SYSTEMIC CANDIDA & WATER FASTING

Dear Dr

When a person has systemic candida and fungal problems, (let's say since birth, for 28 years) and it has permeated organs and tissues, and has already pleo-morphed into more aggressive forms..can fasting help reverse this?
Somebody said that for systemic stubborn Candida, fasting is not the solution because it feeds on ketones? It continues to grow, and the answer is either to use various agents to kill it off, OR, to use various agents to help pleo-morph it back into the non harmful form.

But when one has multiple problems , struggling for years, and impaired digestion, all of that does not sound appealing...all the protocols...They wish they can just "skip it all" and fast, and hope things get better. But what have you seen with aggressive forms of candida, etc?

Appreciate your insights.

Firstly, dear Dreams, in my experience all the symptoms ascribed to poor old innocent Candida (and other fungi) are actually caused by other things. These fungi simply over-grow in habitats where conditions allow, they don't cause these! Many people and organizations blame these harmless creatures for all and sundry, mainly to get people to part with their hard earned money.

I simply ignore monocellular fungi in the body. They are all over around all our cells all the time anyway. Kill what you have now and others will simply take their place.

One reason why I don't believe the horror stories is that there are many, many much more aggressive organisms all around us which would have invaded long, long before any of the candida species, for example, would have been able to. Thus, if these real pathogenic microbes are not there, then our immune systems are up to the job and the commensals are simply sharing our environment.

I have never encountered these so called "aggressive forms". I actually believe they do not exist. They are at worst markers (not causes) of underlying conditions and only made into scapegoats by fearmongers with lack of scientific knowledge.

Did I express myself bluntly enough? The biggest danger is that we would now blame the blameless, become complacent and stop looking for the real cause(s) of our problems.

Thank you Dr Kruger for your insights.
I had pondered this dilemma of people suffering from overgrowths and how popular this became. I think it ties to drug overuse, environmental contaminants, the explosion of machine made foods and sugar... etc. Somehow I don't believe people 300 years ago had all those symptoms we now call candida and fungal overgrowth, and it was an obsession like it is today...
Apparently in German biological medicine, there are now remedies that somehow coax the bugs to shift back to non harmful forms. They understanding killing is futile.

In my situation, I have a lot of 'serious' problems. A lot of structural problems as well.
Meaning, my organs and bones are always shifting and moving out of proper position, causing me lot's of pain, and makes me rely upon bodyworkers and an appliance in my mouth to help me breathe, and stop clenching of the jaw/teeth (which causes a host of problems) and keep blood flow/O2 into my head. Many have told me fasting is not good, mostly because of my level of infection in the body- CHRONIC infection i might add. (but on the outside i look pretty normal!)
(and some say that the structural deficiencies relate back to toxicity, infection, etc)

But my feeling has told me that as long as I'm not fasting, it means I'm eating, and eating has not helped me ...in 10 years, with different "SCD specific carbohydate diets", and other diets. My gi tract is really shot.
They tell me that I need to kill off some infections and then maybe attempt to fast.
What are your thoughts on this? I realize you cannot give medical advice online.

Much appreciated.

Remember dear Dreams, the entire lining of the GI tract is replaced in about 4 days. Thus past issues is not necessarily carried over.

Also bear in mind that if we were to extract all the DNA in the body, those belonging to microbes (viruses, bacteria, fungi, etc) will weigh about twice as much as the human ones (those from your own cells). We NEED microbes to have a balanced internal ecosystem. They are not the enemy. Our fears are often more damaging than that what we fear.
