Candida exists in two forms, the pathogenic harmful version and the non-pathogenic beneficial version. We all do have candida in our bodies and if it all died, we would not be alive. We need candida to function and be normal.
However, we don’t need pathogenic candida whatsoever and this is where it causes harm. The goal of your own personal protocol should be to revert the candida back to the non-pathogenic version and this requires a specific plan.
No disrespect, raster, but where do you get this nonsense? Show me a documented case of someone dying from a lack of Candida Albicans, or show me a study that explains why it’s so absolutely necessary for human health that we would hypothetically DIE without it. What vital function do you think it performs? Do you deny that the metabolites from the yeast form are toxic to the human body? Despite the fact that science has already shown that the human body forms up to 78 antibodies for these metabolites? You think the Axelson study about Candida antigens (link to it here), the one that Orian Truss cites in the aforementioned journal article, is fiction? Or inaccurate?
So in your belief system, every single natural and prescription antifungal that has been discussed in this forum will only kill the mycelial form of C. Albicans? And leave the yeast form alone? Otherwise we would die, yes? Or at least start to suffer symptoms from C. Albicans deficiency? How would the yeast form be so invulnerable to all of these antifungals?
Candida sucks, there is no way to completely destroy all of the candida in your body…
Humans and candida have a strong relationship…
Straight from wikipedia:
“Candida is a genus of yeasts and is currently the most common cause of fungal infections worldwide. Many species are harmless commensals or endosymbionts of hosts including humans; however, when mucosal barriers are disrupted or the immune system is compromised they can invade and cause disease.”
“Commensalism is a class of relationship between two organisms where one organism benefits without affecting the other. It compares with mutualism, in which both organisms benefit, amensalism, where one is harmed while the other is unaffected, and parasitism, where one benefits while the other is harmed.”
“An endosymbiont is any organism that lives within the body or cells of another organism…Many instances of endosymbiosis are obligate; that is, either the endosymbiont or the host cannot survive without the other…”
