Candida Detox Cleanse

A 7 day colon cleanse

Here's a 7 day plan that you can use for your detox. Of course this is just a rough outline, you don't need to follow it exactly. Start with a colonic on the first day, then on alternating days for the rest of the week. Learn more about colonics here.
8:00am .... Detox drink (see recipe)
10:00am .. Broth soup (see recipe)
12:00pm .. Colonic irrigation (alternate days), followed by a probiotic after treatment
1:00pm .... Detox drink
3:00pm .... Broth soup
5:00pm .... Detox drink
7:00pm .... Liver flush drink (see recipe)
Be sure to keep drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated and to flush away toxins. You can make things easier on yourself by preparing large amounts of broth soup once every three days.
This type of cleanse is generally very safe, but if you have any health problems or concerns, please consult your doctor before starting.

Recipe: Vegetable Broth

3-4 potatoes, peeled and diced
1 small onion, diced
3-4 stalks of fresh grown celery, thinly sliced
1-2 fresh grown carrots, thinly sliced
Cayenne pepper (optional)
1 large handful of greens such as kale or chard, chopped
Place ingredients in 3 quarts (about 3 liters)of pure or distilled water. Simmer for 20 minutes, strain the liquid, discard the veggies and drink. If you'd like to spice it up a little, throw in some cayenne pepper.
You should drink 2-3 bowls of this vegetable broth each day to replace depleted minerals. Use organic vegetables if possible!
You might be wondering, "If potatoes and carrots are on the Candida Foods To Avoid list, why are they in the vegetable broth?". Well, the key is that you are discarding the vegetables before you drink the broth. This mean you are getting vitamins and minerals of the veggies, but without the carbs that would feed your Candida!

Recipe: Detox drink

1 cup of water
1 Tsp Psyllium Husk powder
1 Tsp Bentonite Clay
Psyllium and Bentonite clay don't mix well with water, so shake up the mixture for a few seconds then quickly drink it before it settles. Drink another extra large glass of water immediately after.
Both these ingredients are great for detox. The Bentonite clay soaks up toxins, and the Psyllium pushes waste matter out through your colon.

Recipe: Liver Flush drink

1 cup water
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 clove of garlic
Small chunk of ginger
Just blend all the ingredients together and drink.

More about Colonic Irrigation

Ideally you should get a colonic every second day during this process. During a session of colonic therapy, which typically lasts around 45 minutes, the patient lies down and is first given a gentle but firm massage in the lower stomach area. This is to loosen the materials that the colonic will expunge.
A small, sterile and disposable plastic tube is then inserted into the rectum and warm water is passed into the colon. Clients typically report a warm feeling but often have little sensation of the colonic, although it can feel slightly uncomfortable the first time.
The water is allowed to gently flow into your colon, then you push it out along with the fecal matter that it has loosened. This cycle repeats several times. Other liquids, often coffee, are then typically added to the water to further help with the loosening.

Option 2: Colon Cleansing without Irrigation

If colonic irrigation doesn't sound like your thing, don't worry. You can still do a very effective colon cleanse without it. This method is not as intense, however it will still do a great job of eliminating the Candida.
Just take the 7 day colon cleanse (see above), and remove the colonic irrigation. You should still drink the detox drink, broth soup and liver flush, and remember to drink lots of water.

Option 3: A Detoxing Healthy Diet

If colonic treatments don't appeal to you, and you are struggling to stick to the fast, you can still do a detox. Think about what you eat - fast food is overloaded with additives, beef has added growth hormone, and fish are full of the various chemicals that are pumped into the oceans. Even if you don't follow the stricter cleanses in option 1 or 2, you can detox your diet by cutting out these unnecessary toxins.
Option 3 is a strict (but very healthy) diet, with the addition of detox drinks and a liver flush. Eating fresh organically grown vegetables is a great start and will stop any more toxins from entering your system. Always remember to drink lots of water too. Here are the details:
  • Eat only raw salads and steamed vegetables
  • Drink a detox drink (recipe) 3 times each day
  • Drink a liver flush (recipe) every evening, at least two hours after your last detox drink
  • Do the cleanse for 7-14 days
Avoid starchy vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, potatoes, yams, corn, all squash except zucchini, beets, peas, parsnips and all beans except green beans. They all contain sugar and can lead to Candida overgrowth.
Raw salads and steamed vegetables might not sound that exciting, but you can use salt, pepper, lemon juice and various herbs and spices to liven them up. Check out the lists of 'Seasonings' and 'Herbs And Spices' on our Foods to Eat page.
The detox drinks must be taken on an empty stomach, so don't eat anything for an hour before and after you drink it. The easiest times are usually first thing in the morning, one in the afternoon, and two hours before bedtime.
Note: If you are experiencing an irregular heartbeat, nausea or any other worrying symptoms, you should stop the cleanse immediately and consult your health professional.

