The Candida Epidemic
Sign Up for Dr Whiting FREE E-Journal
There is probably more misinformation about yeast infections and Candida than almost any other health topic. This site is designed to dispel these myths and to provide you with the latest research and programs for actually eliminating systemic candidiasis from the body.
Systemic candida overgrowth has become a virtual epidemic, affecting millions of people, primarily but certainly not exclusively, women. The real danger in this problem lies in the fact that it almost always goes undiagnosed in most people. Further, there is no accurate medical test for systemic candida, once the organism has left the intestinal tract and entered the blood stream.
The best way to determine if a systemic yeast problem is present is by evaluating the many potential symptoms that this problem can create. If you are uncertain whether you may have a systemic yeast problem, the first place you should start is by taking our Candida Evaluation Test. The link is on this home page. Once you have taken the test and scored yourself, you may wish to contact us at The Institute at 1-888-454-8464 to discuss your results.
After working with tens of thousands of people during the past 30 years, we can assure you that systemic candida can be totally eliminated and not just ‘managed’ as with diets, herbs and probiotics. While all these may help temporarily, symptoms return as soon as they are stopped.
The Institute of Nutritional Science has developed a formulation, which has been used for over 20+ years in successfully eliminating systemic candida and yeast without the use of dangerous drugs and ineffective diets. This site will provide you with downloads, informational articles and videos, explaining what candida is, how systemic candida develops, and how to eliminate it once and for all. Once we have successfully eliminated your candida problems, we have a protocol for helping you to stay healthy and avoid such problems in the future. After reviewing this information, you can use the link below to contact the company where you may obtain our unique formulation for the elimination of systemic yeast in the body.

The Candida and Yeast Epidemic
There is more misinformation about yeast infections and candida albicans that almost any health topic. Yeast diets or candida diets, along with special herbal formulas for combating yeast and candida infections abound. Yet after 30 years in the nutrition field, we have found very few of these to be effective. Research shows that women, following yeast diets and candida diets, obtain some relief from they symptoms, yet as soon as they go off the restricted diet, their yeast infection and candida symptoms return almost immediately. The only substance ever shown to actually destroy the candida and yeast organism on contact is oxygen. Oral oxygen has proven to be very effective in eliminating yeast infections and candida. Candida diets do not eliminate candida or yeast. Candida diets help reduce the symptoms of candida or yeast, but will not cure the problem. When oral oxygen is used candida diets become unnecessary. Buffered oral oxygen is the only safe way to raise the oxygen levels, but you must take the right formula in order for it to be safe and effective. The Institute of Nutritional Science offers a formulation, which has been used for over 20 years in eliminating systemic candida and yeast without the use of dangerous drugs and ineffective diets. Preventing candida overgrowth from re-occurring, once you are enjoying a healthier state of being involves re-implanting the healthy bacteria in the intestinal tract. If you must take an antibiotic for any reason, it is essential that you replace the health bacteria by taking high potency acidophilus for about 10 days after the antibiotic program. Also, if you are female and taking birth control medications, regular use of acidophilus is recommended. The most common symptom of yeast overgrowth in males is what is called ‘jock itch’, or some other type of fungal skin condition. Once you have your candida under control it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise, a diet of mostly whole foods and to take a Full Spectrum multi-vitamin/mineral supplement on a daily basis.
A Closer Look At Human Yeast
As we have seen, there is probably more misinformation about candida and human yeast problems than almost anything in health. In order to clear up some of these misconceptions, let’s take a closer look at the process. Candida Albicans is an organism that is found in the intestinal tract of all humans. Science is not clear as it its purpose but we do no that it is ‘normal’. As long as the candida stays confined within the intestinal region, it poses virtually no health concern. It is when, for a variety of reasons, that the candida overgrows, that we begin to have health challenges in other areas. The most common candida problem may be found in women in the form of a yeast infection. This occurs in the vaginal area and a vaginal yeast infection can be very uncomfortable. The candida albicans organism over multiplies in the vaginal area, leading to irritation, burning and discharge. A vaginal yeast infection can oftentimes take longer to clear up that the problem that may have contributed to the yeast overgrowth. Women are most likely to develop a vaginal yeast infection as a result of antibiotic use. Antibiotics destroy the healthy bacteria used to control the yeast overgrowth. In the absence of this ‘friendly bacteria’, the candida yeast begins to rapidly multiply, spilling into the vaginal area. This localized candida infection can still be treated and eliminated by the use of certain prescription drugs and local creams. If the candida should continue to spread and it finds its way into the bloodstream, a condition called systemic candida can develop. This is where you have yeast overgrowth in various places in the body. Common sites include the liver, stomach, lungs, bronchial region, sinuses and the brain. In addition to the use and abuse of antibiotics the use of steroid drugs can also lead to explosive candida overgrowth due to the fact that they destroy the healthy bacteria that keeps candida overgrowth in check. Steroid drugs are not as commonly used so they account for less incidence of systemic candida but those using steroid drugs often must due so for long periods of time, making the problem much more severe. If you have health conditions involving the intestinal tract such as IBS, (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), colitis or diverticulitis, these can cause sufficient irritation to produce bleeding. Once this occurs, the candida organism can easily make its way into the bloodstream and systemic candida is just around the corner. IBS and colitis are some of the many colon or intestinal factors that can create a perfect environment for the candida to enter the bloodstream. If colitis or IBS is present, all efforts to control and heal these problems should also be part of the overall program.
