"CONQUERING YEAST INFECTIONS, THE NON-DRUG
I ask those who urge me to take medication
to wait at least until I have regained enough strength and health to enable
me to stand the effort and risk. Montaigne
From the unique book titled above: "The Development of Candida
albicans from a harmless fungus to a common cause of hospital-acquired
infectious disease is frightening. The medical community has
pursued advanced technology for sustaining life, including organ transplants,
artificial joints, long-term dialysis and chemotherapy. The techniques
used in these new technologies enable Candida albicans to
invade deep organs," says researcher/nurse practitioner, S. Colet
Lahoz. RN, LAc. (It likely is not necessary to be treated radically in
a hospital per se to acquire nosocomial-type pathogens. Many surgical
and evasive diagnostic procedures are now performed at out-patient medical
"Unfortunately, a disturbingly large number of patients die
with undiagnosed invasive Candida infections . . . Our advanced technology
for sustaining life support is predominantly responsible for creating
the current reaction of the organisms with the human host," reveals
the highly credible, prestigious New England Journal of Medicine. 15
Yet, in the book Lahoz reveals that the "unproven" stance on
PCC continues by the medical arena and governmental organizations "even
though results of more than 100 studies proving CRC have been presented
to them." (CRC, candida related complex, is the same as PCC.) The
above acknowledgment indicated that hospitals at least are certainly aware
of the peril to patients who are acquiring this fungus (plus deadly resistant
Then why the denial of PCC by medical and governmental practitioners and
organizations? A major reason lies in the fact that CRC is, as Lahoz declares,
"a side effect of modern medicine," i.e. resulting from prescriptions
for antibiotic, birth control pills, steroids, and invasive procedures.
Though many have reported to us the abuse and questioning of their sanity
when they mentioned the "C" word to their medical doctors, a
few physicians do treat CRC. Of course, they use drugs and the results
are fleeting in the instances of which I am aware.
After years of dealing PCC, I concluded that, in fact, no protocol for
PCC (natural or unnatural) will be lasting unless the habitat of candida
and other parasites-the lifetime accumulation of encrusted filth in the
colon- is cleansed. I saw that not only the systemic and superficial,
but the embedded microbes must be exposed to the killing modality of choice,
and the mucosa (including the vagina) health restored. I became clear
to me that probiotic implanting and a continued whole foods diet is crucial
for lasting effects.
Imagine my delight when I learned of the Lahoz four-pronged protocol including
all these principles! She has perfected and simplified this effectively
with certain supplements mixed together twice daily in eight ounces of
water. These are liquid bentonite, caprylic with oleic acids, powdered
probiotics (beneficial bacteria) and psyllium husks and seeds. (The inclusion
of phyllium seeds along with the husks is important to the success of
the program.) This regimen works! (For those without PCC, the colon cleanse
alone can do wonders for liver toxicity and overall wellness.)
Lahoz, also an acupuncturist, recommends that modality along with the
supplements and diet for the success of the program. Reviewed by Townsend
