Here is the natural yeast infection treatment for dogs, process. Since a yeast infection is a condition of imbalance, this problem did not happen overnight. The deterioration of the intestinal environment that causes candida overgrowth, does not appear ' out of the blue '. It has been a slow and gradual process. So, reversing this problem will be a slow and gradual process also. Clearly understand this. There is ' no quick fix ' for a chronic yeast infection.
Try to think of the yeast fungus as a hungry, sugar consuming machine. You will need to restrict your dog's access to, or better yet eliminate, certain foods which are feeding the yeast. These foods are creating an environment in which the yeast thrives.
These foods are sugars and starches. The body takes fruits and vegetables, grains, legumes, peas, potatoes, sweet potatoes and other unnecessary ingredients such as tapioca, converts them to sugars and ...Voila! A feast for the fungus!
Avoiding the yeast friendly foods will help, but diet changes alone are not enough. Along with these necessary dietary changes, a successful dog yeast infection treatment plan, must include anti fungal herbs and support supplements, that will eradicate the candida albicans yeast overgrowth, and restore balance within the intestinal realm.
This candida cleanse regimen works for people, as well as dogs. It is also wise to start the cleanse with a 24 hour fasting period. Yes, that means don't feed your dog, but it also means you're starving the nasty yeast!
Let's get started. There are four important steps included in the yeast infection treatment process.
In order for the yeast infection treatment process to be successful, you will need to make the necessary food adjustments, and stop any other contributing factors such as grain based treats, raw hide chews and peanut butter. Give your dog healthy raw or dehydrated treats instead.
You will also need time. Lot's of time.
1- Probiotics - are live micro organisms that have many beneficial health effects. They provide essential functions in the body. Gut beneficial organisms promote gut health, and build strong immune function. Probiotics are needed to reseed the intestinal tract with a variety of beneficial micro organisms. This will help to repair the inflamed intestinal lining and prevent the leakage of undigested proteins, toxins and fungus into the bloodstream.
Probiotic Eleven - ( Stock # 1510-1 ) Contains 11 strains of important, gut-beneficial organisms for promotion of gut health and immune response. I recommended this product to repopulate the intestinal tract with a wide variety of beneficial microorganism.
2- Kill the Yeast- a healthy body is host to a delicate balance of yeast and friendly microflora. Yeast is a good thing under normal moderate circumstances. However, that balance is easily compromised through poor diet, drugs and medications.This turns the body into a breeding ground for yeast and fungal infections. Excesses of yeast and fungus can compromise the immune, digestive and urinary systems.
Yeast/Fungal Detox - ( Stock # 508-9 ) is a potent detoxification product formulated to inhibit the growth of unfriendly organisms and help restore balance.
3 - Support the Liver - The liver performs over 500 important functions in the body daily. It supports digestive functions by secreting bile for emulsification of fat, controls the metabolism of nutrients and serves as a reservoir for many nutrients and metabolites. The liver’s central position in the body, and involvement with many metabolic functions, make it's job a hard one. The liver's role in the processing of drugs and other foreign substances is among its most difficult and stressful tasks.
Liver Cleanse Formula - ( Stock # 1010-3 ) is a blend of herbs and nutrients specially formulated to nourish and protect the liver to support its natural cleansing functions.
*** Please note: This product is called LIV-A Stock # 1010-8 in Canada ***
4 - Enzymes - break down proteins and are especially critical to good health because undigested proteins have been linked to a variety of health concerns, including allergies. Often, these undigested proteins result in a false positive, when allergy testing. When enzymes are given between meals, they may help digest foreign proteins in the blood ( yeast cell die off ) and stimulate the immune system. Scientific studies have shown that protease enzymes help protect the intestines from parasites and other organisms that may weaken the intestinal system.
Protease Plus - ( Stock # 1841-7 ) To break down undigested proteins and to help prevent yeast cell die off. Give on an empty stomach between meals.
When starting a program to eliminate and rebalance yeast in the body, while using yeast infection treatment aids, it is important to know two things.
This is why yeast infection treatment takes time, lot's of time. You will need patience and determination to see this process through, so that you can get your dog back to a place of homeostasis. Balance, in other words!
Yeast cell die off refers to what happens when candida organisms die. Living candida fungus organisms cause symptoms because they release metabolic waste products into the body. Even worse, when they die they release even more toxic waste. So, it will take your dog's body lots of time to clear out the dead and dying yeast cells and the toxic waste they emit.
