Chiropractor Jay Davidson wrote a blog post called “Detoxing Candida: The All-Important First Step.”
From the article:
Candida albicans is an opportunistic, and potentially pathogenic, yeast that lives in the human gut flora. When it’s in balance with the other bugs in your microbiome, candida plays a beneficial role in the body. It aids in absorbing nutrients and keeps digestion running smoothly.
But when candida levels become imbalanced, unpleasant symptoms may arise. And not just candida symptoms in the gut — which you might expect — but symptoms throughout the body. Many circumstances can lead to an imbalance in your microbiome and causes candida to run amok. This may result in candida overgrowth, or candidiasis, which can cause or worsen chronic illness.
There’s plenty of reasons to kick excess candida to the curb. Many people go after the yeasty microbes head-on, only to find that they feel more miserable than before they tried to detox them. This can be confusing and frustrating. Killing off the little critters is supposed to make you feel better, right?
