Candida is an over-infestation of yeast in the body. It can invade every tissue in the body including the brain, and it grows and lives on what you eat. It makes you crave what it needs to grow, and rampages until you eat it. I call it the awakened dragon that roars until you give it attention by feeding it something that it loves but is making you sicker.
Many medications, such as steroid drugs, birth control pills, and antibiotics can increase the likelihood of a candida yeast imbalance. In some cases the next life crisis, trauma, major loss, or emotional setback may awaken the dragon as well. It may occur alone or in combination with any auto-immune disorder, including Fibromyalgia. Candida can be transmitted through sexual contact, pregnancy, or swimming pools and hot tubs. There are medical tests for yeast, including stool sample testing, urine, and blood test and by the health screening test we offer.
Some symptoms include frequent yeast, bladder or skin infections, chronic fungus such as athlete’s foot, allergic reactions or increased sensitivities to foods or chemicals, bowel disorders, muscle pain and fatigue. Headaches are very common along with fatigue/ lack of energy, cravings or addictions, mood swings, anxiety, depression, irritability. Overweight/ underweight,
insomnia, restless sleep, and list goes on.
Conventional treatment usually includes anti-fungal drugs and antibiotics, but these in fact can increase the severity of the problem in the long term. Often, when finishing a course of antibiotics or a steroid drug, a person experiences a yeast infection. Drugs that specifically address fungus or candida destroy some of the yeast, but those not destroyed begin to colonize and become more and more drug-resistant. In a stronger state, yeasts produce toxins that attack the body’s defense system and destroy the friendly bacteria in the body so that there is no defense against the new, stronger fungus. “Solving” candida with drugs stuffs the immediate discomfort, but causes the yeast to come back with increased strength and over time, the yeast becomes a problem that affects every facet of life and health.
Through an effective balance of dietary changes, nutritional support, and the increase of friendly bacteria, yeasts can be brought under control within 30-60 days. In this short period of time, a new level of vitality and health will have been reached that can be maintained for a lifetime. One of my first opening sentences when I am about to start a health screening test for a client is 80% of Americans have candida and 95% of degenerative diseases comes from a toxic colon.
