What Are The Symptoms Of Candida Overgrowth?
When there is an overgrowth of candida you don’t feel well. There may be signs and symptoms indicating your health is not at its best, and the truth is that it can’t be at its best and can continue to spiral downward unless treated.
As candida overgrows in your intestinal tract it can wreak havoc on your body. There are symptoms that candida is more known for like vaginal infections, gas, bloating, stomach pain, constipation, sugar and carbohydrate cravings, or thrush. The tricky part is that negative symptoms caused by candida can be far reaching and are not always located in the gut.
Aside from the digestive symptoms candida overgrowth can affect other organ systems such as your skin, respiratory tract, brain, mood, immune system, hormones, and reproductive tract.
Symptoms can include acne, eczema or rashes, psoriasis, athletes foot, toe nail fungus, energy problems like chronic fatigue or exhaustion, psychiatric including anxiety, depression, brain fog, attention deficit, difficulty concentrating, immune problems causing autoimmune diseases, frequent sinus infections, autoimmune thyroiditis, hormone imbalance like estrogen dominance, or testosterone deficiency, frequent urinary tract and or vaginal infections, and more.
Candida Overgrowth Is Under Diagnosed And Under Treated
Conventional medicine provide a diagnosis or disease name that can include chronic diseases such as Irritable Bowel syndrome, Fibromylagia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autoimmune Disease, Attention Deficit Disorder, Depression, Panic Disorder, or other disease name.
In reality these are symptoms of other underlying problems one of which can be Candida Overgrowth. In a way its a mis-diagnosis because the root causes of the disease names are never fully investigated one of which can be candida overgrowth.
Correctly diagnosing Candida overgrowth requires an index of suspicion, clinical symptoms, blood testing, functional stool testing as well as testing for other blood abnormalities that can go along with candida overgrowth to help make the diagnosis.
Once diagnosed, treatment can be challenging because candida is opportunistic, changes form, and hides behind biofilm while weakening the immune system. Further the person affected may not have an optimal immune system especially given the conditions that resulted in candida overgrowth in their body like poor diet, stress, antibiotics and other medications.
For more challenging circumstances appropriate anti fungal medication for the appropriate length of time in addition to botanicals, treatment for leaky gut and addressing other underlying imbalances is necessary to successfully eliminate candida overgrowth.
After battling Candida for years due to conventional medical treatments done to me as a child I had to learn the absolute best solutions for tackling candida.
I formulated Health Restore Candida Clear Program to help eliminate candida overgrowth and all the negative symptoms and problems like leaky gut and autoimmunity that can come along with it.
There are many claims of quick fixes that seems easy but the fact these that candida and SIBO are not easily treated and expertise is needed and a combination of treatments to properly eradicate the problem for the long run and restore health and well-being.
In my practice I identify and treat these problems successfully regularly. Its important to note that when we treat these problems we must also treat why these problems developed in the first place otherwise there will be in long-term success.
I have seen miraculous improvements in health, elimination of long-standing chronic illnesses including autoimmune disease when we correctly identify and treat candida and SIBO and their underlying causes.
Candida, Leaky Gut, And Autoimmunity
You may have noticed that the symptoms of candida can affect many different areas of your body besides the gut.
This is because candida is one major culprit to intestinal wall damage, where candida damages healthy intestinal wall cells, damaging their tight junctions that the cells together tightly, creating leaky gut. In the healthy state, your intestinal cells layers are held together tightly and allow only vital micronutrients to pass through into your blood stream while they keep out toxins.
Candida damages the intestinal cell layer and causes the tight junctions to leak microbes, toxins, larger food particles that are not fully digested into your bloodstream, this is called leaky gut and causes many ill symptoms such as food allergies, fatigue, nutritional deficiencies, digestive problems, joint pains, headaches, skin problems, fibromyalgia and chronic disease such as thyroid disease and autoimmune disease.
The toxins, microbes, and undigested food particles that leak into your blood stream because of leaky gut trigger inflammation and activating your immune system to try to fight off these invaders that would not be in the bloodstream under normal healthy circumstances.
As leaky gut continues your immune system stays hyper surveillant making antibodies in an attempt to clear the toxins causing more inflammation. With time this causes chronic inflammation and confusion and weakness in the immune system causing it to attack self tissue in addition to the invaders (microbes, undigested foods, toxins) causing autoimmunity.
The weakened confused immune system can attack any organ system in this process, for example joints, skin, thyroid, kidney creating rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, lupus, nephropathy and more.
Overcome Candida Overgrowth
The good news is that by overcoming Candida Overgrowth you can also begin to tackle leaky gut and prevent or heal autoimmune disease
Step one involves empowering yourself with knowledge about Candida and exactly how it comes about through the Candida Clear Guide and Candida Clear Protocol so you know exactly what’s involved and how to best succeed.
Step two is creating the right environment in your gut that starves Candida. You will be guided through this by using the Health Restore Candida Clear Diet that includes a helpful shopping list and guide so you have the exact right foods on board to help you be successful.
Step 3 is attacking Candida and breaking down Candida’s tough biofilm with proven supplements that destroy Candida’s cell wall and break down the tough biofilm it hides under. I use and love Candibac Clear a powerful blend of natural antimicrobial and coconut derived short chain fatty acids and BioFilm MaxDefense a powerful blend of plant-based enzymes that break down the cell walls and biofilm of Candida weakening and destroying it but also creating an environment that makes it hard for candida to overgrow.
Step 4 is nourishing and protecting your gut and immune system by repopulating it with good bacteria and helping to heal damage done by candida to the intestinal lining. I recommend Therbiotics Supreme Daily DF that is a high potency, acid stable, heat resistant probiotic formula with 30billion colony forming units (CFUs) contains 100 billion colony forming units (CFUs) of high-quality, good bacteria. Restoring your gut’s beneficial gut bacteria will help prevent candida from overgrowing, strengthen your immune system to better tackle candida, and help heal damage done by candida to your intestinal lining. I use Collagen peptide Powder (Grass-fed), as the perfect team member to the candida clear team. It can be easily mixed into shakes and smoothies, or tea, coffee, or soup and enjoyed while it helps nourish your gut and as a bonus nourish your skin, nails, and joints.
Step 5 the final step assures that your liver and detoxification pathways are supported to help assure you eliminate toxins released by candida as it dies off. I included HepatoProtect to make sure your liver and detoxification pathways are supported so they function at their best and give you antioxidant support as you tackle candida. This will help you with any possible negative ‘die off’ symptoms you may feel as you eliminate candida overgrowth and flush it and its toxic byproducts out of your system.
To make it easy for you, I’ve created a complete Health Restore Candida Clear Program with a guide, protocol, shopping list, diet, and the right supplements to give you the support you need to be successful at beating candida overgrowth and restoring health to your gut.
