Candida / Thrush Info

Candidiasis (thrush) refers to a fungal infection in humans, by any of the candida (yeast) species (Candida albicans is the most common one.) It is also referred to as a 'yeast infection,' candidiasis is also known as candidosis, moniliasis, and oidiomycosis. It can be very persistent if not recognised and treated early on.

Candidiasis encompasses infections that range from superficial, such as oral thrush and vaginitis, to systemic and potentially life-threatening diseases. Systemic candida infections are also referred to as 'candidemia' but are usually confined to severely immunocompromised persons.

Superficial infections of skin and mucosal membranes by Candida causing local inflammation and discomfort are common in many human populations. While clearly attributable to the presence of the opportunistic pathogens of the genus Candida, candidiasis describes a number of different disease syndromes that often differ in their causes and outcomes.

Symptoms of candidiasis vary depending on the area affected. Most candidial infections result in minimal complications such as redness, itching and discomfort, though complications may be severe or even fatal if left untreated in certain populations. In immunocompetent persons, candidiasis is usually a very localised infection of the skin or mucosal membranes, including the oral cavity (thrush), the pharynx or oesophagus, the gastrointestinal tract, the urinary bladder, or the genitalia.

There some natural health products that may help in clearing the candida infection. Most of these relate to colonising our gut and stomach with beneficial bacteria to restore the microbiological balance. Horopito (Pseudowintera colorata) is a great natural health remedy which may benefit those afflicted with candida. 

Also, drinks and food containing yeast and sugar feed the yeast and should be avoided during an infection. Whilst taking some antibiotics can kill off the yeast, they also non-specifically target the 'good' bacteria that keep the yeast in check - so it's a double edged asword. Avoid humid sweaty conditions, whether climate, synthetic clothes or running shoes as they can exacerbate an existing infection and also create the perfect conditions for a new cadida infection.

Product Reviews

  • Kolorex has worked great for me

    I have been suffering from candida for years, the only thing that was keeping it from rearing up was taking anti-fungal prescription medication that is not very good for your liver and long term use. Even trying strict diets didn't help for very long. I was so happy when my sister told be about this product and I have been using it for almost a year now and had no recurrence of Thrush since I started using it. I would recommend this product to anyone suffering from candida.

  • Excellent product - immediate relief!

    This product is so great and works instantly to relieve mild symptoms. It doesn't leave an unpleasant residue like other pharmacy creams so you don't put off using it, hence a nice quick result! I've been using this alongside Candex and am finally noticing some relief from years of suffering with chronic thrush!

  • completely changed my life!

    Incredible! was on just vitex, which was helping but switched to this and have had my first pain free and moody free cycle in years! Added bonus is my skin has cleared up too, which was frustrating being 40ish with pimples!!! I would highly recommend you try it if you are suffering from PMT or painful periods!
