Candida Albicans
Dear Friends,

Dear Friends,

There is an insidious problem that is plaguing us today that gets very little recognition. As a matter of fact most doctors scoff at it and those who take it seriously are at a loss for how to treat it. It is the basis of diseases like Epstein Barr [Chronic Fatigue], Fibromyalgia and depression. It is a condition called a Candida Infection. More accurately it is an overgrowth of a one celled organism that is a normal part of our intestinal flora. It acts in the intestines much like insulin acts in the blood as it cleans up any undigested sugar.  Candida is yeast and anyone who has made bread can tell you that you need moisture, warmth and sugar to grow the yeast.  If there is a constant supply of undigested sugar, the candida population grows out of balance.  When candida is in the “overgrowth” state it is for all intents and purposes, a parasite that lives off of the food you eat and spills its waste into your system.  The toxins from candida cause you to feel sick and miserable. When the candida is not receiving the amount of sugar it needs to feed its overblown population, it releases chemicals that cause you to crave carbs and sugar. So you are actually craving something that is bad for you but good for your parasites.
It is estimated that eighty percent of Americans have a Candida Overgrowth disorder….What causes this?
That’s the bad news; the good news is that you can reverse this condition in as little as a month by following my three-part program as follows:

1] Provide Support for Immune System
[  Take Endocrine Strengthener available from The Healing Path www.myhealingpath.com 
[  Get plenty of rest [at least 7 hours per night-sleep in total darkness]
[  Take a high potency multi-vitamin and mineral - take extra vitamin A, C and E
[  Take one tablespoon of flaxseed oil daily

2] Flush the Digestive Tract and Balance Intestinal Flora.
[  Drink lots of water; this will help flush the system and reduce the discomfort you feel as the yeast dies off. Remember that sometimes you feel worse before you feel better.
[  Eat foods that add healthy bacteria [raw sauerkraut-the kind in bags, Kefir, Yogurt, Miso Soup, Kimchi and Naturally Fermented Apple Cider Vinegar]
[  Take a sugar free Metamucil type fiber supplement daily.
Very Important: If you don’t have a bowel movement daily; start your program with step one and two. Proceed to step three once you have achieved regularity.

3] Stop feeding the yeast by following the Candida Control Diet: (For at least one Month)
Eliminate all sugars [you may use the herb stevia-brand names-Stevia in the Raw, Purvia, Truvia]
[  Limit carbohydrates to 10-15 grams per meal
Eliminate white flour, white rice, and pasta.
[  Keep even whole grains to a minimum because your body turns carbs into sugar.
[  Limit dairy products because of lactose (milk sugar.) but fermented dairy such as Kefir or yogurt is encouraged as long as you stay with in your carbohydrate limit.
Eliminate all known or suspected food allergens.
Discontinue use of all antibiotics unless it is an absolute medical necessity
[  Eat all the high quality lean protein that you want. Go easy on the processed meats.
[  I recommend The Protein Power Plan by doctors Michael and Mary Eades or South Beach Diet. If you choose South Beach Diet you must stay on Phase one for one month rather than the suggested two weeks
Eliminate the use of antibiotics, steroids, immune suppressing drugs, and birth control pills
Note: Although it is suggested to limit dairy products, I think it is important to eat yogurt because the acidophilus in yogurt is very beneficial in bringing the intestinal flora back into balance. Even better than yogurt is Kefir which has 10 times more beneficial probiotics than yogurt. Reduced “friendly” bacteria is one of the causes of candida overgrowth. If you do not like yogurt or kefir, you may want to consider purchasing a probiotic as a supplement. That said, I still prefer to my probiotics from fermented foods.
Fibromyalgia – follow the above recommendations but a Fibro-Nervine from The Healing Path to your program.

If you follow this program you will feel better than you ever thought possible after a month. You will find that before long you stop craving carbohydrates as your blood sugar stops the peaking and plummeting cycle.

More information is available upon request. Knowledge is power; use this knowledge to restore your health and regain your vitality. Have a safe and happy June.
Love and Light, Lori

Endocrine Strengthener
For autoimmune disorders – alopecia totalis

Endocrine Strengthener fortifies the immune system by nourishing the endocrine glands. It has been very helpful for those with alopecia totalis and highly recommended for anyone fighting a Candida overgrowth. This formula can also be to ward off colds and flu when taken at the first signs. Endocrine Strengthener is highly recommended for anyone suffering from any form of autoimmune disorder such as Alopecia Totalis; Lupus; arthritis; chronic fatigue; Epstein Barr and Crohn’s. Alopecia Areata, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis are autoimmune disorders in which the immune system attacks health hair follicles causing baldness that ranges from patchy bald spots to total loss of body hair.
Note: At the first sign of cold or flu take 5-10 eyedroppers full 2-3 times daily for 2-4 days. Judge the proper amount based on your size and condition of your immune system.

* Do you have frequent yeast infections or candida overgrowth?

What to Expect When Taking
Endocrine Strengthener for Alopecia

            Endocrine Strengthener is an herbal tincture that balances the immune system. If you read my story on my website, you probably know that it cured my Alopecia Totalis (loss of hair, eyebrows and eyelashes). Since then I have enormous success with my clients. I recommend giving it at least three to six months of consistent doses to give your immune system a chance to normalize.
            Endocrine Strengthener comes in a four oz bottle and the dose is 1 dropper (ONE SQUEEZE OF THE BULB) per 50 lbs, of body weight 2 times daily (usually morning and evening). If for some reason you miss a dose, simply double the next dose. One bottle lasts about a month for 150 lb person at the normal dose. Please read all the literature that comes with your order.
            For the first week it is suggested to double the normal dose to help jump-start your immune system.
I would say that the success rate of those who have stayed in touch with me and have been consistent in their doses is about 80-90 percent.
Some people show results in the first month but I suggest taking Endocrine Strengthener for at least three to six months to give it a chance to rebuild your immune system. Children seem to recover quicker than adults do and women generally recover quicker than men. Also you should consider the degree of alopecia you have and adjust the time accordingly.
If you have Alopecia Areata [patchy balding] give it at least 3 months. If you have Alopecia Totalis [no hair, eyebrows or eyelashes] give it at least 5 months. If you have Alopecia Universalis [no hair anywhere on the body] give it at least 6 months. Of not everyone will fall into these categories as we are all individuals.
You should start to see hair growing after this time. You will probably notice that you have more energy, fewer colds and generally just feel better due to your improved immune system. But please keep in touch with me and let me know how you are feeling; though some cases can be stubborn; there are things we can do to tweak your recovery.
This really works; try to be patient; one gentleman took 9 months before hair started showing but he had the most severe form, alopecia universalis.
            When the hair first comes in it is light and wispy but as it grows it turns back to its natural thickness and color.
You should continue to take Endocrine Strengthener if you see re-growth. Remember that it is not just growing hair but it is restoring your compromised immune system. This takes time.
            For anyone who has had alopecia for any length of time and has tried many treatments that ultimately failed, it is hard to believe that anything will work. I know because after 11 years I had given up hope that I would EVER have hair again.
            So I ask you to trust the treatment because it works.
