Nurse Darlene Shares Her 
Step-By-Step Candida Cleansing Protocol 
by Aga Postawska, Holistic Health Coach on November 14th, 2017

"The best parts of my improvements have been mental. Brain fog, word finding difficulty and fatigue are almost gone. Mental clarity has been the greatest gift for me."

I met Darlene in the Candida Cleanser Facebook Support Group. She'd been an active member since the beginning of her health journey and continues to be a bright beacon of hope and encouragement in the community as she continues on.

When I asked her, "What finally brought you to finally do the cleanse?" 

She replied,"I used to be a nurse. It was the pharmacology that sold me. Especially the part about how it was suppressed because it worked so well. Big Pharma needs us cash cows."

I instantly fell in love with Darlene and her raw truth.

She continued, "I see way too many that are "afraid." Whatever we can do to assuage the fear... I'm so grateful to be able to help others. Thank you so much for inviting me to write this."

Darlene's background in medicine made me extremely curious about how she proceeded with her cleanse. I asked her to share her story and below is what she wrote into me. (Yes, she personally wrote me a physical letter!! Darlene is old school awesome!)

Preparing For The CCWS Candida Cleanser
"Before beginning the CCWS I learned about and started the GAPS, 
read and learned everything I could get my hands on, learned how 
to make bone broth, started drinking it and bought a cheap notebook 
to use for a journal."

On May,17th, 2017 I took my first dose of CCWS [The Candida Cleanser]. It was loading day #1 of what would be 6 loading cycles. I did 2 consecutive bottles of CCWS. 

My journey in obliterating Candida fungal overgrowth actually began 5-6 weeks earlier. You see it took 5 weeks exactly to come from Thailand. 

I used my 5 week waiting period to read and learn as much as I could about Candida, Lufeneron and how to best kill the mother. 

Many times I have strongly recommended that you buy, read, and study
Gut & Psychology Syndrome, by Dr. Natasha Cambpell-Mcbride MD. I see many questions on the FB support group that are very thoroughly covered in her book on the GAPS diet.

See our earlier blog post to learn about the GAPS Diet and to download the GAPS Approved Food Guide to help you get started: What Is The Gaps Diet?

I went on the GAPS diet, while awaiting my medicine. This wasn’t as traumatic as it is from some because:

1) I had eliminated sugar over 3 years prior as I was diagnosed with IDDM (Insulin dependant diabetes mellitus). 

2) I am allergic to wheat, so I had eliminated it.

I also learned how to make bone broth and began drinking it. I was diligent on the FB Support Group page and learned much while there. I still do. I would very much like to thank Patty for starting and maintaining this invaluable tool! 

Without support and encouragement of the 4 Musketeers and the 2 Amy's, (you know who you are), I really don't think I could have sustained my (difficult at times) healing journey. If you are not already utilizing this FB page - I strongly recommend it. You will find that there is much LOVE here for you. Encouragement and support abound!

Keep Track With A Healing Journal

I also bought and kept a healing journal as recommended. Its just a cheap composition notebook from Walmart. But a priceless resource, during and after, my cleanse. (By the way, I hate journaling!) I have dates, what I ate, how much I drank (about a gallon a day), exercise taken, and most importantly die off symptoms! 

I wrote down a list of my symptoms. And on a scale of 1-10 gave every one a value. This was also suggested. I took every suggestion seriously because I really REALLY  wanted to get well.

It is my ULTIMATE GOAL to get off all the Pharmaceuticals!

During The Cleanse

I had die off, mostly constipation. It started on CCWS #1, about Day 15, and got progressively worse until I finished bottle #2. 

I got what I call “flash headaches.” They come on hard and fast and then they’re gone.

Day 20 brought HUGE nasal mucus release. I blew my nose for 15+ hours. It was incredible! I’ve had many minor events since then, but that was the worst. 

Nasal mucus was my exit portal of choice, an amazing amount of mucus came out!

Supplementary Detox Protocols

I also did a Power Parasite Cleanse in between CCWS bottles 1 and 2. It was a 15 day cleanse I started on the 10 non-loading days [of the Candida Cleanser Protocol].  I saw ALOT of worms in the toilet.

After Day 90, I started extensive bowel cleansing. Then liver/gallbladder and kidney. We ask an awful lot of our elimination organs. Mine needed to rest and detox. 
The constipation actually impacted my colon.

I found a pearl of a colon hydrotherapist and after months of cleansing, have cleared up that problem.

I also have an iridologist. She reads the nerve endings in the iris. My intestines liver, and gallbladder were severely congested after my 90 days of CCWS. They are all clear now.

Many people want Brand names. I’ll give you three that I found invaluable.

1) Liver Support goes well beyond milk thistle. I use Dr. Richard Schultz extracts. The “strongest herbs on the planet.” I used the L/GB throughout my CCWS cleanse. www.

2) After my CCWS I followed Dr. Andreas Moitz. "The Amazing Liver Gall Bladder Flush." 
I strongly recommend to buy, read, and study this book if you have intention to do this flush. 

3) And lastly CBD oil was a wonderful supplement. I had a few “melt downs” and CBD is great stuff. What I use is

. Expensive but worth it. It comes in several does - 250,500,750, 1500. I use 500 daily.

"I wish each and every one of your a full recovery 
on your individual healing journey. 


Thank you Darlene for sharing your story with us! 

Happy cleansing everyone,
Aga Postawska, HHC
