Soil-based Organisms And Candida

Recommended Posts

Okay I need input !!

About a week ago I somehow found something on the internet about soil-based organisms...and how they eat candida.

And I was suspicous I have candida.

Basically 3 weeks ago I started just eating low carb. Obviously no gluten... I have felt better but still feel like I have a ways to go.

So this morning I had a very nice bowel movement. I looked at it (which I have sorta gotten in the habit to do)

And... it was white! I have NEVER seen it look like that before!!

So I wonder is that candida/yeast?? It looked like the stool had a white glossy coating and just whiteish...lots of white.

I've been eating a pinch of good soil twice a day with water. Along with eating non-washed veggies from organic farmers market or even picking wild greens off the ground to get the soil-based organisms. I started this 1 WEEK AGO. I was initially very excited this could be some sort of answer (intuitively I just felt it would be)...but now that I see this I am getting excited. Also I have not been seeing yeast in my eyes!! That started like 2 days after I started eating the soil.

Are they eating the candida??????? Is that why my stool is white???

Is there any other reason for this because this is getting me EXTREMELY excited.

My theory is that we need these soil-based organisms. Probiotics are nothing compared to these. We have stopped eating vegetation from the ground. Without getting into it, supposedly these things are crucial to our gut health. We evolved with SBO's...

So if this is truely candida...what I"m guessing is happening is this!

The SBO's are indeed colonizing my gut...and literally EATING all this bad candida/yeast/bad bacteria like they are supposed to. And so my bowel movement is just wiping and cleaning all that dead yeast up! If this is true this is absolutely amazing.


I eat whatever I want. But I listen to my body. I just can't eat a lot of diary or grains. If I do eat them, I savor and chew them slowly and well... I don't like feeling sluggish and if I eat alot of those things I start feeling sluggish. I feel very cleaned out now. I like to eat lots of raw fruits and veggies. I think for me I just can't eat things that are inflammatory, and dairy and all grains are inflammatory to me. So looks like I'll be eating mainly fruits, veggies, wild or grass-fed meats, and figure out what other stuff I can eat thats not too inflammatory. I'll probably also drink wine or brandy and use other plants things that are anti-inflammatory. Yeah!

well i'm surprised no one has replied. It seems like good news to me. I once ate raw food from a community garden (95%) of my diet for 3.5 weeks. My candida vanished. I tried replicating this experience with supermarket produce with little success. So its my idea that its the SBO's from the fresh picked produce that kill off candida.

Which makes perfect sense.

Primates eat over 130 different species of plants per season. It seems plants and the microorganisms they are symbiotic with pretty much make up our immune system. We were designed to get this supplemental good bacteria from the outside world.

Now our soils are sterilized. Our food and dairy is sterilized. Our plants are taken from fields and eaten days or weeks later. And washed...and cooked...

If this works for me then its like the best thing to come. Think about it. Its FREE. And it works. And its natural and what we were designed to do in the first place. The problem is we just ARE NOT DOING IT.

Regardless if anyone replies I'll keep posting my experiences. Because even if no one believes me I need to get this out there to help others...

Where do you get the soil? Even though it sounds like a good idea in principle, in reality it sounds like a prescription for getting parasites to me. Which I wouldn't be eager to do. In fact, I am going to do a parasite cleanse soon, which would also get rid of candida.

I just scratch of a bit of soil from a organic potted plant thing I have. But I don't think you even need to do that. Its my guess the SBO's become symbiotic with different plants. So the more plants/herbs you can eat right from the ground/plant... the better.

When I was eating out of the community garden I would literally roam 20 acres of gardens. I felt savage and primal. I would just graze and move around picking off whatever plants looked appealing to me. It was very instinctive. I probably ate 15 different species of plants a day (too bad it was pretty much same species each day)... different herb leaves.. I found myself gravitating to that very fast because my health was increasing the more I did that.

