A yeastlike fungus, by the name of Candida (Monilia) albicans, commonly causing vaginal yeast infections and infant thrush.
The continual presence of Candida (Candidiasis) is becoming widespread as sugar imbalances, poor diets and extended drug treatments become more common throwing off the normal body balances. Additional contributing factors can be emotional stress, general physical weakness, hormonal changes (menopause, pregnancy), birth control pills and hormone pills.
If possible check your urine pH in the morning with a pH Test Strips. Urine pH should be under 7.0 and above 6.0 (acidic). If your urine is often alkaline (above 7.0) you can often change your diet to restore the acid/alkaline balance.
Below are suggestions for working with Candida using botanical medicine.
