How Candida Overgrowth Can Affect Your Health and What You Can Do About it NaturallyApr 23, 2023
Candida overgrowth is an imbalance of bacteria in the body that can lead to a variety of health issues, including fatigue, headaches, digestive issues, and skin problems. While candida overgrowth is more common in adults than children, it can still affect your family's health if not managed properly. Let’s explore what causes candida overgrowth and how you can address it naturally.
What Causes Candida Overgrowth?
Candida overgrowth is caused by an imbalance in the natural bacteria present in the body. This imbalance can be triggered by various factors such as stress, diet, antibiotics, or a weakened immune system. When these bacteria become out of balance, they can cause a range of health issues such as fatigue, headaches, digestive problems and skin rashes. It is important to note that candida overgrowth is not contagious and cannot be passed on from person to person.
How to Manage Candida Overgrowth Naturally
The best way to manage candida overgrowth naturally is through dietary changes. Avoiding processed foods and sugar as much as possible will help curb the growth of candida yeast in the body. Some people find great success with the carnivore diet, as it is pretty much void of carbohydrates and basically starves the candida, which feeds off sugar! After ridding the body of candida, eating fermented foods like kimchi can help introduce good bacteria into your system and bring the balance back into check. Additionally, introducing probiotic supplements into your diet can also help restore balance to your microbiome. Other ways to manage candida include reducing stress levels through activities like exercise or meditation; getting enough sleep; avoid alcohol consumption; adding antifungal foods such as garlic or ginger into your diet; and increasing your water intake on a daily basis.
Candida overgrowth can be a serious issue for both adults and children if left untreated. Thankfully there are ways you can manage it naturally without resorting to pharmaceutical medications which may have side effects. By making dietary changes like avoiding processed food and sugar; eating fermented foods; introducing probiotics; reducing stress levels; getting enough sleep; avoiding alcohol consumption; adding antifungal foods into your diet; and increasing water intake on a daily basis - you will be able to bring the bacterial balance back into check and improve overall health for yourself and your family members!
