Candida, More Than a Yeast Infection

If you have ever

  • felt an over all sickness,
  • if you have ever taken prescription drugs--antibiotics,
  • sought the help of a lot of doctors,
  • have taken birth control pills,
  • issuses with fatigue and/or muscle aches,
  • food sensitivities, and/or allergies,

  • digestive problems,
  • cravings for sugar--something sweet,
  • brain fog,
  • issues with deppression and/or feelings of irritability,
  • headaches,
  • chemical, perfume, and/or tobacco smoke sensitivities...

If so, these problems could be yeast related.

As for a definition, Candida albicans is a yeast, a single-cell living organism which lives on the surface of all living things, such as fruits, vegetables, grains, as well as the skin, thus contributing in a variety of ways to the health of its owner.

Did you know that women between the ages of 20 and 55 are more prone to develop problems affiliated with yeast?

Most symptoms include, but are not limited to:

  • weight gain
  • frequent vaginal yeast infections
  • frequent urinary tract infections
  • PMS
  • burning sensation in the vulva
  • low libido/no sex drive
  • pain during intercourse
  • infertility
  • endometriosis
  • interstitial cystitis

Believe it or not, both men, as well as children can develop issues in the area of yeast.

Other issues/complaints possibly yeast related are:

  • numbness
  • tingling sensations
  • ringing in the ears
  • body odor, including bad breath
  • hair loss
  • multiple sclerosis
  • Chrohn's disease
  • ITBS--irritable bowel syndrome
  • colitis
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • myasthenia gravis--muscle weakness
  • eczema
  • acne
  • lupus
  • asthma
  • sinusitis
  • psoriasis
  • hives
