candidiasis-germsAre you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? Is your doctor unable to find the cause of your health symptoms? You may have a yeast-connected health problem, which has gone undiagnosed… until now!

Candida Albicans is a yeast-like fungus, which naturally lives in the digestive tract, kept in check by the friendly bacteria, Lactobacillus Acidophilus. This fungus occurs in small colonies and co-exists with microorganisms and bacteria in healthy men, women and children. However, when the body’s immune system becomes compromised due to stress, poor diet, illness or excessive use of drugs (antibiotics, cortisone medications, birth control pills), this fungal-bacterial balance is disrupted and the fungal colonies overgrow, becoming strong, invasive and toxic.

A yeast cell produces over 75 known toxic substances, which can poison the body and prevent the absorption and assimilation of nutrients. As the imbalances between the good bacteria (Lactobacillus Acidophilus) and bad bacteria (Candida Albicans) increase, toxins contaminate the tissues, weakening the immune system, glands, kidneys, bladder, lungs, liver, brain and nervous system, causing a multitude of health problems and discomfort. An estimated 79 million Americans suffer with Candida related disease, however, many are inaccurately diagnosed and treated.

Adults, as well as children are at risk of Candida (yeast) overgrowth. Many children are born with it or develop it after they are exposed to antibiotics. A pregnant woman may experience an increase in Candida growth due to hormonal changes. An outbreak could occur in the birth canal, allowing the baby to come into contact with it and become infected as she passes through the birth canal. Severe diaper rash, rectal rashes or infections, rashes in the genital area, and colic are the most common symptoms in babies. Thrushes, rashes, infections of the ear, nose, and throat, gas, diarrhea or constipation are possible indications of Candida overgrowth. In addition, food allergies, asthma or eczema may occur as a result of excess yeast growth. A child with Candida overgrowth may be mislabeled hyperactive or learning disabled. Many times children will manifest a multiple allergic syndrome, displaying behavioral and learning difficulties due to reactions of food, chemicals and preservatives. It has been reported that children who have both behavioral or learning disabilities and Candida infection display a marked reduction of symptoms once the yeast lives within a “normal” harmonious balance.

In general, people may digest less than 50% of their food because Candida – or an increase of intestinal yeast, creates a digestive conflict and robs them of nutrition.  Foods that can help with Candida Albicans include yogurt with probiotic cultures, Garlic and Flax seeds, along with certain nutrients (Cat’s Claw, Olive Leaf, Garlic and Grapefruit Seed). Foods to avoid may include refined flour and sugars, honey, maple syrup, fruit juice, milk, cheeses, alcoholic beverages, dried fruits and peanuts.

A medically supervised Detoxification Program can eliminate toxins from the body. To strengthen the immune system, an immune booster program of vitamins, minerals and herbs; along with exercise, physical therapy, chiropractic care or acupuncture may be recommended.

“After the birth of my son, I began having a chronic yeast infection every month. This had been an on-going problem for almost three years. I knew something was wrong with me because I was also experiencing other symptoms such as tiredness all the time, irritability, memory loss, I was slightly over weight and unable to loose weight even though I was working out regularly and following a diet, among other symptoms that just became a norm in my life. In just 2 months of treatment at the AIMS Clinic, I am less irritable; I no longer wake up congested and I no longer feel bloated.  And the best part of all is that I have not had another yeast infection. I am feeling much more confident about myself and I am feeling healthier all around.” – M.G.
