Candida

Candida

I had female problems. I also had a lot of skin care problems, and going to my gynecologist as well as my dermatologist, they just kept giving me antibiotics which was making the problem worse.  Finally it clicked that something else was going on. I cut out yeast from my diet and sure enough, the problems went away. I feel fantastic.  I really got my life back!

Did you know that 3.1 million Americans suffer from constipation? Are you one of the 20% of the U.S. population who have been diagnosed with acid reflux or one of the 2.1 million people diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)? Have you ever taken an antibiotic? Do you tend to have cravings for carbohydrates, sugars, or anything starchy? Do you feel fatigued or sluggish?

These are some common problems caused by candidiasis, also known as yeast or candida overgrowth, and until you solve the underlying cause of your symptoms by eliminating the yeast, the symptoms won’t go away. Also keep in mind that candida symptoms are not limited to the gastrointestinal tract.

Candida Symptoms

  • bloating
  • belching
  • excessive gas
  • constipation
  • heartburn
  • cramps
  • pain
  • indigestion
  • diarrhea

Candida overgrowth, or yeast overgrowth, can also cause:

  • headaches
  • fatigue
  • skin rashes
  • immune suppression
  • chemical sensitivity
  • muscle aches
  • hives
  • fungal infections under fingernails and toenails
  • vaginal yeast infections
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • joint pain
  • inability to concentrate
  • athlete’s foot
  • thrush, a white coating on the tongue

Even worse, yeast produces toxins that depress your immune system, making you more reactive to allergies and more susceptible to infections. Wouldn’t you like to know what is causing your symptoms so that you can get rid of them permanently?

What Causes Candida Overgrowth
If this sounds familiar, you may have candidiasis, better known as yeast or candida overgrowth. If you have ever taken an antibiotic, eaten antibiotic-injected meat or dairy products, taken birth control pills, or steroids then you are susceptible to candida overgrowth and its varied symptoms.

Antibiotics destroy good bacteria along with the bad, leaving us defenseless and open to more infection in the future. Unfortunately, antibiotics do not kill yeast, so the playing field is never leveled, but rather the yeast is allowed to proliferate in the digestive tract and vagina. Toxins released by yeast enter the bloodstream and impair immunity, making you more reactive to allergies and more susceptible to infections. Weakened immunity contributes to recurrent infections, leading to frequent antibiotic use, thus perpetuating the cycle. This vicious cycle is hard to break. So what can you do to put an end to this process?
