Candida and What to Do About it

25 04 2008

    Some think or suspect the Candida fungus is responsible for what ails them.  Since Candida resides in us all, it is not impossible to believe this particular fungus could get out of hand.  Candida is a yeast fungus that normally is present on the skin and in the mucous membranes of the mouth, intestinal tract, and vagina, and that may become pathogenic, especially C. albicans, the causative agent of thrush (fungal infecti0n of the mouth or throat).  Infection caused by the fungus Candida albicans, is manifested by white, slightly raised patches on the mucous membrane of the tongue, mouth, and throat. The mucous membrane beneath the patches is usually raw and bleeding.  Candida overtakes your guts probiotics (read “Intestinal Bacteria & Nutrient Absorption?” at our home site), outnumbering the helpful bacteria as its food source.  Candida albicans then runs rampant within the stomach and small intestines.  When the fungus becomes present in the large intestines… This is a sign your system is fighting a battle it can’t win unless something changes. This is because your guts bacterial environment has become septic with the fungus.  With long-term infection the fungus actually sets up a root system penetrating the intestinal and mucosal lining of our guts.  Other harmful materials then are easily absorbed by this deep rooted system resulting in an immunological reaction, where the yeast syndrome impacts the entire body’s system.

 Health problems associated with this fungus – It is recognized, this deep rooted fungi system can introduce insidious pathogens in the body creating a condition where serious disease can thrive, e.g., “1) Acne or psoriasis 2) Allergies 3) Diabetes 4) Digestive disorders… Weight gain, gas, bloating, colitis (read “IBS Irritable Bowel Syndrome” at our home site) 5) Ear infections 6) Emotional upsets and depression 6) Energy imbalances or insomnia 7) Hormonal problems 8) Hyperactivity, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) 9) Hypoglycemia 10) Hypothyroidism 11) Lung problems 12) Obesity 13) Pollen allergies 14) Reproductive Organ Disorders 15) Sensitivities to foods, chemicals, and/or molds 16) Susceptibility to viruses, bacteria, and other infections 17) Thyroid.   Some practitioners believe that Candida overgrowth can lead to onset of chronic illnesses: Chronic fatigue symptom (CFS), fibromyalgia, Epstein-Barr virus, lupus, multiple sclerosis (MS), Alzheimer’s, Crohn’s disease, arthritis, cancer, and autism (reference, puristat com).  Once you are identified with Candida, it can take up to 7 months to remove it through proper diet.

Avoid the following foods that promote Candia thriving in the body:  All sugars, baked goods, breads, refined flour, alcohol, vinegars, pickled vegetable, dried fruits, cheeses, mushrooms.  Candida depends on sugar to survive.  Cut off the food source and you’ll starve-kill the fungus.  Also check food labels for fructose, glucose, lactose, maltose, mannitol, sorbitol and sucrose.  Avoid honey, maple syrup and molasses.  Remove processed and packaged foods from your diet (high in sugars).

Foods to consume to rid yourself of Candida:  Eat plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains, nuts and seeds, eggs, yogurt, meats, poultry, fish, oils (flaxseed, olive, sesame, and sunflower), butter, lemon, etc.  See our health store for purity products, fish oils, etc.
