The next blogs are dedicated to my Mom, Phyllis L. Carter, who passed away on February 16, 2015. We researched many symptoms, causes and treatments of various ailments and complaints that she suffered from in her later years. This is the result!
I really hope that some of this information will be beneficial to those in need.
Sugar, Tumors and High Candida – Mom's Doctor’s visit; “In order to conduct her testing, we are going to give her radiated glucose water.” I asked why and this is the Doctors reply; “The number one thing to remember is that Tumors Love Sugar!” Her oncologist Doctor actually said this to us!
Sugar is in many forms. The doctor’s told my mom that her tumors could not live without sugar and this is what led to her high candida! Wow, what a concept. To make things worse, her high candida weakened her immune system which led to many doses of antibiotics! This also caused even higher candida levels.
What is this you say? Well read this great article that tells all, found in "TheCandidaDiet.com:"
“The modern diet is like a feast for Candida, since it is a yeast that needs sugar to thrive and multiply. That includes sugar itself, foods containing sugar and also anything that converts to sugar. Refined carbohydrates like processed food made with white flour, other refined grains and alcohol can all contribute to Candida growth.
A healthy immune system should be able to keep Candida at bay. However, a diet rich in sugar actually depresses your immune system, leaving it vulnerable and allowing the Candida yeast to proliferate. Moldy and yeast-containing foods must also be avoided, as they can aggravate symptoms of Candida too. This means some vegetables, condiments, sauces, coffee, tea, and packaged and processed foods.
Candida and antibiotics;
The most common culprit in an outbreak of Candida is antibiotics. A full course of antibiotics kills the harmful bacteria for which it is prescribed, but it also destroys beneficial and friendly bacteria that live in your gut. This can leave your body defenseless to harmful bacteria and fungi, such as the fast-growing Candida yeast that quickly dominates the small intestine and causes problems.
Of course there are times when you do need that antibiotics prescription, but the truth is that doctors prescribe it for many health issues unnecessarily, like the common cold or a sore throat. Make sure there is no alternative treatment to your condition and, if you must take them, be sure to take a good probiotic supplement during and after the treatment to replenish the healthy bacteria population.
Buying organic food can help to reduce your exposure to antibiotics. An astounding 55% of the antibiotics used in the US are in the livestock industry. Herds of cattle are fed antibiotics to keep mortality rates low and profit margins high. Some of these antibiotics make their way on to our plates in the form of beef and milk. This has become so widespread that the European Union has banned it completely, and won’t even import beef that has been raised in this way.” To read more click this link: http://www.thecandidadiet.com/causes.htm

10 Signs you Have Candida Overgrowth:
“You might be wondering, what on earth is candida? Candida is a fungus, which is a form of yeast, and a very small amount of it lives in your mouth and intestines. Its job is to aid with digestion and nutrient absorption but, when overproduced, candida breaks down the wall of the intestine and penetrates the bloodstream, releasing toxic byproducts into your body and causing leaky gut. This can lead to many different health problems, ranging from digestive issues to depression.” http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-8376/10-signs-you-have-candida-overgrowth-what-to-do-about-it.html
