Fungi and yeast feed on decomposing or dead tissues. They exist everywhere; inside our stomachs, on our skin, and even out on your lawn.
When kept under control, the yeast and fungi populating our bodies are harmless and digest what our bodies cannot or do not use.
When we feed the naturally occurring fungi in our bodies to many acid-ash foods, such as; sugar, animal proteins, and dairy products, the fungal populations grow out of control. This condition in known as systemic candidiasis and is marked by fungi invading the blood, gastrointestinal tract, and tissues.
Fungal cultures such as candida excrete large amount of poisons called mycotoxins as part of their life cycle. These poisons must be detoxified by the liver and immune systems. Eventually they can wreck enormous damage on the tissues and the organs and are believed to be an aggravating factor in many degenerative diseases such as cancer, arteriosclerosis, and diabetes.
Insufficient intake of minerals and trance minerals like potassium, magnesium, and zinc may also stimulate candida and fungal overgrowth.
Symptoms of Systemic Fungal Infection:
– Fatigue/ Low Energy
– Low Resistance to Illness
– Unbalanced Blood Sugar
– Mood Swings
– Colitis and Ulcers
– Urinary Tract Infections
– Rectal and Vaginal Itch
Examples of fungal infections or yeast overgrowth are athletes foot, ringworm, thrush, yeast infections, intestinal candida, and toe fungus.
