60 to 70 Million People are Affected by All Digestive Diseases (1)
Over 15 Million People Have Irritable Bowel Disease (2)
We all love going out to eat and indulging in our favorite treats, of tasty dishes and desserts. However, rich food can take a toll on our digestive tract and cause some really uncomfortable, even painful, symptoms.
Have you been told that you have IBS, or irritable bowel syndrome? Some gastrointestinal experts still seem to be baffled by this disorder. Not only do conventional doctors state that it is it difficult to diagnose, they say there is no cure. We beg to differ.
The cause of gastrointestinal symptoms such as those with IBS is actually not a mystery at all. IBS is commonly caused by imbalances in the bacteria of the gut caused by Candida (3), or yeast overgrowth. Food intolerances and allergies can also cause irritating gastrointestinal symptoms. (4)
Symptoms of Yeast Overgrowth
The most common symptoms of yeast overgrowth are:
fungal nail infections
suppression of the immune system
We all have good, beneficial bacteria in our gut, but when it becomes out of balance, yeast can overgrow and cause problems in our digestive tract. Taking antibiotics, birth control pills, steroids and eating a diet filled with sugar and simple carbohydrates can lead to this imbalance and cause yeast to overgrow in the colon.
Natural Solution for Candida
So how do you obtain a healthy digestive tract? First, you need to cut sugars and simple carbohydrates out of your diet. Next you need to kill the yeast with a prescription form of nystatin or a yeast cleanse. Then you need to restore the good bacteria that your body needs with probiotics. By cleansing your body of this excess yeast, you can resolve your symptoms and feel much healthier.
