Candidosis, the 21st century’s disease
We cannot talk about candidosis and not talk about bacteria, microbes and germs. Let me tell you all about it.
We live everyday with these microbes and we maintain a symbiotic relationship with them. We cannot escape it… it’s part of our life.
In other words, millions of bacteria and other fungus are the happy residents of our nose, mouth, gums, throat, lungs and intestines: part of a balance that does not cause any harm and is part of our good health.
These microorganisms are part of our life as much as our food is.
More than 400 microbe species live in harmony with your digestive flora.
Most of them are part of a number of physiological processes such as vitamin K secretion, balance of the flora and effective immunity.
As long as this sophisticated bacterial environment is well balanced, we are not aware of its existence and simply enjoy good immunity. But, when anything comes to harm this balance, we start noticing the side effects of our immunity being challenged. Our immune system is a complex combination of interrelated processes, all working in harmony in order to protect our body against unwanted microbial invasions.
It is crucial to understand that most of infectious diseases are not triggered because a specific germ decides to attack our body, but rather because at a specific time, our immunity was challenged thanks to a stress, a poor diet and nutrition level, various courses of antibiotics or toxic drugs.
- Our lymphocytes are in charge of germ destruction. This defense needs to be fueled with various amino-acids, vitamins and mineral to be effective.
If one of these nutriments comes to lack, production may decrease and not supply enough lymphocytes.
- Germ invasions also trigger antibody production.
This production requires a specific concentration in amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and oligo elements.
- Most infectious diseases happen because of a lack in immunity, which is the consequence of an inadequate diet not supplying a sufficient amount of nutrition to the body.
Of course, other circumstances favor certain germ development more than others and this is the case of a yeast better known as candida albicans.
Know your germs
Among the hundreds of germ species living peacefully in our body, this common fungus exists in all of us. At a normal state this yeast lives on the mucosa of our digestive system, in our mouth, our stomach and doesn’t trigger any particular issue. But for various reasons, this yeast may overdevelop and be at the origin of issue.
But for various reasons, this yeast may overdevelop and be at the origin of numerous troubles.
Candida overgrowth is responsible for an important number of symptoms, which together may constitute a disease in itself.
The most concerned organs are the GI tract, GU tract, endocrine system, nervous system and of course, a depletion of the immune system.
According to the most recent epidemiological studies, in the United States, 80 million people suffer from chronic Candidosis and its effects.
Despite the fact it has been labeled “ the Yeast syndrome” and in response to the real concerns chronic Candidosis brings to developed populations, health practitioners (mainly medical doctors) omit to take it into consideration in their prognosis and to talk about it with their patients.
This is why, today, people have to educate themselves on the subject and handle their Candidosis issues by themselves with any natural tools available.

What about you: Do you have anything to share about candidosis? Have you already followed an antifungal treatment? Was it successful?
