Have you taken Birth Control pills and always craving for sugar and bread?
Do you also have a Migraine, sore muscles or irritable bowel syndrome? Candida could be your problem!
Candida is a type of yeast which lives in moderate amounts in our intestinal flora without causing any harm. It is vital for maintaining immunity and its growth is kept in check by the presence of beneficial Bacteria. Unfortunately, there are many factors in our modern life that can upset the balance of good bacteria, and lowers the immune system, allows Candida to overgrow.
These factors include;
All of these components increase your risk of developing a yeast overgrowth and allow Candida to produce harmful toxins in your body.
Apart from causing bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea and constipation symptoms, it can also damage the intestinal wall and allows undesirable toxins to get into the bloodstream. This condition, known as ‘Leaky Gut Syndrome’, often leads to Food Allergies and Intolerances, Migraines, Foggy Brain and Muscle Aches. Once through to the rest of the body, Candida can disrupt the endocrine system causing Thrush, PMT, Asthma, Hay Fever, Sinusitis, Weight Gain or Loss, Chronic Fatigue, Eczema, Acne and other skin aliments.
Certainly, we can see now that Candida is one of the underlying causes of these problems. You cannot resolve those symptoms unless the Candida is treated first.
Treating Candida: Balancing Programme
There is a very important principle concerning Candida and other yeast-related infections, which is that yeast can only survive, develop and overgrow in an alkaline environment. Yeast overgrowth is a fermentative condition and fermentation can only happen in an alkaline environment, whereas a natural acid pH is a protective factor against yeast overgrowth. This concept can be confusing as we are led to believe that acidity is detrimental to health. This is true, but only at the deep cellular level. Your blood, saliva, and mucus secretions oxidate and become alkaline in ill health. Or put another way, ill health only manifests in an alkaline oxidative state.
The standard medical treatment for Candida uses drugs containing certain type of yeasts like Candida, they do not prevent Candida’s ability to mutate into drug resistant strains, nor do they prevent Candida from coming back. Successful treatment of Candida depends on the correction of the environment which allowed it to develop in the first place. These can be done by several tests and diagnose to evaluate the PH balance and the internal environment of the body. Therefore, successful treatment of disease states depends on the correction of the environment which allowed the disease process to develop in the first place.
At Wimbledon Clinic, we use a unique system Biomedical Testing specifically developed by Dr. Thomas Marshall-Manifold to analyse the biological terrain, including Decoder Analysis to indicate acid/alkaline status of the body tissue to measure the free radical activity levels and monitor the progress of the treatment. Following the through diagnosis, a treatment program adjusts for the individual patient should be prescribed.
Restore biochemical balance to the body and strength to the immune system is one of the key objectives in treating Candida. It can be successfully treated by the combination of tailor-made herbs chosen specifically for the patients by Dr. Thomas, follow by nutritional therapy involving dietary supplements and changes in diet. In different cases, ozone therapy is recommended for the better result.
