I think its an “overgrowth” of Candida thats the problem. Here’s a little paragraph I found just now that seems to sum up my thinking.
“Candida Albicans is the formal name for the fungus or yeast that is responsible for yeast infections. Normally it lives in symbiosis in the human body along with a variety of other healthy bacteria. It actually has the important job of helping to detect and destroy other pathogenic bacteria that may enter the body, but sometimes something happens in the body that allows it to grow out of control and it create infections accompanied by a variety of unpleasant symptoms. One of it’s other functions is to decompose a dead body and when it proliferates in a living body it still tries to do it’s job.”
I wonder if the antifungals could do away with “good” yeasts too? I drink milk kefir and am aware of yeasts int hat which appear to by symbiotic with the good bacteria in there.
Anyone know what the symptoms are of too little Candida Albicans in your body ?
