributes greatly to inflammation, body acidity, hormonal imbalance and candida. These include fruits, fruit juices [frozen, bottled, canned], cakes, candy, chewing gum, cookies, ice cream, jams, jelly, Jell-O, marmalades, pastries, pies, preserves, sherbets, soft drinks, sugared fruit, tapioca puddings, white sugar, syrup, processed commercial yogurt, brown sugar, fructose sugar, corn syrup, soft drinks, honey, dehydrated cane juice granules, barley malt syrup, brown rice syrup, date sugar, maple syrup, sucanat, sorghum, and most of all Splenda and Aspartame [NutriSweeet] and Alcoholic Beverages [beer, wine and hard liquor all turn to sugar in the blood]...Xylitol And Stevia are 2 very healthy natural sweeteners that are perfectly OK to use. Also unsulfured blackstrap molasses is OK.
Avoid dairy products [butter, cheese, milk, sour cream, whey, whipped cream, yogurt] because they contribute greatly to the spread of inflammation and body acidity.
Avoid white flour products because they contribute greatly to increased inflammation, body acidity, hormonal imbalance. These include cakes, pies, cookies, pastries, donuts, breads, crackers, rolls, biscuits, muffins, pancakes, pizzas, gravy, processed pasta [spaghetti, macaroni, ravioli, lasagna, noodles, dumplings]... Instead Use Whole-Grain Flour [Wheat, Brown Rice, Oat, Barley, etc]
Avoid processed table salt. It disrupts the body's normal pH, brain chemistry, hormonal balance, muscle function, and fluid levels. Use organic sea salt instead.
Avoid Processed Meats with toxic preservatives such as nitrates and nitrites [wieners, bologna, salami, pastrami, corned beef, bacon, ham, sausage, hot links]. They increase inflammation and body acidity.
Avoid ingesting chemicals such as nicotine, tobacco, pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, processed foods, pre-packaged foods, refined foods, and tap water because they contribute to liver toxicity and free radical damage. Synthetic chemical and substances cause cellular havoc in an attempt to digest them. The body can only safely digest natural whole foods.
Instead, eat lots of vegetables and fresh vegetable juices, whole grains, and meats only in moderation. Use organic if possible, or you may request suggestions on how to detox your own foods. Also drink 3 quarts of pure filtered water daily [EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR PREVENTING LIVER SLUGGISHNESS AND DEHYDRATION] and sleep at least 8 hours each night.
Avoid Personal items that are processed with any unnatural chemicals, dyes, inks, artificial fragrances. If any of the toxic substances are absorbed into your body, they are linked to a lowered immune system, increased inflammation, endometriosis, candida, and cancer...Undergarments, wash cloths, bath towels, bed linen, tissue paper, sanitary napkins, diapers, etc. Should be white, hypo-allergenic, made of cotton fibers. Menstruating females should use sanitary napkins instead of tampons, but if tampons are used they should be made with organically grown cotton fibers.
Avoid Toxic laundry and hygienic products...Use organic, or at least hypoallergenic [free of fragrances, dyes, inks] laundry and hygienic products that come in contact with your skin...Use 1 cup Clorox bleach with every laundry load to kill infections.
Avoid Toxic skin and hair products, toothpastes, mouthwashes, douche solutions, deodorants, make-up, nail polishes, nail glues, cosmetics, colognes, perfumes, lotions...Use only natural ingredients.

Once again: Naturopathic Medicine believes that health disorders, regardless of severity, are most likely a direct or indirect result of nutritional imbalances as well as an accumulation of toxic substances. When the nutritional and the acid-alkaline imbalances are corrected, and the body is adequately detoxified, the disorders remedy themselves while restoring normal organ function. Everyone has a unique body timetable for healing, which is based on their current level of toxicity, nutritional imbalance, as well as compliance to the dietary suggestions and taking the nutritional supplements.
