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.
This product was initially recommended to me by my Pharmacist as I had ongoing UTI's.
I would definitely recommend this product as since using it, I have had no more episodes of UTI's.
Overall health seems to have improved as well!
This is strong stuff and you should take it cautiously, but I've been using this product as a tea for the last year to rid myself of UTI's. Great alternative to antibiotics.
L-glutamine for gut healing..
I was diagnosed with coeliac disease a couple of months ago. My gut was so shot, I couldn't really eat anything without feeling awful. I'd heard L-glutamine is good for the gut so I brought some to put in my lacto-free smoothies. I've improved a lot since I started taking it. I still have a long way to go, but its helped heaps. I've brought my second lot :) I'd recommend this.. but taking too much made my guts rumbly. Everything in moderation ;)
