The number one risk factor for candida is having completed a full round of antibiotics, steroids or hormonal birth control pills. A diet comprised of foods containing sugar, processed carbohydrates (expecially those with gluten) and meat give the candida a perfect breeding ground for overgrowth and eventually, infection if not addressed. Alcohol, caffeine, stress and exposure to toxins all weaken the immune system of the human body and hinder the ability of the gut to fight off harmful gut flora including candida albicans.

Remember making paper mache figures in elementary school? The mixture was made of flour and water. After dipping newspaper strips in the flour ‘glue’, they covered the ballon and were allowed to dry. Imagine that mixture in the gut and the sludge that it creates!
