Balancing Health: Ayurvedic Remedies for Candida Overgrowth

 

Candida or Thrush Infection is a common fungal infection caused by Candida fungus growth. Candida is present in smaller quantities inside the throat, digestive system and mouth of all the human being. It is not a problem until it changes into fungal form.

 

These fungal produce rhizoids that can cause spores throughout the intestinal wall. It leaks undigested food into the bloodstream. Candida overgrowth is not difficult to recognize through lab testing. However, the actual diagnosis can be difficult to obtain because the symptoms may be associated with other diseases.

 

 

What is Candida?

 

 

Candidiasis is a fungal infection of any species from the genus of yeasts. It exists in all human being who are healthy, especially in skin, but Candida growth is limited by the immunity power of the human being.

 

 

Candidiasis in Ayurveda

 

 

In Ayurveda, Candida is immunity disorder caused by deficiency in OJA. OJA is considered as the immunity power of the body, which prevents the growth of the foreign particles or microbes in the body. The deficiency in OJA is resulted from the poor dietary habits, ill lifestyle, indigestion, poor metabolic power of the body and imbalances in the three humors.

 

 

The other cause may be undigested food or AMA (Toxins). The disease may result from the by-products of undigested food. The by-product is then absorbed in the blood stream, creating toxins that will lead to many health issues. As the by-products accumulate in the large and small intestine, it will ferment, inhibiting the normal flora from proliferating.

 

 

Thereafter, as per Ayurvedic principles, the over growth of Candida fungus will lead to intestinal absorption of the by-products into the liver and blood. It is believed in Ayurveda that once the yeast enters into the blood, it will damage the processing of the seven tissues of the body consisting plasma, muscle, blood, fat, nervous tissue, bone, ovum and sperm.

  • I had an absolute life changing experience with Taking an Ayurvedic approach for coming out of my son’s eczema. We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.

I was suffering from Migraine headache almost everyday but after taking the medicines prescribed by Dr. Saini, my headache almost vanished. These Ayurvedic medicines helped me in controlling my stress magnificently. I hope my review could help others who are suffering from anxiety and stress or any other chronic disorder. Please try the Ayurvedic(herbal) medicines for once as they don't have any side effects. They also have the facility of Ayurvedic massage which can definitely help the hard-working professionals out there. I hope everyone could get this miraculous treatment of Ayurveda.

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.


    madhu !

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

  • This is truly a fantastic cleanse! Dr Saini guides you through every step and you will feel the benefits physically, mentally and emotionally. I’ve done other cleanses but the simplicity and effectiveness of this one is second to none.

  • I cannot recommend highly enough. This has been my first experience with Ayurvedic medicine and the Panchakarma cleanse and I can finally say that after years of striving for better health and wellbeing, I finally understand what is going to work for me moving forward. Having experience a traumatic event and subsequent PTSD 5 years ago, my gut and my body became increasingly compromised. In this time I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome and various ailments of the gut. I came to see Dr Saini and Pooja at a time that I felt frustrated with my years of work to see some more obvious progress with my healing. Having completed the Panchakarma cleanse, I am feeling fully renewed. Awake. Settled. I no longer struggle to wake each morning and get through each day. My appetite feels steady and all cravings have completely ceased. I now have some tools under my belt to fall back on when I know my digestive system needs a break. This cleanse has been a complete game changer. Thankyou Dr Saini and Pooja for you incredible guidance and support. Liz

I am able to sleep so much better and my general mental health has dramatically improved. Please consider the ancient practice of Ayurvedic Medicine for any aspect of your health. Dr Gurnam really cares and wants to work with you to give you the best possible health and wellbeing outcomes.
