What Is Candida / Yeast Infection?

Candida is a yeast-like fungi which can live on the skin and the mucous membranes of the mouth, digestive tract and vagina (often called thrush).

If you could see it it would look white or cream.  There are different types of candida and some of them can cause illness and disease.   The most well known type of candida for causing disease is candida albicans.

It seems that most of us have candida in our digestive system and under normal circumstances it lives in harmony with us.  But when the candida starts to multiply more than normal (known as candidiasis), it can cause health problems.   The candida can penetrate the gut wall (leading to 'leaky gut syndrome') and enter the bloodstream.  It can also generate toxins in the body.

This can affect men and women of all ages including babies and children.

There appears to be little medical research carried out into the health problems caused by candida.   To make matters more complicated the list of health issues and problems that candida can cause is vast and many of these e.g. hayfever may have other causes too.  This can make diagnosis very difficult.  

Bear in mind too that candida will cause different symptoms in different people and the symptoms can vary from day to day in the same person.  It affects men and women and people of all ages.
