What Is Candida Albicans?

Candida Albicans is a form of yeast, which is found naturally in the human body.  Usually it is found in either the flora of the mouth, the skin, the gastrointestinal tract (digestive system) or the vagina.

It is classed in the same group as fungus, molds and mildew and generally a healthy immune system will prevent the fungus from growing out of control.

Unfortunately if a person happens to have a weakened immune system, which can be impacted by illness, stress or having a poor diet, the fungus is allowed to grow unchecked.

It is important to remember that everyone has this yeast in their digestive tract along with many other types of microbes, some of which are beneficial to the health of our bodies and therefore necessary, and others, which are not. 

These microbes compete for space in the GI tract, and normally the “good” bacteria has the upper hand and stops yeast infection like candida sticking to the lining of the intestines and gut.

When candida does manage to gain a foothold on the gut walls it can release spores into the bloodstream by piercing the gut lining with tentacles.  As well as releasing spores that can then travel and infect other parts of the body, the contents of the gut can be allowed to enter into the bloodstream, which is known as leaky gut syndrome.

Problems arise when factors such as stress, poor diet or the excessive use of drugs, alcohol and antibiotics reduce the effectiveness of our immune system, or help to kill off the friendly bacteria in our bodies which suppress the Candida Albicans from growing prolifically.

Certainly one of the best ways of helping restore the number of friendly bacteria found in the digestive system, thereby reducing the yeast infection, is by taking probiotic food supplements.

These are supplements that can be either taken as a food, a drink or in capsule form, which contain millions of friendly bacteria.  These help restore the balance in the GI Tract and will help the good bacteria a better chance of controlling the yeast overgrowth. 

Another way of treating a Candida infection is through the use of anti-fungal medication, either topically or orally or as a suppository. Some of these are available over the counter so ask your pharmacist for their advice.

Changing your diet can have an impact on candida’s ability to thrive.  Reducing sugar and foods containing sugar, reducing the amount of processed food consumed and eliminating yeast products from the diet can help suppress candida growth.

Candida in itself is not dangerous when kept under control, and can co-exist with the other microbes in the GI tract quite happily with no ill effect.  However, the symptoms of an overgrowth can range from slight irritation, all the way through to very severe complications.

Often the first symptom you’ll notice when suffering with a Candida Albicans infection are white patches will appear in the mouth, throat esophagus or vagina.

It is important to ensure that at the first sign of a candida Albicans outbreak you contact a physician to be examined and have the diagnosis confirmed.
