Right now at this
very second, there are trillions of microscopic
inhabitants coexisting in your gut.
We're talking national debt sized numbers!
And what you need to
realize is that some of these little buggers are good and some
Now, in a healthy
normal functioning gut, the good ones will typically keep the
bad ones in line, starve them or surround and engulf them as
needed so that they don't cause you harm.
But what upsets this
pretty picture is when the bad guys become too large in
number...then things get out of control.
And one particular
bad guy that can cause a lot of mayhem is...
Although Candida is
commonly thought of as a yeast infection, it's actually a
The interesting thing
is, Candida is found in nearly everyone and is a normal part of
your gut microbes.
It actually serves a
valid function. When present in healthy numbers, Candida feeds
upon unfriendly microbes produced in the gut, thereby helping to
keep you healthy.
But my oh my, watch
out if it grows out of control.
Because like a horror
movie it transforms from Dr. Jekyll into Mr. Hyde--from a health
enhancing fungus to a deadly monster.
sneaky and can wear many different faces...so you may be
suffering the wrath of Candida overgrowth and not even realize
So here's what you
need to know about the many faces of Candida and to see if it
may be affecting you:
From the gut to
The initial affected
location of Candida's wrath is your gut.
When it colonizes and
grows in number, Candida produces powerful toxins like gliotoxin
(which can suppress your immune system and cause cell death),
aldehydes and alcohol, all of which irritate and damage your
At the same time,
Candida acts like a "bully" on the gut wall, pushing and shoving
its way deep into the intestinal lining and making it "leaky."
When your gut wall is
leaky, the toxins produced by Candida can seep into your
bloodstream and affect your immune system, hormone balances and
even your thought processes!
And that's not all.
Because when you have a leaky gut wall, poorly digested food
molecules can burrow their way through and into your
bloodstream. Your immune system sees these partially digested
food particles as dangerous invaders and can eventually begin to
start launching attacks.
That's how food
sensitivities are created.
toxins can easily get into your bloodstream, anywhere from head
to toe is fair game for its wrath.
are some common signs and symptoms associated with Candida
overgrowth--notice the wide variety:
- Chronic fatigue
- Clouded thinking or memory
- Cravings for foods rich in carbohydrates or yeast
- Environmental sensitivities
- Feeling worse on damp or muggy days or in moldy places
- Food sensitivities
- Low blood sugar
- Mood swings
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Recurring vaginal or bladder infections
- Ringing in the ears
- Sensitivity to perfume or other odors
The more of those
symptoms you suffer from on a regular basis, the greater the
chances that Candida may be affecting YOU.
Why oh why
doesn't just come out of nowhere.
created by very specific factors like these:
1- Antibiotic use
your friendly gut flora so it is less capable of keeping Candida
of steroid medications or birth control pills
These harm your
beneficial bacteria and change the pH of your intestinal tract
to favor the overgrowth of Candida.
3- Eating too many refined carbohydrates
Refined carbs are
nourishment for the UNfriendly inhabitants in your gut, which
helps them grow in number and overcome the good guys.
Turn the beat
If you suspect that
Candida may be an issue for you, or even if it isn't and you
want to make sure it STAYS that way, the good news is that it's
not hard to do.
Here's an effective
four-step approach that can keep Candida overgrowth FAR away
Step 1: Change
your medications if possible
If you are on
long-term antibiotics, steroid medications or birth control
pills, it's time to explore other (natural) options or talk to
your doctor about alternatives.
Step 2: Kill
substances have been shown to be helpful in killing off Candida
- Fresh, raw
- Olive oil
- Oil of oregano
- Thyme oil
- Grapefruit seed extract
- Mathake (a South American herb)
Getting garlic and
olive oil in your diet is easy (and tasty!) and the other
substances can be obtained from a health food store.
Note that as Candida
die, protein fragments and endotoxins are released which may
trigger an immune response. This "die-off reaction" can
initially come out as a temporary worsening of your symptoms
(especially digestive issues) and is called a Herxheimer
reaction. If this happens, rest assured that it will pass soon.
Step 3: Beef up
your candida killing army of intestinal flora
The most effective
way to ensure that your army of beneficial bacteria is strong
and able to keep Candida in check is through probiotic
