I swear this is one of the most eye-opening books I’ve read about yeast (fungus) and what it is really doing inside our intestines (colon). I’m sharing some of the notes I’ve taken so far with hopes to bring more awareness to this serious and deadly issue. And to emphasize why I firmly believe that a healthy diet alone may not be enough to combat against this. Good quality probiotics, in my opinion, are absolutely essential in our EVERYDAY lives.
It is a mistake to consider Candidiasis (Candida albicans, Candida) a simple yeast infection. IT IS NOT. It is a fungus that may have originated as a yeast, but has become a fungus and learned how to attack cells. As a fungus it does not behave like a yeast or yeast infection. — Jack Tips, N.D., Ph.D.
Leading pathologists now estimate that a minimum of 80% of our population has been significantly affected by yeast, and it seems that almost every week new books or cookbooks on yeast infection—or Candida albicans—appear.
How can any organ, or gland, or immune system function correctly if its very life force is being drained by a parasite? How can anyone feel well, have lots of energy and stamina, or look forward to tackling the problems and challenges of life when his or her body systems are struggling and straining to work, but can’t because they are too busy fighting an invasive army of yeast?
The more yeast (fungus) the person has growing in their body, the more serious the symptoms of illness and disease.
Candida yeast is a form of mold or fungus and is characterized as an ascomycete, or a sac fungus. Sac fungi grow by sending our spores that are encased in hard protective coatings. These coatings enable them to lie dormant in an ascus (sac) for indefinite periods of time. There they survive intact and bide their time until conditions are ideal for them to grow. Once they are stimulated to grow and change from their yeast (benign) form to their fungal (malignant) form in your body, their ultimate goal is your destruction and eventual disposal. It can even mutate and change DNA, alter their appearance and alternate between two body forms.
Candida also has the ability to convert to single cell fungal spores (called conidia) to elude the immune system’s attempts to destroy it. This microscopic conidia form allows the fungus to spread via the bloodstream and lymphatic channels and infect organs, glands, and tissues throughout the body.
Once conidia has invades—highjacks—a human cell it can lie dormant or it can reproduce more fungal cells, depending on the body’s environmental state. But the scariest fact is that the fungus, now inside the human cell, can incorporate its DNA with that of the host cell, creating a hybrid cell—a fungal/human hybrid cell. THE FUNGAL DNA THEN BECOMES DOMINANT AND TRUMPS THE HUMAN DNA…meaning the fungal DNA is now in charge. This leads to devastating gastrointestinal diseases (autoimmune disorders) and other horrifying illnesses.
In our bodies yeast—fungus— lives by fermenting (digesting) sugars and carbohydrates (other environmental toxins can also contribute to their growth) and if allowed to spread uncontrolled, it can literally break down our human bodies into a soft pulpy mass as well.
Candida, fungus, leaky gut, is obstinate and devious. It can morph and mutate quickly to whatever form is necessary for its survival. In the event it is attacked by the immune system of the host, it can transform itself into smaller and undifferentiated elements to elude both the host’s immune system and the doctor’s diagnostic evaluations. If need be, it can even revert to its smaller and more benign form—the spore—which cannot be attacked, hiding until the danger passes. This feature makes it difficult to identitfy…but more importantly, THAT is what makes it so DANGEROUS. The yeast—fungus—goes from living on dead tissue, to living on LIVE tissue, and in the process has learned how to attack!
A good visual is a peach bruise (or any piece of fruit), you’ll see that yeast from the air is attracted to it and starts colonizing the bruised area first—the area of damage. From there is spreads to the surrounding tissue and eventually consumes the whole pieces (or other fruit) most of which had been healthy.
In nature, molds, fungi, and yeast are the great recyclers, the garbage disposals of the planets. They are the principal decomposers of every ecosystem! We all harbor small colonies that live peacefully in our intestinal tract/colon. Our bodies have accepted them as harmless tenants, aside from assisting in digestion—until the end of our lives. At death, the yeast swings into action and performs the one major job we know it has—that of decomposing and recycling our bodies back into the earth. Dust to dust!
Because we have strayed far from the more natural life and the way we were designed to live, the yeast/beast has been artificially and prematurely stimulated to escape from the intestines where it was meant to stay—leaky gut!—and has instead gotten into the blood stream…the body’s highway of life. This leads to ALL the cells of our bodies, spreading and growing more colonies, and doing its foreordained job, that of decomposing us. Candida albicans has been shown to have the ability to invade virtually EVERY TISSUE IN THE BODY with the one exception of enamel in teeth. It is literally trying to decompose and recycle our bodies while we are STILL ALIVE!
