Symptoms of Candida

Many fungal, bacterial and gastrointestinal experts believe that candida is at the root of most health disorders, infections and diseases. This is because when candida flourishes to the point of causing symptoms that is a sign that your natural defense systems are down. Your immune system is no longer properly functioning, and health problems crop up.

The candida yeast infection is sometimes tough to diagnose.

A lot of the symptoms this yeast overgrowth produces look like signs of other illnesses or infections. The doctors that fully understand how pervasive yeast infections are in the human population will be the first to tell you that most physicians and health care providers are not “up to speed” when it comes to diagnosing candida as the underlying cause of so many health problems.

When you look at many of the symptoms listed below, you can see why the candida fungus is often overlooked as the cause of those symptoms. Belching and bloating might be occurring because you just ate a very gassy meal. Persistent heartburn might because by a reaction to a certain food, and frequent headaches can develop from a number of health conditions.

Bearing that in mind, check out the lengthy list of candida symptoms below. If you only display 1 or 2 of the following signs, you may have nothing to worry about. If several of these candida signs are present, however, you should schedule an appointment with your doctor immediately to perform blood and stool tests to see exactly how pervasive candida overgrowth is in your body.
