Candidiasis

Skin disease, Fungal infection

Candidiasis is a fungal infection which is caused by yeast-like fungi. In some cases, candidiasis is very persistent and unpleasant and can often come back. It is a common condition, which can lead to a large number of chronic symptoms. Candidiasis is not recognized by mainstream medicine.


Cause

A yeast often found in humans is Candida albicans. This yeast is present in almost everyone as a normal inhabitant of the skin, mouth, intestine and vagina and forms a certain balance with the bacteria present there. A candidiasis infection usually occurs when the immune system is weakened and the intestinal flora is disturbed. Therefore, the yeast can form wires. From that moment on, we speak of a fungus.

The disruption may be caused, for example, by the following:

In the majority of cases, the cause is a combination of one or more of the factors listed above. Candidiasis is not contagious.


Symptoms

There are three common types of candidiasis: the oral cavity (thrush, is common in infants), the vagina (vaginal yeast infection) and the intestines (intestinal yeast infection). Candidiasis can cause many symptoms and can disrupt the life of the patient completely. Possible signs and symptoms are:

Not all signs and symptoms occur only as a result of candidiasis.


Diagnosis

To diagnose candidiasis, all kinds of methods are proposed, such as Live Blood Analysis (LBA), electroacupuncture, kinesiology, bioresonance, etc. Scientific research, however, has never been able to prove that these methods can detect candida albicans or an infection with this yeast.


Treatment

In practice, it turns out that candidiasis can best be addressed on multiple fronts simultaneously. An adapted diet is always effective. There is an anti-candidiasis diet. By avoiding products with lots of sugar, the yeast becomes devoid of nutrients. In addition, supplementary medications can be used. In case of prolonged and severe symptoms, there will often be proposed to use medicines that keep off or kill the yeast. In natural medicine, supplements based on caprylic acid, grapefruit seed extract, garlic, pau d’arco and/or papaya are frequently used.


Prognosis

Vaginal candidiasis usually responds to treatment within a few days. Oral candidiasis is often difficult to treat, especially in combination with other immunological conditions. The results of the treatment depend on the size and the location of the infection and whether the patient has an underlying life-threatening illness. The presence of candidiasis in the bloodstream (candidemia) has a mortality rate of thirty to forty percent.
