Do you think you may have Candida?
Candida Albicans – here’s the scoop you need to know.
I remember back in the early days of Ecology Medical Clinic, which was the predecessor to Ecology Health Center, Dr.Truss had just recently published his then controversial opinion about what he called ‘systemic candidiasis’. In that we had been working in the realm of ‘functional medicine’ yes, way ahead of our time – every patient who came in to the clinic had an evaluation with several practitioners, the medical doctor, an acupuncturist, a homeopath, an allergy specialist and if needed a holistic dentist. Collectively, we came up with an evaluation and treatment plan for each individual.
The correct CPT diagnosis code to be used for many of our patients was Systemic Candidiasis. The patients’ insurance was billed and pretty soon we were flooded with many rejections from the insurance companies saying that systemic candidiasis would not be covered in the light of the review of the patients’ chart notes. To the insurance companies, at that time, this diagnosis would refer to people on their deathbeds, covered from head to toe with incurable fungal overgrowth.
A lot has changed since the 80’s. Candida is still something that many physicians choose to ignore as a true condition however, for those of us involved in complementary medicine, this is an important part of any differential diagnosis, particularly because the symptoms associated with candida overgrowth covers many systems within the body from brain fog and headaches, to bloating and vaginal infections – you name it, it can possibly be that those symptoms all over their bodies, all relate to overgrowth of yeast in the body.
Patients have an extremely hard time overcoming candida for many reasons.
Firstly, how severe is it? In other words, how diligent do you have to be to get rid of it. And secondly, what methods are you going to use to get it under control? The second question opens up a huge can of worms because each practitioner that the patient consults with will tell them something different.
Who are they to believe? And then, the truth be told, even I, as a ‘seasoned’ candida treatment coordinator, may use several different approaches and choice of treatment protocols, depending on the individual patient.
One of the challenges with herbal and nutritional options is that some strains of yeast will respond better to certain anti fungals than others, and of course certain individuals will do better with herbs than others, again depending on the first question I posed, ie how severe is the condition.
One approach that I use consistently and find very reliable is using homeopathic remedies as part of the treatment protocol. King Bio has formulated a protocol using 4 combinations homeopathic remedies that are very effective. It goes hand in hand with people literally confirming their own diagnosis by taking the Candida Overgrowth Appraisaland the Saliva Test to find out if you have the telltale signs of Candida overgrowth. The Saliva test was shown on Dr Oz’s show, on May 28, 2013. Even he thinks it is a valuable tool to assess candida overgrowth. You can tell how much I admire Dr Oz, right?
So yes, you do the test, and the assessment and follow through with the remedies based on what you find out. Then you redo the test and continue with the protocol of using the 4 combination remedies, based on the test results and how you feel.
Many symptoms of Candida overgrowth are addressed by King Bio’s Aquaflora homeopathic remedies, These include yeast infections, thrush, nail fungus, confusion, headache, dizziness, indigestion, fatigue, bloating, food cravings, stomach pain, and skin irritations.
What homeopathic remedies do is activate the body’s natural healing powers by following the law of similars, which says that “like cures like.” Even today, this is considered a recognized pharmacological principle.
Why do I like using Homeopathics? They are very safe. You know that in the 200 odd years of clinical use, homeopathic medicines have no recorded negative side effects and also no negative interactions with other drugs. In fact, homeopathic s were the first of all natural remedies to be recognized by the FDA as pharmaceutical drug products.
Here are the four Aquaflora, King Bio Candida remedies:
1. High Potency 9 – this is a broad-spectrum remedy used for Candida balance and relief of yeast overgrowth, headaches & cravings. Dr. Frank King thinks that this the foundational product for Candida balance.
2. Enzyme Restoration. This combination is used for upper GI balance from the mouth to the stomach. It focuses on relieving unpleasant digestive symptoms like heartburn, vomiting, colic, reflux burping, acid indigestion etc.
3. Probiotic Restoration. This one is used primarily for balancing the lower GI tract, from the stomach to the bowels. The remedy may also be used between meals to ease bloating, nausea, cramps, diarrhea and constipation.
4. Heavy Metal Detox. This homeopathic combination targets heavy metal toxicity, which often accompanies Candida overgrowth. It provides relief for symptoms like a metallic taste in the mouth, fatigue, and also confusion.
I like using this particular remedy combination from King Bio. They use multiple ingredients in multiple potencies. The clinically-proven ingredients and potencies are able to minimize negative side effects and quickly bring the body back into balance.
It’s interesting to note that High Potency 9 includes remedies that provide emotional support as well. Included are 3 flower remedies that help balance the feeling of well-being during the healing process. I love the way they are made as well. All the remedies have no dairy, no sugar, no alcohol and no gluten. and of course, no refrigeration is necessary. The remedies are also Bio-Energetically Enhanced™, taste-free and made in a pure water base. The pleasant, neutral flavor is a great asset when treating kids. It eliminates any resistance from finicky children. It also caters to taste-sensitive adults.
3 of the 4 recommended homeopathics formulas have a Unique spray delivery system. The 2-ounce oral spray bottles are very convenient to use. You’re able to control dosage and easily use for people of all ages, eliminating the need for dropper bottles or tablets.
I might add, at this point, that I have never found a way to successfully treat candida overgrowth without a conscientious change in eating patterns at the same time.
