To treat candida we need to address the underlying root cause, not just the symptoms that are present.
Symptoms can range from itchy skin, acne, asthma, fatigue, sugar cravings, hair loss and skin rashes to name a few. It also causes digestive issues.
Have you seen a health practitioner? Maybe you are looking for a home remedy. If so this article will give you ways to treat candida from your home naturally.
Things You Should Know to Treat Candida
1. Stop what is causing it.
This is typically the use of sugar and processed foods. Taking control of what you eat is the most important thing to consider. Most people are addicted to sugar since it is hiding in so many foods.
Did you know that most salad dressings at restaurants have some sort of sugar in them? They also likely have rancid or inflammatory oils. Then there are the more obvious foods like desserts and processed carbs.
The good news is there are many sugar alternatives that can help a sweet tooth that do not cause candida overgrowth.
- Monk Fruit
So with this list you can have your cake and eat it too! Just be mindful of the sweetener you consume.
With a severe infection you can sip Apple Cider Vinegar Water through out the day to start to augment the PH of your body to a more balanced state.
If you have an itchy scalp you can do an Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse.
- Take 1 cup purified water
- 2 tbs raw apple cider vinegar
Mix this and pour over your scalp to stop the itching.
Using Supplements to Help Treat Candida
Instead of taking antibiotics you can take natural herbs to treat candida. Mycozil will help clear the fungus from your intestines. Although you will wipe out good bacteria as well, it will not be as harsh as an antibiotic that can further destroy the gut.
A way to help move things along is to take that with a colon cleansing supplement like Oxy Powder.
Oxy powder will lessen detox symptoms during the clean out and it will move things along so that you get a thorough washing of your intestines.
Once you go through weeks of the anti-fungal supplement it is time to work on healing and sealing the guts.
3. Seal the gut by using a good probiotic to help re-inoculate your gut with the healthy microbes.
4. Seal gut
A leaky gut is when the tight junctions of the intestinal wall are now loose. This causes irritation to the lining. L-Glutamine helps seal up the intestinal holes.
Avoid Unhealthy Diet
5. Adjustments to Diet and Lifestyle
Remember during this clean and moving forward it is important to follow a balanced body ecology diet where you are not feeding the candida. Stick with the alternative sweeteners mentioned earlier.
Keep the diet alkaline with plenty of fresh greens and organic produce. Stay away from starchy vegetables and grains.
Be sure to get quality protein that is easy to absorb and plenty of nutritious healthy fats. Avocados, coconut meat and sprouted seeds can be good choices here.
Stick with whole foods and stay away from sweet juice drinks. With whole food green smoothies you get all the fiber and low to no sugar. Here is an idea.
