Candida Albicans, How Bad Is It?
(Right from the horses mouth, and it gets a little technical)
Candida albicans is a diploid fungus that grows both as yeast and filamentous cells and a causal agent of opportunistic oral and genital infections in humans. Systemic fungal infections (fungemias) including those by Candida albicans have emerged as important causes of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients (e.g., AIDS, cancer chemotherapy, organ or bone marrow transplantation). Candida albicans biofilms may form on the surface of implantable medical devices. In addition, hospital-acquired infections by Candida albicans have become a cause of major health concerns. Candida albicans is commensal and a constituent of the normal gut flora comprising microorganisms that live in the human mouth and gastrointestinal tract. C. albicans lives in 80% of the human population!
Now this is crazy, they are admitting in front of the entire world that almost all diseases are coming from a single root source…CANDIDA ALBICANS! Even though they say around 80% of the population has this culture living in them, with around 25% of the population in safe populations of the cultures inside their intestines, I believe this to be FALSE! If you have seen the people that I have and even done a slight amount of research you would see this number to be in the ranges of 93%-97% of the population having Candida Albicans in excessive amounts! I have even seen people with small waists/hips/stomachs/etc and after doing a Candida albicans flush, they immediately had more energy, their skin lightened up, no more breakouts, and allergies were even relieved in some cases. This is truly an amazing thing to discover.
Yeah, But I Don’t Need A Candida Albicans Cleanse!
Not only have I (with 8% BF) done Candida cleanses to help my energy levels, but also many other friends/weight lifters/athletes/etc who you would think have no need for these changes…WRONG! These things feed the most oft from the food fed to us as Americans. Sugars, Grains, Milk, Meats. WOW! How many people did I hit home with that one? Now don’t get me wrong, grains are good and I still eat them. But as far as milk, well, if you don’t know the truth about milk, you should see my other posts on it. This drink is natural and healthy to growing babies and even weaning ones; however, after homogenization and pasteurization, all the nutrients are deformed and mutated, causing unknown side-effects. Meat is killed and butchered in a way that PROMOTES adrenaline being released into the body (this is poisonous to humans), and the only TRUE way to eat meat is KOSHER. Not because it’s been blessed, but because the way the animal is humanely killed, never allowed to release testosterone or adrenaline into the bloodstream. Sugars LITERALLY have no nutritional value whatsoever, no if’s and’s or but’s about that fact. The grains, sadly they do help feed Candida Albicans because these parasites are a YEAST. Therefore any bread is going to promote the growth of these parasites!
So How Do I Find Out If I Have Candida Albicans?
Currently, diagnosis is primarily clinical. Since almost everyone has candida in their bodies, tests for its presence are useless; confirmation of overgrowth is very difficult through laboratory tests. And, since what it does is to paralyze the immune system against it, allergy tests to determine the system’s reaction to it are also ineffectual. Furthermore, the results of the yeast imbalance — the combined effects of different hormones, poisons generated and released by the yeast into the bloodstream, and the confusion created in the immune system — produces such a wide variety of symptoms and which are seemingly so unrelated (such as wheezing, depression and fungus infection under fingernails) that a definite diagnosis cannot be made from any specific pattern of signs and symptoms.
Currently, the best test still seems to be the therapeutic trial . A joint decision is usually made by the physician with the help of the patient after analyzing the individual’s case history. (Many physicians regard vaginal yeast infections as the most reliable indicator in women of candida overgrowth, for example). A tentative diagnosis is made based on the patient’s history of symptoms in relation to any known possible predisposing factors, which is then proven true or false by the way the patient responds to the therapy. Many physicians now believe that a clinical trial for candida overgrowth is of so little risk and expense that it should be considered in any chronic illness. One clinical trial a person may try is to avoid certain foods for five days which are known to facilitate the growth of yeast. Such foods include the following:
- SUGAR and SIMPLE CARBOHYDRATES such as found in all sweetened food including the use of honey, molasses, sorghum, maple syrup, sugar, fructose, maltose, dextrose, corn syrup, etc.
- YEAST PRODUCTS such as beer, wine, yeast leavened bread, natural B vitamins, brewer’s yeast
- FERMENTED and MOLD FOODS such as mushrooms, cheese, vinegar, mustard, catsup, relish and other condiments made with vinegar.
After avoiding these foods for 5 days, try adding them back into the diet in large quantities. By observing how one feels while off these foods, in comparison to any adverse affects experienced when going back on the foods, one may get a clue as to any possible yeast involvement as a causative factor for any adverse symptoms.
HOW DO I GET RID OF IT?
The best thing I can suggest is a diet and Candida Cleanse solution. These solutions are cured for 30-45 days and a single jar can help a person lose anywhere from 4-5 Lbs. from simply drinking the 23 doses contained inside. The Candida Albicans are one of the toughest things to get rid of from the body. Since over 90% of babies test positive for Candida Albicans 6 months after birth, the battle feels like a permanent friendship (some would say Candida Albicans are “NATURAL”) but this is such a false case!
