When in balance, Candida is a fungus that aids with nutrient absorption and digestion. The discomfort of yeast overgrowth may be displayed in symptoms like: chronic fatigue, mood disorders, recurring vaginal and urinary tract infections, oral thrush, sinus infections, intestinal distress, brain fog, skin and nail fungal infections, and hormonal imbalance. Causes of Candida infections may be a combination of: weakened immune system, diabetes, cancer treatments, oral corticosteroids, birth control pills, and broad-spectrum antibiotics.
If you have a Candida Overgrowth, you may have developed new sensitivities, allergies, or intolerances to foods including dairy, eggs, corn, and gluten. Candida can break down the walls of the intestinal lining and release by-product toxins into the bloodstream, causing leaky gut syndrome.
Treatment for Candida Overgrowth may begin with boosting your immune system by eliminating sugar, alcohol, and refined carbohydrates. If your Candida Overgrowth is resistant to the usual drugs prescribed for Candida, Dr. Nangrani will pursue additional treatments with you.
