Candida and its connection to psoriasis...

Candida, candidiasis, leaky gut, yeast infection, antibiotics, psoriasis

Candida is a form of yeast. When out of control it is called candidiasis. It most commonly occurs in people have or acquire a compromised immune system. I believe that we unknowingly alter the perfection of our body's immune system by agreeing to medical procedures without researching the side affects. All inorganic medical procedures have side affects. These include surgery, anesthesia, and topical and oral medications.

Antibiotics are the number one reason for the overgrowth of yeast, which results in candidiasis. Antibiotics, used in the successful treatment of strep throat, not only kill harmful bacteria, but also the harmless bacteria that keep Candida proliferation at bay. The reason why there is such a strong link between candidiasis and psoriasis is because people already have Candida. After just one round of antibiotics, Candida has a field day. Not only does it overpower any healthy bacteria that may exist, but also it gains momentum from other internal and external factors that enter into the equation. Sugar is a good example of a substance that loves to partner with Candida to produce candidiasis exponentially.

Fortunately, there are amazing products on the market to assist you. One of the most organic precautionary products on the market is yogurt. Obviously the more organic and less sugar it has the more effective it will be. If eating yogurt after a round of antibiotics does not seem to satisfy your fear of yeast overgrowth, I strongly recommend you buy an over the counter L. acidophilus. Today, you can get this at most drug stores or any health food store. Follow the directions for proper use and your intestinal flora should get happy again. My daughter takes a chewable brand that she really likes. I rather her eat this form of candy any day. Besides, kids are going to satisfy their sweet tooth anyway they can.

This next step is very important. Because you can assume that your child has candidiasis, I want you to find a candidiasis cleanse that you like for killing it. I found this a little tricky. My family and I used Threelac, and we were all satisfied with the quality, but it is very expensive. I suggest you go online and do a Google search of products, then go to your health food store and look at the products they have available. Long-term recovery from candidiasis will be costly, no matter which product you choose, so perhaps you should buy what you can most afford. I suspect the less expensive products will do just as good a job as the costly ones will, but their prices won't hurt your feelings as much. The worst-case scenario is that you have to use your product longer or move on to a different manufacturer. I always look at the list of ingredients, thoroughly read about them online, and then search the Internet for its best value. Whichever products you choose, plan for a long-term strategy to prevent recurrence because inevitably you will likely need another antibiotic during your lifetime.

Immediate relief for yeast infection:

Insert one boric acid powder capsule into your vagina morning and evening for three to seven days for an acute infection and 14 to 30 days for a chronic infection. I have not seen boric acid capsules widely available in health stores or pharmacies but women can make their own by buying a bottle of boric acid powder and gelatin capsules (a capsule-making machine makes the process go faster).

Studies show the effectiveness of boric acid is very high especially in women with chronic resistant yeast infections - one study with 100 women showed a 98 percent success rate with this condition. If you find that the boric acid irritates your external genitalia you can protect the tissue with vitamin E oil (preferred).
