When it comes to preventing and treating food allergies and intolerances, gut health is essential. Food intolerances can sometimes be linked to Candida overgrowth. This is due to intestinal permeability often known as Leaky Gut Syndrome, which is frequently caused by Candida. An imbalance in the intestinal flora leads to a Candida overgrowth which attaches to the intestinal walls and is able to form tiny gaps in the gut wall which allows for food particles and Candida toxins to escape. These particles are then attacked by the immune system causing a lot of inflammation and sensitivity to foods. To eliminate or reduce food sensitivities and other digestive issues like constipation, bloating, belching and gas, the best strategy is to treat the underlying cause and start healing the gut.

Question: I was told many years ago I had candida Albicans but all the doctors dismissed it as no big deal if you don’t have aids or cancer your fine! Well I’m not fine I fell terrible and it turned out that last year I found that I had h pylori that I did a antibiotic therapy for a few days! My question to is I have flare ups that just knock me on my butt! Brain fog, stomach pains, total back pains! Is this actually candidate flare ups that can cause all this?

Candida albicans is the most common opportunistic pathogen that is naturally present in the GI tract. There are various toxic factors produced by candida and H-Pylori and they become an issue when your immune is compromised. The best way to tackle candida and H-Pylori is to not give the opportunistic pathogen the tools to grow. Following a low inflammation and gut health-focused lifestyle while healing the gut lining is essential. Strengthening your gut bacteria will help your microbiome fight H-pylori and candida. Looking after the gut will keep immune cells strong. The first step is to remove offending foods and substances that are keeping you sick. This includes refined carbohydrates and sugar, substances like alcohol and tobacco, and other medications.

Question: Does taking the pills and liquid required before a colonoscopy eliminate all the good flora in the digestive tract?

Preparing for a colonoscopy requires clearing the bowel with fasting, a laxative drink and, in some cases an enema. Laxative use can alter the microbiome and lower the diversity of some bacterial species however a single dose of laxatives will not have a signficant impact and research suggest your microbiome will be back to normal in about two to four weeks. However chronic laxative use does have long term consequences in microbial diversity and is linked with dysbiosis and higher risk of certain diseases. Some doctors prescribe a two liter dose on the morning of the procedure but studies suggest it might be better for your gut microbiome to do two separate doses, one in the evening and one in the morning.

Nonetheless I would recommend taking a high quality probiotic after the procedure. It is important to bring back healthy colonies of beneficial gut microbes. Reintroducing beneficial bacteria back like Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus will help mantain your gut balance and prevent opportunistic pathogens from colonizing your gut. These probiotic strains have the most value in boosting immunity, lowering inflammation and rebalancing your gut flora. CanXida Restore includes these probiotic strains with additional digestive enzymes which are essential for restoring proper digestion and helping absorb nutrients.
