When Candida Comes Back

Here's What You Can Do...

Pamela Levin, R.N., T.S.T.A., 1/28/11

It can be hard enough to get rid of Candida - that nasty fungal infection that causes so many symptoms and so many problems.

You can imagine the frustration of making the effort to get rid of it, thinking you've succeeded, and then finding out it's back again. Is it ever possible to truly get rid of it?

Absolutely, yes.  The key to it lies in taking this next step. Here's a likely scenario about what's going on. Get this handled, and your likelihood of having a recurrent yeast infection goes way down.

Your intestinal tract is a long tube that runs from one end of your body to the other. In the part of it called your colon, yeast are a normal part of the flora. In other words, it's one of the naturally occuring living 'bugs' that populate your colon.

Meanwhile, the intestinal tube itself is composed of many many tiny cells. The space between these cells is extremeley  small - often thought to be only one micron. This minute space acts as a barrier that does not allow live intestinal residents such as yeast to go across.

However, when you eat a food that you can't digest completely, these incompletely digested particles weaken the barrier. Where before there was only one micron between cells, now there might be a five micron space.

Yeast are infinitesimal; they are only one celled organisms. This five micron space allows the yeast to cross what should be a barrier. Now the yeast find themselves in a warm, wet, moist, nutrient rich environment with no competition from other bugs.

In short, it's party time for the yeast. They multiply like there's no tomorrow.
And if that environment is also estrogen rich, they multiply even more (because estrogen orders cells to 'grow'.)

The solution to this scenario is to stop eating foods you can't completely digest. Of course, these can vary from individual to individual, but that said, one of the most common culprits is wheat. Many people have been able to end the cycle of recurring yeast infections by eliminating wheat from their diet. A smaller, but still significant number also need to eliminate all gluten.
