Yesterday, I stumbled across Yeast Infection Advisor, an excellent website containing TONS of information regarding Candida and how to fight it. I highly recommend checking it out. The author sites numerous medical references to back up his articles.
Up until recently, I wasn't convinced of how serious Candida can become if unchecked and untreated. However, through more research and talks with others who have, or have had Candida, I've realized this condition can become life threatening. It is highly beneficial to have a clear understanding of what is happening in the body. This article on leaky gut syndrome painted a shocking mental picture of what goes on in the body when I eat "foods" that are heavy in starch, sugar and chemicals.
Anyway, don't take my word for it. Go check out the website and see what you think!
