Candida Overgrowth

Candida albicans overgrowth describes a situation in which the naturally occurring, usually benign yeast, Candida albicans, reproduces in the body excessively. It occurs when the normal balance between “good” and “bad” microorganisms (specifically Candida albicans) is disrupted, most commonly by use of antibiotic or steroid medications); compromised immune system activity not controlling yeast population; or a diet that supports growth of yeasts.

Symptoms of Candida Overgrowth

Possible symptoms of Candida albicans overgrowth include:

  • Painful, white mouth lesions
  • Abdominal pain and bloating
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Heartburn
  • Vaginal itching or burning sensation
  • Headache
  • Muscle aching
  • Poor concentration and memory
  • Fatigue
  • Recurrent ear infections

Treatment of Candida Overgrowth

The goals of Candida albicans overgrowth treatment are to remove dietary factors that support Candida albicans growth, reduce Candida albicans population in the body, increase populations of “good” microorganisms in the body to compete with Candida albicans and prevent symptoms occurring from Candida albicans “die-off” (e.g., headaches, nausea, fatigue).

Typical approach to treating Candida overgrowth:

  1. Identify and address underlying factors in your lifestyle (e.g., poor diet or general health (e.g., diabetes, chronic use of corticosteroid medications) that may be contributing to Candida albicans overgrowth
  2. Reduction of Candida albicans populations using natural anti-fungal
  3. Increase “good” bacteria populations using nutritional supplements
  4. Prevention of recurrence by optimizing immune system function using nutritional supplements and nutritional counseling
