Candida Overgrowth Treatment

Candida Albicans is a single celled, fungal yeast that is impossible to keep out of the body. Normally, it does no harm, because probiotics (good gut bacteria) like acidophilus keep it in check. When probiotics are destroyed, however (by birth control pills, HRT, antibiotics, steroids, extreme stress etc), Candida can grow out of control in the gut, or even become systemic and travel throughout the body.

Candida presents problems because it produces chemicals that are toxic to the body. Testing for Candida overgrowth is problematic. Your doctor will state categorically that it does not exist as a health problem unless your are HIV positive or undergoing chemotherapy. Laboratory tests can be undertaken privately, and include a stool test; saliva antibody test; and blood antibody test. None of theses tests are 100% conclusive. A test that is doing the rounds on the internet is the ‘spit test’ This has no basis in science, and is completely useless as a diagnostic tool.

We have been through Candida overgrowth issues ourselves, and have been helping sufferers for the past fifteen years, so we have a more helpful and enlightened approach.

If you have been to your doctor regarding having a candida overgrowth, you have probably been faced with one of the following:

  • Been laughed out of the surgery.
  • Been prescribed anti depressants.
  • Been told that such a condition does not exist.
  • Been told that you just have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).
  • Been told that there is nothing wrong with you at all.
  • Been prescribed an anti fungal for Thrush if you have it.

Overview of Candida

Candida Albicans is a single celled, fungal yeast that is impossible to keep out of the body. Normally, it does no harm, because probiotics (good gut bacteria) like acidophilus keep it in check. When probiotics are destroyed, however (by birth control pills, HRT, antibiotics, steroids, extreme stress etc…), Candida can grow out of control in the gut, or even become systemic and travel throughout the body. Candida presents problems because it produces chemicals that are toxic to the body.

Symptoms of Candida Overgrowth

How do you know if you are suffering from Candida overgrowth? Typical symptoms may include cravings for sugary foods, lack of concentration, mood swings, skin rashes, irritable bowel syndrome, fungal infections and, in women, thrush.

If you are unsure whether or not you have Candida overgrowth, we can email you a questionnaire which can indicate if you do suffer from it. Taking your answers to this questionnaire, we then cross reference seven of your answers with a separate questionnaire to give a 95% reliable answer.

Naturally Treat Candida Overgrowth

Most conventional doctors do not recognise that there is a problem caused by Candida overgrowth unless in the severely immuno-compromised such as HIV AIDS patients.

Mainstream treatments include:

  • Nystatin – This is a prescription drug that inhibits the fungal cell wall. The die off effects can make one feel quite ill; it does have an effect on the liver, and candida is now quite resistant to it.
  • Diflucan (fluconazole) – is useful but pricey.
  • Nizoral (ketoconazole) – is useful, but has accompanying liver toxicity. Best to get liver function tested whilst using it.

Complementary treatments include:

  • Garlic and garlic oil and extracts;
  • Grapefruit seed extract;
  • Olive leaf extract;
  • Berberine;
  • Pau d’arco;
  • Tea tree oil;
  • Caprylic acid.

These will give die-off effects, and should be rotated on a regular basis so that the Candida does not become resistant to them.
