What is Candida? It is a yeast like fungal organism found in small amounts in the normal human intestinal tract. Normally kept in check by the body’s own helpful bacteria, Candida can increase in numbers when this balance is disturbed to cause candidiasis of the intestinal tract, or yeast infections of other parts of the body. The beneficial bacteria is easily killed off today by our modern lifestyle changes. Our current lifestyle of carbs, sugar, antibiotics and having silver amalgam dental fillings tends to allow fungi to morph into more aggressive, pathological forms. Fungal yeast, when set free from the flora that normally keeps it in check, actually changes form to create a more aggressive, harmful type of fungal cell and develops long, burrowing legs. Without bacterial balance this Candida yeast proliferates in our intestines. This new yeast cell is able to move throughout the body, actually burrowing through the intestinal wall. It clogs systems, gets into organs, causes Candida yeast infections from vaginal to anal to penile…anywhere on the skin buy more often in moist areas. It can even cause fungal sinus infections that cannot be helped by antibiotics.
How can Candida be so active you ask. The fungal yeast cells in your body ingest the sugars and carbs you eat and then these same yeast cells expel a large variety of poisons called mycotoxins (myco means fungal; toxins mean poisons.) These Candida toxins create problems of their own throughout our bodies, slowly poisoning us in varied and unique ways according to our individual vulnerabilities and lifestyle choices.
Candida is a tenacious tenant in your body, one not easily evicted. Try taking CHF #44B which may help to assist in the eviction process.
The University of Maryland Medical Center states that even if you have your Candida under control, you may still have low energy, mind fog or depression. This has been found to be caused by a depleted adrenals or thyroid.
