Looking for homeopathic for Candida?
Here are 4 essential herbal substances that have been used effectively against Candida yeast infections.
1. Essiac (also known as Flor-Essence, Native Legend Tea, Can-Aid) is a popular herbal homeopathic for Candida combination made up of slippery elm, burdock, Turkish rhubarb, and sheep sorrel. Sheep sorrel (Rumex acetosella) appears to be the most powerful antifungal and anticancer component of the four-herb tonic. Researchers report that sheep sorrel is effective in breaking down tumors, soothing ulcers, and helping a long list of skin diseases. It contains carotenoids; chlorophyll; B complex vitamins; vitamins C, E, and K; calcium; iron; magnesium; silicon; copper; iodine; manganese; and zinc. Its mode of action may well be through chlorophyll to provide more oxygen to tissue cells. Oxygen in higher amounts counteracts cancer cells, viruses, fungi, and other infections and may be the sheep sorrel mechanism of immune system optimization.
2. Burdock root (Arctium lappa) is another homeopathic for Candida that has long been recognized by herbalists as a blood purifier. It, too, contains carotenoids, B-complex vitamins, vitamins C and E, chromium, magnesium, potassium, silicon, zinc, calcium, copper, manganese, selenium, and iron. Up to 45 percent of burdock may be made up of a substance called inulin. Inulin is thought to be responsible for this herb’s curative powers by combining with white blood cells. Japanese scientists have also discovered a chemical in burdock root that can reduce cell mutations and have named this ant tumor chemical “Burdock Factor.”
3. Slippery elm (Ulmus/ulva) is one of the better known herbal remedies, ll has traditionally been used as a treatment for ulcers, burns, cuts, hemorrhages, and other wounds. Its active component is a mucilage (soluble fiber) similar to the mucilage in flaxseed. Other components of slippery elm are gallic acid, phenols, tannins, starches, carotenoids, B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, magnesium, chromium, selenium, silicon, and zinc. Slippery elm is a natural antacid, an antibiotic, and a regulator of intestinal flora. It contains chemical components known to have antifungal and antitumor effects. Turkish rhubarb (Rheum palmatum) has strong bowel detoxification effects. In all forms of cancer and fungal infections, the elimination of toxins from the body is crucial to recovery. Its primary use is to help cleanse the blood of various toxins.
4. Turkish rhubarb is another herb that has a gentle laxative action, cleanses the liver, and supports the secretion of bile into the intestine. It contains carotenoids, B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, copper, iodine, manganese, potassium, silicon, sulfur, and zinc. Some of its active components include gallic, malic, oxalic, and tannic acids; bioflavonoids; pectin; resin; starch; and volatile oils. Turkish rhubarb also contains rhein, a chemical member of the anthraquinone family. Rhein has the ability to inhibit the growth of several pathogenic bacteria, parasites, and Candida in the intestinal tract.
These are some incredible homeopathic for Candida herbs and should be used with an overall program that covers every aspect of curing your yeast infection.
