Candida

Do you have Candida?

We have the diagnostic tools to help confirm Candida and design a treatment to rebuild your immune system. Our unique treatments involve refining the Candida diet, vitamin and herb supplements and Candida sublingual drops to give long lasting protection.

Candida is a yeast that lives in our bodies. Typically, Candida lives in harmony with the healthy bacteria of the digestive tract. But antibiotics, steroids, birth control pills, or even simply an increase in sugar consumption can lead to a Candida overgrowth, which can seriously impact your health.

Some doctors think that an overgrowth of Candida isn’t a problem.

We completely disagree, and over the years we have seen first-hand how treating this fungus can increase my patients’ well-being. It is true that there is no definitive test for Candida. There’s also no definitive test for an upper respiratory tract infection…but you know when you have a cold.

SYMPTOMS OF CANDIDA

Candida has several different names: yeast, fungi, Candida hypersensitivity syndrome. It also frequently co-occurs with other syndromes. Anyone with fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, for instance, probably has a problem with Candida–although people with Candida may not have either one. If you have the following symptoms, the chances are Candida is playing a role:

  • Gastrointestinal: Bloating, Constipation & Irritable bowel
  • Pelvic: Vaginal Itchy & discharge, burning
  • Skin: Rashes
  • Sinuses: Sinus congestion/ pressure
  • Neurological: lack of focus, poor concentration & anxiety/ depression

You are also at risk for Candida overgrowth if you have been on long-term antibiotics, or multiple courses of antibiotics for acne or respiratory infections. If you have been on the birth control pill or used topical or oral corticosteroids this may contribute as well and finally a diet that has been high in carboyhydrates and simples sugar put you at high risk.
