Do You Have Candida? 18 Candida Symptoms

by Kelley Herring on March 23, 2014

Do crave carbohydrates? Do you ever feel fatigued or have brain fog? Have trouble with sinus infections?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have a Candida overgrowth and can benefit from a candida diet.

So what is Candida? And what are Candida symptoms?

Candida is a group of yeast-like microorganisms that live throughout our bodies. Most of the time, Candida lives in balance with other microorganisms and is completely harmless.

But when our natural flora fails to control Candida due to a diet that’s high in carbs and sugar, an overgrowth can occur. This can cause a wide range of seemingly unrelated health effects.

The good news is that following a candida diet can get your flora back in balance and alleviate the discomfort associated with Candida.

Candida Symptoms

Candida symptoms can be very broad, and seemingly unrelated. Take a look at the wide variety of symptoms fungal overgrowth is known to produce.

  1. Fatigue
  2. Depression and mood swings
  3. Learning and behavioral disorders
  4. Carb cravings
  5. “Brain fog”
  6. Memory loss
  7. Itching
  8. Sinus infections
  9. Food intolerance
  10. Oral thrush
  11. Vaginitis
  12. Athlete’s foot
  13. Ringworm
  14. Jock itch
  15. Diaper rash
  16. Canker sores
  17. Kidney and bladder infections
  18. Gastrointestinal disturbances – IBS, colitis and GERD

So how does this harmless little single-celled yeast become a vitality-sapping pathogen?

Quite simply – our modern diet and lifestyle. In fact, most of the foods we eat and the substances we take in create an ideal environment for Candida.
