Candida is a fact of life. It’s on us, it’s inside us. Whether that’s good or bad, there’s nothing we can do against it.
In this respect, candida is very similar to the E. Coli bacterium. That bacterium is also on us and inside us, and there’s nothing we can do about it.
E. Coli may overgrow and then cause nasty symptoms. But in small amounts (which, as mentioned, are unavoidable), E. Coli is known to actually help keep the immune system healthy in a delicate balance. Too much E. Coli is bad, too little E. Coli is just as bad.
Like E. Coli, Candida may overgrow and then cause nasty symptoms. I do not know if Candida, in small amounts, actually helps us stay healthy like E. Coli does. There are many contributors to this forum who state that Candida too is actually necessary for a healthy digestion and a balanced immune system, but I’m frankly not so sure if there is solid scientific support for this opinion.
Anyway, Candida is not evil by itself. Overgrowth is bad. Normal amounts are unavoidable, and they are either just a fact of life (neutral to our health and well-being), or they are even necessary.
