Fighting Candida is one of our common battles in biomedical and naturopathy treatment for Autism and related disorders. Apart from prescription antifungal medications and topical creams, there are many natural treatments to choose from. More and more parents are preferring natural remedies; for some it’s because it is more effective than prescription medications. For many families, we choose natural treatments because of worries over our children’s kidney and liver function. Frequent usage of most prescription antifungals do have side effects just like any other prescription medication.

Many families find natural treatments more effective with less side effects compared to pharmaceutical treatments. Please see my previous posts on yeast, antifungals and candida below;
