WHAT IS CANDIDA?
You might be thinking, What on earth is candida? There are many symptoms related to candida overgrowth, affecting both, men and women.
The Candida albicans yeast is one member of a community of hundreds of microorganisms that exist in delicate balance in the human intestinal tract. Under normal conditions only a small number of Candida organisms live in our intestines. A healthy colon contains about 85% friendly bacteria and 15% pathogens such as Candida. As a result of poor nutrition and modern lifestyles, many of us now may have the opposite ratio in our intestines: 15% supportive microorganisms and 85% harmful.
Candida overgrowth (called candidiasis) can contribute to a wide variety of health problems such as bloating, intestinal disturbances, diarrhea, fatigue and vaginal discharge. However, the presence of one or many of these symptoms does not indicate a definite diagnosis of Candidiasis. As Candida is a normal inhabitant of the gastrointestinal tract, it is difficult to diagnose. Malnutrition, glandular imbalances, allergies, parasites and mercury, fluoride or lead toxicity are some of the other conditions that can mimic Candidiasis. In fact, Candida overgrowth often accompanies these problems, but may not be the cause.
What Causes Candidiasis?
In a healthy intestinal tract, populations of friendly intestinal bacteria like L. acidophilus keep Candida in check. Unfortunately, modern living is antagonistic to intestinal balance, including antibiotic, corticosteroids, oral contraceptive use, chemical pollution, nutritional deficiencies, chlorinated water, preservatives, high sugar intake, chronic constipation and stress. All these factors contribute to Candidiasis either by feeding the yeast, stressing the immune system, or killing the “friendly bacteria.” Poor diet can also instigate Candidiasis. Sugar, alcohol, and refined flour are “super foods” for candida yeast.
It’s Time to Listen to Your Body
You need not let Candida interfere with your health. To conquer intestinal yeast overgrowth, there are four things you must do:
- Kill excess yeast in the colon and eliminate its fertile breeding grounds.
- Re-establish a healthy balance of intestinal flora.
- Adopt a diet that starves Candida, but nourishes your body.
- Strengthen your immune system, restoring its natural ability to fend off harmful organisms.
However, before starting any anti-Candida program, get a thorough physical checkup to identify any other conditions that may require treatment as well. Generally, health practitioners use a questionnaire as a guide to the likelihood of Candida involvement. Patients with positive scores need to be put on an anti-Candida regimen.
The Anti-Candida Diet
Diet plays a large role in the development of Candidiasis, so a modification in the diet is essential whether your condition is mild or severe. The specific dietary guidelines are detailed and appear challenging for some individuals; however, the single greatest part of the diet is elimination of simple sugars. While dietary changes are often the hardest part of an anti-candida program, your determination and strong desire to get better should overcome these obstacles.
What is the solution if you have candidiasis or if you want a good natural digestive cleansing?
The YEAST BUSTER® Candida Kit from Innovite Health includes four very effective products:
- PSYLLIUM Blend
- CAPROIL antifungal liquid
- Licorice in Activated CHARCOAL and
- DDS Acidophilus Probiotic capsules
The products in this kit are mixed together to form a high fibre antifungal drink that helps clear excess yeast out of the intestines. The drink is prepared by combining the PSYLLIUM, Licorice in Activated CHARCOAL, and CAPROIL in the shaker supplied with the kit and mixing with water or diluted fruit juice. The DDS ACIDOPHILUS is taken at a separate time, preferably at bedtime.
Why does the Yeast Buster Kit work so well?
As the PSYLLIUM-Licorice in activated CHARCOAL-CAPROIL mixture passes through the intestines, it thickens into an absorbent gel. This gel acts like an absorbent scrub brush in the bowel. The movements of the intestines turn it around and around, forcing it against the sides of the intestines, where it scrubs Candida away and soaks up toxins for easy elimination.
