can alchornea treat candidiasis?
18 Oct 2019
and which part is used in treating it?
23 Oct 2019
Dear Priscilla
Alchornea is not an effective herb for Candidiasis. You can try the following herbs:
* Eat a bowl of fresh Yogurt daily. Make it a routine and have it daily.
* Take Echinacea capsules- 1 capsule daily for 15 days.
* Take 1 clove of garlic every morning with water. Take it for 1 month.
Candidiasis is a bacterial infection. The body has to fight off the bacteria and only a strong Immune system can fight it. These herbs will help in building a strong Immune system and will help to fight the bacteria.

Also, check the link on Candidiasis on this website. It has detailed information that might be useful to you.

Thanks for this informative website. Please a point of correction here on CANDIDIASIS. This condition is caused by FUNGI and not Bacteria.
A. cordiforlia also has antifungal property and can be effective against candidiasis if used properly.

Yea Kwamena thanks, it is true and well says. Fungal and
not bacterial. Anyway we are all here to learn and to share. Information come from different source, add
