Candida albicans is a common bacterium which most of us have on our skin and in our intestines. Problems like acne, bloating, oral and vaginal thrush, fatigue, etc, occur when the candida numbers get out of control. This can be due to a number of factors including a diet high in refined carbohydrates and sugars, stress, long term illness, weakened immune system, use of antibiotics and contraceptive pills. It is important to treat thrush internally with great supplements such as oregano oil while also maintaining a healthy sugar free diet until the candida levels are balanced and not causing symptoms.
