Candida Yeast Treatment

Candida or yeast overgrowth is a fungus in the digestive system. Many species of candida are found in the gut, but some such as candida albicans, can cause infection, especially in patients with a compromised immune system or those taking antibiotics or birth control pills. A healthy immune system is essential to healing.

Candida, or Candida-related complex (CRC) is often overlooked or misunderstood by many practitioners. Yet, it is only one of a multitude of unhealthy contaminants of the intestinal tract that may contribute to chronic illness or impede healing. Since 80% of the immune system is in the gut, it is important to restore your gut to healthy flora levels and get back on the path to wellness.

Beyond the Yeast Connection

There is a relationship between candida and candida-related-complex as an impediment to healing and its role in chronic illness. The symptoms of candida may be subtle or mimic other conditions but since Candida-related complex compromises the immune system one may experience a multitude of symptoms.

Candida may be the underlying cause of many chronic conditions such as:

  • Acne, skin rash, severe diaper rash, fungal infections of the nails/ skin, psoriasis, cradle cap
  • Headaches, brain fog, irritability, depression, forgetfulness
  • Hay fever, rhinitis, asthma, sinsusitis
  • Scleroderma
  • Hashimoto's disease
  • Bloating after meals
