Managing Yeast Overgrowth – CAROLYN DEAN MD ND

To the great detriment of the health of our society, Candida albicans, a fungus living in our intestines that produces 180 chemical toxins that can be absorbed through the intestines into the blood, is running rampant in a large portion of the population – both men and women. It’s one of the many diseases of civilization – the culmination of the side effects of drug and food technology and the disservices of our stressful way of life. Additionally, the refining of sugar and wheat has its downside by creating a simple food source for yeast. The tremendous levels of stress hormones that flood our bodies daily, hourly, and every minute in our sped up world also make us prey to yeast.

Through self-evaluation you can decide for yourself if Candida albicans is, in fact, a culprit in your health situation. At that point you may choose to begin the glorious adventure of ridding your body of the yeasts that hide in the colon and reek havoc on the body.  In this weekly broadcast Dr. Carolyn Dean goes over the causes and symptoms of yeast overgrowth as well as her recommendations for how to restore the body to its original healthy state.

WholeApproach® Protocol
What is the WholeApproach® Candida Protocol?
The WholeApproach® Protocol is a five-phase natural product protocol that has been successfully used at the East West Clinic in Minnesota for the treatment of Candidiasis (a systemic yeast overgrowth also known as CRC – Candida Related Complex). You can read about the WholeApproach® Protocol on this web site and in more detail in the book, “Conquering Yeast Infections, the Non-Drug Solution for Men and Women” by S. Colet Lahoz (Director of the East West Clinic). The WholeApproach® Protocol is based on the core program developed by Andrew Gutauskus, a Canadian Pharmacist and CEO of Attogram Corporation. All products listed below are available in the WholeApproach® Store <> .

The first Phase of the Protocol
The first two phases of the protocol utilize a colon cleansing drink that starts treating the candida where it originates, in the colon. The drink consists of three products that are described below. Because of its powerful absorptive and cleansing impact, it has been affectionately dubbed, the ‘Purge Drink’. This drink can be continued throughout all phases of the protocol.

Best results are when combined with an elimination diet – eliminate sugar, wheat, and dairy for five weeks while using the purge drink.

PHASE I – First five weeks to three months: The ‘Purge Drink’ is made up of the combination of  1-2 teaspoons of liquid Bentonite, 1 teaspoon of Psyllium husk & seed blend, 8 oz of water and 1 tbs of Caproyl (liquid suspended caprylic acid). Combine these ingredients in room temperature water, drink quickly and then follow up with another 8 oz of water. It is recommended that you drink the purge drink in the morning on an empty stomach one hour before eating and can also be used again one hour before bedtime. The Attogram Psyllium Husk and Seed Blend is smooth mixing, high quality, contaminant-free psyllium product. When mixed with the Bentonite liquid it is an important support during the initial colon cleanse because it soaks up mycotoxins that are produced as the yeast and fungus are killed off. This results in a much more comfortable cleanse with the minimum die off.

Per Dr. Dean – use the purge drink and elimination diet for two weeks – then take a week off of the purge drink and just follow the elimination diet – add the purge drink back in for two more weeks and at the end of the fifth week evaluate your results by gradually adding small amounts of your regular foods into your diet and see how your body responds.

  1. I’ve ordered your reset program but the ReAlign gives me a weird rash every time. What’s in there that would be causing this?

  2. I would like to try the yeast detox protocol but every time I go to the Whole Approach website it says they are out of the products for the detox. Can I get the products somewhere else?


    • Hi, Tina – thanks for letting us know about the back order issue with Whole Approach. You may be able to get a similar type of product – meaning a psyllium husk, a bentonite clay or similar clay product as well as a type of caproyl at your local health food store but I can’t promise they will be of the same quality. It seems they may be back in stock in a week or so – not sure what else to suggest ): GINNEY

  3. Hello and thank you for all the info! I’m sort of knew to this blog/radio and have been taking the Remag for 2 months. I have battled with candida & parasites for years and am going to try the Whole Approach Protocol. My question is…Should I keep taking the Remag while going through the protocol and if so, will it help if I added Rna drops? Thank you!

    • Hello, Lynn – a word of caution – the Whole Approach folks seem to be on backorder these days. You may be able to get a similar type of product – meaning a psyllium husk, a bentonite clay or similar clay product as well as a type of caproyl at your local health food store but I can’t promise they will be of the same quality. In response to the ReMag question – yes, and absolutely! The ReMag is essential for 700 enzyme functions, ATP production and protein metabolism – all very important to the body!

      • Thank you, Ginney, for the info! I just ordered a sample bottle of your RnA drops along with another bottle of ReMag yesterday and I just got an email saying they have arrived at my post office! I don’t know how you did that, but I am so happy! I also ordered Organic India Psyllium husk through Thrive Market yesterday to add to the Living Clay bentonite that I’m already taking. I’m having a problem finding a similar type of caprol though. I am wondering why not just eat a TBSP or 2 of coconut oil with the cleanse? Any thoughts on that? Again, THANK YOU!!!

  4. I am getting the completeness package now, I will need some personal help Ginney, with the steps. I am trying to quit smoking and eating on a whole food diet. One time I tried this I ended up in the hospital so being that I only can rely on my thinking, no doctor’s will recommend me to do this program, I need some directives. I am reading the 1 and 2 books on Invisible minerals.
    Thank you for the online blog and efforts you have so earnestly have taken to help so many!

  5. Hi, Erin – we will help you and for sure you can call and talk with Dr. Dean on Monday – did you figure out that if you call 602-666-6027 that is the way to listen to the show and talk with her as well?
