Many naturopaths spend a great deal of time to help patients with yeast infections, also known as candidiasis. This condition comprises persistent psychological and physical symptoms that keep disturbing the patients unless they opt for an effective treatment option.
Candida albicans naturally occurs. It usually shows up in benign yeast growing in the gastrointestinal tract. When the condition multiplies in the body, it shows several debilitating symptoms, such as painful and persistent bloating and gas, migraines, weight gains, food sensitivities, skin problems like eczema, constipation, or diarrhea, and recurrent yeast infection in women.
Here are some steps that will help kill the yeast off and support your body to detoxify. Most importantly, they will make sure that you can emotionally cope with all sorts of physical effects of detoxifying from candida.
- Famish the Yeast
Many naturopaths starve the yeast with diet. It will have no sugar and no milk since these two food items promote yeast overgrowth. You will also avoid fruits in the first two weeks of the treatment. Foods containing no yeast-like alcohol, melons, and peanuts are recommended.
- Kill the Bacteria
You will be given anti-fungal herbs, such as bebeerine, olive leaf, and grapefruit seed extract in the combination of caprylic acid. These valuable elements can excellently break down candida.
- Repopulation of the Guts
Treating to help you get rid of candida involves repopulating the gut to kick out the bad ones. Your naturopath will use saccharomyces boulardii and probiotics to help you with this regard. These will improve your bowel movements and recirculate yeast. You may also want to take benefits of psyllium, chia seeds, flaxseeds as well as fermented food like yogurt, count water, and kimchi.
Taking the necessary measures is important to enhance liver function at this stage. Your liver serves as your body’s oil filter and when you kick out the candida, it needs to function optimally, helping the body eliminate the yeast.
