There has been a lot of talk recently about candida, but what is it and how can you protect yourself from it?
Candida is an overgrowth of fungus in the gut, typically present due to factors like: taking antibiotics, birth control, sharing saliva with someone who has it, sugary diets which don't support healthy gut flora, and of course, stress.
The best thing you can do to protect yourself from the unpleasant symptoms of candida like, bloating, gas, skin eruptions and yeast infections are:
-Take a non-dairy probiotic, daily
-Avoid sugar as best as possible. Candida NEEDS sugar and yeast to survive
-Cut back on alcohol, peanuts and mushrooms
There is A LOT of information out there regarding candida and what you needs to be done in order to rid it from your system. Many people focus on only one aspect such as the diet. We know that candida feeds itself from the sugar and yeast you give it but changing your diet alone is not the answer. We also know that it is a fungus, but taking anti-fungals alone is also not the answer.
