A note for the readers, I have read hundreds of papers about candida and the immune system because I got very sick during 2008. It has been an obsession for me to learn and learn about candidiasis to safe my own health. It has been necessary since I didn’t find support by the medical community.
Anyway, I have read medical papers mentioning how a humoral immune response (Th2) is more implicated during invasive candidiasis (Fungemia, Candiduria, Candidemia, Systemic Candidiasis)
than the Th1.
When candida reaches the bloodstream, antibodies respond to it strongly. However, this isn’t the case on mucosal tissues,(genitals, tongue, intestinal,lungs, ears, etc) Th1 is the immune defense protecting mucosal fungal growth.
Normally, when one of the two main branches is suppressed, the other one is overactive. For chronic mucosal candida sufferers, Th1 is depressed, and Th2 is overactive.
This explain the over-reaction candida sufferers have to allergens, chemicals, food, etc.
It may also explain why CRC sufferers don’t get invasive candidiasis or fungemia.
