Dr. Vibhuti Rana, PhD says... The information in this article regarding the medical implications of systemic yeast infections is medically correct.
The diseases and problems of systemic yeast infections can be quite diverse as well as life threatening. The reason for this is- there are many different fungi that you can possibly get from foods, the environment, and the overgrowth of Candida. These fungi release over 100 known mycotoxins (poisons) into the body. The mycotoxins can affect different parts of the body in seemingly unrelated ways. For example, one person may get adult acne, the next arthritis, and another person heart disease. All these diseases may be caused by fungi and their mycotoxins.
Systemic yeast infections are usually commonly caused by Candida albicans or Candida tropicalis from intestinal overgrowth, though many other common fungi can cause or mimic the same symptoms of these diseases and conditions.
It can also be caused from airborne fungal spores such as Aspergillus, a fungus that is very common in rural and urban communities. People can be exposed in the workplace and become home to enormous numbers of these airborne fungi that cause many respiratory infections and common allergies every year.
It is not that systemic yeast infection and fungal diseases suffer from a shortage of scientific knowledge. But strangely, the twentieth century has very little knowledge of them. In the Bible, under Leviticus 14 in verses 34 and 35, the talk of fungus and fungi causing disease is nothing new.
Dr. Lida Mattman, a fungus expert with Wayne State University, is asked the question in her excellent book Stealth Pathogens, "Are fungi in blood smears overlooked because they are confused with blood cells?" Her answer is a resounding "YES".
Dr. M. G. Rinaldi says, "Given the right immuno-compromised host, virtually any fungus can kill a human being."
The book “Clinical Mycology” by C. C. Kibbler, published in 1995, is a compilation of research reports from 18 prominent physicians from universities such as Duke, Stanford, Texas, and others. They talk about the dangers of systemic yeast infection, Candida, other fungi, and their related diseases. The book chapters include connections of fungal infections to Bone and Joint, Cardiovascular System, Dermatology, Central Nervous System, Gastrointestinal Tract, Ear, Nose and Throat, Respiratory System, and even Ophthalmology. You would think that every doctor in the country would be aware of the risks of yeast and fungus as a cause of many modern diseases. Sadly, this is not true.
In 1963, Dr. Harold T. Hyman published in “The Complete Home Medical Encyclopedia” that one half of the US population had suffered from an "unrecognized yeast infection or fungal disorder" at one time or another in their lives.
Doug A. Kaufman, with over 30 years of research on fungi and human health, asks these very important questions, "Has medical science really progressed since 1963? Or are 125,000,000 Americans still suffering from unrecognized fungal disorders?"
Some of the diseases a systemic yeast infection can cause are:
Many of these diseases are of an "unknown" cause? But, when treated with the Diet and a few supplements, they often miraculously go away. Or at least come under control so the person affected can regain some kind of healthy life.
Below is a list of systemic yeast infection reports you can review. You can also learn about Invasive Candidiasis at the CDC website. I would read Crystal and Jakobs story first so you really understand just how serious these yeast infections can become.
There have been many cases of people that suffer from migraine headaches, high cholesterol, arthritis, respiratory diseases, skin diseases, and others that have not been proven to be linked to fungi or other yeast infections. But these people have gone on the candida diet and taken the necessary antifungal herbs and have had their disease simply go away.
It is very interesting to me all the diverse diseases are caused by systemic Candida yeast infection and fungi. During my research on these diseases and fungus it all really started making a lot of sense. But also what was amazing is the wide range of diseases and the way it affects all of us differently.
Today heart disease and cancer run rampant, diabetes is turning into an epidemic, and a whole host of new diseases are being discovered every day. These diseases at the turn of the last century were relatively unknown, but so were the processed foods and antibiotics.
We all need to get back to a healthy diet like what the body was designed to run on and did in fact run on for millions of years. If we don't, our future will not be very bright to say the least.
The above mentioned information regarding the implications of systemic yeast infections is correct.
Liew and Md. Rezwan from Dept of Nutrition and Dietetics, Universiti Putra Malaysia affirm that mycotoxins cause turbulences in the gut microbiota, and largely affect the health of an individual. The main mycotoxins discussed in terms of host health and mycotoxicoses are trichothecenes, zearalenone, fumonisins, ochratoxins, and aflatoxins. (1) Aflatoxins, for instance, have been reported to cause carcinogenesis and hepatotoxicity in animals as well as humans.
