Prayer To Find The Root Of My Health Problem
Candida: The Root to Many Health Problems
Candida is enemy #1 for me. It has been my personal health battle for years.
I was so many of you, struggling with health issues that no doctor could figure out.
I was constantly bloated, constipated, exhausted, my brain was foggy and all I wanted to eat was sugar and carbohydrates.
It took me a few years to diagnose myself, even after entering the world of natural health. I was experiencing all the telltale signs of systemic Candida.
Once getting rid of the Candida, my symptoms disappeared and I felt a new person.
However, if I am not diligent and spend a weekend eating desserts, Candida tries very hard to sneak back up on me. But you too can find the root of your Candida problem.
By getting rid of the plaguing Candida symptoms, you will feel a new person again.
The Silent Epidemic
One in three Americans have systemic Candida. But most have absolutely no idea what is causing their wearying symptoms. I have a file full of clients that struggle with Candida.
Women are the majority of those who deal with Candida, but many men do, as well. I have actually gotten to the point where I am surprised when a client doesn’t have Candida.
Truly, it has become nothing short of an epidemic and, unfortunately, a silent one.Candida could also be disguised as picky eating, rashes, warts, dry skin, constipation and even bed wetting.
Do you suffer from any of these symptoms?
- Sinus issues
- Urinary infections
- Digestive problems
- Joint pain
Chances are very real that you may struggle with Candida, a chronic yeast infection. Candida is rarely talked about in mainstream medicine.
Unless it manifests as a vaginal yeast infection or thrush (a rash on the tongue, mouth or throat), you may not know that you have a Candida infection.
But Candida is often a source of other health issues, causing everything from weight gain to migraines.
What is Candida Exactly?
Candida starts out in the body as a simple sugar fermenting yeast. It is naturally found in the human intestine in small amounts.
It aids with nutrient absorption and digestion when in proper levels in the body. But in some people it can grow control.
If given the right conditions, it can turn into a fungus that produces something called rhizoids.
Rhizoids are long, root structures that can penetrate the intestinal walls, allowing particles, bacteria, and yeast (including Candida) to pass through from the gut into the bloodstream. This releases by-product toxins and other toxins from your system, causing leaky gut syndrome.
Typically, our friendly bacteria keep Candida in check. However, antibiotics, birth control pills, sugar, and even stress can throw the whole intestinal flora system balance. Candida is most prevalent in the vaginal canal, gastrointestinal tract and your mouth.
How do you know if you have a Candida infection? It’s important to know because now scientists are linking Candida to all kinds of conditions and diseases. This is far more serious than most people think.
The good news? If you test positive, there’s a natural strategy you can use to cure yourself of this scourge.
Identifying whether or not you suffer from Candida is a great first step on the road to overcoming your health issues.
Let’s get started.
How to Know if YOU Have Candida
Candida can be found several ways. The first is via lab work on your saliva, feces and hair.
In my practice, I offer both saliva and feces kits that test for an overgrowth of Candida. I also use hair mineral analysis, which tests the ratios of minerals present in the tissues. An imbalance of certain minerals can be a sign of Candida.
Honestly, I feel these tests are rarely necessary. With the prevalence of Candida and its easy-to-identify symptoms and causes, it’s not hard to spot a Candida candidate.
There are two very simple and easy ways to check for Candida.
- Candida questionnaires
- The spit test
There are many questionnaires you can take that will give you an idea whether or not you are a candidate for Candida. However, these questionnaires are not foolproof. You could fail the questionnaire and still have Candida. If you need further confirmation, then you’ll want to use lab work.
Dr. William Crook, author of the famed book about Candida, The Yeast Connection, created one of the shorter, but still very accurate questionnaire testsHave you taken repeated or prolonged courses of antibiotics?
- Have you been bothered by recurrent vaginal, prostate or urinary infections?
- Do you feel “sick all over,” yet the cause has not been found?
- Are you bothered by hormone disturbances, including PMS, menstrual irregularities, sexual dysfunction, sugar cravings, low body temperature or fatigue?
- Are you unusually sensitive to tobacco smoke, perfumes and colognes, and chemical odors?
- Are you bothered by memory or concentration problems? Do you sometimes feel spaced out or in a brain fog?
- Have you taken prolonged courses of prednisone or other steroids, or have you taken birth control pills for more than three years?
