What's the best way to get rid of candida?

Candida is a fungal infection that typically affects the mouth, private areas, or toenails. Candida often develops after antibiotics destroys the bacteria that keep yeast and fungus at bay.

The majority of your gut microbiome is bacteria. However, you have a small percentage of yeast, fungus, and friendly candida. When antibiotics wipe out your friendly bacteria, this leaves room for candida overgrowth.

Some of the symptoms of candida overgrowth include itchiness, burning, fatigue, cracks at the corners of the mouth, and ammonia odor.

Candida changes your pH, making it more alkaline. Sugar is the primary fuel source of candida.

Other conditions can lower your immune system and cause candida overgrowth. HIV/AIDS, organ transplants, medications like Prednisone, pregnancy, and excessive sugar consumption can all cause candida.

Oftentimes, candida overgrowth is paired with a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D has antifungal properties and is also a broad-spectrum antimicrobial.

If you have candida, there are three things that you need to do!

1. Take 20,000 to 30,000 IU of vitamin D

2. Remove sugar from the diet

3. Consume probiotic foods (sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, fermented vegetables)
