Relieving Candida Related Bloating

Posted in Candida on January 31st, 2008

Candida is a condition of the digestive tract that can result in many common digestive symptoms. Bloating usually isn’t considered as a major symptom when you’re dealing with more urgent things like diarrhea, fatigue, thrush, cramps and fatigue, but bloating is a well-known symptom of Candida.

Candida’s natural job inside the human body is to help aid digestion. The bacteria helps to ferment food and in the process, it naturally produces carbon dioxide, which causes flatulence. But those that believe that Candida can grow out of control, even inside those with healthy immune systems (something modern medical science strongly believes is impossible) believe that with large amounts of Candida, come large amounts of carbon dioxide. This carbon dioxide, in turn, causes severe and sometimes painful bloating.

Candida can irritate the lining of your stomach and intestines so that you aren’t able to properly absorb the nutrients in your food, leading to battles of alternating constipation or diarrhea. Candida is believed to be the number one cause of IBS or irritable bowel syndrome. What makes Candida so controversial is that as it grows, it’s thought Candida spreads large amounts of toxins in the human body, therefore causing a wide range of symptoms that makes diagnosis very difficult.

There are many products on the market that are made to help cure Candida, or at the very least, relieve the symptoms. Probiotics, the ingestion of ‘good’ living bacteria to help fightCandida is a common treatment. But what other options are there out there?

If the idea of swallowing pills containing bacteria isn’t for you, there can be other methods of treating Candida overgrowth. The first logical step is to try to reduce the amount of Candida roaming in your gut. This can be done by literally starving the rapidly breeding Candida to death by changing your diet to include less sugar and carbs. Candida has a sweet tooth that loves to snack on sugar. The first and least envasive step is to simply change your diet.

Another step you can take to reduce Candida overgrowth is to limit or eliminate antibiotics from your medicine cabinet. It’s believed by most people suffering from Candida that the biggest culprit in the spread of the condition is the over use of antibiotics.

Antibiotics kill many of the ‘good’ bacteria alongside the bad in the digestive tract when they are taken to help treat an illness. It’s thought that this removal of the ‘good’ bacteria helps to give Candida the ability to run wild through the body. So, if you don’t want to try probiotics, the next best thing is to simply remove the thing that could be making you sick in the first place. By treating your candida the bloating that is associated with it will naturally start to subside.

Again, it can’t be stressed enough that the best thing for anyone who thinks they are suffering from Candida to do is to consult with a doctor before starting any treatment regimen. The more you know about what’s ailing you, the easier it will be to treat and the sooner you’ll feel better.

Tackling Candida Naturally

Posted in Candida on January 24th, 2008

Recent research has concluded that candida may have a more pronounced affect on health that previously thought. Candida is naturally occurring yeast that is present in every human being – we all have it all the time! When candida grows excessively it is due to a bacterial infection. Normally, it is harmless and exists in relative balance with the rest of the body. However, if the levels increase out of range of natural harmony it can cause dozens of unwanted symptoms.

Fortunately, there are ways to treat candida naturally. The mindset to treating candida should be to return the body to its natural state of equilibrium. When treating candida naturally the idea is that no prescription medications, doctor visits, or medications are necessary to fix the problem.

Using a combination of supplements, changes to the diet, anti-fungal agents, and vitamins and minerals can be effective in the battle against candida. Furthermore, as more and more research has proven that natural remedies can be just as successful as synthetic ones, people are finally starting to realize that Mother Nature has graciously provided for the healing and treatment of a huge variety of health problems.

Using vitamins, nutrients, and supplements will enable the body to rid the body of excess yeast growth. Due to the hectic lives many of us lead, it is fairly difficult for people to properly balance their diets. It is tempting to drink coffee, eat junk food, and ignore the variety of vitamins and nutrients the body so desperately needs. Vitamins and nutrients that are effective in treating candida include vitamins A, C, E, selenium, zinc, iron, glutamine, and healthy fatty acids. These substances are more available than ever before. Not only do health food stores and pharmacies carry these products – you can also find them at major supermarket chains.

In addition, you should try to consume as many antioxidants as possible. Antioxidants are important to the body for fighting disease. Antioxidants function by rendering toxins in the body harmless. Over the past few years the use of antioxidants has become more widespread. Foods are even being engineered to include heavier amounts of these beneficial substances. A great natural source of antioxidents is berries, particular blueberries.

Flaxseed oil is an excellent source of essential fatty acids. It is common for the treatment of candida. In essence, flaxseed oil is a natural antifungal agent. This means that flaxseed oil naturally does what prescription anti-fungal agents are supposed to do. Its properties are often highly successful in limiting candida growth and it should be part of any natural candida treatment.

As you can see it is possible to treat candida naturally. While these minerals, nutrients, and supplements can be a little pricey, the benefit to your health will greatly outweigh the financial cost. Even taking the monetary cost into consideration, Candida must be treated one way or another. It is always best to attempt to heal yourself the natural way over prescription drugs. This will enable your body to defeat problems the way nature intended it to.

The 4 Steps of a Candida Albicans Diet

Posted in Candida on January 10th, 2008

The Candida Albicans diet is made up of a number of different elements and each one is there to help prevent further growth of the infection, reduce the symptoms that you may be suffering from, and help to fortify the body to naturally fight the infection.

There are generally considered to be 4 main steps that will need to be followed if you wish to really feel the beneficial effects of such a diet. 

