Candida symptoms include acne, allergies of all kinds, rashes (including diaper rash), cradle cap, colic, dandruff, earaches, fatigue, joint pain and stiffness, cold hands and feet, gastrointestinal problems, bloating and excessive gas, chronic or recurring respiratory tract and sinus infections, yeast infections and thrush.

Cystitis, depression, eating disorders, numbness and tingling, white coating on the tongue, increased body hair, easily bruised, memory loss, frequent headaches, PMS, hives, jock itch, rectal itch, athlete’s foot, impotence, fungus growths on the cuticles, finger- and toenails, sensitivity to molds, perfumes and cigarette smoke, and blurred vision.

Candida albicans is a bacteria/fungus that occurs naturally in the human body; the problem comes when the Candida gets out of control.

Normally, the “good” bacteria in the gut- what we call probiotics – like acidophilus, keeps fungus, such as Candida, and “bad” bacteria (e Coli), at a static level.

When our “good” bacteria is destroyed through use of antibiotics – including the antibiotics used in livestock, dairy, and egg production of the foods we eat – high sugar intake, excessive alcohol or drug use (especially marijuana, for some reason), the bad guys are allowed to proliferate, and wreak havoc on our system.

The Candida fungus begins to dominate, actually enlarging the microscopic openings in the small intestine that we use to absorb nutrients into the bloodstream.

Because these openings have become larger than designed, food particles that are not yet fully digested are allowed through.

Then, the immune system, not “recognizing” the large particles, create antibodies to these food particles, initiating a cascading and increasingly worsening cycle of food allergies, developing into other allergies: hay fever, dust, dander, etc.

Candida now moves from its natural habitat in the gut to the bloodstream, where it can turn into a systemic infection. Candida symptoms of infection in the skin, nails, and vaginal and rectal areas are very annoying to say the least!

But even worse, the wastes from this fungus are toxic to your body, and will affect practically every system, directly or indirectly. They can, after years of uncontrolled systemic overgrowth, even cause mental illness (insanity).

Most fungal-based cancers are associated with Candida symptoms. This DOES NOT mean you WILL develop cancer from a Candida infection, only that it’s important to keep it under control. And, if you HAVE a fungal-based cancer, it will be necessary to take care of the Candida symptoms in the course of cancer treatment.

You may have Candida symptoms, and not have a Candida infection. You can get a simple test at your doctor’s office, or have a personalized wellness scan worked up for you.

Or if you’re more of a do-it-yourselfer, you need to get this bookYeast Infections No More. If you are suffering the intense itching, burning, pain and discomfort of Candida symptoms, you can cure yeast infection naturally…or your money back!

This eBook gives detailed descriptions and explanations of candida symptoms, natural home remedies for yeast infection, and side effects of anti-fungal medications. I can attest that these natural methods work, and usually very quickly.

Because dead Candida is not a whole lot more fun than live Candida, I highly recommend also doing a colon cleanse at the same time you’re killing off fungus. The idea is to get it out of your body as soon as possible; it makes life much more pleasant. 😀
