The best frequency for Candida cleansing depends on your personal situation. How do you know you need a cleanse? Well, you need a cleanse when you’re feeling below par. When your health is bad. When you’ve taken a lot of medications. When you’ve been sick for a long time.
But a cleanse is not only required in those situations. I think it is very intelligent to do a yearly cleanse. It doesn’t have to be a Candida cleanse. It can be an overall rejuvenation or detoxification.
The “right” frequency for a Candida cleanse is when you need it. Preferably do it when you can assess the gut before and after the cleanse. Doing a comprehensive stool analysis can tell you what needs to be fixed. Doing another one after treatment can tell you if the cleanse was effective. Sometimes, you may need to do some fine-tuning or a little bit of side cleansing when you’ve finished your major Candida cleanse.
Spring is a perfect time for a cleanse. I will often take the time to change how I eat in the spring. I increase my intake of green smoothies for about two weeks. It’s a way of doing a bit of liver and kidney detoxification. That’s entirely different from a Candida cleanse. A Candida cleanse means we’ve positively detected Candida in the gut. A Candida cleanse should not done based on an assumption. A Candida cleanse is a targeted protocol with detailed information about what supplements to take and for how long. Then we’re going to reassess that digestive system.

Too many people make assumptions. They say, “Oh, I’ve got Candida. I need to go on a candida detox.” Then when they’ve done that, they do another one and another one. Or they stay on it for 12 months. I’ve had people stay on these crazy diets for four or five years. There would be a big gap in my life if I went on a diet
like that for five years. I don’t understand why people have this constant need for flushes and cleanses.
We don’t need to cleanse as much as you think we do. We need to follow a diet and lifestyle that keeps us well after the cleanse. But we don’t need to go from one cleanse to another. If we’re cautious with medications, diet, lifestyle, travel, and hygiene, we can cut back on a ton of different parasites, bacteria, and yeast from overproliferating in our gut.
I’m not a fan of people constantly doing gallbladder flushes, constantly doing colonics, constantly doing coffee enemas. I mean, for goodness sakes, what’s left to clean if you’ve cleaned everything up? The beneficial bacteria, that’s what you’re getting rid of. I know many people who ruined their guts by going for too long or too hard with cleansing. Particularly when it comes to repeatedly doing coffee enemas or colonics. You’re washing away beneficial bacteria along with the bad.
The take-home message is a) don’t do repeated cleanses or flushes because it’s usually counterproductive and b) tailor the duration and nature of your Candida cleanse to what’s in your gut. Don’t treat based on assumptions.
