Candida

Candida is a yeast strain that occurs naturally in the intestines and lives in symbiosis with the rest of the intestinal flora. A good internal balance is very important and disruptions could cause the candida fungus to be abundantly present. If this occurs we speak of a Candida infection.

Candida albicans

 

Candida is a condition caused by a type of yeast (candida albicans), which turns into a fungal form. The yeast is naturally present in the body of virtually everyone. Usually, this does not cause any problems, but when the natural balance between the various bacteria and fungi in the body is disturbed, the yeast can get a chance to grow into fungi. This is called a Candida infection.

 

The treatment of Candida

 

Many factors play an important role in the treatment of Candida. Normal functioning of the intestines and the stomach is important for good, optimal physical health. The microbiome, also known as microflora or microbiota, is usually assumed to be just bacteria. There are also other inhabitants of the microbiome, namely commensal fungi. Commensal fungi are neither good nor bad for the health of the host. Commensal fungi that normally live in our body are much less studied because fungi are the minority of the total commensal organisms in humans. Studying and breeding these fungi is quite difficult because they are different than bacteria. Fungi can also be divided into symbionts or pathobionts, either, desired or undesirable. Candida albicans occurs naturally in the intestines and does not cause problems in normal circumstances, but as an opportunistic micro-organism, it can rapidly transform and disrupt the balance if given the chance.
