TAG | Yeast Organism

Do you experience gas and bloating, brain fog, muscle aches and pains, and fatigue? Did you know these symptoms might be caused by a very common yeast organism found in the human body called Candida albicans? Candida overgrowth is a condition that can lead to any number of symptoms and ailments. Although many Americans suffer from this widespread condition, it is often overlooked due to the refusal of mainstream medicine to fully acknowledge candida overgrowth as a cause of more serious health issues.

STEPS TO ADDRESS CANDIDIASIS

1. IDENTIFY AND TREAT.
Use an effective, natural herbal cleansing formula to treat Candida and parasites.

2. CHANGE YOUR DIET.
Avoid alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, dairy products, sugar, and foods that are high in carbohydrates.

3. INCREASE FIBER INTAKE.
When adding more fiber to your diet, be sure to consume a healthy balance of approximately 75% insoluble fiber to 25% soluble (water-soluble) fiber.

4. REPLACE INTESTINAL FLORA.
Maintain a healthy bacteria balance in the digestive tract with a daily probiotic supplement that includes Acidophilus and Bifidobacteria.

5. AVOID RAW VEGETABLES.
Eat lightly steamed vegetables, fish, and lean protein.

6. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER.
Drink at least half your body weight in ounces of purified water each day (For example, a 120-pound person would require 60 ounces of water daily).

7. TRY COLON HYDROTHERAPY.
In contrast to a traditional enema, colon hydrotherapy involves repeated infusions of filtered, warm water into the colon to help tone the bowel and promote healthy elimination.

Ah, the dreaded vaginal yeast infection. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, about 75 percent of all women will have one at some point during their lives, and nearly half of those women will have two or more. But what causes this most uncomfortable of conditions? The answer may surprise you.

The majority of all vaginal yeast infections are caused by a microscopic yeast organism called Candida albicans. Although naturally present in a healthy vagina, Candida albicans can cause problems when certain factors—such as stress, antibiotic use, a high-sugar diet, illness and hormonal changes—upset the healthy balance of good and bad bacteria in the vagina and allow the opportunistic yeast to grow out of control. When that happens, it can cause uncomfortable symptoms such as itching and irritation, vaginal discharge, painful urination, and more.

Because Candida albicans thrives on sugary, processed foods, preventing vaginal yeast overgrowth begins with following a healthy, low-sugar diet. Increasing your fiber intake through foods and natural fiber supplements is also recommended, as fiber helps to nourish the beneficial vaginal bacteria (called probiotics) that work to crowd out harmful yeast organisms. Finally, taking a daily probiotic supplement with a high Lactobacilli count can help maintain a balanced internal environment, since Lactobacilli are the most prevalent good bacteria in a healthy vagina and urinary tract.
