Candida Infection

Candida is Latin for yeast in the body. Candida is a type of fungus that flourishes in an unhealthy, acidic body. Candida can be found normally in a healthy digestive tract. Unfortunately, Candida grows very rapidly and can overrun the entire body. We commonly hear of Candida infections by women getting yeast infections or children getting thrush. The reality is Candida goes way beyond these two conditions. Candida yeast is opportunistic and it preys and thrives on weakened areas of the body. Candida lives on sugar and thrives in an acidic body. They deposit their waste in our cells and our blood stream, further polluting our body.

What causes Candida yeast overgrowth in the body?

Candida is the result of consuming processed foods, sugars, chlorinated water, caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, heavy metal toxins, and medications like antibiotics, birth control pills, steroids, pain killers, cortisone drugs, vaccinations, etc.

Candida Tests

There is a simple at home test that you can do to see if you suffer from Candida. 85% of Americans have Candida in their bodies. When you wake up in the morning, before you eat or drink anything, produce saliva and spit into a clear glass of water. Within 1-30 minutes if there are little strings coming down from your saliva, if the water turns cloudy, or if your saliva sinks to the bottom-you have Candida. Healthy saliva will simply float on the top. There are many different Candida cleanses on the market. Unfortunately most are a complete waste of money.
