1Candida Albicans The Quiet Epidemic Special Thanks to Barbara Stuart, APRN, NP-C, CENIntegrative Medical PractitionerPresented by Melody Covino
2What is Candida albicans? A benign sugar fermenting yeast.Integral part of intestinal ecology in small amounts.One of 600 strains of Candida.Can cause disease when overgrowth occurs.What is Candida albicans?
3Ecological Balance in GI Tract Candida is a yeast that is normally harmless as a single-celled fungus.If it changes into a mycelial form it can take root in tissues and colonize.Three main organisms: bacteria, virus, fungus. Immune system is always working – we only get sick when it becomes overwhelmed.It can cause localized problems (vagina, throat, nails, bladder, skin, etc.When it colonizes in the gut – toxins are released into the bloodstream.When the roots of candida grow into the intestinal lining they burrow microscopic holes into the gut – causing leaky gut.Ecological Balance in GI Tract
5What causes Candida to grow? Imbalance of GI yeast vs good bacteria.Immune dysfunction:Exposure to toxic metals.Internal toxins from poor digestion.StressHIVReduction of good bacteria in the gut:Consumption of refined carbohydrates, alcohol and caffeine.AntibioticsImmunosuppresive medications.Upset in intestinal pH:Acid blocking medications.Decreasing digestive enzymes and HCL as we age.Vit A and zinc are both critical for normal cellular immunity.Candida may be consuming the deficient nutrients, oxidizing the essential fatty acids and leaving toxins in their place.What causes Candida to grow?
6Candida By-products Proliferation of Candida Releases waste products called mycotoxins (poisons) and oxalates.These further weaken the immune system.Candida By-products
7Auto-Brewery Syndrome Candida Toxic Waste = AcetaldehydeAffects Central Nervous System.Interferes with hormone metabolism:PituitaryThyroidAdrenal glandsIncreased blood alcohol levels.Brain fog symptomsAuto-Brewery Syndrome
8Candida By-products Digestion of proteins = beta-alanine. Lowers Taurine levels.Taurine increases uptake of magnesium & potassium inside our cells.Taurine binds toxins and removes them from the liver.Beta-alanine is absorbed through the intestinal lining and secreted by the kidneys.It competes for reabsorption with the animo acid taurine in the kidneys and this lowers taurine levels.This is a significant problem because taurine enhances the intracellular uptake of magnesium and potassiumIt also helps to bind toxins and remove them from the liver.Clinically observed that patients with candidiasis of the GI tract may have problems absorbing magnesium and potassium, despite oral supplementation.There is a urine test that measures the amount of metabolites or by-products of candida metabolism.Candida By-products
9Heavy Metals affect Candida Silver amalgam dental fillings have 53% mercury!Mercury has an antibiotic effect.Difficult to control yeast overgrowth.The antibiotic effect kills off the good bacteria in the gut making it difficult to keep candida under control.Heavy Metals affect Candida
10Candida affects all ages & gender Women are more susceptible!Women are 8 times more likely to have a yeast syndrome.Vaginal yeast infections:With AntibioticsDuring pregnancyUsing Oral contraceptives (OCP)Progestin from OCP:Changes vaginal liningCauses release of yeast- feeding sugar into bloodstream.Candida TransmissionSexuallyMother to newbornThrushDiaper RashCandida Questionnaire for you to score yourself.Candida affects all ages & gender

15Candida = Allergies Mycotoxins in the bloodstream! Normally, the lining of the intestinal tract prevents mycotoxins from entering the blood.ToxinsMicroorganismsUndigested food particlesThe body launches an immune reaction that causes the allergic response.Candida = Allergies
16Healthy live blood cell analysis vs unhealthy Leaky gut
17Candida Affects All Systems Candida toxins in the bloodstream filter through the liver.From there, they proceed to other organs.Brain, Nervous System, joints, skin, etc.If impaired liver detoxification ability these toxins will not be eliminated and can initiate states of chronic disease.Inadequate nutrition, poor cellular health and/or toxic overload impair detoxification.Candida Affects All Systems
