Struggling with Candida Albicans?
Don’t underestimate this infection…
Candidiasis or Candida Albicans is a nasty yeast infection and its sole purpose is to dominate your Digestive Tract, sometimes with dire results. Between 60 to 70% of people who are infected with H. pylori, also have Candida Albicans overgrowth, and most of them don’t even know it!
What is Candida Albicans?
We all live in a virtual sea of micro-organisms, (bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc.). These microbes are as much a part of our bodies as the food we eat. Usually, these micro-organisms do not cause illness, unless our resistance becomes lower.
Candida Albicans is a yeast that lives in the mouth, throat, intestines, and genitourinary tract of most of us and is usually considered to be a normal part of the bowel flora (the organisms that coexist with us in our lower digestive tract). Candida is also classified as a fungi.
NOTE: The symptoms of Candida Albicans are very similar to the symptoms of other GI Tract disorders and can easily be mistaken for the symptoms of stomach ulcers and H.pylori infection.
How do you get it?
Candida Albicans enters our bodies as infants during or shortly after we are born. Usually, the growth of the yeast is kept in check by our immune system, but should your immune response weaken, the condition known as oral thrush can occur as a result.
By 6 months of age, 90% of all babies test positive for Candida. And by adulthood, virtually all of us play host to Candida Albicans and are thus engaged in a life-long relationship.
Candida coexists in our bodies with many species of bacteria in a competitive balance. Other bacteria act in part to keep Candida growth in check in our body ecology – unless that balance is upset.
When you enjoy good health, your immune system keeps Candida proliferation under control; but when your immune response is weakened, Candida growth can proceed unhindered.
Candida is an “opportunistic organism” – BEWARE if it gets out of control!
“The rapid and direct proliferation of the yeast following antibiotic use strongly suggests that the problem of Candida is one which stems from an inner state of imbalance, rather than from an outside attack by a microbe or disease.”
Why Antibiotics cause Candida Overgrowth
High-dose antibiotic treatments like Triple therapy for H. pylori infections are known to contribute to the overgrowth of Candida albicans. Here’s why:
- Disruption of Microbial Balance: Antibiotics are designed to kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria, including the beneficial ones that help maintain a healthy balance in the body. When these beneficial bacteria are reduced, it creates an opportunity for Candida to proliferate.
- Altered pH Levels: The normal pH balance in various parts of the body, such as the gut and vagina, is maintained by a diverse microbial community. Antibiotics can disrupt this balance, creating a more favorable environment for the growth of Candida.
- Immune System Impact: Antibiotics may also affect the immune system, weakening its ability to keep Candida in check. A compromised immune system is less effective at controlling the overgrowth of opportunistic pathogens like Candida.
- Selective Killing of Bacteria: Antibiotics are often specific to certain types of bacteria. While they target the harmful bacteria causing an infection, they may also reduce the populations of beneficial bacteria that help control Candida.
- Resistant Strains: In some cases, antibiotic use can lead to the development of antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. While the targeted bacteria may become resistant, Candida and other opportunistic microbes may not be affected, leading to imbalances.
It’s important to note that while most people who take antibiotics will experience Candida overgrowth not everyone will. The risk of this varies among individuals.
