Battling Candida with a Colon Cleanse
Colon cleansing may help decrease Candida bacteria yeast infections of the vagina. Candida bacteria like to live in improperly functioning parts of the alimentary canal (the digestive system) and in women, the vagina. A colon cleanse will flush the build-up of Candida bacteria and other toxins out of your alimentary canal and thus, help rebalance the ph level in the vagina.
A colon that is not functioning well can cause a multitude of health problems like the yeast infections mentioned above. If you have chronic yeast infections, constipation, diarrhea, or irregular bowel movements, you could probably benefit from colon cleansing. You could also benefit from a colon cleanse if you are having difficulty losing weight, have stiff joints, or chronic bad breath! The health of your colon affects your entire body.
A poorly-functioning colon is usually the result of eating the typical “American” diet. Red meat, animal fat, refined sugar, processed foods, and all dairy products (except yogurt) are slow to digest and are therefore more apt to get stuck to the walls of the colon. Fast food, the staple food of many people today, is especially bad for your colon.
A colon cleanse followed by a better, more colon-friendly diet will help eliminate many health problems. A colon-friendly diet includes high fiber foods like apples, pears, beans, and whole grains. Yogurt is also good for your alimentary canal. It contains live, good-for-you bacteria that assists in digestion and is especially good at keeping you from getting a yeast infection. You can also add probiotic and herbal supplements to your diet to further proper digestion and elimination. Ideally, you should have a comfortable, healthy bowel movement after every meal. If not, you may want to jump-start your colon health by using a colon cleansing system.
The quickest colon cleanse is a colonic, also called colon hydrotherapy. A colonic basically rinses out your colon with warm water. This should be done by a certified hydrotherapist and is not recommended for everyone. Herbs combined with fasting or herbs with a very restricted diet can also be used for colon cleansing. These are slower, at-home methods, usually lasting up to a week. Whatever method you choose, maintain your clean colon by staying away from foods that clog your colon or plan on scheduling another colon cleanse.
Pay attention to your body. It may be trying to tell you to flush out your system. Many times, such as with yeast infections, we treat the symptom instead of the underlying problem. But recent studies have shown that seventy-five to ninety percent of all health problems stem from problems originating in the colon. From this statistic, your colon health should be a primary consideration.
If you already have been diagnosed with a colon
problem such as diverticulitis or Crohn’s Disease, be
sure to consult with your gastroenterologist before doing any
type of colon cleansing. If you are on prescription drugs and
want to use an herbal colon cleanse, consult your pharmacist
or doctor. Some herbs can change the absorption rate of pharmaceuticals.
