Podcast 063: Candida


Dr. Meaghan and Wendy talk about Candida. Candida is a fungal infection that causes a disruption on numerous levels. These are individuals that have a laundry list of symptoms ranging from digestive concerns to brain fog and skin issues.

One of the best ways to screen for Candida is to do a questionnaire. There are numerous ones that you can find online. There is also a spit test where you spit into the water and let it sit and see the consistency of your spit. It is also possible for a functional medicine doctor to take a stool sample and assess for Candida. Many times, though, these tests will provide a false negative and not reveal the Candida even though it is there.

For treatment, it is necessary to go after it with supplements and diet. You must avoid sugar, yeast, and other molds to make sure that you are not feeding the Candida. You will also want to take digestive aids and need to be on HCl, digestive enzymes, and probiotics. To kill off the yeast, you will need to add a supplement with oregano oil, caprylic acid, and berberine.

After you have successfully treated the Candida, it is important to make sure to repair the gut and restore the proper integrity of the digestive system.

It can be very difficult to treat Candida, and it is important to make sure that you have the proper support needed.

Thanks so guys for listening and remember to be kind to others, take care of yourself, and make good choices.
