Candida is a complicated issue that a lot of people deal with and it can be difficult to diagnose and treat. In this two part episode we’re answering your questions like; How do I know if I have a candida overgrowth and what can I do to eliminate it? Why do candida and other intestinal infections keep coming back? How do I know when the infection is really gone? Listen in as Tony, Will and Kinna break down the answers and discuss how digestion and body chemistry affect candida overgrowth.
In this episode you’ll hear about:
- What is candida really?
- How the immune system keeps critters in check.
- What tests can confirm a candida overgrowth.
- How your diet can affect a candida overgrowth.
- Why candida is often found with other digestive issues and why it’s important to fix those underlying problems.
- The role calcium plays in the function of the immune system.
- How body chemistry and diet can affect histamine issues.
- How some pathogens can thrive on keytones on a low carbohydrate diet, and how that can make an overgrowth worse.
- How it’s important to monitor self tests when introducing probiotics.
- Why imbalances can create an environment for fungal and bacterial infections to thrive.

On our Kick It Naturally show, we cover how most symptoms, or health issues, can have a variety of underlying causes. When the goal is to improve a symptom or health issue, the first step should always be to look at your own chemistry to figure out what may be causing the problem. The almost free 4-week Digestion Course that we talk about in this episode is a great way to learn how to run simple tests you can do at home, and get an idea of imbalances that may be occurring in your body chemistry.
Once you understand the imbalances you may be dealing with, you can listen to our episode about that topic to better understand how different imbalances can cause that symptom or health issue. If you are seem to have a strong imbalance that is commonly the underlying cause of the issue you’re dealing with, now you have a place to start. If you can do the work to improve that imbalance, you may find that the symptom could improve right along with it.