Myths About Candida
We have already discussed the so-called ‘candida or yeast diets’. Following such diets as the Yeast Connection Diet or others, can provide relief from symptoms of candida overgrowth, but will do virtually nothing to actually eliminate the yeast in the body. The concept that high yeast, high starch, high sugar diet ‘feeds’ candida is not exactly correct. In truth, we don’t ‘eat’ candida and by eliminating other foods, we cannot destroy it. Reducing those foods allows the body to better handle the candida problem and to some small extent helps to prevent accelerated candida overgrowth, but in order to eliminate the problem we need to look elsewhere. Another myth surrounding candida or systemic candida is the fact that it can be caused by the presence of toxins such as heavy metals. There is a lot of information about heavy metals, especially mercury from tooth fillings, causing candida. This of course is biologically impossible. Heavy metals of all kinds can, over time, depress the immune function of the body. This can make candida indirectly, worse along with a host of other immune-related problems. Eliminating heavy metals from the body is a good idea, but in and of itself will not eliminate the candida or human yeast problem. While detoxification of the body will help to eliminate mercury and other heavy metals, the link between mercury and candida is still not valid. In speaking of detoxification, another myth about candida is that it can be eliminated with various detox programs. While detoxification is important and effective in eliminating the waste or by products of candida metabolism, detoxification alone will not destroy the candida organism. Herbal extracts, found in health food stores and often recommended by nutritionists, can be somewhat helpful, especially if the candida overgrowth is still confined to the intestinal tract. Once it becomes systemic however, these products provide very little relief to the sufferer. It is sad that such myths are so extensive in the literature and on the Internet because they can do little to eliminate the actual cause of candida, systemic candida and extensive candida overgrowth.
The Natural Candida Program That Works!
If all these common methods are ineffective in eliminating systemic candida, what can be done? After over 20 years of working with candida sufferers, we have found a program that actually destroys and eliminates excess candida and human yeast within the body. This natural candida program is safe, effective and very easy to do. Unlike other candida home treatments our natural candida program is not invasive and is very pleasant to take. The all-natural candida program takes between 6 and 7 weeks to complete and totally eliminates systemic candida in the majority of those using the program. We will tell you more about our program in a bit, but first let’s look at some of the many symptoms that can develop as a result of systemic candida and yeast overgrowth.
The longer the candida organism lives systemically in the body, the greater number of symptoms can develop. The Classic symptoms of yeast overgrowth include, digestive disturbances, diarrhea and/or constipation or altering between the two, tingling of the hands and feet, vaginal discharge, repeated vaginal yeast infections, headaches, a feeling of being disconnected with the environment, a spacey out of touch feeling, fatigue, excessive sleeping or insomnia alternating, adult onset allergies, sensitivity to smells, and many other fleeting health concerns. Since the symptoms can vary from person to person, it is important to understand that there can be potentially hundreds of symptoms linked to yeast overgrowth.
Eliminating Systemic Candida
Our program for eliminating systemic candida is very effective. After 20+ Years and thousands and thousands of individuals, we know what works and what doesn’t. In short, the only thing we have ever found to actually eliminate this problem and not just cover it up is the use of oral oxygen supplements, taken over a 6 to7 week period. Since the candida organism is anaerobic, raising the blood oxygen level of the body effectively destroys this organism and allows the body to flush is safely from the system. This candida cleanse actually is effective for many low-grade organisms besides systemic candida, including fungus, molds and even some parasites. We have developed a safe, effective and pleasant tasting liquid oxygen supplement, which has the ability to raise blood oxygen levels. This formula, called Oxy Aloe, is available from Phoenix Nutritionals. You can reach them by calling 1-800-440-2390. We recommend that you obtain the Oxy Flush Kit, which will provide everything you will need to complete one full Oxy Flush Program of 6 to7 weeks. You will begin by taking this oral oxygen supplement three times per day in increasing amounts over the full 6-week period. After this you will then take a powerful acidophilus product for 10 days to re-implant the healthy bacteria. This formula is automatically included in the Oxy Flush Kit.
What About Die Off?
Many people are concerned about what is called die off. This occurs when you kill off the candida faster than your body can effectively eliminate it. This is not in any way dangerous, but it can, in some people, produce unpleasant side effects including headache, nausea, diarrhea, and fatigue. If these become severe, which is rare, we can simply slow down the program by having you take less of the Oxy formula in the first few weeks. This will eliminate any uncomfortable issues.
Systemic Candida Conclusion
Understand that you probably didn’t develop a systemic yeast problem overnight and if it has become systemic, common drugs like Diflucan, Nystatin and even the probiotic Threelac with have little or no effect on the systemic portion of your condition. Diflucan and Nystatin work on yeast overgrowth in the intestinal area and to a lesser extent, on localized vaginal problems, but when the yeast becomes systemic drugs like Diflucan and Nystatin are worthless. After 20+ years helping those suffering from systemic yeast and candida, I can assure you that with time, we can eliminate even the most extreme cases.
