Candida and Essential Oils
What is Candida?
Basically it is an overgrowth of yeast in the intestines. This can spread to other parts of the body and can become a very serious illness. Women are more prone to this than men, but men do get it.
What causes it?
Usually it comes from a diet of over processed food high in refined sugar or overuse of antibiotics.
Sugar, carbohydrate, or alcohol cravings
Bloating after eating / Flatulence
Fatigue, inability to focus or concentrate, dizziness, memory loss
Vaginal yeast infections, skin disorders, itching
Can be a contributing factor in:
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
How do I prevent or relieve Candida symptoms?
1. Only take antibiotics if you have to. Essential oils can help you prevent or treat viruses, bacterial infection, and fungal outbreaks.
2. Eat foods high in complex carbohydrates, protein, eggs, and yogurt.
3. Boost your digestive system, as it is always poor in Candida. Essential oils can be part of repairing and restoring the digestive system.
4. Keeping a healthy colon and intestines is vital. Essential oils ingested or applied in suppositories or enemas can help maintain intestinal health.
