Do You Have A Candida Problem?

Updated on April 20, 2012

Chances are, If you are reading this then you have some sort of clue what Candida is. If you don't, It is a yeast that lives in the bodies intestinal track.Candida, while naturally found in the body, can actually spread or "over grow" and move threw out the body cause havoc! The symptoms that it causes can often even appear as a deadly disease! You may find yourself, like me, going to doctor after doctor and them scratching their heads saying "Your fine!" when you know your not! Most doctors wont even test for it! Here's a few common symptoms...

frequent headaches - constipation - diarrhea - nausea - ulcers - weight gain - weight loss - yeast infections (vaginal) - white coating on the tongue - arthritis like pain - abnormal periods - low sex drive - hair loss - nervousness - depression - lack of energy - lack of concentration - ADD - flu like symptoms - brittle nails - insomnia - food cravings (mostly sugar, carbs and alcohol) - AND MANY MORE!

My symptoms are... Headaches, horrible neck pain, shoulder stiffness, muscle twitching or body tremors, nervousness, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, dizziness, nausea, itchy skin, white coating on the tongue, loss of memory, poor concentration, very low energy, weight gain, water retention, abnormal periods, constipation, itchy ears, hair loss, sour stomach, sensitivity to weather changes, blurred vision, rock like knots in my back, knee pain, poor circulation, brittle nails, and more!

Based on my symptoms, keep in mind that I am only 23 years old! Many people will often feel 5, 10, or even 20 years older then they are! But hey! The doctors said I'm fine! Now this may come as a shocker but the MOST COMMON way to get Candida Yeast Over Growth is... ANTIBIOTICS! What they do is kills both good and bad bacteria which destroys your bodies pH balance. Your pH balance is what keeps your yeast under control! Want proof you can blame antibiotics? I was sick with strep throat 2 years ago in April. I went to a doctor and they gave me, not one, but two antibiotics. With in less than 10 DAYS I was in the hospital. I had no idea what was wrong with me. I couldn't breath, I was dizzy, fearful, and could barely walk! They said it was an allergic reaction to one of the MOST overly pushed pills around... Amoxocillian. They said I should be fine in a week. Well, as time went by, my symptoms got worse, I got new ones and drove myself insane thinking I had everything from diabetes to a brain tumor! I became a fear filled crazy person! Then about 2 months ago I found this man on that knew what I was going threw and wanted to help. He taught me about Candida and gave me recommendations and so far the ones I've done have helped A LOT! If your curious, his name is facelessfatloss or Tim, on youtube. Sign up for his program, you wont regret it! Anyway...

I learned about a few things that have helped me greatly! One is MSM, which is sulfur! Its something the body needs for many reasons. It can be found all over but of coarse the best form in organic. I got mine from, the brand is "NOW" and I use both the capsules and the lotion. I've noticed my twitching had gotten much better, my pain has as well, my skin is bright and glowing again, my skin isn't as itchy, my constipation is not as bad, and more! If you decide to buy some, its quite cheap and beneficial even for thows without Candida problems. Keep in mind, the dosage on the bottle is a base to go off of. My bottle says take 2 pills 2 times daily and I am up to 8 pills a day. Your body will tell you when you are taking to much. You will simply be gassy and have stomach cramps and possibly diarrhea. It is almost impossible to overdose yourself and if you do your body will filter it out, no worries!

Another thing I learned about it "High-Fructose Corn Syrup". :Let me start by saying... STAY AWAY FROM THAT CRAP! It is man made, cheap, overly processed, chemically altered, sugar that has no purpose being in our food in the first place! It is POISON! Sadly, you can find it in many things such as bread, ketchup, pasta sauces, deli meats, hot dogs, most sweets, 99% of all soda, fruit juice, and even in some pet food! Why do animals need that BS!? Wake up people! The reason for 95% of diseases and sickness, yes even CANCER, is from the crap you eat and the crap you put on your skin! You know how to get skin cancer? Slap on some overly chemically treated skin care and go in the sun. The stuff will mutate on your skin and in it where the cells live! I go in the sun sometimes for 2 hours at a time and use virgin olive oil! But hey, people seem to be p---- whipped by the media and the doctors.

One last thing I will mention that will actual cure, yes, CURE Candida problems as well as other disease is liquid silver. It's a mineral that is already in our bodies and a portion of it comes from rainwater that goes on our skin and in the food we eat. Due to over processed and over chemically treated foods, we all have nowhere near the amounts we need in our bodies. I will be buying Silver 100 and will tell you about it in another hub after I use it. It is gold in a bottle... Yet its silver, Ha!

Do your research people. God gave us everything we need to live a healthy life. Don't turn to horrible pills that NEVER cure anything. They simply mask the symptoms and make you sicker! Eat as organic as possible and use organic products on your skin. Yes, its more pricey but isn't your body worth it?

      Be very very very careful with the silver, though. People sometimes have irreversible skin damage because of it. It can turn your skin gray & it can't be undone.

      Thanks for your comment Deb! - I agree, probiotics are great for keeping yeast levels under control as well as other intestinal flora.

      Useful - I have had problems like this too. I found a super 8 high potency probiotic - and according to a natural health magazine this is especially for yeast infections. A little expensive and must be kept cold but worth it - for me at least. Other probiotics are also good for the urinary tract. I believe this would additionally help GERD. Good Read.
