Candida Yeast Overgrowth | Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center
“Heartburn, nausea, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea!”
These are the words to a famous commercial jingle for a pink, stomach-soothing medication that we’re all too familiar with. Each of us have experienced these symptoms at some point in time, but what if you are experiencing them all the time? It might be a clue that you could be suffering from Yeast Overgrowth, otherwise known as Candidiasis.
Different factors can contribute to an imbalance in the intestinal flora in your gut, which can affect so many different aspects of your health. For instance, Yeast Overgrowth can weaken your immune system causing you to get sick with say, an upper respiratory infection. You may then choose to go to a traditional doctor and they prescribe you a round of antibiotics. This takes care of the factors that are making you sick, but it also kills the good bacteria in your body that helps regulate the yeast. Without anything to control the yeast, your immune system is further weakened, causing you to get sick again. It’s an unfortunate cycle that will continue unless the yeast is brought back into proper balance.
Have you taken antibiotics several times in your life? Do you eat starchy foods on a regular basis? These factors can greatly contribute to a yeast imbalance in your body.
