Could Candida Yeast Overgrowth Be Contributing to Your Symptoms?




Candida, as I love to say, "joins the party". It is a fungus, like mold, but it is different species in that it is a yeast. So, it could be thought of as mold's cousin. There is often a component of Candida yeast overgrowth when there is mold toxicity and/or gut dysbiosis in the body. Candida overgrowth can present a variety of symptoms, which can differ depending on the area of the body affected. Here are some common symptoms:

Digestive Symptoms:

  • Bloating

  • Constipation

  • Diarrhea

  • Gas

  • Abdominal pain

Oral and Throat Symptoms:

  • Oral thrush (white patches in the mouth or on the tongue)

  • Soreness in the mouth

  • Cracking at the corners of the mouth

  • Persistent cough or sore throat

Skin and Nail Symptoms:

  • Fungal infections of the skin and nails

  • Itchy skin

  • Rashes

  • Red, irritated skin

Genital Symptoms:

  • Vaginal yeast infections (itching, discharge, and discomfort)

  • Urinary tract infections

  • Itching or burning in the genital area

Systemic Symptoms:

  • Fatigue

  • Headaches

  • Joint pain

  • Brain fog (difficulty concentrating, poor memory)

  • Mood swings, anxiety, and depression

Respiratory Symptoms:

  • Chronic sinus infections

  • Nasal congestion

  • Persistent coughing

These symptoms can often be non-specific and may overlap with other conditions, making diagnosis challenging.

If you've had any of these symptoms, book a consult to discuss what testing and supplements would be useful for you!
