Here are ten pointers that I think will help anyone get in the right place to do a Candida cleanse.
1. Understand that cleaning up your gut is going to take a lot more time than you think. Most things in life that are good don’t come quickly – the same is true for bringing your gut health to a great level.
2. Organize your time. You may need to take some time off work to heal yourself and get back on track. If you can afford to take time away, its better than working while you feel crappy.
3. Get your refrigerator and pantry read by getting rid of all the junk food in the house. You need to give your candy and ice away. You need to stock your kitchen with the healthy, whole foods you’re going to be eating on the Candida cleanse.
4. If you have chronic GI symptoms, get a comprehensive stool analysis through Doctor’s Data in Chicago or Genova Diagnostics. Once you have the results, you can customize your Candida cleanse based on your gut. It always pays to have the correct information before you start embarking on a program. That way you’re not flying blind. You don’t’ want to embark upon treatment until you know what’s happening in your digestive system.

5. Be prepared for the diet changes coming your way. That means no alcohol, a serious reduction of tea and coffee, and removing treats and take-you food from your diet. You’re not going to get well if you’re drinking alcohol every night. It’s not going to happen.
6. Don’t make assumptions about what is going on inside your body. Don’t assume you have Candida if it hasn’t been confirmed by testing. You may have Citrobacter, Pseudomonas, or Blastocystis instead of Candida. It’s very important to not act on preconceived ideas.
7. Don’t spend a fortune on dietary supplements. You just need a few carefully selected, high-quality products. I’ve seen so many people waste vast amounts of money on supplements they didn’t need.
8. Use common sense. If it sounds too good to be true, it nearly always is. Many websites come across with the C-word. “We can cure X, Y, or Z in two days.” It’s simply not true. Don’t spend your time chasing false promises.
9. Focus on your overall health, not Candida. Think of how much sleep you’re getting. Review how much stress you have in your life. Make sure you don’t have unresolved conflicts or problems at your job. Don’t focus on disease. Instead focus on wellness and become a health-conscious person. Always focus on success and health. That way you’ll pull out of it a lot faster.
10: Once you’ve made some healthy changes, reward yourself. Go on a trip, have a massage, take a day all to yourself. We’re often told in business if we succeed that we should reward ourselves, but what about in life and health? Should we reward ourselves as well? I think we should.
These ten steps are basic but effective. If you follow them, it’s going to help you achieve your health goals a lot faster than if you don’t.
