Candida Albicans: What Is It and The Many Health Issues It Presents

Candida Albicans is a fungus, in the yeast family, that can grow uncontrollably in or on your body. We all have some level of candida in our bodies, but occasionally, the conditions are just right to allow for the uncontrollable “overgrowth” of the fungus resulting in what is referred to as a “yeast” infection. Occasionally, our good bacteria can’t contain the candida which then “overgrows”, causing the infection that we know as Candida Albicans, Candida, Thrush, Candidiasis or Yeast Infection.

Factors that may trigger this uncontrollable overgrowth can be as simple as one or more courses of antibiotics, an unhealthy diet of only simple carbohydrates and sugar, or something as common as a period of unrelieved stress at work, home or school.

Triggers that cause or allow Candida overgrowth include a lowered immune system, treatments with antibiotics and some steroids, hormonal changes, especially pregnancy, diabetes, an unhealthy unbalanced diet, oral contraceptives and wearing of damp, sweaty clothing close to the skin. Obese patients are more susceptible to Candida Albicans in the folds of their skin as the area remains dark and damp.

Candida Albicans physical symptoms vary, dependent on where they occur on your body. The earlier that your Candida Albicans is diagnosed, the better your chances of a cure, but the longer you leave the infection untreated, the deeper the infection will become and the harder to cure.

Candida Albicans symptoms include:

  • Itching or Burning Sensation In Your “Private” Parts
  • Vaginal Odor Or Vaginal Discharge
  • Leaky Gut Syndrome
  • Painful Urination or Other Urinary Disorders
  • Painful Intercourse
  • Sexual Dysfunction or Impotence
  • Depression or Mood Swings
  • Chronic Body Rashes
  • Constant Tiredness or Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Joint Pain or Swelling
  • Short Attention Span and Inability To Focus
  • Headaches or Constant Migraines
  • Constipation
  • Lack of Energy
  • Acne or Rosacea
  • Increased Respiratory Infections
  • Bloating or IBS
  • Hypoglycemia
  • PMS and Menstrual Pain
  • Skin Lesions

  • Increased Craving For Sugars and Simple Carbs
  • Eczema
  • Blurred Vision Or Brain Fog
  • Oral Yeast Infection (Oral Thrush)

Candida Albicans Treatments are most often prescription and over-the-counter topically applied creams, lotions, and liquid antifungals. Most often, symptoms return once the medications are gone, as the drugs fight the symptoms and not the root cause, and Candida Albicans can develop a resistance to those drugs.
