If you've been looking to clear your chronic bloat, skin issues, yeast infections & brain fog that don't seem to go away, then you may need to look into a candida cleanse. Candida overgrowth is becoming more common and is something I see frequently in my practice. Whether you're trying to figure out if you have a candida overgrowth or you're actively trying to cleanse candida, this newsletter provides some important and helpful tips to implement along the way!
Candida is a type of yeast that lives naturally in the body. However, it's very opportunistic, and when the gut microbiome becomes disrupted, candida can begin to grow out of control. Some of the biggest contributors to candida overgrowth are antibiotic use, a diet high in refined sugars & grains, high alcohol intake, the use of oral contraceptives & high stress levels. When candida overgrows, uncomfortable symptoms start to occur.
While symptoms may vary from person to person, there are some key indicators to look for. Often times, digestive issues are at play, such as bloating that doesn't seem to go away and gets worse after eating sugar or carbs (hint: you could be feeding the candida). Additionally, any type of fungal infection, such as on the skin or nails, or reoccurring yeast infections are an indicator that body may have a candida issue. Lastly, because the gut is connected to the brain, it's common to experience brain fog or changes in mood.
You want to incorporate natural anti-fungals into your diet when cleansing candida. This includes apple cider vinegar, dandelion, coconut oil, garlic, aloe vera, and curcumin. You'll also want to focus on liver-supporting foods since the liver is going to be working hard to detox the candida. Foods to focus on are beets, cruciferous vegetables, organic berries, bitter greens and fiber-rich foods. In addition to emphasizing these foods, you'll want to reduce intake of foods that are processed, high in sugar & alcohol.
