Brain-fog: Is Your Mind Writing Checks Your Body Cant Cash?
by Gloria Gilbère, N.D., D.A.Hom., PhD., Wholistic Rejuvenist
Are you, or a loved one, a victim among millions affected with a series of disorders that is rapidly becoming a trash can diagnosis known as brain-fog, ADD/ADHD, Fibromyalgia, Depression, or Multiple Allergic Response Syndrome? These conditions are generally a result of an unbalanced intestinal environment.
Candida, a yeast, lives naturally in our intestinal tract, causing little harm until the intestinal ecology becomes toxic; then, Candida multiples at an accelerated rate, causing chronic health consequences.
Yeast is a fungus, a microscopic-size, parasite-type organism that lives and thrives in dark, warm, moist environments, specifically the mouth, digestive tract and vagina. It is a single-cell microorganism that develops feeding tubes called hyphae, which grow directly into the intestinal walls causing them to become porous, allowing toxins, undigested proteins and carbohydrates to flow through the bowel wall, only to be absorbed into the body and bloodstream; clinically known as intestinal permeability, commonly known as leaky gut syndrome.
The most common fungal toxin is acetaldehyde (yes, similar to formaldehyde) a major waste product of the yeast organism. Acetaldehyde, a poisonous metabolite of alcohol, becomes a toxin in the liver, overburdening it and making it incapable of adequate neutralization is it any wonder our thinking is foggy?.
When the liver is already compromised, as with over-use of antibiotics, over-consumption of refined sugar and carbohydrates, alcohol, tobacco, immune system disorders (Leaky Gut Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Arthritis, and Gulf-war Syndrome), the liver is not capable of protecting us.
Causes of Candida yeast overgrowth
Repeated antibiotic use Birth Control pills Cortisone drugs Nutritional deficiencies Overly acidic pH Vaginal transmission Elevated progesterone levels NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen)
Consequences of Candida yeast overgrowth
Brain fog Reoccuring infections Chronic fatigue Nail fungus Depression Mood swings Insulin Resistance "Short-fuse" ADD/ADHD Anxiety Adrenal 'burn-out" Muscle weakness Allergies Recurrentprostatitis Jock itch Inner thigh rash White coated tongue Intestinal bloating/gas
Steps for Recovery
Dont allow Candida yeast overgrowth to be responsible for robbing you, and those you love, of quality of life, eliminate it now, naturally.
