Could Your Candida Be Gluten Intolerance?

The similarities between the symptoms of Candida and gluten intolerance, also known as Celiac Disease, are very similar. Candida is yeast that lives in the body naturally in the stomach, intestines and other places in the body. While most doctors don’t recognize Candida as a legitimate health problem, it is believed by many that the overgrowth of Candida is caused by the overuse of antibiotics. These antibiotics kill off too much of the body’s beneficial bacteria that exist in all of us and Candida grows in its place. Too much Candida is believed to cause a whole host of health problems such as:

- Problems in the digestive tract like constipation, diarrhea, bloating, cramps, and other symptoms that may seem similar to irritable bowel syndrome.
- Chronic fatigue, which seems to worsen immediately after eating.
- Allergies and sensitivities to food where there was none before.
- An increase in skin problems, such as rashes, itching and a worsening case of athlete’s foot.
- For women, problems with the vagina, including itching or an increase in infections.
- A cold or flu that won’t go away or frequent bouts of sickness, also an increase in headaches, dizziness or an inability to concentrate.

Gluten Intolerance, on the other hand, comes from the body’s aversion to gluten.

Gluten is a protein found in most grain, including wheat, rye, barley and oats. When someone eats gluten with intolerance, an enzyme in the body reacts in an abnormal way and causes the walls of the intestine to thicken so that they don’t absorb nutrients in food in the proper way. The symptoms of Gluten intolerance are:

Chronic and voluminous diarrhea, weight loss, stunted growth in children and constant fatigue, abdominal pain, cramping, bloating and distension. An increase in canker sores, also known as mouth ulcers, is common, as well. In extreme cases, lactose intolerance and constipation have been known to appear.

Both gluten intolerance and Candida are difficult to diagnose, since they both have such a wide range of symptoms. For Gluten intolerance, blood tests are the first step in a successful diagnosis. They have proven to be 98% effective in detecting antibodies in the blood, therefore letting doctors know that intolerance to gluten may be present. A second procedure, a biopsy, is also used to check on the health of the intestine. A doctor will remove a few cells from the intestine and test them to see if they have been damaged. These two procedures together are an almost failsafe way to test for gluten intolerance.

As for Candida, there doesn’t appear to be a consensus on how to test properly for it. A stool sample sent to a lab for testing is a common recommendation, but accuracy isn’t 100%.

Many people simply stumble upon their Candida diagnosis by, over time, ruling out every other possible illness.

    I am 27 years old and have been fighting yeast infections since I was 18. I would go to the doctor and get a few pills to clear up the infection, or get the messy paste over the counter. But it never seemed to clear up the problem for long. I was having yeast infections two to three times a month and got to the point where I did not even treat it because the treatments cost a lot and did not help. I suffered from sever fatigue, sugar cravings, headaches, canker sores in my mouth and sore throats. In November I started reading the information on your site and got serious about getting rid of this problem. At first very nervous about this not working. I quit eating all sugar, yeast, wheat, and molds. I quite taking my birth control pills (been on them since I was 20), started taking pro-biotics and multi vitamins. By Christmas time I was symptom free! No yeast infections, no fatigue, no canker sores, no sore throats, NOTHING. Since then I have started introducing things like fruit and milk products back into my diet. I know when something does not agree with right away. This site, several books and a commitment to a better lifestyle has saved me! Thank you so much for leading me to feel better and be healthier!!

    Hello Jane,

    3 weeks ago I decided to do as my husband has been pestering me to do and quit sugar, etc. to see if this would stop my diarrhea. It did.

    I took it a step further and tried the Rife frequencies for candida on my head where I’ve had an infection in my mastoid bone and ears ever since 1) sniffing aspergillus spores which were coming out of my husband’s nostrils (he had been a medical scientist in a hospital lab and had become mysteriously very very ill) 2) having dirty road water get splashed into my ear. I had 3 courses of antibiotics in a row 2 years ago to try and kill some of the nasty things now living in my noggin and ever since then I’ve had the runs, too.

    I can tell when the frequencies kill something as I then have gunk which comes down the back of my throat—there had been candida in my head, too! !!! I’m going to use the Rife machine again today. We have a variety of gadgets to help us try to kill the aspergillus fungus.

    I know that there probably aren’t two other people in the whole of the UK who have what Paul and I have—he can’t get a diagnosis although he sent in his own sample to another lab and found out he’d washed aspergillus out of his sinuses, and he’s been washing it out 3 times a day for the last 7 years. It’s been a nightmare. Because he also had Leaky Gut from 13 years of misdiagnosed Giardia he’d already stopped eating sugar and yeast and wheat. I’ve joined him now and find I only miss these things sometimes , and I’ve even found I like having yogurt, with pumpkin seeds and oat bran, for breakfast :-) What a surprise!

    Just thought I’d share my story with you. :-) Thanks for being here to help!
