3/24/2017 12:51 PM
What Is Candida Albicans?
Candida is classified as a fungus; this is a type of yeast. It can be found in the mouth and intestines. The functions of candida in the body include aiding digestion and supporting the body to absorb nutrients better.
When there is an excess of candida in the body, it can lead to health complications. Excess amounts of candida in the intestines can cause a break in the intestines walls permitting it to go into the bloodstream.
The consequence of this is an introduction of harmful toxins into the body which will result in a leaking gut. There is a number of discomforting health problems that can be experienced when this happens.
In the medical field today, it is common to overlook the symptoms of candida because they can initially be subtle. During my years of working as a physician, I have come across these symptoms many times and it is good to note that once the issues arising from an excess candida was resolved, the patients’ health was restored.
10 actions that can cause the overgrowth of candida
Candida overgrowth can be checked by promoting healthy bacteria into the gut, the following factors can cause an excessive candida growth-
1. Taking very potent antibiotics that kill off too many friendly bacteria.
3. Taking oral Corticosteroids
4. High alcohol consumption
5. Cancer Cures
6. Eating a high carbohydrates diet
7. Eating a diet high in beneficial fermented foods
9. Weakened Immune System
10. Living a stressful lifestyle
8 common symptoms of candida:
1. Chronic Fatigue or Fibromyalgia:
Suffering from constant fatigue and exhaustion that is not alleviated by sufficient rest is a symptom of chronic fatigue syndrome. Other symptoms that will be experienced include headaches, joint aches, cognitive difficulties leading to memory challenges and sore throat
2. Mood swings, anxiety, and depression:
These symptoms of candida are similar to common health problems, there have been identified as strongly linked with the presence of excess candida. The patients can also experience panic attacks and irritability.
3. Vaginal infections, urinary tract infections, rectal itching, or vaginal itching:
Candida is usually the culprit behind a case of persistent vaginal and urinary tract infections. This also means that it can be sexually transmitted in an alarming pattern that can spread among many partners.
4. Digestive challenges like bloating, constipation, or diarrhea:
Patients suffering from persistent intestinal challenges should undergo tests to check for a candida infection. Discomforting illnesses like flatulence, bloating, frequent burping, constipation and diarrhea and stomach cramps is usually an indication that there is a reduced volume of healthy bacteria in the patient’s digestive tract.
5. Poor concentration, memory lapses, lack of focus, ADD, ADHD, and brain fog:
Studies have isolated symptoms like mood changes, chronic fatigue, and brain fog as the commonly overlooked indications that a patient is suffering from candida. This health condition causes difficulty in focusing, lapses in physical coordination, inability to pay full concentration and poor memory.
6. Skin and nail fungal infections for example athlete’s foot and toenail fungus:
Candida promotes yeast infections that lead to athlete’s foot and the discomforting presence of fungus in the toenails. In cases where this condition persists, the diagnosis usually indicates a systematic candida infection.
7. Hormonal Imbalance:
Hormonal imbalance is a common symptom of candida; this will lead to other health conditions. Patients who experience hormonal imbalance will experience issues like early menopause, PMS, low sex drive, migraines, endometriosis, water retention, mood swings and excess weight gain.
8. Chronic sinus complications, allergies, and itchy ears:
Sinus complications have made the list of candida overgrowth symptoms though the causative factors are not known. Sinus complications as a result of candida overgrowth will manifest as persistent coughing, post nasal drip, congestion in the chest, flu-like symptoms and varying allergies.
Other symptoms that can be linked to Candida overgrowth include
Weak immune system, uncontrollable craving for sugar and carbohydrates, bad breath or halitosis and the presence of white coat on tongue
The first step to checking this health condition is by avoiding foods containing sugar. The reason for this is sugar promotes the growth of yeast. All sources of sugar should be avoided upon the diagnosis of candida overgrowth in a patient.
Limit consumption of fruits
Eating fruits rich in fiber will help to neutralize the prominence of sugar in the system. However, patients suffering from chronic yeast infections should limit the consumption of fruits to a maximum of two daily.
Healthy Candida Cleanse Pills: Candid Cleanz
The following method will completely free the patient from any health complications arising from candida overgrowth. Our healthy Candida is potent in removing all traces of candida, yeast, and fungi. This eliminates the stress of adhering to a strict diet free from carbohydrate and sugar.
The use of Probiotics
The use of high-quality probiotics will also heal a patient suffering from candida overgrowth. I have formulated Biodigex Probiotics which is excellent for the human digestive tract. It contains the right strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium in the right amount to maintain the volume of good flora in the digestive and vaginal tract.
The frequent use of Biodigex will effectively reduce and prevent the chronic yeast infections characteristic of candida overgrowth. Many of my patients previously tried other supplements and probiotics to resolve their health challenges with candida overgrowth unsuccessfully until they switched over to our products.
Finally, avoid taking antibiotics, many kinds of antibiotics kill off healthy flora present to maintenance a good bacterial balance in your system. The absence of flora in the system will make a patient prone to yeast infections.
We should also note that some people might experience a “diet off” reaction when the candida is being killed off from their system, for this reason, we suggest the use of Digesful, this is our Colon Cleanse formula formulated to detox the internal organs naturally.
We have been pleased with the amazing results when these products were used. The reports indicated the restoration of proper functions to the digestive tract and a return of general health after undergoing the treatment for candida. Like I always say, your health is in your hands. You can get rid of harmful toxins to improve your health.

“Fast shipping, awesome customer service. You can smell the oregano in them, to me that's good :) means good quality ingredients. I just started taking these a little over a week ago and I'm already getting a reaction in my sinuses, which is good too :) Sinus infections have been part of the candida issue for me so to me it's a sign it's having an effect. I've tried several candida formulas that didn't seem to help or have any effect, so I'm already hopeful these will be helpful for me.”

“Great Cleanse! I purchased this Best Colon Cleanse about a month ago, I have been using it and I have to say after just a week I lost 4 lbs and lost the bloated feeling I had for quite some time. I am currently down 16 lbs and have gone down two pant sizes. I have to warn you though the first three days I was in the bathroom quite a bit and I recommend you start on a weekend so you can stay home as running to the bathroom at work is not fun, trust me!! But I really love the product and I plan on doing it every 6 months. I think you will find it as helpful as I have.”

“Yes, the Forskolin work. Great for low carbers! I have been taking these for going on 3 weeks and YES, they work! I have to be honest, I had my doubts ... but I don't have the morning gains that I had when I wasn't taking them when I indulged in more carbs than I should. I've tried Plexus Block - and, those work too .. but WAY more expensive than these. So if you're looking for a good carb blocker ... look no further!”

“Useful and Great Brain Supplement.The best combination of brain nutrients I have ever taken all in one capsule. I used to take all of these brain nutrients separately. I believe that is much smoother in terms of energy and it works better for stress, mood regulation and anxiety. It made me not crave caffeine or alcohol, don't know what's that about but I don't care for it anymore. Also my memory skills have improved, I remember more things and memorize things better. It is a great supplement I recommend it, it doesn’t upset your stomach i just started taking it and I really feel better already my mental focus is sharper.”
