Crohns Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome & Systemic Yeast Infections

Can Crohns disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome really be caused by chronic intestinal yeast or a fungal pathogen? Equally important is how these other fungal initiators of disease gain entry to the body? In most cases they entered through the mouth from contaminated foods. They have become activated from more than likely, antibiotics, steroids, and other modern drugs that destroy healthy stomach bacteria.

Once they get a hold in the digestive system systemic yeast infections and their mycotoxins penetrate the lining of the stomach, inflame the intestinal lining, cause massive lesions like ulcers, and away they go. And the typical western diet continues to feed them which of course keeps them growing and spreading through out your body. It is very common to have bloating, belching, intestinal gas, constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, and acid reflux as some common symptoms. What do you think could happen once they pierce the lining of the stomach and enter the blood stream? What is to stop them from going anywhere they want to go?

Systemic Yeast Infections and Crohn's Disease

The common symptoms of crohns disease may include, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, rectal bleeding, weight loss, fever, and of course all other symptoms of a digestive systemic yeast infection. Additional symptoms may also include disorders of the eyes, liver, gallbladder, muscles and joints, kidneys, and skin. (Journal of Musculoskeletal Medicine Nov. 1996)

  • (The Lancet 1996) Dr. Wakefield and colleagues found a direct link to the mother having measles during pregnancy with 3 of 4 siblings developing Crohns disease later in life. Antibiotic resistant pneumonia preceded the disease in every case. Did you see that? Antibiotics preceded the disease in every case.

  • Two of three worldwide studies found the average intake of carbohydrates (including bread, potatoes, and refined sugars) to be much greater in those that developed Crohn's. (Inflammatory Bowel Diseases 1990) 

  • Dr. A.V. Constantini (World Health Organization) found people with Crohns disease commonly have aflatoxin, which is a fungal mycotoxin in their blood.

  • (C.C.Kibbler 1996) Describes how Blastomyces fermatitidis a fungus, can produce lesions in the intestines. These types of lesions have been seen in patients with Crohns disease. Histoplasma fungi produced intestinal disease with symptoms such as diarrhea, weight loss, fever, and abdominal pain. The lesions that are seen in the intestines produce masses or ulcers mimicking IBD or carcinoma.

  • A 2016 study that was published in the Journal of Crohns and Colitis found a definite link to intestinal yeast and fungi to Crohns disease. They found that there was an overall reduction in bacteria biodiversity with Proteobacteria and Fusobacteria at increased levels. Basidiomycota, Ascomycota, Cystofilobasidiaceae  and Candida glabrata fungal species were over represented in Crohn's disease patients.

Not surprisingly these two diseases are most prevalent in the United States. Which is more than likely due to the high amount of processed foods in the diet and the use and over prescribing of antibiotics.

There are now many studies to indicate that indeed antibiotics, chemotherapeutic agents, steroids, and corticosteroids; can significantly reduce normal intestinal bacteria levels allowing the fungus or fungi to be able to attach itself to the mucus lining of the intestines in immuno suppressed individuals.

Who is immuno suppressed? Since 1960 scientists know that immune function has declined by 25% in adults. While at the same time our farmland soils are now 85% depleted of nutrients required for a healthy diet. (1992 World Earth Summit) These nutrients cannot be in the plant if it is not in the soil.

The fungal species that can be involved are the candida and candida tropicalis being the most prevalent species to infect the gastrointestinal tract and the whole body. But as that 2016 study pointed out, candida glabrata is over represented in Crohns disease patients.

It is possible, that blastomyces dermatitidis, coccidioides immitis, histoplasma capsulatum, and paracoccidioides brasiliensis can infect the digestive system also causing crohns disease and irritable bowel syndrome while mimicking their symptoms?

When it gets to the point of such a debilitating disease it can also enter the liver, spleen, and lungs being the first targets. From there, especially the candida species, it has the capability to get into every system in the body. Many times these systemic yeast infection diseases are never diagnosed as such until unfortunately, the autopsy.

One thing is clear when candida yeast gets to the point of crohns or irritable bowel syndrome symptoms. Every single patient has always been immune system deficient in some way.

If you suffer from any of those two diseases I think it would be worth your time and effort go on the Diet recommended on this website and try a few proven supplements for at least a month. If you feel better and your symptoms are improved, then it is safe to assume you have found the cause of your illness, that being a intestinal yeast infection. Then you can take the necessary steps in your life to get rid of it or keep it at bay, much like a diabetic.
