Candida Albicans is the official name of the fungus or fungi responsible for fungal infection. It is normal to live in the human body in symbiosis with a variety of other healthy bacteria.
Actually, it has a very important function in identifying and detecting other pathogenic bacteria that can enter the body. Sometimes there is a process in the body that allow its excessive development which causes infections that are associated with a variety of unpleasant symptoms. One of its functions is the decomposition of dead tissue.
Candida albicans can cause degenerative and immune diseases, and certain abnormal emotional states.
While it was once limited to Candida vaginal form of the female population in recent years it has been steadily rising, expanding also to other organs and is excreted in the male population also.
Once the Candida albicans residence in the gastrointestinal tract, changing its shape and penetrates the intestinal wall where it enters the bloodstream, which enables it to travel throughout the body. Then, it can settle anywhere: lungs, joints, muscles, sinuses, brain, gallbladder, liver, or at any other place. When it penetrate the intestinal wall, leaving microscopic cracks, which can lead to damage of the intestinal mucosa and food allergies for entering undigested food particles and various toxins in the body.
Infections caused by Candida is known under various names such as damage to the intestinal lining, athlete’s foot, vaginal yeast infection, candida, yeast candida, yeast syndrome or fungal infection.
When you take an antibiotic, it kills all the bacteria in your body, the bad and the good. The problem is that your body needs good bacteria to stay healthy, and to be able to prevent opportunistic invaders such as candida, which if not controlled.
Antibiotics do not affect the candidates and therefore, when all the good bacteria are eliminated, candidates are free to expand and take control in the body.
The main food source for Candida albicans is sugar. Almost every food we ingest contains sugar or starch. Simple carbohydrates and sugar will feed the Candida and facilitate its development. The problem of poor quality diet is therefore greater the lower the intake of vitamins and minerals that keep the immune system strong. Due to weak immune system, the body is more exposed to the possibility of excessive development of Candida.
Other factors that contribute to the excessive development of the fungus are oral contraceptives, antacids, anti-ulcers, cortisone, weak immune system, heavy metals, mercury leaking from dental fillings, environmental toxins, chlorinated drinking water, insufficient quantities of important enzymes, synthetic estrogen , PH value of the body that is too acidic and medications that weaken the immune system.
Candida creates and releases over 70 different toxins, such as ethanol and acetaldehyde, in your bloodstream, which not only that creates a number of problems in your organism, but also they weakens your immune system.
Ethanol is an alcohol and acetaldehyde is linked with formaldehyde. These toxins adversely affect the normal functioning of the body’s functions. They can also interfere with the function and mimic estrogen and other hormones in the body, thus creating a hormonal imbalance in the body, resulting in problems with the thyroid and other glands. These toxins also can overload the liver and interfere with the operation of its normal function.
Many people are not even aware that candida can affect arthritis, headaches, migraines, anxiety, depression, aggression, changes in mood, fatigue, swelling of the throat, gas, bloating, frequent cough, irritable bowel syndrome, hyperactivity, memory problems, lack of concentration, ulcers, eczema, hormonal changes, problems with menstruation, inability to weight loss, Crohn’s disease, inflammation of the prostate gland (prostatitis), autism and more.
