The most common symptoms of candida that I see are an excessive craving for sugar and starchy foods, brain fog, fatigue, and bloating.
Candida or yeast causes an imbalance of normal intestinal flora. The yeast itself produces toxins in the gut that cause inflammation of the small intestine and often lead to leaky gut.
Most of our digestion and absorption of nutrients takes place in the small intestine and if it is not functioning properly (like with candida), we won’t absorb our nutrients and can actually become malnourished
As I mentioned also, leaky gut is very common with candida infections because the candida itself actually poke tiny holes in the gut wall. When food particles and toxins leak into the bloodstream, we begin to see the effects of massive inflammation in the body. Symptoms such as joint and muscle pain, fibromyalgia, brain fog, autoimmune disorders, eczema and more.
I recently completed a consultation on a client who had candida which we found on her GI MAP test from @dxsolutionslab She had chronic immunodeficiencies, fibromyalgia, bloating, sugar cravings, and brain fog. We discovered the root cause of many of her symptoms so that she can properly heal and stop putting bandaids on her problems. I know first hand how freeing that is!
I share this to say, you don’t have to feel helpless and hopeless. Like you’ve tried everything possible but still haven’t discovered what the problem truly is. Reach out to someone that can help you uncover the root cause of your issues so you can come into your highest state of wellness! If that person is me, I am here for you!