However, before you start using any form of Candida Albicans diet it is vital that you talk to either your doctor or a qualified nutritionist in order to ensure that such a diet will not cause you further problems in the future. Seeking your doctor’s advice, you will be able to receive tests to see if in fact you are suffering from a Candida Albicans overgrowth or the symptoms are part of some other underlying problem which could be complicated by a anti candida diet.

The first stage of an anti candida diet generally involves the elimination of foods which feed the candida, and so contribute to an overgrowth of Candida.

Normally during the first stage of the diet foods, which are either processed foods, or contain processed sugars, or are made using a fermentation process or contain yeast, or have any of these foods, as ingredients will need to be eliminated completely from your diet.

Also, simple carbohydrate foods such as potatoes and potato chips as well as all fungal products (mushrooms and cheeses which are produced using mold such as blue cheeses) should be eliminated from the diet.

After a period of around 12 weeks there are some foods, which may be gradually reintroduced back into your diet, although this will depend on the progress made in reducing symptoms.  The main food group that is a candidate for reintroduction is fruit.  Fruit has such amazing health benefits that it is believed they outweigh the potential problems that more sugar in the diet may cause through the fruit sugars.  Although, it is important that fruit is reintroduced slowly, and it should only make up a small proportion of the diet.

During stage 2 the body will need to adjust to cleanse itself of the toxins that are released by Candida Albicans (79 in total) and this is achieved by drinking plenty of water (around about 2 liters each day).  Also drinking hot water with a small squeeze of fresh lemon, is a great detoxifying agent, and although lemon is a fruit it is still permissible during this stage of the Candida diet.

Also during this stage it is recommended to increase the intake of vegetables including salads and those with anti fungal properties that inhibit the growth of Candida Albicans.  Ensure that there are sufficient levels of protein in the diet, by increasing the amount of fish and poultry in the diet.  It is often recommended that red meat be avoided during the first 4 weeks of this diet as it can place further strain on an already weakened digestive system.

Stage 3 of the diet means that foods that contain probiotics (pro-life) bacteria can be added to the diet to bring back balance to the Gut flora. Probiotics, or friendly bacteria are the microorganisms that normally suppress the growth of candida in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.  If they are depleted, generally through prolonged usage of certain medications, then the risk of a candida infection increases.

Either take a good probiotic supplement or consume “live” yogurt as part of a diet to repopulate the intestine with these friendly bacteria.

Whilst the final stage (stage 4) of the Candida Albicans diet allows a person to start to reintroduce those foods which where eliminated in the first stage of the diet, they should be reintroduced one at a time to monitor the effects they may have on the body.

If at any the foods that are reintroduced begin to cause problems then eliminate them from your diet immediately and continue monitoring.

How To Discover If You Have Candida Yeast Chronic Fatigue Symptoms

Posted in Candida on January 3rd, 2008

Just what is the Candida yeast chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) connection?  At present there is really no firm evidence to show that a person who suffers from chronic fatigue is also suffering from an overgrowth of Candida.

However, there seems to be growing evidence that a candida infection could be one of the many viruses or infections that triggers CFS.

It is suggested that even though the though the clinical signs of the yeast infection may be absent, through either the body naturally fighting the infection, or medical treatment, it can still trigger other problems such as fatigue (even chronic in some cases).

Most of the research into chronic fatigue suggests that main cause is a malfunction in the immune system or the metabolism.  This may be caused by a number of things, including lack of sleep, insufficient minerals and vitamins, poor diet, stress and food allergies.

Here is where the links between candida and chronic fatigue starts to become clearer.  A candida infection in the gastrointestinal tract normally indicates that there is a lack of “good” bacteria, as these are one of the main defenses against the infection.

These good bacteria are essential to ensuring a healthy digestion, and this means they are required to ensure that we get the appropriate vitamins, minerals and nutrition.  Without these our immune systems become compromised.

Also, the yeast infection, once it lines the gastrointestinal wall can cause leaky gut, which allows toxins and undigested food debris into the blood stream, which can again weaken the immune response.

Also, if digestion is slowed, the food within the intestinal tract becomes warm and wet providing a perfect environment for the candida yeast, which is essentially a fungus, so more toxins are produced.

A candida infection can also be caused by a poor diet.  A diet high is sugars, processed food and yeast products can promote the growth of the candida yeast.  And a poor diet is going to also contribute to lowering the effectiveness of the immune system.

There is also some evidence that being stressed is linked to yeast infections and chronic fatigue.  As many as 80% of patients with CFS have been found to have elevated stress levels, which inhibits the generation of T cell lymphocytes by the immune system.

Whilst kept under control, the Candida yeast found in the digestive system will cause us no problems but as soon as it is provided with the chance to grow then this is when the problems mentioned previously can occur.

Fatigue is one of the main symptoms of a candida yeast infection.   Many people who suffer from candida will find that their bodies are unable to obtain the essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals that are required in order for them to work properly and one of the main symptoms that they will feel is chronic fatigue.

In most cases they people can be left feeling extremely tired and lackluster and find it difficult to cope with normal day to day tasks.

In around about 80% of all the cases of chronic fatigue it will start with flu symptoms, which is very similar to the symptoms felt by someone suffering from a Candida yeast infection.

Although there is no definitive proof of a candida yeast chronic fatigue connection, it is clear that the symptoms and the conditions effect similar bodily functions.  At the first sign of a candida yeast infection seek professional advice to reduce the impact it can have on the body.
