Enemas are useful but they have their limits against candida if you are using nutritional supplements from the other end as well.
Also, from my own experience with the autistic group that I am helping at the moment who all have serious candida and parasite issues and who take lots of supplements (Kerri Rivera's MMS, Hulda Clark PP, MMS enemas, diet), many of them suddenly hit a brick wall and make no further progress using these protocols. The explanation for this problem is a fairly long one, so bear with me.
In order to understand the above problems, first it should be realized that the adult human intestines is about 30 ft long with an efficient absorption area the size of a tennis court.
This means that the intestines is quite long with a huge and efficient absorbition surface area that is mainly due to the internal convolutions or folds, villi and microvilli of the inner intestinal surface. This ability to efficiently absorb nutrients and particularly the length and area of the intestines can also work against the candida sufferer whenever they have a serious and extensive candida issues with added bacteria and parasite problems in the gut.
So here is my explanation.
Whenever you take any nutrient orally, for instance, borax water â€“ then how much of it is absorbed directly into the blood and how much acts in the intestines to kill pathogens? It is well known that borax is absorbed quickly and used up in the body. This applies to all other nutrients as well.
Given the above, then it is probably correct to assume that Borax will only ever act and have benefit on the first third of the upper intestines to kill pathogens but will not act throughout the whole of the intestines to kill candida, parasites and other pathogens. This will also apply to all other candida kill or parasite kill nutrients that are also supplemented. My belief is that these nutrients will either be absorbed into the blood, exhausted or neutralized after travelling only the first upper third of the upper intestines(the first 10 feet of the intestines).
But what about enemas? Unfortunately, exactly the same argument applies here as above. These enemas will only ever successfully act and be effective at killing pathogens and parasites in the lower third of the intestines(the last 10 feet of the intestines).
So what's left? It becomes glaringly apparent to me that the middle portion of the intestines(the middle 10 feet) from a person with candida is the area that is both untouched and unreachable by both oral nutrients and by enemas. So this middle region of the intestines appears to be the hidden powerhouse for pathogens, candida and parasites, allowing these pathogens to freely breed and continue to pump their waste toxin poisons unabated into the body.
In other words -- the middle region of the intestines acts as an untouched and unreachable safe-haven for all parasites, fungus and pathogens.
The above description seems to also adequately explain why a person with serious candida issues hits a brick wall and can make no further progress no matter what they try because that middle region of the intestines is left untreated and untouched by any protocol.
A possible solution to the above problems is to use a nutrient protocol that:
* Only acts throughout the whole intestines against candida, parasites and pathogens
* Is not absorbed so quickly into the blood.
There are only a few nutrient protocols that manage to fulfill the above criteria and these are:
This is why I also strongly favour the use of laxatives against candida. Both turpentine and castor oil also have laxative action. Simultaneously, turpentine and CO also kill candida and other pathogens and remove biofilms as well while, at the same time, castor oil will help to slow absorption and also help to spread the turpentine throughout the intestines quickly and evenly because of its laxative effects. This protocol therefore successfully acts to get rid of pathogens throughout the WHOLE length of the intestines -- including the middle region of the gut. If you don't treat and eliminate the pathogens from the middle portion of the intestines then this can be a major reason why your candida never goes away or just keeps coming back.
Here's a doc that I wrote recently that, for clarity, describes in detail just the candida-kill and pathogen-kill protocols that I advise. This doesn't show the full candida protocol but just shows and explains in detail how to take Lugol's Iodine, Borax, Alkalizing and the Turpentine/CO protocols. You should take all these protocols if you have serious candida problems.
Hopefully this will help people to more understand these protocols a little better. See doc below:
Recommended Candida/Pathogen Kill Protocols.
These protocols will kill candida and other involved pathogens both in the intestines and in the blood, tissues and organs. It will also remove biofilms in the intestines. Also kills parasites, detoxes heavy metals and helps to boost the immune system. And if you follow a simple no carbs, no wheat, no milk, no sugar, no processed food diet, which means breaking some well-loved bad lifestyle habits, you might stand a chance of actually curing your own candida problems.