- Do some foods disagree with you or trigger your symptoms?
- Do you suffer with constipation, diarrhea, bloating or abdominal pain?
- Does your skin itch, tingle, or burn; or is it unusually dry; or, do rashes bother you?
- Do you have regular headaches or migraines?
If you answered yes to many of these questions, then you are most ly to be struggling with Candida.
The Spit Test
Many practitioners recommend the “spit test” to get an idea of whether or not someone has Candida. It only requires a glass of water and saliva.
- Fill a clear glass with clean water and place it beside your bed at night.
- In the morning, immediately spit in the glass before brushing your teeth or drinking or eating anything.
- Note how the saliva looks.
- Check back in 2 minutes and again in 3 minutes.
Healthy saliva will float on the top and eventually dissolve into the water without any cloudiness or sinking. There may be some bubbles and foam.
Candida saliva may have strings that go down the glass, cloudy saliva that sinks or cloudy specks that float. See the image for a good visual.
The Battle of Overcoming Candida
Although you can’t totally eliminate Candida in your body, you can keep it under control.
I have concluded that once someone struggles with Candida, they must always be careful. I have a file full of personal testimonies to prove it. Candida is not something that you get rid of and continue eating sweets and carbs. Candida will be fed by bad habits, eventually multiply and take over.
2 Steps: Starve it and Kill it
The best way to get rid of Candida is to both to starve it and kill it. Just starving Candida takes too long. Trying to kill Candida while still feeding it is pointless. You must do both.
The Candida diet is the best way to starve Candida. Essentially, it is a diet that cuts out the main foods that feed Candida: carbohydrates and fermented foods. The Candida diet consists of:
- No sugar of any sort
- Limited grains
- No fermented foods or drinks
My favorite website for the diet is www.thecandidadiet.com. It also contains great recipes that won’t leave you feeling so deprived.
Following this diet is often the most difficult thing for people in their journey to get their health back from Candida. The results are amazing and make it worth the challenge.
The first 3-5 days are typically the most challenging. Candida is starving and tells your body it NEEDS to be fed. But once those first few days are over, you will begin to feel a new sense of well-being.
You have essentially begun to take your body back!
Crucial Supplements in Killing Candida
Natural antifungals work best at keeping the Candida fungus under control. Thankfully, there are many to choose from. Here’s a list of my favorite Candida-killingnatural antifungals.
The Root Cause Of Your Problem Is Condemnation | Joseph Prince Ministries
This message is a reminder to all of us who have been listening to the gospel of grace for some time now. The Lord is revealing to us the secret to living a transformed life. It’s time for us to remove all the buttons in our lives that the devil constantly presses. Let’s get to the deepest root that causes all our problems.
Recently, the Lord told me, “Son, what I showed you some time ago—that condemnation kills—it’s time to take it seriously. You’ve been preaching to the church about the dangers of stress, but there’s a deeper root than stress.”
Your Problems Are Not The Root
My friend, when you go through an evil day, you are a sickly plant with sick leaves. You may have leaves of sickness, poverty, a broken marriage or depression in your life.
But these are just the leaves. These are just the manifestations of the root. It would be foolish to attack the leaves because they are not the cause of your problems.
We all know that there’ll be no leaf if there is no root.
Even the world knows that and many people in medical science are beginning to realize that there is a root to sickness. In fact, a study by a well-known medical facility showed that about 70 per cent of all sicknesses are due to stress.
Condemnation—The Deepest Root Of All
Now, the deeper root of stress is fear. All stress is caused by fear—fear of failing, fear of not having enough, fear of death and so on. But that’s as far as medical science can go. They cannot touch the deepest root because it is spiritual.
And the deepest root of all is condemnation.
When there’s condemnation, there’ll be fear. When there’s fear, there’s going to be stress. And when there’s stress, there’ll be manifestations of the curse.
Now, if you disagree with me that the root cause is condemnation, let me refer you to Genesis, the book of beginnings.Do you know that Adam was planted in the midst of a finished work? Everything was prepared for him.
But the devil told him that he needed to do something to qualify for all the things he had already qualified for. The devil gave him a mistaken identity. He said, “You will not surely die.
For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be God, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:4–5)
The truth is that Adam was already God! But Adam believed the devil, ate the fruit and fell. And the curse came.
