Anti-Candida Program Details
NMF is endorsing and promoting an anti-Candida therapeutic trial program for individuals that are dealing with health issues that have yet to be remedied through other treatments. It has been found that the possibility of an undetected Candida fungus overgrowth might be the culprit affecting patients that have yet to find a remedy to various ailments. While Candida isn't necessarily the cause of specific health issues, it can be the source of the inability for the body to heal. If you have ever experienced an overgrowth situation, we know that most will attest to the fact that it can be painful and even debilitating.
Candida Albicans is a fungus that lives in our intestines. This fungus is capable of producing 180 chemical toxins that can literally shut down the thyroid, push hormones off kilter, cause weight fluctuations along with alcohol and sugar cravings, muscle and joint pain, loss of libido and memory, depression and a host of other maladies. Some specific toxins produced by Candida include acetaldehyde, ammonia and uric acid. These harmful substances (along with a long list of other toxins) can enter your bloodstream and cause a host of diverse symptoms.
Chronic inflammation symptoms have been found to be remarkably similar to many Candida symptoms. Those symptoms include joint pain, fatigue, allergies and digestive problems. Research has found that there is a powerful link between chronic inflammation and Candida. An inflammatory response is your body’s way of dealing with Candida and its byproducts. This inflammation contributes to many of the symptoms regularly associated with Candida. An over population of Candida delays the body's ability to heal and the inability to heal, promotes inflammation. The vicious cycle is set in motion with low-level inflammation promoting increased fungal colonization and increased fungal colonization promoting more inflammation.
To this end, NMF has put together a program and is offering tools that are needed in order to determine if an overgrowth of Candida could possibly be related to some or all of your health issues. The first thing you will want to do is complete the questionnaire. Completing the questionnaire will help determine the severity of the yeast overgrowth and how best to move forward for treatment.
If you along with the various health care providers that you have seen over the course of several months to several years have yet to alleviate your health issues, we strongly recommend a therapeutic trial of an anti-Candida protocol. To date, it seems that this is the best way to determine if Candida could be the cause of your issues. The doctor can determine which anti-fungals would be most beneficial to you. Each person is different and these recommendations will be determined by the doctor on a case by case basis.
We do offer fungus testing however it is expensive and not always reliable. The biggest issue is that most individuals will test positive due to the fact that we all have fungus in our intestinal track. What is difficult to determine is the amount of fungus present. An overgrowth is difficult to establish hence the reason for the questionnaire. If the doctor thinks it is vitally necessary, he will suggest that you get the testing done. In most cases, however, this testing is at the discretion of the patient.
For those ready to begin a therapeutic trial treatment, the protocol follows based on questionnaire scores, again, with the final prescriptions and treatment being determined by the doctor. Consult your coach should you have questions or to obtain a copy of the questionnaire.
TAKE THE CANDIDA TEST
The following questionnaire was created by William G. Crook, MD. Dr. Crook published a book in 1983 called "The Yeast Connection". Dr. Crook brought to light the fact that Candida Albicans is a fungus that lives in our intestines. This fungus is capable of producing 180 chemical toxins that can literally shut down your thyroid, push your hormones off kilter, cause weight issues along with alcohol and sugar cravings.
Dr. Crook passed on in October of 2002 but his work continues on today. We at New Medicine Foundation are grateful to Dr. Crook and also to Dr. C. Orian Truss. These two pioneers are responsible for bringing these fungus and yeast problems to light. They have given us valuable tools that are needed in order to know when we have an overgrowth of Candida and how best to deal with it and heal our bodies. Candida is nothing to laugh about. If you have ever experienced an overgrowth situation, I know you can attest to the fact that it can be painful and debilitating.
Let's get started and see if you might be a candidate to trial some anti-candida antifungals that could very well save you from the pain and agony of complications related to this widely misunderstood problem.
Section I focuses on your medical history; in particular, factors that can promote the growth of Candida.

SUBTOTAL FOR SECTION III



Scoring: Total Score Section I ________


Total Score Section II ________
Total Score Section III ________
GRAND TOTAL SCORE ________

Having this information readily available will help the New Medicine Foundation decide if your health problems could be connected to an over-abundance of yeast. Scores for women will be a bit higher than they are for men as seven of the questions pertain exclusively to women while only two pertain exclusively to men.


Scores over 180 for women and 140 for men indicate an almost certain probability that yeast is connected to health issues.
Scores over 120 for women and over 90 for men indicate a very good chance that yeast is possibly connected to health issues.
Scores over 60 for women and over 40 for men indicate that health issues are less apt to be caused by yeast issues.
