Most people don’t even know they have Candida. Surprisingly, it infects more than 30% of the world population.
Candida is sneaky. It causes symptoms that don’t seem related… Sinus infections, blurred vision, moodiness, sugar cravings, and fatigue, just to name a few.
It’s an overgrowth of fungus in your gut. But it affects your whole body. High stress, sugar, processed foods, and antibiotics are mostly to blame.
If you’re treating symptoms individually without knowing what’s really causing them, you’re not doing much to destroy the harmful overgrowth itself.
Doctors usually prescribe fluconazole. There are just a couple of problems with that. For one, a single round is rarely effective. Even worse, it causes nasty side effects like vomiting, diarrhea, and dizziness.
Your best bet is to treat the condition naturally. How? With a Candida-destroying diet. Eating foods that attack fungus is a healthier way to heal and prevent this condition.
You can starve out the fungus by eating a diet low in sugar, high in protein and vegetables. But there are also certain foods that actively fight fungus.
Coconut oil, in particular, is one of the best fats you can add to your diet. Plus it actually kills Candida…
In fact, this oil is just as effective as fluconazole for treating Candida. It’s antifungal and contains fatty acids like lauric acid. These acids attack the cell wall of the fungus. This causes the cell wall to disintegrate.
That’s pretty powerful for something that sits on your kitchen counter! And in countries where they eat the most coconut oil—Thailand and the Philippines—it’s no coincidence that the Candida rates are much lower.
Now, if you’ve read any of our Health Watch alerts on the amazing benefits of coconut oil, you know to replace some of your cooking oils with coconut oil. It keeps for a long time without having to be refrigerated. You can heat it to high temperatures without losing the beneficial properties.
Consuming coconut oil can prevent and end Candida. You’ll still need to practice other healthy habits, like reducing your sugar intake, decreasing stress, and eating a balanced diet. So next time you drink your smoothie, use a little coconut oil to keep Candida under control.
