Things to Consider with Candida Overgrowth
Candida overgrowth is a common finding on GI MAP testing. So many people are suffering with this issue and don’t even know it. And, until it’s eradicated, they won’t get better.
Here are some of the most common signs and symptoms of Candida overgrowth:
- Cravings for sweets
- Bad breath
- No energy
- Brain fog
- Hormone imbalance
- Joint pain
- Loss of sex drive
- Chronic sinus and allergy issues
- Gas and bloating
- Weak immune system
It is one of the most adaptive organisms that exists. This helps to ensure its survival. Here are a few fascinating facts about this organism:
- It’s a primary cause of anxiety, depression, ADHD, and other mental health conditions. The toxins released by Candida can impair neurotransmitter production/function and disrupt brain chemistry.
- Overgrowth of Candida creates a huge burden on the adrenal glands, making adrenal fatigue very common. Once adrenal fatigue occurs, it perpetuates Candida overgrowth by weakening the immune system.
- Candida increases zonulin levels which is the substance that controls the tight junctions in the gut lining. When the junctions are weak, leaky gut occurs. It can also penetrate directly through the wall of the gut lining to cause leaky gut.
I could go on but you get the point. Overgrowth of this organism isn’t something you want to mess around with. It’s important to catch it early and get rid of it before it creates massive damage to the gut lining. You can do that by working with a provider that offers the GI MAP test by @dxlabsolutions.
