Candida albicans, fungal vaginitis and yeast infections.
Candidiasis is a fungal infection caused by Candida yeast. It can designate a range of pathological symptoms caused by these yeast-form fungi.
Candida albicans, the most common species, is part of the normal flora of the oropharynx or digestive tract and traces of it can also be found in the normal vaginal flora.
In most cases, recurring fungal or yeast infections begin in the intestines. Due to a woman's physiology, the micro-organism can easily travel from the intestine through the rectum to the vulvar-vaginal area. Once in the vaginal area, it develops abnormally. Increased estrogen in women can also stimulate fungal activity.
A naturopathic approach aims to boost the immune system, as well as starve and destroy the fungus, not only locally, but also at its source, in the intestine.
Avoid all simple sugars and most fruits. Avoid potatoes and, in some cases, major intolerance-causing foods (e.g., wheat or dairy products, depending on the individual). Avoid alcohol, mushrooms and yeast.
