Are there natural Candida treatments?

Natural Candida Treatments

Wondering how to treat Candida overgrowth naturally? As a first step, experts recommend addressing situations that fuel Candida, such as:

  • Lifestyle: Reduce stress! Prolonged stress can weaken the immune system. A strong immune system is crucial for Candida relief.

  • Diet: Remove foods and beverages high in sugar, yeast, refined carbohydrates and animal products raised using antibiotics.[1]

  • Medication: Work with your doctor and assess your prolonged use of prescribed medications, including steroids, cortisone, birth control pills, the “morning-after pill,” some bronchial inhalers and antibiotics.[2]

Homeopathy and Natural Candida Treatment 

Homeopathy utilizes the law of similars, which states “like cures like.” This is a recognized pharmacological principle that activates the body’s natural healing powers. During more than 200 years of clinical use, homeopathic medicines have shown no recorded negative side effects and no negative interactions with other drugs. King Bio offers a full line of powerful homeopathic products that relieve multiple symptoms of Candida overgrowth.

And because it’s homeopathic medicine, there are no known negative side effects.

“I had Candida symptoms for a year. I missed a lot of work and was very sick. While at the health food store, a nutritionist recommended High Potency 9. My sugar cravings were dramatically reduced after one night of use. Then, after three days, I had my energy back. I struggled for so long and now I suddenly feel alive again. I am shocked how fast it all happened.”* − E.M.

Herbs, Supplements and Natural Candida Treatment

There are specific vitamin and mineral supplements that help support the immune system.[3] Supplements and herbal remedies used for natural Candida treatment include barberry; betaine hydrochloride; caprylic acid; garlic; grapefruit seed extract; lapacho; probiotics; red thyme; and certain essential oils, such as: lavender oil, oregano oil, peppermint oil, and tea tree oil.[4]

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Natural Candida Treatment

Many people find TCM a good natural Candida treatment, but you and your doctor have to determine which would be best for you. TCM herbal remedies are based on each person’s constitutional type, and practitioners recommend different herbs for different types. In TCM, acupuncture and qigong exercises are also usually recommended.[5] You may want to study this method on your own or contact a practitioner to learn more.[6][7]

Natural Candida Treatment vs. Synthetic Candida Treatment

The major difference between natural Candida treatment and synthetic Candida treatment is the lack of negative side effects. Additionally, natural remedies reduce the possibility of developing drug-resistant strains of Candida, which have become an increasing problem.[8]

Will Candida Simply Go Away?

Everyone is different, so for some, it may. On the other hand, Candida overgrowth symptoms can worsen or begin to inhibit normal bodily function. In these cases, natural Candida treatment and/or conventional treatment are necessary to restore health.

Dr. Frank King’s Natural Candida Tips

  • Drink pure water each day add lemon juice to help flush toxins.

  • Breathe deeply and exercise to circulate oxygen – Candida doesn’t like oxygen. It also helps the body eliminate toxins through the lungs.

  • Eliminate toxins via the skin through dry skin brushing and perspiration.

  • Wear clothes made of natural fibers – nylon underwear increases Candida risk.

  • Consider taking a natural fiber supplement like psyllium husk powder to satisfy hunger and keep toxins moving out.

  • Consider adding beets, milk thistle, dandelion greens and carrot juice to your diet to help the liver and gallbladder detoxify.

  • Consider adding citrus pectin, bentonite or seaweed extract (alginate) to your diet, which may bind with and help remove heavy metal toxins.

  • Consider taking antioxidants and other nutrients to keep the immune system strong.
