Candida Treatment That Works – Iodine
Almost everyone, yes everyone is suffering from Candida overgrowth. Some of us experience more troublesome candida symptoms than others, but believe me, candida albicans is way more common in humans than doctors and allopaths would have you believe.
And if you are like a lot of people I know, you have followed every diet such as the low carb diet or sugar-free or grain free diet, that you can think of, avoided foods to the point where you are reduced to eating just a handful of things, but your candida still flares from time to time for no apparent reason at all.
And yes, you have tried all the natural supplements, antifungals like coconut oil, probiotics, tea tree oil and other essential oils, and anti-parasitic supplements out there.You have tried the clays and the diatomaceous earth and clean, healthy food, but the candida problem persists.
Could the solution be a simple and inexpensive substance that has been hiding right in front of you? I am talking about iodine, something all of us are familiar with and have used on cuts and bruises most of our lives.
Candida Albicans Susceptibility To Four Disinfectants – Research
This amazing research on how effective iodine and other disinfectants were in killing candida albicans was conducted by Waltimo TM1, Orstavik D, Sirén EK, Haapasalo MP.
They tested the effect of 4 different disinfectants (iodine potassium iodide, chlorhexidine acetate, sodium hypochlorite and calcium hydroxide) separately on Candida Albicans, as well as differnet combinations of disinfectants. Their finding are very interesting:
- Iodine (2%) potassium iodide (4%) killed all yeast cells within 30 s, yes 30 seconds! Ditto for Sodium hypochlorite (5% and 0.5%).
- Chlorhexidine acetate (0.5%) showed complete killing after 5 min.
- C. albicans cells were highly resistant to calcium hydroxide
How To Use Iodine
It is key to remember that while iodine can help with candida albicans and candida overgrowth, iodine is also a very powerful nutrient especially for the thyroid and other glands in our body. Too much iodine can mess with your thyroid levels, and you certainly don’t want that. Your best bet will be to find yourself a good naturopathic doctor who will help you figure out the right dose for you, as well as advise you how long to continue with iodine.
