NATURAL TREATMENT OF CANDIDA INFECTIONS
As a Naturopath, many of my clients contact me regarding reoccurring Candida (yeast) infections. Thankfully, these types of fungal infections respond very well to nutritional treatments and lifestyle advice.
Women are predisposed to Candida infections due to fluctuations in the hormone Estrogen, birth control pills and antibiotics. Many women can suffer needless secondary infections with thrush after a course of antibiotics for a bacterial infection.
Chronic Candidiasis can also affect the entire body with symptoms such as:
- Premenstrual Syndrome
- Frequent Bladder Infections (Cystitis)
- Rectal Itching
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Cramps, Bloating and Flatulence
- Decreased Energy and Concentration
- Decreased Libido
- General Malaise
- Depression and Irritability
- Psoriasis and Eczema
- Food and other Allergies
- Carbohydrate Craving and Weight Gain
If you are currently experiencing any of the above don’t waste another minute suffering in silence. Come and learn how to get on top of Candida infections once and for all!
Women are under increasing pressure to be all things to all people and the need to juggle the demands of family, friends, work and other responsibilities can at times be overwhelming.
If you are experiencing stress, anxiety, mood swings, period problems, etc. then you need some help to get your health and wellbeing back in balance, so that you are better able to meet the demands of everyday life.
This is especially important if you want to start a family, because getting pregnant can be a challenge when your body is out of whack.
Natural fertility focuses on the overall health of both parents.
For the mum to be this entails a comprehensive health assessment, a Body Composition Analysis, charting your monthly cycle to pinpoint your best chances to conceive, keeping a log of your temperature, and experimenting with a new diet and lifestyle regime. It may also involve a detoxification program and or a weight loss program.
Infertility is commonplace. IVF is expensive and time-consuming and offers about a 5% chance of success. All of this while you are forced to endure hormone treatments which literally run your life.
The natural approach works in harmony with your body and provides a common sense and nutritionally rich framework from which to create a baby.
The father-to-be’s health is also taken into consideration and he may also be required to follow a natural health program to increase your chances of successfully conceiving.
Preconception Care is the buzzword to explain all of the above measures that are taken to increase your chances of getting pregnant and having a healthy baby.
There are numerous nutrients to enhance fertility and ensure the health of your baby. Learn more about preconception care by contacting us to book a Naturopathic Fertility Assessment at my Naturopathic clinic today.

NUTRITION FOR BREASTFEEDING MUM’S
Nutritional deficiencies are commonplace among breastfeeding mums. Your rapidly growing baby is drawing the best of your nutrients from you and leaving you with what’s left!
Unless you have a stellar diet full of nuts, seeds, fruit, vegetables and high quality protein, you will no doubt find yourself tired, rundown, depressed and generally lacking in health and vitality.
Add to this the increased demands of looking after a new baby and other children, getting little sleep and keeping up the myriad of tasks women are expected to do and it isn’t long before health conditions become a significant drain on the body.
I prescribe a range of nutrients specially designed to help pregnant and breastfeeding women keep up with these increased demands. Nutritional supplementation is essential to prevent nutritional deficiencies from depleting your health and vitality.
