When Yeast Attacks!

When I went through my own personal health crisis one of the main contributing factors for me was candida overgrowth (yeast infection).

For me, the candida outbreak reared its ugly head in the form of my skin. I would itch until my skin bled.

It also affected my joints. I would be in such pain that some days I could barely close and open my hands. I was in so much pain I became grumpy and I just wanted to be left alone to wallow in my misery.

Unless I cleaned up my diet the prognosis was not good.

Candida overgrowth can and does happen in our animals too. I see it quite often in animals that come through the clinic. More of the obvious signs are as below:

  • chewing or licking of the paws
  • dark red-rusty coloured fur between the toes
  • black skin (there will also be fur loss)
  • smelly and greasy fur
  • head shaking and ear infections
  • hair loss on the tail and upper back
  • seasonal allergies

Candida outbreaks can appear anywhere on our animals body. More often than not it can be the cause or can contribute to the below:

  • recurring ear infections
  • inflammation of the eyes (constant tears)
  • hot spots
  • urinary tract infections
  • constant itching
  • impacted anal glands
  • joint pain

Candida overgrowth does not need to be a life sentence.

The first step in combating candida is to reduce the yeast population with diet.

Speaking from my own experience I know that yeast live off sugar and starch.

Changing the diet to one that is high in protein and fat and low in carbs will help starve the candida.

It is important that we help our pets through the detoxing process. Yes, just like me your animal will go through a detox period.

Homeopathy can help support your animals liver and digestive system while they go through this process.

There are remedies available that can help combat the yeast build-up. In certain cases this may be all that is needed to help bring back into balance the organisms.

For me personally homeopathy was instrumental in helping me combat the yeast overgrowth.

If candida is an ongoing issue for your pet then please talk to me about booking in your animals chronic consultation.
