What to do if I am worried about having candida albicans in my body?

Stop reading junk. Forgive my frankness. If you get involved with the "candida" cult, you will never feel well again. These people will persuade you that you have an illness that mainstream medicine refuses to understand, that you will never be able to cure, and that you must manage intensively. It's a horrible mind-set, and it's also a cruel fraud. Get with an evidence-based holistic practitioner, not these folks. Read more...

Treating vaginal Candida albicans. What type of soap should be used down there? Should I stop wearing underwear? Best safe practices?

Vaginal yeast. Vaginal yeast infection, usually caused by Candida albicans, is not sexually transmitted and there are no "safe practices" to worry about. And yeast because of tight clothing is an urban myth; underwear won't make a difference and neither will the soap you use. Make sure diagnosis is correct, get the right treatment (usually an "azole" medication), and otherwise don't worry about it. Read more...

Would a positive igg for Candida Albicans mean systemic infection or that it is an infection somewhere in your body? I have +stool fungal culture.

Not necessarily. I find these studies to be of little value.They are often promoted by alternative health vendors as having value for dozens of chronic conditions. People usually have candida albicans to the point it makes up 5% of the dry weight of stool. Igg is often positive for hundreds of factors for which no problems are present, with the number increasing with age. This includes candida. Read more...
No. Everybody has met the fungus and it's perfectly healthy to have antibodies. And everybody has fungi in their stool -- there are thousands of different normal microbes in your gut. If you buy into the "systemic candida" cult, you'll never feel well again and you'll never find the real cause of any symptoms that you have. Forgive my frankness -- get out of this mindset.

How do you eliminate candida albicans colonization?

Mostly, you don't. Everybody has some candida on their body surfaces, inside and out; too much candida, or candida growing in the wrong place, can be a disease, but blaming normal colonization with candida for everything that ails you, or trying to cure everything with antifungal medications, is generally useless. So-called "candida diets" work because they eliminate foods that are unhealthy for other reasons. Read more...

What food promotes candida albicans growth?

Candida albicans. Some feel that high sugar meals promote Candida Albicans growth. This means sweets like cakes, cookies, candy, processed breads, etc. Using whole grain flour may help a little with this because the sugar would be delivered a little more slowly to your system, but it is still sugar. High sugar fruits (pineapple, papaya, etc) might be seen this way also. Read more...
