What is Candida And How Do I Treat It?

Below is a very simple explanation of what Candida is, and how to treat it:

*Yeasts occur naturally on or in the skin, ears and nails and they flourish inmoist, mucous membrane areas such as mouth, intestines, genitals orrectum.

We all have microorganisms or “friendly bacteria” called lactobacilli in our intestines that live along with the yeast.

Theycoexist in harmony unless the natural balance is upset by eating toomuch of certain foods, or by taking drugs such as antibiotics,hormones, and steroids.

These drugs destroy the friendly bacteria allowing the yeast ( candida albicans ) to multiply.

Toxins excreted by an overgrowth of yeast travel through the blood stream to many sites in the body.

These toxins cause a variety of respiratory, digestive and emotional symptoms and weaken the immune system.

Many people with Candida also develop adverse reactions to a wide variety of foods, chemicals and scents.

Simple Steps to Correct Yeast Overgrowth:

Decrease the amount of yeast in the body by using antifungal preparations.

Stop feeding the existing yeast by limiting the foods and drugs that cause the yeast to multiply.

Rebuild the immune system through a nutritional supplement program.

Create a non – toxic environment in your home to decrease Candida related symptoms.
