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.

  • Great product

    star

    I have had perioral dermatitis for about a year now. i started taking this product a few months ago and It definitely helped. It didn't go away completely but I have since gone on a gluten, diary, and nearly sugar free diet along with Kolorex and herbal supplement and benonite clay, it has finely cleared up!!

    Extremely pleased with product. Have been using it now for 6 months. Wasn't too sure initially, but made a huge improvement for me. When I have run out, I started immediately to notice. I now ensure I have a spare bottle of this product.

    star

    I suffered BV and the thrush that comes with antibiotics, plus UTI's for near on 6years. Sooo many antibiotics that I became immune to them and nothing at all made any difference. I've tried the Candex one which helped but didn't fix it. I took this on the advice of a chemist lady and took 2 per day for 2 months then weaned down to 1 per day. I haven't had any flare ups in more than 7 months.
