Candida Thrush - America's New Epidemic

Yeast is not just for baking bread or brewing beer; rather yeast, and specifically Candida, more commonly known as thrush, is an organism that lives within most living creatures and helps them function properly. We will be discusing Candida and how it effects humans and our health. These small amounts of Candida yeast are located in the stomach, intestine and colon and typically are unnoticable.  However, when the body is compromised, there is the potential for thrush to overgrow and cause some serious health problems in many individuals. Some people turn to the candida spit test to see if they have this over growth. This is an inaccurate test and should only be preformed by a doctor.

 

Candida Yeast Overgrowth

If you’ve ever heard of the common conditions of women’s yeast infections and babies’ diaper rashes, you are familiar with the basic premise of candida yeast overgrowth. Excess development of thrush can be caused by a variety of different health factors;for example, because yeast thrives in warm and wet environments, any skin exposed to these environmental conditions, specifically porous skin, will be prone to developing some form of infection because of yeast. Candida overgrowth can also be caused by not maintaining your daily health; with an immune system compromised by lack of sleep or a poor diet consisting mostly of sugars, Candida is able to fester and grow in ideal conditions. This means that preventing thrush overgrowth is as simple as getting enough sleep at night and eating a balanced diet , one with as little of sugar as you can. This includes breads, pasta and other foods that turn to sugar in your stomach.

 

Mystery Illness Link To Candida

While these infections may be minor, thrush is also considered to have far more dangerous effects on the body that must be considered when we discuss its place in western medical studies.  Recently, studies have shown that high levels of candida in the body are also linked with chronic fatigue disorders.  This is because Candida is a yeast that normally develops in small amounts in the color, which helps metabolize foods and process them into energy to be distributed throughout the body.  When the colon is clogged with lots of yeast, it is unable to perform optimally, and these effects manifest themselves physically by making your body tired and sluggish.  Despite these links, western medicine is still unsure about whether to attribute chronic fatigue solely to candida overgrowth and are rather looking for another way of explaining fatigue.

 

America's New Epidemic

While yeast overgrowth may not sound serious at first, it is indeed something that everyone should be aware of in order to maintain an optimum level of health. If you think that your fatigue may be caused by candida or thrush overgrowth, it is ideal to talk to a doctor as soon as possible to see what changes you can make to your daily life to remedy these effects.  While these conditions may seem chronic, they are perfectly treatable and possibly curable with the right daily changes. It is best to seek the advise of a doctor or physician that is knowledgeable of this condition. Could this be "America's New Epidemic" that most of us know nothing about?
