Treatments for Candida

There are five main treatments which are usually combined together to achieve the best results. A sugar and yeast-free diet is very useful and literally starves out the Candida whilst reducing cross-sensitivity between dietary yeast and the Candida organism. Anti-fungal therapy can be based on conventional drugs or herbal remedies and, in chronic cases, will need to be taken for at least four to six months initially. Probiotics (‘good bugs’) help to re-colonize the bowel and restore the normal balance. Nutritional deficiencies include Vitamins A, B2, B5, B6, B12, C and E as well as selenium, magnesium, zinc, iron, molybdenum, chromium, arginine and evening primrose oil and these can all be treated with appropriate supplements. Immunotherapy using Candida antigenic extracts have been shown to be helpful, different practitioners employing a variety of techniques.

The Natural Practice may use other techniques to help this condition. The whole of the benefit of an integrated medical approach is that a number of different approaches are brought together to support the patient and where possible, to enable them to throw the condition off. We should stress that each treatment plan is designed individually and may consist of the interventions mentioned above and those not detailed here.
