When this balance is altered by reducing the good bacteria, yeast, being very opportunistic, will spread and take over as a candida infection or as a fungal parasite or candida fungus (mold), triggering numerous bad side effects and diseases.
The most common cause of candida albicans is antibiotics and their overuse…
Dr. John Pitt, on Penicillum in 1979 stated: “It is very ironic that this humbled fungus, hailed as a benefactor of mankind, may by its very success prove to be a deciding factor in the decline of the present civilization”.
Simply stated, antibiotics are dangerous mycotoxins, fungal metabolites, that kill bacteria, even the good bacteria that exist in our intestines and necessary for good health. This upsets the delicate balance of the yeast to bacteria ratio in your digestive system, giving the yeast fungi the upper hand in creating a yeast infection. Minus the good bacteria in your system to control fungus, it spreads and becomes a toxic fungal vermine known as candida http://www.yeastinfectionnomore.co.uk/.
Penicillin is a good example of a fungal by-product called a mycotoxin. It was found out from a mold (mold is a fungus) experiment that Dr. Fleming was performing on a bacteria colony. This individual added some mold from bread to the colony and observed that the fungus killed all the bacteria; producing the substance he later named penicillin. The number one cause of yeast infection was given birth to in 1928 and is so over-prescribed today that yeast infection is a growing epidemic.
Another cause of yeast infection and the devastation of stomach flora are anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen and naproxen…
These kinds of two drugs are common over the counter medications that many people take. Very few people realize what they are doing to their health by taking them. America has turned into a nation of drug dependent people. Not really a night goes by when you don’t see a TV commercial for some kind of drug promising some miraculous cure for something. These drugs all lead to the destruction of bacteria and are a reason of yeast infection.
Another reason for yeast infection, theorized by some doctors, are birth control pills given to women. In the natural menstrual cycle of women, right after after on about the 18th day, both progesterone and estrogen decline to suprisingly low levels. At the same time estradiol starts to rise into menses and then these three human hormones return to normal. Most birth control pills contain estradiol in significant amounts and add to the problem.
The hormone link as a cause of candida albicans for women is very common. Virtually all women that experience from recurring vaginal fungus infections will tell you that they do indeed get flare-ups at the third week of the cycle.. Fortunately, there are now natural herbs and supplements to treat and balance the hormones to get rid of this problem. Like colloidal silver as a minerals supplement.
In line with the 2001 Asthma and Allergy Report, the first immunodeficiency syndrome was determined in 1952. Since that time 95 more have been recognized with new conditions being found out every day. The report also states that increased use of antibiotics in infancy is contributing to increased hazards of allergies. What is interesting to me is in the 1950’s antibiotics came into wide propagate general used in medicine. Carry out you see a relationship here?
