Identifying candida symptoms
Fungal infection and Candida
Major cause of disease in modern society.
Candida is nearly an epidemic in our society and is responsible for many of the chronic illness
categories we see so frequently. Candida symptoms are vast and all encompassing and can
even incapacitate the individual.
Most people are unaware that it even exists, because most main stream doctors are
uneducated about its impact on our health. People suffering from this condition often go from
doctor to doctor for years and are usually told they are a hypochondriac or that it is stress or a
psychiatric problem, before ever discovering the real culprit. 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
Not only that, but not all fungal infections are actually yeast
infections…there are many pathological fungi in our environment which are opportunistic, and
will invade and live in a host who has an internal environment that suits their needs. Most of
these pathological fungi emit waste products which are extremely toxic to our physiology ad
ccan lead to the onlet of seemingly unrelated diseases such as gut problems, ulcers,
diverticulitis, Asthma, skin diseases, allergies, even autoimmune disorders and cancer.
Fungi normally resides in the intestinal tract, mouth, throat and genitals, however it can
burrow holes in the intestinal tract,(leaky gut syndrome) enter the blood stream and then
make it's 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 wreaks 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:
cravings for sweets inability to think clearly or concentrate
pre-menstrual syndrome dizziness
irritability learning difficulties
sensitivity to fragrances and/or other chemicals cognitive impairment
One of the most well-known forms of yeast is the vaginal yeast infection.
However, it may
play a role in just about any mental health
condition or chronic illness
you can think of.
Yeast overgrowth is considered to be a leading contributor in alcoholism
asthma, irritable bowel syndrome,
addisons disease, mcs - multiple chemic sensitivities
crohns, autism, cfs - chronic fatigue syndrome
, leaky gut syndrome, pms,
endometriosis,fms - fibromyalgia syndrome,
prostatitis, attention deficit disorder, multiple
sclerosis, asthma, food allergies,
muscle and joint pain, clinical depression, repeated urinary
tract infections, hormonal imbalances, migraines,
digestive disturbances, difficult
psoriasis, lupus, chronic pain,
tourette's, vulvodynia, rheumatoid arthritis and
Men also get fungal infections which can lead to erectile dysfunction, itching, impotency,
infertility, low sperm count and much more The brain is the organ that is most frequently affected by Candida Symptoms, but it
also has profound negative effects on these systems:
Candida symptoms can vary from one person to another and often move back and forth
between systems within the same individual. One day you may experience symptoms in the
musculoskeletal system and the next day it could be the digestive system ,etc.
There are a variety of causes of candida,
but the two leading contributors are a diet high in
sugar and refined foods and the overuse of antibiotics. However fungal infections are only the
tip of the iceberg. They are a symptom of a deeper cause. Anything which stresses our us
causes a change in our acid/alkaline balance. When we are stressed our blood Ph. becomes
too acidic, which changes our internal environment into one which is deadly to our good gut
bacteria which are 80% of our immune system, but friendly to the pathological fungi.
To completely resolve any fungal infection we need to find out what is stressing your system
and irradiate it. The most common stressor is toxicity of various kinds ( toxic metals,
chemicals, radiation, hydrocarbons etc) We all accumulate toxins as the byears go by and
our food and environment become more polluted. The very worst of these toxins cannot be
handled by our Liver, so it stores them in our body relatively safely. However as they
accumulate eventually the sea saw will tip and we will become ill.
It is essential to identify what toxic elements are present in our body and eliminate them
safely. This can be done using Clinical Kinesiology Root Cause Diagnosis. Once identified
a specific safe detoxification protocol can be prescribed for you, to eliminate your toxins safely
and without side effects.
The second most important factor in Candida symptoms is to follow a Candida diet.
high in sugar is a haven for yeast. It's crucial to eliminate sugars
and refined foods to reduce
overgrowth. Initially even fruits and high carbohydrate foods may need to be eliminated and
then reintroduced to the diet later as you get better. Meat, eggs and low carbohydrate
vegetables are what is best to stick with and a small amount of nuts, seeds and low sugar
fruit. This will be discussed in detail and you will receive a diet sheet during your
Most people with fungal overgrowth are also suffering from nutritional deficiencies and
correcting your deficiencies can help you in your battle over Candida symptoms.
Some of the most effective and popular natural health approaches used in the treatment of
include caprylic acid, oregano oil, garlic, taheebo tea, grapefruit seed
extract and colloidal silver. Prescription medication like Nystatin, Diflucan or Nizoral may be
obtained by a physician, but carry a few risks. However although usefulthese natural
remedies on their own do not address the underlying toxic cause of fungal infection, so will
not cure it.
It is also essential to keep your home environment healthy and not-toxic. Chemicals weaken
the immune system and if the immune system is weak this also allows the yeast to
proliferate. So keeping your home chemical free by using non-toxic and natural cleaning
supplies, personal care products etc. will help your body stay stronger.
. Do You Have Candida?
Candida is really insidious, tricky yeast and once you have overgrowth it can be extremely
difficult to get under control. It takes a lot of patience, education and persistence. If you need
to talk to someone who understands, you may, like hundreds of my clients, find my diagnostic
and treatment approach to be helpful. I can give you an accurate diagnosis not only of
whether you have Candida, but why…after all if we don’t eradicate the underlying cause of
Candida it will keep recurring. I will be able to prescribe exactly the precise diet and
supplements you require,lifestyle changes or whatever you may want to talk about.

ABSTRACT: In response to a request by Barr Laboratories to market their “emergency contraceptive” Plan B across the counter, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) held a public hearing. Objections to the proposal included: (1) A considerable increase in tubal pregnancies following ingestion of Plan B was found in U.K., prompting a warning to physicians.
