Do you or anyone you know struggle with symptoms like:
- Brain fog
- Feeling worse after eating sugars
- Yeast infections
- Vaginal itching
- White patches on tongue
- Oral thrush
- Low mood
- Joint pain
- Red spots on tongue
- Jock itch
- Skin fungus
- Athlete’s foot
- Toe nail fungus
These are all potential symptoms of candida/fungal overgrowth. It’s actually an incredibly common issue that I see in many of my clients due to the overwhelming amount of toxicity that we have in today’s world! And we absolutely have simple steps that we can take over time to address it at a root cause level.
The problem is that…
When you see a “conventional medicine” trained practitioner, whether it be your family doctor or nurse practitioner, OB-GYN, podiatrist, etc for candida/fungal issues, they will typically go with some type of anti-fungal medication like nystatin or fluconazole, maybe some Monistat if it’s a vaginal yeast infection, some type of topical anti-fungal cream if its a fungal infection on the foot or elsewhere on the skin.
And it’s not that these things DON’T address the fungal overgrowth, but they’re not getting the root of the issue. They’re not address the other factors that create the perfect environment for the candida to be able to overgrow.
For too many years I too relied on a never-ending cycle of nystatin, fluconazole, etc, to manage my recurring Candida and yeast infections. My Integrative MD had me leverage those products, in addition to countless antifungal herbs to address the never-ending candida overgrowth cycle.
I couldn’t understand why it kept coming back. But my functional MD was there to write a script anytime I needed it. I’d be much more cognizant of my sugar🍪 intake as well until symptoms resolve it, and then when everything appeared to be back to normal, I figured I was in the clear, only to have it become an issue in another few months.
I, like so many others, was stuck in this cycle because I never addressed the other variables.
❌Birth control usage
❌Poor nervous system regulation
They were all at the root of this never ending cycle. I may have been addressing the candida, but the rest of the terrain in my body still remained ideal for candida overgrowth.
Let’s unpack some of these root cause variables so you can better understand how they can be correlated!
🔺Poor Nervous System Regulation & Stress: Both keep the ileocecal valve open, connecting the small and large intestines, contributing to issues like SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) and gut dysbiosis (imbalanced gut microbiome). Stress and nervous system dysregulation also contribute to gut permeability, inflammation, and often lead to impaired digestion and/or slowed bowel motility that have a downstream affect for candida overgrowth.
🔺Environmental toxins: Toxins like the commonly used pesticide/herbicide, Glyphosate (aka Round Up), affects the lymphatics of the gut and contributes to inflammatory bowel diseases like colitis and as well as other inflammatory gut conditions like Leaky Gut and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. An inflamed gut creates perfect conditions for fungal overgrowth. Additionally, Glyphosate disrupts the microbial balance of the gut, allowing for fungal overgrowth.
🔺Parasites: Not only do many of them send chemical messengers, slowing bowel motility, causing a downstream effect on bacterial/fungal overgrowth. But they also are sponges for other toxins and pathogens that they harbor and release over time, contributing to a toxic environment that encourages fungal overgrowth
Mold & Heavy Metals: Both of these families of toxins can cause gut permeability, suppress immune system function, be used to create biofilms in the gut to help protect other pathogens who want to take up host in the GI tract, and of course, create the perfect environment for Candida and SIBO!
So now the question is, “What are some of our options we can leverage to address these root causes and break the cycle?”
If you are solely committed to self-navigating the process of addressing candida overgrowth (while also supporting the appropriate drainage pathways and simultaneously addressing some coinciding root causes), CellCore’s Stomach Support Kit Protocol would probably be my go-to product.
This protocol is a carefully curated 3-month protocol designed to help you open up your drainage pathways to prepare your body for deeper detox and clean up, strategically support specific drainage pathways ongoingly that tend to play the biggest role in fungal overgrowth issues, and move you through the use of proprietary herbal blends, bioactive carbon binders, and probiotics that are specifically geared toward addressing candida and other fungal overgrowth, mold, heavy metals, parasites, and environmental toxins at the mitochondrial level to give you a powerful, comprehensive approach to breaking the candida cycle.
If you don’t already have a CellCore customer account with me, please create one using Patient Direct Code BX35QNDP.
Of course, if you’re at the stage in your healing where you’d prefer to take a more bio-individualized, one-on-one approach and link arms as practitioner and client, my Healing Accelerator Bundle is where we would begin!

P.S. If you’re dealing with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Crohn’s disease, colitis, ulcerative colitis, acid reflux, GERD, SIBO, SIFO, leaky gut, or other gut diagnoses, keep these variables in mind. The same root causes are at the core of these gut issues!
P.S.S. If you continue to have reoccurring infections, whether it be candida, other gut issues, or even other infections like Lyme Disease or Epstein Barr Virus (EBV), you HAVE to start looking at these other root cause variables like mold, metals, parasites, environmental toxins, nervous system dysregulation, medications, unaddressed dental infections, etc
