Dealing with chronically reoccurring Candida flare-ups is incredibly frustrating. These include fungal or nail infections, thrush, vaginal yeast infections, and skin or stomach issues. You may feel like you’re in an endless loop of uncomfortable symptoms followed by a round of harsh antibiotics. If you want to break this cycle, try chiropractic care from the team of doctors at Arlington Chiropractic Clinic, PC. Learn how to diagnose and stop your Candida infections naturally.
Candida is naturally occurring yeast that lives in our bodies. It doesn’t inherently cause any issues until it becomes overgrown. The symptoms of Candida overgrowth vary but may include vaginal and urinary tract infections, sudden-onset allergies, fatigue, gastrointestinal distress, bloating, mood swings, migraines, anxiety, frequent illness and skin issues.
You may be more susceptible to a Candida flare-up if you are taking birth control pills, under a lot of stress, ingesting too much alcohol, carbohydrates, and sugars, or taking antibiotics, which kill the bacteria that combat the Candida in our systems.
One of the best ways to prevent Candida overgrowth is through your diet. Because yeast feeds on refined carbohydrates and sugar, you should limit grains, pasta, fruit, and alcohol while you are trying to fight chronic Candida infections. Incorporate anti-fungal foods, which include onions, apple cider vinegar, ginger, coconut oil and chamomile tea. They can also help you get over the infection faster. Plus, drinking roughly 2 liters of water a day helps detoxify and lower Candida levels.
Lowering stress through meditation and rest can help the body recover and balance again. Probiotics can increase the good bacteria that fight Candida in your gut.
Chiropractic care can help treat Candida infections by discussing specific diet changes, recommending certain supplements that can eradicate Candida organisms, and provide adjustments to the body that help to improve the communication between the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. When your spine is functioning properly, your body can move blood, water, and nutrients more easily and effectively to internal organs, which strengthens the immune system and promotes healing. Chiropractors don’t use pharmaceutical treatments, which can perpetuate the Candida cycle.
Following a comprehensive history, exam, and specialized laboratory tests, our doctors will go over the findings and create an individualized treatment plan. We believe that whole-body, holistic care, focused on treating the root cause, can help reduce an overgrowth of Candida through specific chiropractic treatments, such as natural supplements, dietary changes, lifestyle advice, and therapy.
