There are several yeast organisms called Candida, which are a type of fungus, which can live in the human body. The most common is Candida albicans.

Category: Candida

Not really. It’s naturally occurring in the human body. It’s only a problem if our balance of good bacteria gets disturbed, usually through taking medication such as antibiotics, hormone drugs or steroids.

Under normal circumstances, the good bacteria secrete substances that keep things like Candida under control. But if they are disturbed or out of balance, Candida can multiply unchecked and cause problems.

Category: Candida

Most people have small amounts in the mouth, vagina, the gut and on the skin, but if it starts to grow out of control it can grow anywhere in the body. For instance, it can grow in the bloodstream or internal organs like the kidney, heart, or brain and cause severe problems.

Category: Candida

The list of possible symptoms can include:

  • Feeling tired, worn down or suffering from chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia
  • In men, a red rash, itching and burning on the penis
  • In women, vaginal itching, soreness, and redness; a white, clumpy discharge from the vagina; and painful or uncomfortable intercourse
  • Difficulty concentrating, poor memory, lack of focus, ADD, ADHD, and brain fog
  • Severe seasonal allergies
  • Strong sugar and carbohydrate cravings
  • Irritability, mood swings, anxiety or depression
  • Digestive issues including bloating, constipation or diarrhoea
  • White coat on the tongue, redness or discomfort in the mouth, sore throat, difficulty swallowing or cracking at the corners of the mouth
  • Skin and nail fungal infections which include athlete’s foot or toenail fungus

Category: Candida

It likes warm, moist conditions and feeds on sugar. It can cause problems in folds of skin, under breasts, the groin area etc. Diabetics are particularly susceptible to Candida overgrowth due to the high levels of sugar in their blood, so tightly controlling blood sugar can make a huge difference. Pregnancy makes women more prone to Candida overgrowth due to changes in hormones. People with compromised immune systems are also at risk of problems due to Candida overgrowth.

Category: Candida

It probably won’t go away on its own. You can take action to get it back under control. You will need to make some changes to your diet (restricting sugar and carbohydrate intake), keep your skin clean and dry, take some beneficial bacteria (we have some great choices at Wild Oats) and take some antifungal supplements (Garlic, Oregano, Olive leaf, Cinnamon).

Category: Candida

After you start taking action to reduce Candida levels, you may experience a temporary worsening of symptoms. It’s important to begin slowly and make sure you drink enough water and eat well during this period. Don’t allow yourself to get constipated, you want those dead organisms to pass out of you as soon as possible!

Category: Candida

If you suspect you have a Candida overgrowth and it’s causing you problems, it’s very important to see your doctor to rule out serious infection as Candida can lead to sepsis.
