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.
Although not a sexually transmitted infection, vaginal yeast infection might occur at the time of your first regular sexual activity. Infections may be linked to mouth-to-genital contact.
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.
