The Candida Epidemic

Updated on October 23, 2008

What is Candidias Albicans

Short Video Explaining Candida and its Effect

Candida Albicans

First identified in the 1950's, it is estimated that over 85% of the American population has an overgrowth of Candida that is raging out of control.

It is surprising that most people think Candida afflicts mainly women as a "yeast infection". Candida infectts people of all ages including infants, adolescents, and adults, both male and female, yet the symptoms manifest in many ways not only as a "yeast infection".

People that suffers from Candida, rarely attribute their symptoms to this serious condition that is now considered an epidemic.

Although Candida and other fungus are present in the intestines of healthy individuals it not only cause problems, but Candida can change into a fungal form and pass from the intestine and invade the entire body, therefore producing a variety of devastating and persistent symptoms. This makes it a perplexing condition often overlooked in diagnosis. Often, it can be a very deep-seated, pervasive soft tissue infection which can affect virtually every organ and muscle tissue in men, women, children and even babies.

What You Should Know!!!!

The Candida Invasion

Authorities state that the greatest contributors to the overgrowth of Candida is the extended use of antibiotics, stress, poor diet, alcohol, steroids, and well as a suppressed immune system. Antibiotics can produce an imbalance in the intestinal tract by killing the "good" bacteria and leaving an overabundance of Candida cells. The Candida cells proliferate in the gut, then penetrate the intestinal wall, and then are carried by the circulatory system throughout the entire body and infect organas well muscle tissue.

The Candida invasion can cripple the immune system so that it can no longer repel invaders. It can create allergies to chemicals, pollens smoke, perfumes, foods and much more. Also, it is believed that toxins from the Candida cells develop an antigen/anti-body reaction. This can cause even more allergic reactions.

Immuno-deficient conditions, such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Diabetes, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Psoriasis all lend themselves to making the individual susceptible to Candidiasis.

Candida and Autism

Candida has been attributed to Autism my many specialist in the field. Also Vacines have been attributed to Autism. I will be adding much more to this article as time permits, but here is a video about Vaccines and what they are doing to us. It is believed that Vaccines have been loaded with such things as CANCER, AIDS AND MORE. CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO!! This was taken off of Dr. Mercola's website. This is not a very good video but has some good info.

The Dirty Secret Behind Vaccines

The Dirty Little Secrets About Vaccines

This is a video from Dr. Mercola's site about Merck and the vaccines that were developed there years ago. This is not a very great video, but is very scary at the same time. Autism is said to be linked to vaccines. Watch this video and hold on to your seat. As I said it is pretty scary if it is all true.

Autism and Candida

Autism is growing in links and bounds. It is stated that 1 in every 150 children is inflicted with some level of Autism. Many doctors beleive that Austim is linked to vaccines and Candida overgrowth. Here are some great links to Autism and Candida. This is another growing epidemic that has grown in leaps and bounds in the last decade.

I have battled Candida for years and really did not know what was wrong with me. It started way back in my teens. After years of struggling to control the overgrowth, I finally found many things that help with my problem. I suffered with vaginal yeast infection for years, plus nurmerous episodes of bladder infections. I also had various other problems that attribute to Candida. Below are links to things that helped me with my long battle with Candida.

      I thought this was crazy enough, but then you had to go and talk about vaccinations - VACCINES DO NOT CAUSE AUTISM. Continuing to claim so shows not only a blatant disregard for scientific fact - but is actively dangerous. I refer you to this comic

      Thanks for such an interesting article. I'm shocked that 85% of Americans have this. Can I ask where you found this statistic as I would like to quote you?

      About three years ago I was having cronic sinus infections. A friend suggested that I may have candidas. I had never heard of it before and began doing research. I started the diet and my sinus infections when away completely. I went off the diet about six months after I started it (never to have had a sinus infection since). Between then and now my life has been stressful to say the least. Most recently, I have gotten athletes foot on my calf. To my surprise when I started looking up natural remedies, I came across the link between athlets foot fungus and CANDIDA! I swear I will never go off this diet again. Thanks for the new recipes, I fall victim to feeling like there is not a whole lot to eat on this diet, but this time around I've felt less that way with all the great recipes I've been able to find on sites like yours and others! THANK YOU!!!!!

      One other thing. The Aqua Flora product, which states it is homeopathic, is actually 'isopathic' - meaning that it is giving the SAME energy source to heal the candida, rather than a "SIMILAR" energy source. Debby, CHOM
