Symptoms, conditions and causes

What is candida overgrowth?

Candida normally lives in the body and doesn’t create much harm. But, an overgrowth of candida can start causing problems. Candida is a cousin to mold and is related to fungus. 

An overgrowth of candida can cause: 

• White tongue 

• Burning mouth 

• Cotton mouth 

• Dry cracked skin in the corners of the mouth 

• Bad taste in the mouth 

• Fatigue 

• Lowered nutrients (B6, Essential Fatty-Acids, Magnesium, Iron, Vitamin A)

Candida overgrowth can occur after a person takes antibiotics, or after doing something that destroys the gut flora.  Candida, mold, fungus, and yeast all live on carbohydrates. Cutting out sugar and lowering carbohydrates, as in the keto diet, could starve off candida. 

Candida remedies:

1. MCT oil 

2. Fasting 

3. Keto

4. Molybdenum
