If the medical condition known as a severe yeast infection is not treated then it becomes even worse, creating a more serious, harmful condition than the yeast infection started out as being. Yeast infection occur because of the fungus known as monilia or candida albicans.
An infection can affect the mouth, the ears, the skin, the gut, and the vagina. Because of its many complications, a yeast infection in the gut is considered to be the most sever infection out of all of them. This is also known as intestinal permeability.
When the candida fungus enter its second stage and begins to develop hypha or roots, openings occur in the gut wall and this is called leaky gut. The hyphae will then grow and spread through the walls of the bowel, allowing the dangerous microorganisms to get through.
This syndrome of having a leaky gut can cause many immune and inflammatory symptoms such as multiple sclerosis, food allergies, inflammatory bowel disease, Chron's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and eczema.
The following are symptoms that occur when you have a leaky gut.
You can have allergies to food.
You can feel bloated, or experience cramps or gas after you consume food.
You may have diarrhea or constipation.
You might experience headaches, be very irritable, or not be able to concentrate.
Your face may swell when you smell something that is strong.
A lot of times, an infection in the gut occurs because of medicines or antibiotics that kill off probiotic flora that is good for you. An infection in the gut is a very severe infection and may be caused by one of these things:
Drinking more alcohol or taking in more caffeine than usual.
Consuming more carbohydrates that are refined than usual such as soft drinks, cake, candy bars, white bread, and many other things.
If you have been taking too many antibiotics which will destroy all the good bacteria in your body, allowing candida to grow and create an infection.
Many people who have too much candida in their body will be given some antacids and instructed to use treatments that work on other yeast infections, but this will not work for someone that has a candida yeast infection in their gut.
There is not a quick and simple way to cure a leaky gut. It will take years to get rid of the infection and the symptoms of it. The best way to treat a yeast infection as severe as a leaky gut is to change your life completely and your diet while under the supervision and care of a medical doctor.
