Who hasn’t heard of one of those “low carbohydrate” diets that have been promoted over the last decade?

Virtually everyone reading this blog I would think.
The bottom line though is that a low carbohydrate diet is just that– a diet. And its purpose is to help someone lose weight.
For many folks that’s a good enough reason to do a low carb diet, but many are finding out there’s another great reason to be on a low carb diet. And that reason is a fungal infection within the body. Or more precisely a candida yeast infection.
Chances are you’ve never heard of a candida yeast infection. That’s understandable– most people haven’t, even though they may be suffering because of it.
Perhaps the most common affliction that’s connected to a candida yeast overgrowth would be a vaginal yeast infection… But keep in mind this just isn’t a “female” problem. Men can also suffer from a candida yeast overgrowth. How so you ask?
· Irregularity like chronic constipation and diarrhea
· Nail fungus
· Athlete’s foot
· Gas and bloating
· “Foggy” thinking
· Fibromyalgia like aches and pains
· Food sensitivities
· Oral thrush
· Various types of skin rashes
· Itchy skin
A candida yeast problem can affect men, women, young and old. You may be asking what a candida yeast overgrowth is precisely. Here’s how it occurs according to many experts…
In our intestinal tract are two “camps”, the bacteria “camp” and the fungus “camp”. Here are a couple things to keep in mind.
Many believe that bacteria are bad– that all bacteria are bad. The fact is bacteria within our bodies serve a very useful purpose. The first is that it helps break down the food we digest. The second is that the bacteria help keep the fungus under control, and that’s good thing.
Here’s why fungus is such a problem…
Many confuse fungus and bacteria, but they are totally different organisms. I’ve already talked about bacteria, and here’s what fungus does– Well not much of anything other than eat the carbohydrates (sugars) we put into our bodies and the expel waste product into our bodies.
We then suffer a number of potential allergic reactions to that waste product the fungus expels. Here’s on it all works.
1. We have candida yeast fungus living in our intestinal tract
2. We eat lots of foods that are heavy in carbohydrates
3. The fungus dines on those sugars and expels waste product
4. We have an allergic reaction (and maybe even more than one) to that waste product
5. We potentially suffer one if not more health challenges due to what happens in steps 1 through 4
Take a look at that look of potential health issues again. Are you suffering with any of those? If so you might want to consider some sort of plan to bring the candida yeast fungus within your body back under control. And a key component of that plan could be a low carbohydrate diet.
