Many factors lay the unhealthy groundwork for candidiasis. These factors include stress, poor diet, a suppressed or compromised immune system, toxicity and the extended use of anti-biotics, alcohol, steroids and birth control pills. Each of these factors can produce an imbalance of microorganisms in the intestinal tract by killing the “good bacteria” and leaving an overabundance of “bad’ candida cells.
The cells that normally keep candida in check-the NK and puffer cells, which can kill a yeast cell in 1/100th of a second, are overwhelmed, and the candida then takes over. It proliferates in the gut, penetrates the intestinal wall and is carried by the circulatory system throughout the body. At this point, the candida becomes systemic: it infects organ and muscle tissues and compromises the entire immune system.
Once the immune system is compromised, it may no longer be able to sufficiently repel invaders. This can result in allergies to chemicals, pollens and foods. Also, it is believed that toxins from candida cells and protein molecules develop an antigen/antibody reaction, which can cause even more allergic reactions. Interestingly, immune deficiencies can be either caused by candida (as stated above), as well as well as result in candida. People with immuno-deficient diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome and psoriasis, find themselves even more susceptible to candidiasis. This is because their weakened immune systems have difficulty keeping the balance of the ‘good bacteria’ which is the first line of defense against candida overgrowth.
The problems and diseases of systemic yeast infections can manifest in many ways. With systemic candida the yeast fungi release micotoxins (poisons) into the body affecting different parts of the body in seemingly unrelated ways. For example, one person, one person may get adult acne, the next arthritis, and another heart disease. Candida and their mycotoxins can cause all of these illnesses and many more.
Once the infection becomes systemic, it is almost impossible to get rid of it until the immune system is restores to normal function. Many have experienced this frustration by taking products to kill the yeast, only to have it come back for another round. That is where Aqua Flora comes in.
The candida epidemic
With his research beginning in the 1970’s, Dr. William Crook later estimated in his book, The Yeast Conection, that 80% of the population has an overgrowth of Candida albicans (candidiasis). Often, it can be a very deep-seated soft tissue condition that can affect virtually every organ of the body as well as muscle tissue. Men. Women. Children and even babies can have candida. Authorities who speak about the problem of Candida albicans overgrowth, point to factors such as stress, poor diet (especially those high in simple sugars and refined carbohydrates) toxicity, alcohol, steroids and birth control pills, and the extended use of antibiotics as being leading culprits in the epidemic.
Long term sufferers know the cycle well. They have tried and ultimately found that anti fungals and supplements are ineffective. This is because antifungals keep candida from reproducing by introducing a foreign protein into the protein receptors in the yeast’s cell wall. However, before the yeast “family” has completely died out from its inability to reproduce, it creates an enzyme to breakdown that specific protein- and then the candida is back. Over time, the integrity of the intestines can be affected, potentially leading to conditions such as irritable bowl syndrome (IBS), diverticulitis, leaky gut syndrome and various other immune deficiencies that can lead to many other diseases.
Aquaflora Candida High Potency 9 is the most important product you can take in your battle against candida.
What makes Candida High Potency 9 so powerful?
There are many products on the market that use beneficial bacteria like Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria to restore the intestinal flora; however, they are incomplete because they cannot kill every type of candida. By blending homeopathy with our unique process, Aqua flora Candida High Potency 9 addresses ALL 9 STRAINS of candida known to exist. No other product on the market can make this claim.
In addition, Candida High Potency 9 has 3 flower essences to provide emotional support during the healing process. Those who have tried to get rid of candida in the past understand the significance of this through their experience with elimination diets and “candida die off.” Most of the symptoms produced by this ‘die off’ are typical candidiasis symptoms, such as intense fatigue, cravings, headache and cramps; however, symptoms are often more extreme and can be quite disruptive to daily living. While die off can lead to positive results, the emotional and physical stress that accompanies it can be unbearable. Now add “dieting’ on top of that and this creates a whole new level of stress. With the flower essences already included in the formula, you can achieve a powerful sense of well-being during recovery that minimizes and, in some cases, eliminates the die-off symptoms, and makes managing your candida control diet easier.
