Thrush is an overgrowth of the yeast-like fungus Candida albicans in the mouth. White patches appear on the tongue and throat, which can lead to redness, heat, and pain. Candida overgrowth often occurs in people who are taking broad-spectrum antibiotics or in people with compromised immune systems.
Treatment Plan for Thrush
For immune suppression, use herbal immune tonics. During the acute phase, herbal immune stimulants and antifungal herbs are often recommended. It is best to avoid sugar in all forms, especially during acute infections.
