There are several ways to treat Candida. Some treatments work better than others in certain situations. For example, there’s no way for me to know how well the medications by my doctor would work if she were treating me right now. If we had more information about what works best with each type of infection or symptom, then medical professionals could make their decisions much easier when they’re trying to figure out which treatment plan to choose. This article provides some ideas on Fermented foods and candida, the strongest candida killer, and How to get rid of candida naturally so it doesn’t grow back again.

Symptoms of candida overgrowth
A few symptoms associated with Candida include chronic fatigue, brain fog, diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, heartburn, flatulence, abdominal pain, mood swings, food cravings, sugar sensitivity, joint pains, rashes, skin conditions (hives), sinus infections, headaches, eczema, arthritis, PMS, fibromyalgia, urinary tract problems, thyroid issues, allergies, autoimmune disorders, neurological problems, auto-intoxication (digesting alcohol) and even cancer.
There are many other symptoms as well. You can take a look at this list here. The goal of any effective treatment should be to reduce these types of symptoms while improving quality of life without adding side effects.
Fermented foods and candida
Fermented foods contain probiotics, enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, fiber, etc., all of which have been proven to help fight off pathogens including Candida albicans. Fermented foods are not only beneficial for the digestive system but also support healthy immune function, blood circulation, cardiovascular health, energy levels, hormonal balance, weight management, detoxification, elimination systems, etc.
They also provide an abundance of B12, Vitamin D3, calcium, and magnesium. Eating fermented foods has numerous benefits such as preventing disease, reducing inflammation, balancing gut flora, increasing nutrient absorption, lowering cholesterol and triglyceride level, controlling blood pressure, managing diabetes, killing bacteria and viruses, fighting parasites, strengthening immunity against colds and flu, boosting memory functions, supporting normal sleep cycles, relieving depression, calming anxiety, promoting longevity, providing anti-aging properties, enhancing digestion, assuring proper hydration and nutrition, maintaining regularity, helping manage bowel movements and eliminating toxins from our bodies, just to name a few!
Kombucha tea is another great option for fighting Candida. Kombucha contains probiotic cultures called “the good bugs” which aid in digestion, boost metabolism, increase vitality, improve mental clarity, maintain strong immune responses, strengthen the intestinal wall, promote overall wellness, prevent pathogenic growth, protect us from harmful microbes and keep bad bacteria under control.
In addition, kombucha tea helps neutralize free radicals, boosts the immune system, regulates hormone production, reduces stress, and promotes relaxation. It enhances cellular respiration, increases oxygenation, improves liver functioning, strengthens muscles and joints, builds muscle mass and burns fat, aids in digestion, fights germs, and kills fungi/yeast like Candida.
Strongest candida killer
If you’ve tried everything else, consider using a powerful antifungal cleanser containing one of the strongest fungicides available – grapefruit seed extract. A recent study showed significant improvement after taking 100mg daily of GSE per day for 90 days compared to a placebo. Another research found that people who took 250 mg twice a week for 6 months experienced significantly fewer symptoms of fungal infections than those who didn’t use the product.
And yet another study revealed that patients with recurrent vaginal thrush benefited greatly from topical application of 0.1% metronidazole gel plus 50mg of GSE every 24 hours. Topical applications of GSE can be used anywhere there are fungus-prone areas of the body such as nail beds, feet, nails, scalp, armpits, and groin area. Other studies show that GSE can effectively combat ringworm in children and athletes’ feet in adults.

- How often do you wash your hands?
