Why Popular Candida Treatments Fail

Why Popular Candida Treatments Fail We look at products such as Threelac, Fivelac,
Primal Defense, and Syntol. Each of these products contains a substance called Bacillus
subtilis. Now Bacillus subtilis is a bacterial organism, and when exposed to oxygen, it’s
basically a facultative, aerobic organism, meaning it really is designed to live in an
oxygen-rich environment, which is not the intestinal tract because that’s an oxygen-deprived
environment. It’s anaerobic. But one of the unique mechanisms of Bacillus
subtilis is that it’ll go into what’s called an endospore, or spore form. And, in
that, when subjected to high temperatures or extreme pHs, such as the intestinal tract,
the stomach, it’ll go in a spore form. And in its spore form, it’s effective against
fungus, and it’s effective against bacteria, and it’s effective against protozoa, parasites,
and other microorganisms. Just to give you a little background, Bacillus
subtilis is the basis for one of the most powerful antibiotics on the planet, but its
inclusion in many of the over-the-counter antifungal, antiyeast products that are available
today is based on the observations of some soldiers in World War II. And let me just
read to you something that is consistently put out by the companies that include Bacillus
subtilis in their products. “Bacillus subtilis was discovered by the
German Medical Corps during World War II. They began to watch the local Arabs very closely
to see whether they were affected by dysentery. What they found was astonishing. At the first
sign of diarrhea, the affected Arab would start following around a camel. Once that
camel took a poop, they would scoop up the dung and eat it. Repulsive, I know, but that
is what they did.” That’s what it says here.
“The Germans analyzed the stools of the camels and discovered Bacillus subtilis. It
turned out that Bacillus subtilis was so powerful that it practically eats all harmful microorganisms
in the human body, including fungi. Subsequently, they figured out how to mass produce it, and
the troops no longer got dysentery.” And mass-producing it became the basis for
bacitracin and several other antibiotics and antifungal products that are on the market.
But what’s really important here, this says: “Bacillus subtilis was so powerful that
it practically eats all harmful microorganisms.” Now, there’s really no way to distinguish
whether Bacillus subtilis is eating harmful bacteria or beneficial bacteria. And if we
go back to what they were observing in the soldiers during the African campaign in World
War II, the soldiers were coming down – the Germans were coming down with dysentery, but
the Arabs weren’t. And that was because they were ingesting camel poop, which contained
Bacillus subtilis, and Bacillus subtilis got rid of dysentery. Well, dysentery is commonly
caused by bacteria and by protozoa. One form, the bacillus form of Shigella, is one of the
causes of dysentery. So we’re taking something into the body
within these products that actually kills bacteria. And, as I say, with the McCombs
Plan, what we really look at, most of the time, is the effect of antibiotics on the
human body, on the intestinal tract, on the 100 trillion

microorganisms that exist there. And if we’re ingesting something that will kill fungus,
perhaps that’s good, but there are reasons why that wouldn’t be, and I can explain
a little bit about that. But if it’s killing bacteria, then we’re causing the same problem
that antibiotics cause. And long-term and short-term effects of antibiotics
are very detrimental to this dense ecosystem because this dense ecosystem is where we get
our nutrients. And it’s also part of the natural immunity of the body, and it’s hard
for things to grow in there, and if you’re wiping out organisms in there, you’re creating
space for other microorganisms to grow, to overgrow. And this was the case with the dysentery.
And so they took Bacillus subtilis to wipe out.
But, to me, ingesting a substance simply because you see one effect doesn’t mean that there
aren’t side effects down the road. And, with antibiotics, what we’ve learned is
short-term, acute side effects can be diarrhea, which is usually what you find with dysentery.
But you can have, also, short-term, life-threatening colitis. Long-term effects can be cancer,
obesity, and a multitude of other conditions. So, while I understand the inclusion of Bacillus
subtilis might make these products more effective, my concern is that it’s also destroying
good bacteria. That is creating other imbalances. And, as I mentioned, it also killed fungus.
What we find with medications that are antifungal, that kill fungus, is that they cause antifungal
resistance. So anytime you go to give a person with Candida something that kills fungus,
you’re creating antifungal resistance. You’re actually wiping out the weak strains and allowing
the strong strains to survive because those are the ones that’ll be resistant; those
are the ones that’ll survive. That’s why, with antibiotics, we have so much antibiotic
resistance today. Tuberculosis is a good example. Tuberculosis
used to be “tuberculosis.” Then it became “antibiotic-resistant tuberculosis.” And
now it’s called “multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis.” And now there’s a new strain,
which is called “extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis,” where no antibiotics really
are effective against it, which is definitely life- threatening for anybody who comes down
with this rare strain. But it’s something that we see, in antibiotics as a whole, that
more and more bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics. And again, that’s what we
really focus on with the McCombs Plan. So in looking at these products, Threelac,
Fivelac, Primal Defense, Syntol, and any others that might contain Bacillus subtilis, you’re
actually looking at something that, effectively, works like an antibiotic, and “antibiotic”
meaning “against life.” And it works against life forms that are bacterial, protozoal,
parasitic, fungi, mold. And these are the organisms which make up the gut. And it’s
their collective effort inside of us which creates our health, which creates the health
of man as a superorganism. And also, Bacillus subtilis has been implicated, in a very few
small studies, to cause food poisoning. That is, if you look at the research, there’s
just enough reasons never to take Bacillus subtilis unless you were stranded in the desert,
and the closest thing to you was a camel, and you had dysentery.
