What is Candida?





digestive systemCandida albicans is a fungus that is normally found on the skin and mucous membranes in the mouth, rectum, or vagina. It may also travel through the blood stream and affect various parts of the body. If the fungus is not controlled, problems may occur.Basically, the Candida Albicans is a negative yeast infection that begins in the digestive system and as time goes by it spreads to the other parts of the body. It acts as an invading parasite that attaches to the intestinal wall and makes home of your internal organs, which makes the body react and create the many symptoms.

It also interferes with digestion and the body'fs absorption of nutrients. Many people waste away, the majority being elderly, cancer and AIDS victims. The nutrients that they consumed are not absorbed as they should. It can even be sexually transmitted.

There are many symptoms of the candida albicans fungus. A person may experience some or all of the symptoms, depending on how severe the outbreak becomes. These symptoms include:

* constant fatigue
* sinus problems / lots of mucus
* interrupted sleep
* joint pains
* flu like symptoms
* tight neck and shoulder
* increased headaches

The symptoms listed above are the most common of the symptoms. They can range from being very mild to severe.

There is testing that can be done to see if a person is affected with Candida Albicans, and there is treatment to this problem. Knowledge of medical history, a physical exam, and laboratory tests (blood tests, blood cultures, and wound cultures), can help in the diagnosis of this fungus. With a diagnosis of Candidia Albicans, it is important to consider whether there is an underlying condition causing Candidia Albicans. These are other medical conditions that may possibly cause Candidia Albicans. In all cases, it is extremely important to fix the underlying condition that caused the outbreak.

If you think that you could have this, don'ft take it lightly. This condition can be a serious threat to your health and life.
