Do you get frequent colds, have sinus issues all the time, have a foggy feeling in your head that will not go away, do you have dry skin or dandruff and/or do you have fungus on your groin and/or nails? Well, if you answered yes to any of these questions, you might have an overgrowth of candida (fungus) in your gut. In this newsletter, we will take a look at what fungus is, what causes it, what are the symptoms and how to eradicate it.
Do you have a fungal infection?
What is fungus? Candidiasis is an infection caused by a yeastlike fungus called candida. It can infect the mouth, vagina, skin, stomach, and urinary tract. Approximately 75 percent of women will get candidiasis of the vagina during their lifetime, and 90 percent of all people with HIV/AIDS develop candida infections.
What causes it? Fungal infections such as ringworm are caused by types of fungi that like warm, moist areas of the skin, such as between the toes or fingers, in the groin, and on other parts of the body where there are folds of skin. Ringworm is not caused by a worm. The fungus can be carried by kittens and puppies, combs, brushes, pillows, hats, and towels, and is found in areas that are warm and moist, such as locker rooms and showers.
What are the symptoms? Ringworm of the body looks like a rash that forms one-half to one-inch, ring-shaped, pink or red patches with a clear center. The rash may itch slightly. Jock itch appears around the groin area (but not on the penis) and looks like a red, ring-like rash. Jock itch can be extremely itchy and form small, painful blisters. Athlete’s foot appears between the toes as a scaly, itchy rash. It can range from mild irritation to cracking and peeling, making the skin quite sore and more susceptible to bacterial infection. Scalp ringworm may cause round patches of hair loss, broken hair, and/or an itchy, scaly scalp. Scalp ringworm is extremely contagious among children. Nail ringworm is more common on the toenails than fingernails, and makes the nail appear thickened and dull. The infected part of the nail may crumble away from the rest of the nail. Sometimes a fungal infection on one part of the body can cause a rash on another part of the body, which is an allergic reaction to the fungus.

What to do? 1. Follow the Kaufman Fungal Diet for 6 months. You can purchase the book, the Fungal Link or email me for the protocol. There are 2 phases and each phase is 3 months. This diet will starve the fungus, as fungus feeds on sugar!
2. Follow this protocol for 2 months: a. Oregano oil or caps ( 4 drops of oil on your tongue 4 times per day or 1 cap 4x per day) b. Castor bean oil caps: 3 caps 3x per day c. Cancid Forte: 2 caps 3x per day
If you are unable to find these, please call and you can place an order through us.
3. Eliminate all sugar, dairy, soy, gluten containing foods, grains, alcohol and table salt for 6 months.
4. Eat organic foods only. As most conventional chickens, cows and fish (yes fish) are fed genetically modified grains!
5. If you are suspicious and you want testing, you can order a fungal lab from us at EastWest Healing and Performance. Please call or email to learn more about this lab.
Hopefully we have connected with some of you today, as well as educated you. If you have a lot of these symptoms, please keep in mind it can be fungus, but other bacterial, parasitic or physiological dysfunctions as well. If you are interested in testing, a consultation, or want to learn more, please email us or call the number below. Don’t forget we are at a new location, so if you are local please come visit us at the address below.
