Our clinic also offers a urine test and a blood tests that is highly sensitive and able to identify candida.
What causes Candida and Yeast infections?
The key culprit are antibiotics – the latter promote yeast infections, including gastrointestinal Candida overgrowth, and can penetrate the GI mucosa. Women are often susceptible to thrush, or other genital yeast infections.
Prolonged antibiotic use, increase the risk for both men and women.
What are the most most common types of Candida infection?
Oral candidias (Candida in the mouth)
Vaginal candidias (thrush)
Candida vulvovaginitis (vaginal yeast infection)
Esophageal candidias (Candida in the esophagus)
Onychomycosis (Fungal Nail infections )
Gut yeast infections (Candida in the gut)
The truth about Antibiotics
If you have taken repeated courses of antibiotics as a child or as an adult you are likely to have developed some yeast – related problems. The reason for this is that repetitive use of antibiotics can eradicate all of your healthy gut bacteria. Low levels of healthy gut bacteria in turn may result in high levels of yeast as the latter has a chance to grow. The yeast becomes opportunistic and will be able to grow and in large quantities can be quite toxic.
Diet and the link to Candida
If you have or do consume a diet rich in sugar, bread, cakes, biscuits or alcohol this will also cause yeast to grow. You may have consumed a high sugar diet as a child and continued to do so as an adult.
There is also certainly a link between Candida and allergies and intolerances. According to Dr. William Crook, Candida can cause a leaky gut leading to food intolerances. Food intolerances are often seen in patients who have candida.
How can I treat Candida?
You will need to talk to a skilled professional who can best advise you on anti-fungal supplements and diet.
You may be advised to follow a strict diet and eliminate all sugar and yeast. You will also need to take some anti-fungals such as caprylic acid, oregano oil and some probiotics. The timing and dosage of the anti-fungals is key as if you do not take the correct amount you could make yourself feel very poorly. As the yeast dies off there is a die-off reaction that can lead to headaches, fatigue and depression. It is recommended that you see a good nutritionist to help you.
