We all live in a virtual sea of microorganisms – bacteria, viruses, and fungi. They don’t cause illness (even for Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria associated with stomach cancer) unless our immunity becomes poor.
Candida albicans is a yeast that lives in the mouth, throat, intestines and genitourinary tract of most humans. A chronic sore throat, tonsillitis, allergies, vaginal infection, gums infection and itchy anus, heartburn, diarrhea are all associated with candidiasis.
What many of us don’t realize is that many other symptoms such as dizziness, eye floaters, fatigue, mood swings, not able to coordinate movement, wheezing, joint swelling, ear pain, tearing eyes, bad breath, drowsiness, numbness, hives, asthma, cold hands and feet, and headache are also associated with candidiasis.
Candidiasis is also believed to be associated with cancer. I am not surprised since it is a result of lowered immunity.
It is very tough yeast to get rid of. Some of us may need months and even years to lower this yeast in our system. This is why I advocate many to start with my SL gut program to restore digestive function. This 3 to 6 weeks program will also improve thyroid function (note: thyroid reading ok doesn’t mean your thyroid function is optimal), liver function, colon/intestine cleansing, lung cleansing, and skin cleansing. Thereafter, you need to take some herbs to maintain digestive integrity since many of us are exposed to all kinds of food, chlorinated water, chemicals, and stress, which may be lower our immunity.
