Dr. Vibhuti Rana, PhD says... The information mentioned in the article below about different yeast infection symptoms and effects of fungal infections is correct.
There are over a
100 possible yeast infection symptoms that a person with yeast may
suffer from and many of these symptoms are in the form of fungal
Yeast infections usually start in the intestine and spreads to all other systems of your body. If left untreated, Candida yeast can systematically destroy your health and cause a variety of illnesses.
people do not even know that they have a yeast infection despite the
fact that it will flare up enough that millions of people every year
will have a myriad of symptoms associated with this fungi.
yeast and other fungi produce over 75 known toxins and poisons that can
affect the human body. These toxins overload the immune system and can
make you more susceptible to life threatening diseases.
Candida and other yeast and fungi have been linked to some major diseases including...
Crohns disease, arthritis, cancer, hypoglycemia, multiple sclerosis, high cholesterol, rapid onset of osteoporosis, asthma, and many others. Sound unbelievable to you? Just take a look at the pictures on this website and you will see just how serious fungal infections can sometimes be.
While some of these diseases have actually been classified as diseases of unknown cause by many medical researchers, I beg to differ!
Chapped and dry flaky skin
A poor appetite
Stiff shoulders or headaches
Constipation and bad breath
Frequent intestinal gas
Bloating and indigestion along with all the other intestinal problems are the most common yeast infection symptoms.
Yeast will also demand to be fed and will give you cravings for pastas, breads, sweets and sugars in general, which it requires as food.
More very common yeast infection symptoms include...
Worsening premenstrual syndrome
Irritability and mood swings
Fatigue or lack of energy
Muscle fatigue and pain
American women spend hundreds of thousands of dollars a year on over the counter medications for vaginal yeast and bladder infections. Many of these infections are re-occurring and will continue to re-occur until the immune system is restored to normal function and any underlying problems are fixed.
More yeast infection symptoms below...
Short attention span
Chronic allergies and gluten intolerance
Sinus and ear problems
Symptoms of multiple sclerosis
Acne and hormonal imbalances
Have an excessive craving for sugars
Being told it is all in your head
Being told that it's just your nerves
All these symptoms are so far unrelated from one another that it can be extremely hard to diagnose a candida yeast infection or a fungal infection.
Doctors are also not educated enough about yeast and fungi in medical school. So naturally, it is hard for them to track all these symptoms back to yeast as a possible cause. Since the creation of antibiotics, the medical establishment has completely adopted the mindset of bacteria and viruses as the causes of all diseases. So they are inclined to overlook the fact that yeast, Candida, and other fungi may be the underlying causes of many diseases. Many doctors don't even believe that it exists which is amazing because women obviously get vaginal yeast!
If you suffer from many of these symptoms you can do any of these Candida tests found on this webpage. This would help you to assess if you do indeed have Candida or any other species of yeast.
If you have determined you do have yeast, then you might want to take a look at the cause of yeast infection page. It will help
you figure out why you got it and how to treat those problems so you can
get rid of it.
The symptoms of heavy metal poisoning can be very similar to yeast
infection symptoms and heavy metals are also a cause of chronic yeast
infections. You can take a look at this page to see if you have many of
Many types of bad bacteria will cause intestinal symptoms that people think are being caused by yeasts but are actually being caused by bad bacteria. This page talks about many of those bacteria, the problems they cause and how to treat them.
There is plenty of evidence to assert that yeast or fungal infections caused by C. albicans and other fungi, affect the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), abdomen, cardiovascular machinery, kidneys, liver, bones, muscles and joints, spleen, and/or eyes. (1) A book chapter written by Perdoncini et al says that fungal species promote an immune response and subsequently, allergies. Exposure to the fungi in the diet or from the environment may cause allergy with much higher magnitude upon re-exposure. For example, Aspergillus spp., a filamentous fungus exposed mainly from leaves, corresponds to a potent allergen leading to asthma and other hypersensitivity issues. (2)
These are not the only ill effects of fungal infections. A study conducted at John Hopkins, schizophrenia and bipolar disorders in patients was associated with a history of Candida infections. This study supports the further probing into yeast infection-dependent mental health issues. (3) Moreover, Aflatoxin B1, fumonisins, moniliformin, and many other mycotoxins have been shown to cause heart failures and dysfunction, as seen in pathological experiments. (4) As mentioned in the article, vaginitis due to Candida infections is highly common among women.
Kabir and Ahmad, in 2012, said in an article that whatever be the cause of yeast infection, all the treatment outcomes depend upon the early diagnosis of the infection and timely speciation of the Candida species. (5) This opportunistic organism, if invasive, can even be fatal, damaging all the internal organs.

