For Candida, fungi that live in our bodies, and under normal circumstances do not cause any problems, I heard that most women.Most often, in fact, associated with vaginal infections that can cause, but this is just a drop in a sea of noise and diseases that candidates are able to encourage you to get her uncontrolled proliferation, whether women, men or children.
The proliferation of colonies of Candida in the body, usually its subspecies of Candida albicans, a result of the imbalance between “good” and “bad” bacteria, which we are the hosts. It healthy, balanced organism belongs to a group of 15 percent of harmful microorganisms – bacteria, virus, fungi and parasites, which was held by 85 percent of useful bacterial colonies, probiotics.
Although mentioned, “good warrior”, thanks to which the immune system fight off the attackers, there are far more, they are of the “attackers” a lot more fragile. If the poor tenants of the body multiply – without problems and will take over the organism, causing health problems.
Reproduction or bacterial imbalance of candida, which normally lives in the digestive tract, stomach, mouth, respiratory system, the mucosa of sexual organs and skin, causing the use of antibiotics, hormonal imbalance, contact with hazardous chemicals, stress and anxiety, as well as chlorine in water that destroys the intestines “bad” or “good” bacteria. We keep you and refined products, food poor in fiber and nutrients, Candida will reign.
Multiplication fungus Candida in the digestive system can cause a range of vague symptoms that can hardly be associated with a particular disease. But if you can not understand why you, for example, turns the hair while at the same time you have a migraine, pain in joints and muscles, and you suffer from fatigue though enough sleep, it’s time to review the menu, but also reduce stress because it can all be associated with swollen Candida …

It feeds on sugar
Candida feeds on sugar, carbohydrates, generally – starch and gluten, which means that avoiding these products the first step in the fight against these fungi. The therapy against Candida, which recommended Dr. Kažinić Kreho, has an important role elimination diet in which the patient should avoid all sugars and foods that contain it – maltose, dextrose, sucrose, fructose, honey and very sweet fruits like grapes, melons and peaches. From the diet should be removed and all kinds of dried and canned fruit.
“Many people find it difficult without sugar because it is a stimulant, but it is important to know that the candidates ‘likes’ as it multiplies thanks to him. Fungi and all kinds of products which include fungi, such as cheese from the molds, should also be avoided, as well as the dark vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce, miso soup, alcohol, wine and beer, especially due to the presence of yeast. The undesirable category also includes other products with yeast – white bread, crackers, pizza, yeast dough and pasta, “Dr. Kažinić Kreho.
Although the frequent recommendations to completely avoid the consumption of fruits, practice is, according to a doctor, showed that in all cases and is not necessary. Two sour apple a day, in fact, should not be a problem.
Nutrition with candidiasis
first month it is necessary, however, completely out cow’s milk to avoid the introduction of milk sugar and replace it with rice or soy milk is organic. If candidiasis is very pronounced in the first two weeks of therapy should be removed and cucumbers, corn and carrots and any form tikvičastog vegetables that are in the digestive system turns into sugar. Avoid peanuts and who is known as the host of many fungi, as well as peanut butter.
On the other hand, artichokes, broccoli, avocado, cabbage, eggplant, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, celery, green beans, lettuce, garlic, onions, tomatoes and arugula are foods that will reduce the activity of candida in the digestive system and prevent her to “enjoy” in the middle suitable for its multiplication. “He wants” an organism, but two green apples, even some fruit – a day can eat one pear or raspberry and blueberry. Furthermore, it should eat (for vegetarians) tofu and legumes, as well as mandatory and “live” yoghurt with LGG bacteria.
Yeast breads, if you bake bread at home, should be replaced with baking soda, and are allowed and oat bread, rice crackers, pasta, corn and rice, brown rice and lentils. Coriander is, according to a nutritionist, also proved very effective in the nutritional treatment of candidiasis.
“This anti-candida elimination diet program should be,” concludes Dr. Kažinić Kreho, “carried out three months, which is enough to re-strengthen the mucous membranes of the digestive system and weaken colonies of Candida albicans. Therapeutic effect will be much lower in smokers and women who continue to take the pill. ”
Vaginal candidiasis and phytotherapy
As recommended fitoterapeutkinja others. Ksenija Krajina Pokupec, with vaginal candidiasis, which is manifested by redness and itching of the genitals and thick discharge unpleasant odor, it is very important to be treated and partner, which will eventually manifest infection redness and itching of the genitals. If the partner is not treated, the infection will be a woman repeatedly.
“During the treatment,” says fitoterapeutkinja, “to avoid intercourse, as well as a strong means for intimate hygiene, perfumes or aggressive detergents for washing clothes.”
First aid for vaginal candidiasis, which will calm the inflammation and itching, is to rinse with warm water in which, for every half liter, add half a teaspoon of sea salt. As the lining of antifungal effect and juniper berries, etc. Landscape Pokupec recommended and bath of crushed berries and juniper needles.
In the first few days of treatment with anti-candida, either food or medicinal formulations, when it subsides, typically a deterioration of the general condition of the organism and the occurrence of flu-like symptoms. Specifically, defensively, candidates increasingly fed mycotoxins, which causes general weakness and muscle pain, no consistent treatment condition will slowly repair.
How to diagnose swollen Candide
When asked how, first of all, to diagnose swollen Candide, Dr. Kažinić Kreho reveals that the most reliable analysis to test, which is also a prerequisite in order to move in the fight against these fungi.
“It is a stool test or so. immunoglobulin test of immune response to Candida albicans. On going to the doctor can motivate us, “explained the doctor,” preliminary home test from saliva. In the morning, immediately after waking up and before brushing your teeth and breakfast in a glass of water should spit a little saliva and wait 15 minutes. If saliva accumulates on the bottom of the glass or stretch into the bottom, the candidates have increased in large quantities, and if retained on the surface of the water, there is no reason for concern. ”
