Candida Yeast TreatmentCandida can be a miserable condition that affects the gut. When we lack certain flora in our intestines, yeast can flourish and cause a plethora of issues. Some may even be experiencing symptoms of an internal and systemic (whole body) yeast infection and not even know it.

How does Candida take control of the body? Due to factors such as recent antibiotic use, poor nutrition, and compromised immune system, Candida will thrive and grow happily until proper balance is restored in the body to once again keep it in check. If you have a systemic yeast infection, your symptoms may include lethargy or “brain fog”, increased allergic responses, sensitivity to chemicals, heavy metal burden, hormonal imbalances (PMS), headaches, tinnitus, and digestion issues.

The foundation for treating Candida is to boost the immune system and restore the gut flora, but also remove the food supply to the yeast organism. If you suspect that Candida is an issue, please set up a Functional Medicine consult to explore all the options available to you.

The Idaho Center for Integrated Medicine is the place to get the guidance necessary to restore proper balance to your GI tract and the rest of your body.  While lab tests are not completely reliable for Candida, we can often times discover it through careful history and symptoms questionnaires.  In most cases, we like to run a Functional Stool Analysis by a specialty lab.  This evaluation tells us about the function and ecology of the entire GI tract.  If you are having one or more symptoms of Candida please call today (208) 629-5374.
