Chronic Yeast Infections: Candida Albicans
overgrowth accelerate health problems.
Yeast Infections are caused by an overgrowth of Candida Albicans bacteria. Candida Albicans are a normal bacterial inhabitant of the human digestive tract... and generally the ratio of Candida in a healthy intestinal tract is 1 to 1MM; one cell to one million other bacteria.
But due to various factors, including but not limited to antibiotic over-use, lack of dietary fiber, and a compromised digestive-elimination system, an overgrowth of yeast bacteria and fungus can occur...
A potentially serious if not uncomfortable health problem.
There is a natural yeast infection remedy we will discuss shortly. But first...
What is yeast overgrowth?
Candida lives naturally in our intestinal tract, until the intestinal ecology becomes toxic, at which point candida multiples at an accelerated rate that causes chronic health consequences and a condition called candidiasis may develop in your body systems.
Yeast is a fungus, a microscopic-size parasite-type organism.
Candida lives and thrives in a dark, warm, moist environment specifically in the mouth, digestive tract and vagina. It is a single-cell microorganism that develops feeding tubes called hyphae, which grow directly into the intestinal walls causing them to become porous and allowing toxins and undigested proteins and carbohydrates to flow through the bowel wall, only to be absorbed into the body and the blood stream clinically known as intestinal permeability, and commonly known as leaky gut syndrome.
The fungal toxins created by Candida overgrowth can enter the bloodstream through the bowel wall the most common toxin is acetaldehyde a major waste-product of the yeast fungal organism, a poison converted by the liver into alcohol.
What causes candida yeast overgrowth?
- Birth control pills
- Cortisone drugs
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Overly acid pH
- Over-consumption of sugar and refined carbohydrates
- Transmission vaginally from an infected partner
- Higher progesterone levels causing increased PMS and symptoms
- Repeated antibiotic use that destroy all the intestinal bacteria,
good and bad
- NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen)
What are the consequences of yeast overgrowth?
During the growth process of Candida Albicans, toxic materials are emitted and spread throughout the body, producing the following symptoms/disorders:
Digestive System bloating, gas, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, constipation, inability to lose weight, insulin resistance.
Nervous System chronic fatigue, anxiety, mood swings, memory loss, brain-fog, depression and chronic insomnia. In children, hyperactivity, autism, quick anger "short fuse," and short attention span.
Skin hives, eczema, psoriasis, profuse sweating without physical exertion, acne, and nail fungus.
Genito-urinary Tract in women, mild to severe PMS symptoms including: depression, mood swings, fluid retention, cramps, recurrent vaginal or bladder infections, loss of sexual desire, crying for no unknown reason. In men, chronic rectal or anal itching, recurrent prostatitis, impotence, genital and inner thigh rashes.
Endocrine System thyroid dysfunction, adrenal "burn-out", pancreatic disorder. These disruptions cause symptoms of extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, low body temperature, tingling and numbness in fingers, feet and toes, sugar and carbohydrate cravings and insulin resistance.
Generalized Immune System recurrent infections of especially the ears, nose, throat, respiratory and vaginal/genital areas.
Hypersensitivity Syndrome this occurs as the body attempts to neutralize candida overgrowth by producing antibodies (proteins) in an attempt to neutralize the overgrowth. These antibodies cause the body to become hypersensitive to molds, foods and environmental factors.
What else do you need to do to eradicate candida yeast?
During and after cleansing your system, dietary changes are imperative to maintain a healthy balance...
- Eliminate all fruit and fruit juices, sugar, honey, fructose, maple syrup, bovine dairy products, soy sauce, mushrooms, yeast-based breads and baked goods, and peanuts.
- Limit your consumption of carbohydrate foods such as rice, pasta and breads to three to four servings daily (one serving equals 1 slice of bread, or 1/2 c. cooked rice or pasta). These carbs convert to sugar; therefore, a modified diabetic-type diet is also an anti-yeast diet.
- Drink plenty of pure water... At least 1/2 ounce of water per pound of body weight daily. For example: a 150 pound person needs to consume 75 oz. of water, or roughly 9 - 8 ounce glasses of water per day.
- Re-populate your intestinal tract with health-enhancing microorganisms including complexes of acidophilus and bifidus.
- Maintain a healthy intestinal ecology by performing periodic colon fiber cleanses, or get a series of colon hydrotherapy treatments and supplement your diet with natural fiber.
These are just some of the things you can do long-term to rebuild your immune system, digestive and overall health.
