How You Can Conquer and Heal Candida

Luella May | Natural News


Candida is a common yeast-like, parasitic fungal infection which can become systemic when it spreads throughout the body and impacts bodily systems. At severe levels of infection Candida can become debilitating and even life threatening. Although mainstream medicine will tell you that Candida cannot be eliminated from the body, there are, in fact, natural ways to become candida free and keep it from returning.

Candida (Candida albicans) is actually part of the beneficial flora found in our digestive tract. Its job is to aid in digestion and absorption of nutrients. However, when there is an imbalance in the digestive system, Candida can grow and becomes a potential pathogen. Our intestines are home to 70 percent of our immune system. Healthy bacteria in the intestines keep Candida to normal levels and help keep our immune system strong. It is when unhealthy outside factors come into play that candida overpopulates and poses a threat to the body.

Factors that cause Candida overgrowth

Systemic Candida has become commonplace in the last century with the introduction of such factors as our Standard American Diet (SAD), environmental pollutants, alcohol consumption, oral contraceptives, and antibiotics.

When such unhealthy factors are introduced and disrupt the natural balance, Candida then converts to its fungal form and spreads throughout the body. This, in turn, creates toxicity, which affects every cell in the body and creates health problems.

The most frequent cause of Candida overgrowth is the recurrent or extended use of antibiotics, because antibiotics tend to wipe out the beneficial bacteria that keep Candida in check. In fact, Candida expert Dr. Jeff McCombs states that if you have taken antibiotics, you have Candida overgrowth.

One common side effect that shows the disruption of beneficial bacteria in the intestines is diarrhea. Vaginal yeast infections are also common after taking antibiotics. There are also numerous other medications which can be responsible for Candida overgrowth, such as chemotherapy and radiation.

Environmental toxins such as pesticides, herbicides, solvents, paints, formaldehyde, petrochemicals, and heavy metals also weaken the immune system and put the body at risk for. Chronic stress also weakens the immune system, paving the way for candida overgrowth.
