Treatment for Candida

What is Candida?

Candida albicans is a strain of yeast that is commonly responsible for vaginal yeast infections.  It also affects your digestive tract, sinuses, and skin.

What Are the Symptoms of Candida and Yeast Infections?

The symptoms of Candida or yeast overgrowth include:

  • Vaginal discharge, itching or burning
  • Prostatitis
  • Recurring sinus infections
  • Fatigue
  • Bloating, gas
  • Muscle aches/weakness
  • Joint pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Athlete’s foot

Benefits of Naturopathic Treatment for Candida:

A thorough, whole-body Candida treatment resolves recurring problems. I use a variety of anti-fungal, anti-Candida herbs and supplements coupled with the very best beneficial bacteria or probiotics. Repair of the digestive tract is also vital to the naturopathic treatment of Candida and for the prevention of food allergies and recurring gastrointestinal infections. I also do stool testing for yeast, harmful bacteria, parasites, and good bacteria that targets treatment.

Recurring Yeast Problems

If you’ve already done natural treatment for Candida, but it either didn’t work or the problem came back here are my suggestions:

Get professional help

Self-treatment often doesn’t work because you’re not using the right anti-fungal, not using a good, potent product, or not taking the right amount for the right length of time.


Good bacteria prevent harmful organisms like yeast from returning.  They produce an acidic environment that they thrive in, but yeast doesn’t.  Using a good quality probiotic, without FOS and in some cases using very specific strains of probiotics makes the difference between recurrence or not.

Hormones and Yeast

Hormone balance sometimes plays a role in yeast.  Balancing estrogen and progesterone prevents recurrence, especially if Candida problems tend to happen around your period or at ovulation. Your hormones help to regulate your vaginal pH so that it is not receptive to yeast growth. Hormones also help to regulate your immune function.


High stress increases cortisol that suppresses your immune system. Keeping your HPA axis and adrenal glands healthy and lowering your stress may help.
