The jury is still out about whether, in fact, chronic fatigue syndrome and candidiasis are one and the same. Whatever the facts of the matter, the symptoms are so similar as to be striking. For sure, the two conditions are related. Whether having chronic fatigue syndrome predisposes a person to candidiasis, or whether having candidiasis causes chronic fatigue syndrome is not clear. Both statements could even be true.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Candidiasis
You will see several other strange sounding conditions linked to both chronic fatigue syndrome and candidiasis. Take leaky gut syndrome for example. This horrible condition is exactly what it sounds like. The most likely explanation for the development of a leaky gut is that when candida develops from a yeast into a fungus, it produces mycelia, which are long, wispy tendrils that have the ability to penetrate organ walls. This is how candida can inhabit your body so completely. It can even get into the brain, and this is probably one of the reasons that sufferers experience memory problems.
So, the mycelia probably leave the gut compromised, allowing waste particles and undigested food to breach the lining of the gut and be released into the blood stream. This can make a person feel very ill, exhausted in point of fact. The mycelia are probably responsible for the development of allergies, so common in candidiasis and chronic fatigue syndrome sufferers. It often takes months of dedication to clearing candida for a person to see any definite improvement in leaky gut symptoms.
Because symptoms and problems are so similar, the cure for both chronic fatigue syndrome and candidiasis is basically the same. Dietary and lifestyle changes along with judicious supplements of probiotics and helpful herbs are the best strategies. Don’t reject any logical possibility to help or enhance your immune system though. A many pronged approach is the best way of combating these conditions effectively, and the program is probably going to be slightly different for everyone according to what kind of issues they are dealing with.
