(NaturalHealth365) Check your tongue – is it white? You may have Candida albicans which produces about 180 chemical toxins. These harmful substances are capable of causing any number of ‘unexplainable‘ health problems.
A white tongue, lack of energy, or irritability are early warning signs of poor health. In fact, I would suggest that most people with chronic degenerative diseases like IBS, fibromyalgia, or autoimmune conditions suffer from Candida. Don’t ignore the signs.
Candida is a type of fungus (or, more specifically – yeast) that can cause fungal infections like candidiasis, candidemia, and oral thrush. Dozens of species of candida are known to affect humans and Candida albicans is the most common.[2, 3] When the immune system functions normally, Candida is kept in check and exists harmlessly in the skin or mucous membranes like those of the gut and vaginal area. It’s even among the organisms that newborns acquire during natural birth, nursing, or from food. However, a compromised immune system, and other factors such as poor diet, can lead to an imbalance where Candida overwhelms the body, a condition known as Candida overgrowth. →
