I remember writing my book Candida Yeast: A Practical Handbook for Sufferers on Thrush and Candida in the prestigious Wellcome library in London and delving into some of the early textbooks on the subject of Thrush in the mouths of babies and children.
An early 18C book written by an eminent childrens’ physician bewailed the things that nurses did to little ones so afflicted, in their efforts to scrub the white mucous off tongues and cheeks. Instead, he taught that what went into the mouths and down the throats of these babies and children had influence upon the presence of the white mucous.
He recommended that wet nurses suckling babies should have their ale and porter rations restricted or removed by their employers. So breastmilk became non-alcoholic! Alcohol for everyone when consumed in regular, heavy amounts causes intestinal Candida and Thrush of the throat and mouth.
Perhaps every so often those in charge of babies unknowingly allow a build-up of fizzy drinks, cookies, chocolate or whatever, maybe easy-eating foods and snacks like cheese. A surfeit of such foodstuffs will inevitably allow Candida to overgrow all over the digestive system and my books show this very clearly.
Another woman wrote in to ask if my books would be any good for her stomach reflux which was being caused by Candida. I had to explain to her twice to raise her awareness, as she did not appear to understand or have any idea why the Candida was there. I had to say that until and unless she gets to grips with the reason why Candida is present in her digestive system, an upset stomach and refluxing gullet will just keep happening. Look to your Mercury teeth filling!!!
My books on Candida are wonderful at explaining the underlying causes that prevail throughout, not just localised treatment options, or dietary cookbooks alone. Thrush is a serious infestation by fungi of your body under all sorts of conditions, you need to read up and learn about it, to fight it off.
