Naturopathic Treatment for Chronic Thrush

Thrush symptoms are caused by the overgrowth of candida in the vaginal tract. Candida is a normal part of the vaginal flora, however when it overgrows it can become an issue and cause uncomfortable symptoms due to inflammation. There are two main reasons as to why candida can overgrow and cause issues:

01

Poor immune function.

02

Disrupted vaginal microflora. The vagina is lined with millions of bacteria, both good and bad. The good help keep the bad in check. Specific good bacteria in the vagina keep candida from overgrowing. When these good bacteria numbers are lowered, candida can overgrow, causing thrush symptoms.

Factors such as antibiotic use, food allergies/intolerances, nutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalances and poor diet and lifestyle habits affect immune function and the balance of vaginal microflora, which is why these factors are associated with chronic thrush.

Therefore, the treatment of thrush must address these underlying causes in order to improve immunity and re-establish the balance of the vaginal microflora that will help keep candida in check.
