Dissolves candida's cell wall

Lufenuron INTERFERES WITH Candida
similar to the immune system


My name is Sarah Vaughter. I am a medical research journalist.
I write about Candida on my site owndoc.com.

15 years ago my husband and I discovered a prescription-free, over-the-counter, harmless veterinarian flea remedy that attacks Candida while putting no burden on liver and kidneys. It causes a degradation of Candida's cell wall. Unethical copycats have taken notice of this and nowadays sell Chinese pesticide-grade (impure) Lufenuron under various names, such as "Candida Cell Wall Suppressor" or "Candida Cleanser" (review). More about these scammers here and here.


Lufenuron is a common oral flea treatment for pets but we discovered that, higher-dosed it can treat vaginal yeast, oral Candida, Candida rashes and intestinal Candidiasis in animals. The dosages are adjusted according to weight and increased according to purpose. More serious semi-systemic Candidiases may need multiple treatments and are at least temporarily improved. The Lufenuron is "loaded" into the fatty tissues over a period of three days, and then slowly releases, maintaining tissue concentrations high enough to attack the Candida for two weeks. Antifungals such as Diflucan are harmful to the liver and kidneys. Lufenuron is not metabolized or eliminated by the liver or kidneys, but excreted through the feces. Lufenuron has no side effects but indirectly, it can cause a severe dieoff reaction as reported below - an immune response against dead Candida fragments and suddenly released Candida toxins ("die-off", or "detox" reaction). Read the details of Lufenuron as a Candida treatment.

Ahhh, it’s gratifying to see someone came up with the same idea I did, but has put it into action. I’m a PhD candidate doing fungal ecology, and 5 years ago I wondered why there wasn’t a non-toxic chitin-inhibiting anti-fungal on the market for humans, so I started researching and came upon lufenuron. I’ve been taking IT now for 5 years against Malassezia sp. to treat seborrhea. It’s nice to see someone has actually gone to the trouble of obtaining it wholesale to distribute for human consumption independent of government and corporation.

Lufenuron fights Candida similar to the body.
It is a Chitin synthesis inhibitor.

Chitin is what makes the fungal cell wall strong.

Mammalian cells have a way of fighting Candida:
They produce the enzym Chitinase, which - like Lufenuron- causes holes in the fungal cell wall, by dissolving Chitin. Lufenuron prevents Chitin formation. So your own body attacks Candida by interering with fungal Chitin. Lufenuron does that too. An Israeli study confirmed this: [Ben-Ziony Y, Arzi B. Use of Lufenuron for treating fungal infections of dogs and cats: 297 cases (1997-1999) JAVMA 217(10) (Nov 15) 2000].
The Israeli clinic systematically tested lufenuron in ringworm-infected cats and dogs.
Over the 2-year period, they treated 201 cats and followed 23 on a daily basis. Most cats treated with Lufenuron doses ranging from 51.2 to 266 mg/kg (23.1 to 120.9 mg/lb) cultured negative for ringworm in 8.3 days and began growing hair in 12 days.
Four cats either cultured positive for ringworm or developed lesions again but responded well after a second treatment.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

I am sure you get many emails like this so I'll keep it brief. I know you have a fair few sceptics and even "haters", I saw all that before I bought the powder but it didn't put me off - I know I have candida after at least 7-8 years of suffering and 2 years of research, so I did expect it to work. There's always that fear that it won't, though, and then what prospects lie ahead? Continued misery, of course.

I can now eat normal food without all the usual symptoms - waking up in the middle of the night covered in sweat, especially on the shins, having to spit mucus out from post nasal drip, red blotchy itchy face, endlessly gurgling stomach, etc, etc.

So, thank you for sticking through all the suspicion and negativity and all that utter bullshit - helping even one person to fix a completely destroyed life is worth all the effort. Your product works.

I'd taken 2x long ish (20 day) courses of Fluconazole 150mg/day in the past 4 months but didn't feel that much of a result and didn't get any die-off reaction with that alone, however I took the same with the Lufenuron and sure enough after 5 days I really started feeling like crap. Still, I've never felt so happy to feel ill! Feeling great now, much more sparkly-eyed and focused too.

