Candidiasis: The Great Imposter Pandemic

From the Desk of Dr. Howard Robins at The Healing Center in New York City…

The Problem

New patients come in each day, all with different health complaints and suffering in their own special way. No two are the same. Most have been suffering for years and have tried everything—almost everything, that is—to get well. While many treatments and medicines have helped and offered hope—at least for a while—they eventually fail to stop the never-ending discomfort, pain and suffering.

Each doctor has told them that they have this or that condition or disease. They show the entire range of classic symptoms of it, don’t they? Then why didn’t their treatments work? The answer is that the true underlying cause was missed or ignored. Ignored because it wasn’t recognized as the real “felon,” the real reason for their/your problem.

The Cause

Since the first time you had even one dose of antibiotics as a child or eaten red meat or chicken that wasn’t organic (most contain traces or more of various antibiotics), your good, healthy bacteria in your intestines were killed along with the harmful bacteria that needed to be destroyed. This allowed yeast, the different types of candida (also known as monilia), to overgrow in your intestinal wall as well as bad bacteria to move in and inhabit your intestinal wall, continually secreting toxins into your system.

The Results

So, what real difference does this make? Well, after years of research, scientists have discovered that by allowing the yeast(s) to overgrow, your immune system and body becomes weakened. Weakened to different degrees and in different ways, as each of us is unique, causing a wide variety of symptoms often leading to a misdiagnosis.

What’s worse is that while most doctors know the condition exists, they “don’t see the forest because there are too many trees in the way!” They either don’t believe or don’t recognize the relationship between your health problems and the yeast overgrowth. The symptoms, conditions and illnesses are so varied that it’s hard to believe that this one cause could be the problem. Believe it or not, this is just a partial list of symptoms that have been associated with this horrible illness (found on numerous anti-candidiasis websites):

  • Constant tiredness, excessive fatigue and exhaustion

  • Foggy brain/trouble concentrating/cognitive impairment

  • Anxiety/depression

  • Mood swings/irritability

  • Poor memory

  • Learning difficulties

  • Hyperactivity

  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

  • Anger outbursts

  • Irritability

  • Headaches

  • Intense cravings for sugars, sweets and breads (carbohydrates in general)

  • Abdominal gas and bloating, stomach pain, digestive problems

  • Acid reflux

  • Headaches/migraines

  • Cravings for alcohol

  • Skin problems (skin infections, eczema, psoriasis, acne, itchy skin)

  • Vaginitis

  • Rectal itching

  • Diarrhea/constipation

  • Sinus inflammation

  • Pre-menstrual syndrome

  • Hormonal problems

  • Low sex drive

  • Inability to become pregnant

  • Dizziness

  • Persistent cough

  • Muscle weakness

  • Sensitivity to fragrances and/or other chemicals

  • Thrush

  • Athlete’s foot/fungus nails

  • Sore throat

  • Chronic pain in muscles/ joint pain

  • Herpes outbreaks

  • Environmental allergies

It’s hard to believe that this one problem can cause all these different health issues. Regardless, do you suffer from one or more of these symptoms or know someone who does? Please, don’t give up hope! 

The Answer

Finally, the answer to this persistent health dilemma consists of a necessary combination of three things: 

  1. Temporary dietary change. An anti-candida diet is an important element in combating this pesky health issue.  

  2. Medical grade probiotics.  High quality, doctor formulated Doctor’s Biome contains 15 strains of probiotics that have been carefully chosen from clinical studies. 

  3. Intravenous Ozone Therapy. Most importantly, in very resistant cases, Intravenous Ozone Therapy has been proven to be effective in eliminating candida from the body.
