7 Signs You Might Have Candida Overgrowth

Feeling a little under the weather? Can’t put your finger on what is causing a seemingly random collection of symptoms? If you tick a few (or more!) of the symptoms below, you may like to speak to your doctor or a natural health professional to check whether you might have a candida overgrowth. First things first though, you may be asking…what on earth is candida?

Candida is a fungus and a very small amount of it lives in your mouth and intestines. Its job is to aid with digestion and nutrient absorption but, when overproduced, candida breaks down the wall of the intestine and penetrates the bloodstream, releasing toxic byproducts into your body. This can lead to many different health problems, ranging from digestive issues to depression. 7 common candida overgrowth symptoms include;

  1. Skin and nail fungal infections
  2. Feeling tired or suffering from chronic fatigue
  3. Digestive issues such as bloating, constipation, or diarrhoea
  4. Skin issues such as eczema, psoriasis, hives, and rashes
  5. Irritability, mood swings, anxiety, or depression
  6. Vaginal infections , urinary tract infections, rectal itching or vaginal itching
  7. Strong sugar and refined carbohydrate cravings
