Urban myth!: There is no such thing as systemic candida infections. Having candida in the intestines, genital tract, skin, and oral cavity is normal -- candida is just one of millions of normal bacteria and fungi that inhabit all human beings. Aside from local infections like vaginal or oral candida (thrush), there is no need for treatment. Don't waste good money on quackery!