And its a reasonably cheap protocol that works.
You lack stomach acid. You really need to take other nutrients as well as Betaine HCL to assure proper stomach acid. These are:
* Liquid Kelp Extract....The stomach needs iodine for proper digestion so taking a liquid kelp extract would definitely help. Take it every day at the advised dosage.
* Chlorides...In the form of magnesium chloride will aid digestion. 250 mgs twice day with meals.
* 1/4 tspn sea salt per day. More chlorides and minerals.
* B50 or B100 complex -- with Vitamin B12. Taken with food once a day.
* Zinc gluconate -- 25 mgs per day. Also essential for digestion.
Main stage digestion in the upper intestines(duodenum) needs an alkaline to neutral pH environment for the pancreatic enzymes to work. If the pancreatic juices contain low bicarbonates then the digestion medium will be too acid(from the stomach acid) and digestion will not work. So best to also take pancreatin enzymes(with papain and bromelain) as well at every meal.
And one hour after every meal you should also take 1/4 to 1/2 tspn sodium bicarbonate (baking soda -- Arm & Hammer is fine to use) in water. This ensures that main stage digestion in the duodenum will work properly at the proper alkaline to neutral pH.
And just in case you're worried about taking baking soda and stomach acid -- stomach digestion stops half an hour after you finish eating your meal and the excess stomach acid is normally completely re-absorbed into the parietal cells of the stomach for the next meal.
I just know that alot of people are still going to be confused or object about taking sodium bicarbonate an hour after a meal. They will all complaining about the baking soda interferring with the stomach acid. So here's my quick and simple expalnation:
If you're still confused after reading the above link then please look up Human Digestion in Wikipedia for some understanding and clarity on how digestion really works.
I used VCO as part of my own candida cure. It helped to cure my own serious constipation issues when used together with alkalizing. VCO does have some beneficial activity in the intestines only. But it will never get rid of serious systemic or disseminated candida issues on its own. Not enough.
Here's what VCO does. It can kill enveloped bacteria, viruses and candida.
Here's what VCO cannot do. It cannot cannot destroy non-enveloped pathogens and cannot destroy candida biofilms where candida can safely hide out of reach of all anti-fungals and the immune system. VCO is also rapidly removed from the body and converted by the liver after absorbtion so there's only a small amount(not enough) that stays active in the blood -- so its not very good at getting rid of the fungal form of candida which is the parasite form that inhabts the blood tissues and organs.
Remember that candida is dimorphic -- which means that it has two different and distinct living forms. The yeast form is a saprophyte that spreads by budding and feeds on dead organic matter. The fungal form of candida is a true parasite that feeds off the host and spreads by spores. The yeast form inhabits locally -- skin, nose, intestines, uterus etc. The fungal form is in the blood, tissues and organs -- it inhabits everywhere in the body in other words.It's like two different pathogens have invaded your body at the same time.
Alot of people still believe that candida just infects the intestines. That's a really dumb belief to hold. Little wonder then, from all I've said above, that they can never get rid of their candida or it just keeps coming back. And then they wonder what they're doing wrong in their protocols.
You will have to get rid of all your systemic candida -- both the yeast form AND the fungal form -- if you want to win against candida. That means adopting a multi-protocol approach....And then,after that, you will have to get rid of all the other pathogens in your body -- all the bacteria, viruses or perhaps parasites that have joined the candida party as well because of your incredibly weak immune system. So how do you get rid of all these different pathogen species that are also involved?
Just to also say and make the point that, for all the above reasons, you will never, in a month of Sundays, cure serious systemic candida problems that you may have had for years or even decades with a "take two pills in the morning and two pills in the evening" kind of approach. That's why you have to use a much more highly focused multi-protocol approach.
