Candida is nearly an epidemic in our society and is responsible for many of the chronic illnesses we see so frequently. Candida symptoms are vast and all encompassing and can even incapacitate the individual.
Candida Albicans is a yeast that occurs naturally in the human body. Normally it lives in harmony with a variety of other microorganisms and actually performs a couple important functions. The problem occurs when something upsets the balance of bacteria in the body and this allows the yeast organism to proliferate and take over all the healthy microorganisms.
It normally resides in the intestinal tract, mouth, throat and genitals, however it can burrow holes in the intestinal tract, enter the blood stream and then make its way into any organ of the body. To make matters worse it emits over 70 different toxins into the body. Some people may even become allergic to the yeast itself.
Once this hardy organism proliferates in the body, it wrecks havoc in many ways and is the initiator of many common maladies, conditions, syndromes and illnesses in our population.
Some of the most frequent Candida symptoms are:
abdominal gas and bloating | headaches | migraines | excessive fatigue | cravings for alcohol | anxiety | vaginitis | rectal itching | cravings for sweets | inability to think clearly or concentrate| hyper activity | mood swings | diarrhea | constipation | hyperactivity | itching | acne | eczema | depression | sinus inflammation | pre-menstrual syndrome | dizziness | poor memory | persistent cough | earaches | low sex drive | muscle weakness | irritability | learning difficulties | sensitivity to fragrances and/or other chemicals | cognitive impairment | thrush | athlete's foot | sore throat | indigestion | acid reflux
