Spanish Black Radish


       Perhaps the greatest and best kept heatlh secret of all time is Spanish Black Radish and indole-3-carbinol. This is my favorite anticandida agent. That is not exactly true, it is NOT an anti-candida agent like OTC antifungals, prescription antifungals, coconut oil or garlic. It does not repopulate the intestinal tract like Kefir does in its action. Spanish Black Radish has several agents, apparently in large, clinically useful amount, that increase the function of the intestinal immune system, thus making us temporarily immune to candida albicans. For those of us that are hypersensitive to Candida Albicans, increasing our immunity to Candida is vital, and is the way to go! The only source of tableted Spanish Black Radish that I have found to date is the product by Standard Process Inc. They sell only to health care professionals, but you can visit their web site to see where you can purchase their products in your area. Black Radish is effective in intestinal toxemia, especially for detoxifying the bowels. Spanish Black Radish Tablets by Standard Process are organically grown and dried on their own facilities in Wisconsin. However, one can now find indole-3-carbinol tablets which seem even more potent than the radish formulation. I am taking 50 mg of indole-3-carbinol with each meal now that I have found it to be available locally from various manufacturers. See this google search.

       Spanish black radish, Raphanus sativus, subspec. niger, is a variety of the common garden radish and is a member of the Brassica family and it is related to broccoli and kale, but seems to have vastly more of the acitive ingredient than these common vegetables. Like its cousins, radish has a long history of culinary use, though the black radish has been used mostly for well being. In India where it is known as Mooli, the roots are used to support a healthy liver and the seeds for menstrual cycles. Across Asia the seeds are also used to promote digestion, and in Chinese medicine, where it is known as Lái Fú Zî, where it is said to transform phlegm and cause ch'i to descend. In Europe, the roots of the plant are traditionally used to support the gallbladder and is recommended for this purpose in the German reference book, "Herbal Medicine." Studies from Europe show evidence that it supports liver function, while others suggest that Spanish black radish may also inhibit platelet aggregation. A substance found in radish seeds, raphanin, is thought to modulate hormone production in the thyroid gland. Like all members of the Brassica family, it contains powerful phytonutrients, indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphene.

        Spanish Black Radish help protect against free radicals. Phytonutrient anti-oxidant substances like vitamin C are present in cruciferous vegetables such as Spanish black radish. These substances stimulate the body and help protect it against free radicals - the highly unstable oxygen molecules that damage cell matter, including DNA. Stimulate body's own system for neutralizing harmful substances. Components such as indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphene are found in Spanish black radish. These two substances stimulate two of the body's most powerful detoxification mechanisms - the cytochrome P450 and the Phase II enzyme systems - the body's biochemical pathways for converting toxins into harmless or easily excretable substances. If you click on these two links, you will be taken to over four hundred medical journal articles espousing the value of these two ingredients in protecting against intestinal, cancer, but nothing on their role as antifungal agents. This makes me ask if Candida Albicans intestinal overgrowth is a prelude to colon cancer? I don't know, but there is nothing that I have found that is more effective in controlling sensitivity to candida albicans than Spanish Black Radish, most likely by action of its indole-3-carbinol content. Another similar product appears to be Russian Black Radish, which is said to works in conjunction with the liver in the body's natural efforts to detoxify. It is claimed to mobilize and help detoxify heavy metals.

        How on earth did I come up with the idea of Spanish Black Radish for candida albicans? I didn't. I walked into People's Pharmacy on South Lamar in Austin, Texas and complained to the pharmacist/CCN on duty, Laura, and she said in one sentence: "Spanish Black Radish - 3 tablets, 4 times a day". I looked at her and thought, "Well, if that isn't the dumbest idea...", but I went along with her since I was "up the creek without a paddle". I took the little Standard Process Inc. bottle of Spanish Black Radish home, and well the rest is history. It worked perfectly from the first day I used it. How did I know that it "worked"? My most irritating health issue has been benign cardiac arrhythmias called pre atrial contractions (PACs), and they are caused by a weird combination of low taurine and candida albicans. Taurine in very high doses (3 grams, 4 times a day) would work for a while, but the fungal growth would max out in a week and wow! A real mess occurs and massive amounts of iodine was the only way to kill off the Candida. But, when Spanish Black Radish was also used with moderately high doses of taurine, my arrhythmias were better controlled than by any other agent. I may mention other treatments for my cardiac arrhythmia problem elsewhere in this 136 page report, but nothing works better for me than Spanish Black Radish as of August of 2005, except pure indole-3-carbinol tablets. Are the other antifungals still necessary? I suspect that they are to some degree, and daily garlic and Kefir remain extremely important. We must greatly reduce our intake of "fuel" for candida albicans. Fuel? Yes, the primary role of candida albicans is to help digest carbohydrates like sugar.

        If you are interested in cardiac arrhythmias, then my article "Taurine Role in Cardiology and Cardiac Arrhythmias" featuring the fabulous 1974 medical journal article "Taurine and Electrical Activity of the Heart" by Chazov et. al is the place for you. The Chazov article is the only article in the medical literature - that I could find - to scientifically discuss the role of taurine in controlling and preventing certain cardiac arrhythmias. To my way of thinking, to ignore taurine and taurine deficiencies in cardiology is medical malpractice, and must be stopped.
