Question: I have suffered for years with prurigo nodularis. I get kenalog injections in my scalp and on my back, neck, and arms. They cover the sore sites, it never gets better anymore. It’s a suffering. I’m wondering if the candida book and diet would help or a diet and detox for eczema.
It is not known what causes Prurigo Nodularis, or makes the skin react in this way. However, once the skin has become itchy, scratching and rubbing will make the condition worse. Prurigo may start after an insect bite or under stress. Up to 80% of people with Prurigo are atopic meaning they also have another hypersensitivity reaction such as dermatitis or asthma. To treat nodular prurigo more naturally some people report it helps cutting out processed foods, avoiding alcohol, reducing sugar, ointments like topical vitamin D3, cryotherapy to shrink the nodules and tea tree oil to prevent infections. Eczema just like Prurigo usually afflicts those who suffer from allergies and asthma, thus indicating a root cause, intestinal permeability. Atopic dermatitis including eczema and prurigo is frequently linked to to intestinal permeability or “leaky gut”, which is often the result of Candida overgrowth.
An imbalance in the gut leads to yeast overgrowth which is able to form tiny gaps in the gut wall allowing particles and toxins to escape. The immune system then creates a lot of inflammation and hypersensitivity incuding the skin. To eliminate or reduce skin sensitivities and other digestive issues, the best strategy is to start healing the gut. Following a low sugar Candida diet is a great start, and some supplements can help to repair the gut and restore its integrity. Besides removing offending foods, eradicating the yeast overgrowth requires antimicrobial therapy like Remove which has 12 powerful antifungals. Finally it is important to add a high quality probiotic. Probiotics perform very important tasks during a Candida cleanse. They help to rebalance the microflora in your gut, regulate acidity in your intestines, and boost your immune system.
Question: Do you find a connection with candida and B12 deficiency and why? Pernicious anaemia?
An overgrowth of Candida and vitamin B12 deficiency is connected. Often when a person is suffering from Candida it prevents their bodies from producing and absorbing essential nutrients that the body needs in order to stay healthy. Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) is one of the most essential vitamins our body needs as it is required to help keeping the body’s nerve cells working properly. Often a person who is deficient in Vitamin B12 will have a much lower red blood cell count than normal, and this impacts on the immune system, allowing the body to become more susceptible to suffering different types of infections including Candida overgrowth. Unfortunately, the onset of candida can impair the ability to absorb vitamins, and so this can lead to reduced ability to absorb vitamin B12, which in turn reduces the body’s ability to fight infection, which in turn then goes on to allow the yeast infection grow further. It then can become a vicious cycle.
So, it is important to recognise the link between candida and vitamin B12, and make sure that if any symptoms are shown of either candida albicans or vitamin B12 deficiency spotted, then seek medical advice. Antifungal therapy is essential for eliminating excess yeast growth in the gut. CanXida Remove includes a high dose of biofilm busting antifungals like caprylic acid to ensure Candida stays in check. Probiotics like CanXida Restore help repopulate the gut with beneficial bacteria and optimize the gut environment. Systemic enzymes have been shown to inhibit and disrupt biofilm formation and digestive enzymes help lessen symptoms of die-off from the yeast.
Question: What are your thoughts on blood zappers for candida. they are saying that the blood electrification is a good protocol for getting rid of candida. was wanting to see your opinion about this devices.
If you are referencing transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) this is a therapy that uses low voltage electrical current to provide pain relief. This consists of a battery-powered device that delivers electrical impulses through electrodes placed on the surface of your skin. The electrodes are placed at or near nerves where the pain is located or at trigger points. This form of therapy has been used or is being studied to treat chronic pain conditions such as osteoarthritis, fibromylgia, low back pain and neuropathies.
There are several risk factors where you should not use this form of therapy. This could increase bleeding at the tissue site or increase the risk of bleeding in persons with bleeding disorders. This form of therapy is not recommended in pregnant women. TENS therapy should be avoided if you have heart disease, heart failure or arrhythmias. TENS therapy can also increase blood circulation, which may increase the risk of dislodging a blood clot. Although this form of therapy has been studied to relieve pain, there are no current evidence to indicate it can help with any type of bacterial, viral, or yeast infection.
Do not use this device or any other electrical device advertised on the internet for this purpose. Some devices may claim they are blood zappers for Canidida but they have no clinical evidence that they work. Instead seek profesional health care advice from a trusted health care provider. Antifungal and probiotic therapy alongside lifestyle and diet changes are the most well studied and clinically proven methods to eradicate Candida overgrowth and restore gut balance. Our two formulas Remove and Restore are backed by science and extensively proven to manage yeast infections.
