Are Candida, Thrush and Vaginal Yeast Infections Taking the Joy Out of Your Life?

Signs of Candida and Thrush

Candida and Thrush, more than any other human ailment, creeps up on you so gradually that you barely notice it. Doctors are not trained to look for it so most Candida yeast infections go undiagnosed. And before you know it, your indiscriminate use of antibiotics has caught up with you and some very life-stealing symptoms begin to occur. You begin to exhibit digestive, cardiovascular, respiratory, reproductive, lymphatic and musculo-skeletal symptoms that do not APPEAR to be related.The most effected part of your body is your BRAIN

Your memory slips, you can’t seem to make decisions easily, your energy is way down, your joints begin to ache and simple activities become more difficult. You might just chalk it up to aging. But is it?

So, What is Candida?

Candida is a group of toxic yeast-like microorganisms (Candida albicans being the most common), that live among many other organisms in the human mouth, throat, intestines and genital/urinary tract. Under normal circumstances yeast live in 80% of the human population all the time with no harmful effects, as they are in balance with other bacteria.

When the natural flora in the intestinal/digestive tract fail to control the candida yeast population, “overgrowth” occurs. Overgrowth is uncontrolled multiplication of yeast cells, resulting in various symptoms commonly termed Candidiasis or just Candida.

Candidiasis affects a wide variety of organ systems. Common examples of candida infection are vaginitis; vulvar rash; oral thrush; conjunctivitis; athlete’s foot, ringworm, jock itch, diaper rash, muscle and joint pain, canker sores, sore throat, tingling sensations, kidney and bladder infections, infections of the nail, rectum, and other skin folds, effects in the gastrointestinal tract (constipation, diarrhea, colitis, abdominal pain, gas, distension, and heartburn), depression and even diabetes.

Candida; Here is How It Works:

  • You get some kind of infection
  • Then you doctor prescribes antibiotics
  • Which wipes out the friendly bacteria and destroys your immune system
  • This allows Candida to replace the good bacteria
  • Candida gives off toxins
  • Which weakens your immune system
  • So you get an infection
  • Now the doctor orders another antibiotic
  • And around and around we go…

Candida (yeast overgrowth) is considered to be a leading contributor in:

  • alcoholism, mcs – multiple chemical sensitivities
  • cfs – chronic fatigue syndrome
  • fms – fibromyalgia syndrome
  • autism
  • crohns
  • irritable bowel
  • prostatitis
  • attention deficit disorder
  • multiple sclerosis
  • leaky gut syndrome
  • asthma
  • food allergies
  • muscle and joint pain
  • clinical depression
  • anxiety disorders
  • asthma
  • repeated urinary tract infections
  • hormonal imbalances
  • endometriosis
  • PMS
  • digestive disturbances
  • psoriasis
  • lupus
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • Addison’s disease and many more.

One of the most well known forms of yeast is the vaginal yeast infection.

“If you have ever taken antibiotics, you could possibly have Candida, a fungal
overgrowth caused by the killing-off of the good gut-flora in your intestines.”

Causes of Candida

Poor diet, an out-of-balance intestinal bacterial environment, and weakened immunity can all give rise to candida. Overuse of antibiotics destroys the natural flora in the intestines that keep the candida cells in check. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, AIDS patients, infants, diabetics and others with weakened immune systems are more susceptible to an infection of candida (candidiasis). Corticosteroids and oral contraceptives also upset the balance of intestinal flora. Yeast cells mutate, requiring ever higher dosages of Nystatin (the anti-fungal drug), so that the yeast is strengthened and the immune system further weakened.

Chronic Vaginal Yeast Infections

Chronic vaginal yeast infections are a major problem for 5% of women worldwide. The only reason a vaginal infections  becomes a recurrent yeast infection is because there is a cause that hasn’t been discovered. This is when most women find out that the medication that their doctor is prescribing is now part of the reason that the yeast infection is chronic. Once you discover the cause you can successfully cure yourself. You don’t have to put up with the itching and burning much longer. You just need to find out why your fungal infection keeps coming back.

All vaginal yeast infections have a cause, even your infection does, and all you need to do is discover the cause, and then you can treat your infection from that cause. The anti fungal cream you’re using is just treating one symptom, and that’s the itching and burning in your vagina. If you’ve been using the same treatment without success the yeast in your vagina is now resistant, and your treatment has become part of the cause. It’s making the yeast stronger because it mutates every time you apply the treatment, and it’s mutating into a super yeast that OTC creams have no effect on now.

