Had stool analysis done.showed 'many candida albicans'. Is this bad? Does it mean I have systemic yeast? I have no stomach problems or other symptoms

No worries!: "Systemic yeast" is an urban myth -- often used to explain any number of symptoms but not an accepted medical entity, at least not by the scientific medicine community. It is normal to have yeasts in the intestine anmd to be visible in feces. Also, "stool analysis" is pretty much a waste of time and money, except in very specific circumstances and if recommended by an appropriate specialist. ...Read more

Am I able to have candida cleanse for systemic and local overgrowth?

Am I able to have candida cleanse for systemic and local overgrowth?

No such thing: Please forgive my frankness. After forty years of talk, the vast majority of people in the scientific community -- the most cutthroat of all truth-seekers -- believe that "systemic candida" is a cruel myth. Once a person thinks they have this, they NEVER feel well again, since no one is ever cured. Please get with a sensible practitioner -- perhaps an evidence-based holist. ...Read more

How do I get tested for candida overgrowth? I have symptoms, but it is not visible.

Why ever?: The idea of candida overgrowth is a myth. The yeast is a common occupant of the intestines and is as much as 5% of the dry weight of your poo. I have seen some mega labs, one specifically, that advertises their test of submitted stools samples for their "normals" and advises folks to seek treatment. They always suggest you repeat the test $$$ to be sure you are better. ...Read more

Try the supplements (echinacea, garlic lactobacillus to name a few.). May need oral antifungals as well. But if your symptoms point to it. And your history adds to this diagnosis. Treat accordingly. ...Read more

Some fungi are particularly difficult to treat and require long term IV or oral therapy.
