This article is about Candidiasis, Candida, Candida Albicans, beneficial bacteria and aims to detect Candida symptoms and hopefully presents Candidiasis cure.
I’m baffled when I see how easily people take antibiotics for any minor illness. I’m even more baffled when I see the family doctors how prescribe antibiotics for a simple sore throat. Not to mention that for a few blackheads on your face dermatologists stuff you with antibiotics for about a month… given that most seasonal colds are caused by viruses and NOT bacteria. Don’t forget to also read: How do you know if you suffer from Candidiasis?
In today’s article you will find out about: The link between antibiotics and candidiasis and The link between candidiasis and other diseases.
What is Candidiasis
Each of us have in the intestines a so-called “gut flora”.
This flora is made up of 100 trillion (= 1 million of billions) microscopic organisms that live in the gut and weigh between 1.5 and 2.5 kg in our weight.
Although most are found in our intestines, they are spread throughout the human body: on the entire surface of the skin. Unlike men, women have these bacteria in large amounts in the vagina.
In a healthy man this flora is composed of 85% good bacteria or probiotic (fermentation flora) and 15% of pathogenic organisms (putrefaction flora). From the organisms of putrefaction flora (with pathogenic organisms), the most common is a species of fungus called Candida albicans.
What is the role of beneficial bacteria?
1. It creates a barrier to prevent pathogenic organisms or incomplete digested foods from the intestines to enter into blood.
2. To provide immunity for the organism: they are the basic pillar of the immunity.
3. To improve absorption of nutrients.
4. To synthesize some vitamins: B complex and vitamin K.
5. To keep under control the flora of putrefaction flora (harmful).
The last point (5) is the most important:
Flora of putrefaction (with harmful organisms from which it’s formed) is NATURALLY found in the human body. Neither harmful bacteria or fungi (Candida), and any other germs DO NOT harm the body, as long there are enough (85%) good bacteria (probiotics) to keep them under control.
When the balance 85% – 15% of the intestinal flora is broken, putrefaction flora comes to take control of the intestines, in particular by the fungus Candida Albicans – that have the capacity to grow and expand very quickly when out of good bacteria control. Not only the fungus will expand, but will not leave any good bacteria to develop. There will be increasingly more harmful organisms, and increasingly fewer good bacteria. From here until the bloating, allergies, intestinal parasites, food intolerances and finally cancer, there is one small step.
Don’t forget to also read: What diseases cause the imbalance of intestinal flora?
Thus, a person who comes to have a Candida albicans out of control, is a person infected with this fungus, ie a person suffering from CANDIDIASIS. So, Candidiasis is a disease that occurs when the fungus Candida albicans invades the gut at the expense of good bacteria.
Of course, this imbalance will affect the balance of bacteria throughout the body, including good bacteria from the skin (which provides immunity of the skin) and those in the vagina (resulting in a so-called “vaginal candidiasis”).
Who destroys good bacteria?
In summary: Intestinal flora imbalance is due to our modern/artificial lifestyle, diets way too rich in refined sugars and overused medication and last but not least imbalances that we humans have created in the environment . However there are a number factors that have a devastating effect on the intestinal flora – and thus on health. The good thing is that once you know how to avoid these factors, you are half-saved.
What are the main factors that kill beneficial bacteria and how they affect health?
Antibiotics are the leading cause of candidiasis.
The antibiotics massively kill good bacteria from the gut and so prepare a fertile ground for the growth of Candida albicans fungus, but also for other types of harmful organisms (Yersinia enterocolitica, Staphylococcus aureus, infections with Campylobacter, Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli, Clostridium botulinum, Clostridium perfringens and Bacillus cereus).
As a result the balance of good/bad organisms in the gut (85% -15%) breaks down and sometimes even reach the stage where this ratio is reversed.
Different allergies and infections occur because the barrier formed by beneficial bacteria, which serve to protect the body from harmful organisms and incomplete digested food in the gut, has just been destroyed. Therefore incomplete digested nutrients, harmful bacteria and Candida albicans fungus enter the bloodstream, which spread throughout the body and lead inevitably to illness.
