Candida infection in your gut: Adjust your diet!

  1. You may be thinking, what exactly is a candida infection? Candida is a yeast that resides in small amounts in your mucous membranes (mouth, intestines). The work of this yeast is to support digestion. However, when the balance is disturbed and there are large numbers of candida yeast in your intestines, you will experience symptoms.

  1. Normally your immune system and the good bacteria themselves maintain the balance. However, there are several factors that can greatly increase the candida population:

  1. The different terms explained briefly

  1. The most well-known isolated microorganism is the Candida Albicans that resides in your mucous membranes in normal quantities. Keeping the population under control is essential to whether or not you have a candida infection.

  1. Candidiasis is the general term to describe that you have become ill from the candida microorganism. Candida is also associated with oidomycosis, moniliasis or candidios. The vast majority of people get candida and that's what this article will be about.

  1. A candida infection is not always recognizable. This is because the symptoms can vary greatly from person to person. Below is a list of the most common symptoms of a candida infection:

  1. As you can see, the symptoms are quite varied. In particular, a huge craving for sugar is a common symptom. If you think you are suffering from a candida infection but you are not sure, have yourself examined by a specialist. A blood test can determine whether there is candida overgrowth.

What can you do?

  1. The most effective treatment against candida infection in the gut is aimed at stopping the overgrowth. The first step is to restore your gut flora so that no more toxins are released into your bloodstream.

  1. Restoring your intestinal flora is primarily done by following a diet low in carbohydrates. This is also called an anti candida diet and is quite effective in stopping a candida infection.

  1. However, with diet alone it can take a while before the balance is restored. That is why you can also supplement the diet with anti-fungal agents such as oregano oil, caprylic acid and probiotics. Some supplements contain all of these components, so you can get rid of a candida infection much faster.

  1. However, too fast is certainly not recommended. When candida yeast is killed too quickly, you can suffer from candida symptoms. This means that too many toxins are released into your blood at one time, so that the liver can no longer take it.

  1. Candida that off symptoms

  1. The best strategy is to start with a balanced candida diet first. Then follow the diet and slowly start taking probiotics and anti-fungal agents. Because the last thing you want is to have candida symptoms that may cause you to quit the diet.

  1. Once you have mastered candida, it is recommended to prevent recurring infections. Now you do not have to follow the candida diet permanently. However, integrate some good parts of the diet such as not too much refined sugar and processed foods.

  1. Below are some tips to keep candida infections away:
