Candida Treatment:

In our Candida treatment at our Guardian featured Clinic, we address the underlying issues as Candida is usually a symptom of a deeper problem.

It is a yeast-like fungus, which normally resides in the body without any problem. However, diet, stress, overuse of antibiotics and the contraceptive pill can cause this organism to grow out of control. This can cause many health problems.

The fungal overgrowth is found mainly in the digestive tract. It can also be present in the vagina, causing thrush. Candida can be prolific in its growth. Its roots can pass directly through the gut wall, enabling it to enter the bloodstream. When this happens, the fungal overgrowth becomes systemic. At this point, the patient may experience lots of unpleasant symptoms.

By addressing the underlying issues with our Candida treatment, we find that recurrent thrush can be resolved.

Symptoms of Candida overgrowth may include:

  • Gas
  • Heartburn
  • Constipation
  • Sweet craving
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Hives
  • Headaches
  • Allergies
  • Bloating
  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhoea
  • Migraines
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Finger or toe nail fungus
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Malabsorption
  • Vaginal yeast (Thrush)
  • Indigestion
  • Blood sugar imbalances
  • Urinary tract problems
  • Dry or burning eyes
  • Poor memory
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Acne on face, back or body
  • Itching/redness in creases

If you have a history of recurrent thrush and would like to rid yourself of the yeast overgrowth, it is important to be medically tested (non-invasively) to ascertain the extent of the overgrowth so that treatment for yeast infection can be tailored to meet your unique needs. It is also important that patients are retested to ensure that the yeast population is within healthy limits.

Diagnostic medical testing (non-invasive) is particularly important if you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy. If this is the case, it is advisable to be clinically monitored and the prescription will take into account your circumstances. It is very important to note that some anti-fungal products that can be bought over the counter or online, are dangerous when taken during pregnancy or while you are trying to conceive. You may not be aware but your baby will inherit your gut flora, initially when going through the birth canal and then it is topped up through breastfeeding. So you can see how extremely important it is to give your baby the best start in life by passing on a healthy gut flora. This can be achieved through medical testing and treatment for yeast infection or Candida at Harley Street IBS & Autoimmune Clinic.

Dietary guidance can be formulated for patients, based on their test results and severity of the overgrowth in order to help support the treatment.

We also address any symptoms of IBS, which are often associated with the condition.
