Are you suffering from these common signs and symptoms of candida overgrowth?
Often times, people confuse the symptoms of Candida with the symptoms of other common ailments. For example, some of the commonly known Candida symptoms usually overlap with the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome.
As a consequence, many people infected with Candida have been misdiagnosed. To make the matter worse, several doctors don't even consider Candida as a serious condition, to even diagnose it.
As a result, millions of people with the condition have been left to suffer needlessly.
So if you've been suffering for years, and you can't trace the root cause of your condition, you may want to consider Candida.
To help you out, we've compiled all the symptoms of Candida overgrowth--starting from the most common symptoms to secondary ones--for you to read.
Here they are:
If you're suffering from any form of yeast infection: penal, vaginal, skin, or oral thrush, then you probably have an excessive amount of yeast in your body.
In addition, if you're the type that consistently suffer from any kind of yeast infection for only a short time in a year or on rare occasions, then you most likely have Candida overgrowth--since people without Candida never get yeast infections.
In most cases, people who feel weak and tired most of the time, even after getting enough sleep, are usually diagnosed with Candida.
That's because the excess yeast normally strain the body and, at the same time, releases thousands of by-products that set off fatigue.
The by-products from yeast generally cause an addictive cycle, commonly known as Candida alcoholism.
Actually, once you get infected with Candida, your body develops a dependency on the by-products produced by the yeast.
And since sugar has some similar properties with such by-products, you may find yourself craving for sugary treats like sweets most of the time.
The secondary symptoms of Candida overgrowth can be a bit confusing for some, but if some of the secondary symptoms are accompanied with all the three symptoms listed above, then you probably suffer from Candida.
With that in mind, let's look at some secondary Candida symptoms:
To some extent, dandruffs may be a clear indication of Candida overgrowth. To make it simple, dandruffs are a common type of skin yeast, which are sometimes caused by excessive amounts of yeast in the body.
Even though dandruffs may still be caused by a series of other factors, but if they're accompanied by the common symptoms described above, chances are you're infected with Candida.
Chronic Upset Stomach
Since Irritable Bowel Syndrome, abbreviated as IBS, usually respond well when treated with probiotics (friendly bacteria for killing yeast), it has been directly linked with Candida overgrowth.
To support the claim, several studies have also suggested that some chronic cases of stomach upset are actually triggered by a mild overgrowth of fungus in the digestive track, especially the colon.
Apart from the symptoms listed above, the overgrowth of Candida can trigger a list of other problems in your body--depending on where the excessive yeast is concentrated the most.
To mention a few, it can cause sore throats, craving for alcohol, migraines, pre-menstrual syndrome, anxiety, rectal itching, athlete’s foot, poor memory, low sex drive, muscle weakness, mood swings, acid reflux, eczema or itching and lastly, obesity among others.
