Preventing Candida in the Mouth
Posted on 6/20/2022 by Fern Creek Dentistry
|We are usually kept free from Candida by our good bacteria and immune system. If you're on antibiotics, undernourished, or on steroids or contraceptives, yeast and harmful bacteria can take over. The yeast multiplies in your mouth, resulting in unpleasant sensations. Candida is more likely to develop in those who have a weaker immune system than in those who have a good immune system. Thrush is a Candida infection of the mouth. In people with a suppressed immune system, it affects the palate, cheeks, lips, and tongue. People with a typically functioning immune system, as well as those with denture irritants or diabetes, might have thrush in their mouth. Thrush often has white patches in the mouth that look like curd. Don't use prescription drugs, have proper nutrition, and use oil pulling to prevent candida.
Steroids, antibiotics, and oral contraceptives, antibiotics, and steroids are thought to be the major causes of candida in many people. They eliminate the beneficial bacteria in our bodies while allowing the pathogenic bacteria and yeast to proliferate. Consult your doctor about alternative therapies that can help you replace beneficial bacteria in your stomach and eradicate dangerous yeast and germs.
It is best to avoid alcohol and processed carbs. Begin by removing sugar, which feeds yeast. Sugar may be found in a variety of foods, including candies, tea, desserts, alcohol, flours, and sauces. Because complex carbohydrates feed yeast, you should limit your diet of fruit, beans, bread, pasta, cereal, and potatoes. You want to deprive the yeast of nutrients. Yeast may be eradicated by consuming green vegetables, healthy fats such as coconut oil, olive oil, nuts & seeds, and eggs. Organic chicken, wild salmon, and turkey are additional excellent food choices that you may integrate into your diet. Onions and garlic are excellent additions to your diet.
You can remove bacteria from your mouth by swishing an organic coconut oil in it every morning and evening. This technique is known as oil pulling. Spit the oil into the trash, not the sink, after you have completed 'pulling' it.
