Candida

Image result for images for candidaThe condition of Candidiasis (chronic Candida albicans infection) is a fungal infection or overgrowth of fungus in the intestines. Candida is normally found in the gut, yet if its growth is out of control it can lead to a wide variety of symptoms including the intensification of auto-immune symptoms.

An overgrowth of Candida results primarily from the abuse or prolonged use of antibiotics including tetracycline for acne, birth control pills, and a high-sugar, low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet. People who were not breastfed also have an increased risk of Candida overgrowth.

 

Candida symptoms:

∼ Fatigue
∼ Sadness and depression
∼ Weight gain
∼ Fluid retention
∼ Indigestion
∼ Skin problems including eczema and psoriasis
∼ Foggy brain with difficulty concentrating
∼ Headaches
∼ Frequent urination
∼ Vaginal discharge with itchiness
∼ Cravings for sweets and starches
