(NaturalNews) Chances are, you have Candida overgrowth. We all have Candida, just like we all have bacteria. And like the microbes in our gut and the rest of our body, it's all about balance. The problem is that in this day and age, our modern sugar laden, refined, and processed diet feeds Candida.
Here is an incomplete list of symptoms and other clues that are likely to be caused by too much yeast in your body. And while most (not all) of these can be signs of something else being out of balance, more often than not, if you regularly have even one of the symptoms, you've got too much Candida in your inner ecosystem.
Most skin problems are a sign of Candida overgrowth.
Skin problems such as acne, Keratosis pilaris, dry skin, hives, rashes, dandruff, and eczema are a sign of too much fungus in the body. You know all those white bumps on the back of your arms? You've got Candida overgrowth. I'm not saying that whiteheads are fungus. It's much more complicated than that.
Sometimes aforementioned skin problems such as rashes are a direct result of fungal abundance, but other times, the issues are an indirect result of the colon microbes being out of balance. For instance, acne is often caused by hormonal issues. Hormonal issues are often caused by, exacerbated by, or at the very least virtually always accompanied by, out of control Candida.
Athlete's foot and even an itchy arch are also a sure sign of too much Candida.
Diaper rash is almost always candida.
Itchy crotch, itchy vagina, yeast infections, and a funky discharge from the vagina and anus are sure signs of too much Candida
If you need a shower every day in order not to itch, you've got too much yeast
in your body. If you itch or feel a stinging sensation around your anus or your perineum when you wipe after bowel movements, that's another sure sign. If it smells funky down there, while this may be perfectly normal, it's also a sign of Candida overgrowth.
Yes, bacteria are one of the primary causes of body odor. But what many people don't know is that "bad bacteria" (what we call bacteria that doesn't benefit us) coincides with too much fungus in the body. If you need antiperspirant or deodorant and daily showers, again this is totally normal, but it's a sign of too much fungus.
Trouble with digestion, gas, bloating
Digestive problems, gas, and bloating can be signs of other issues such as kidney problems, allergies, and more. But typically, whenever someone is unhealthy in one area, they also have Candida issues. Too much Candida in the gut means not enough beneficial bacteria to digest food properly, and this can cause fermentation. Too much Candida in the whole body and even the stomach and kidneys are affected. While we're on the subject of gas, slow kidney function causes flatulence, and as mentioned, this can be caused by too much fungus.
Allergies and allergic reactions
Many times when people think they are having an allergic reaction due to a rash with hives, this is actually a spike in fungus that is out of control. Antibiotics cause these reactions in people regularly because they cull all of the beneficial bacteria that balance our body's ecosystem.
Seasonal allergies and food allergies tend to vanish when Candida is brought completely under control. It sounds radical, I know, but it's true.
Other signs of too much Candida include thrush or a white tongue, itchy ear canals, and sugar cravings. Candida overgrowth also leads to a host of other health issues from insomnia to severe mood swings. While Candida is not the sole cause of most health issues, it accompanies almost every health issue.
