Question: What is Candida and why have I never heard of it before?
It just seems a bit of a strange illness. It’s symptoms are very general, like anyone could have it, there’s no cure really, except for costly natural products.
I believe in the fungus, obviously it’s real, but all these symptoms like anxiety and depression. It seems like they’re calling out to people who are desperate for an answer to their problems, or to people who just want a study to go with their vast range of fog symptoms that really aren’t a huge deal.
The symptoms also don’t seem to be recognised on any reputable health page, such as the NHS website, but more on independent and silly websites.
What do the rest of you think?

Boo, Candida or Candida albicans is the Latin or scientific study of the fungus which can cause usually mild infections in young infants mouth (“thrush”) or in the diaper area (“diaper rash”) or in the adult female vagina. It is found on just about everyone’s skin but usually does not cause a problem. It is VERY commonly also called Monilia and the infection is known as moniliasis.

    Boo, more and more people are becoming familiar with Candida and the symptoms associated with Candidiasis (Candida overgrowth).

    Because this fungal overgrowth upsets the body’s natural balance of good bacteria it can affect many internal systems and cause a wide range of symptoms that vary from person to person based on severity.

    Typically we tend to treat our symptoms as it is often easier to just take something to get rid of the immediate problem instead of working to restore a healthy internal balance through a proper diet.

    As far as your concerns about this info on reputable websites it does tend to originate more from natural and homeopathic remedy sources for natural cures and diets etc., but even the Center for Disease Control and other reputable sources online have a lot of info if you are looking for more information….see the source links below.

    There are a ton of people who swear by the yeast free diet and have seen results in eliminating symptoms such as the ones you mention in your original question. You may consider joining a forum online and get some “real” feedback from real people to base your judgement on – there are even groups on Facebook that talk about these issues and ask questions.

    Anyway – I hope some of that helped. Good luck!
