Don’t Feed the Candida  !!!   Part One 


Welcome to the podcast Fibromyalgia Real Solutions with Amanda Love. You are listening to episode 6. By the way, you can listen to this podcast wherever you are in the world and at any time that you wish. I always include show notes for those with “ brain fog” so you don’t have to take notes. If you missed my previous episode on  Immune health then you may want to listen to it before this one. 

   I do believe that there is a lot of information both good and bad out there about fibromyalgia . As an educator who specializes in this area, I think it is my job to point out to you that beneficial information can be organized in a fashion that will reduce the symptoms of this malady. 

    My name is Amanda Elise Love and  I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 9 years ago which influenced my decision to enter the field of nutrition and now I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist who works with those who are suffering from fibromyalgia.   

   Today we are going to explore the world of Candida and its impact on your general health.

   

  Candida is a yeast, which is a form of fungus. Yeasts are everywhere, on your skin, in your mouth, and in your gut and also in your reproductive parts especially thriving in warm dark moist places. 

     As you probably know, yeasts are present in many of the things we love to eat such as bread, cheese, wine, pastries, and carbohydrates. 

 

Yeasts are fungi that usually live in balance within our bodies ecosystem. 

The Candida Albicans strain is a fungus that only becomes problematic when it starts to grow out of control competing with the good bacteria for resources. When a person has an overgrowth of candida albicans the condition is known as Candidiasis. The Candida albicans strain exists peacefully with bacteria that produce acid in the gut where the pH is kept low which helps keep fungal infections at bay. 


But what causes it to go haywire? 


What about the pH of our bodies? Ordinarily, our bodies like to exist around a normal pH of 7.4. However, certain areas tend to be more acid such as the gut and vaigna.If these areas become more alkaline then Candida will grow and begin to process more sugars. This process creates byproducts that are called mycotoxins which have the potential to change body tissues and can make you sick. 


These mycotoxins produced by an overgrowth of Candida disrupt cell communication and confuse the body. Many scientists believe that this interruption of cell communication is responsible for many autoimmune conditions. 


   One by-product produced by Candida processing sugars is acetaldehyde which can be toxic. This is one of the same byproducts made when your liver breaks down alcohol. 

 

  Acetaldehyde can create a deficiency in vitamin B- One which contributes to brain fog, irritability, sugar cravings and depression which is why those with Candida overgrowth can feel like they are constantly hungover.
