CANDIDA YEAST OVERGROWTH
We all have yeast in our intestines, but for some at risk, it overgrows &
makes them feel sick. When these people eat bread, pasta, or other high
carbohydrate foods, they can feel sluggish & depressed, but there is alot
that you can do to fight it.
Fungal overgrowth in the intestines can be associated with: depression,
inability to concentrate, anxiety, and fatigue...
Candida albicans is a parasitic fungus that is normally found in the human
gastrointestinal and genital tracts. A Candida infection occurs when the
yeast is allowed to overgrow, or spread to other areas of the body. People
with Candida overgrowth typically feel fatigued and have trouble
concentrating; Both of these symptoms are caused by the toxins produced by
the yeast, which are easily absorbed through the intestinal lining. You can
ask your practitioner to do a test for this toxin to make a diagnosis.
Apart from the above test, a definitive diagnosis of candidiasis is
difficult because the symptoms can be non-specific and can vary depending on
the part of the body that is involved. For example, Candida can cause:
headaches, fatigue, rashes, athlete's foot, itching, tingling or burning
sensations, memory loss, joint and muscle pain, constipation or diarrhea,
PMS prostatitis, and even diabetes or hypothyroidism. The symptoms may be
worse in damp or mouldy places. They may also worsen after consuming
high-sugar or yeast-based foods. Visually, a topical (skin or mucous
membrane) candida infection appears as white patches that may grow together.
The skin surrounding the spots is very irritated and red. There may be a
white, curd-like discharge with a yeasty smell. Many of the symptoms of
gastrointestinal candidiasis mimic those of Leaky Gut Syndrome, and these
two conditions can often co-exist.
Symptoms of Candidiasis
Conventional treatment of candida involves antifungal agents applied
topically or taken orally. These medications take care of the current
infection but do not address the root cause of why the infection occurred in
the first place. Candida often returns and eventually the strains become
Treating with Food
Dietary therapy depends upon the severity of the condition. It is aimed at
starving out the yeast by removing its food source, sugar.
The most severe dietary restrictions involve a total elimination of all
sugar, yeast and fungal products from the diet. This includes: fruit, aged
cheese, alcohol, baked goods (including bread), chocolate, fermented foods,
gluten containing grains, ham, honey and all sweeteners, nut butters,
potatoes, mushrooms, soy sauce, sprouts and vinegar.
Less severe cases restrict all of the above-mentioned products for a short
period of time, and then allow some products back into the diet. Vegetables,
fish and gluten free grains are the bulk of the diet. Fresh, live yogurt or
other products containing live bacterial cultures can be added at a later
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP
- EAT MORE VEGETABLES & PROTEIN, BUT LESS CARBS
- DO COLON CLEANSES
- TAKE ACIDOPHILUS DAILY
- TAKE ANTIFUNGAL SUPPLEMENTS LIKE CAPRYLIC ACID, GARLIC, OREGANO, AND
- DON'T DRINK COFFEE
- CUT BACK ON BEVERAGES WITH HIGH SUGAR CONTENT
- GET AN ELISA ACT TEST FROM YOUR PRACTITIONER TO MAKE AN EXACT DIAGNOSIS
- TREAT ANY UNDERLYING HEALTH CONCERNS
DID YOU KNOW?
- CANDIDA IS OFTEN MISDIAGNOSED AS SIMPLE DEPRESSION
- YEAST CELLS MULTIPLY AT AN ALARMING RATE
- CANDIDA GIVES YOUR CRAVINGS
Unfortunately, because this infection can cause such a litany of other
concerns, it is sometimes over-diagnosed, and treatment touted as a
cure-all. Be sure to discuss the potential of candidiasis with your
healthcare provider to ensure that this is the root cause of your concerns.
Of course, you can always go ahead with trying to treat it first to see if
the treatment makes a difference for your symptoms if you prefer the
do-it-yourself path. There are many risk factors for developing Candida
overgrowth in the intestines. Some of the risks are common health concerns
that create an environment in the body that allows yeast to grow out of
control, while others are environmental factors. Here is a list of some (but
not all) factors that can leave you predisposed to developing candidiasis:
Risk Factors for Developing Candida
-Low Thyroid The lower body temperature caused by hypothyroid creates a
suitable environment for the yeast to proliferate.
-Diabetes or Hypoglycemia Blood sugar fluctuations and cravings for sweet
foods make sugar more available and can make it easier for the yeast to
-Antibiotic Use The use of antibiotics can kill off the natural, "good"
bacteria that help to keep yeast in check.
-Stress Extended stress can exhaust your adrenal glands, thus lowering your
body temperature. Stress also reduces your immune system, thus preventing
your body's natural response to infection.
-Menopause or PMS These conditions cause hormonal fluctuations that can kill
off the natural bacteria in the body and boost the growth of yeast.
-Intestinal Toxicity Yeast can proliferate in a toxic colon with the
accumulated waste matter.
-Low Immunity The immune system will normally keep the yeast in check, but
if it gets compromised, the yeast can be allowed to grow out of control.
-Leaky Gut Small perforations in the intestinal lining can harbour yeast
cells and provide them with a more direct source of nutrients.
Die Off Reactions
When you initially go to kill off the yeast in your body, beware that you
will likely feel pretty terrible for a few days. Each cell of Candida
naturally produces toxins, and when a large number of the yeast cells
suddenly die and burst, a massive amount of toxin can be released into the
intestines where they are easily absorbed. This can result in flu-like
symptoms, similar to those experienced during a detox, or a cleanse. The
symptoms will go away once the yeast is under control. They can be somewhat
countered by drinking lots of filtered water and taking in lots of fibre.
The following list of supplements can be used for preventing and treating
candida infections. Treatment is aimed at killing and removing the yeast as
well as rebuilding resistance to yeast. Adult doses are given. Ensure all
products are yeast free. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding seek advice
from a health professional before beginning treatment.