Studies have revealed that exposure to the mycotoxins mostly happens upon ingestion. However, it may also occur by the dermal and inhalation routes. The conditions associated with mycotoxicoses very often remain undiagnosed by medical professionals, except when large numbers of subjects are participating. (2) A review published in 2016 states that mycotoxins are found in several food items like cereals, processed flour, legumes, smoked-dried fish/meat. (3)
Systemic candidiasis caused by C. albicans, affects the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), abdomen, cardiovascular machinery, kidneys, liver, bones, muscles and joints, spleen, and/or eyes. (4) According to a book chapter, fungal species may promote an immune response, resulting in allergies. Exposure to the fungi in the diet or from the environment may cause allergy with much higher magnitude upon re-exposure. For example, Aspergillus spp., a filamentous fungus exposed mainly from leaves, corresponds to a potent, common allergen, leading to asthma and other hypersensitivity issues. (5) Incorporating a healthy diet and supplementation may substantially help in obtaining some relief from the infection symptoms.

If you're reading this while researching Candida albicans, as I was when I found Dan & Yeast Infection Advisor, *you are in the right place.*
I have experienced rapid improvement in my candida symptoms while on Dan's Biofase supplement. I powered through the first bottle very quickly and have re-ordered while continuing to absorb as much information from this densely packed website as possible.
Dan has been
very kind and communicative with questions that have come up and
encourages you to do whatever you need, including taking supplements he
does not sell or profit from, in order to heal. I think he's the real
deal and enjoy working with him.
I am on my way to healing from this scourge of an experience and will continue to take Biofase, Profase and Microfase until I do. While I have seen a dramatic improvement I know I have to remain focused and dedicated to the process in order to completely heal. I anticipate being on these for a year, more or less, and I am happy to do it.
As Dan recommends, I am also taking a daily dose of colostrum and looking into other supplements to support the Biofase. The Biofase, good nutrition, exercise and rest are the foundational components to clearing this from my body and being physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually free.
Thank you, Dan!
My name is James. I have suffered from severe systemic Candida for over 15 years. It has been by far the most difficult period of my life. Daily pain, terrible fatigue, and frequent bouts of totally debilitating agony in my body - just waking up and feeling as if I'd been poisoned for no discernible reason. As in the type of crippling and chronic suffering that causes one to not only lose a lot of work time and leisure time in constant recovery, but also just destroys the quality of your life in every regard. Horrible.
I searched the web for years (literally) gathering information. I read several books. There is quite a large amount of conflicting information out there about candida. And many outright lies. Fast forward to last year (2013). FINALLY, MERCIFULLY, I found my way to your website and your honest, solid, scientifically backed up information and research into this hideous, invasive, parasitic entity known as candida yeast, which by the way has NO business being in the human diet and is NOT supposed to be a food ingredient.
In any case, I tried my first bottle of Biofase last year, and used it in conjunction with your four day anti fungal rotation using cinnamon oil, oregano oil, SF-22, GSE and candidate (I made my own version of this from dry herbs and took huge doses). Within a few days of beginning this regimen, I felt genuine improvement for the very first time in over ten years of actively trying to beat this disease.
By the time I got to my second bottle, and my second rotation of the anti fungals, I was a totally new person. Not completely healed, but WELL on the way. As in, an occasional, very infrequent bout of the crippling pain and feeling poisoned. By the way I also detox very regularly with herbs and other natural means.
Fast forward again to 2014. I have been using Candex along with Serrapeptase (sold separately) for several months now, as I had been too busy and was also offline for many months, so I was using those two products rather than Biofase. They do work fairly well together, but I can attest to the fact that Biofase is the Best. It's all in one product, not two, and it simply, flat out WORKS BEAUTIFULLY.
I have found your statements that the Biofase enzymes eat up all the unwanted matter and yeast components, and then taking CP-1 afterward, that the probiotics clean up the mess, to be 100% accurate and true. That is precisely the experience I am having.
And, as a huge bonus, I have found that these enzymes, particularly serrapeptase, are IMMENSELY beneficial for helping me to heal joint pain and long standing, chronic muscle tissue knotting and scar tissue.
So for me, I'll continue to take these wonderful enzymes long after I am totally free of candida. I can't say that I feel I am completely free yet, but I am getting very close. I continue to do the anti fungal rotations using the above protocols along with other anti fungals that I use, including clove oil, black walnut tincture, wormwood dry herbs and others. I still occasionally have the bouts of pain and suffering for no explicable reason, but they are very infrequent now.
Dan, there can be NO doubt. These enzymes, and the knowledge these pages of yours have provided, have literally saved my life.
Bless you and Thank you my Friend.
I had systemic candida as a result of antibiotics for chronic sinus
infections. I had been on a candida diet for 8 weeks, but wanted to ensure that the problem did not recur, as in so many other cases I'd read about. I took your Biofase daily, building up to 4 pills a day, and I noticed a significant difference. Less bloating almost immediately and over time, less reflux. I just recommended the product to a friend T.M. from Louisville KY and he placed his order today! I'm going to order another round to have on hand for periodic maintenance and cleansing. Thanks again for making such a well designed product!
