Your Questions Answered: Burning Sensation All Around Mouth, Can You Cleanse If You Are Pregnant & Cysts On My Kidneys

Question: My 63 year old wife has been suffering with a burning sensation in her mouth, lips, tongue, throat, along with indigestion for over two years. We’ve researched and tried many things to elevate this to no avail. Is burning mouth syndrome something that can be healed? Is she full of yeast?

Candida is commonly found in mucosal layers such as the mouth, nose, throat, genital region, and is the main cause of fungal infections. Oral thrush occurs when an overgrowth of Candida develops in the mouth which can cause white patches, redness/soreness, burning sensation and dry skin in the mouth and lips. Having proper oral hygiene is crucial. Brushing your teeth regularly after every meal will help eliminate yeast from your mouth. You can make an antifungal mouthwash from essential oils to eliminate Candida and freshen your breath.Try adding 2-3 drops of peppermint/ spearmint/ tea tree or neem essential oil to water and use it as a mouthwash to kill the Candida in your mouth and freshen your breath. Swish the mixture in your mouth and always spit it out. Use them several times a day. Oil pulling is also another option for oral trush. Try using coconut oil or olive oil wich have strong antifungal properties.

If you have oral trush, you most likely have intestinal candidiasis as well if you are experiencing indigestion. Cutting out sugary foods can help to prevent Candida outbreaks, both in your mouth and elsewhere. Probiotics in CanXida Restore can help to rebalance the bacteria in your gut, and support your immune system. Restore is also formulated with digestive enzymes which help break down food to diminish iindigestion symptoms. You might need to take antimicrobial therapy like CanXida Remove to help get rid of biofilms that can also establish in the mouth creating more persistent candidiasis. The most effective treatment includes a combination of low-sugar diet, probiotics, and antifungals. As we age our stomach acid production lowers which is crucial for neutralizing pathogens and digesting food. If you have low stomach acid, you can take an HCL supplement before meals (increases acid production).

Question: It has been over five years since my first food allergy diagnosis as an adult and recently I have developed new ones. All of this has resulted in eating anxiety, which as a nursing mom of a 9-month old, I am finding quite difficult to deal with. My family and I have three children in total and we are a home-schooling family. Needless to say, there is a lot of beautiful work upon my shoulders – I love it but I have to admit that it does cause me a good deal of daily and chronic stress. You recommended that nursing and pregnant mothers should wait until finished breastfeeding to begin a cleanse. What are your recommendations in the meantime? Additionally, if I am not able to take any of the beautiful products you have created (because of tree nut allergies and nursing), what should I do?

Although you shouldn’t follow the full Candida diet while breastfeeding, you can modify the diet to a gentler version. Many new mothers suffer from yeast infections. These may often be related to hormonal changes. Eat small amounts of fruit: Low-GI fruits like pears, berries and green apples are best. Eat high quality carbohydrates. Beans, sweet potatoes, parsnips and squash will give you energy without spiking blood sugar. Avoid added sugars in sodas, processed meats, sauces, flavored yogurt. Focus on lean, healthy proteins like beef, chicken, turkey and fish. Many antifungals should not be taken by pregnant or nursing women. Instead incorporate natural antifungal foods in your diet like coconut oil, garlic, ginger, rutabaga, bone broth and Pau d’Arco tea. Probiotics should be safer to take while nursing, but still discuss them with your doctor. You can also add some fermented foods like kefir or sauerkraut.

Your body needs lots of nutrients while you are breastfeeding, so you should skip the cleansing stage of the diet entirely. There are other, more gentle, ways to cleanse your system without taking supplements or doing a cleanse. FIrst it is essential to keep hydrated to help kidneys clear out toxins. Also try a natural fiber supplement like psyllium/flax or make sure to get 30 grams of fiber daily from foods. You may benefit from multivitamin like CanXida Rebuild with added gut barrier nutrients like zinc, glutamin acid and slippery elm to heal your gut. Additionally you can add a liver-supportive supplement like milk thistle, or consuming bitter greens in teas, tinctures or salads. Massage can improve your blood flow and help to expel toxins faster. Saunas improve your blood flow and promote toxin elimination and boost your immune system. Skin brushing is a relaxing way to improve your lymphatic and blood circulation.

Question: I have a few small Cysts on my both Kidneys do you have any treatments

Renal cysts are sacs of fluid that form in the kidneys. Renal cysts become fairly common as people age and usually do not cause symptoms or harm. Because they rarely cause symptoms, renal cysts are most often found during imaging tests performed for other reasons. Your doctor will likely perform additional imaging tests to monitor complex renal cysts and distinguish benign cysts from cancer. Renal cysts are usually left alone and do not require treatment unless they are causing symptoms or harming kidney function. Instead, your health care provider may recommend that you have imaging tests, such as ultrasounds, over time to see whether your kidney cyst changes. Sometimes a simple kidney cyst goes away on its own. If treatment is required, your doctor may use sclerotherapy or surgery to drain the cyst and take steps to prevent its recurrence.

Sclerotherapy involves the insertion of a long needle through the skin and into the cyst under ultrasound guidance. The doctor will drain the cyst and fill it with an alcohol-based solution that causes the tissue to harden and shrink, reducing the chance of recurrence. The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis with a local anesthetic. Simple kidney cysts can’t be prevented. You can reduce your risk by drinking plenty of water (2 liters daily) and making sure you use less than 2,300 mg of sodium a day (less than 1,500 mg if you are older than 51, African-American, or have high blood pressure or long-term kidney disease).
