About Candida?

Treatment with Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture

Candidiasis is an infection caused by yeast (a type of fungus) called Candida.

Some species of Candida can cause infection in people; the most common is Candida Albicans.

Candida normally lives on the skin and inside the body, in places such as the mouth, throat, gut, and vagina, without causing any problems.

Candida can trigger an infection if it grows out of control or if it enters deep into the body (for example, into the bloodstream or internal organs such as the kidney, heart, or brain).

Candida can also cause a yeast infection.

Alan Chen says Candida is becoming commonplace as general immunity declines in the modern world.

TCM has many herbals that can help reduce the Candida in your body as well as yeast infections. Alan Chen also found that sweets like sugar make Candida much worse. Lifestyle is also an issue, Alan Chen found, and many of his female or male patients get the problem from contact with their partners, so caution is needed.
