Large growth of the fungus Candida albicans may occur anywhere on the body but mainly in the intestines or the vagina, causing aphthous infections. The frequent or chronic use of antibiotics is often the critical onset factor.
Some symptoms may be:
• Chronic weakness, cachexia
• Bloating and cramping of the gastrointestinal system
• Vaginal mycoses
• Allergies, immune system dysfunction
• Desire for carbohydrates
• Sensitivity in the use of chemicals like detergents etc.
• Immune System Disorders
• Malfunction of the liver
• Lack of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, digestive enzymes
• High consumption of carbohydrates, dairy, sweets, yeast
• Food Allergies
• Lack of nutrients
• Dysbiosis – intestine with leaks, damages in the friendly intestinal flora
How the Nutritional Therapy Athens Clinic can help
Our main concern is to discover the cause of the spread of the fungus. We start by recording your full health history and recommend special functional tests that will show any gastrointestinal, adrenal, immune system malfunctions, the condition of intestinal flora, possible nutrient deficiencies and any hidden food intolerances, among others.
Individualized Nutritional Strategy
After the diagnostic assessments comes the development of an individualized nutritional strategy, including special nutritional supplements and suggestions for a healthy lifestyle and exercise, while avoiding bad habits like alcohol and sugar. We incorporate natural antifungal foods and ingredients such as caprylic acid, more fiber in the diet plan, as well as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. We support the digestion and assimilation with natural digestive enzymes and betaine hydrochloride. We 'vaccinate' the intestine with friendly flora by using certain strains of probiotics.
