Candida is such a difficult condition to diagnose because it can affect each individual in a different way, on a different part of their body, in a way that may even be unique to that person.
Dr. Leon Chaitow says in his book that, "Candida is possibly the least understood, most widespread cause of continuing ill health currently in our midst." Think of all the people suffering from the above symptoms, think of the number of times that you yourself have suffered from them, and you can see how this might be true!
Remember, your doctor is relying on you for an accurate description of your symptoms, so make sure you tell him everything!
A Candida misdiagnosis can actually encourage Candida to grow further. If your doctor believes that you have IBS, Crohn's Disease or Gastroenteritis, he may prescribe the anti-inflammatory Cortisone. This introduces steroids to the gut, which will increase the growth of Candida colonies.
IBS - abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, indigestion
Arthritis - joint pain
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - constant fatigue
Diaper Rash - rashes and itching in infants
Athlete's Foot - Fungus on toenails
Crohn's Disease - abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, indigestion
Gastroenteritis - abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, indigestion
You also may find yourself suffering from hair loss and or + all of the following symptoms if you have Candida:

Persistent cough, Mucus in throat, Sore throat, Sinus congestion, Chronic post-nasal drip, Flu-like symptoms, Hay fever symptoms, Sinusitis, Asthma.
EYES AND EARS
Eye pain, Itchy eyes, Sensitivity to light, Blurred vision, Bags under eyes, Ringing in the ears, Ear infections.
Recurring yeast infections, Recurring UTI’s (urinary tract infections), Cystitis (inflammation of the bladder), PMS & menstrual irregularities, Fungal rash.
Frequent colds and flu, Allergies, Sensitivities to food, fragrances and chemicals.
Inability to lose weight, Water retention, Weight loss.
Headaches, Heart palpitations, Chronic body pain and/or joint pains, Muscle aches and stiffness. The simple most effective way to know if you have a yeast problem is by your symptoms. "
1. We made the relation between Candida and the Miasms Psora,described by Dr. Hahnemann ( The Founder of Homeopathy). He described and research about this condition for many years. Homeopathy has the studies and the remedies that balance the immune system and controls the overgrowth of Candida based on individual symptoms. Since Candida will show in each individual in a proper way, each individual will need a unique remedy. Homeopathy The best and more effective way to treat the symptoms described are through a Homeopathy treatment, made specific for your condition. The homeopath doctor has been trained and has studied for many years the conditions described as PSORA. There are in homeopathy several classic remedies for that condition. We developed Vida Oral Spray, a combination of Homeopathy remedies with property anti-Candidat he stimulate the defense mechanism against Candida and also release the stress.
2. Help to boost your defenses adding Vitamins & Supplements, such as B -Complex and Probiotics such as acidophilus and yogurts on a daily basis is one of the best defenses against yeast overgrowth and it promotes a healthy colon.
3. Take care of your Diet, the diet it is an important factor in reducing Candida symptoms. A diet high in sugar is a heaven for yeast because it will let it grow.Follow a Candida diet: It's crucial to eliminate sugars and refined foods to reduce overgrowth. Initially, even fruits and high carbohydrate foods may need to be eliminated and then reintroduced to the diet later as you get better. Meat, eggs,and low carbohydrate vegetables are what is best to stick with and a small amount of nuts, seeds, and low sugar fruit
The Human Microbiome Project, funded by the National Institutes of Health, released a set of 14 studies in the journals "Nature" and "PLOS.
The research techniques used for this were DNA sequencing to identify these organisms and show their diversity and abundance in humans, and their functions in the body.
See the articles and the research below:
The Human body is home to almost 10,000 species of microbes.
For the first time, researchers have mapped the community of microorganisms of the human body, such as bacteria and fungi.
The micro-organisms examined were derived from 242 women and men. The collection was made in different parts of the body such as skin, mouth, gut and vagina.
Until then, only bacteria from the gastrointestinal tract had been cataloged by MetaHIT project, involving eight countries.
The researchers concluded that almost 10,000 species of micro-organisms make up the ecological communities in our body.
They also showed that each body part has a different population of microbes, each with its function - in the case of gut micro-organisms help digest food.
The project also showed that each person has a unique microbiome with different types and quantities of bacteria to perform the same work. A high or low amounts of the same bacteria does not mean that a person is more or less healthy.Medicine is making progress to understand the function of microorganisms in our health.
James Versalovic, project researcher and chief of pathology at Texas Children's Hospital, USA, says that most of the microbes in the body do not cause disease.
Versalovic says that defining the microbiome of a healthy adult and knowing what they are and what are the microbes that inhabit the human being was the first goal of the Human Microbiome Project.
Now, with genetic material from whole communities of microbes, the next steps will be to compare the microbes of healthy people with patients to understand how problems develop and create new drugs.
One study has shown that the MetaHIT who has less diversity of bacteria in the gut tends to be obese and to have liver fat diets and respond worse.
"This is just the tip of the iceberg. What will be interested is to see how the two genomes - human and microorganisms - interact," says Vasco Azevedo, professor of Biological Sciences, UFMG.
