Bloated, No Energy, Depression - Candida ?

mals69, Jan 6, 12:43pm
Recently discovered have had candida for years.

Candida is a yeast like parasitic infection.

Can cause the symptoms in the title and more .

Sign you may have it is a thick white coating on your
tongue (cottage chesse looking if real bad)
Spit test into a glass of water in the morning and if your
saliva sinks to the bottom after awhile you may have candida.

Here is the first link that came up in google on Candida, host of material
out there including more detail on the spit test.

Thought I'd share this incase others have it, robbed years of my life,
got loads more energy already and the Candida is not fully gone yet.

It's a yeast infection.It's not parasitic.

It's a fungus, not parasitic. Who told you it was a parasite?

I googled the defintion of Candida and the following comes up
first in google search results:

a yeast-like parasitic fungus that can sometimes cause thrush.

Expanded version of the source Merriam Dictionary:

: any of a genus (Candida) of parasitic fungi that resemble yeasts, occur especially in the mouth, vagina, and intestinal tract where they are usually benign but can become pathogenic, and have been grouped with the imperfect fungi but are now often placed with the ascomycetes; especially : one (C. albicans) causing thrush

Candida is parasitic like in that when Candida gets out of
control in the body it takes over and multiplies, loves sugar
and willl take what it wants before the body gets what it

Candida Albicans is the most common type of yeast infection found in the mouth, intestinal tract and vagina, and it may affect skin and other mucous membranes. If the immune system is functioning optimally, this type of yeast infection is rarely serious. However, if the immune system is not functioning properly, the candida infection can migrate to other areas of the body, including the blood and membranes around the heart or brain. (1)

Candida is a fungus that aids with nutrient absorption and digestion, when in proper levels in the body. When it overproduces, the typical candida symptoms may appear. In the digestive tract, left unchecked, it breaks down the walls of the intestinal lining and penetrates into the bloodstream. This releases by-product toxins and other toxins from your system, causing leaky gut syndrome.

When you body’s natural pH balance is upset, the candida can grow out of control, creating a systemic problem. Good healthy bacteria and a properly functioning immune system are essential when fighting this stubborn infection.

Candida Overgrowth Syndrome, or COS, is the term used when candida has grown out of control in your body. Make no mistake: This is a chronic health condition. Individuals that have never experienced a serious yeast infection can find they have developed new sensitivities, allergies or intolerances to a variety of foods. These foods include dairy, eggs, corn and gluten.

No mention of parasite at all here (copied from the above link you posted)

Candida and Parasite Connection - Probacto
Jun 27, 2013 - Candida yeast infection usually comes with intestinal parasites breeding in the body. But are there warning signs that you and I should be on the look out for? Fortunately, as the naturopathic physician Skye Weintraub points out, symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, constipation, chronic fatigue, muscle .

I think you are confused, yeast AND parasites can go together. It's parasitic LIKE, not an actual parasite

mals69, Jan 7, 12:46am
Where did I say it is a parasite ? You the only one in
here that has used the word parasite.

tazdevil38, Jan 7, 12:48am
Pretty sure you mentioned it right here in your first post lol

mals69, Jan 7, 12:50am
Yeah and you know more than google lmfao

tazdevil38, Jan 7, 12:55am
I do know that a yeast infection is not a parasite lmao

mals69, Jan 7, 1:02am
I had already said parasitic like before your rant about
my confusion. You have clearly missed the message
of my opening post, now be a good girl and jog on!
Nitpickers that do not have the intelligence to pick
up on the word like have no place here!

tazdevil38, Jan 7, 1:08am
Anger in response is typical of someone who has been proved wrong and won't admit it. I'm going to go and enjoy the rest of my night :)

Has been fun lol

Do not think a law degree has your name on it anytime soon.

You said “yeast like parasitic infection”.
You probably meant to say “parasitic-like yeast infection”. But you didn’t.

jayemtoo, Jan 7, 8:25am
The second line of your original post definately says that it is a “yeast like parasitic infection” which reads as it being parasitic. Not sure if that is what you intended to say but it does say that it is a parasitic infection.

Again, I directly copied and pasted the
definition that Google gave me.
