The RISKS of Systemic Yeast Infection

Apr 25, 2008
Systemic yeast infection happens when candida evolves from its usual state of yeast to become a sort of fungus invading the blood circulation, liver and urinary tract. Also known as an "opportunistic" infection, it is a grave overgrowth condition where Candida penetrates into the deeper body areas.

Compared to local yeast infection subtypes, systemic yeast infection is a real challenge to identify and eradicate.

Three levels of candidiasis exist, ranked according to severity:

1. Occasional yeast infection (for example, oral thrush, vaginal candidiasis, candida balanitis), occurring in three quarters of the population, especially women and infants, at least once in a lifetime.

2. Chronic or recurring candidiasis, possibly a symptom of more serious problems such as an impacted immune system.

3. Systemic yeast infection, affecting the whole body and not just one area to provoke symptoms such as fatigue, lethargy, headaches from migraine, debilitation, dizziness, sensory disorders, muscular pain, breathing disorders, gastrointestinal problems like oral Thrush, diarrhea, constipation and rectal itching.

Conditions encouraging systemic yeast infection are those occurring when the immune system fails to master Candida and/or when there are high levels of sugar/acid or toxins in the intestinal tracts. When the immune system does not keep the upper hand on Candida growth in your body, the condition turns into one of systemic candidiasis. When Candida species, represented naturally in warm moist parts of the body (vagina, mouth and intestines), multiply without restraint, yeast infections are the result.

Upon systemic yeast infection happening, Candida starts to invade all body parts and organs, including the digestive system, respiratory system, eyes, liver, esophagus, skin and blood. Serious "opportunistic" infection may have a high impact on the well-being and daily activity of an individual.

Moreover, different external factors can exacerbate a systemic candidiasis already in progress. These include foods on which the yeast feeds, antibiotics, contraceptive pills, tight clothing and stress. There is no unique cause for systemic Candida infection, which can be triggered by different internal situations, for example a fragile immune system, low numbers of white blood corpuscles (granulocytopenia), a poor quality diet and lifestyle, neglect of a local yeast infection and the disappearance of positive bacteria.

With this in mind, thinking about holistic remedies for this medical condition may be the best course to take. Previously the assumption was that a yeast infection was localized and could be removed with anti-fungal medication applied topically. Due to several causes or factors or a group of conditions and circumstances, it is now widely understood that excessive yeast multiplication in the body is the result of a deeper internal problem of balance.

An important point is that overall holistic treatment is not the same as simple changes in diet. Nonetheless, certain foods (particularly sugars and refined carbohydrates) nourish the yeast that is favored by high-sugar environments. Moreover, large amounts of probiotics, vegetables (green ones in particular) and healthy fats (such as coconut oil and avocado) are required to reconstitute a healthy intestinal flora. Although it may already be highly beneficial for systemic yeast infection patients to cease eating candy, products made with flour and refined flour (examples include glutinous grains, pasta, bread and cereals), as well as reducing dairy products, alcohol, fruit and soy products (most of these contain anti-nutrients), this is only one part of the whole solution.

Dietary changes such as these can bring immediate alleviation, but it is in together with a full program of holistic treatment for systemic yeast infection (such as herbal cures, homeopathic remedies, changes in diet, lifestyle and detoxification) that this works much better than most classical treatments that only act superficially for this condition. It is the holistic approach that enables the treatment of the hidden reasons for systemic yeast infection.
