Causes of Candida






Globally conscious herbal teas and supplements










The most common cause of Candida yeast growth is the excessive use of antibiotics. Many people take antibiotics over and over because of reoccurring infections of the bladder, sinus or throat. Teenagers are given antibiotics for acne. Because of this repeated or long-term use of antibiotics the good bacteria in the gut is mostly killed. The Candida in the gut isn’t affected by the antibiotics so it will multiply rapidly and will be out of control. Normally the bacteria in the gut will keep the Candida in check but because the bacteria has been killed this doesn’t take place.

Another source of antibiotics is consuming large amounts of beef, chicken, pork and veal. In 1991, the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta stated that one-half of the fifteen million pounds of antibiotics produced in the US each year is used on poultry and livestock. They’re routinely added to their food. Residual amounts of these antibiotics remain in the meat. Besides upsetting the delicate balance of the digestive tract this excessive use of antibiotics is causing resistant strains of bacteria and is more common than most people realize.
