There are many different types of Candida, including Candida lusitaniae, Candida tropicalis, Candida parapsilosis, and Candida glabrata.
I see them all in my clinic because that’s my specialty.
Candida glabrata, for example, is not that common. Candida krusei, I see rarely.
Albicans makes up for about 50 percent or more. I would say that Tropicalis is about four to five percent.
My knowledge on this topic is based on my clinical experiences spanning 31 years and many thousands of yeast infected patients. But my understanding is also based on speaking to people that are far more expert than I am in mycology or fungal studies.
Candida tropicalis is more common in people involved in marine environments like swimming and oceans and eating a lot of seafood.
Tropicalis can be hard to eradicate. I find tropicalis harder to eradicate than Candida Albicans. The reason being, mainly, because it’s a “tropical” Candida.
People who live in the tropics have a more challenging time getting rid of Candida period, than people who live in Iceland or Greenland, where it’s a lot colder.
Part of the reason is the heat and humidity. The other part of the reason is their diet. Tropical diets tend to be higher in sweet fruits, spices, and sweet foods.
Biofilm is not something associated with Candida tropicalis.
Biofilms, in particular, are seen in people who’ve got multiple Candida species and many other bacteria and crappy diets that support biofilm production.
If you don’t want biofilm, eat well. Take anti-fungals and anti-microbials. Never drink alcohol if you’re going to avoid biofilms. Avoid pharmaceutical drugs if you’re going to prevent biofilms.
How do we eradicate tropicalis?
The same way we eradicate all the other 18 species of Candida I commonly see.
We take an anti-fungal. We take a diet that’s high in anti-fungal and anti-microbial foods.
We’re going to look at garlic in our diet. We’re going to look at ginger. We’re going to look at a lot of fresh herbs, particularly oregano, thyme, marjoram, and rosemary. All these woody herbs are excellent because they help to eradicate lots of different microbes from the body.
Clove and cinnamon are good spices for an anti-Candida diet.
We need to include the low sugar fruits for the first three months, and eventually, we can add more. We need to add plenty of vegetables to the diet that facilitates great fermentation and good bacteria in the small and large intestine, particularly in the ilium and in the colon.

If you’ve got an incredibly bad Candida infection and multiple species and you live in the tropics, sometimes moving to a cooler climate, bang, infection gone!
CanXida Remove that I formulated in 2013, works fantastic with Candida tropicalis. I’ve had several favorable outcomes, which I’ve seen in pre- and post-stool testing, where we had a positive culture of 1 or 2+. We went to nil growth within three months, so you can defeat Candida tropicalis.
Look at a broad spectrum anti-microbial. Make sure that the anti-microbial has berberine in it.
Preferably grapefruit seed extract.
Preferably undecylenic acid.
Preferably caprylic acid.
All the things that I like and use in my clinic.
I put them all in one tablet called CanXida Remove.
I found it effective against all 19 strains of Candida that I’ve come across in my clinic, including Candida tropicalis.
