Do You Suffer from Candidiasis?: By Nirala Jacobi ND ( USA)

Candidiasis is an overgrowth of a pathogenic organism called candida albicans, a common yeast or fungus. Candida is an opportunistic organism that lives in the human digestive tract.

In a healthy gut this yeast is kept in check by the acidity of the environment, healthy bacteria (i.e. lactobacillus acidophilus), and by the proper motility (movement) of the colon.

When conditions change, this organism proliferates and can cause a staggering amount of symptoms that are seemingly unrelated to the digestive tract.

The frequent use of antibiotics in our society is one of the biggest culprits. Antibiotics only target bacteria, so they not only kill the bacteria that are causing your sinus infection, but also the healthy ones in your gut! Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum are two of the more well known species of beneficial bacteria in our gut, known collectively as probiotics.

Recent research has shown the importance of probiotics in human health. Among many important functions, these beneficial bacteria help to mature our immune system which makes us more robust in terms of susceptibility to infectious diseases as well as allergies. Probiotics also are important to prevent overgrowth of fungus or other pathogenic organisms.

Rather than killing yeast, probiotics actually attach themselves to the lining of the intestines to prevent candida from invading the mucous membrane. These good bugs also create a more acidic (hence the name "acidophilus") environment which also wards off the yeast, which prefers an alkaline surrounding.

The other reason yeast overgrowth is so common in Australia and the US is that these nations are addicted to sugar and simple carbohydrates-the perfect fuel for yeast. Once candida has a foot in the door and continues to be fed on these foods, it starts proliferating exponentially. The surface area of your gut is the size of half a tennis court-imagine that surface being attacked by a microscopic organism!

In addition to your gut, any place where it's moist and warm is a potential yeast breeding ground…sinuses, vaginal tract, throat, and anus are all possibilities. A recent article from Mayo Clinic states that over 90% of recurrent sinusitis is caused by fungus! Frequent antibiotic use therefore only worsens the situation in the long run.

Besides sinus and gut problems, yeast can cause many other symptoms: fatigue, "brain fog," wandering aches and pains, allergies, rashes, gas and bloating, diarrhea or constipation, depression and/or anxiety, and many more.

So what can be done? 1) Stop feeding the yeast: avoid sugar (including natural sugars), white flour and many other wheat products, dairy (contains lactose-a milk sugar), and alcohol. 2) Kill the yeast with natural antifungals. 3) Reestablish normal flora: take a good quality lactobacillus and bifidobacterium. 4) Improve the immunity of the Gut 5) Heal inflammation and improve digestion

The key to eliminating candida is patience! It takes time to clean up that tennis court! On average it takes about 3 months to feel much improved-but it takes 6 months to two years to eradicate the yeast!

The door of the tank can be left open while you're getting used to the process & a soft light may also be left on if you are not comfortable with total darkness. Rest assured you will feel perfectly comfortable.


The high salt concentration in the tank makes the water so dense it's like the DEAD SEA and anyone, no matter how heavy they are, will float. The salt content also keeps the water sterile, along with an automatic filtration cycle after each session.
