Have you experienced any of the following?

Chronic fatigue, food cravings and intolerances, headaches, muscle aches, lack of libido or impotence, diarrhoea, or constipation?

Bladder/kidney infections, bloating, bad breath, heartburn, acne and or skin infections, PMS, nail infections, vaginal infections, depression, irritability, or poor concentration?

How does the test work?

The accredited laboratories based in Germany will examine your sample under a microscope to see if there’s Candida growth. Then they’ll take a small sample and let it incubate for a few days so that any yeast in your stool can grow.

Candida albicans the most common fungal species that can cause human disease. It can exist in a benign form in various parts of the body such as your skin, genitals and especially the digestive tract and is an integral part of our body ecology.

In immune deprived people however, Candida can multiply and change into a mycelial form (where they take root in tissues and grow) upsetting the ecological balance in the digestive tract.

Normally the ‘friendly’ good bacteria keep Candida and other fungi in check, but when it’s allowed to grow unchecked it can cause problems throughout the body. Candida is a kind of parasite that feeds off the human body and pollutes the system with its toxic waste.

Antibiotic use, birth control pill, HRT, Steroids, a poor diet high in refined carbohydrates and sugar, prolonged stress, lack of hydrochloric acid in the stomach can all contribute to the cause of Candida.
