Maybe you feel the die-off of a Candida cleanse. You have flu-like symptoms, including a headache. Your skin flares. Your energy drags. You think it’s working. Because when the body cleanses, things usually get worse before they get better.
But the feeling of die-off (otherwise known as a Herxheimer reaction) doesn’t always mean that you’ve won the battle against Candida. It simply means that you’re releasing accumulated waste and shuttling out a new wave of toxins.
If you really want to target Candida overgrowth and get rid of a deep and systemic infection, you must give your liver and your immune system extra support.
How Candida Takes Over
More than 70% of healthy folks harbor Candida albicans, a fungus that normally colonizes the mouth, gut, and birth canal.
In the right places, small communities of Candida support overall wellness, limiting the growth of harmful fungi and stimulating the immune system. But Candida albicans is responsible for approximately 50–90% of candidiasis (infection) in humans. Besides C. albicans, other strains of Candida can be just as virulent and dangerous.
What makes Candida go rogue?
An opportunity. Candida is naturally opportunistic and will quickly take over its environment if given the chance.
A few common health disorders leave the door wide open for Candida
overgrowth. They include:
An inflamed and leaky gut
A toxic and overburdened liver
Use of antibiotic drugs, steroid medications, and antacids
Once Candida gets the signal, it can quickly move beyond its native territory—infiltrating cells, encouraging inflammation, and moving into your blood and eventually your organs.
Care with homemade or natural products are effective but you must bear in mind that you will not have immediate results. Any questions, remember that it is better to consult with your trusted doctor.
