Every year at this time, my thoughts turn to cooking emotional food to nourish my body as the weather gets cooler. This year, I have experimented with using extracts of lemon, orange, cinnamon, almond, mint, and vanilla that give puddings a sweet taste as well as an aroma that nourishes the soul without using any sugar.
One of my favorite puddings is Chia Lemon Poppyseed Pudding.
Simply mix 1 cup of Hemp milk with ¼ cup white chia seeds, 2 Tbsp lemon juice, 2 tsp lemon zest, 2 tbsp poppy seeds, and 1 tsp of lemon extract. Mix together is a jar and refrigerate overnight to enjoy the next day.
The other day, I baked a Sugar Pumpkin whole leaving the seeds inside to impart a nutty flavor into the flesh. I scooped out the seeds and laid them on a baking sheet to dry to eat later as they are high in zinc which is good for the immune system. Then I whipped the pumpkin flesh with a fork adding goat butter, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon & vanilla extracts. This delicious pumpkin puree was a warm, yet sweet nourishing treat.
The chia seeds create a healthy mucus for the intestines and pumpkin is high in Vitamin A, which is good for the eyes, but the lack of sugar in these naturally sweet treats reduces the fungal growth in the digestive system. Eliminating sugar and fruit sweeteners from our diets is so helpful for reducing fungal bacterias in our bodies but for those of you that wish to use stronger yet natural herbs, here is a list that help to destroy bacteria and fungus:
- ‘Garlic has powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and several scientific studies have found it to be as effective as the popular anti-fungal pharmaceutical drugs Ketoconazole and Nystatin in destroying candida albicans. One important difference between taking drugs like antibiotics and antifungals, and taking garlic, is that bacteria and fungi are not likely to develop a resistance to garlic.’
2.‘Caprylic Acid is a short-chain fatty acid derived from the coconut, which has been found to be a remarkably effective antifungal agent, especially in the control and maintenance of normal healthy micro-organisms in the digestive tract. Caprylic acid works best in conjunction with Undecylenic acid.’
3.‘Undecylenic Acid is a fatty acid that comes from the castor bean. It has proven to be the most effective antifungal agent and is the active ingredient in many over-the-counter antifungal preparations. The problem with this mono-unsaturated fatty acid is that it is sensitive to pH imbalances commonly found in those with Candida.’
4.‘Black Walnut extract was chosen due to its ability to kill a wide range of pathogens, including yeasts, bad bacteria, and is used for expelling worms and many different kinds of parasites that can affect people with Candida. Black walnut contains a chemical called juglone, and a study at the University of Mississippi (1999) found juglone to be as effective as commercially available antifungals such as zinc undecylenate and selenium sulfide. Black walnut extract also contains tannins that kill parasites.’
5.‘Pau d’arco has several compounds that have demonstrated strong anti-candida effects. Lapacho, the other name for this remarkable rainforest tree, has often singled out as one of the premier herbal solutions for Candida yeast infections and after many years of laboratory research by the mid-1970??¦s, the list of proven active ingredients in Pau d’arco that inhibit Candida and other fungi had grown to several dozen.’
6.‘Neem is not commonly found in Candida formulations. A 2011 Study published in the Brazilian Journal of Microbiology concluded that even at the lowest of concentrations, neem extract produced an excellent antifungal activity against a wide range of Candida, Aspergillus, and Microsporum yeast species. Neem is a tree from India that has been used for centuries to prevent many different kinds of infections in humans; it is being increasingly used in the West as a safe and highly effective insecticide and anti-parasitic.’
7.‘Berberine is a natural antibiotic chemical found in certain herbal medicines. It has been shown to possess excellent antimicrobial activity against a wide variety of microorganisms like candida albicans, e coli, staph aureus giardia, entamoeba histolytica, trichomonas vaginalis, leishmania donovani as well as several other well-known parasites and many different types of detrimental bacteria. Berberine supports the mucous membranes and has an immune-enhancing and cleansing effect on the mucosa of the throat, vagina, and digestive system, in addition to acting as a liver tonic and helping the body secrete bile. Studies of berberine have shown in particular that it markedly decreases the parasitic load and can rapidly improve the immune system’s profile.’
8.‘Cloves: A laboratory study in 2009 at the University of Porto, Portugal found that cloves have an active component called eugenol has proven to be one of the most effective antifungal agents yet discovered. The researchers found that eugenol showed inhibitory activity against almost all of the many fungal strains tested. They discovered that yeast cells were ruptured and even died due to the damage inflicted by eugenol, but even better news was that they discovered that eugenol almost entirely prevented the production of hyphae by candida albicans. (Hyphae are branching filaments that extend out from the cells of candida albicans and other fungi and can penetrate tissues in the body). The conclusion from the research was that eugenol has demonstrated a formidable antifungal activity against many fungal strains, including fluconazole-resistant yeast strains. Eugenol was even found to be effective against fungal strains that have become resistant to fluconazole (Diflucan), one of the most common and well-known antifungal drugs used in women’s yeast infections. Oregano is one of the most potent natural antifungal agents.’
9.‘Oregano: An advantage that oregano has against Candida is that the yeast can’t develop resistance against this particular antifungal, whereas other antifungals lose their efficacy against candida overtime. How does oregano work against Candida? The answer lies in the research conducted in 2001 at Georgetown University Medical Center found that the carvacrol and thymol present in the oregano oil inhibit the growth of Candida in a dose-dependent manner. It was seen that when injected into a culture of Candida in an amount of 0.25mg/ml, oregano oil inhibited the growth of the yeast completely. To try to see the results in vivo, mice that had Candida infections were divided into two groups and were injected with oregano oil and olive oil respectively. The mice injected with oregano oil were healed totally in a period of 30 days whereas as the ones injected with olive oil only lasted 10 days.’
10.‘Grapefruit Seed Extract: Scientist Dr. Sung-Hwan from Korea discovered by electron microscope that grapefruit seed extract works by altering the cell membranes of bacteria and yeasts, and the loss of the cell membrane can actually be seen under high magnification, in addition, he also discovered that grapefruit seed extract inhibits the pathogenic cells enzyme activities. The renowned American Research Institute has found grapefruit seed extract to be effective in the treatment of over 800 different kinds of bacteria and viruses and over 100 yeast and fungi species, in addition to inhibiting and killing many different species of parasites. The grapefruit seed extract is not detrimental to the immune system and unlike antibiotic drugs; it will not destroy beneficial flora. The grapefruit seed extract used in my favorite formula, ‘CanXida Remove is standardized to contain 45% flavonoids and is one of the most powerful forms of grapefruit seed extract available: https://www.canxida.com/remove/
(Grapefruit Seed Extract cannot be used with high blood pressure medicines.)’
