The Causes of Candida
Candida can be caused by a variety of factors. Most often, a diet high in simple sugars, overuse of antibiotics and a weakened immune system are the culprits. Oral contraceptives, hormone replacements and corticosteroids can also upset the balance of healthy gut bacteria, which may help candida to grow.*
Natural Solutions for Candida -- The Whole Body Approach
The good news is, candida can be combated with natural solutions. A whole body approach, including diet, lifestyle and supplements, can help you retain a healthy balance.*
Cleanse your system
First you must detox your system of the toxic byproducts of candida. Drinking wheatgrass juice, flushing your system with plenty of water, fasting, sweating or doing a colon cleanse can help.*
Biotin is an essential nutrient often deficient in candida sufferers. It may help interrupt the cycle of candida growth.*
Get on a regular regimen of probiotics
Probiotics are the healthy gut flora that can keep candida in check. Good quality formulas contain strains of acidophilus and bifidus.*
Change your diet
Fighting candida takes a long-term approach. Falling back into the same dietary habits will not solve your candida issue over the long run. In general, once you have resolved your candida issues, it is a good idea to limit or avoid foods including sugar in all its forms, yeast products-including bread, beer and wine-fruits and juices, dairy products, fast foods, condiments, leftover foods that may have mold, processed meats and fermented products. The best foods to eat are low-carbohydrate vegetables (not high carbohydrate ones such as potatoes, corn and carrots), lean proteins and limited amounts of whole grains.
With the right combination of supplements, diet and lifestyle choices, you can support and maintain a healthy balance friendly flora in your body, which can strengthen your immune system and help you maintain good health.*
