Managing Your Microbial Populations
Most experts agree that diagnosing yeast overgrowth is best performed by a medical professional who can thoroughly analyze your medical history. A series of questions focusing on yeast-related problems is usually part of this process. According to Florida-based gastroenterologist Leonard Smith, “Allopathic medicine does a great job with anti-fungals on the seriously ill. However, when patients have low-grade recurrent Candida infections, they are treated with appropriate anti-fungal agents, but then they are offered nothing else to prevent recurrence.” While these anti-fungal drugs can effectively kill the Candida organism, unless you alter the conditions that resulted in the overgrowth, the yeast will usually come right back. In addition, when you take these drugs, the body may eliminate them before they reach the colon, allowing Candida in the lower part of your digestive tract to survive.
The best way to boost your chances of avoiding yeast overgrowth is to alter your diet and use supplements that support your body in its anti-Candida efforts. Dr. Nichols notes that taking probiotic supplements, containing beneficial bacteria that maintain the health of the digestive tract, is crucial to helping the body rid itself of Candida. “Probiotics help restore optimal digestive health,” he says. “One of the first things you need to do is bring back beneficial bacteria.”
