How thrush prevents you from losing weight and 5 more facts about “overweight hormones”

According to statistics, three out of four women regularly encounter thrush. And it’s not about a nice neat lady with milk krynkami, and you know about what. Thrush, or candidiasis, is a disease caused by yeast-like fungi of the genus Candida and well known to all. However, everyone knows that such a diagnosis may be an obstacle to a slim figure. Details – in the material endocrinologist Natalia Zubareva.Due to the prevalence of this condition and the flow of advertising, which promises a quick and easy cure, many treat candida infection rather frivolously. And in vain, because it can easily cause the development of more dangerous conditions, such as the threat of pregnancy, premature birth, preeclampsia. And this is not to mention the unpleasant symptoms that accompany candidiasis. You may be overwhelmed by feelings of fatigue, drastic mood swings, anxiety, and insomnia. Often there is a kind of causeless bad breath and a white patina on the tongue, at its root. Almost always thrush is swelling, constipation, flatulence, heartburn, gastritis, stomach pains of varying severity. If you have allergies, acne spills out – it is also worth the alert, especially when some of the above symptoms are present in the aggregate.

And, finally, candidiasis is accompanied by sweets and flour, as well as weight problems. Here everything is more than interconnected. Candida fungus “loves” sugar, fruit and fruit juices, alcohol, simple carbohydrates and cereals, which in the process of digestion from complex carbohydrates are transformed into simple, in other words, into the same sugar. These are products from which we easily gain weight and get a bunch of health problems (except for cereals in an adequate amount, I would exclude from the list). And they also “feed” the fungus, creating for it sanatorium-resort conditions for intensive reproduction.

The accompanying factors are the problems with the immune system, stress, difficulties in the work of the digestive system and the already existing hormonal problems. In other words, your body may become corny to the beginning of spring, at the same time you will experience a surge of emotions, and not necessarily negative ones: the offer of a hand and a heart, by the way, is also stressful. Zaton zaet and zapite their experiences – and now thrush friendly waving you a pen. Well, then its symptoms, which I wrote about a little earlier, at best, greatly complicate the process of losing weight by the summer or make it relevant if before with the weight everything was fine. By the way, dramatically losing pounds against the background of thrush can also, it depends on the individual characteristics of the organism, it is much less common, and together with the accompanying problems with health, such harmony will not bring joy.

So, and without Candida, we are nowhere – it is an integral part of the normal microflora of the mouth, vagina and colon of all healthy people, and its excess in the body disrupts the process of removing estrogens – female sex hormones that perform many functions, leading to its accumulation in large quantities blood.

In my second book of the series “The Waltz of Hormones” in the chapter on estrogen, I tell you in detail how to balance them. Now let me remind you about the products that help to fight candidiasis: vegetables, fermented products (made with fermentation, such as kefir, yogurt, sauerkraut), green smoothies, flax seed and chia seeds, cranberry juice, fresh garlic.

In addition, as a doctor of preventive and integral medicine, I recommend using probiotics (bifidobacteria and lactobacteria), vitamin C (1000 mg per day), grapefruit seed extract – 200 mg 2-3 times a day to support immunity and restraint, essential oils oregano (oregano), cloves, tea tree. It is possible inside, 1-2 drops to a glass of water, and drink in small sips during the day. Or externally, adding 7-10 drops to a body cream.

Patients periodically come to me at the reception, who declare from the threshold: “My weight is hormonal, I can’t do anything!”. And there is some truth in this, but do not confuse the cause with the investigation and shift responsibility from yourself. Often we ourselves provoke a hormonal failure, and then the “bad” hormones begin to control our brain and body. I have already written about estrogens, but there are other of his comrades, who in connection with the topic of our conversation should be known “by sight”.

Here are 5 extra weight hormones:
Cortisol is a hormone that is produced by the adrenal glands. It is considered to be a stress hormone, but it is also a hormone of energy and vigor. Elevated cortisol levels increase blood pressure and sugar levels.
