But what causes the signs and symptoms of Candida?
The cause of Candida in men and women is the yeast-like fungus called Candida Albicans which occurs naturally in our bodies. Our ‘friendly’ bacteria keeps it under control so that it doesn’t usually cause any problems.
But if your good bacteria numbers are insufficient to do this effectively the Candida Albicans can overgrow, causing a Candida infection. This is also known as Yeast Infection and Candidiasis.
The triggers for this are things like diabetes, a lowered immune system, stress, antibiotics overuse, steroids overuse, poor nutrition, drug taking, medical conditions like cancer and HIV/AIDS, etc., and, although sex isn’t a ’cause’ it can ‘transfer’ the infection.
What treatment for Candida is available?
The normal treatments are drug-based medications that are topically applied to the affected area. These take the form of creams, pessaries, lotions, liquid suspensions, etc., depending on the site of the infection.
These can work well enough in eliminating the Candida symptoms, but many men and women do find that the infection can take some time to clear, or, they clear only to return once more. This is called recurring Candida or Candidiasis, or, recurring yeast infection.
It is reckoned that this happens because the drugs address the symptoms but not the root cause, and, the fungus can become resistant to the drugs. The result are horrible recurring infections that seem harder and harder to eliminate.
Are there any alternatives?
Yes, more and more men with a Candida infection (and women) are choosing totally natural home remedies that don’t have the downsides and expense of drug-based medications.
This takes the form of things like herbal remedies, dietary changes, natural supplements, and much more, including knowing what lifestyle changes might have to be made.
There are literally hundreds out there that you’ll need to investigate and try. But all your hard work will be well rewarded if you get rid of your Candida infection for good, as folks all around the world have been discovering.
