Candida and Aspirin

AspirinAs you may already know, aspirin has been used for hundreds of years to treat a wide range of ailments. But I only recently learnt that it is anti-fungal and also possibly anti-viral. I was reading one of my favorite health websites (EarthClinic.com) for some advice. I have been feeling ill and I cant seem to shake off a low grade virus. I read advice from Ted from Bangkok suggesting that taking low dosage of aspirin can work well to treat viruses that seem to hang around forever. As always I decided to double check this advice myself. I know there are people out there who cannot take aspirin as it can cause stomach and digestive problems. I haven’t had any problems myself so I wasn’t worried about taking it. But I still searched on Google to learn more. And what a surprise! This is how I uncovered some preliminary medical research which suggests it could be used to treat candida. There are also reports in the Lancet that it may prevent cancers from spreading. This is exciting news! None of this seems fully proven yet but it is very interesting. Especially as aspirin is so cheap and easy to get hold of.
But there are dangers in taking aspirin every day. It can cause internal bleeding which can be fatal. So if you are thinking of trying it please ask your Doctor first.

Is anyone taking low dose aspirin to treat their candida problem? It would be great to hear your feedback. I’ve decided to take low dosage of aspirin (75mg baby aspiring) for a week to see if I feel an improvement with my bug. I’ll let you know how I get on!
