I am new here and would like to know if there is any possibility of having a vaginal yeast infection (recurring) without intestinal dysbiosis.
I would assume that one would not get a vaginal yeast infection if the gut was balanced (but how about if there is a vaginal bacterial infection?), but I just want to verify. It’s difficult to connect this to the gut when (in my case) there are no digestive troubles. Are the two always related?
Under normal conditions, if you have Candida albicans in your intestines you’ll also have some digestive problems. If you want to test to see whether or not you have intestinal Candida, purchase some type of antifungal and take it for a few days. If you experience any die-off symptoms (also known as Herxheimer reaction) at all, then it’s a good guess that you have a Candida overgrowth. As the first test, you could also eat a very large portion of Brussels sprouts which is a natural and strong antifungal. If you do experience die-off, you should stop the antifungal immediately as well as avoid eating more Brussels sprouts and follow our protocol for protecting yourself from the Candida toxins which cause die-off.
Below is a list of some of the die-off symptoms experienced when the Candida start dying.
• bloating, gas
• constipation and/or diarrhea
• swollen glands
• coldness in extremities
• Increased joint or muscle pain (flu-like symptoms)
• Elevated heart rate
• Itching, hives, rashes, or any type of skin breakout
• Vaginal infections (these can actually be a die-off symptom as well as a Candida symptom. The same can be said for many of the symptoms.)
