Candida albicans is a yeast that normally resides in the body in the digestive tract and vagina. Candida levels are kept in check by the immune system and beneficial probiotic bacteria in the body.
If probiotic bacteria are killed by antibiotics or if the immune system becomes weakened, Candida yeast may grow unchecked.
Local infections, such as oral thrush, skin infections and vaginal yeast infections in women can result.
People with severely weakened immune systems, such as those with cancer or AIDS, may develop widespread Candida infection, a serious medical condition called systemic candidiasis.
Some alternative practitioners believe that overgrowth of candida albicans yeast in the intestines is responsible for a yeast syndrome that results in symptoms such as fatigue, headache, mood swings, sinus congestion, depression, poor memory and concentration, and cravings for sweets.
The excess Candida yeast in the intestines is then thought to penetrate the intestinal wall, causing yeast and other unwanted particles to be absorbed into the body. The absorbed yeast particles are believed to activate the immune system, resulting in an allergic hypersensitivity to Candida.
Use of oral contraceptives, steroids, antacids, anti-ulcer medications, or frequent or long-term use of antibiotics
Food allergies and intolerances
Candida overgrowth follow certain diet guidelines:
Avoid sugar. Sugar promotes the growth of yeast. The total carbohydrate intake per day is often limited. For example, during the initial two to three weeks on the diet, the carbohydrate intake may be restricted to less than 60 grams per day, depending on age, health, activity level, and the extent of food sensitivities. Low-carbohydrate foods such as meat, chicken, turkey, shellfish, non-starchy vegetables, and certain nuts are emphasized instead. As symptoms subside, the carbohydrate total of the diet is often gradually increased.
Avoid foods containing any type of yeast. This includes fermented foods such as bread made with yeast, cheese, tomato paste, mushrooms, and beer. People with Candida overgrowth would also be allergic to other fungi, not all practitioners believe this restriction is necessary.
The length of time on a Candida diet depends on the length of time one has had symptoms and the severity of the symptoms. The general level of health is another important factor to alternative practitioners when recommending a treatment plan.

(Natural Antibiotic, Antifungal, Antibacterial)
Oregano Oil has been used in Europe as an antibiotic and antifungal agent. Recently it has also been shown to assist in the elimination of certain strains of amoebas. Many reports by physicians have shown that ADP has even been effective in preventing dysentery when traveling abroad.
Why you may need A.D.P.®:
When modern researchers attempt to unlock Nature’s herbal secrets, they frequently turn to the spices and herbs that have been used for centuries to add zest to a wide range of foods. Interestingly, long before the advent of refrigeration it was recognized that herbs and culinary spices could slow food spoilage – natural antimicrobial principles were obviously at work. Food scientists have become increasingly interested in essential oils and aromatic plants. Attempts are being made to identify the active components of essential oils from spices, among them – the oil of oregano. So far, analysis has revealed several phenolic compounds including Carvacrol, Thymol, Eugenol, 1,8 cineole, as well as Rosmarinic acid and other antioxidants. Of these compounds Carvacrol and Thymol are believed to have the greatest biological activity. A.D.P.® has been proven effective against yeast and parasites (Patent # 5,955,086). Further research looking at the mechanism of action is indicating that the active components of oil of oregano adversely affect the ability of various microbial organisms to reproduce.
Why your healthcare practitioner recommends A.D.P.® from Biotics Research:
While people have relied on the healing properties of oregano oil for hundreds of years, Biotics Research Corporation was able to dramatically improve the delivery system of oil of oregano. Many commercially available oregano oil products vary hugely in potency, additionally tinctures and other liquid forms of the oil may be difficult for many people to take as it leaves much to be desired taste-wise. Furthermore, oil of oregano is mostly absorbed in one region of the small intestine, thus limiting the efficacy of a non-sustained release product in reaching the areas of the small and large intestine more likely to be affected. Each tablet of A.D.P. supplies a standardized extract of oregano oil (50mg) in a sustained release mechanism as an emulsified form, thus ensuring the ease of dosing and maximizing delivery. A.D.P. is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women. As always, you can count on Biotics Research to provide you with superior nutritional supplements; the “Best of Science and Nature.
