What is intestinal Candidiasis?
The candida albicans is a genus of single-celled fungi also called yeasts that normally live inside our digestive system. A healthy balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut helps to keep us healthy. Our intestinal flora prevents the growth of this fungus, but when it is disturbed, it triggers the infection, causing chronic intestinal candidiasis.
Chronic intestinal candidiasis is a common and under-diagnosed disease that presents with bloating, abdominal pain, gas and other digestive disorders. In addition to being annoying, intestinal Candidiasis can be dangerous because in the environment where it occurs it can come into contact with other substances and bacteria from the intestine and trigger a series of effects, such as the reproduction of Candidiasis in other areas of the body (genitals, mouth or nails). It can also worsen other diseases that the patient already suffers from. In this case, a treatment of Candidiasis.

The continued use of antibiotics or prolonged periods of hospitalisation can damage our intestinal flora, but there are also causes such as drinking tap water, consuming excessive carbohydrates and refined sugars and flours.
In addition, a nutrient deficiencies or changes in digestive secretions can disrupt the balance of our intestinal flora.
