(NaturalNews) It's an unfortunate truth that millions of people across the world suffer from seemingly unexplainable and unpleasant symptoms like chronic tiredness, recurring yeast infections and digestive issues. Candida infection might not even enter their thoughts.

Fatigue, headaches, rashes, bloating and yeast infections. All these symptoms have been linked to an overgrowth of Candida albicans - a common fungal organism naturally found in each one of us as a part of our intestinal flora. The problems arise when we eat too much sugar, take antibiotics for a prolonged period of time, or have a weakened immune system.

All these factors can ultimately lead to Candida infection - a condition that plagues so many people worldwide - yet most of them are unaware of it due to the lack of information presented in the mainstream media.

What Causes Candida Overgrowth?

Candida infection can occur when there's an imbalance between good and bad bacteria in the digestive tract. It is common knowledge nowadays that antibiotics kill not only the bad guys - they also eliminate the good ones such as bifidobacterium and acidophilus, the bacteria that keep Candida under control. Another common culprit is a diet high in simple carbohydrates and sugars - good bacteria thrive on fiber, while the cells of Candida albicans feed on glucose.

"Candidiasis has been around for decades," explained Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D. in her article published on NaturalNews. "Ever since we began to use antibiotics but neglected to replace the good bacteria that are destroyed along with the bad."

Treatment of Candida Infection

Once the good bacteria are wiped out, there are several things patients can do to restore bacterial dominance in the intestinal tract. First off, it's usually necessary to make certain dietary changes. That means following a healthy, low-glycemic diet plan that doesn't nourish Candida and other pathogens in the body. Green vegetables, low-glycemic fruits, seeds, nuts, and high-quality organic animal proteins all work for a Candida-fighting diet.

Dietary modifications like these can bring relief quite quickly, but some people suffering from Candida infection will need more thorough treatment that involves probiotics and natural antifungal supplements. Probiotics help replenish the healthy bacteria in your gut, and antifungals work on the principle of destroying the Candida cells.
