Candida albicans is a yeast-like fungus that inhabits the gastrointestinal tract, genitourinary tract, mouth, and throat. This organism, which normally lives in a healthy balance with other bacteria and yeasts within the body, can multiply out of control resulting in a condition known as candidiasis. This overgrowth can manifest in diverse symptoms, such as tiredness, digestive disorders, bloating, constipation or diarrhea, vaginitis, cystitis, menstrual problems, migraines, numbness or tingling of the face or extremities, allergies, itching, sinus infections, thrush, irritability, anxiety, depression, mood swings, and forgetfulness. It affects both men and women. For additional information, you may also refer to the Fungal Infections page of this guide.

The use of certain pharmaceuticals (such as cortisone, oral contraceptives, and antibiotics) may upset the balance and cause an overgrowth of Candida in some individuals.
Certain foods may aggravate Candida overgrowth, depending on the individual. Common problem foods are: aged and fermented foods, alcohol, chocolate, dried fruits, gluten-containing grains, vinegars, sugary products, and yeast-containing products. The diet may need to be free of fruit, sugars, yeast, and high-carbohydrate foods. The patient should eat vegetables and meats, including fish. Eating live yogurt adds acidophilus to the body and helps restore normal balance.
Inform your patient that cotton clothing is preferred over synthetic fabrics that tend to hold in moisture.
Individuals with chronic fungal infections may have a suppressed immune system. Immune systems may become compromised by toxins, infections, stress, or pharmaceuticals such as antibiotics, cortisone, and birth control pills, to name a few. High mercury levels have been linked to fungal infections. If toxic levels are present, you may wish to consider Energique’s Metalstat, Dentastat, or other detoxifiers.
