Candidiasis, or a yeast infection, is associated with the fungus Candida albicans. Symptoms of candidiasis include a thick white discharge and a buring or itching sensation. This organism is always present in our intestinal tracts and may play a role in our body ecology. Stress, diet, and other lifestyle patterns can trigger an overgrowth of candida, leading to a yeast infection.
Treatment Plan for Candidiasis
Herbal treatments include immune stimulants, anti-fungal herbs, intestinal heat-clearing herbs, immune tonics, and adrenal tonics where necessary. Supplements of Lactobacillus can also be helpful in normalizing the body’s flora.
