Candida Albicans is a type or yeast or fungus microorganism. It usually lives with many other microorganisms in your gut. It is important to understand that antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, a poor diet or alcohol abuse may upset your intestinal balance and so destroy friendly bacteria and this encourages excessive yeast growth and leads to a yeast infection.
Treating overgrowth of candida requires a significant change in diet as this will starve the excess yeast by eliminating the foods they thrive on.
Symptoms of yeast overgrowth include fatigue, allergies, gastrointestinal problems and a weakened immune system. It is often hard to detect chronic candida as the symptoms are similar to those of other health conditions.

Candida albicans is a harmless yeast-part of the body's natural flora- but when over-stimulated by all-too-common triggers such as antibiotics birth control pills, steroids or hormones too much sugar chemicals or excessive stress this benign yeast can become a debilitating agent that produces toxins which severely affect the body and suppress the immune system.
Statistics indicate that one in every three persons living in the Western world has some form of Candida. With symptoms as diverse as food allergies; digestive disturbances; eczema; hypoglycemia; PMS; persistent fatigue; joint pain; headaches; poor memory; severe itching; athlete's foot; and chronic ear nose throat and respiratory ailments the disease is difficult to diagnose and treat successfully.
Candida is the organism most commonly associated with mycotic (yeast or fungus) infections.Candida is a yeast-like fungus which reproduces by budding and is generally found in very small amounts in the mouth, skin, intestinal tract, and vagina of normal individuals.Ordinarily, the growth of this fungus is kept in check by the immune system and the beneficial bacteria of the body or flora.
Unfortunately, those with weakened immunity, or who consume too much
sugar (which feeds the fungus), and individuals who have taken drugs which
kill the beneficial flora like antibiotics, birth control pills, and long-
term use of cortisone - may develop an infection or overgrowth of this
fungus. This condition is referred to as Candidiasis and the strain of the
organism most frequently involved is Candida albicans.

You can find out very easily whether you have a chronic yeast problem by taking a simple and easy to administer, home stool test. The samples are picked up directly from you and sent to the lab and within a couple of weeks you will know if there is an overgrowth of yeast, or perhaps bad bacteria, and if there is, they tell you what natural and medical agents are beneficial to reduce the overload.
William Crook, M.D., the author of The Yeast Connection, reports that many physicians have used caprylic acid successfully to support overcoming yeast and that it works especially well for those patients who have adverse reactions to anti fungal drugs.
