Candida and Chinese medicine
Often times a couple will pass a yeast infection back and forth during sexual intercourse, but yeast does not only grow around the genitals.
Understanding how and why yeast overgrows in the body is a very important part of our overall health strategy. In many cases a person has taken antibiotics for a bacterial infection only to find that after the infection is cleared they have another type of infection due to yeast or candida overgrowth. This happens frequently in women who take antibiotics, and then find they have a vaginal yeast infection.
Candida, or a yeast infection in your body is not the same species of yeast used to make beer or to bake with. Baker’s yeast and nutritional yeast are actually good for your body, and baker’s yeast or nutritional yeast will kill candida, or the yeast the overgrows in a human being.
Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture are particularly effective at helping rid yeast from the body.
To learn more about how acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine combined with certain nutritional strategies can rid yeast from your body, contact us at the Blue Ridge Acupuncture Clinic.
For thousands of years the Chinese have observed the negative and ill effects of yeast on the human body and mind. Certain herbal remedies and formulas can be particularly strong for eliminating yeast.
It is imperative that sugar and other very specific foods are avoided during a yeast infection. We can teach you exactly what foods to eat and what not to eat while you are curing your yeast infection. Candida or yeast can end up penetrating the entire digestive tract so it’s very important that the yeast overgrowth be eradicated throughout the entire system.
