Candida Albicans

Candida & Weight Loss

Candida in the gut

There is a strong relationship between weight gain, difficulty in loosing weight and over growth of Candida Albicans, an opportunistic fungus or yeast that often over whelms the body after
antibiotic use, passage from person to person with the exchange of body fluids, direct contact, or over consumption of sweets.

It may be found in the reproductive tract, the mouth, the GI tract and in the blood. There are several common signs of Candida Albicans including vaginal yeast infections, thrush, jock itch and athlete’s foot.

Candida Albicans has been linked to a number of health conditions including; asthma, depression, dizziness, fatigue, headaches, hypoglycemia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), learning disabilities, menstrual problems, Migraines, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Syndrome (MCSS), Prostatitis, sinus problems, and Urinary Tract Infections (UTI).

One of the major secondary problems associated with Candida Albicans is weight gain or inability to lose weight and stay with a diet. A person with systemic Candida Albicans will often crave sugar and simple carbohydrates because this is the main source of nutrients for yeast. Mood swings and depression are often associated with the rapid change in blood sugar levels caused by the yeast.

People often complain of gas and bloating caused by the fermentation of foods in their intestines by the yeast which naturally release gas. The fermentation of foods in the intestine may also lead to alcohol production that is absorbed through the gut and may lead to symptoms of confusion, altered behavior, and difficulty concentrating.

Determining whether you have a Candida Albicans can make a big difference on how easy you will be able to lose weight and succeed with weight loss over time. Questions to determine if you may have Candida Albicans:

1. Have you used antibiotics in the last 2 years?

2. Do you have gas or bloating?

3. Do you have sugar cravings?

4. Do you have low blood sugar?

5. Do you have history of yeast infections, vaginal, oral, athletes foot, or jock itch?

6. Does your partner have a history of yeast infections, vaginal, oral, athletes foot, or jock itch?

7. Are you sensitive to smells?

8. Are you sensitive to alcohol?

9. Do you suffer from symptoms that your doctor cannot explain like; headaches, migraines, depression, diarrhea, dizziness, IBS, menstrual or sinus problems?

10. Do you feel fatigued all the time?

11. Do you have a hard time concentrating?

12. Do you just not feel right?

A yes answers to 6 or more questions above, associated with any of the signs or symptoms listed above, is a good indicator that you may have a Candida Albicans problem.

Candia Albicans can be diagnosed by a blood analysis, though many traditional physicians do not regularly order this test. When Candida Albicans presents itself as a vaginal yeast infection or athletes foot it will often be treated with medication. Medications may be oral or topical and can be in prescription or over the counter strength. The problem with medication is that they are often short term and or do not get to the root of the problem. However when it is in your digestive tract a more aggressive approach may be needed.

It's important to learn correct food habits and if you are having any food allergies or sensitivities. Not going back to bad eating habits is crucial to prevent Candida Albicans from returning. However, by supporting the body’s ability to fight off this fungus with probiotics, digestive enzymes and herbal anti-fungal supplement like Agrisept, will allow you to kill of this fungus without the use of harmful mediation.
