Candida and other yeast infections are on the rise and more and more I am seeing patients suffering with symptoms which can be linked to a yeast infection, such as candida. Most people assume that symptoms such as a white coating to the tongue, intolerance’s to some food groups such as bread, and reoccurring infections are typical signs of an infection, when in fact the list of possible symptoms pointing towards a yeast infection is much longer. Digestive disorders and increased allergies, mood swings, rashes and loss of energy are all typical to a candida infection, but so are sleep problems, depression, fluid retention and muscle pain.
How Homeopathy can help:
Sarah came to see me recently with symptoms of the typical white coated tongue, ‘brain fog’ and an eczema type rash on her arms and legs. Her energy levels were low, despite being a relatively fit and active person, she also had problems with her sleep and a constant dull headache.
The white coated tongue had made her question whether or not she could perhaps have a yeast infection and having tried unsuccessfully to improve it with changes to her diet and the inclusion of probiotics daily, she then sought my help.
At the first appointment, I used my bioresonance machine to confirm that she was suffering from a yeast overgrowth and from there prescribed some homeopathic remedies to take daily and a supplement – Caprylic Acid, a fatty acid which assists in the maintenance of normal gut flora and helps to address intestinal bacteria and yeast infections. Sarah was then asked to return in 3 weeks for a follow up appointment.
Three weeks later:
At the follow up appointment, Sarah was pleased to report that her skin rash and headache had gone, and the white coating on her tongue had disappeared, leaving it a healthy pink colour. She had been able to visit the gym regularly and felt generally fit and well. A second session with the bioresonance machine confirmed that Sarah’s body was no longer prioritising a yeast infection as an issue and the only real ‘complaint’ she had was that she was a little dehydrated. Something we agreed was most likely due to the hot weather and her increase in the number of times she was now able to get to the gym!
Changing your diet to exclude yeast containing foods, sugars and processed foods will allow you to improve your gut flora and your ‘friendly’ bacteria will help to keep a candida overgrowth under control. However if you’d like more support and advice on how to improve your symptoms, do get in touch.
