Candida yeast overgrowth is curable.
One simply needs to heal the gut and place the yeast back in the large intestine where it belongs to. It is that simple.
To note: Candida yeast is a part of normal human microbiota, but it has the ability to become pathogenic when our immune system is compromised.
Our bodies have immense self healing abilities. That is why nobody should get discouraged by orthodox doctors’ opinions and predictions. All we need to do is free up those forces without ourselves. Normally they are used up digesting food and fighting toxins. Under the guidance of a good naturopathic doctor or nutritionist one can lead the way to a better health.
What could help to keep Candida in check:
- GAPS, Ketogenic diets including broths
- Organic produce (less pesticides and antibiotics)
- Not chlorinated water (try distilled or RO)
- Stevia and xylitol instead of sugar
- Quinoa, buckwheat, millet instead of gluten containing grains and flours (if including at all)
- Saccharomyces boulardii (yeast) as a probiotic (warning for immunocompromised individuals)
- Probiotic foods and drinks (e.g. natural sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, yogurt, kombucha)
- Pro- and pre-biotic supplements
- Psyllium seed husks
- Diatomaceous earth
- Enemas and colonics
Word of caution on herbal supplements commonly recommended for Candida sufferers: overuse of antimicrobial/antibacterial herbs can result in problems with sleep and insomnia. Healing can only happen in a well rested body.
