Candida Overgrowth and Candida Symptoms

Updated on May 12, 2015

Candida or not?!

Well, we ALL have candida in us and it is helpful - in its naturally allocated amount.

When candida becomes a problem is when candida becomes a candida overgrowth - So yes, you do have candida, but do you have a candida overgrowth?

I am going to run through a few of the well known symptoms and I will also be listing some of the symptoms I have felt. As you must know, there are a whole range of symptoms that can be triggered by a candida over growth or/and a yeast overgrowth.

Before listing symptoms, you could try a few things initially to see if you have a candida overgrowth or yeast overgrowth, they are:

Try the Candida Spit Test - This is performed first thing in the morning with no messing about before hand and provides a very good guide to answer your question.

One of the main uses of candida is a little hard to accept and it is a rather strange one when you think about it a little bit. One of the main reasons we have candida within us is so that when we die, we breakdown, or rot quicker. So if you have a candida overgrowth your body is fighting/succumbing to this. Of course, this sounds like something from the x-files but it is true.

Of course, it is a strange thing for the body to do - think about breaking itself down.. For what and for who? Anyway..

All of this is a natural process, if "you" have vacated.

The Symptoms

The following symptoms suggests you might have a candida overgrowth:

  • Fatigue, headache, depression, irritability, disorientation, dizziness, inability to concentrate, poor memory, lack of focus, ADD, ADHD.
  • Skin and nail fungal infections (such as athlete‚Äôs foot or toenail fungus).

Here are some of the most common reason someone can get a candida overgrowth:

  • Consuming a lot of alcohol.
