Candidiasis / Thrush

Diagnosis

Candida albicans—a type of yeast that lives in and on the body—is basically an opportunist. When the pH of the body is disturbed (due to taking antibiotics or steroids or having diabetes or a sluggish immune system), candida can move in and overgrow. That leads to candidiasis, or, as it’s more often called, a yeast infection. When it occurs in the mouth it’s usually referred to as thrush. Depending on the location of the infection (mouth or vagina), it can cause raised white patches, pain, bad breath, or discharge—super sexy, right? In severe cases, oral thrush can also spread to the back of the throat and down to your stomach, which is why you want to stop it in its tracks asap. Google “candidiasis” and you’ll come up with plenty of prescription medications as well as home remedies, but only a few of those have the research to back them up. For oral thrush, try tea tree oil, garlic paste, and probiotics containing lactobacillus (look for Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1, and Lactobacillus fermentum RC-14). For vaginal candidiasis, you can try topical tea tree oil, coconut oil, and those same lactobacillus-rich probiotics. Apple cider vinegar is often touted for its anti-fungal qualities, and you’ll likely encounter people relying on it for yeast infection woes (among other things!), but more studies are needed to determine the specifics of its effectiveness. Fortunately, there are remedies for this pesky ailment that are proven to work!

Many of the most common symptoms and illnesses that plague us today--anything from fatigue, bloating, and weight gain to arthritis, allergies, depression, prostate problems and multiple sclerosis--can be traced back to a surprising source: Yeast.

One out of three people suffer from candida overgrowth, which is also associated with asthma, hypoglycemia/diabetes, hypothyroid, brain fog and anxiety/depression.

Learn True Health: Resolving Gut Issues, Depression, Fatigue, Anxiety with Functional Medicine, IBS, Obesity, Chronic Fatigue, Parasites, Candida, SIBO

A lot of people suffer from gut issues. But most of them mistake the symptoms of gut issues for some other disease, so they end up not addressing the cause. Evan Brand is a fellow podcaster who has gone down that road, so I’m excited that he’s sharing his insights on how to solve gut issues. Growing Up Years Evan Brand is a survivor of several health conditions. Growing up, he had to deal with things like parasite infections, SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), H pylori, candida overgrowth, adrenal fatigue and many other health conditions. He also battled with depression, anxiety, fatigue and IBS for so many years. Initially, he consulted with conventional doctors, but nobody gave him a long-term solution. This led him to research and go the alternative medicine route. Dangers of EMF During Evan Brand’s research, he found that electromagnetic fields or EMF are a factor in causing leaky gut. He believes that if EMF can affect hormones, it can also affect the gut area. Evan Brand shares that in one of his past episodes, he had GE’s former senior scientist Dr. Richard Hansler on the show. Dr. Richard Hansler thoroughly explained that the modern light bulb is harmful because it negatively affects our melatonin production. Hence, we end up having a hard time to sleep. Because of that, Dr. Richard Hansler founded Lighting Lighting Innovations Institute. He also co-founded Low Blue Lights, which sells advanced lighting products. Dangers Of 5G Evan Brand also shares that another past guest, Dr. Jack Kruse was instrumental in influencing him to move out of the city to try to get away from cellphone towers. Dr. Jack Kruse is a known neurosurgeon in the industry. “They say 5G is a nightmare. Just because of the small cells. The 5G is the new generation of cell phone technology so that we can transmit and have a million people download YouTube videos all in a second from their smartphones,” Evan Brand explains. He adds, “There’s going to be these small cells the size of a watermelon. A giant router that transmits cellular data but they’re going to be on every three to four houses. So your risk of wireless pollution is going to go up so much.” Optimized Life Dr. Jack Kruse is also the CEO of Optimized Life. Optimized Life is a health and wellness company aiming to help people avoid the healthcare burdens we usually encounter as we grow older. Dr. Jack Kruse currently in practices in the Gulf South. “We just saw the first study tested on rats last March 22, that proved cellphone tower radiation can cause cancer,” said Evan Brand. “The Ramazzini Institute Study: Animal Study On Base Station/Cell Tower Radiofrequency Radiation. Dr. Kruse told me this six years ago, and now it is finally coming out that it is true.” I also heard of so many studies coming out detailing the dangers of 5G. The findings state that 5G causes dangerous health conditions like migraines and brain tumors. “The rollout of these technologies is going to happen at a much slower rate if you are in a rural area. Because the population is low and there is less need for a million 5G towers out here,” Evan Brand explained. “EMF is the new smoking. You can’t see it or smoke it, but it’s there.” Evan Brand says plans are already in place to erect those towers in Austin, Texas, Seattle, Washington, Miami, Florida, Atlanta, Georgia, New York, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles either this year or next year. Unfortunately, we can’t stop those plans so Evan Brand advises the need to be aware of protecting our health in the best way we can. Dealing With Candida Candida is a pathogenic yeast that can cause gut issues and symptoms like joint pains, fatigue, and gas. Evan Brand was able to talk with Nutritionist Ann Louise Gittleman, whose
