Candida is the popular term for candidiasis (candida overgrowth) – a condition first identified by American physicians in the 1970’s. Moderate amounts of candida live in every one of us without causing any harm, but when given free rein to grow unchecked, e.g. by wiping out the surrounding bacteria with broad-spectrum antibiotics, Candida can change into its fungal form and spore through the intestinal wall into the rest of the body. Once through, it rampages around the body producing a multitude of symptoms. Yeasts are opportunistic organisms. They are unable to create infection in normal healthy individuals, held in check by beneficial bacteria of the gastro-intestinal and genitourinary tracts. When the internal terrain becomes compromised however, Candida organisms are able to rapidly proliferate and colonize the mucous membranes of the oral cavity, gastro-intestinal tract and vagina, as well as grow in moist areas the skin.
Diets high in sugar and processed foods laden with antibiotics and growth hormones leave the body lacking the nutrients it requires for adequate digestion and immunity, while feeding yeast and other pathogenic organisms. Repeated exposure to antibiotics, birth control pills, hormone replacement drugs, heavy metals, environmental chemicals, stress and other xenobiotics further disrupts the internal terrain and weakens the body’s defences, making one more susceptible to yeast overgrowth. However, the presence of Candida is not a failure of defence, but a failure of internal regulation.