What Causes the Toxic Build-up in your Colon?

We put our colons under a great deal of stress with our modern lifestyle. Years of fast food, cigarettes, prescription drugs and alcohol keep the colon busy. Add Candida to that mixture, and you have a recipe for an unhealthy colon.
Water and the Candida Cleanse The colon is the waste pipe of the body. Once the nutrients are taken out and processed, the waste from your food intake is passed through the colon and expelled from your body.
What many people don't realize is that this fecal matter, including the Candida yeast, can get backed up and solidified in your colon. Without a regular cleansing program it can get trapped there for years or decades, slowly releasing toxins into your system.
The waste matter hardens, fixing itself to the wall of the colon. Sometimes an unhealthy colon will have attached to it up to 20 pounds of this matter that just won't go away! Ever wondered why you sometimes feel heavy and bloated?
This waste material can serve as a breeding ground for Candida, releasing toxins into your bloodstream. They can spread through your body, affecting every part of it. Hence the need to flush out your system with a good cleanse.

Foods to Eat in the Candida Diet

Category Foods to Eat Notes
Brussel sprouts
Collard greens
Garlic (raw)
Spaghetti squash
Summer squash
Swiss chard
  • Vegetables starve the Candida of the sugar and mold diet that feed it
  • They also absorb fungal poisons and carry them out of your body
  • Avoid starchy vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, potatoes, yams, corn, all squash except zucchini, beets, peas, parsnips and all beans except green beans
  • You should buy your vegetables fresh and eat them raw, steam or grill them. Add a little garlic and onions for flavor as they are especially helpful with Candida
  • Live yogurt cultures (or probiotics) help your gut to repopulate itself with good bacteria
  • The live bacteria in the yogurt will crowd out the Candida yeast and restore balance to your system
  • Especially useful after a course of antibiotics, or when a patient is suffering from Candida
  • Yogurt from goat and sheep milk is even better, as they tend to contain fewer chemicals
  • Good bacteria will also produce antifungal enzymes that can help you fight Candida
  • Proteins almost completely free of sugars and mold, so they fill you up while restricting the Candida
  • Eat fresh and organic meat if possible - processed meat like lunch meat, bacon and spam, is loaded with dextrose nitrates, sulphates and sugars
  • Smoked or vacuum packed meats are also best avoided
  • Most Atkins recipes will also work reasonably well in a Candida diet
NUTS AND SEEDS Nuts and seeds that don't contain a high mold content
  • Nuts are a high protein food that starves Candida and restricts its growth
  • Avoid peanuts and pistachios as they tend to have a higher mold content
  • You can remove mold by soaking the nuts in water
  • Another tip to remove mold - spray the nuts with a diluted grapefruit seed extract solution
Wild and brown rice
  • Grains contain a high amount of fiber, excellent for keeping the colon clear so Candida doesn't get a chance to multiply.
  • Grains also act like a pipecleaner in your intestine, grabbing nasty toxins like pollutants, chemicals, pesticides and heavy metals on their way through.
Black Pepper
  • Contain antioxidants and anti-fungal properties
  • Increase circulation and reduce inflammation
  • Improve digestion and alleviate constipation
  • Most herbs and spices are beneficial in your fight against Candida
  • They're great for livening up food if you're on a limited Candida diet
OILS Virgin Coconut Oil
Olive Oil
Sesame Oil
Pumpkin seed oil
Macadamia Oil
Almond Oil
Flax Oil
Coconut oil
Coconut butter
Organic butter
  • Use cold pressed oils
  • Heating or boiling destroys many of the oils' nutrients
SEASONING Black Pepper
Sea Salt
Lemon Juice

HERBAL TEAS Cinnamon Tea
Clove Tea
Chamomile Tea
Pau D'arco Tea
Peppermint Tea
Ginger Tea
Licorice Tea
Lemongrass Tea
  • All of these herbal teas have antifungal properties
  • If you're missing your morning coffee, try Green Tea instead
