What is candida? Candida is short for Candida Albicans, a yeast microorganism that lives in your intestinal tract. About 80% of the human population has candida living inside their intestinal tracts and sometimes this microorganism can cause dangerous infections. Candida lives in your bowel along with other microorganisms and helpful bacteria called probiotics. In a healthy person, the bacteria to yeast ratio are about 10:1. When the bacteria to yeast ratio become imbalanced, candida overgrowth occurs. The candida microorganism soon overwhelms the helpful bacteria (probiotics) and causes yeast infection.
Yeast (candida) overgrowth (also known as Candidiasis) is not caused by an external source and can be cured using medications. Candidiasis is usually the result of environmental, dietary, and emotional influences and living habits. These influences reduce the level of your body’s biological functionality and causes yeast microorganisms to multiply rapidly. When the yeast microorganisms run out of space to multiply, then mutate into pathogenic forms and become harmful to your health. When they mutate into fungal forms, they develop elongated roots that penetrate the intestinal lining. After they penetrate, they enter your blood and colonize the tissues throughout your body. These fungal microorganisms produce toxins that cause the symptoms of candida infection.
Genital candidiasis is a very common condition experienced about 75% of women around the world. Genital candidiasis is also known as vaginal yeast infection, monilial infection, monilial vaginitis, candidal vaginitis, and vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC). Candida overgrowth causes an allergic reaction that produces the symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection.
The common symptoms of candida are:
If candida infects the bloodstream, it can affect the body’s organs such as eyes, lungs, heart, and kidneys. It can cause a shock, rash, anemia, chills, and high fever. If the kidneys are infected, it can cause bloody urine. If the heart is infected, it can cause valve damage and murmurs. If the lungs are infected, it can cause bloody mucus discharge. If the eyes are infected, it can cause blurred vision and pain. If the brain is infected, it can cause seizures and changes in mental behavior or function.
Candida infection usually occurs when the body’s natural defenses against infection and proliferation is disrupted.
