What is Candida?

Candida Treatment in Clarkston

Candida is yeast-like fungus that invades the tissues of the GI track. It thrives on sugars and carbs to survive, growing in a plantlike form and sending roots into the wall of the small intestine. These roots eventually bore holes in the intestinal wall, causing a condition known as “Leaky Gut.” This damages the wall and allows candida, bacteria, food, pollen, environmental pollutants and other material to enter the bloodstream. Candida is then carried throughout the body and takes up residence in parts of the body
