Candida Albicans

The Quiet Epidemic

Special Thanks to

Barbara Stuart, APRN, NP-C, CEN

Integrative Medical Practitioner

Presented by Melody Covino

what is candida albicans

A benign sugar fermenting yeast.

  • Integral part of intestinal ecology in small amounts.
  • One of 600 strains of Candida.
  • Can cause disease when overgrowth occurs.
What is Candida albicans?
ecological balance in gi tract

Candida is a yeast that is normally harmless as a single-celled fungus.

If it changes into a mycelial form it can take root in tissues and colonize.

Ecological Balance in GI Tract
what causes candida to grow
Imbalance of GI yeast vs good bacteria.
  • Immune dysfunction:
    • Exposure to toxic metals.
    • Internal toxins from poor digestion.
    • Stress
    • HIV
  • Reduction of good bacteria in the gut:
    • Consumption of refined carbohydrates, alcohol and caffeine.
    • Antibiotics
    • Immunosuppresive medications.
  • Upset in intestinal pH:
    • Acid blocking medications.
    • Decreasing digestive enzymes and HCL as we age.
What causes Candida to grow?
candida by products
Proliferation of Candida
  • Releases waste products called mycotoxins (poisons) and oxalates.
  • These further weaken the immune system.
Candida By-products
auto brewery syndrome
Candida Toxic Waste = Acetaldehyde
  • Affects Central Nervous System.
  • Interferes with hormone metabolism:
    • Pituitary
    • Thyroid
    • Adrenal glands
  • Increased blood alcohol levels.
    • Brain fog symptoms
Auto-Brewery Syndrome
candida by products1

Digestion of proteins = beta-alanine.

  • Lowers Taurine levels.
    • Taurine increases uptake of magnesium & potassium inside our cells.
    • Taurine binds toxins and removes them from the liver.
Candida By-products
heavy metals affect candida

Silver amalgam dental fillings have 53% mercury!

  • Mercury has an antibiotic effect.
  • Difficult to control yeast overgrowth.
Heavy Metals affect Candida
candida affects all ages gender
Women are more susceptible!
  • Women are 8 timesmore likely to have a yeast syndrome.
  • Vaginal yeast infections:
    • With Antibiotics
    • During pregnancy
    • Using Oral contraceptives (OCP)
  • Progestin from OCP:
    • Changes vaginal lining
    • Causes release of yeast-feeding sugar into bloodstream.
  • Candida Transmission
    • Sexually
    • Mother to newborn
      • Thrush
      • Diaper Rash
Candida affects all ages & gender
3 primary causes

Parasites

  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Food allergies
3 primary causes
predisposing factors

Antibiotics

  • Corticosteroid drugs
  • Compromised Immune System
  • Damp, moldy environment
  • Diet high in refined carbs
  • Mercury fillings
  • Stress
  • Decreased digestive secretions
  • Impaired liver function (NAFLD)
  • Altered bowel flora (bacteria balance)
  • Pregnancy
Predisposing Factors
candida signs and symptoms

Chronic fatigue

  • Brain fog (↑acetaldehyde)
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Food cravings
    • Sweets, alcohol, carbonated drinks
  • Hyperactivity & learning disabilities
  • Decreased libido
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Headaches
  • Eczema, psoraisis
  • Muscle aches
  • Arthritis
  • Bladder infections
  • Gas & bloating
  • Constipation and/or Diarrhea
  • Bad breath
  • Rectal itching
  • Sinusitis
  • Burning tongue
  • Nail infections
  • Diaper Rash
Candida Signs and Symptoms
causes major health issues
Auto-Immune Diseases caused by Leaky Gut
  • Lupus
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Thyroiditis (Hypothyroid)
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Vitilego
  • Vasculitis
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Urticaria (hives)
  • Diabetes
Causes Major Health Issues
candida allergies

Mycotoxins in the bloodstream!

    • Normally, the lining of the intestinal tract prevents mycotoxins from entering the blood.
      • Toxins
      • Microorganisms
      • Undigested food particles
    • The body launches an immune reaction that causes the allergic response.
Candida = Allergies
candida affects all systems

Candida toxins in the bloodstream filter through the liver.

  • From there, they proceed to other organs.
    • Brain, Nervous System, joints, skin, etc.
  • If impaired liver detoxification ability these toxins will not be eliminated and can initiate states of chronic disease.
    • Inadequate nutrition, poor cellular health and/or toxic overload impair detoxification.
Candida Affects All Systems
