If you have four or five yes answers, you may suffer with a yeast-related illness. If you have six or seven you are a Candida infection victim. If you have eight or more, you almost certainly in need of medical treatment for chronic, generalized candidiasis or for unusual illnesses that occasionally mimic the condition and for which proper medical diagnosis and care should be sought.

If left untreated, C. Albicans can wreak havoc throughout the body. It so severely debilitates the body that victims could become easy prey for far more serious diseases, such as acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, myasthenia gravis, colitis, regional ileitis, schizophrenia, and possibly death from Candida septicemia.

In the mid 80′s, the writer of this article suffered from this disease. She quit writing, and had become disabled. As you have seen in the quiz, this is also a mentally taxing disease. Here are her own words concerning her afflictions.

“I became a horror to live with. My mood swings were comparable to or maybe well beyond the Demon at Six Flags! At one time I was even suicidal. I thank GOD I was given the opportunity to discover what was wrong with me. I knew I was not a schizophrenic, but I certainly displayed all the symptoms. I knew I loved my family, but could no longer nurture them when I had fallen apart.”

Healing ourselves is quite a job that can be accomplished with knowledge and diligence.

If you have taken “THE QUIZ”, (see above), and determined that you need more information, hopefully this, and the following sequence of articles, will help you determine if you need to seek medical attention, or can treat yourself. We are not qualified to give medical advice, but will help you find the information you need.

Candida Albicans is a type of yeast like parasitic fungus. It is a one-cell fungus, from the phylum of plants, with no chlorophyll. It enters the intestines, genital tract, mouth, esophagus and throat, having the capability reproducing without requiring another organism.

In an un-healthy balance, when the yeast has over multiplied in the body, it weakens the immune system, and causes an infection known as candidiasis.

This is not just for women. Yeast diseases affect men and children alike, sometimes more dramatically in children. Candidiasis can affect many parts of the body, the most common being the mouth, ears, nose, gastrointestinal tract, and vagina.
