Do I have a Candida Infection?
How can I tell if I have a Candida infection? Did you know that you don’t have to have the symptoms of thrush to be suffering from a Candida
infection? Maybe you just feel fatigued, hassled by allergies and infections, or perhaps brain fog or depression is getting you down.
Candida infections can have all sorts of symptoms including:
- bloating, gas
- brain fog

- food allergies
- digestive disorders
- joint pain
- muscle weakness

How would I get a Candida infection?
Generally, a healthy immune system keeps Candida levels under control. But modern lifestyles and diets can give anyone’s immune system
a bit of a hammering. When the delicate balance of bowel flora is disturbed, it can create an environment where Candida thrives. Factors
that can weaken the immune system and encourage a Candida infection include:
- alcohol abuse
- antibiotics and drugs
- oral contraceptive pill
- poor diet
When a Candida overgrowth takes hold, it excretes harmful toxins that circulate throughout the body, further weakening the immune system
and creating havoc. It can also lead to a condition called ‘Leaky Gut Syndrome’, which causes food allergies and many health problems.
A Candida infection can become persistent, and is certainly something you’d hope to avoid. If you have an infection it’s important to get
effective treatment so you can return to feeling healthy once more.
