Oral or vaginal thrush, athlete’s foot, jock itch, fatigue, sinus issues, joint pain, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, fatigue… How to you get rid of candida?
If this is you, an overgrowth of yeast in your gut might be causing these symptoms.
How can you be sure it’s candida? I can test for it (I use the Organic Acid Test (OAT)), but it’s a bit pricey and having a look at your symptoms and what happened in your life can be a big clue.
If, for instance, you have had to take antibiotics often in your life, had a diet high in sugar and refined carbs, have a history of binge drinking or have diabetes AND some of the the symptoms, there’s a good chance you’re dealing with yeast overgrowth in your gut.
Candida is what they call an opportunistic organism. Now what does that mean? We all have some yeast in our gut, it’s a normal part of our microbiome. But when you’re taking antibiotics, eat a lot of sugar, have a stressful life or have low immunity, the yeast can take the opportunity and start misbehaving.
Just kill and get rid of candida?
People often ask me what they can use to kill the candida. The idea is: candida is bad so when you kill it, it’s gone and you’re done. Easy! But it doesn’t work like that…
Before you start using antifungals you need to create balance in the gut so it can’t grab the opportunity again. And make sure you’re not feeding the yeast the food that it likes: sugar!
Create a happy gut!
Creating balance in the gut is something that takes some time and attention. It’s not a quick fix! It’s like being a gardener who lovingly looks after the health of the soil, so the plants can thrive.
This is the best – and frankly: the only – way to get lasting results. And get rid of the itching, pain, fatigue, brain fog and thrush.
Did you follow an anti candida diet and/or take supplements and didn’t feel better? I’ve helped many people address the yeast overgrowth in their gut and get better energy, sleep and digestion.