I'll be buying 2 more packs from you tomorrow and I've already recommended this to 3 people who I am 99% sure also have a candida overgrowth, from their very similar symptoms.

If you could do with a full review and account of events & experiences then I would be more than happy to provide one, just let me know if this is the case.

Cheers & love from Birmingham, where the doctors don't even acknowledge that candida exists - in fact my doctor laughed when I told her why I wanted more Fluconazole. Obviously she refused to prescribe it.

My husband had severe systemic

I don't know whether you ever had to deal with a really serious Candida infection, but my husband never wants to go through that again. When given a chance, Candida yeast grows roots and becomes a severe health threat. His Candida was an opportunistic infection due to antibiotics for a recurrent ear infection and he developed Candida thrush in the mouth. Before long, the infection moved up to his bladder and he was prescribed Voriconazole. This cleared up the problem, but later the infection returned with a vengeance and he went with kidney pains to a specialist. A test confirmed that the fungus had moved into both kidneys, and he was put on daily IV's of liposomal Amphotericin B. That did not fully eliminate the Candidia - it quickly gets resistant to antifungal drugs - and years of trouble lay ahead.

After many years of undiagnosed bouts of intense nausea my digestive problem was finally diagnosed by conclusive laboratory tests as Candida Parapsilosis. None of the prescribed antifungal medications had any permanent effect. Just to name a few: Fluconazole, Ketoconazole, Itraconazole, Amphotherizine B, Clotrimazole (causing intense pain during urination).

After several treatments of Lufenuron with much better but not permanent results I finally tried using double amounts of Lufenuron. This was a major break through ! Now I can eat a regular diet - not so sugar paranoid as I used to be.

Twice a year I take a Lufenuron course just as precaution or if I get a slight warning of impending nausea.

Lufenuron has changed my life for the better!

He discovered a new
Candida treatment

John luckily found out about Lufenuron. Because the IV antifungals had harmed his kidneys, he wanted to find a totally safe substance that could help him cure his Candida. He found it in online medical databases.

Candida is so hard to kill because roughly half of its cell wall is made of the extremely hard Chitin. The other half is Ergosterol. Chitin is the same material as the exo-skeleton of insects like fleas and intestinal parasites. It's hard to crush a flea because its Chitin armor is so strong. We have no use for Chitin in our bodies. But a fungus deprived of Chitin dies in large numbers because the Chitin literally prevents it from "bleeding out" through holes in the cell wall.The fungus will compensate by producing more Ergosterol and filling the "missing Chitin holes" with Ergosterol, but this makes its cell wall soft and vulnerable to the immune system.

There exist other Chitin-blockers, but Lufenuron is uniquely non-toxic. Long-term animal tests with very large quantities over half a year showed no teratogenic effects (effects on the fetus) and no mutagenic/carcinogenic effects.

Hey Sarah, I received your package extremely fast after you sent it. I ate it over 5 days with organic store-bought yogurt with bifidus bacteria (no chance to culture my own yogurt here), and on the third day, I developed a throbbing headache, chapped lips, and just felt all over terrible.

It lasted a grand total of one day, since I was drinking lots of water and eating very healthily. Afterwards, any trace of smell I had is gone, and my mind is much clearer. It's been a week since I did the treatment, and I'm still feeling significantly better than I did before the treatment.

Lufenuron: safe AND effective

US Patent 6110971 is for Lufenuron as an effective antifungal in humans - also against Candida: link.

John studied the medical research literature on how Lufenuron was used as a successful anti-fungal in animals, and, based on successful use on chimpanzees, calculated a treatment regimen that hopefully would make a dent in his Candida problem. His success was amazing. His symptoms cleared up very quickly. On the fifth day, his die-off reaction was so strong that he first thought he was allergic to the Lufenuron. The sores in his cheeks disappeared and the inside of his lips crusted as the Candia died off that had entrenched itself in his mucous membranes. His lips became so chapped that they became calloused and started to bleed. That skin had been infested with Candida and had made his lower lip floppy like of soft silicone and would not spring back quickly after being pulled forward and down. After the severe dieoff reaction his lips went back to being firm again in the days that followed. Lufenuron keeps killing the Candida long afterwards because it is very slowly released from the fatty tissues - another unique property of Lufenuron.

