The 45 Day Yeast Cleanse Protocol

Protocol Includes:

  1. Candida Complete (90 caps, 2 caps daily for 45 days) Ingredients:
    • Biotin—Important nutrient for the GI tract and immune system. Replenishing this vitamin can help establish balance of the normal intestinal flora and prevent yeast from becoming a more invasive issue.
    • Oregano—Supports antioxidant function and microbial balance. Contains important phytonutrients such as rosmarinic acid and quercetin which can help with inflammation in the gut. Naturally occurring agents for microbial balance such as carvacrol and thymol are found in oregano that have been shown to promote a healthy microbiome.
    • Pau D’Arco—Herb that promotes healthy microflora in the intestines. Studies show it can be effective with musculoskeletal inflammation as well.
    • Sodium Caprylate—Stabilized form of caprylic acid, which is a fatty acid found in coconuts. Studies show this compound can be destructive to the cell integrity of Candida albicans by inhibiting growth and promoting low of organization within the cell. Caprylic acid can also support microbial balance without adversely affecting the beneficial bacteria in the gut.
    • Berberine—Plant root extract that has been found in studies to be a strong promoter of microbial balance as well as effectively inhibit adherence of Candida albicans to epithelial cells. Specifically, studies have shown that it inhibits SAP (secreted aspartyl proteinases) which is needed for yeast to convert to a more aggressive form.
    • Rosemary—Essential oil that has shown to have a broad spectrum effect on microbial balance. It has strong antioxidant and microbial balancing effects on the body and can help decrease oxidative stress.
    • Cinnamon Bark Extract—Studies looking at the effects of cinnamon bark extract on MRSA and Candida species have shown its ability to promote and maintain microbial balance in the setting of overgrowth of these organisms. Cinnamon essential oils can cause destruction to the microbes by inducing changes in the cell when exposed to the oil.
  2. Candicidin (60 caps, 2 caps daily for 30 days) Ingredients:
    • Origanox—extract from the herb oregano. This is a water soluble formulation of oregano oil. Supports antioxidants and microbial balance. Contains phytonutrients such as rosmarinic acid and quercetin. This form has an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) of 5,800 units per gram. This scale measures the capacity of the antioxidants to fight free radicals against oxidative stress.
    • Sodium Caprylate—Stabilized form of caprylic acid, which is a fatty acid found in coconuts. Studies show this compound can be destructive to the cell integrity of Candida albicans by inhibiting growth and promoting low of organization within the cell. Caprylic acid can also support microbial balance without adversely affecting the beneficial bacteria in the gut.
    • Ginger—Supports GI, immune, and antioxidant functioning and activity.
    • Turmeric Extract—This herb has been in use for centuries to support normal digestion and muscle function. There are many studies that support the use of turmeric/curcumin for its protective benefits on the body. Its most well known and documented affect is on inflammation and cytokine balance (cytokines are immune cells that cause inflammation).
    • Olive Leaf Extract—From the plant Olea europaea. Studies have shown that the breakdown of this extract into oleuropein and rutin help support maintenance of a healthy bacterial flora in the GI tract.
  3. Candilysis (30 caps, 2 caps daily for 15 days) ***contains tree nuts*** Ingredients:
    • Grapefruit Seed Extract—This extract has a potent effect on yeast-like fungi such as Candida albicans. Research has shown that in patients with intestinal dysbiosis, grapefruit seed extract can significantly inhibit growth of yeast as well as gram positive and gram negative bacteria.
    • Black Walnut Hull— The hulls of the black walnut have been used for centuries so manage intestinal symptoms. The therapeutic ingredient in black walnut is called tannins. These tannins have the ability to interfere with the structural stability of many different microbes, including parasites and fungi.
    • Slippery Elm Bark— Slippery elm bark is a traditional demulcent that has been used for centuries. Slippery elm bark is rich in mucilage which helps maintain normal inflammatory balance.
    • Goldenseal Root—Also called Hydrastis canadensis, this herb has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and immune boost boosting effects. Its activity against microbes come from a high concentration of berberine in the root. Berberine has been shown in studies to have a significant impact on candida overgrowth as well as a reduction in biofilm activity.
    • Bearberry Leaf—Also known as “Uva-Ursi” and typically used for calming down inflammation from bladder infections. This botanical also has inhibitory properties that can reduce the activity of pathogenic microbes in the gut.
  4. Gut Bugs Intensive Care for 15 days
    This is a maximum-strength probiotic used to repopulate the intestinal bacteria population in the gut in times of acute GI issues. By increasing the amount of beneficial bacteria, high dose probiotics can influence gut health and immunity in ways lower dose probiotics cannot. Probiotics at this dose has been shown to activate 1,700 genes involved in immune and inflammatory signaling. This level of probiotics can provide support for a healthy, balanced immune response to infection and regulation in the body. Delivering 225 billion active probiotic cultures per packet, Gut Bugs Intensive creates a rapid response to reset the immune system and maintain normal inflammatory balance. Each packet provides six proven strains chosen for their ability to survive the harsh GI environment.
  5. Gut Bugs 100 for 30 days
    This is a high-dose probiotic that contains 100 billion active cultures that are instrumental in reducing gastrointestinal and immune distress. This is the next level down from the initial 225 billion, but still going beyond the threshold of traditional probiotic support. high-dose probiotics influence GI health and immunity in ways lower-dose probiotics cannot. Continues to activate genes involved in immune and inflammatory signaling. Maintaining probiotics at this level can improve immune function, maintain a healthy gut-immune barrier, and maintain normal inflammatory balance. Each capsule provides six proven probiotic strains chosen for their ability to survive the harsh GI environment.
  6. Gut Bugs Sacc B for 30 days
    Saccharomyces boulardii is a protective probiotic yeast. This is a stomach acid-resistant probiotic, proven to survive high temperatures and transit into the intestines. S. boulardii actively promotes healthy gastrointestinal flora, strengthens intestinal barrier function, and enhances immune function. This formulation of Saccharomyces boulardii is freeze-dried, lactose-free, and strain-verified through genetic typing to ensure maximum efficacy.
  7. Gut Gamma Globulin 1 scoop twice daily for 15 days
    This product contains serum-derived bovine immunoglobulins that provides a non-dairy form of intestinal support that can be compared to colostrum. These immunoglobulins help maintain a healthy intestinal immune system by binding a broad range of microbes and toxins within the gut lumen. This binding mechanism helps the body eliminate the unwanted microbes safely and efficiently through the stool. See the list below for the specific binding capabilities:
    Lipopolysaccharide (LPS)—Bacterial cell wall component
    C. difficile Toxin A and B—C. diff virulence factors Peptidoglycan—Bacterial cell wall component Flagellin—Antigenic bacterial component Zymosan—Fungal cell wall component
    c-di-AMP—Bacterial messenger molecule CpG—Bacterial DNA motif Pam3CSK4—Bacterial lipoprotein MDP—Bacterial cell wall component
  8. Gastro Guard scoop daily for 30 days
    This product is designed to promote the health and barrier function of the gastrointestinal (GI) lining. Its active ingredients focuses on nutrients that support the gut mucosal epithelium. The purpose of the epithelium is to allow the digestion and absorption of dietary nutrients while keeping unwanted toxins, microbes and food particles from passing directly into the body. GlutaShield includes a high-dose of L-glutamine (4 g), which serves as nutrition for the gut lining and helps to repair any damages from yeast overgrowth or environmental toxins. It also includes deglycyrrhized licorice root extract (DGL) and 75 mg of aloe vera extract, both of which protect and promote the health of the gut mucosa. N-acetyl glucosamine and zinc work together to boost GI integrity.