First of all, thank you! I have been meaning to send a note of thanks for quite some time. Your site is the most comprehensive chronicle on candida I have ever found, and has been most helpful for my family and myself. I have also sent numerous members of my extended family to your site, and you've helped some of them personally, including my sister, Cathy.
The Yeast Infection Liver Cleanse Protocol, in particular, has astonished me. In a lifetime of pursuing natural remedies for illness, this cleanse is one of the first such pursuits where my personal results nearly perfectly matched the description/claim. I'm amazed.
Thanks again for the service and knowledge you make available at this site.
San Clemente, CA
I just wanted to thank you for all the work you have put into this comprehensive website. I am going to try to follow the diet information here and see how it helps me. You are a very special person for sharing so much of your hard-earned information here when many just try to sell you stuff.
My best to you.
Thank you so much for the information on natural treatments! I did the parasite program and the results were astounding. I've never felt better, ever.
I lost fifteen pounds in the first three weeks. Although I found it difficult to remain on the diet after the three-week period, I did the best I could. I'm still losing about a 1.5lbs a week.
I just LOVE your website. It has sooo much needed info. It has been a blessing to me. I was so bad off before I started your program that I did not want to live anymore. You have saved my life. I only wish that my family will listen as well. They need help just like I do. Well that's all for now.
GOD BLESS YOU,
Well I have my mother and stepfather on your site. I have my neighbor and her sister on there, but most important is my friend Holly who is 25 and a cancer survivor. We had a long talk one evening about all of our health issues and I told her about me and how I came upon your page after a year of struggle and desperation and of the results I have had. I told her to take the test, she did and the rest will soon be history. I hope she contacts you soon. I am sure she will begin the treatment, see results and want to know more. I will keep you updated until she contacts you herself.
About the ways I feel better, in the words of one famous person to another, let me count the ways. I get up so much easier in the morning, I think so much clearer, I keep my focus, I am so much more calm, I no longer worship the sugar, I eat better because my body wants better, I am being a positive influence on my 9 year old, he is very curious about what makes me do what I have been doing. I took the test again and NO YEAST. I am loving my life.
I feel like I am finally winning one battle in life.
I again end my note with a big thanks and hope you have a wonderful week,
Just wanted to give you an update! I'm feeling really good. I think my whole stomach ordeal that I had in the spring freaked me out and I haven't been the same (mentally) since (because like I told you before, I am someone who very rarely became sick).
Anyway, I think my personality leads me to worry and over stress and that hugely impacted my immune system as well as my hair. My goal is to be a more positive person and be grateful for all I have (I have a great life!)
Now when my hair gets back to normal I will be 100%! Thanks for all your help! Take care and I'll keep you posted!
Well, I have to give you the credit. The pharmacist had told me that I needed at least 10 billion active cells in the probiotics to be effective, and you told me 30 billion, and to increase up.
So for the past 2 weeks or so, I upped to 30-60 billion, and I did get backed-up at first for a few days & was miserable; then my pipes "let loose" & it all cleansed itself in a major way. Now I am noticing normal digestion; in fact, withing an hour or so after eating, I eliminate & also first thing in morning like you said. My other symptoms of horrid bloating, heartburn, etc are all gone now.
I read somewhere that a healthy digestive system functioning as it was designed would result in a bowel movement within an hour or so after eating (plus the morning thing); in addition, the stool itself should be fluffy, and float; if it is heavy & dense & sinks, that means that most of the nutrition wasn't broken down & absorbed by your guts like it should, and most of the good material you needed just passed thru.
I hate to belabor the subject of the bowels, but I have been chronically & horribly constipated for years secondary to chronic use of opiates; had to take stool softeners, frequent laxatives & enemas just to get the material out. Plus I had all that horrid bloating, heartburn, and tons of other miserable symptoms. Now I don't have to take ANY product except the probiotic. It is a veritable miracle.
Also, I had to drive up to Michigan, around 17 hours each way, in the cold, being exposed to germs all over. I almost always caught a cold or flu when I made the trip every year; NOT THIS YEAR. So, even with the thrush still there a little bit, obviously my immune system is reaping the benefits as well as my digestion being drastically improved. I am amazed. My doc is impressed. My friends & family are astounded at how much energy I have already. The first few weeks I felt worse, but I am glad I stuck it out, and wanted to say thanks for the support & encouragement you offered.
Yea, the glands under my ears & jaw swelled up & were sore, and I was itchy all over for about a week, but it went away & now I am starting to feel better than I have felt in years! Praise God, who designed our bodies to help themselves when given the proper tools! You have been a special blessing, not just for me alone, I am sure.
