    I was hoping to cure Candida, digestive issues etc with extended water fast, probably hoping for some other miracles too. I read this article on the Candida Forum that suggests that water fasting only reduces candida/yeast issues and I would like to hear what other on the water fast board think.

    I am posting the article as reference message only. I did not know how to provide a link to the article.

    Wish I could highlight the areas that speak about water fasting - only a couple paragraphs, but you can scan through it.

    I believe this article is relevant to fasting since fasting itself is said to help cure colds, flu, skin diseases, inflammatory disorders, heart disease, obesity and its related complications and put auto-immune disorders in remission, and hypertension. (source Dr. Fuhrman's book and readings from natural hygiene website and soil and health).

    I do not recall how fasting behaves on parasites and fungal infections. The cold and flu are of viral origin which fasting seems to alleviate.

    So any reference from Dr. Fuhrman, Shelton or other natural hygiene doctors that say you can cure Candida via water fasting?

    The Article:

    Candida Treatment, the Right/Wrong Ways by Dr. Michael Biamonte by sickofhives

    Candida Support I have been a patient of Dr. Biamonte's for over a year. I started on his protocol, but because of extreme sensitivities to just about everything, I take some of his products and take ones I've found locally, to make things doable for me. I trust his logic and research, as very few doctors have done any research on the subject.

    I am posting this with his permission and believe it contains some very valuable information.

    If you suspect that you have Systemic Candidiasis (systemic means the
    infection has spread to other areas, and is not confined to the bowel
    or vaginal area but it does not mean that it is in your blood!),
    consider carefully the treatment recommended by your health
    practitioner. 80% of all the treatments, I have come across are either
    only temporary in reducing symptoms, very toxic to vital organs such
    as the liver, or would take years to truly handle systemic candida.
    Many Doctors rely on diet alone or medicines alone. The truth is you
    need both! Diet starves the Candida so that the medicines can kill


    At the Biamonte Center, the Candida Diet is used to weaken the Candida
    by starving it. This makes it more susceptible to the anti-yeast/
    anti- fungal substances that we use. The Candida Diet is not used to
    kill the Candida as its own weapon. Diet very rarely can eliminate
    Candida. Candida grows a root system into your blood vessels. Here it
    taps into your blood and feeds on blood glucose and other nutrients.
    There is always enough blood glucose to keep the Candida alive despite
    being on a low carbohydrate diet or even if you fasted. Fasting cannot
    kill Candida! This is because even when you fast, your body must keep
    a normal level of glucose (blood sugar) circulating for your brain and
    muscles to work. However, the low carb diet weakens it, like a weed
    which has had little water for some time.
    Even when it is barely alive, it can continue to survive. And if
    "watered and fed properly," could grow again, returning to its former
    glory. This is a very important concept to understand when we consider
    the importance and place the diet treatment holds in the elimination
    of Candida.


    When you cheat on the diet, the Candida can temporarily increase. If
    one cheats for 1 day on the diet but continues the Candida rotation
    and phase 0, little will happen to set one back. Any increase in
    growth can be reduced within 1-2 days. The more one cheats, the more
    Candida grows. If one does the program but does not follow the diet,
    either no progress will be made or the person will continually feel
    ill from feeding the Candida, then making it grow, and then killing it
    and becoming toxic from the dead Candida wastes!
    So when you cheat a day or so here and there on the diet, it does not
    defeat the entire program, providing that you stay on the anti-fungal
    rotation and Phase 0.


    Anyone who has been treated for Candida who still has any symptoms
    mentioned here should call our office and ask about our Candida urine
    test. Many approaches fail due to the lack of an accurate test to
    determine if the program is working and to determine when you are
    actually complete. Self treatments fail because the symptoms are used
    to judge your progress. It is possible to reduce the Candida enough to
    improve symptoms, but still have enough left that will gradually grow
    back in 3-6 months.


