Gut and Intestinal Health

Candida Overgrowth El Paso, Texas

Share

Candida is a yeast that grows naturally in the human mouth and the intestines.

Small amounts aid in nutrient digestion and absorption.

However, overgrowth of candida can damage the intestinal lining and release toxic byproducts directly into the circulatory system.

If not addressed Candida overgrowth can turn chronic and lead to:

  • Fungal skin infections
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Brain fog
  • Mood swings
  • Vaginal infections
  • Seasonal allergies

The most damaging fact is that it can puncture holes through the intestinal lining.

 

  • Candida grows roots as it spreads.
  • The roots can tear through the intestinal wall as they search for sustenance that can result in leaky gut.
  • Leaky gut releases endotoxins from the intestinal lumen, like lipopolysaccharide (LPS), that can enter into circulation, triggering an innate immune response that often results in low-grade inflammation.
  • These gut bacteria lyse, release LPS into the intestinal lumen, where no damage can be done to a healthy gut.
  • But if the intestinal lining is damaged, LPS can enter directly into circulation, and trigger off a low-grade inflammation anywhere in the body.


Prevention

One way to protect the microbiome against Candida and LPS is with a combination of probiotic spores and yeast.

This combination has the power to control:

  • Pathogenic infections
  • Repair intestinal damage
  • Strengthen the immune system for future infections

However, most probiotics don’t effectively survive digestion to colonize the large intestine.

But probiotic spores and yeasts come equipped to survive the harsh gastric passage and safely enter the intestines.

 


PROBIOTICS

Probiotic spores are likely the most promising therapy for metabolic endotoxemia, while currently there are no other probiotics or compounds that have demonstrated the same effect.

 

There are many types of probiotics that offer different types of beneficial bacteria to help for the proper functioning of the body. Here are 7 types.

  • Lactobacillus Acidophilus
  • Lactobacillus Reuteri
  • Lactobacillus Bulgaricus
  • Streptococcus Thermophilus
  • Bifidobacterium Bifidum
  • Saccharomyces Boulardii
  • Bacillus Subtilis

Candida Control

When probiotics are not enough to contain a chronic Candida overgrowth it may be helpful to incorporate natural compounds like

Propolis is a resinous material that has built-in antifungal properties that are used by honeybees to protect the inside lining of the hive.

Bee propolis supports the immune system and fights infections without having to call on the immune system.

This spares energy, avoids activation of immune cells/responses and prevents inflammatory reactions that cause irritation and pain discomfort.

 

 

Undecylenic acid can also control fungal overgrowths in the gut.

It is a monounsaturated fatty acid with antifungal properties.

It can be used as a topical ointment that is safe for the most sensitive places like:

  • Skin
  • Mouth
  • Vaginal cavity

Undecylenic acid has also been found to be highly effective in treating Tinea pedis, better known as, athletes foot.

 

A total body system approach to Candida overgrowth is ideal

 

  • Address gut health as the source of Candida overgrowth
  • Restore the intestinal barrier
  • Utilize natural compounds (undecylenic acid and bee propolis), to balance intestinal cultures of Candida

This combination is a natural and effective way to improve gut barrier function and control harmful gut infections.

Probiotics are the good bacteria (or friendly bacteria) that line your gut and help in the absorption of nutrients from the food and thus boost up your immune system. Digestive disorders, candida, frequent attack of cold and flu, autoimmune disease, skin problems, etc. are some side effects we will experience due to lack of enough probiotics. In this world, due to unhealthy agricultural practices (little or no probiotics in food) and the intake of antibiotics for every health problem (kill the existing good bacteria). So, we have to include more probiotic-rich foods in our diet.
