Candida Symptoms

How can one health problem cause
so many different symptoms?

It is no wonder why candida symptoms are so diverse and complex, knowing the damage that can be done from a systemic candida infection.

When conditions are right for it to grow out of control, candida albicans has damaging effects on the:

  • digestive system (mouth to anus)
  • circulatory system (heart, blood vessels, blood)
  • respiratory system (nose, trachea, lungs)
  • endocrine system (hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, pancreas and adrenal glands)
  • nervous system (brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves)
  • excretory system (kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra)
  • reproductive system
  • immune system

Many medical doctors are not taught to look for candida albicans in their patients and think it only infects immunocompromised people. Why this is the case is up for debate.

Personally, I think that the drug companies want the information suppressed, because they make a lot of money off of people with candida. Think of all the prescriptions written out for these symptoms.

Of course, you could have some of these symptoms and not have a candida infection. But if you notice you have quite a few of them, you should look into the various tests for candida.
