What to do about something like a chronic Candida infection will boil down to a few simple elements. First, learning whether or not you are indeed suffering from chronic Candida. Second, learning about the organism in order to eliminate its presence. Lastly, taking the proper steps to completely eliminating the overgrowth of Candida from the G.I. tract.
It helps to first know that C. albicans resides naturally within the G.I. tract of both men and women, and though it is thought of more as a woman’s medical condition, men can develop a chronic Candida infection just as easily as women.
What is Candida?
As far as Candida itself goes the most common form of the species is Candida albicans. Just as long as C. albicans remains naturally confined within the G.I. Tract — and just as long as it doesn’t grow wildly out of control — it will present little or no problem. But Candida, being fungal in nature, the possibility that it can indeed grow wildly is always present, in which case chronic Candida infections could become a depressing regularity.
When is it Chronic?
Candidiasis condition can be considered chronic if you have had symptoms generally lasting longer than 6 months or more. Some of the most common symptoms reported are constant headaches, fevers, gas/bloating, diarrhea or constipation, indigestion, brain fog, fatigue, depression etc.
Steps for Eliminating Candida
If any of these conditions have been occurring for longer than 6 months and you suspect chronic Candida albicans, than there are several steps you can take in order to eliminate these symptoms. Here are these steps simplified:
Step 1: Starve the Candida organism using the anti-Candida diet and/or anti-fungals. The anti-Candida diet can be found in the Restore 3 protocol
Step 2: Replenish your G.I. tract with probiotics and supplements that rebuild the intestinal wall.
By following this outline, you are well underway to regaining your health and eliminating most, if not all, of the symptoms that may be plaguing you. The biggest culprit to avoid at all costs during the anti-Candida diet is to eliminate all sugar from your diet since Candida yeast cells feed mainly off of the sugar that you eat.
If the Candida problem remains within body systems or organs, certain robust anti-fungals can do the trick as far as overcoming the various chronic Candida infections that may show themselves. If Candida can make it into one or several of the body systems such as the bloodstream, there is a danger of developing chronic systemic Candida. This should be regarded as a potentially serious issue if left untreated for many years.
Chronic Candida, if left untreated for a long period of time, has the potential to wreak havoc on the general well-being of a person both physically and non-physically. It also has been shown to lead to many auto-immune diseases and conditions such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.
By taking your health into your own hands and educating yourself on chronic Candida, you can eliminate this problem forever rather inexpensively. There is a wealth of information and a step-by-step guide to Candida elimination found in the Restore 3 protocol.
