How long does it take to get rid of intestinal candida if you live the appropriate diet and take anti-fungals?


And then can you eat fruit etc after that period of time?
----------

Sorry to tell you, but intestinal candidiasis is a big myth. Yeast forms are a part of the normal flora of the large intestine. Quacks make huge profits telling people that their symptoms (whatever they are) are due to intestinal yeast, and that they need to tweak these yeast with snake oil and diet modifications. Fruit intake could not have an effect on intestinal candida because sugar is absorbed well before it reaches the colon.

I'd suggest going to get a second opinion from a real doctor.  (+ info)

How can you tell if your cramps are menstrual or intestinal?


I tend to get really painful cramps that last for a few seconds and make me feel like I'm gonna throw up but when it's over I feel my intestines contracting and I feel like I have to poop. So how can you tell?
----------

Mestrual cramps will not make you need to have a bowel movement, and are usually confined to the lower abdominal area. Intestinal cramps occurr over a larger region of your abdomen, and you can sometimes feel 'movement' inside your abdomen as your body pushes waste to it's appropriate places. Menstrual cramps are very stationary, and tend to last a bit longer.  (+ info)

what are the symptoms of intestinal lymphoma cancer?


i know you'll feel sick and throw up and your stomach will hurt but what are the rest of the symptoms?can you give me some websites?thanks!
----------

Actually there really aren't any symptoms early on. As the lymph nodes swell they can push on the intestines causing a blockage which leads to a partial or complete bowel blockage. The treatment for lymphoma can be pretty tough but you can easily go into remission. Are you having symptoms that you aren't sure about or have you been diagnosed? The best web sites that I would recommend are webmd.com americancancersociety.com or mdanderson.com Hope this gives you what your looking for. Good luck to you!  (+ info)

How do you get rid of intestinal parasites, namely, tapeworms?


I know this sounds kinda gross but I really am curious as to how to cure someone of these pesky parasites. Thank you for your help...
----------

There are numerous types of tapeworms, each coming from different sources (poorly cooked pork, fish, fleas from dogs/cats). Depending upon the type of tapeworm you have, the treatment is different. If you are passing a tapeworm when you have a bowel movement, you should attempt to save a portion of the worm and have your physician send it to a lab to be tested and identified. After this is done, you can receive the appropriate treatment.

No matter what type of tapeworm, the treatment is an anti-parasitic drug. The type of drug depends upon the tapeworm. Hope this helps.  (+ info)

What are the chances of surviving intestinal cancer?

One danger is surgically removing an intestinal blockage is that the intestine may burst when cut?


risking abdominal infection. To avoid this danger such surgery is sometimes performed in a pressurized chamber. Explain how this help?
----------

Well, the bacteria in the large intestine produce gas, which will accumulate if the natural way out is blocked. Then, piercing the gut with a scalpel is much like piercing a balloon. If you 'inflate' the operation theater, the pressure difference across the intestinal wall will be relieved, so that bursting is prevented.  (+ info)

How Do You Get Rid Of HUMAN Intestinal Parasites?


And ANY other worms/parasites in the human body? This, again, is for my dad... :o

Please, give as much information as you can. Good websites and sources are appreciated, as well.
hes done that, and they didnt believe him. i really kinda do. hes lost weight, loosing hair on his legs... all kinds of other stuff
----------

My husband and I own an herbal store. You can use a bitter herb. Meaning it has to taste bitter. A great one to get is called wormwood. You can order it online from any herbal dealer or store. It tastes terrible but it really gets rid of worms and other intestinal critters. Also, it would be good to use senna along with it if he has any problems with constipation. Senna is also an herb. Just boil both herbs, slightly sweeten with honey, cool and drink as often as you need to. There are no side effects. Hope this is helpful. Best Wishes.  (+ info)

If antibiotics cause intestinal flora to be killed, is it permanent?


If probiotic acidophilus is taken, will it recover to normal flora? Do I have to take probiotics for throughout my life or I can stop after taking few days? If so how many days I have to take these probiotics? Any side effects of taking these probiotics?
----------

No its not permanent. Bacteria in the intestines are always being replenished. Taking probiotics is a fantastic idea when you are on antibiotics as antibiotics kills both good and bad bacteria. Take it during the antibiotic course and then about a week after that. That should be enough. Try and eat lots of probiotic yoghurt too. There should be no side effects to taking probiotics. Probiotics are good bacteria and can help aid digestion and return balance to the flora in the digestive system. If you dont take probiotics your body has to work extra hard to restore the balance back and you might develop thrush or immunity problems so taking probiotics is just super while on antibiotics. You can buy probiotic tablets, which I highly recommend, from the chemist for about $20. Just make sure you store them in the fridge as this keeps the bacteria alive.  (+ info)

How can I confirm my son has an intestinal allergy since he tests negative for all IGE allergies?


did the skin and patch test and he is negative. He is now 8 months old
----------

Since your son tested negative to allergy testing, he may have a sensitivity rather than a true allergy. Try keeping a food and symptom diary for a couple of weeks. Write down everything he eats or drinks, noting the times. Also write down any symptoms he experiences, again noting the times. You may see a pattern emerge.

If that doesn't work, I'd suggest taking him to a nutritionist who specializes in allergic diseases. They may be able to help you with an elimination diet that can pinpoint troublesome foods.
