Dec. 11, 2018; by Briana McDonald (UtopiaSilver.com) Candida is a fungus that helps with digestion and other body processes but when it overproduces, it can create a host of health issues. If left unchecked, the overgrowth of Candida can break down the intestinal lining and penetrate into the bloodstream which allows toxins and other byproducts to be leeched creating leaky gut syndrome. Since Candida is a fungus, there are very few things that can treat it, however since Colloidal silver is also an anti-fungal as well as anti-viral and antibiotic, you can naturally wipe out Candida with colloidal silver as well.
What is Candida?
There are many types of fungi that live within the human body and they all play an important role. Candida is one of those and it resides in small amounts in places like your mouth and belly, or on your skin without causing any problems. However, when the environment is right, the yeast can multiply and grow out of control. The infection it causes is called Candidiasis and there are several forms of it.
What Causes Candida Infections?
Diet plays a role in all forms of dis-ease in the body. In the case of Candida overgrowth it is no different. A diet high in refined carbs and alcohol help to feed Candida but there are other causes as well.
- Antibiotic Overuse
Overusing antibiotics creates an antibiotic resistance and unfortunately, they not only wipe out bad bacteria but healthy bacteria as well. We need this good bacteria to help our immune system fight infections and keep Candida levels under control. After multiple uses of antibiotics, your body can become a breeding ground for Candida.
- Birth Control
Birth control does not directly lead to Candida overgrowth but when combined with an unhealthy diet and the overuse of antibiotics, it can adversely affect a woman’s body leading to Candida infections. A lot of women find that birth control pills instigate yeast infections and even after the initial infection is gone, they seem to come back more frequently with a vigor.
- Weak Immune System
Anyone who has a weak immune system is more likely to develop a Candida infection. This includes infants and small children, the elderly, and those diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and other inflammatory and autoimmune conditions.
- Cancer Treatment
It’s been shown that Candida can become invasive in cancer patients and present serious complications since the chemotherapy and radiation can both work to kill cancerous cells and tumors they also inevitably kill healthy bacteria that fight Candida overgrowth. (1)
In people with diabetes, sugar levels in the mouth and other mucous membranes are higher than in people who do not have diabetes. Since Candida is a type of yeast and sugar feeds yeast, it is understandable that those with diabetes are at a greater risk for developing Candida overgrowth syndrome.
What are signs you may have Candida overgrowth?
Look out for these signs that could indicate you have Candida overgrowth such as:
- chronic fatigue
- craving sweets
- bad breath
- white coating on tongue
- brain fog
- hormonal imbalances
- joint pain
- loss of sex drive
- digestive issues (gas and bloating)
- weak immune system
- urinary tract infections (2)
Wipe Out Candida with Colloidal Silver
Many people have experienced amazing results in eradicating Candida from the body by using Colloidal Silver. This is because Colloidal Silver is a natural and safe antibiotic, antiviral, and anti fungal agent that can help to wipe out unhealthy bacterial and fungal overgrowth in the body.
While employed at UCLA Medical School in the 80’s, Larry C. Ford, MD. documented over 650 different disease causing pathogens that were destroyed in minutes when exposed to small amounts of silver. Colloidal Silver does not create resistance or immunity in the organisms that are killed by it which cannot be overemphasized. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently reported that more than 2 million people in the United States suffer illnesses every year as a result of antibiotic resistant infections and over 20 thousand die from these infections.(3)
Colloidal Silver also helps to keep inflammation levels low which we all know goes a long way in the healing process of any dis-ease or aliment in the body. In addition to using Colloidal silver, you will also want to implement a few more practices to help in the healing process.
It cannot go without being said that if you are trying to eliminate Candida you will also have to eliminate processed sugar from your diet which feeds yeast. You can use stevia instead or Manuka honey to sweeten your dishes. This also means eliminating grains from your diet which also turns into sugar and is known to cause inflammation.
Support Your Spleen
The number one cause of Candida according to ancient Chinese medicine is a weakened spleen. The spleen is responsible in aiding in digestion and producing red blood cells and is a very important organ in the body. One of the foods that help support the spleen is starchy vegetables like squash, sweet potatoes, lentils and mung beans. This is where your sweetness in your diet should come from. You can also purchase barley tea online which is shown to be very supportive to the proper functioning of the spleen.
Support the Liver
Detoxing your liver is one of the most important steps in healing from Candida overgrowth and you do this by eating more sour foods and fermented foods that are a rich source of probiotics that help your body to effectively eliminate toxins and fight off infections.
Support Your Intestines
To help support the health of your intestines you want to consume foods that are bitter in nature such as your dark leafy greens like kale, and arugula. Bitter herbs such as turmeric and cinnamon are also very supportive and healing to the intestines and digestive tract.
Consume Probiotics Supplements
As all of the harmful bacteria and yeast are dying off in the process of healing from Candida overgrowth, you really want to focus on loading up on good healthy bacteria which you can do by supplementing with a quality probiotic.
