Can You Benefit From the Candida Diet?

Can You Benefit From the Yeast-Free Diet?

Do you have Candida or yeast symptoms such as constipation, bloating, abdominal pain, heartburn, gas and indigestion? No one likes talking about these embarrassing symptoms, yet it turns out these gastrointestinal symptoms are very common. You may be tempted to try over-the-counter medications for symptom relief, only to find that the symptoms keep coming back.

Did you also know that Candida can cause symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, headaches and much more? Have you ever wondered if you could benefit from a Candida Diet or Yeast-Free Eating Program (also known as a Candida Cleanse or Sugar Detox)?

Make the Yeast Connection
  • Have you ever been prescribed antibiotics?
  • Have you ever been on birth control pills or steroid medications?
  • Do you crave sugar and simple carbohydrates, such as breads, cakes, and cookies?
  • Do you have recurrent yeast infections?
  • Do you have skin problems such as rashes, eczema, itching or hives?

These are some common problems caused by yeast overgrowth, or Candidiasis, and until you solve the underlying cause of your symptoms by eliminating the yeast, the symptoms won’t go away.  Also keep in mind that Candida symptoms are not limited to the gastrointestinal tract.

Take a look at the symptoms of yeast overgrowth:
  • Bloating
  • Headaches
  • Belching
  • Fatigue
  • Excessive gas
  • Skin rashes
  • Cramps
  • Immune suppression
  • Pain
  • Chemical sensitivity
  • Indigestion
  • Vaginal yeast infections
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Heartburn
  • Anxiety
  • Diarrhea
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle aches
  • Hives
  • Athlete’s foot
  • Thrush, a white coating on the tongue
  • Fungal infections under fingernails and toenails

Wouldn’t you like to know what is causing your symptoms so that you can address them naturally?

What is Candida or Yeast Overgrowth?

Candida Albicans is a fungus which lives and overgrows in our intestines causing an imbalance in the normal bacteria of the colon so that we get less normal healthy bacteria, and more yeast. It produces 180 chemical toxins capable of causing the above symptoms. As these yeast toxins are absorbed in the colon and enter the bloodstream, they can cause symptoms beyond these sites in other areas of your body, so the list of possible symptoms is endless. Further, an individual with increased levels of yeast in his system often becomes allergic to yeast, and therefore, allergic to food products which contain yeast, such as wine, beer, breads, etc.

How Antibiotics Contribute to Yeast

Whenever an individual takes antibiotics, those antibiotics are meant to kill abnormal bacteria in the infection. Unfortunately, the antibiotics kill not only bad bacteria, but they also kill normal (good) bacteria that keep you healthy in other areas of the body.

Mainstream Medicine’s Approach to Yeast

Unfortunately, yeast overgrowth is a problem of which many mainstream physicians are completely unaware. Instead of addressing the underlying cause of their patients’ symptoms, they treat the individual symptoms, usually with the familiar “anti-drugs: antibiotics, antihistamines, antidepressants, anti-inflammatories, antispasmodics, and so forth. Mainstream doctors typically prescribe heartburn or antacid medications such as Rolaids, and proton-pump inhibitors such as “The Purple Pill.”  These medications are commonly given with antibiotics, which wipe out the good bacteria in your gut and can lead to many more symptoms.

It is not uncommon for doctors to give what we call one of the alphabet letter diagnoses such as include irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), to name a few.  This really means that the doctor does not know what is causing your symptoms.  These diagnoses only describe the symptom or set of symptoms you are having.  It’s time to look further to discover the underlying cause.

How You Can Get Rid of  Yeast

In order to get rid of yeast, it is essential that you starve the yeast, kill the yeast, and replace the normal bacteria in the colon, which is Lactobacillus Acidophilus.  At the Hotze Health & Wellness Center, we recommend a yeast-free, grain-free eating program that eliminates dietary sources of yeast and other fungi, vinegar and fermented products, and sugar and carbohydrate-rich foods that provide nourishment to yeast.

Take our Symptom Checker to find out if you have symptoms of yeast overgrowth.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
