CANDIDA and Fungal Fighter
Pau D’Arco - The Exotic Herb Helping to Treat Candida, Yeast and Fungal Infections
There is a beautiful pink flowering tree native in the Amazonian rainforest, which the locals refer to as “Pink Lapacho”. This exotic tree, known in the western world as Pau D’Arco, produces from its bark, a therapeutic active nutrient called “lapachol” – a potent agent used for its anti-fungal activity.
Pau D’Arco has been traditionally used for a wide range of conditions, including yeast and fungal infections.
Thrush, vaginitis, genital candidiasis, tinea, athlete’s foot, fungal nail infection, fungal skin infection, nappy rash, allergies, sugar cravings may be symptoms and signs of an opportunistic fungal or yeast infection.
Candida albicans is a type of yeast or yeast-like parasitic fungus. It is one of the many micro-organisms naturally found in the body – generally the skin, digestive and reproductive tracts, as well as the mouth. A healthy immune system can contain the level of yeast, fungal and micro-organisms in the body. However, when the immune system is compromised and there is increased stress, poor nutrition, with a high intake of sugar and yeast in the diet, yeasts or fungi can proliferate.
Treating candida or any other fungal or yeast infestation naturopathically involves a more comprehensive approach which includes:
- Dealing with the excess level of yeast or fungi using probiotics and anti-fungal herbs such as Pau D’Arco, Golden Seal and Garlic
- Avoiding foods such as sugar, honey, processed or packaged foods, sweets, pastries, alcohol, dried fruits, limit fresh fruits due to their fructose content, fermented foods and minimise dairy and grains
- Addressing the underlying cause – stress, compromised immunity, hygiene – washing the infected area to prevent the spread of harmful micro-organisms
Nature’s Sunshine Pau D’Arco:
- Traditionally used for its antifungal activity.
- Aids or assists in the maintenance and improvement of general wellbeing.
Pau D’Arco, fight fungus and yeast infections – naturally.
