Yeast Overgrowth Treatment
Candida, otherwise known as Yeast, is a single celled fungus that exists in our environment and can grow within our bodies and skin causing infection and disease. Typically, our immune system and the healthy bacteria in our colon regulate the amount of yeast in our bodies. However, the overuse of antibiotics and overabundance of processed foods places a strain on our immune system, killing off the good-bacteria in our colon which inhibits the control of yeast growth.
Antibiotics, synthetic steroids, and even birth control pills all contribute to killing off of the normal amount of healthy bacteria in our bodies. Furthermore, diets high in refined sugar, flour, processed foods, and even alcohol cultivate a yeast friendly environment. An overgrowth of yeast in our bodies results in a compromised immune function and often contributes to on-going illnesses including sinus-infections, allergies, yeast-infections, and simply feeling bloated, uncomfortable, and leaving you tired. Too often, these symptoms are treated with prescription medications and the root causes of your symptoms are not determined. We have found that by treating for yeast overgrowth, many of these symptoms disappear!
Our treatment plan includes eliminating yeast from the diet, eradicating the existing yeast in the colon and then repopulating the colon with healthy bacteria. We have partnered with some local businesses to make sure you can get yeast free foods to help with your program.