Before there was poverty, sickness and death in Adam’s life, there was stress. How do we know that? Well, God said, “In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread…” (Genesis 3:19) And sweat speaks of stress and self-effort.
But if you go deeper, you will find that there was fear. Do you know what Adam said to God when God asked him where he was? He said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.” (Genesis 3:10) Adam was afraid. He was fearful. So the deeper root of stress is fear. But before he was fearful, he felt condemned.
The Law Condemns
Why did Adam feel condemned? It was because he partook of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It was not even the tree of evil or the tree of sin. So what does the tree of the knowledge of good and evil speak of? How did it cause Adam to sin?
My friend, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is a picture of the law because the law gives us the knowledge of good and evil. The Bible says, “…by the law is the knowledge of sin.” (Romans 3:20) Contrary to popular opinion, God did not give the law for man to live by or to make man holy. God gave the law so that we know we’re sinners and we see our need for a Savior.
Now, we know that the law brings about the knowledge of sin. But what happens when you have the knowledge of sin? You will feel condemned. So from now on, when you think of the law, think of condemnation. Don’t think of the law as doing right or not doing wrong because God did not give us the law for that purpose. The law condemns. (2 Corinthians 3:7–9)
The Devil’s Tactics And Weaponry
You might ask, “Pastor Prince, what has the law got to do with my problems?”
My friend, our enemy the devil is smarter than many psychiatrists, psychologists and even many believers. He does not deal with the peripherals and the superficial. Do you know what his first name is? It is not “thief” or “murderer”, even though he steals and murders. His first name is Satan, which is Hebrew for “prosecutor at law” or “accuser”.
Do you know what the role of a prosecutor is in the court of law? He is there to prosecute you and condemn you. He never talks about your good points. He will bring up all the dirty laundry and relentlessly accuse you till you feel condemned.
So the devil’s name tells us that he goes straight to the root of your problems. He doesn’t come to you and say, “Let your business slide” or “Neglect your children”.On the contrary, he comes to say things , “How can you let the business slide?” or “Call yourself a Christian! Call yourself a good father. You’re a lousy father!” He accuses you till you feel condemned. And he uses the law, which is holy, good and just, to condemn you.
That is why condemnation—the root cause of all your problems—is so subtle. That is why condemnation usually goes undetected.
I have realized that the devil hasn’t changed his tactics even with a church ours where I preach so strongly against condemnation.
Do you know why? Because he has no other tactic! He has no other weapon! The devil cannot enforce the curse in your life apart from condemnation. The devil cannot make you sick apart from condemnation.
You have to cooperate with him and receive the condemnation first.
God Disarmed The Devil At The Cross
Having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
The good news is that God disarmed the devil at the cross.
God took his only weapon—the law—and He nailed it to the cross! Yes, God has triumphed over the devil and all his demonic principalities and powers! That’s why I often tell the church that we are not fighting for victory. We are fighting from victory. The victory is already ours through the finished work of Christ at the cross.
The Key To No Condemnation
The fact that you can feel condemned is proof that you have a heart of flesh, not a heart of stone. (Ezekiel 11:19, 36:26) It is proof that you are truly born again. What, then, is the key to getting your evil day? What is the key to no condemnation in your life?
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.
The only place where you find no condemnation is in Christ Jesus.
The word “therefore” connects Romans 8:1 to the previous verses in Romans 7, where Paul talked about how he was condemned by the law that he knew so well.
The reason there is therefore now no condemnation, is that God loved us so much that He gave us His Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. Jesus came and He was condemned for our sins at the cross. When He hung on the cross, God took all our sins of our entire lives, and He heaped them on Jesus.
Then He unleashed the vengeance of His fury against lawlessness and sin on the body of Jesus Christ until Jesus cried, “It is finished!” The reason that you and I experience no condemnation today is that all our sins have been punished and condemned, but in the body of another—in the body of Jesus Christ!
What It Means To Overcome The Devil By The Blood Of The Lamb
Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
Many Christians know that we overcome the devil by the blood of the Lamb. We know that there is power in the blood of Christ. But what is it about Jesus’ blood that makes it so powerful?