    The Biamonte Method of testing for Candida consists of a first morning
    urine sample. The urine test kit can be provided online or by our
    center, the test kit comes with detailed instructions and color charts
    that guide you through doing the test in your own home.


    The urine is tested within the first hour of voiding for accuracy.
    After the hour has passed chemical reactions will occur that will
    lower the accuracy. Candida test measures chemical waste products from
    harmful bacteria and parasites, waste products that are produced as a
    by-product of Candida's own metabolisms and free radical reactions
    that occur from the alcohol by products of Candida. Bacteria, yeasts
    and parasites produce "organic acids" unique to themselves. This can
    be thought of as chemicals that are produced by the organisms that are
    not produced by our own bodies. These chemicals serve as footprints of
    these organisms. We measure these wastes in the urine to determine if
    they are in a range we consider being consistent with Candida
    overgrowth. Although, those who have a poor immune system can
    experience "Candida symptoms", at low levels.


    The most well known medicine for Candida might be Nystatin. According
    to the PDR, no detectable blood levels are found following oral
    administration of the drug at recommended doses. It is, therefore,
    effective at reducing localized vaginal or intestinal yeast growth,
    but cannot travel through the blood stream to handle the infections in
    other areas. Another drug Nizoral impairs the productions of
    ergosterol, a vitamin D like substance, which is vital to the
    integrity of the yeast cell membranes. This drug is difficult for
    Candidiasis patients to absorb because proper stomach acid is required
    to absorb it. Most patients are deficient in stomach acid. Yeast
    infections sometimes produce symptoms that make people believe they
    have excess acid. Recent evidence shows this drug may cause serious
    liver damage or even fatal reactions. The PDR states that these drugs
    can only be taken for a short period of time due to toxicity. I do not
    believe they can be taken long enough to kill the Candida.


    Candida like a chameleon is able to transform itself from a fungus
    into yeast. Candida is highly resistive and may be able to mutate
    against an antifungal herb or medicine if the substance is taken for
    21 days or more, so “rotation,” or switching the antifungal used in an
    orderly fashion, is essential. Once we have tested the person to
    discover the type of Candida they have, we then select 4 substances
    that are especially effective on that type of Candida. The first one
    is taken for a 4-day period and then stopped. We then move to the next
    substance for another 4 days. This is repeated over and over again.
    This rotation is done so that the Candida does not develop a
    resistance to the substance. (This concept is covered in my earlier
    articles on Candida.)


    The trick is that each remedy has a different chemical action in
    destroying the yeast. So rotating them exposes the yeast to different
    forms of attack. It also ensures that resistance to the remedy is
    avoided because use is not continuous.

    One of the most common stories that I hear from new patients is "the
    doctor gave me an antifungal that he said was really good. I took for
    3 or 4 weeks and was getting better. A few months later my symptoms
    were mostly gone and I thought I was cured! I didn't change anything
    and then all my symptoms camE back again!
    What happened?” Simple, Candida developed a resistance to the
    antifungal, stopped working and grew back!


    Certain vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and herbs can spread Candida.
    Some of these include the B- complex, vitamin D, CoQ-10, Calcium,
    Copper, and Iron. Other nutrients protect the Candida from the very
    medicines used to kill it. I recently wrote an entire article on how
    CoQ10 can spread Candida! I personally take CoQ10, but I don't have
    Candida! I would not recommend taking Coq10 until your Candida is
    Most anti-fungals work by creating “oxidative stress” against the
    membrane or outer skin of the Candida. This works by “burning” or
    “digesting” the outer layer of the Candida. Antioxidant vitamins in
    high doses will protect the Candida from treatment and must be
    Many years ago, I studied how many of the prescription drugs worked to
    kill Candida. I was surprised to learn that many of the drugs work by
    blocking the absorption of nutrients like Vitamin D or Iron into the
    Candida cell, so that Candida will not get that nutrient to nourish
    The most common mistake in trying to regain energy in one who has
    Candidiasis is the use of many vitamins and minerals or other exotic
    supplements intended to boost energy while the Candida still exists in
    the body.
    Giving a toxic body dozens of nutrients is asking for trouble. One can
    become severely ill if they take many nutrients when they are
    chronically toxic. The nutrients will cause a mad, uncontrolled
    release of toxins, which the body will not be prepared to release. The
    result will be feeling terrible. Candida sufferers usually get bad
    reactions to vitamin supplements.


