Candida Rid


Antifungal Support for Yeast Infections and Candida Overgrowth

Candida Rid is a comprehensive blend of antifungal herbs and nutrients that is designed to lower the body's level of yeast and other unwanted pathogens.

Yeast infections in humans were rare until modern times with the overuse of antibiotics and refined sugar. Today, physicians estimate that 70 to 80 percent of Americans are dealing with some form of fungal overgrowth. Many sufferers of chronic fungal infection are caught up in an endless cycle of infection and reinfection with repeated antibiotic and steroid exposures (along with their side effects).
Having a Yeast Infection is Like Trying to Row a Boat With the Anchor Out!
Many practitioners claim that yeast overgrowth plays a central role in the growth of certain cancers because of the toxic burden and oxidative stress it places on the body. not to mention the pirating of valuable cellular resources and the consequences of an overwhelmed immune system.

Candida Rid is designed to strengthen the body's natural defenses to harmful microbes and help prevent or control fungal overgrowth with no harmful side effects. When taking Candida Rid, most people also take Liver CS Plus in order to help the body flush toxins that are released during the fungal die-off. Essential Flora is also helpful to restore the normal balance of healthy bacteria in the gut.

Yeast and Fungal Overgrowth - Yeast infections have been around since ancient times. Although ancient healers couldn't identify Candida as the organism most often responsible for yeast infections, they were able to successfully treat yeast infections using herbs with natural antifungal properties. Microscopic fungi like Candida have always thrived, but yeast infections in humans were rare until modern times when two major factors set the stage to make yeast overgrowth in America as common as apple pie:

1. Antibiotics - The overuse of antibiotics is a major cause of yeast infections and other forms of fungal overgrowth. Modern antibiotics don't discriminate between the pathogens they target and the beneficial microorganisms or probiotics that normally inhabit the gut in large numbers.

When the delicate balance of essential flora in the GI tract is disturbed, yeasts and other pathogens are quick to capitalize on the opportunity to multiply. Left to flourish untreated, candida can invade the intestinal walls, breaking them down until they begin to leak harmful bacteria and larger proteins into the blood stream. The resulting long term "leaky gut" toxicity and constant immune system burden can have devastating consequences to your health.

2. Refined Carbohydrates - Our high carb diet alters pH levels, lowers baseline immunity, and directly feeds the cycle of yeast infection in our bodies.

Types of Yeast Infection - There are more than 20 species of Candida, the most common being Candida Albicans. These and other fungi normally live in and on all surfaces of our bodies with no ill effect. Under certain conditions, they can become so numerous they cause infections, particularly in warm and moist areas. Examples of such infections are vaginal yeast infections, thrush (infection in the mouth), skin outbreaks and diaper rash, sinus and nail bed infections. Rarely, the infection may spread throughout the body. Most people do not survive systemic infections because of the massive amount of inflammation and toxicity produced.

Underlying Causes of Yeast Infection - Like antibiotics, corticosteroids also deplete the body of beneficial bacteria and undermine baseline immunity, encouraging the overgrowth of yeast. Birth control pills can also promote yeast infections.

A number of factors influence the body's ability to directly or indirectly control Candida overgrowth:

Mineral Imbalance or Deficiency - Trace minerals like zinc and copper are essential to the body's ability to keep yeast under control.
Stress - Stress impairs immune system function and depletes the body of essential minerals.
Excessive Alkalinity - favors yeast overgrowth. Adrenal exhaustion and thyroid insufficiency contribute to increased alkalinity.

Heavy Metal Toxicity - Candida sufferers often have high levels of mercury, lead or cadmium in their tissues. Hair analysis can be helpful in identifying toxicities.

Inadequate Cellular Energy Production - Biochemical energy is required for all body functions, including immune system function, and all other body systems.

Impaired Short-chain fatty Acid Metabolism - Short-chain fatty acids are protective compounds that are manufactured as a byproduct of normal metabolism. Caprylic and butyric acid are frequently used as anti-fungal agents. Hair analysis and Organic Acid Testing can be helpful in identifying deficiencies.

Thyroid Suppression - is both a cause and a symptom of yeast infection because of its role in impaired immunity and energy production. Candida overgrowth in turn causes a buildup of mycotoxins that suppress thyroid function.

Symptoms of Yeast Infection - Symptoms of candidiasis can vary widely depending upon where the infection takes hold, from vaginal itching, burning and discharge to allergies and skin disorders to brain fog, thyroid and immune suppression, sugar cravings and chronic fatigue.
