What Is Candida? | Stomach Problems

August 15, 2019

Candida’s actually a fungal infection and
it’s fairly common. It most commonly affects the skin or vaginal
flora or in the mouth or nails. It usually can be treated quite well with
an anti-fungal agent. In cases of systemic infections which happens
in people who are immunocompromised whether they’re Cancer patients or HIV or AIDS patients
they need a systemic anti-fungal agent to help clear up the infection. There has been some discussion or some controversy
whether Candida affects the digestive track and if it may cause some digestive complaints. It can infect the esophagus, in which case
you have problems swallowing or painful swallowing. Again that happens in patients that have some
sort of immunocompromised state. There has been some discussion that it causes
some GI discomfort or joint pains or some sort of systemic infection. But it’s still debatable and it’s questionable
if it does contribute to those systems as well.

    If you've ever attempted to cure your Candida by one-dimensional solution like antibiotics, pills, creams, anti-fungal or even detoxing diets without success. It is probably because you have tackled just one part of the disease.
