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.

Vaginal yeast infections, skin disorders, itching

Can be a contributing factor in:
Alcholism
Anxiety

Fibromayalgia
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Menopause
Symptoms

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.
