One reason for the failure of yeast infection therapies is the presence of an undiagnosed infection with parasites (blastocystis hominis, giardia lamblia, entamoeba coli, or others). According to Dr. Leo Galland, an expert in the treatment of Candida and parasitic infections, “Every patient with disorders of immune function, including multiple allergies, patients with unexplained fatigue, or with chronic bowel symptoms, should be evaluated for the presence of intestinal parasites.”
In a study reported in the Journal of Nutritional Medicine they found that one symptom of hidden giardia infection may be constipation. In the United States, it is estimated that about 50 percent of the water supplied to communities is contaminated with the parasite giardia lamblia. This parasite and several others (especially blastocystis hominis and entamoeba histolytica) have been implicated in a large number of physical and emotional illnesses.
People can easily pick up these infestations that can lead to yeast from salad bars, day-care centers, and household pets. Natural herbal remedies are available to treat the growing epidemic of these parasites in the North American population. Remedies include artemisia annua, berberine, grapefruit seed extract, cloves, black walnut, pumpkin seeds, chinchona, and garlic. Goldenseal, ginger root, vitamin B6, stomach bitters, plant enzymes, and pancreatic digestive enzymes (pancreatin) may also be helpful and are free of side effects.
Natural Cures For Yeast Infections: The Parasite Cleanse
Naturopaths have for centuries advocated colon cleansing as a way of detoxifying the entire body and as a great natural cure for yeast. In early cases of parasite infections (before the parasites have reached the liver, bloodstream, and other internal organs) it may be enough just to detoxify the GI tract. Some have relied on the use of high colonic irrigation as a way of cleansing all bowel toxins, including parasites, but this does little, if anything, to rid the bloodstream or organs of parasites.
In any case of diagnosed parasitic infection, the first thing to do is to cleanse the gastrointestinal tract, the usual source of parasites for the rest of the body. No drug or herb by itself can reach parasites that have become embedded in the intestinal wall, sometimes for years. The mucus-encrusted waste matter surrounding worms, amoebae, or flukes has to be softened and exposed first. This is something that can be accomplished by using what is usually called a “colon cleanser,” made up of a combination of soluble fibers like ground flaxseeds, psyllium husks, sodium alginate, agar-agar, comfrey root, beet root, citrus pectin, apple pectin, bentonite, and dried fruit extracts from figs, prunes, dates and papayas.
These water-soluble fibers all have a de-sludging effect, ridding the intestinal walls of encrusted debris and mucus materials for better waste elimination. Water intake has to be increased whenever one uses a bowel cleanser to enhance toxin elimination. If constipation results from using a colon cleanser, one of the reasons for this may well be inadequate pure water intake.
Colonic irrigation and enemas can also be used to clear the colon, but these are not necessary if one improves the diet to include more high-fiber foods and uses a colon cleanser. Many very good ones are on the market, several of which are sold by network marketing distributors.
These Natural Cures For Yeast Infections are an excellent start. However, to rid yourself of yeast permanently so that it doesn’t come back worse than before, you need a proven SYSTEM.
