Understanding the Candida Albicans Allergy Connection

What is the correlation between someone’s allergies and the change of getting a candida infection?  Or in other words, is there a candida Albicans allergy connection? And if so, what can be done about it?

Candida is a common form of yeast that populates the gut, and the most common form of candida is candida albacans.  Candida Albicans has two different forms, the relatively benign yeast form, and the more insidious fungal form.

The friendly bacteria in the gut normally keeps candida Albicans in check and reduce the risk of it multiplying and sticking to the walls of the intestines.  This also keeps them from evolving into their fungal form, which is the form that causes the candida symptoms in the body.

The fungal form of candia albicans has tentacles that it uses to pierce the wall of the gut, which can cause what is known as Leaky Gut Syndrome or infections.  In this form it also releases spores, which can get into the blood stream and spread to other organs of the body.

If a person is allergic to a certain food, then they often suffer from bloating, swelling, gas, stomach pains, diarrhea or constipation and one or multiple skin complaints and rashes.  In fact the symptoms can sometimes be quite similar to those of a candida overgrowth initially.

An allergic reaction can allow a number of opportunities for candida Albicans to overgrow.  Normally, the good bacteria in the gut will keep candida in check, but if there is an allergic reaction the friendly bacteria may not work as effectively. Allergies can also cause an imbalance in the gut flora, which may give candida the chance its been waiting for to multiply.

Also, when you have an allergic reaction, the immune system works harder to remove the toxins from the body.  This may therefore allow the candida infection to increase as the immune system is spread too thin and can’t tackle everything.

If the foods that you have a reaction to are eaten infrequently it is unlikely to effect the levels of candida in the body, except if you have an acute reaction to the food.

However, if the foods that you are allergic to form a common part of your diet, then you may be adding additional unnecessary stress to your digestive and immune system, giving the candida an opportunity to grow.

Interestingly, sometimes a person does not know if they are allergic to a specific food or food group.  And this is where a few strategies may help.

Most commonly, the food groups that people are allergic to are wheat and diary products, so these would be a good place to start. 

Grab yourself a diary and keep track of the foods you eat over the coming days and next time you eat something that contains either of these food groups be aware how you body feels.  Is there any bloating or gas or stomach pain or any other symptom out of the ordinary?

Then do the same with meals that do not contain any of these food groups and make the same observation.

This exercise can be carried out with all food groups, and you can over time come to recognize which foods are ones that cause adverse reaction and you can eliminate these from your diet.

Another quicker way to find out if your are allergic to a particular food or food group is to visit a nutritionist.  They can conduct an allergy test, which will very quickly identify any foods that you are allergic too.

Another tactic that has been used successfully is to start on an anti-candida diet.  This diet will eliminate, or restrict a number of food groups that are generally the ones that cause an allergic reaction. 

The beauty of this approach is that you are combating the allergy as well as the candida infection.

Unfortunately, if you continue to eat foods that cause an allergic you may end up suffering reoccurring yeast infections. So, understanding the Candida Albicans allergy link and changing your diet accordingly is a step that can allow you to take back control of your health.
