Researchers in Europe have found a connection between Candida and Alzheimer's Disease. 1,500 Autopsies of Alzheimer's patients who had died from the disease revealed Candida was present in evey one of these brains. The US Library of Medicine/National Institute of health advises: "In some cases, probiotics will be the difference between a good quality of life and a bad one, or perhaps even life over death."
Candida Albicans, a beneficial element to our system, provides some B vitamins to our systems. However, if it is overgrown, it is a detriment to our health. How to tell if you have a Candida issue? If you have been on any antibiotic therapies, or steroid therapy (for pain, allergies, dental work, etc.), drink alcohol or if you have eaten high carbohydrate foods or sugars, then you may have a Candida overgrowth problem.
If you have regularly and consistently taken probiotics, AND have taken HIGH dosages of pro-biotics, such as 50 Billion or more daily (at least 14 strains) for at least 2 months after antibiotics or steroids, (some researchers say at least 4 months), then you should be in balance with your intestinal flora.
Check out this partial list of symptoms, if you have one or more of these you may well have Candida overgrowth:
Candida forms roots that invade the body tissue and becomes a fungus. When it gets to this stage, leaky gut syndrome and other health maladies can manifest. This type of overgrowth requires many months of treatments.
No matter what Candida cleanse you may decide on, keep in mind that you should take relatively high doses of enzymes several times throughout the day, or the cleanse may not be effective. You need to take enzymes to break down a protective agent the candida uses to stay attached to your digestive tracks. Candida is tenacious.
We encourage you to do some research on your own. Many, such as Dr. Axe, recommend switching up your cleanse routine every month. We also recommend Mycozil from Global Healing Center, a powerful Candida and Fungus cleanse. You can click on the button below to find out more, it's under supplements.
