Candida

- Wednesday, February 25, 2009
Many people suffer from Candida infections, but its wide ranging symptoms mean it’s often not diagnosed for some time. This page tells you what Candida is, its common symptoms, and how we can help you overcome the condition with a simple and natural solution. What is Candida? Candida is the yeast (or fungus) responsible for a thrush infection. There are several species of Candida. The most common type, Candida Albicans, lives in all the body’s mucus membranes. If your Candida levels become too high it can cause an infection, known as Candidiasis, which can lead to health problems anywhere in the body. 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 and digestive disorders • brain fog • depression • ear infections • eczema • fatigue • food allergies • headaches • joint pain • muscle weakness • nail infections • sinusitis • vaginitis 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 • illness • oral contraceptive pill • poor diet • stress • smoking 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.