Now, what did Jesus say of the blood when He instituted the Lord’s Supper? He said, “For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” (Matthew 26:28)
The blood is for the forgiveness of sins! The blood is there to ensure that you live in no condemnation! That is what makes it so powerful!Notice also what is said in verse 10, “…for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.” The devil is called the accuser of the brethren.
And he relentlessly accuses God’s people day and night.
But the good news is that he has been cast down! He has been defeated! The moment he has no power to accuse, salvation, strength, the kingdom of God and the power of Christ will manifest in your life!
Do Not Respond To The Accuser
Some of you might say, “Pastor Prince, I have no problem with this root. I don’t feel condemned.”
My friend, you will be surprised. Condemnation is very subtle, especially if you are a person who believes in doing what’s right. Continue to do what’s right, but do not respond to the accuser. When you choose not to respond to him, he cannot condemn you. The root cause of all your problems is destroyed, and you will come to the place of no condemnation in your life.

A Prayer for Health
Daily life is littered with all sorts of sickness. Flu season hit my household this week, and according to the CDC, most of United States is in the midst of a “high activity” flu season. One does not realize the luxury of the average day until it’s besieged and de-railed by influenza. Life comes to a pause, and workloads pile up.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that one in four adults had one or more chronic health conditions in 2012.
Discouragement that leads to a depressive state cannot be categorized as a “it will never happen to me” notion. Mental health is an astronomical concern in this country.
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, one in five adults in the US experience mental illness in a given year.
“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” (3 John 1:2)
If our bodies and minds are ailing at such a high rate, it shouldn’t surprise us that our spiritual lives are unhealthy as well. LifeWay Research released a report in April of 2017 that states “more than half of Americans have read little or none of the Bible.” Though we don’t have full control over flu germs, depression, and terminal disease, we can choose to read Scripture daily.
Let’s pray for complete health, mind, body and soul. To seek His counsel in all things, and welcome the wisdom of the Holy Spirit into the part of our hearts that need healing. A healthy life is comprised of more than a fit physically body free of injury and illness.
A Prayer for Complete, Good Health
Praise You for this, and every day that we get to wake up this side of heaven. Each day is laced with purpose, and we ask for Your wisdom and guidance through every one. Help us to live each day well, and for Your glory, from start to finish.
Thank You for Your Word, which breathes life into our tired souls and minds. You promise to meet us there, in study and prayer. Thank You for the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, paying with His life for our ease of access to our Heavenly Father through prayer and Scripture. Each biblical story and truth weave in and out our lives in Your perfect timing.
Father, You remind us throughout Scripture that You are faithful to Your people.
Jeremiah 33:6 says, “Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.
” So often, as in the Old Testament, we rebel, neglect to care for ourselves as You do, and end up tired and sick. But Father You are faithful to enwrap us in Your healing love each time we turn back to You.
Forgive us for neglecting to care for the life You have entrusted us with. The life that You have purposed specifically to do more than we can ask for or imagine. When we go our own way, we wear ourselves down, physically and mentally. Other times, we train physically but neglect our psyche. We often neglect our spiritual life.
Father, strengthen us to hold captive the joy You bless our lives with daily. Help us to walk freely in Your love.
For as Paul reminds us in 1 Timothy 4:8 (VOICE), “Although training your body has certain payoffs, godliness benefits all things–holding promise for life here and now and promise for the life that is coming.
” Send us more of Your Holy Spirit, to help us focus on Your Word daily. Give us hearts Jesus.
Give us the wisdom to seek You first each day, before each decision. It’s often the little thoughts and daily decisions that lead us into a sudden spiral of bad health. Enlighten us and guide us through Your Word. Let our hearts burn for more of You each day.Help us endure the pain of chronic conditions, some of which will not find healing in this broken and sinful world. We know that You work all things for good, but in those moments of chronic pain and suffering, it can be impossible to understand Your perfect and just hand in it all.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Stop Fixing the Symptoms…Find the Root Cause Instead
You are feeling sick and your stomach hurts.
“Oh no. I’m getting sick again. I’ve had enough with these issues with my stomach.”
Then you pick up the phone and make a call to your doctor, explaining that you are not feeling well and that you need help. You are fortunate enough to be able to set up a quick appointment with your doctor and you go in to see him right away.
After the doctor’s appointment, you start feeling better. Your doctor gave you a bunch of pills to cure your stomach pain and you begin to feel relieved and satisfied.