    Having elevated levels of Estrogen and Cortisol, or having lower
    levels of Testosterone, Dhea, or Progesterone can make a man or woman
    more prone to Candida and cause continual relapse. Women who notice
    that their Candida symptoms worsen during the PMS phase of menses, or
    men who notice that they have a drop in energy or libido since
    developing Candida- like symptoms, have hormonal problems linked to
    Candida. Stress will easily cause Candida by elevating the stress
    hormone, Cortisol, which will depress the immune system and like
    Estrogen, raise the amount of sugars found in the mucus surrounding
    the Candida. Fortunately, I have learned from years of experience that
    the standard approach to testing and treating hormone problems often
    makes Candida worse! In the Biamonte Method, we use a special way of
    testing for hormones that reflects how the hormone is affecting the
    Candida. Standard blood tests for hormones are of little use. There is
    also a special way for treating the hormones so it does not spread the
    Candida. Typical hormone treatments can make Candida worse!


    Toxic metals such as Mercury, Copper, Iron, Aluminum, Bismuth, and
    Arsenic show up consistently in the Candida patient. These metals can
    either disable the exact part of the immune system that seeks to
    control Candida or they destroy the gut flora that controls Candida.
    Mercury and Copper are often found in one’s dental fillings and in tap
    water. As they pass through the intestinal tract, they can stimulate
    the growth of more Candida.

    The body does not form Candida as a protective mechanism against
    Mercury. This is false data! Mercury suppresses intestinal antibodies
    and immune response which allow Candida to then grow.

    Many doctors make the mistake of aggressively chelating or trying to
    remove metals from the Candida patient early in the treatment,
    thinking that handling the cause will clear it faster. However, this
    only serves to spread the Candida. As the huge out- pouring of metals
    move down the intestinal tract, it contacts and spreads the yeast!

    Metal removal must be done after the yeast is gone. In the Biamonte
    Method, we use a substance which binds the metals in the intestinal
    tract during the early stages of Candida elimination to keep the
    metals away from the Candida until we can address the metals safely.


    In the natural health field many substances have been promoted as
    being able to reduce yeast Infection. I have found that they do create
    a reduction in symptoms, but cannot destroy a yeast overgrowth in a
    systemic case.

    Both undecenoic acid and caprylic acid are poorly absorbed into the
    blood stream making them ineffective in systemic cases. They only
    eliminate OR destroy it in the intestinal tract and will leave behind
    the colonies that have traveled to other parts of the body.

    Acidophilus is helpful with some Candida symptoms while it is being
    used regularly. It is supposed to replace Candida in the intestines.
    But it cannot re-grow and replace Candida until enough Candida has
    been cleaned out and the intestines are cleaner!

    Many herbs, citrus extracts and other substances have been found to
    create effective reduction, but rarely a complete one. This is because
    yeast is very adaptive. Yeast sensitivity tests (where an individual
    yeast is tested to see which remedies will effectively kill it), can
    be done as part of a comprehensive stool test if needed. In the past,
    I have used these to prove that the yeast can become resistant to any
    natural or medical therapy after a month or so of continuous use. I
    have collected a protocol of over 35 different natural, nontoxic,
    substances which are extremely effective in handling systemic candida.
    However, even at that, a special approach is needed to ensure


    Many practitioners you may visit for Candida treatment will tell you
    one of four things:

    (1). "We must build your immune system" or (2.) "We must detoxify
    you", or (3.) "We must kill your candida", or (4.) ‘"We must balance
    your metabolism". Some will tell you they must do all four immediately
    and put you on sixty products a day. The proper way to handle Candida,
    EBV, HIV, or any such condition is in four steps. They must be done in
    an exact order and to full completion. If not, the patient is likely
    to relapse. How can you rebuild the immune system if the person has a
    raging infection? If your house were on fire you wouldn’t begin to
    repair your walls and structures until you put out the fire, right?

