and its complications

Candida is a yeast fungus that is inhabited naturally within our digestive system and its function is to assist in In the process of digestion and absorption. Normally, the friendly bacteria in the intestine monitor its growth. When there is an imbalance in our gut bacteria, Candida begins to reproduce and root widely within the walls of our intestine. This causes the intestine to become leaky and allows toxins to introduce Infections and undigested food molecules into the bloodstream and to the lymph.

This is how all the other health problems begin to appear. The invasion of unwelcomed substances into the bloodstream triggers an inflammatory response of the immune system, which is trying to fight the "foreign invaders." As the intestine continues to be "leaky", the Immune system response becomes less and less accurate and this may eventually lead to an autoimmune disease.

Causes for Candida

What causes our bacteria to weaken so much and allows Candida to prosper?

  • A prolonged intake of antibiotics destroys the good bacteria population in the gut.

  • A diet rich in sugars and simple carbohydrates feeds Candida.

  • Birth control pills.

  • High consumption of alcohol damages the intestinal walls.

  • Stress.

  • Eating too much-fermented food.

Candida fungus secretes over a hundred different toxins. One of the main problems of Candida overgrowth is that it has a unique ability to change its shape in order to protect itself from environmental threats like temperature or acidity. It is capable of transforming from being a round shape to an elongated shape, depending on its environmental conditions. In its elongated state, it is able to penetrate the intestinal wall, enter the bloodstream and get into other tissues. This means that it can quickly develop from a limited intestinal problem to an overall whole-body problem. When this happens, it can actually settle on our skin, mouth, ears, genitals, thyroid gland, and other organs of the body.
