Causes of Candidiasis (Candida albicans)

Antibiotics cause key qualitative and quantitative changes in intestinal flora by stimulating the population growth of Candida in the intestinal tract. Apart from direct exposure through medication, antibiotics, which are widely used in livestock, enter our body with meat and dairy products.

Oral contraceptives have the ability to stimulate the development of Candida albicans, as well as corticosteroid medications.

Diets low in nutrients alter the gastrointestinal pH and create an environment suitable for the proliferation of Candida albicans.

Sugar is a well known stimulant of fungal development (fungi), and current per capita consumption in the United States as in Great Britain is 55 kg. year.

Candida can increase its numbers during periods of stress or weakened immune potential.

Dr. Trowbridge imputes the guilt of this for the "excessive use of antibiotics, steroids and birth control pills, coupled to a universal means of contamination. It also refers to "excessive consumption of sugar and junk food. Newborns are at risk of contracting Candida albicans to pass through the birth canal of the mother. " And besides "pregnancy, given the hormonal changes a woman's body tends to stimulate the resumption of proliferation of yeast in their tissues."

Several factors among which include the lack of breast-feeding, stress, exposure to radiation of X-rays, intestinal rhythms, and low levels of acids in the stomach, also affect as you know, to balance intestinal flora. For many, the mere fact of living in a developed country is a cause of chronic discomfort, since, apart from any other circumstances, mankind is now exposed to a host of environmental toxins.

The woman's hormonal system, enormously complex, predisposes to a greater potential for disarray, though men are certainly not immune to the syndrome of Candida albicans. It has been found that 60% of cases occur in women, 20% in men and 20% in children. Trowbridge said that "women have more places where yeast can shelter, and go to the doctor more often, thus taking more drugs that stimulate the proliferation of yeast.