    1. First eliminate "Parasites." They can cause Candida by killing
    the friendly bacteria just like antibiotics do. Candida is now
    attacked using natural herbs that can kill it throughout the body.
    These herbs can also kill it in the intestines at the same time. That
    gives us a head start! These herbs are not taken all together every
    day because the Candida will get use to them. So they must be taken
    alone, one at a time. We usually use 4 different ones taken each one
    alone for 4 days.
    2. Candida must be cleaned out from the intestines. At this point
    we use a different type of natural Candida killer that can concentrate
    all its power on intestinal elimination. These substances can reach
    yeast that is hiding in the folds of the intestines. While we do this,
    we also clean out the whole digestive tract so the killers can contact
    and reach any Candida that might be buried under old mucus or hardened
    feces. After this is complete friendly acidophilus and bifidus
    bacteria are given. This prevents the Candida from growing right back.
    Any damage done to the intestines can be repaired at this time.
    Special vitamin formulations are used that will reduce inflammation
    and reform healthy tissue.
    3. Candida causes vitamin deficiencies by preventing their
    absorption. Now we can take vitamins without getting bad reactions and
    no results. When Candida is eliminated we can begin to take nutrients
    and ABSORB THEM AGAIN! Now we can feel results from them!
    4. Finally, the immune system can be strengthened without having
    to battle a continuous infection! The immune system rarely recovers
    while Candida is still there.
    I can assure you that if each phase is done, in order to full
    completion, the chances are unlikely that the patient will relapse and
    unlikely that he or she will still have the underlying weakness which
    led to going on the antibiotic that may have induced the yeast
    infection to begin with.

    My experience is that practitioners concentrate on only one of these
    four phases and neglect the other three. Look at it again. You reduce
    the infection first, so you will not produce further toxins so that
    your colon or detoxifying regime will be effective. You then normalize
    endocrine function. Any toxins store in the thyroid directly, a good
    example is mercury. Opening up channels of elimination as in phase two
    allow for further cellular detox and endocrine function to resume.
    Since the adrenal glands also have a powerful immune stimulation,
    (sympathetic innervated immune response), phase three opens up to
    phase four reestablishing correct immune response. So there you have
    it. This is the solution and correct path to handling this modern
    scourge. I wish you well.

    Here is the pricing for our consultations with Michael Biamonte CCN.

    Brief Consultation

    A brief consultation is generally less then 10 minutes and is
    scheduled in order to address, questions, concerns or new difficulties
    that develop between regularly scheduled monthly consultations.

    Basic Consultation

    The Basic consultation is generally more then 10 minutes or is used to
    go over major changes to the program, or to interpret the results of
    the Basic Home Test and adjust Phase 0-4 programs.

    Basic Test

    The test consultation covers a major test other then the home kit and
    is used to create or adjust a phase 0-4 program. This can be used as a
    regular monthly consultation.


    The extended consultation is generally more then 10 minutes and used
    to interpret 2 or more tests. This can take the place of a basic
    monthly consultation. These consultations generally require additional
    research or consultation with consultants at the lab performing the
    test or with "Nutritional Interpretations", to take into account
    current program and health history.


    The Review consultation is used to review a major lab test between
    regular monthly consultations. These often require the same
    preparation as extended consultations.

    Brief Review

    this consultation requires similar but less preparation then the
    Review consultation and tends to be less the 10 minutes.

    Report of Findings

    This is the second consultation done after the initial test results
    are received. The Consultation is generally 15-30 minutes. The initial
    program is explained and begun.


    At this consultation a review of past health and nutritional history
    is discussed. The necessary testing is explained and the proposed
    program is outlined. An initial program may be begun.
