Candida/Yeast is Systemic
When most people hear the word yeast they think only of vaginal yeast. It is much, much more than that. In fact, if a practitioner thinks to test for yeast they may only swab the vaginal area. If it is not found they may tell you that you do not have it. This is not often the case.
Yeast is systemic! This means that it is present throughout the body wreaking havoc in the organs, tissue, joints and central nervous system, including the brain. Meninges are layers of tissue that cover the brain and spinal cord. Yeast/fungus is known to cause inflammation of the meninges, therefore, causing inflammation in the brain and the rest of the central nervous system.
Candida is present in both males and females. For many it is that large “Buddha belly” we see in so many people. This is a strong indication of Candida. For others they may simply have behavioral problems, fatigue or headaches that no one seems to be able to account for. This may be in a child that does not have the typical big belly associated with Candida. Other important factors to look at are gluten intolerance or other food sensitivities or allergies.
The GI tract is often damaged so severely by Candida that holes have been created in the lining of the intestines. The spores or babies of the yeast have legs on them that bore holes through the intestinal lining. This causes leaky gut.
This “leaky gut” allows undigested food and toxins to reach the bloodstream. These toxins flow to any organ or tissue they can. Leaky gut also causes food allergies. The undigested food is seen by the body as a foreign agent and antibodies are created against them. Foods once tolerated suddenly create allergic reactions. You may have already become aware of foods that seem to create symptoms in your child. A great product to help heal those holes in the lining of the intestines is Glutagenics by Metagenics.
