The McCombs Plan - Part 2

The McCombs Plan – Part 2 The third part of the plan is that we have
you drink plenty of water. The water helps facilitate flushing Candida out and reduces
inflammation and supports many other systems and processes within the body. So we recommend
one quart or one liter of water for every 50 pounds of body weight.
The fourth part of the McCombs Plan is the sweating. Sweating is very important. Most
Candida programs that you will hear about will talk about a die-off reaction and how
this is a good process to be going through. It shows that you’re killing Candida. The
die-off reaction is where, when you’re killing substances, that the tissues become so overloaded
with the toxicity of all that you’re killing off, that you start having more signs of inflammation
and achiness and just generally not feeling well. And the problem with that is when you
do that to the body, you cause the secretion of more mucus and more inflammation, which
will further impede getting rid of the Candida. So we have people sweat.
And in sweating, you’re using the largest detoxification organ on the body, which is
the skin. And you sweat six times a week, either through sauna, hot bath, Jacuzzi, steam
room – or even Bikram yoga will work. And the idea with the sweating, it has to be more
of a just stationary process, where you’re surrounded by heat, as opposed to exercise,
where you generate heat by moving the body and contracting the muscles. But in contracting
the muscles, you also cause some back-flushing, and so you don’t get full detoxification
of the body. So we encourage you to do your sweating by sitting and sweating in one of
those ways that we just mentioned. Sweating is a very important component of
the McCombs Plan, so important that I recommend if you can’t do the sweating, don’t do
the plan. If you’re not gonna sweat, and you’re gonna cause a die-off reaction – again,
the die-off is an accumulation of toxicity from killing substances within the body – that
this die-off reaction will impede getting rid of the Candida and only floods your body
with a lot of substances which cause further inflammation and production of mucus within
the tissues. And when we give you the undecenoic acid in
the Candida Force and the Detox Essentials to boost the immune system, we overcome that
problem, but we also need you to sweat to get rid of all this toxicity. And the skin,
again, is the largest detoxification organ on the body, and we’ve found that by doing
the sweating, we avoid die-off reactions, we avoid people getting worse. Where other
diets that exist around Candida think that the die-off reaction is actually beneficial,
it’s a good thing. But it slows the overall elimination of Candida. The mucus will coat
the Candida and prevent getting rid of it, so it’s something that we wanna avoid.
In the United States, sweating is something that doesn’t commonly occur in the health
setting, necessarily. In other countries, it’s an essential part of their cultures,
whether you’re from Finland, which has almost one sauna for every household, or you’re
in Germany, where they have community sweating. © Copyright 2010-2011, All Rights Reserved,
Dr. Jeffrey S. McCombs, DC Page 103 of 130 Sweating is a common part of many cultures,
but not something that you commonly find in America. In Finland, they have almost one
sauna for every household. In many of the countries in Germany, sweating is more of
a community, cultural thing that people go to sauna and spas where they can sweat each
week, either two, one, two, three times a week. You have countries like Russia, countries
like Japan; sweating is a big part of their cultures. And we see that here in America
‘cause we see Russian sweathouses, spas, and Japanese and Korean, and you see all these
different cultures where sweating is a big part of their culture.
And sweating is a great process. By using the skin, which is the largest organ in the
body, we get to eliminate a lot of toxins through the sweat which otherwise are forced
internally and then have to be processed through the liver or in the large intestine and the
lungs and the kidneys. So sweating is a big part of the plan. We’re using the skin to
help facilitate eliminating toxins, which otherwise will cause problems. The way it
causes problems, when you’re killing or eliminating so many of this excess yeast in
the body, that it just gets backed up and clogs the body up. So we wanna avoid that.
Through years of experience, I’ve found that exercise sweating doesn’t count. In
exercising, you have a lot of muscular contraction, which causes a back-flushing of toxins; whereas,
when we’re sitting, we just get to release naturally. There are sweat glands in the body
that come under the parasympathetic nervous system control and the sympathetic nervous
system control. So when you’re very active, you’re looking more at sympathetic nervous
system. When you’re under parasympathetic, we’re really looking at more of a resting
state, and it’s that resting-state type of sweating which seems to eliminate toxins
more efficiently in the body. So again, the sweating that we recommend is a sauna, steam
room, a hot bath, a Jacuzzi. And we found that people can also accomplish this through
Bikram yoga, which is a yoga practice that is done in a room temperature of 105 degrees.
The sweating is a very vital, important part of the plan, and through the years, we’ve
had people be very creative in how they sweat. We’ve had people pitch tents in their house
and cover them with a blanket and use steamers that they then lie inside the tent and create
a kind of home steam room. We’ve had people in other countries who didn’t have access
to steam rooms or saunas, and they’ve driven around in their car with the heater on. There
are little portable saunas that you can buy, which are a one-person sauna, for around $200
to $300 dollars, which is very effective. And the sauna is a type of sauna, a little
one-person sauna, that’s been around, at least to my recollection, since the ‘60s.
So people get very creative in how they do the sweating. Some people are concerned because
they may be in a very weakened state. They’re a cancer survivor. They’ve just been dealing
with cancer and chemotherapy and reaction. And if you feel like you’re in a weakened
state, the best way to approach sweating is to gradually work up to it. Take a five-minute
hot bath. Work up to ten minutes. Work up to 15 minutes. Work up to 20 minutes. If you
feel you’re too weak to do the sweating – which we recommend six times a week and
a least sweat for about ten minutes – then you can just gradually work up.
