Candida Yeast Infection
Candida is a fungus, a type of yeast, and a tiny amount of it lives in your mouth and intestines. Candida aids with digestion and nutrient absorption but, when overproduced, it can damage the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, destroying it and creating a syndrome called intestinal hyperpermeability or “leaky gut.” This can lead to many different health problems, ranging from digestive issues to depression. It can also cause new sensitivities and intolerances to foods, such as dairy, eggs, corn, and wheat (gluten). The effects can be felt systemwide, producing such symptoms as fatigue, muscle aches, and brain “fog.” Here are great tips to combat Candida with diet and botanicals. This is one of Dr. Carolyn Dean’s remedies you can do at home.
