There are a lot of reasons why a candid a overgrowth can occur.
The most mentioned causes are:
- mercury poisoning
- problems with the methylation cycle (mostly genetics)
- antibiotics use
- ph imbalance
It is probably a combination of these causes and a (genetically?) weak immune system which makes this occur.
The overly use of sugar doesn’t lead to candida, but it does stress certain organs. The reason to go for a low carb diet is to elevate the symptoms and give your body the ability to cure itself. As long as the real cause of the candida overgrowth is not found, the candida will probably return once you go back on your previous diet.
I’m still working on why I got candida. So far, I haven’t found anything.
I hope to do a mercury/methylation test soon.
