Candida infections can casue a wide range of health conditions

Candida is a common microorganism that we normally acquire within a few days of being born. It is considered to be a typical part of the microbial flora that inhabits us.

When conditions allow it to grow out of control, these tiny organisms can be responsible for many different kinds of health conditions.

The average person has about four pounds (around two kilograms) of microorganisms living in their intestinal tract. For good health, at least 80-85% of these organisms need to be beneficial and less than 15-20% should be detrimental. (more…)
