Understanding Candida Overgrowth
One of the most underdiagnosed health conditions we see in natural health is an overgrowth of the yeast Candida Albicans. The signs and symptoms relating to the condition are wide and varied and can be hard to identify. Candida is a natural yeast that can be present in the human body called Candida Albicans. When the body’s internal eco system is in balance this yeast resides in the body in harmony with other microorganisms. The symptoms associated with Candida overgrowth come when the balance of bacteria in the body is out of balance allowing the yeast to grow at an alarming rate and essentially take over the healthy microorganisms within the body.
Candida Albicans typically lives within the mouth, throat, intestines and genitals. Candida can irritate the lining in the intestines and get into the blood stream of the body causing a host of health complaints. Candida lets off numerous toxins which can cause the liver and other organs of the body to be overwhelmed and can contribute to brain fog, fatigue, altered immune function and inflammation in the body.
The most prominent symptoms individuals experience when suffering from Candida include extreme fatigue, abdominal bloating, anxiety, itching, mood swings, concentration issues, digestive issues, hyperactivity, diarrhea or constipation, chronic pain, acid reflux, thrush, learning difficulty, muscle weakness, increased sensitivity to smells such as fumes and sprays, nausea, increased sensitivity to alcohol, brain fog, itchy skin, eczema, fatigue, headaches, sinus problems, jock itch fungal skin and nail infections. While thrush is a well known symptom of Candida in women, not everyone who has an overgrowth of Candida in their system will have symptoms of thrush. In fact it is very common for not just women, but men and children to have an overgrowth of Candida in their digestive system which can be contributing to poor health.
