The Silent Carriers of Candida
The Silent Carriers of Candida
Candida albicans is yeast normally present in the human body. It is useful for our body because it helps in the destruction of harmful bacteria to provide protection to our body. Millions of Candida are found in the human body, which is regulated by our immune system in association with friendly bacteria such as lactobacillus. An overgrowth of Candida often known as Candidiasis can cause an array of symptoms.
When friendly bacteria becomes weak due to higher intake of refined foods and antibiotics then the Candida enhance and produces a fungal infection that may cause a threat to our body. Candidiasis may remain undetected for many years, leading to severe problems in life.
Why it remains unnoticed or undetected?
Generally, women are treated for vaginal yeast infections and doctors fail to recognize that the same yeast can produce digestive tract problems. The symptoms of Candidiasis become worse over a period of time and when anyone takes antibiotics for the treatment of sinusitis it will aggravate the condition of Candidiasis.
Many times Candidiasis is misdiagnosed as cancer. Sometimes laboratory testing for Candida overgrowth may show the cancerous activity of the cells but it disappears after detoxifying and cleansing. Therefore, doctors fail to recognize the true symptoms of Candidiasis.
As Candidiasis is not diagnosed properly, the problem remains in the body and may spread. More and more antibiotics are prescribed that weakens the immune system. A person taking repeated doses of antibiotics become susceptible to infections, and other diseases.
Candidiasis is a result of the sedentary lifestyle, regular intake of antibiotics, birth control pills, refined sugars, etc.
Effect of candidiasis on your weight
Candidiasis plays an important role in making a person obese. It does not allow a person to lose weight due to faulty digestive functioning. Disturbances in the digestive system lead to storage of more fat. Toxins present inside the digestive system create an acidic environment in the body. Fat does not burn in the presence of a more acidic environment and gets stored in other parts of the body. Candidiasis may spread to the whole body and increase your cravings for sugar and refined food which forms a suitable environment for the growth of fungal infection.
Use of antibiotics
It is the main cause of Candidiasis. Intake of too many antibiotics causes the destruction of the healthy bacteria present in the digestive tract. This causes an overgrowth of the Candida.
Conventional doctors want to quickly prescribe the remedies to treat diseases and they do not want to get into the root of the problem. Most of the time, the prescribed drugs cause more side effects than treating the problem.
Nutrition or diet also plays an important role in the overgrowth of Candida. A diet rich in refined sugars, carbohydrates, fast foods gives a suitable environment for the growth of Candida.
When we eat certain foods such as meat and get exposed to antibiotics because antibiotics and steroids are administered to animals in large amount to prevent any infection and when we eat animal meats we also get exposed to these antibiotics. Therefore, it is recommended to eat organic foods and more plant based foods rather than refined foods.
Environmental factors such as pesticides, additives, and preservatives that enter our body through the food we eat are not digested by our body. These substances are toxic for our body which can create an acidic environment for the growth of Candida.