Generally Speaking, What Diet Should You follow?

Ways of Reversing Candida

  1. Detox
    The first aim of your Candida cleanse is to cleanse the system of the toxic byproducts of Candida. Fasting, colon cleansing, wheatgrass, fresh vegetable juices, plenty of water, detox herbs, exercise, and anything else that extracts toxins.

  2. Reduce the yeast population in your system
    Candida treatment must bring yeast cells back into balance. Use anti-microbial herbs and phytochemicals in formulas from your natural or health food store that include a combination of these powerful herbs, 15 days on then 5 days off, repeating as long as needed. The 5 day break discourages mutating yeast from multiplying and developing immunity to the herbs.

  3. Inoculate yourself with probiotics

    Probiotic bacteria favorably alter the intestinal microflora balance, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. People with flourishing intestinal colonies of beneficial bacteria are better equipped to fight the growth of disease-causing bacteria. Lactobacilli and bifidobacteria, along with acidophilus (found in yogurt), maintain a healthy balance of intestinal flora by producing organic compounds (lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and acetic acid) that increase the acidity of the intestine and inhibit the reproduction of many harmful bacteria. Probiotic bacteria also produce substances called bacteriocins, which act as natural antibiotics to kill undesirable microorganisms.

  4. Improve your diet

    A diet to eliminate Candida is a long-term lifestyle – and in fact diet is your best defence against candida. Yeast loves sugar and simple carbohydrates; if you keep feeding yeast cells they will multiply, and even the best anti-microbial herbs won’t keep them in check. Eat a disciplined diet for at least 3 months, then When your symptoms disappear, you can expand your diet. But don’t revert to old habits, or the candida symptoms will quickly return.

If Candida is Under Control, What’s Next?

Keeping Candida in Check

Foods to Avoid

Aged cheeses, alcohol, chocolate, dried fruits, fresh fruits, fermented foods, mushrooms, vinegar, glutenous foods (wheat, rye, barley), all sugars, honeys and syrups (that includes any ‘ose’, like lactose, sucrose etc), and foods that contain yeast or mold (breads, muffins, cakes, baked goods, cheese, dried fruits, melons, peanuts – although nutritional and brewer’s yeasts are not harmful, as they do not colonize in the intestines).

Foods to Eat

Vegetables (including plenty of raw garlic), protein foods (beef, chicken, eggs, fish), live yogurt cultures (both dairy and non-dairy,) FOS*, whey, acidophilus, green algae (such as spirulina and chlorella), nuts, seeds and oils, and non-glutenous grains (like millet, rice, rice bran and oat bran).

 NutraSilver and Vaginal Yeast Infections

  Arrow_D says:

“I received this report from a woman who had a vaginal yeast infection and a resistant strain of fungus. It always required her to go to a doctor for a prescription treatment in the past as over the counter treatments did not work.

“This time she used NutraSilver. This is what she did:

  • Draw up one cc of non-tap water into a 3 cc syringe
  • Put water into a small non-metal cup and add 10 drops of nutrasilver
  • Draw the total up into the syringe
  • Instill with the syringe into vagina
  • Repeat 3 times a day

“It took 4 days to eliminate the yeast infection”

Lucy    April 8, 2009

“I must have gone to the Doctor 4 or 5 times and used every medicine he gave me for Candida. I was on Steroid pills, antibiotics, creams… you name it. Months went by and it just seem to get worse.”

“I finally did some research on the internet and ran across a website called NutraSilver.  I first applied it on the spots and after 4 days or so, the spots started going away. However, I had to end up covering my entire lower legs in NutraSilver® to keep the Fungus from relocating. It took about 2 full weeks to completely go away, BUT It is gone…And I am so Thankful. What a nightmare!!!!”

    Vacuuming the carpets could not decrease pet allergens. Oddly sufficient, a regular vacuum cleaner might contribute far more to someone’s allergies by kicking off dander and other allergens from the bottom of the carpet. To reduce the effects of pet allergens, use a HEPA filtered vacuum cleaner. Anti-allergen solutions are obtainable in case you do not have a HEPA vacuum. These solutions could be used on carpets to eliminate dander.
