Is there any connection between our living environment and the risk of getting candida yeast infection? How do I get rid of yeast infection that is due to chemicals and toxic elements?


To answer these questions, we first have to know what candida is. Yeasts are one-celled organisms that are present in the environment as well as in our bodies. Yeasts can be found in our mouth and intestines and they help us in digestion. In small quantities, yeasts are harmless.


Normally the amount of yeasts in our bodies is kept at a healthy level by the friendly bacteria (bacterial flora) and a type of white blood cells called neutrophils. However, certain conditions may cause malfunction of both the bacterial flora and neutrophils.


When this happens, the yeasts will overgrow or increase by more than the normal amount that is needed by our bodies. In fact, the term “Candida” refers to the general overgrowth of various fungi and yeasts in the body, which flourish under certain circumstances to the point of causing illness.  Candida albicans appears to be the most prominent of these microbes.


One of the factors that cause this to happen is the over-exposure to toxins which can be present in chemicals, metals, medicines, dental fillings or even food.


Our body system is able to handle toxins up to a certain level. Beyond this tolerable level, our immunity system will get overworked and start to malfunction. This will then cause yeasts to multiply in numbers beyond the required healthy level.


This excess toxic in our body can lead to hormonal imbalance, genetic alterations, immune system failure, skin problems, allergies and nerve and brain damage.


Unfortunately, we may not be aware that the excess toxic in our body is due to pollution (as we accidentally inhale some chemicals), the consumption of food and the usage of any items (such as pesticides, herbicides, solvents, paints, formaldehyde, petrochemicals, and heavy metals) when during the process of producing them, chemicals are used or added on them.


When excess toxic occurs in our intestine, the intestinal lining will produce extra mucus to prevent the harmful chemicals from being absorbed into the blood stream. The problem is that this mucus creates an environment, which lacks oxygen, thus encourages bacteria and fungi like organisms such as candida yeast to grow out of control.


How to treat candida yeast infection?


The successful treatment of candida yeast infection incorporates several of the basic principles of holistic medicine, which emphasizes self-care, proper diet, and the wise use of both conventional and complementary therapies. This will also require the need to cut down or avoid exposure to items that contain the harmful chemicals.


Because candida yeast infection results from over-exposure to toxics occurs over a prolonged period of time, you must realize that there is no quick-fix cure. In order to be effective, both time and personal commitment to dietary and lifestyle changes are required.


Treatment also depends on the degree of yeast overgrowth and how badly it has compromised immune function. When yeast overgrowth is confined only to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract or vagina, the treatment tends to be shorter and less involved.


In systemic cases, however, where yeast toxins have spread throughout the body, treatment protocols can last as long as six months to a year. And in severe cases of leaky gut syndrome, successful treatment (requiring the healing of the bowel lining) takes at least a year or more.
