What is Candida?
Candida is a dimorphic organism, meaning
it can exist in two shapes and forms simultaneously. One form is a
yeast-like state that is a non-invasive, sugar-fermenting organism. The
other is a fungal form that produces very long root-like structures,
called rhizoids, that can penetrate the mucosa and is invasive.
What makes Candida bad?
Candida, in its yeast form is beneficial. We all have this form of candida in our bodies. The candida population should be low and
indiscernible (no overt symptoms or cloudy saliva). “Friendly” bacteria
and a healthy immune system prevent this yeast from becoming an
infectious fungus. Click here for a simple
It is when our bodies lose their proper immune
protection, or the intestinal pH is altered unfavorably,
that candida can change from the yeast form to the
fungal form. When this happens we get candida
It has been unofficially estimated that a startling 80% of the population
may have candidiasis that is out of control!

Candida (candida albicans) is one of the most difficult organisms
to remove from your body once it becomes systemic. When our bodies lose their
proper immune protection, candida “morphs” from being a beneficial yeast
in our intestinal track into a harmful fungus. In its fungal form it develops rhizoids (long
root-like structures) that are invasive and penetrate the mucosa.
this happens, the boundary between our intestinal tract and the rest of
our circulatory system breaks down, and this allows partially digested
proteins to travel into the bloodstream where they assault our immune
is the condition known as having "systemic candida."
What causes the change from good to bad?
There are many theories. Most naturopaths concur that the conversion
happens due to some sort of attack on our immune systems—either
prolonged antibiotic use, taking steroids or oral contraceptives on a
regular basis, or a high sugar diet. It could be a combination of these.
It is also conjectured that candida increases its numbers during periods
of stress and lowered immune states.
What are the symptoms of a candida infestation?
Typical candida symptoms may include jock itch, depression, dry, itchy,
flaky skin, anxiety, recurring irritability or mood swings, heartburn,
indigestion, lethargy, food and environmental allergies, joint soreness,
chest pain, acne or other skin problems, migraine headaches, recurring
cystitis/vaginal infections, premenstrual tension, and menstrual
How does ThreeLac™
and FiveLac™ help?
ThreeLac™'s role is to assist in stopping candida from breaking down
the intestinal mucosa and allow the
intestinal tract to resume a healthy state. This is when supporting your
body with full oxygenation and proper nutrition becomes vitally important.
Once your intestinal tract is healthy and pH balanced, the oxygenated cells
and organic trace elements go to work to rid your body of toxins, including
cleansing undigested proteins and fungal candida. Without healing the
intestinal tract, trying to rid your body of candida is usually futile.
However, once your intestinal tract no longer allows proteins and fungal
candida into the bloodstream on an ongoing basis, your body will be better
able to properly use the daily support you provide.
Systemic candida will be more difficult to eradicate than intestinal
candida. Adding LHB along with
Coral Complete or
Mega Minerals Plus and
Oxygen Elements Max may be necessary.
As its name implies, ThreeLac™
contains three forms of spore-forming lactic acid
bacteria (FiveLac™ has five). These live microorganisms purge your intestinal tract of
the parasitic, fungal form of candida. At the same time, ThreeLac™ helps
to balance the pH levels in our bodies.
The secret behind ThreeLac’s and FiveLac's effectiveness is the micro-encapsulation
process that gets the candida-fighting live bacteria safely past the
acidic environment in the stomach. These oxygen-friendly bacteria go to
work “dining” on anaerobic problem organisms that you don’t want.
If you have being taking Oxygen Elements
Max then your body has a head start? You have already created a rich oxygen environment that ThreeLac™
