Candida has a distinct growth pattern. People may experience some or all of these progressing symptoms if overgrowth is not addressed.
Candida grows in the body’s mucus membranes where its always present at low levels: the mouth and entire digestive tract, skin and genitals. Candida is usually kept in check in these areas by our beneficial bacteria, but antibiotics and a high-carb processed diet throws this out of balance. Candida begins to overpopulate these areas of the body causing the beginning of the infection. Symptoms manifest in the mouth, nose, skin, sexual organs, and respiratory system. Often they get little to no attention because they are common amongst people today and still considered somewhat ‘normal’.
Candida takes over the gut and passes into the blood stream. It does this by out-competing beneficial microbes and releasing harmful metabolic wastes (mycotoxins) both of which inflame the intestinal wall causing leaky gut where Candida can break through and enter the blood supply. Once in the blood, this is when Candida really starts to progress into a fungal infection spreading it’s invasive fungal colony. Issues become more chronic and symptoms emerge throughout the body. Symptoms may include all of symptoms of level one as well as level two.
Candida colonies can take root in other parts of the body such as muscle, bone, eyes, and any other area receiving blood flow. At this stage your behavior and mental health begins to be affected as the fungus is now likely spreading beyond the blood-brain barrier and establishing in new locations throughout the body. Stress on our body’s immune system and eliminative organs causes deep fatigue. Symptoms may include all of level one and two.
The fungal infection becomes systemic, overgrowth spreads to new areas of the body including major organs. Severe health issues become entrenched unless reversed through gut rehabilitation, deep cleansing, detoxification, and eliminating Candida.
If Candida is not addressed at the critical stage of Level 4 it can progress into a fatal condition, a systemic infection throughout the entire body. At this point all organs are shutting down and the body has become a highly toxic environment, creating fertile ground for serious and life threatening conditions such as cancer. If the issue is not addressed the individual may die.