Unfortunately, the next week this same stomach issue returns and you are back to the doctor – with another prescription for medicine for your pains. When this happens, you start to feel you are living in a real-life version of Groundhog Day — just Bill Murray
But this is happening in real life, not in a movie.
Focus on a wrong part of the problem
This is a classic example of a case where you thought you were focusing on the true cause of a problem (seeking help to get relief for a stomach ache), but instead, your doctor ended up just fixing the symptoms (giving just a bunch of pills for the pain).
Since only the symptoms were fixed, the root cause of the problem was never diagnosed. Thus, it still existed.
For instance, if the doctor had done a proper check up with you, he’d have sent him to do some further investigation. That, in turn, could have revealed that the stomach ache was caused by an allergy, celiac disease, or even appendicitis.
Since the proper cause was never investigated, you are now running around in circles, wasting your time on the wrong diagnosis and stressing yourself out about what may really be causing your health issues.
But let’s move away from this hypothetical you to the “real” you.
Are you afraid to unlock the door?
Fixing symptoms is easy. It doesn’t require that much effort on our part and we feel relief very soon afterward. Unfortunately, this kind of “fixing” is cheating yourself.
But why do we to “cheat” ourselves this way?
First, we may not be fully aware of the real situation at all. We think that the symptom is nothing serious and in many cases this is the case. But since your attitude is this, you feel no additional action is required.
Then, even if we think that there is something bigger going on on the background, we are still reluctant to take action. This could be because the symptoms are not so serious and you think that your situation is not a big deal – you can handle it.
You may also be procrastinating on finding out the true cause; this could be a sign of fear. You are just plain afraid to find out what is really going on.
In fact, fear is often the biggest reason we are held back. If it’s health issues you are facing, you are afraid to face the unpleasant truth (which could be the discovery of something serious going on if you dig too deep).
Still, the problem remains — as do the symptoms — as long as you are not taking any initiative to find out the true root cause.
Shift your focus
Finding the root cause requires persistence. If you visited a top doctor in his or her field, they might have difficulties figuring out the real cause of your problems. Because of that you’d have to go through of a lot of laboratory tests to find the root cause.
Finding (and fixing) the root cause requires action on your part as well. If you are experiencing the same symptoms over and over again, then you have to take action to learn more about those things (and not just take them as-is).
There is going to be some courage required when you go after the root cause. Especially if this is a health-related issue. In that case, you have to be willing to find out the real cause.
On the other hand, if your car is making a funny noise when you drive, not that much courage is required. Just a willingness to take action and get your car fixed.
Fix the issue for good!
If you face a recurring problem, take these steps to take care of them:
- Acknowledge. It all starts by acknowledging your situation. Ask yourself: “Is this same issue occurring again and again or is it just a random issue?” If your answer is “yes”, you are just facing a random issue, which is most ly nothing more serious. However, if the symptoms are coming back again and again, you have a problem on your hands.
- Shift your focus. When you realize that you have a recurring problem, make a decision to find its root cause. Don’t settle for easy fixes or quick solutions. When you settle, you’ll most ly wind up returning back to the original problem since it wasn’t taken care of in the first place.
- Feel encouraged. Finding out the root cause can be scary. You will never know what you are going to find and what is going to happen next. On the other hand, don’t you think it is better to find out the true cause, instead of assuming something and pretending everything is okay? Besides, once you tackle the root cause, the rest of the symptoms are going to disappear (depending of the issue, of course).
- Take action. Make that call to your doctor. Take your car to the repair shop. Just take action! Problems cannot be solved without activity on your part and the sooner that you take action, the better.
- Never give up. Sometimes it may take a long time to find out the root cause of your problem. However, you shouldn’t give up. At the end of the day, knowing the true root cause can make you feel better – even if the truth may not be pleasant. And if the root cause doesn’t come to you right away, just take a breather and continue. You will find the cause (and the possible solution) at some point if you keep searching for it.
If we focus on just fixing the symptoms, we are wasting our time and energy. Instead, we should shift our focus from fixing symptoms to finding a root cause and fixing that instead. And although finding the root cause may require courage and persistence, it is the only true way of fixing the problems you are facing for good.
What steps do you take to find the root cause? How do you handle the fear that is associated with finding the root cause? Share your ideas and experiences in the comment area below.
