Candida And Weight Gain - Why Are These Two Health Issues Connected?

Mar 8, 2008
Candida and weight gain are like magnets for some Candida overgrowth sufferers. If you're suffering from the symptoms of yeast in your intestines, and you're also putting on more weight than you would like to be doing then this article will explain why, and also explain what you can so to reverse the effects of both of these health issues.

Candida overgrowth in your body will cause you to suffer from sugar cravings. You may already realize that you're suffering from these cravings, or you just think that you're really enjoying sugar at the moment. The truth is, the yeast infection in your intestines is causing the sugar cravings because the Candida yeast loves sugar just as much as you do, and their love of this empty, innutritious food causes you to want it more.

When you're eating the sugar or any sugar based food your feeding the Candida as much as you are feeding yourself. This means that your body is being deprived of something it is craving which forces you to eat more. You have a cycle building here of, you eat more, you feed the Candida more, so the yeast multiplies more and mutates more, and then you crave more sugar so you eat more sugar. While this is happening you're putting on weight, losing your energy which also causes you to want more sugar, and a whole load more symptoms will eventually effect your life.

The Candida yeast that is infecting you has mutated into a fungus, and this fungus will not stop, and if allowed to, it will completely destroy your health. In worst case scenarios the sufferer will become bed-ridden because the Candida fungus will completely drain a healthy body of all energy by pumping it full of toxins.

Cutting all sugar and sugar based foods from your diet is the first thing you need to do to starve the yeast in your body. Starving the yeast will make it easier to kill with herbal anti fungals. Herbal anti fungals are needed as any drug based anti fungals will upset your body's chemical and bacterial balance more than it already is, and this will enhance the environment for the Candida to multiply in.

Depending on the severity of your Candida overgrowth you're probably going to suffer from yeast die off. This will make you feel worse than you do now, and you'll probably think your intestinal yeast infection is getting worse. This isn't the case, and you will feel worse because of the toxins from the dead Candida are now getting into your bloodstream as well as the toxins from the Candida that are still alive.

Repopulating your intestines with friendly bacteria is a big part of your recovery program. These bacteria will help your body fight off the Candida, and they will also strengthen your immune system. Your new diet filled with nutritious foods will also boost your immune system, and your immune system will prevent the Candida re-infecting you when you have stopped your anti Candida protocol.

How well you stick to a strict protocol will determine the speed in which you successfully cure yourself. Most sufferers of intestinal yeast infections that are accompanied by sugar craving and weight gain get expert help. Getting help can be the difference of healing your body in weeks or a couple of months to trying on your own for over a year. One mistake in your program can cause your progress to go backwards.
