Sugar cravings are often a sign of a yeast overgrowth. Here is a link to The Randy & Christa Show where we discuss candida in depth as well as how to do a three-day DIY test for it that is both free and easy: Could it be Candida?
Christa's Kick Candida Cleanse has been tried and tested by over a thousand clients. Since she does not see private clients any longer so she is providing all her knowledge and wisdom on candida, parasites, and leaky gut syndrome (intestinal permeability) in her Kick Candida for Good Cleanse.
You have to make the best choice for you. Our cleanse is not just around candida, but around the underlying triggers that both cause it and make it worse. The cleanse dives deep into carbohydrate consumption, killing other pathogens/parasites, clearing candida (and potentially heavy metal toxicity), rebuilding the immune system, gut repair (healing leaky gut), and fine tuning the thyroid and adrenal glands. It is the most comprehensive, effective candida program out there and has been tested on over 1000 clients.
However, this is a DIY cleanse so there will not be anyone there per se to dive into your case specifically. You can get support from others in the cleanse in our private online forum so you will not feel alone and there will be a sense of community, however there will not be individual support from Christa. You will need to weigh that option.
This cleanse is also not your be-all, end-all or the panacea to all of your health issues. It very well could dramatically positively impact your life for the rest of your life and slash your lifetime changes of GI Cancer by 75%, but the human body is complicated and not everyone gets glowing results. Sometimes this cleanse reveals a deeper health issue that needs to be concurrently addressed.
The cleanse itself lasts 6-10 weeks, depending the level of your candida overgrowth and because there is a gut rebuilding program at the end. There are five modules of the cleanse and it is designed for you to go through one module per week for five weeks.
You will need at least one hour per week to watch the presentations, plus extra time for grocery shopping, cooking, and personal care. We suggest carving out 3 additional hours on a weekend to shop and prep your food for the week.
You may begin at any time. You will have lifetime access to the material so it's your choice if you want to purchase now and start collecting the materials, or wait until you are ready to begin the cleanse. Keep in mind that you cannot do this cleanse halfway. You must commit to it 100% for it to work.
Yes, it has different rules and is less restrictive than the GAPS diet, but it includes full gut repair after the eradication of the candida. The gut repair includes repopulating with good flora, rebuilding hydrochloric acid production, and sealing up "leaky gut".
Absolutely. You can access the materials from anywhere as long as you have Internet and email access. You are responsible for procuring the suggested cleanse supplements. We cannot guarantee that you will be able to find every product that is suggested, so you will have to find comparable products in your country, which can be done, but may require some research on your part to match the doses and quality.
The cleanse does not come with supplements, just the e-products/information. Yes, you can order supplements from wherever you like (we provide links for online ordering) or you may purchase them at your local health food store. The total amount you'll likely spend in supplements is about $150-$275, depending on the level of your candida growth and how imbalanced your hormones might be (because this cleanse includes hormonal balance). Colonics are suggested, but not required.
It's helpful, but not necessary. If you are eating clean before you begin, your die off symptoms will be less severe. You can jump into the candida cleanse and then take it slower if you get too many die off symptoms all at once.
TWJ candida cleanse is effective at removing 70-80% of parasites and pathogens.
Yes it is possible to eradicate candida while on birth control. We give a supplement plan to offset the adverse effects of birth control (it kills our good gut bacteria and leaches B vitamins) in the program and do not usually suggest you go off any medications without talking to your physician.
You don't want to take any of the candida cleanse supplements (except the probiotic regimen) while you are nursing, but you can follow the food recommendations of the candida cleanse which will still be beneficial and a very balancing diet. Then when you finish nursing, you can go through your rounds of anti-fungals and anti-candida agents.
Yes, there is a very good chance that it can help you but you will have to take the time to listen to all 5 presentations and read all the materials before you dive in. This way, you can highly customize the cleanse to yourself and your specific needs (i.e. –constipation). However, if you are looking for individualized attention, this program does not yet provide that except from our community on our private discussion board.
Absolutely, I go into gut repair in phase 2 of the course because candida and parasites cause leaky gut and that must be fixed in order for your healing to last. It is very comprehensive GI repair. If you grow legs and don't sink, likely a 6-week cleanse (versus 8-10 weeks) is perfect for you and will get a lot of traction. Make sure you are off dairy and stay hydrated during the test to afford for more accurate results.
It is safe to do a candida cleanse as long as you concurrently (and gently) chelate metals out of the blood (that may have potentially leaked from the fillings). If you have trouble getting rid of the candida or you notice symptoms like loss of taste, that is a sign the metals are being uncovered and need to be removed. We do that with specific detoxifiers, chelators, glutathione, and chlorella. I address this in depth in the program and give protocols.
It's always best to get a mercury test to remove the guess work of how much the metals are affecting you. That information will help you be most successful in customizing our cleanse to your current health situation.
When doing this with children, have them eat according to the diet, plus an additional 10-20% carbs. I would not suggest putting kids under age 10 on supplements to err on the side of caution (except the probiotic program and fish oil).
100% yes, plus our unique approach to anti-fungals boosts white blood cells and goes deep into the intestinal wall to kill it before it can pass into the bloodstream.
It can be constructed (with some effort on your part) to be vegan-friendly BUT you will have to soak and sprout and your nuts and seeds to get enough protein and to keep mold content low enough. We amend the cleanse to allow for an extra 10% carbs for vegans and vegetarians. We have had many vegan success stories but highly prefer high quality animal protein on this cleanse.
This candida cleanse is 100% gluten free.
I have no doubt that once you enter The Whole Journey Candida Cleanse that you will quickly realize how valuable this program is. If for any reason you don't, I am happy to offer a 14-day "Action Takers" guarantee. By action taker, I mean that you have to work the program for a full 14 days, being on and eating according to the cleanse protocol. Once you provide us a two-page summary of the action you took, documenting your food journal for a full 7 days, and you still are not 100% satisfied, we will be more than happy to provide a 100% refund. If you do not plan to take action, do not enjoy online learning, and are not a self-starter, this program is not for you.
Please note that when cleansing from candida, you may feel worse during the elimination phase before you feel better as your body rids itself of candida. We are only looking for those serious about implementing our program therefore refunds will not be given if you haven't implemented the program.
