Green Candida Drink ~ How I Fight Candida And Balance The Gut Flora

Cleansing is one of the many ways I try to keep myself healthy.  But cleansing with harsh herbs can be a double edged sword.   It not only kills the bad bacteria, but the good, helpful bacteria as well. The problem with killing off the good as well as the bad???  The bad grows back faster than the good.

 I have been trying not to do any more Candida Cleansing that doesn't support good gut flora, so I have been growing my own herbs just to puree and drink.  The herbs I puree, are suppose to detox and balance the gut flora.   Here are some of the herbs I puree daily and drink twice a day.

Basil, Peppermint, Thyme, Oregano, Rosemary, Aloe, Garlic, Plus, I have a mixture of Clove and Cinnamon that I use.  


I sometimes throw in some ginger root or other herbs I have.


For the most part, I don't have any candida problems unless I eat really bad for awhile, then.... THRUSH!!   My tongue starts burning and turns a white color.    Like I said... this hardly ever happens.  But when it does, I mix up my fresh herbs with a little water and drink it down.

Last week my sister was here.  She has been having some real issues.  White tongue, yeast and bladder infections.   I started her on my Green Candida Drink.

Right away, it cleared her tongue up.  So, every night, she would have me make her another drink.
They taste horrible, but who cares as long as they work.

Here is my problem.   Winter is going to kill my fresh herb supply.   I am trying to make oil out of some of them and dry some.    I just don't know if the oil and dried herbs are going to work as well as the fresh does.

By the way, I drink this drink whether I have issues or not.  It just seems to keep everything running smoothly.

Do you grow your own herbs for cooking or cleansing?  What herbs do you grow?

  1. Can you bring your herbs inside? I'm glad it cleared up your sister's tongue.

    1. I could, and I tried that a few years ago, but they died. I guess not enough light and the dry heat.

  4. I never thought that you could use things like this for yeast. I constantly have issues with it and never know what to do for it. I am going to have to do some more reading on this.

  5. Terry I remember a while back I had bought an indoor herb garden set up--my apartment is hot and dry! But for some reason those herbs grew--I ultimately gave it away due to my cats eating the greens!! I wish I could remember the name of it for you----

  11. Detoxing kinda scares me, but I know a lot of people who do these cleanses, but I hear about the horrible side effects they've had and often wonder if its worth it, since I'm not having any issues with anything, but I think its great that we learn how to use food as medicine and can avoid antibiotics for things that sometimes our bodies become resistant to. So I think its over all a good thing.

  12. I've never really been one to cleanse, but I can only imagine the benefits. I'm glad it helped you sister.

    I haven't been growing my own herbs, but would love to, at a point.

  13. I haven't had much luck with growing herbs. The heat here seems to kill them. I do have some mint growing by the door because it's supposed to repel mice and snakes!

  14. I'm all about taking natural medicines when it comes to my family's heath. I don't have it right now, but I will bookmark this recipe in case I have it again.

  15. You know I love using natural detoxing methods also. I do love to grow my own basil, mint and thyme. Fresh is always so much better in cooking than dried from the baking aisle!

  16. I really want to try detoxing myself using natural methods like this. I wonder if I can find this kind of herbs here in my area so I will do the same as you did to clean myself..I mean, the inside of me.

  17. This is so interesting. had no idea there were 'gut flora' that we actually need. I guess there is always a balance of things even thsoe we think are good for us. I am still getting to the point where I can drink 'green' things...LOL...but this will definitely be good to keep in mind once I get there. Thanks for sharing!

  18. I once thought I had candida but thankfully I didn't! We've grown herbs in the past and there's nothing like fresh, homegrown herbs!

  19. We didn't grow any thing year, but usually do. It took so long for my husband to get the ground ready for corn, peas, green beans, and strawberries. He planted kale, but too far in the ground.

    I do love fresh herbs. When I get colds I put fresh thyme in a small mason jar. Then I add ginger, 1/2 a lemon and honey. I use that mixture in tea, and warm water. It helps with allergies.

    If I had those edible essential oils, I add a drop or two of them in the mix as well.

  20. This sounds very intriguing. I do have a garden of my own herbs. I love using them in cooking.

  21. How about trying to freeze some of the herbs? Maybe it still works? Am making green juice from herbs in the garden too

  22. Have you thought about doing some cold boxes? You dig down and fill with horse manure and then a layer of compost. Then you plant the herbs on top and cover with a wooden box with Windows. The sun hits them and the manure heats up underneath and keeps it warm enough to grow year round. Might be worth a shot. I would like to try growing more herbs.

  23. You can never have too many greens in your diet. They are so good for you! We have steamed greens every morning + greens in a smoothie.
