Candida

Posted by on Dec 15, 2011 in Gut health | 0 comments

Candida is a condition that impacts both men and women. It is important to understand because candida can be expressed via a number of indicators and/or symptoms when the condition is out of control. Candida, though not always diagnosed by dermatologists, can show up as difficult skin issues. Skin issues are unwelcome by one of any age, but when it strikes a young girl or boy they are often counseled to take a pharmaceutical treatment – and an antibiotic can contribute to the underlying candida problem. For girls, birth control can be prescribed, but with many the significant side effects especially for a young girl beginning a birth control regimen early in her teens. Despite most dermatologists’ position to the contrary, diet does play a significant part in controlling candida and in skin issues. Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Dietary Cure for Acne proves this point and then offers similar eating regimen to the one in 30 Days to Feeling Fit.
