I recently heard from my mother who is an RN about and problematic yeast in our bodies called Candida. I have read a few articles about it, and it seems that the best cure outlined is basically the primal blueprint lifestyle. I would like to gather some more information on here if there are doctors or just anyone that may have some more information about it. down below i will put a few of the symptoms and a brief explanation but i would love external input thanks.
Identifying Candida Symptoms
Candida is nearly an epidemic in our society and is responsible for many of the chronic illness categories we see so frequently. Candida symptoms are vast and all encompassing and can even incapacitate the individual.
Most people are unaware that it even exists, because most main stream doctors are uneducated about its impact on our health. People suffering from this condition often go from doctor to doctor for years and are usually told they are a hypochondriac or that it is stress or a psychiatric problem, before ever discovering the real culprit.
Candida Albicans is a yeast that occurs naturally in the human body. Normally it lives in harmony with a variety of other microorganisms and actually performs a couple important functions. The problem occurs when something upsets the balance of bacteria in the body and this allows the yeast organism to proliferate and take over all the healthy microorganisms.
It normally resides in the intestinal tract, mouth, throat and genitals, however it can burrow holes in the intestinal tract, enter the blood stream and then make it's way into any organ of the body. To make matters worse it emits over 70 different toxins into the body. Some people may even become allergic to the yeast itself.
Once this hardy organism proliferates in the body, it wrecks havoc in many ways and is the initiator of many common maladies, conditions, syndromes and illnesses in our population.
Some of the most frequent Candida symptoms are:
-abdominal gas and bloating
-cravings for alcohol
-cravings for sweets
-inability to think clearly or concentrate
-low sex drive
-sensitivity to fragrances and/or other chemicals
