I know it sounds awful, but our body includes hundreds types of yeast and bacteria. Only the digestive track includes more than three pounds of bacteria.
However, when in the right balance, these bacteria are necessary for right digestion and nutrient absorption. For example, probiotics are the beneficial bacteria in the gut and have a great positive impact on your health. But the problems start when the beneficial bacteria in the digestive track get out of balance. These problems are triggered by bacteria imbalance, diet, certain medications, stress, contact with infected sources, etc.
Your body also includes yeast, which is not particularly dangerous in appropriate amounts. But its overgrowth can have a great negative influence on your overall health and fertility.
Yeast multiplies quickly when there are high carbon substances, such as sugar. Yeast can alter sugar into alcohol in the body. This is why people with severe yeast overgrowth have symptoms like brain fog, lightheadedness, and nausea.
There are three steps in treating yeast, parasites, and other fungi in the body. First, they have to be eliminated, then they must be flushed from the body and at the end, the body must be maintained in healing and regenerating itself.
Where and how you can get a parasite?
Parasites can occur in many places, but the biggest reason for their invasion is poor hygiene.
Not properly sanitized food and water
Poor personal hygiene
Food, water and environment while on a foreign travel
A parasitic infection will grow if you have a decreased immune system. Your body is a good host for parasites with the consumption of sugar, refined carbohydrates, alcohol, heavy metals, feeling under stress and various other toxins. Consuming coffee, wheat, dairy and tap water will also make your body an easier environment for parasites.

Natural remedies for yeast and parasite presence:
There are some natural remedies that are helpful and effective at removing yeast and parasites.
If your body has yeast or parasites, any consumed sugars can feed an infestation and make removal very uncomfortable. If you are doing any natural treatment for Candida, fungi or parasites, avoid all natural sugar sources from your diet, including honey and fruits. Also avoid dairy products for 1-2 weeks to boost your body.
When your body eliminates parasites and yeast, their by-products must be eliminated from the body, together with the toxins that they might have joined to. The best way to remove some of these is through the sweat glands. This means that you need to let your body sweat by exercising, taking cayenne supplements and getting in hot tubs or saunas during the healing process.
This substance is able to destroy parasites, yeast and parasite eggs. It is rich in silica, which is necessary for hair, nail and skin growth, and includes other trace minerals too. Moreover, it can help re-establish body tissue and boost digestion. If you want to take this supplementally, begin with 1 teaspoon a day in 8 ounces of water and work up to 1-2 tablespoon daily until yeast symptoms disappear.
Apple cider vinegar
This is another simple and effective remedy for Candida and parasites. This vinegar has highly content of B-vitamins and is very nourishing to the body. Apple cider vinegar helps the neutralization of the body’s pH and improves digestion too. It is very popular for destroying yeast and improving skin condition.
Begin with 1 teaspoon up to 3 times daily about 30 minutes before each meal. If its taste does not bother you, increase the dosage to a tablespoon.
Probiotics renovate the good bacteria in the gut that is removed by yeast or parasites. Probiotics are good and needed in order to repair the proper intestinal flora, even after yeast and parasites have been removed. It is good to consider drinks like Kombucha and Water Kefir to help the increase of probiotic levels, or whole plain full-fat yogurt.
You already know that vitamin C is an excellent antioxidant and supporter of the immune system, but also it is helpful in removing yeast/parasite. Take 5,000 mg (5 grams) per day spread out in 2-3 doses. You should not take vitamin C at the same time as calcium/magnesium because they will neutralize each other. Don’t consume too much of Vitamin C because it may cause loose bowel movements, especially when yeast and parasites are being removed.
Coconut oil has anti fungal properties and is very nourishing to the body. Take several tablespoons a day for an antifungal support. This will also support the hormones and reproductive system. Also, you can dissolve a couple tablespoons in a hot tea of choice and drink.
Chop 1-2 cloves of garlic and drink in a cup of water before meals.
Olive oil also includes antifungal properties that support the elimination of parasite and yeast waste. Add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil or more to salads or veggies, or take supplementally.
Other herbs that can help you with yeast and parasites:
The process of removing yeast and parasites can be uncomfortable at times. Herxheimer’s reaction is basically the distress triggered by the die off of yeast and parasites and the body’s effort to get rid of them. The faster you attempt to treat symptoms and the more potent remedies you take, the higher your chance of experiencing this reaction.
It is best to be on an anti yeast/parasite diet for several weeks before taking supplements to ease this reaction. Start with small doses of apple cider vinegar and diatomaceous earth.
If you catch a cold a week or so after beginning the treatment, it is actually a mild Herxheimer reaction, and backing down supplements and drinking more water should help it pass quickly.
During the process of removing yeast and parasites, it is very important to support your body with regular exercise, good diet, adequate sleep, and limiting exposure to toxins.
You can remove toxins through the skin by soaking in an Epsom salt bath. The toxins can be flushed out quickly with drinking enough water and adequate sleep will help in regeneration of the body.
During the treatment, do not consume sugar or carbs, but enough raw vegetables to keep your energy up and clean the body faster.
The process of removing yeast and parasites from the body can be helped with a grain-free and sugar-free diet too.
