Systemic Candidiasis (Yeast Syndrome) is a chronic condition where you will experience intermittent candida (yeast) infections like vaginal yeast, athlete’s foot, oral thrush, toenail fungus and ringworm.
Many people that are suffering from systemic candidiasis also suffer from other chronic problems including chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS), depression, multiple sclerosis, dementia, paroxysmal orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), headaches, mood issues, muscle and joint pain, cognitive problems (brain fog), gastrointestinal symptoms (abdominal pain, irritable bowel), unstable body temperature, unexplained rashes, dizziness and vertigo, headaches, red and burning eyes, hormonal problems, sleep issues, unexplained weight gain and many more.
You may view candida/yeast infections as just that, a fungal infection on a mucus membrane that you can treat by taking an antifungal medication like Diflucan or Nystatin.
The underlying cause of most cases of Systemic Candidiasis (Yeast Syndrome) is inflammation related to an immune system response to a biological toxin also known as chronic inflammatory response syndrome (CIRS). Common biological toxins causing/contributing to CIRS include exposure to the contents of a water damaged building (WDB) like mold, fungus, bacteria and other organisms as well as metabolic byproducts of the metabolism of these organisms (proteinases, hemolysins, volatile organic compounds, endotoxins, beta glucans mannans, spirocyclic drimanes). Other CIRS producing biological toxins include Lyme disease, exposure to toxic blue – green algae, brown recluse spider bites and poisoned fish.
The treatment for Systemic Candidiasis (Yeast Syndrome) requires an intelligent, systemic approach that includes the following:
