Naturally Eliminating Candida Albicans (Yeast Infections) From Your Body
November 21, 2011
Posted by on
Yeast infections of all types are becoming more and more prevelant, thanks to the use of antibiotics. Candida albicans infections are the most common type, and they can spread throughout your body.
When yeast overgrowth becomes excessive, it contributes to a vast array of health problems, and is responsible for many of the immune system breakdown disorders we see today.
Please read the following report for our suggestions on our suggestions of what we have experienced first- hand to be effective in combating candida albicans infections.
Causes of Candida
Everyone has small amounts of yeasts and other negative microorganisms in the intestinal tract, which, when present in the right proportion, are relatively harmless.
However, when the immune system is functioning below par, these microorganisms can multiply very rapidly and can start to spread to other areas of the body.
Normally, a healthy immune system controls candida levels.
However, certain circumstances can permit an excessive yeast overgrowth, such as high sugar consumption, prolonged use of antibiotics, elevated levels of mercury and other toxic metals in the body, the use of birth control pills, steroids, and cortisone, and excessive glucose in the bloodstream due to diabetes or insulin resistance.
Symptoms of Candida
Candida yeast overgrowth can present a wide variety of symptoms. These symptoms are usually chronic, and can include:
- food and environmental allergies
- gastrointestinal disturbances such as indigestion, heartburn, gas, bloated stomach, leaky gut syndrome, cramps, intestinal pain, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, colitis, and ulcers
- vaginal infections and menstrual difficulties
- urinary tract infections
- blood sugar disorders
- skin disorders
- environmental sensitivities
There are several good natural products that fight candida albicans yeast infections. Prescription medicines are not included in this list as they are potentially toxic, can damage the liver, and have side effects, especially when combined with other prescription medications. Some of the best natural yeast fighters on the market include:How to Eliminate Candida Albicans
Oil of oregano
Olive leaf concentrate
Grapefruit Seed Extract
You can find all of these products in a good health food store. If you decide to take these products, they should be rotated for maximum effectiveness. With these products, it normally takes six months or longer of consistent use to measurably diminish systemic candida populations, and for best results, they should be combined with a strict anti-candida diet.
A Simple Home Test
Try this simple test to see if you have a candida yeast infection:
First thing in the morning, before you put anything in your mouth, get a clear glass of water. Work up a bit of saliva, and then spit into the water. Check the water every 15 minutes or so for up to an hour. If you have a problem, you will see strings (like legs) traveling down into the water from the saliva floating on the top, or “cloudy” saliva will sink to the bottom of the glass, or cloudy specks will seem to be suspended in the water.
If there are no strings and the candida is still floating after one hour, you probably have candida under control.
