The ubiquity of fungal problems is something that mainstream medicine will vehemently deny; only people with extremely compromised immune systems, such as chemotherapy patients, are at risk for severe fungal infections.
Most fungal problems are superficial, and require little more than over the counter medicine, or occasionally a prescribed anti-fungal. So many will say.
Fungus has the ability to infect nearly every tissue in the body, except for the enamel of the teeth. There is a volume of research that links fungus to a spectrum of diseases, from the very boring and inane, to the very serious. Fungal infections have been linked to all kinds of symptoms; these symptoms are often mistaken for other kinds of diseases.
Consider the case of eye floaters.
Eye floaters are spots in vision that appear like black or grey specs, strings or cobwebs that move through your field of vision. (1) They are usually associated with aging, but in some instances, a large increase in the number of floaters in your vision can be a sign of a retinal tear or retinal detachment – both of these things require immediate attention and could result in blindness.
However, even this somewhat obscure, painless, and often harmless symptom has a fungal link. The newsletter What Doctors Don’t Tell You (Volume 16, Issue 11) notes that, “Floaters have also been linked to candidiasis, an overgrowth of the yeast-like fungus Candida albicans, and may simply be a symptom of this system-wide problem (Postgrad Med J, 2001; 77: 119-20). Candidiasis can be controlled by eliminating sugar and yeast from the diet, which is certainly a safer and simpler solution than surgery.”
If an obscure, relatively harmless symptom mostly associated with aging can be linked to fungus, what about more serious problems generally associated with aging? Do you just have to accept symptoms as part of the aging process? Perhaps some changes to your diet and lifestyle, with the addition of some anti-fungal supplements, would prove otherwise.
