A note about Systemic Yeast Infection - What It Is and How to Beat It
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Everyone has Candida living within them - we actually need it, but it is never good when beneficial bacterium does not have control of the gut.
In most cases, even when someone is experiencing a yeast infection, it remains contained to a particular area - mouth, vagina or gut. In systemic yeast infection, the Candida gets so over grown it breaks through the intestinal lining, getting into the bloodstream and traveling throughout the body to compromise the function of other organs. These can include the lungs, chronic fatigue disorders, stress, or disorders of the liver and pancreas, because the immune system becomes compromised and clumpy blood platelets do not allow the blood to circulate as they should.
Because things such as too much antibiotics, steroids or birth control pills have destructive underlying forces, beneficial bacteria are killed and the Candida is allowed to flourish. At this point, yeast literally transforms, becomes invasive and grows rhizoids (slender outgrowths that rob nutrients from body) which have the ability to bore their way through the walls of the intestines. This allows toxins (undigested food particles, yeast, bacteria) into the blood stream.
As the overgrowth is allowed to continue, it spreads and systemic yeast infection worsens. Couple this with the standard US diet consisting of soda, alcohol, processed products made with white flour, white rice, pasta (includes all fast food) as well as sugar, you have symptoms ranging from chronic fatigue and no energy to fibromyalgia and cancer. The chlorinated water only magnifies the problem of systemic yeast infection.
Candida, slowly and subtly destroys, by breaking down or over running, everywhere it travels, fortified by the foods we eat and / or antibiotics we take to help various ailments, and grows stronger each day it is allowed to prosper. In return, it leaves us robbed of vitality, with a weakened immune system and fighting diseases like diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure and cholesterol, unexplained body aches and sensitivities (fibromyalgia), as well as autoimmune disorders like lupus and Crohn's disease.
The primarily focus of anyone who has been diagnosed with or suspects he / she has a systemic yeast infection is detoxification. This can be accomplished by the use of products that have been formulated to rid the body of Candida by not only destroying them, but by getting them out of the body and helping to replenish the body's cells as well as restoring beneficial bacteria.
They are aided by a well balanced diet of raw fruits and vegetables with additional nutrients provided through small helpings of legumes, lentils and whole grains eaten throughout the day. Juicing and supplementation can improve chances of a more speedy recovery from systemic yeast infections, as ridding the body of yeast can literally take months (up to a year depending on the extent of infection and the commitment to recovery).
Once the immune system is in full function again, it will begin the systematic eradication of excess yeast and / or bacteria, all viruses, cancer cells, as well as other potentially dangerous pathogens.
