You could have cardiovascular problems from my experience and you could have symptoms of hypoxia (lack of oxygen). I’ve been dealing with this lately, you basically need to change your habits and start exercising.
Also experienced from such a reaction. Its called capillary hypoperfusion. Basically means the capillaries, the tiniest blood vessels in the body, constrict as part of an inflammatory response. Its pretty typical and results in symptoms of oxygen depletion, even though blood oxygen levels and blood pressure are all fine. Mold illness, lyme/coinfection, and migraine sufferers all are very familiar with what this feels like.
I guess that could make sense if the candida is causing inflammation in the body. And if food particles/toxins are being released into the bloodstream via leaky gut, that would most likely trigger the inflammation response as well.
Thanks for the info!
Well, thats true only to a diluted point. The articles put out on leaky gut and all that are pretty shoddy in how they present the problem and are really designed to sell supplements imo. The body should still not be having systemic reactions to the point of causing any kind of dramatic symptoms, especially to more than just a few typical allergenic foods. Even in times of dramatic inflammation, oral tolerance as its called typically remains intact. The only time people should ever really see a disturbance in this system is during times of extreme humoral inflammation, such as a HUGE bacterial infection or a really bad flu or cold type of bug, and only temporarily while the immune system is making an all out attack. If that was your case, you would know it. Its only during a break down of oral tolerance that these reactions occur, and research is begining to show that tolerance remaining intact is very reliant on a group of cytokines (immune chemical messengers) called interferons, particularly interferon gamma (IFN-g). Food reactions of all types can actually be brought to halt and tolerance can be reestablished by administration of this cytokine alone. IFN-g also plays a crucial role in the immune system in that it is required to make Th1 cells, the orchestrator’s of the intracellular immune response. For this reason, IFN-g becomes the target of some intracellular bad guys, hhv being the most popular. A successful candida protocol could actually even make this problem worse as a Th17 mediated immune response can be one of the last sources of an appreciable amount of IFN-g. If leaky gut and inflammation were the necessary requirements, then crohns patients would have huge problems with this, yet they rarely do. It has to do with the very specifics of the immune system. And in our case, typically, its not going to go away until there is actually MORE of the right kind of inflammation. Food for thought.
Also, the lack of Th1 driven immunity is what leads to a candida overgrowth
