Candida

  • Candida albicans overgrowth often occurs in the digestive tract even though it is usually considered to be what they call a 'symbiotic' or friendly - type organism when it exists in a BALANCED amount. It becomes a problem when there is TOO MUCH.
  • Unfortunately, factors such as:
    • an imbalanced diet - eating lots of sugar, wheat, refined foods and dairy products or
    • a prolonged use of broad-spectrum antibiotics and steroids
    can promote the OVERGROWTH of Candida because it is an opportunistic organism.
  • Overgrowth of potential pathogens, including Candida albicans, can lead to infection in immuno-compromised people as well.
  • Candida overgrowth leads to many symptoms and causes inflammation and impaired tissue function.

Effective Treatment to Reduce Candida Overgrowth includes:

  • Use of anti-fungal remedies:

  • Take loading doses of friendly bacteria to crowd out the excessive amounts of Candida and other fungi:

  • Remove offensive foods that promote the growth of fungus and yeast out of your diet. Follow a program that discourages Candida from growing which is low in carbohydrates. Fermented foods are recommended. These changes ought to be followed by for at least 3 months as it is extremely difficult to eradicate yeast overgrowth.
    Gail Burton's Candida Control Cookbook gives many Candida-inhibiting recipes that 'richly please the palate'. Sample and enjoy scrumptious meals that fit the dietary restrictions.


  • Add in adequate amounts of nutritional supplementation:

    Digestive Enzymes are a key factor in improving digestion:

    Essential Fatty Acids like Balanced Omega are very important for reducing inflammation and promoting good digestion.
    Serrapeptase is another excellent natural anti-inflammatory

    Goatein, a protein powder made from goat's milk, is a great substitute for cow's milk (which you ought to stay away from)


  • Overgrowth of candida, fungus and yeast causes in an excessively acid gut environment. Once you start making the changes suggested, you can monitor the changes on a daily basis with a simple litmus paper test.


  • If you're not sure you have a problem with candida overgrowth ... there's a simple home stool test from Genova lab that can confirm it for you. If the results are positive, the test results will tell you what anti-fungals are the most suitable to reduce the particular strain that you have.