So its my guess I was getting different sets of SBO's the more plants I ate...which was building my immune sytem, recolonizing my gut, and I felt the best I have felt in my entire LIFE. Someone told me I was the most beautiful person they had ever seen. I felt so good and looked so good.

Part of that could have been from just eating almost all raw food, and also fresh food. That was it definitely, but I think there was something about the SBO's for sure...

Think how easy this is if it truely works. Just start a mini-garden. Even indoors. Make good soil...only organic...give it trace minerals. Build that soil-life and all the micro-organisms. The SBO's are responsible for killing candida/yeast in the soil... and they do the same thing in our guts.

In fact its kinda weird. Our microvilli are like roots... just as plants have roots. And the SBO's clean the soil the roots extend in...just like the SBO's clean the intestines/mucous membranes our villi are in.

I'm not certain this in candida...but I wanted to post because I wasn't sure. It could have been something else but I'm not sure. I read something about how it could be related to inflammation in the gut. I did have bits of gluten and did have minor glutening this past weekend... so it could have been that? I don't know... I'll have to just keep an eye out.

very interesting. thanks for posting. I was under the impression that stool should be dark brown. If light in color it pointed towards candida overgrowth. Yellow is the color of candida when it comes out during colon hydrotherapy.

The more I learn it seems the less I know:)

Okay I need to post.

Now I"m just wondering if my mucusy BM was the result of inflammation in my GI tract. Reasoning?

Last weekend I ate small amounts of gluten. A few chips, a few cookies...nothing more.

I noticed instantly the same day of eating that...that i was running out my end... you know what I mean. Something was not functioning right. It wasn't -bad- perse, but I was still runny and that never happens...

So now I wonder if this is all it was.

I hate to make all these posts but hey...I'm learning right... maybe it still is candida I don't know. But my BM's have been good since then.

Maybe..just maybe... I only just have gluten intolerance. And that my ongoing problems are still just related to healing... since obviously I can't tolerate gluten. I can however eat ice cream it seems.

I don't know what to think...

"Soil based organisms" would be very tiny life forms living in the soil.

I'm not so sure I would want to explore this too deeply, personally. I know for a fact that both of my grandmothers - both born in the late 1800's - washed the vegetables they grew. I also know for a fact that all the neighborhood dogs and cats (and probably coyotes) pee and poop on everything they can hit. Given that, eating any of it at all, never mind without washing it, really isn't very appetizing. :blink:

Places for info: the book "The Makers Diet" by Jordan Rubin. Check it out on the web. He had chronic candidiasis among many other illnesses. He almost died, then he tried homeostatic soil organisms (read on page 26). Now he is normal and thriving. Also try www.swansonvitamins.com. They sell A huge amount of natural supplements way cheaper then anywhere. Fast service! Only $5 shipping for any size order. They have the Garden of Life supplements from Jordan Rubin and their own brand of Soil Based Organisms for about $10. However it lists on the bottle of their brand: barley juice, oat grass leaf and wheat grass leaf. My daughter is the gluten-free one in my house and I think my husband and other daughter have several symptoms, I have none. So I need to find out for sure if this is considered gluten b/c I am new at this. You can call Swansons for a free catalog. They sent me a sample one and then a bigger one later. 1-800-437-4148. I have tried SBO's and I think they work good. They help digest your food and if you are sick they fight the bad bugs. I had a tooth infection and I took them among other things and it cleared up in 3 days with very little pain and no trip to the dentist. They work just like probiotics like Primadophilus Bifidus. Swansons sells name brands like: Nature's Way, Schiff, Weil, Kyolic, Jarrow, Enzymatic, Country Life, etc. They sell lotion, coconut oil, body cleanses, whey, fish oils, etc. And money back guaranteed! No need to order for faster service, it usually takes less than 5 business days to get your order. They sell the national brands cheaper than you can get them from their own company. The face creams have parabens, so avoid those. Dr. Mercola has recently joined them. Hope this helps someone out there health and money wise!!!