Bloating and malnutrition occurs because the body’s ability to effectively absorb nutrients was provided by good bacteria. And last but not least, because the beneficial flora which laid the foundation for immunity was destroyed, the immune system simply collapses.
At this stage the body is “off guard” against viruses, harmful bacteria, intestinal parasites and especially fungus.
Sugar is the main source of food for the Candida albicans fungus.
Immediately after the fungus is out of control, there is a strong and unjustified sugar craving (sweets/fruits/cakes/sugar etc.), Because it needs resources to survive, grow and expand throughout the body.
Once the fungus is out of the gut, it attacks the other organs and finally producing a TUMOR – as demonstrated by Dr. Tullio Simoncini in the book: Cancer is a Fungus.
So when you have candidiasis is essential not to eat any sugar (carbohydrates) especially refined sugar (kitchen sugar), but neither complex carbohydrates from cereals or bread, not even from fruits.
After digestion, the alcohol is converted into sugar – which feeds the Candida fungus. Besides, the alcohol is toxic to humans, more so for a person with unbalanced intestinal flora and a ruined immunity.
Moreover, Candida albicans produces itself 79 alcohol-containing mycotoxins, so a person suffering from candidiasis may feel drunk/dizzy/hangover even if that person didn’t consumed alcohol.
As you can see, the infection with Candida involves a daily struggle of the body with a series of toxic substances. That’s why infected people often suffer from chronic fatigue, low energy, prolonged drowsiness, lack of vitality. It happens because the body is simply overloaded with toxins bombardment.
And last but not least, the alcohol massively kills beneficial bacteria (probiotics).
4. Insulin resistance
Is the inability of sugar (glucose) to enter blood cells – the stage before illness is type 2 diabetes. Insulin is designed to help sugar to enter cells, but in the case of this condition cells refuse to respond to insulin, so refuse to receive sugar from blood. Sugar remains in the blood and thus creates a fertile environment for the expansion of Candida albicans in the body.
How the insulin resistance occurs?
It occurs after excessive consumption of sugar and unhealthy fats (trans-) during several years. Constantly consuming sugar, the pancreas will constantly release insulin in the blood, and cells, being always exposed to insulin, will develop insulin resistance.
So how is insulin resistance treated? Without sugar.
5. Birth control drugs
It has been demonstrated that hormones (especially estrogen) found in birth control pills cause a significant rise of the sugar level in blood, creating a perfect environment for the development of the fungus Candida (which can’t wait to get a cup of sugar).
6. Other foods/habits that kill beneficial bacteria:
– Active and passive smoking: cigarette smoke kills beneficial bacteria. Studies show that those who quit smoking in the following period present a significant increase in beneficial bacteria, but also a decrease of pathogenic organisms from the intestines.
– Pesticides and insecticides are poisons for both pests that attack plants, as well as the beneficial bacteria in our intestines.
– Constipation: foods that remain too long in the body enter into putrefaction, and thus create a favorable environment for the development of putrefaction flora (including the fungus Candida albicans).
– Intestinal parasites destroy (eat) the beneficial bacteria and thus create an imbalance of intestinal flora.
– Mold and damp: the mold that appears on walls is also a species of fungi (fungus) that is multiplied by the spores that it spreads in the air. When we are in places with mold, we breath in this spores. Studies show that these have an effect on health increase very similar to that of antibiotics.
– Mercury is found in the “black fillings” (the mixture), in ocean fish and vaccines. Kills the beneficial bacteria.
– Anabolic Steroids unbalance the body’s hormonal balance and increase the blood sugar levels favoring the development of Candida.
– Stress: candidiasis has also a very powerful effect on mental and emotional state. That’s why people with candidiasis are also suffering from depressions, chronic stress, emotional instability, continuous state of tension, etc. On the other hand is very benefic in the treatment of candidiasis, that the sick person is constantly trying to be in a good mood and have a positive emotional state to speed up the healing process.
– Tap water: the chlorine put to kill harmful bacteria that may be in water, however kill our good bacteria.
– Processed foods are full of (harmful E numbers) artificial flavors, preservatives, emulsifiers, etc. All this disrupts the balance of organisms in the gut.
