Colloidal Silver, Other

Natural Treatment for Candida Albicans

Yeast infections of all types are becoming more and more prevalent, due to the overuse of antibiotics. Candida albicans infections are the most common type, and they can easily spread throughout the body. If the candida overgrowth is not treated it may become excessive and lead to a myriad of chronic health concerns such as:

  • Excessive fatigue
  • indigestion
  • heartburn
  • gas and bloated stomach
  • leaky gut syndrome
  • nausea, constipation, diarrhea, colitis and other gastrointestinal disorders
  • vaginal infections and menstrual difficulties
  • urinary tract infections (UTI’s)
  • blood sugar disorders
  • skin disorders
How Colloidal Silver can Help Treat Yeast Infections:

Colloidal silver is an antifungal agent, that has proven to be more effective than even Fluconazole (antifungal antibiotic not without side effects) when it comes to yeast infections.

A Korean study published in the Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology demonstrated that colloidal silver is an excellent antifungal in its own right and showed potent activity against clinical isolates of various fungal strains. Research revealed that silver nanoparticles (colloidal silver) were very effective against Candida species (yeast infections, vaginal thrush) as well as Trichophyton species (athlete’s foot, jock itch and ring worm, hair, scalp and nail fungus).

And another study demonstrated that… “silver nanoparticles are potent inhibitors of C. albicans biofilm formation. SEM observations are consistent with an overall loss of structure of biofilms mostly due to disruption of the outer cell membrane/wall and inhibition of filamentation.TEM indicates the permeabilization of the cell wall and subsequentdisruption of the structural layers of the outer fungal cell wall. The anti‑biofilm effects are via cell wall disruption.”  To read full study: “Effect of silver nanoparticles on Candida albicans biofilms: An ultrastructural study” available as  a downloadable PDF click here
