Yeast is an opportunistic organism. In a healthy body, Candida Albicans- a type of yeast, naturally reside in the gut, mouth, skin, urinary and vaginal tract. But when the Candida grows out of control and becomes systemic, a slew of symptoms can occur.

Because this yeast lives in so many areas of the body, symptoms can be wide-ranging and contribute to a general feeling of being “sick all over”.  The following information will help you understand the causes and complaints of Candida in Colorado Springs.

Causes of Candida

So what caused the Candida to get out of control? Several things can contribute to this such as antibiotic use, oral contraceptives, heavy metal toxicity, or having certain diseases such as diabetes or liver dysfunction. Diets high in processed foods, sugar, or alcohol are often major factors.

Taking medications to kill off the yeast may work short term but what will keep the yeast from just growing back? Medications strong enough to kill the yeast can also harm the liver and kidneys.

Yeast also has a unique ability to bind up heavy metal toxins. Killing off the yeast with medications might release those toxins back into your system making you even sicker.

Finding the root source of the problem is the only way to ensure that your body can regain optimal health.
