In order to know how to treat thrush, it is important that one knows what the symptoms are.
If you have painful white patches in the mouth, inner cheeks, throat, palate, and tongue, then you probably have thrush. One should, however, have it diagnosed through clinical examination by a physician or dentist.
Thrush is caused by the fungus, Candida Albicans, which develops in warm, moist conditions and may be caused by a variety of factors, such as prolonged illness, pregnancy, medications, smoking, or even dentures.
Risk factors for thrush include a weakened immune system, medications such as antibiotics or long periods of stress. Fortunately, it’s possible to prevent thrush in most cases by risk factor modification. Some more good news is that the prognosis for mild cases of thrush is good. The outlook for severe cases, however, depends on the underlying cause and the status of the patient’s immune system.
The first step of how to treat thrush would then be to take supplements to up the immune system.
A second step on how to treat thrush would be to take something which kills off this fungus.
Colloidal silver has been used for many centuries to treat infections and is said to be highly effective against bad bacteria and other harmful micro-organisms. Furthermore, research shows that colloidal silver only attacks the ‘unfriendly’ (anaerobic) pathogens and will not harm the friendly bacteria. In fact, colloidal silver does not attack bacteria directly, but rather destroys certain enzymes the anaerobic bacteria, viruses, yeast, and moulds require for survival. So there is little chance of them developing resistance to colloidal silver. Moreover, colloidal silver acts as a catalyst and is not consumed in the process.
The final step on how to treat thrush would be to follow a temporary diet completely free of all sugars, including fruit and starches. All forms of the Candida fungi feed on sugars and carbohydrates.
Following the above guidelines should eliminate the symptoms of thrush and leave one with a strong enough immune system to combat any possible future attacks of the disease.
