If you’ve read my other articles about candida and candidiasis, you now know that it’s very easy to suffer from an over-population of candida albicans and the widespread inflammation it causes in your body: chronic candidiasis.

Inflammation is the cause of a lot of uncontrollable weight gain: in fact, the mechanisms related to candidiasis explain why a diet will work for a limited time (at best …) and otherwise, why nothing works at all.

In spite of all that I’ve explained on the subject, I still get emails about this all the time: you are many in having difficulties with weight loss or putting on weight too easily.

Fortunately, I get messages from some who have finally been able to lose weight thanks to “Your Anti-Candida Aromatic Program” … such as Caroline, who lives in Hong Kong:

“A few words about your book on detox.

After doing it a few months ago and losing 6 or 7 kilos at the same time, all my girlfriends wanted to do it. So, we are all starting it together (and it’s frankly more motivating!) I admit that the 2nd time is easier as well. I’m less confused about the recipes and I do what I enjoy the most.

As for the morning smoothie, it is made with the leftover fruits and vegetables of the day before. Very convenient!

If I keep up this momentum, I will have lost 10 kg this year, not too shabby and I’ll stop at that point I think 😉 “

Honestly, Caroline did not really need to lose weight… but it’s true that the Chinese are all so thin that we find ourselves to be a little rounder next to them.

Anyway, I would like my advice to serve those who really have weight problems, and therefore real inflammation issues.

So, here’s what you need to know if you can’t seem to lose weight.

Know that one of the symptoms of candidiasis is weight gain, or the difficulty of losing weight.

In fact, it can generate the kind of fat deposits that are difficult to dislodge, no matter how small the amount of food you eat or the amount of exercise you impose on yourself. You have to understand that no diet will help if you do not target the causes of the problem: chronic candidiasis.

Toxic waste of candida

Candida lives by eating (your sugar, your starchy foods, your medications), reproduces and dies. In fact, even when you treat your candidiasis, the toxins emitted by a dying Candida cell continue to be released into the bloodstream.

That’s why after a few days of relief at the very beginning of the program, you start having some weird symptoms again… and you think that your treatment isn’t working. Absolute rubbish!

In fact, whether in the course of treatment or before, the liver has more work because it must filter the toxins in question and send them to the kidneys. And in the process, it is often overworked (from the excess of toxins in your bloodstream).

So, it must put its toxins in reserve until later to take care of it: now, the best place to store all these toxins in fat cells around your hips, your belly, your thighs. Uh oh.

It’s in these areas that the fat deposits are as a result of the inflammation, therefore, candidiasis.

Sugar cravings, cookies, bread, etc…

In addition to the fact that candida needs sugar to reproduce, a certain level of toxicity and a natural inclination make people suffering from candidiasis live off of carbohydrates. However, wheat and sugar are addictive foods that create addiction, and feelings of withdrawal that go far beyond a mere psychological dependence.

In fact, Candida consumes large amounts of sugar and lowers blood sugar levels. This sugar drop triggers signals that tell the brain that you need more sugar. You feel that you need it: it’s physical. Your whole nervous system is at bay.

Extra stress

Toxic waste from candida also weakens your immune system, putting stress on the adrenal glands, which increase your cortisol level: an emergency response mechanism that tells the body to build up the reserves it needs to survive. Reserves you may ask? Fat. Yes, that’s right.


I think this is one of the main causes of weight gain in people with candidiasis: we eat to give ourselves energy because, let’s face it, we’re tired all the time.

Candida releases 79 different toxins in the body, including particularly debilitating neurotoxins such as acetaldehydes.

These toxins know how to cause a wide spectrum of symptoms such as:


Confusion in ideas


It is often this level of toxicity that prevents candida-invaded individuals from getting into exercise routine, or just having the urge to improve themselves.

They have no energy and no will. They are caught in a vicious circle in the description of which they recognize themselves…

That’s why a simple calorie reduction only treats the symptoms instead of attacking the cause.

We know how to lose weight, but often, it is a question of carrying out a “rebalancing” of our body’s terrain in which detox plays an important role.

By following an anti-fungal program, learning to eliminate certain intoxicating factors from your life, you are much more likely to lose weight, and maintain a cruising weight without effort, especially since weight loss is only one of the “side effects” noticed: it is also accompanied by a newfound energy, good mood, a desire to improve yourself, to change things for the better, and to enjoy a new optimism.

Essential oils are not foreign to this transformation and make the experience even more (easy) enjoyable.

Try it our yourself!

If you start having candidiasis symptoms once you stop following the anti-candida program, it may indicate that you need a bit more time on the diet to get the results you want.
