Now, when you’ve got yourself one hell of a problem: a long-standing infection that’s resisted antibiotics, your gut is all kinds of messed up, and you’re basically wondering how much battery acid it would take to kill this thing, you need to pull out all the stops, go full bore, shock and awe, balls to the wall.
Pay close attention people, because this is one of those things where, if you slack off on something, or disregard something because you think it’s not that important, it won’t fully work..and you’ll be left with a stronger infection because only the strong survived what you tried to do.
Do I have your attention?
What you need to do is go to your nearest drugstore/Wal-Mart (because it’s stupid expensive on Amazon, and about $1 at a local store) and buy:
- Three 10 oz bottles of magnesium citrate
At the grocery store, get:
- 5 heads of the freshest garlic they have, preferably Roja garlic (purple skins, huge cloves. NO elephant garlic: that’s not garlic, it’s a leek)
- Ground cinnamon, and ginger: the latter can be the fresh root or the powder, use 2-3x the amount when it’s fresh (I prefer cinnamon tea: there’s one very rare kind of UTI bacteria that responds negatively to ginger, but it’s helpful against all others)
- Cayenne pepper
- Horseradish root (This can be taken in place of raw garlic: finely grate 1 tsp worth and use that in place of 1 garlic clove, pinching the grated bits together into a clump and swallowing with baking soda water. Trust me on that one.)
On Amazon, buy:
- Activated charcoal: either this, or this
- pau d’arco (Sorry, but if you’re pregnant, potentially pregnant, or breastfeeding, this is a “No, no”. It’s all kinds of too strong for babies.)
- UTI tests (no, you won’t need them all, but they’re accurate, inexpensive, and informative)
On Vitacost, buy:
What you’re going to do is implement Phase I until you have everything, and then you’re going to take a few days to stay home and slaughter this infection.
Start by eating an early dinner the night before, when you’ve received everything in the mail, and having nothing but cinnamon tea/baking soda water until bedtime. Set an alarm to wake you a couple hours earlier than normal, and go to bed.
When you’re awakened for your first day of Boot Camp, drink a bottle of that magnesium citrate, and go back to bed. When you wake up, drink another bottle. (If you have a particularly sensitive gut, or you’re older, scroll to the bottom of the page for an alternate method to prep for the charcoal cleanse.)
Don’t eat anything: just drink some lemon water and wait. You can do some cardio exercises to get the blood flowing: it speeds peristalsis. By lunchtime, if not sooner, things should start moving. If not, drink the third bottle and call someone to bring you some zinc oxide diaper rash cream: you’ll need it. While you’re waiting, put bottled water and charcoal in the bathroom, where you can reach it easily. Also, a magazine, book, your phone…you get my drift.
When you’re running loose and fast, take 3500 mg of charcoal (a heaping half teaspoon) and 16 oz water. Wait an hour, and repeat that dose, but you can drink 12 oz water this time. Wait an hour, and repeat, the same as last time. You are now done with charcoal, unless you have an exceptionally severe Candida problem, complete with a tendency to constipation. Drink another 12-16 oz water an hour after the last dose.
Two hours after your third dose of charcoal, take 3 OLE and 3 pau d’arco, with something like a piece of toast with unsweetened almond butter. No more.
Wait an hour, and eat a meal. No red meat, no eggs, no tomatoes, no sugar, no caffeine: something simple and alkaline-forming, from the left side of the chart I linked in the pH connection post.
Take one fat clove of raw garlic, finely minced, pieces swallowed with a glass of half-strength baking soda water (1/4 tsp to 8 oz water), mid-meal.
Take 1/4 tsp, or 1250 mg cayenne pepper (If you don’t think your system can handle that much, or if it makes your urethra uncomfortable, take doses half that size).
Drink a glass of cinnamon or ginger tea, 20 minutes before eating (1 tsp cinnamon/ginger powder to 8 oz hot water: stir and steep for 20 minutes, drink without stirring and leave the dregs.).
Wait 2 hours after that meal, and take 3 OLE and 3 pau d’arco again.
Repeat for the rest of the day, taking the tea before and the garlic and cayenne with food, and the OLE and pau d’arco with nothing but water, 2 hours after eating.
Take a bedtime dose of 2 OLE/pau d’arco each, if your 3/3 dose 2 hours after dinner was several hours before you’re ready to sleep.
