Candida Overgrowth ( Candidiasis )
Candida is a fungus. It is all around us,
normally found on skin, in the mouth, gut, and other mucus
membranes. It causes infection when antibiotics or other
factors reduce ournatural resistance to its overgrowth. Most
Candida infections are superficial, limited to mucus
Disseminated infection by Candida of internal organs can
occur in severely immunocompromised patients, such as those
with cancer, serious burns, or AIDS. This is a much more serious condition
than superficial Candida infection.
Symptoms of Candida Overgrowth
- Dry, itchy, flaky skin
- Oral thrush
- White Coating on tongue
- Recurring cystitis/vaginal infections
- Reduced concentration ( "Brain Fog" )
- Food and environmental allergies
- Recurring irritability or mood swings
- Joint soreness
- Acne or other skin problems
- Migraine headaches
- Premenstrual tension, and menstrual problems
- Fungal Sinusitis

colonies of Candida sometimes grow too large, as
happens in the case of yeast infections. The
oral form of Candida infection, known as
thrush, is a common problem for infants and Adults
We have found that a surprisingly large proportion of people
around the world suffer from a number of these symptoms
simultaneously or periodically over a period of time and who may
never find out what the cause is. Those that do eventually find out
(often by chance or through coming across a book or website like
this), have often lived for years, even decades felling really awful
a large amount of the time.
Apart from feeling physically ill and lifeless they often also
suffer from the psychological pressure of constantly wondering what
on earth is wrong with them in light of the fact that the Doctors
keep telling them that they "test out okay" and eventually recommend
them to a psychotherapist! Does this sound familiar?

potential to cause any number of the above symptoms. Obviously, not
everyone with fatigue, mood swings, central nervous system problems,
or headaches etc suffers from Candida Albicans infection, but it is
of significant prevalence that it is well worth examining in people
who have reoccurring intractable problems of this
What causes Candida
The organism ( Candida ) may become pathogenic ( capable of
causing disease ) when the systems' ability to contain this organism
proves ineffective and proliferation of the yeast results in
This can happen internally and externally on the skin and in or
around the oral and vaginal cavities. Most of the medical
information pertaining to Candidiasis would appear to relate to
external forms of Candida infection.
We believe, as do many other Health Practitioners, that internal Candida infection is very
common, often undiagnosed, and quite
possibly the cause of many external infectious Candida conditions,
along with a wide range of other chronic, acute, and degenerative
The current increase in the incidence of Candidiasis
appears to parallel the widespread use of broad-spectrum
antibiotics, both as therapeutic agents and within the food
There are many factors which
Contribute singly or jointly
to the overgrowth of
- Use of antibiotics
- Ingestion of antibiotics from meat and animal
- Use of oral contraceptives
- Excess consumption of sugar and sugar containing
- Use of corticosteroids
- Diabetes mellitus
- Mercury from mercury amalgam dental fillings
- Chlorine from drinking and bathing/swimming
In the intestines of our body, Lactobacillus ( a friendly
bacteria ) feeds on Candida keeping its numbers low.
Antibiotics, by eliminating
competitive and protective bacteria (probiotics), help facilitate
Candida proliferation, since the yeast is not itself attacked by
antibiotics. Furthermore, antibiotics have been postulated to
inhibit phagocytosis, irritate the gut mucosa, and cause B-vitamin
deficiencies by eradicating the bacteria involved in their
production. The bottom-line is that antibiotics are an aggressive
drug that should be used sparingly when no other sound alternative
"Antibiotics help facilitate

Steroids , including birth control pills , have a suppressive
effect upon the immune system. This appears to cause delay in the
activation of phagocytes (a vital component of the immune system).
Evidence indicates that not only are patients taking corticosteroids
more susceptible to virulent strains of Candida (which are normally
non-pathogenic), but also that these less virulent
strains may produce disease when normally they would not have done.
Candida is now in an "overgrowth" status. It
slows down neurotransmitters to the brain, causing the person
affected to have reduced concentration, to be forgetful and
confused, irritable, and to sleep poorly.
Other problems experienced include fatigue, low stamina, low
libido, weight gain or loss, aching legs or other muscles (Candida
overgrowth can affect calcium/phosphorus/magnesium balance),
aggravation of PMS, menopausal or gynecology syndrome, and a general
malaise of the immune system. Craving sugar (a
major Candida food source) is also a common symptom.
Gluten / Lactose factor
An interesting theory is that these recurring Candida
infestations could not happen without gluten or lactose
intolerance. Sure, antibiotics kill off the "friendly"
bacteria but that should be a very temporary event, followed by
re-colonization of the gut, by bacterial cultures.
So what stops the
It is likely that a condition in the small intestine
where billions of tiny "finger-like" projections called villi
(through which absorption of food takes place) are clubbed and
flattened due to junk food, all-cooked food, alcohol, drugs, and
especially gluten and dairy products - consistent use of these
health-destroying foods all cause decay of food in the intestine due
to malabsorption. In that case, the Candida is provided with food so
it can continue to proliferate.
If gluten and casein [wheat and dairy] are eliminated from the
diet, frequently the malabsorption syndrome will be eliminated.
Eliminating, or at least greatly reducing, the intake of junk food,
alcohol, all-cooked food, and drugs will also allow the gut wall to regenerate
and limit the growth of Candida.
The solution to Candida
Most Candida health protocols will generally assert that it will
take months of serious dieting, use of fungicides such as nystatin,
and total elimination of any sugar, honey, fruit juices and even
fruit, grains and most carbohydrates.