One can still see the “shaded area” that used to be infected – this is the BEST SITUATION in some 20 years+!!!!

Pеtеr Jеnsеn, Norwаy

He wanted to be sure of Lufenuron's safety so he called Novartis in Switzerland and got confirmed that Lufenuron has no known side effects and is totally safe for mammals, and that it indeed eradicates Candida. When he asked why Novartis wouldn't do human trials with Lufenuron, the Swiss Veterinarian and fellow Chemistry Ph.D. replied that it was originally intended as a veterinary flea remedy and that they only recently started to receive anecdotal reports on its effect on yeasts and fungi in animals. He acknowledged that this was no more than logical, considering the Chitin-chemistry of the fungal cell wall but he said there were many factors involved in such strategic corporate decisions and that he did not know whether Novartis was interested in getting it approved for use in humans. Novartis' patent was about to expire, that was the reason. Now it is expired and the substance is available as a generic flea treatment. We are the only supplier with extremely pure Lufenuron, tested by Exova Inc. to conform to the EU rules for veterinarian medicine, which are identical to those of human medicines. When John continued to inquire about possible long term-side effects, this man confided that he privately recommends Lufenuron to Candida-sufferers in his own family. We were amazed he was so upfront, because I am sure Novartis' official position is "no comment" on this. This is what happens when one manages to get throught to a lab person instead of a "suit".

Last Sunday -Tuesday was my monkey's third dose of Lufenuron. I wanted to write you with excellent news. For the first time in many years, the monkey can breathe! This drug is having a positive effect on its breathing, which I suspected was caused by fungus. I can't tell you the difference it's making. It is the middle of summer with very hot and humid days here in Western NY. The monkey is now out running 2-3 miles per day in this heat, whereas last year at this time he could barely walk or ride a bike for long distances. The hardened mucus in his lungs is actually breaking up and he is finally able to cough some of it out now, whereas up to this point he never could cough anything out. I have to attribute this to the drug.

What if the Candida returns?

It is possible that Lufenuron won't fully eradicate a Candida infection, as Candida is extremely hard to get fully and permanently rid of. Conquering chronic, serious Candida usually takes years, where getting proper sleep, meticulous intimate hygiene and using Betadine cream are helpful. Seriously ill animals - especially when immune-compromised - may only be partially cured, but the good news is that research shows that when Candida becomes resistant to the Chitin-inhibitor Lufenuron (by mutating into a form of Candida that does not need Chitin in its cell wall), that this Candida becomes much weaker as a tradeoff. "Attenuated virulence", it is called. Reduced agressivity. So even if the infection doesn't clear up fully, the immune system will have an easier job eliminating it:

link to scientific article / actual article as a PDF

You see, an animal does not become resistant against an antifungal, the Candida does. By mutating. In case of the Chitin-inhibitor Lufenuron, by mutating into a Chitin-deficient cell-wall form. Which is a much weaker form of Candida - because the "armor", the Chitin, is missing. So even in case the Lufenuron doesn't kill the infection, it severely weakens the Candida fungus. The immune system should then be able to keep the infection in check and allow a slow recovery. Lufenuron, used off-label to treat fungal infections in zoo animals or pets is the safest anti-Candida treatment there is. It's safer than oil of Oregano for example - have you ever gotten a drop on a sensitive spot of skin or in your eyes? Imagine what it does to the intestines - it kills perhaps 10% of the Candida but also a bit of the intestinal cell wall. The remaining Candida entrenches deeper into the damaged intestinal lining. "Natural" doesn't always mean that it is practical. In the end, everything should be judged by its merits. Mammalian bodies produce Chitinase to attack Candida's Chitin - Lufenuron is similar to that. Not all fungal species are susceptible to Lufenuron. Aspergillus for example is not. But Candida is.

