Systemic yeast infections are usually commonly caused by candida albicans or candida tropicalis from intestinal overgrowth. But, other common fungi can cause or mimic the same symptoms of these diseases and conditions. Airborne fungal spores such as asperigillus that is very common in rural and urban communities can also be the culprit. People are exposed in their workplaces and their homes to enormous numbers of these airborne fungi that do cause many respiratory infections and common allergies every year.
Systemic yeast infection and fungal disease do not suffer from a shortage of scientific knowledge, but strangely, the twentieth century has very little knowledge of them. In the Bible, under Leviticus 14 in verses 34 and 35, the talk of fungus and fungi causing disease is nothing new.
Clinical Mycology, by C. C. Kibbler, published in 1995, is a compilation of research reports from 18 prominent physicians from universities such as Duke, Stanford, Texas, and others. In it they clearly state the dangers of systemic yeast infection, candida, other fungi, and their related diseases. Chapters include Bone and Joint, Cardiovascular System, Dermatology, Central Nervous System, Gastrointestinal Tract, Ear, Nose and Throat, Respiratory System, and even Ophthalmology. Why isn't every doctor in the country aware of the risks of yeast and fungus as a cause of many modern diseases?
Some of the diseases a systemic yeast infection can cause are:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- high cholesterol
- crohns disease
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- acid reflux
Most of these diseases have an underlying "unknown" cause. But, when treated with diet and a few supplements, their symptoms can be miraculously managed. The Fibromyalgia Phase I and Phase II diets deal specifically with limiting carbohydrates and processed foods. These lifestyle changes challenge you to incorporate a whole foods approach therefore, limiting the common flare-ups of the illness. "The Plan" as we like to call it here can give you a whole new perspective on life!
