Systemic Candida infections are usually the result if intestinal Candida infections where the Candida fungus has penetrated the walls and spread to other parts of the body. Toxins have been introduced into the bloodstream which cause a whole range of other symptoms.
Intestinal Candida symptoms include things like bloating, indigestion, perhaps even constipation or diarrhea. But when the infection turns to systemic Candida, then a whole set of other symptoms come into play. These are things like; irritability, memory loss, headaches, depression, poor concentration, anxiety, lethargy, joint pain, sore / stiff muscles, and even more.
The problem with systemic Candida infection symptoms is that they aren’t obviously symptoms of Candida. They can be symptoms of other ailments or conditions. And you’re unlikely to suffer them all at the same time, perhaps the odd one or two. The result is that most people don’t seek any medical help. The problem then is that it becomes much harder to eradicate.
Now whilst the localized symptoms of Candida of the vagina and mouth etc., can be treated with topical creams, lotions etc., systemic Candida infection symptoms need more serious medication such as tablets and even injections. But they are still antifungal, because Candida is caused by the Candida albicans flora which is fungal in nature.
And one of the problems with antifungal treatments is that the Candida albicans flora can become drug-resistant. So a deep-seated systemic infection can be difficult to clear with drugs. In addition they don’t address the underlying conditions that can trigger the Candida flora to ‘overgrow’ into an infection; things such as antibiotics, hormonal changes, poor diet, a compromised immune system, etc.
So many women are now using non-drug alternatives to treat the symptoms, and, a more natural approach in terms of dietary and lifestyle changes. Of course, such things should always be discussed with your doctor first.
