Yeast infection

Description yeast infection

Candida are unicellular fungi that during the development of the human species have become a normal part of the flora of the skin and mucous membranes.

Their coexistence with humans is an example of commensalism – a relationship where one is for coexistence and beneficial to another matter. In our gut is alive an incredible variety of tiny “animals” – good and bad bacteria. We do not mind, unless this is gut microflora balance. If impaired, it has a bad effect on the physical health but also mental health. Therefore, caution should be gut microflora and its failures attention.

Candida fungus is commonly found therefore, is not dangerous for the organism .. and until for some pulse propagates or until the body becomes more susceptible to it .. Commonly happens both at once. A commensalism is the end, because the host (body) of its host (candida) inconveniences. Cohabitation thus passes into parasitism, and this attitude certainly no one does voluntarily.

And what causes multiplication of this fungus? The multiplication of reasonable needs warmth, moisture, food (carbohydrates).Thus we see that we can easily create a perfect triple kandidiných these requirements. And this does not need to get rid of candida guards – for our good bacteria – which holds its multiplication in check. The most common incentive for Candida overgrowth is alarge amount of sugar – making it the perfect food for kandidu- or antibiotics – destroys candidin superintendent.

Candida manifests itself in the form of superficial and deep:


Risk factors for yeast infection

Risk factors can be classified according to their effect:

The first decrease in the resistance of the organism – for chemotherapy in AIDS, diabetes, radiation sickness, immunosuppression (suppression of immunity) after transplantation, the weakening of the bowel, pregnancy, stress, smoking ..

Second destruction of good bacteria – antibiotics (long-term), contraceptives, steroids, swimming in chlorinated pools can rinse (disinfect) the microflora in the vagina and female kickstart fungal vaginal inflammation.

3. Direct clogging – vascular katertrů or infusion solutions

4. the supply of food Candido – intake of too much sugar


Prevencekvasinkové infection

For prevention of candidiasis is recommended for a healthy diet low in sugars. Regular supply for the body pospěšných bacteria (buttermilk, yogurt with live cultures, probiotic beverages).

It is also appropriate (as well as for the prevention of other diseases) Strengthening immunity.Currently, many antibiotics prescribed and used unnecessarily. Taking antibiotics when viral illness does have resulted in the destruction of bacteria, but the good ones (which we need to help produce vitamins or insist that nepřemnožily bad bacteria ..).


Signs and symptoms of yeast infection

Candidiasis may occur out anywhere on the body. On the surface of the body, however, it is more often registered.

Speeches, where it is often sought unsuccessfully to their cause (candidiasis in the search for a diagnosis often forgotten), headaches and joint pain, allergies, chronic inflammation, fatigue, depression, nerve pain ..

On the skin: the symptoms of candidiasis appear mainly in skin folds (behind the ears, mouth corners, armpits, under the breasts, in the groin, external genitals). The symptoms include itching,burning, redness, eczema, blistering

Nails affected by candidiasis are typical pastry. Nails acquire their color as a protruding end (whitish, yellowish) from below become friable are lámavější may occur to release them from the bed.

From the digestive system is highly affected:
Oral Cavity: often leads to the formation of sores inside the mouth, the tongue is coated white,out of the mouth odor (but rather originates from the stomach), unpleasant taste in the mouth .. by white coating of the mouth, the disease is also called thrush.

Esophagus, stomach, intestine: burping, difficulty in swallowing, flatulence, alternating diarrhea and constipation, rectal itching and burning, nausea

Genitals (vagina, uterus) resulting in candidiasis genital organs are very unpleasant, but unfortunately very common, especially for women. Typical itching, tvarohovité discharge, recurrent vaginitis or uterus as a result of candidiasis. In men, symptoms of candidiasis (reddish penis, burning foreskin, testicular pain) appear later, are often their genitals manifestations of candidiasis spared.

Urinary tract: particularly in women are frequently recurring bladder inflammation in diseases candidiasis. (May also be infected kidneys, ureters or urethra)

Hair: brittle dry hair (scalp is oily, dry or vice versa), dandruff, hair loss, excessive hair greasing

Respiratory system: Candidiasis can be affected by all its parts

Lymphatic System: A candidate may in the worst cases to leave the intestines through GALT (gut associated lymphoid tissue) into the lymphatic system. It may therefore intervene and lymph nodes, resulting in the swelling ..

Psyche: Candida can penetrate the nervous system. The consequences are depression, fatigue, impaired concentration, confusion, insomnia ..


Treatment of yeast infection

Treatment of the disease must be focused on the fact that the disease candidiasis is not only the respective affected site, but it is a disease of the whole organism. That is not enough to cure one single speech. Treatment must be complex and is usually long-term.

Basic therapy involves administration of antifungal therapy. At the same time it is necessary to follow a diet that was an attack on the candidate launched from two sides – control + not supplying the appropriate conditions for propagation.

The basic characteristics of the diet is to avoid sugar and white flour. However, this is still not enough. Exterminate because if candida Only in this way, it is highly likely that at the first opportunity to dwell in us and multiplied again, because we have reduced immunity and now scattered intestinal microflora balance. Therefore it is necessary to think about the treatment on this. Thus increasing immunity of the organism (Echinacea drops, enzyme preparations, grape seed extract from ..) and putting in order the intestinal microflora (yogurt with live cultures,probiotic drinks ..).


How can I help myself

There are many foods which have been shown antifungal effect: garlic, onion, horseradishextract from grape pips.

Conversely limit should be drinking coffee and tea (mate will bring better stimulant effects than coffee and to have anti-fungal properties).

It is also important to consider when treating candidiasis over where the fungus can survive everywhere, and therefore where it can once again after the expulsion of the body fit. Ideal hostel for candida are moist towels, toothbrushes, dishwashing sponge cloths, rags.

A novelty in the treatment of athlete’s foot is called. Smart Sponge (Biodeur). The principle of this treatment lies in the deployment of this fungus in places where the fungus occurs – this fungus is living fungi, and thus the amount gradually reduced. When the fungus, leaves and fungus. It sounds like an ideal method of treatment.

For local application can also recommend painting extract from grape cores and Tee Tree Oil (for both antifungal effects).


Complications yeast infection

The most serious complication of candidiasis is the transition from the mold surface in the mold affecting organs (or their systems, in the worst case the whole body).

Another unpleasant complications are chronic inflammation, which usually causes the presence of candida (a typical chronic inflammation of the bladder or female genitalia).

Other names: candidiasis, oral thrush, thrush, yeast syndrome, candidosis
