There are many doctors who still doubt that it is common for people to develop a condition called Candidiasis from the overuse of antibiotics. Emotionally, doctors readily resist any notion that anything they do can cause a serious health condition.
I have struggled off and on for many years with an overgrowth of the common yeast called Candida Albicans. It can produce many toxins that get absorbed into the bloodstream and can have wide ranging symptoms. Broad-spectrum antibiotics kill bad bacteria and also the good bacteria that keep this yeast in check. Yeasts are unaffected by antibiotics and when the good bacteria dies, Candida has the opportunity to grow unchecked. (Read more about Candidiasis at JigsawHealth.com.)
A new study (via Dysbiosis Blog ) shows the strong link between antibiotics, the growth of candida and then subsequent allergic reactions to mold.
Wonder if your symptoms could be related to an overgrowth of candida? Take this quick online test.
