The symptoms of a mild candida overgrowth are easy to dismiss because they’re so general.
If you’ve experienced fatigue, sugar cravings, brain fog (difficulty concentrating and slight confusion, or even a bit “hungover”) or digestive issues, you could have a candida overgrowth.
Unfortunately, a candida overgrowth can affect you in many ways – it interferes with nutrient absorption which means your immune system takes a dip – as does your health.
The liver becomes overworked because of the toxic byproducts candida produce.
It disrupts the production of hormones.
And it causes chronic inflammation which can lead to many diseases, including dementia and even cancer.
The truth is, no you may not know. The yeast infection brought on by an overgrowth of candida albicans can affect your health long before you see the signs of oral thrush – a white film in your mouth.
If you’ve been on antibiotics, are diabetic, eat sugary foods, you’re on the pill, been exposed to chemicals or have recently taken a knock to your immune system – there is a good chance you could have a candida overgrowth.
The first thing you need to do to is ditch the sugar. Candida feeds on sugar so when you eat sugar you’re feeding the beast.
Also take a probiotic. And because you’re not absorbing nutrients from your food properly, you need to take a multivitamin and a magnesium supplement.
Drink lots of water – and find out below which natural substance could help you get rid of a candida overgrowth.
