What is Candida? What should I do about it?

Did you know that 1 in 3 American's have Candida issues in their bodies? It all begins in the gutt, and then travels to all places in the body...yuck!

Candida Albicans are a natural strain of bacteria that lives in our bowels, but when allowed to grow unchecked can cause havoc on our immune system and show up as a myriad of symptoms such as allergies, rashes, pain, stomach upset, inflammation, reactions to smells, headaches, etc. We see it in the form of fungus, infection, epidermal irritations, and thrush; there are oral forms, vaginal forms, blood forms, and intestinal forms.
The best way to treat an overgrowth of Candida is to cleanse with an essential oils blend, clean up the diet, get plenty of sunshine and fresh air, and exercise, and repopulate the lower intestine with good bacteria by using a probiotic. Refrain from consuming anything with sugar, mold or fungus, as Candida Albicans is a yeast and will feed off of these foods.

Initially, as you proceed with the cleanse it will create a "die off" effect and you will feel worse for a small period of time, while the Candida is expelled. Most suggest taking the cleansing blend for two weeks on and then off for one week as you take a probiotic. Then repeat the cycle, as needed, until Candida symptoms are gone. Following this, for long term maintenance, continue with a good diet, exercise, and a monthly cleanse (2 weeks of the cleansing blend and 1 week of probiotics).
Avoid using antibiotics, birth control, and foods that are high in sugar or yeast as much as possible.
Often people complain of feeling badly or experience rash or other "die off" symptoms. It is not unusual to experience die off symptoms as your body purges the Candida. Consider a diet of raw foods during your cleanse, and drink LOTS of lemon water.

 doTerra offers two products that make this much easier. GX Assist, a pre-prepared cleansing essential oil blend of oregano, melaleuca, lemon, lemongrass, peppermint, and thyme in a capsule form. It is recommended to use it monthly by taking 1 to 3 capsule daily for 10 days. Follow this with PB Assist, a probiotic formula to promote healthy digestive function in a time release bead, and should be taken daily for 5 days after the GX Assist 10 day cycle.

As mentioned elsewhere as the candida is expelled various "die off" symptoms may occur. Feeling badly, rashes, changes in bowel routines, etc. Varying from 1 to 3 capsules can modify these symptoms to a comfortable level.

Of course you may prepare your own blend. Dr. Hill recommends a formula of 1 drop oregano, 2 drops melaleuca and 3-5 drops lemon taken in a 00 size capsule. The lemon will eventually melt the capsule so it's good to only make a couple days worth - at a time. One easy method is to pre-mix the appropriate blend in a 2 oz bottle with a dripper lid then drill 00 capsule size holes about 1/4 inch deep into a short block of wood. Open capsules can be placed in the holes of the 2X4 and easily filed with 6-8 drops of the mixture. We have found from our experience this is more expensive (and certainly less convenient) that using the pre-prepared GX Assist.

Cancer Protocol with Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils (CPTG)

The following information began with Nicole Stevens, MS. The original research was her dissertation on
Therapeutic-grade essential oils and their response in the body to cancer.
We know that chemotherapy is highly toxic and kills healthy cells along with the cancerous cells. According to the research done by Nicole Stevens, MS, it is not unusual for cancer therapies to kill a large percentage of good cells along with the bad. This is why we see the signs of hair loss, yellow eyes, grayed hair, nausea, fatigue, etc, from patients on chemotherapy. With therapeutic-grade essential oils the cell death count is less than 25 cells. Nicole tested repeatedly and has not yet found a toxicity level, even at extremely high concentrations. Dr. Jaime Matta (Ponce School of Medicine, Ponce, Puerto Rico) found Frankincense to be very effective against even chemotherapy-resistant strains of breast cancer. The National Institute of Health research shows effectiveness against bladder cancer. Google Frankincense cancer , 42 papers published, watch for the publication of this research. There are also other oils which are found to be anti-tumoral; some of them also encourage the re-growth of healthy cells. Among them are Sandalwood, Thyme, Lavender, and Clove. Understanding the costliness of pure Frankincense and Sandalwood oils (both require so much time and care to distill and retain their therapeutic action that they are commonly extracted using solvents or not distilled for the full amount of time), it is exciting to learn that other, less expensive oils may be combined with Frankincense & Sandalwood and actually increase the effectiveness of a cancer treatment. Combined with dōTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality Trio, (these are) powerful tools for healing!

This protocol is beginning to be used on a larger scale, by doctors in private practice and in US
hospitals at this time.
I was taught to combine it with the Spinal Technique, daily if possible, and lots of good water to drink.
One 00 capsule Frankincense, One 00 capsule Sandalwood, One 00 capsule Lavender morning and evening for 3 days.
Frankincense, Sandalwood and Lavender topically morning and evening for those same 3 days.

One 00 capsule Frankincense, One 00 capsule Sandalwood, One 00 capsule Wild Orange morning and evening for 3 days. Frankincense, Sandalwood and Wild Orange topically morning and evening for those same 3 days.

One 00 capsule Frankincense, One 00 capsule Sandalwood, One 00 capsule Lemon… (Repeat process)

One 00 capsule Frankincense, One 00 capsule Sandalwood, One 00 capsule Thyme… (Repeat process)

One 00 capsule Frankincense, One 00 capsule Sandalwood, One 00 capsule Clove… (Repeat process)
The oils may be rotated as often as necessary.


I am not a doctor, but I do work with doctors whom I trust, and this is what they would do for their family.
I have shared this protocol with family members and friends with tremendous success when the need has arisen.
SPINAL THERAPY: Balance, Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Wintergreen, Marjoram, Cypress, Peppermint.
(Often this therapy is all that is needed to remove pain, otherwise use formula(s) below)

PAIN FORMULA as needed: White Fir and Frankincense applied topically.

PAIN FORMULA as needed: In a capsule for internal consumption: 12 drops Wintergreen, 8 drops Vetiver, 8 drops Helichrysum
PAIN FORMULA as needed: For nerve-type pain, 1/3 00 capsule Vetiver, 1/3 Peppermint, 1/3 Deep Blue topically and internally.
Some may work better for you than others.
The trick with any treatment is finding what works best for your biochemically unique system.
You will not find concentrations like those in dōTERRA oils anywhere else.” ---Nicole Stevens

where to purchase these CPTG Essential Oils:
(option for purchasing at wholesale or retail)

Kangen Water (Alkaline water) is what I recommend.
