Candida is ever present in the digestive system but it’s when our healthy and friendly yeast has got out of control and started to fight and disarm good bacteria, then Candida will become an issue. This is bad enough but as a by-product of this gut fermentation, toxins and noxious gases are released. Immune War in fact! Which mirrors in the many and varied symptoms outlined above; this stage is ‘relatively’ straightforward to deal with and is entirely separate, quite literally, to chronic Candida.
Chronic Systemic Candida is the stage where Candida migrates out of the digestive system. It forms root-like growths that are now a fungus and penetrates the intestinal wall and the Candida now enters the bloodstream system and will find it easy to get into deeper tissues and organs (eyes, brain, heart, liver, kidneys etc.) where over time it will become increasingly more entrenched and deep-seated. The toxins given off by the fungus, yeasts and moulds continues, but now these start to overwhelm the entire body. The result is an ever increasing list of symptoms due to the ferocity of the mycelial Candida roots and their ability to infiltrate. As I’ve said, for the purposes of this newsletter, I’m only going to discuss the gut/digestive form of Candida, which is a gut yeast overgrowth.
