It’s also important to avoid chemical exposures
in your home, office and your environment. In many
cases, antifungal medications prescribed by your physician
will be an essential element in your success.
It’s important not to attempt to self-treat
chronic health conditions. Find a caring, knowledgeable
physician to work
with you to develop a care plan that’s perfect
for you and your situation.
If you and your health care professional decide that
supplements would be helpful for you, remember, herbs
and supplements typically work very gradually in the
body. We recommend taking herbs and supplements for
at least three months before you decide whether or
not it is working for you. During that time, pay close
attention to signals your body sends you. These signals
are often from your intuition and may be very subtle,
but very important to notice. Any changes in energy,
appetite, sleep, taste, smell, hearing, eyesight?
Keep detailed notes
so you will notice how your body responds. And, discuss
any supplements you plan to take with your physician
before you start since some medications interact with
certain herbs and supplements and alter their effectiveness.
The right combination of supplements helps to re-establish
and maintain a healthy balance of naturally occurring
microorganisms throughout your system. It also helps
strengthen your immune system and helps maintain general
good health. To address yeast related health conditions,
make sure your supplements are yeast-free, sugar-free,
Yeast Connection and Women's Health recommends
a combination of the following types of supplements:
These supplements contain friendly bacteria that
help you keep a natural, healthy balance of microorganisms
in your digestive tract. There are many different
forms and brands of probiotics available in foods
and pills and capsules. However, to be effective,
they need to be able to bypass the harsh stomach
acid and deliver at least 1 billion live organisms
to the intestines.
Digestive Enzymes. These supplements provide a combination
of digestive enzymes to help maintain a natural,
healthy digestion. Among their many benefits, this supplement
helps you comfortably digest problem foods like
broccoli, cauliflower, beans, fruit, and milk.
Herbs and nutrients to inhibit the growth of Candida
albicans. In addition to prescription antifungal
medications, a variety of herbs and nutrients can
help support a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria,
reining in yeast growth. Some ingredients to look for : caprylic acid, pau D’Arco,
oregano oil,black walnut, grapefruit seed extract,
garlic, beta carotene, and biotin.
Vitamins and minerals. Taking a daily multivitamin
and mineral supplement helps supply your body with
the nutrients it needs to help you regain our health.
