Candida Test




The Candida Blood Spot Test

The candida test accurately measures the amount of Candida antibodies IgA and IgG present in a sample of Blood. The higher the levels of candida antibodies the greater the severity of candida infection. Candida is a very common yeast found in everyone’s digestive system, an imbalanced ratio of good bacteria to control candida can cause a yeast infection or candida infection, symptoms often associated with conditions such as foggy brain, fatigue, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), inflammation, skin conditions, thrush and food sensitivities.

About Candida Albicans

Although yeast is found in everyone’s GIT (Castro Intestinal Tract), problems arise when the ratio of friendly bacteria to harmful microorganisms is disturbed. A modern lifestyle including antibiotic and oral contraceptive use,
stress and high carbohydrate diets can either kill the friendly bacteria which then promote Candida growth or encourage Candida proliferation directly.
Multiple mechanisms may explain how Candida yeast infection can result in such a diverse set of systemic symptoms.  Candida overgrowth can give rise to local yeast infection symptoms as seen in thrush, vaginitis, and skin irritations. However, alcohol and toxins released into the bloodstream by Candida can also produce negative effects. These toxins may lead to the characteristic ‘brain fog’ and in extreme cases may cause ‘the drinkless drunk’
(individuals who have high blood alcohol and symptoms of drunkenness without consuming alcohol).
In addition, Candida infections may weaken the immune system and increase the permeability of the GI mucosal lining. These effects can lead to food intolerance and therefore symptoms such as headaches, asthma, muscle, and joint pains as well as irritable bowel.
