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

    L Glutamine has helped with IBS and diverticular disease very successfully. I also have found that my energy levels are much better due to the fact that my digestive problems have settled somewhat. i have used three containers of this supplement and have ordered two more as I do consider things have improved markedly.

  • This worked for me

    Im not sure what was going on in my knickers but it did not smell pleasant (im assuming BV but never had a medical diagnosis). The reviews for this product indicated that it might help so I figured there was no harm in giving it a go. I took 1 tablet a day with lunch with the intention of increasing the dosage if nothing changed. It never got to that point as by the 4th day the very strong odour from down there had completely disappeared. Thank god I found this product!