Summing up: Lufenuron is a powerful OTC/off-label anti-Candida remedy. It has been proven to work very well on all mammals including primates with Candidia infection such as vaginal thrush, Candida sores, irritation or rashes etc. As can be read in the endorsements (and new ones constantly come in, especially about cleared-up chronic psoriasis-like rashes of unknown etiology!), it works on people too, but we're of course absolutely not permitted to market this for human use by the FDA or by our payment processor, but it would be OK to use it on animals as flea prevention with an added benefit of hopefully doing something about a possible Candida infection. It is safe and can be combined with any other medicine because as a specific anticatalyst to Chitin synthesis, it is chemically and metabolically inert. No diet needs to be observed, no beneficial gut flora will be affected.

Hello Sarah, I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with this product. I have been fighting bad health for 10 years. I found out about 3 years ago that I had a bad heavy metal poisoning. I knew I had yeast and maybe other parasitic issues from my immune system being so damaged from the metals. I had tried many different products you list in the scam section and found them all to be just that A SCAM. I decided 3 years ago to focus on the chelation and then attack the parasites. Well it had been around 3 years and I can tell the metal issue is much better but I could not rid myself of these parasites. There is absolutely no support when dealing with these types of health issues from our Dr.s wrapped up in the BIG PHARMA scam either. I finally found the product that works! I took my first 2 week dose of lufenuron last weekend and this weekend I had a very bad die off reaction that produced HUGE welts and hives ALL over my body, even my joints itched but could not get to them lol. I also puked up a mass of die off along with it coming out the other end at the same time. After the puke and clean out the hives went away in about an hour and I slept better than I had in years.

I can tell you this,, we went out yesterday for shopping and lunch. I had wings and 2 light beers which I could not have tolerated in the past several years. I ate those wings and that beer tasted so good, AND the best part was, I had no issue even hours later! I know I can do that everyday right now, but just that one day of not feeling bad after a meal like that was like being in heaven. I was able to walk around and shop afterwards and let me tell ya, I have not been able to that for a long time.

LUFENURON USER WHO found a large intestinal worm.

(Note that "Candidacleanser" is pretending, in many spam comments to her 5-part video series, that it isn't our product but theirs! But she shows our Lufenuron bag (with the old "human use" label) at the start of the video although she never mentions our company or site. Beware of Chinese pesticide-grade Lufenuron from unethical vendors. Read our Lufenuron instructions for important information.)

Discreet envelope by airmail

TRANSIT TIME 2 to 3 weeks.

We sell a two-week course of 9 grams of Lufenuron for $27, including shipping. Due to Lufenuron's very long biological half-time and extremely slow release from the fat tissues, exact dosing is not required. For large primates, use approx. a third per day. Your primate's Candida will be under attack for a total of two weeks. It is supplied as a loose powder (with a heat-sealed anti-tamper bag around the ziplock bag) because it is very hard to absorb Lufenuron because it is not water-soluble. It really has to be thoroughly mixed into fat-rich food. Such food for dogs and cats is called "wet food". Loose powder because this works much better than capsules. Please note that this is off-label use and that any kind of discussion about humans using it to treat Candida may result in a total sales ban for all Lufenuron products, since it may then be reclassified as a drug. We mention that people used our product to their benefit but we absolutely under no circumstance are permitted to sell this as a product for human use, neither are we permitted to claim that it can cure disease. We do not think it can cure disease, but our customers apparently think it made them at least temporarily feel better. Let's call it a strong and quite reliable placebo effect.

Dear Sarah,
The first round I bought for my husband because he had a severe patch of dermatitis on his leg that I suspected was yeast related. Yes, you guessed it. IT WAS COMPLETELY HEALED!!!!

By the way, I happened to ask the vet about taking this medicine and she replied that, “if you can give it to a cat it can’t hurt you”. I thought that was funny.

Lufenuron usage instructions (important!)

Lufenuron does not work on nail fungus because there is no blood supply to them.
Instead, use our natural "vampire fungus" product: Pythium oligandrum.
(Don't use Lufenuron less than 1 month before or less than 1 week after Pythium oligandrum because it will kill the Pythium)
