You may not realize it, but there is an organism that lives on everything you touch and eat.
It lives harmlessly in your mouth and gut. Unless you have taken antibiotics, eaten restaurant food, or you eat a lot of carbohydrates…
Then it can get very nasty indeed.
It can create symptoms from chronic fatigue and weight gain to abdominal bloating, flatulence, prostatitis, vaginal and toenail infections and even clinical depression.
You see this parasitic fungus known as Candida yeast (Candida albicans) is a great mimic; it is just one of the several hundred species of microorganisms in your gut that are yeast-like or yeast-related.
In your gut, these organisms ferment sugary foods to produce carbon dioxide, which causes bloating and flatulence. It also produces alcohol and other complex chemicals that irritate the lining of your gut.
In fact, the effect of this chemical hodge-podge has been described as the same as a “Mickey Finn” (hallucinations, disorientation, and foggy brain). It’s like the person is drunk most of the time, without consuming any alcohol. That’s where the term, “slipped him a Mickey” came from.

My friend, Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby has sometimes been called on to testify in court that a Candida overgrowth is capable of putting a person over the legal limit for driving… without ever having drunk a drop of liquor!

Candida also has the effect of making your gut go into painful spasms and less able to assimilate food. Left unchecked this fungal infection creates havoc on your immune system and can even produce irritable bowel syndrome.
I believe it is scandalous that conventional medicine still refuses to recognize Candida as a serious medical condition, other than just thrush of the mouth and genitals.
Yet it is known that Candida becomes a serious menace when the immune system is compromised.
What conventional doctors don’t tell you is just how much junk food, pesticides, heavy metal poisoning, emotional stress, and medications damage our immune systems.
When the immune system suffers, Candida has a heyday! It can become an overwhelming infection, with a dizzying array of hard-to-define symptoms.
Here’s the thing…
Candida overgrowth has now reached epidemic proportions because of the large amounts of sugar and refined carbohydrates we typically consume in our diets.
Other major causes are the widespread use of antibiotics, the contraceptive pill and convenience food, which all increase your risk of developing this terrible fungal infection.
