Candida Yeast Infection

The Candida yeast infection is a fungus that can be appear on skins, in the gut,
mouth or any other mucus membranes. The cause for Candida yeast infection is the
multiplication of yeast fungi. The good news is that the Candida yeast infection
does not spread across the whole body, but in fact it limits itself to the
infected mucus areas. Yet, there is a more dangerous type of Candida yeast
infection that can even present danger to the patient’s life, in case he or she
has damaged immune system by diseases like cancer or AIDS.  This problem
is also referred to as Candida Albicans.

Candida yeast infection is very difficult to cure. Antibiotics can have
a really negative effect and are not recommended, because they reduce the
number of the microorganisms living in the gastrointestinal area and allow bad
bacteria to grow in that area. It might sound strange, but the most effective
treatment is provided by the GI tract microflora bacteria. It works by eating
all the food available for bacteria, therefore leaving the bad bacteria to
literally starve to death. Another benefit is that it also keeps a low
level of pH which is not allowing the development of other microorganisms.

The most common causes of Candida yeast
infection are antibiotics, detergents or
even scented products for intimate use.
Therefore, use your bathing products
carefully, make sure you buy low pH ones
and keep your body dry and clean. 

Statistics show that as much as 75% of
women will experience at least one
vaginal Candida yeast infection in their
lifetime. It can cause abdominal pain,
fatigue, skin infections, and even
cognitive difficulties. If not treated
properly, Candida yeast infection can
lead to a condition called Leaky Gut
Syndrome that develops in the intestinal
tract. It allows toxins to leave the
digestive tract and feed right into the

The symptoms related to Candida yeast
infection are: arthritis, vaginitis,
muscle pain, headaches, memory loss,
fatigue, digestive disorders, skin
problems, impotence, depression,
menstrual problems, urinary disorders,
food and environmental allergies. Those
symptoms vary depending on the location
of the infection. Candida yeast
infection is more common to women and
causes the vagina to be itchy and
irritating. It can also cause pain
during sexual intercourse and a burning
sensation during urination.

When Candida yeast infection affects
the mouth, it causes bleeding and makes
the tongue appear to be red in color. It
is really painful and can contribute to
eating disorders. Quite often this
infection causes older people to have
sores and cracks at the sides of their
mouth. A must-do for anyone suffering
from it is to avoid dehydration. The
real danger is when this type of
infection extends down from the mouth,
into the esophagus until it reaches the
stomach. Then it does not allow the food
to be totally absorbed and can
potentially cause dehydration. If
Candida yeast infection reaches the
bloodstream people gets sick (with or
without fever) and causes acute changes
in behavior or mental function when it
strikes the brain.

 Therefore, if you are experiencing some
of the symptoms above, never take
antibiotics on your own and consult your
primary care physician.  Learn if
you really have Candida Albicans.
