5 Stages of Candida Overgrowth and what to do about it
by Patty Yu, Jul 20 2016
One question I sometimes receive about candida overgrowth is why certain individuals need multiple rounds of CCWS Candida Cleanser. Some people need more than one bottle while others are set after one treatment. It’s important to understand that Candida-related disorders occur in sequential stages. Having symptoms of advanced / systemic overgrowth could mean that a longer cleanse is needed, while early-stage symptoms can usually be resolved more quickly.
I want you to know that we will always have a background level of Candida yeast present in the digestive tract, however the key is to prevent Candida from growing out of balance, mutating in to fungal form, entering the blood stream and taking over other body systems. If overgrowth is allowed to progress, the symptoms and problems become more chronic and, sadly, dangerous.
Watch my video to see whether any of your issues fall within the 5-stages of candida overgrowth, and what to do to reverse the trend.
Where do you fall on the spectrum of candida overgrowth severity? Here are the key symptoms associated with each stage (see the video for a full listing):
Stage 1 symptoms include bladder weakness, bad breath and body odor, vaginal yeast infections, severe PMS, gas and heartburn, new allergies, unexplained anger/rage and, of course, strong sugar and alcohol cravings.
Signs of Stage 2 are unexplained weight gain, ear infections or tinnitus, chronic joint pain or arthritis, acid reflux, headaches or migraines, bladder and urinary tract infections and potentially endometriosis.
Emerging issues with Stage 3 are mental confusion, forgetfulness, inability to concentrate, dyslexic behavior, muscle twitching, IBS, hypoglycemia, thyroid issues and possible infertility.
With Stage 4, endocrine and/or adrenal system problems can occur, severe constipation, full-body muscle weakness or hives.
And people unfortunate enough to reach Stage 5 encounter whole body infestation with impact on all organs, impacts that are potentially fatal.
These compounding issues are intense to consider, and that’s why I’m here to help. I’ve been through many of these terrible issues myself personally, and I am now on the other side and healthy thanks to Candida Cleanser and the GAPS diet.