At bedtime, put about 1000 mg (or a heaping 1/8 tsp) charcoal in the bowl of a soup spoon, and add a few drops of water to make a thick, wet paste the consistency of Elmer’s glue, and with the tip of a finger put that glob of wet charcoal right on your urethra (wear a liner), and go to bed. If you have to pee in the night, reapply. If it feels tingly and makes you pee, it’s drawing pathogens out of your urethra. Do that every night for 5 nights.
If you have any Candida die-off symptoms that day after the cleanse, you can repeat what you did the first morning, waking early and taking 1 bottle of magnesium citrate. It won’t take near so long to work, this time, and it won’t have much to clear out. Take 2 doses of charcoal, the same dose size and timing as before, and then resume the OLE/pau d’arco/garlic as before, take 4 OLE and 4 pau d’arco, today.
Take the first dose of OLE/pau d’arco with a small snack, then take garlic with food and the rest of the OLE/ pau d’arco doses with water. Repeat the same routine for the rest of the day as the day before, with 4/4 doses today.
The rest of your treatment should look like:
Waking: tea, then food, cayenne, and a huge minced garlic clove
2 hours later: 4 OLE, 4 pau d’arco (an alternative to the pau d’arco is oregano oil, but take the latter with your food, like you do with garlic)
Lunch: tea before, fat clove of minced garlic, and cayenne with food
2 hours later: 4 OLE, 4 pau d’arco
Dinner: you know the drill
2 hours later: you know the drill
Bedtime: cup of tea and 4 OLE
(Other than the water you drink to flush charcoal through your system, you should be drinking no more than 8 oz per waking hour, so you don’t over-hydrate. If you have an 8 oz cup of tea, that’s your water for that hour.)
You’re going to do that religiously for 4-5 days: test first thing every morning and make sure the test is not only clear, but that it STAYS clear: leave it out and watch it.
- Keep your bladder emptied every 60-90 minutes, as long as you’re awake.
- Drink 8 oz alkaline water once an hour when you’re not taking something, so you’re drinking a glass in between eating and taking the OLE/pau d’arco/oregano oil. (Alkaline water: 1/4 tsp soda in 8 oz water, or a big squeeze of lemon juice)
- Eat lightly, of only alkaline-forming foods. Keep starches to a bare minimum.
- Start taking L-glutamine and probiotics according to the package instructions, as soon as the charcoal portion of the treatment is finished.
- Consume sugar/fruit/caffeine/red meat/alcohol.
- Take probiotics and raw garlic at the same time.
- Have sex. Bad, very bad. No, no! I know you feel great and it’s been a while, and you’ve lost weight and you look awesome, but NO. Down, girl!
When you’ve had 5 days of clear tests, and those pads never turn color no matter how long you leave them out, you can drop to 2 pau d’arco and 4 OLE per dose, 1 clove of minced garlic per day, and one evening cup of tea.
Take that for another 3 days, then drop down to 2 OLE per dose, and stop the pau d’arco and save it for when you and the mister Do the Deed.
Stay on 2 OLE 4x a day for as long as your paranoia wants you to, it’s totally non-toxic, and when you enjoy the carnal relations, take a pau d’arco or oregano oil capsule per OLE dose for the next 2 days.
Ideally, you drop down gradually to two OLE per day as health maintenance, to prevent colds and such. Take the whole bottle of L-glutamine and the probiotics, and to maintain your svelte new figure, try to stay on a bladder-happy diet, eating mostly alkaline-forming foods and avoiding sugar.
You can now have everything in moderation, because you no longer have any latent bacterial or fungal infections lurking in ambuscade.
It’s a new day dawning on a new you. Congratulations. 🙂
Alternate charcoal cleanse prep for the Delicate Flower…. 😉
Buy some unsweetened whey protein and veggie smoothie drinks (No tomato ones! Just alkaline veggie juices), and take a day just drinking those and cinnamon tea and lemon water..and take a spoonful of milk of magnesia in between meal times, mid-morning, mid-afternoon, and an hour after your dinner drink. If you aren’t moving by early evening, take more magnesium! You should see results well before the end of the day: the goal is to empty out enough to take one big dose of charcoal before sleeping the sleep of the just that night. Set an alarm to wake you 2 hours early, take the dose of charcoal you left on the nightstand with a 16 oz bottle of water, and go back to sleep. On waking, either take another dose of charcoal because you’re hardcore like that, or have a little breakfast and start the protocol.
