I know that doctors do not believe that there is connection between UC/Crohn's and Candida growth. Even if you have candida and do stool studies, they will not be found in your stool because they don't come out unless you stop feeding them off with high refined sugars.
First of all, Candida lives in body with acidic condition. If your body's pH level is down then they will grow more(drinking will help them grow). So start taking coral calcium to boost your pH along with some drops of lemons in your drinks.
Second of all, if you take prednisone or antacids like Zantac or etc. they will grow out of control for sure because your immune system is down. And reducing your stomach acid will kill less bad bacteria that's coming from outside. (alcohol contributes to yeast growth too)
Third of all, look for signs. do you have white zit pimples before a flare up? They are toxins released from the yeast. After doing yeast detox I'm white zit free but left with some scars. Also, anxiety attacks. I wasn't even able to drive around because my anxiety attacks would kick in at anytime. Do you have cravings? Yeast makes you get sugar cravings. do you have ezcema? Are you always fatigued? Do you have a lot of dead cells? white dry skin in your body? mental confusion?
I had all these symptoms and remember yeast produces over 100 symptoms so it's very hard to catch.
I started taking threelac with oxygen element max from GHT then over the whole regimen diet. and its expensive but right now I'm very good. symptom free almost I'd say. But the detox phase was crazy. I was going to the bathroom and crapping out yeast. You can tell that those were yeast because you can see the strings of the yeast meaning their legs floating. I had bleeding too. and these blood had legs of yeast too which meant that i was crapping out the yeast that were attached to my intestines.
Don't jump to conclusions. This is just my personal experience. I was told about this procedure from someone else who cured their UC through the same method. I didn't believe him at first because the detox phase is horrible(nauseous for a week). I'm in college doing fine at the point. Just need to start putting some weight back.
So the results for me:
1. No more anxiety attack or heart palpitations in random places or even in my big lecture hall with 500 kids.
2. Driving around with anxiety free symptoms.
3. UC symptoms fading away slowly.
4. Less fatigued everyday
5. On no medications. not even asacol.
6. No more white zit acne or ezcema or psoriasis.
7. Good appetite.
8. Never having nauseous feeling. Never having throwing up feeling.
9. Very little urgency to the bathroom
By the way, I drink no stimulants. No coffee, no redbull. Nothing high in sugar. No yeast-bread. No pizza. No sodas(havent had for three months),
but I eat multi-grain(whoe wheat), turkey/chicken, lettuce, cooked asparagus/broccoli, banana(once a day), sometimes organic apple juice, aloe vera juice, digestive enzymes, etc.
Choose wisely. You might experience more bleeding through this phase. It worked for me. and I will update on my condition week or so.
And doctors really don't believe that yeast can cause UC. At least for me it did.
