Dog ear infections? Dog skin allergies, issues, rashes, bumps or redness? It may be time for a dog yeast infection treatment called a candida cleanse.
Why? First of all Candida is a yeast which is a fungus.
It's misdiagnosed often and your dog may have been given antibiotics for ear infections or antibiotics for skin problems similar to those things I've described above.
The problem is antibiotics make yeast worse instead of better.
The next thing is taking your dog to a specialist to find out what his "allergy" is.
Oops, this may be a wrong assumption.
It doesn't happen overnight. It's a condition of imbalance. All bodies have a certain amount of yeast in the gut. That's normal. Friendly bacteria keeps it at the right level.
BUT when friendly
bacteria in the gut is killed by antibiotics and other drugs, there is
nothing to stop or control yeast growth. Certain foods and treats impact
the growth of yeast as well.
Now here is how we unknowingly provide a continuous supply of gourmet food for the yeast.
You see, all types of yeast feed on starches. Sugar is what most people think of but here are some that may surprise you.
Fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, peas, potatoes, sweet potatoes and other unnecessary ingredients such as tapioca in dog food are all converted into sugar, that dream buffet for yeast.
Eventually we get what I call the Candida Monster. I know because it has visited yours truly. And I have rarely been on antibiotics but my gut gets imbalanced anyway.
Think of it like this picture which is simply yeast, sugar and water.
If you've ever made bread from scratch using yeast and sugar, you may have seen the yeast bubbling as it gobbles the sugar. The creation of gas makes bread rise but inside us or our dogs it can ruin digestion and cause all those problems I mentioned. Yuck!
First I'll tell you what they are. Then I'll explain what they do. Of course I only promote Natures Sunshine products for humans because it's the best.
Probiotic Eleven - ( Stock # 1510-1 )
I recommended this product to repopulate the intestinal tract with 11 strains of live beneficial microorganism to regain balance. These beneficial organisms promote gut health and build strong immune function as they reseed the intestinal tract. This will help to repair the inflamed intestinal lining and prevent the leakage of undigested proteins, toxins and fungus into the bloodstream.
Yeast/Fungal Detox - ( Stock # 508-9 )
This is a potent detoxification product formulated to inhibit the growth of unfriendly organisms and help restore balance. Excesses of yeast and fungus can compromise the immune, digestive and urinary systems.
Protease Plus - ( Stock # 1841-7 )
Here we have enzymes to give between meals so they may digest foreign proteins in the blood (yeast cell die off is considered protein). Undigested proteins have been linked to a variety of health concerns, including allergies. Often, these undigested proteins result in a false positive, when allergy testing. Again we are strengthening the immune system with this product.
Liver Cleanse Formula - ( Stock # 1010-3 )
The liver performs 500 functions in the body daily. It supports digestive functions by secreting bile for emulsification of fat, controls the metabolism of nutrients and serves as a reservoir for many nutrients and metabolites. The liver’s central position and involvement with many metabolic functions, make it susceptible to stressors. It's role in the processing of drugs and other foreign substances is among its most difficult and stressful tasks.
This product strengthens the liver and thus the immune system as well.
NOTE: For Canadian orders please replace Liver Cleanse Formula with LIV-A ( Stock #1010-8) and place your order through Sandra King's NSP website in Canada.
Since yeast feeds on all forms of starch, think about what your dog's food contains. And his treats. If your canine family member is eating kibble or even canned food it's likely that the majority of it is made from starch.
I sincerely hope you will consider a raw food diet. Nearly all the people I've worked with have made the switch and every one of them were thrilled with the results. Many of them were really afraid to switch and most of them thought it would be too expensive but it isn't when you do it right.

PS - I'd like to thank several of my subscribers who emailed me. I was so focused on explaining the candida cleanse that I forgot to post the link where you can buy these things through me. (Bad business woman bangs head against wall.) Here it is:
