When a normal inhabitant of our
intestines, skinpores and other cavities, known as Candida
Albicans, grows out of controle, we are in deep trouble. Belonging
to an extended family of more than sixty members, Candida
Albicans naturally occurs with eight or nine other Candidas
in primates and humans. Normally without causing any problems.
The explosive rise of the use of
refined sugar and starch in our daily diet has created an
acidic intestinal environment, that promotes the growth of
yeasts while hampering bacterial growth. The widespread and
repetitive intake of anti-bacterial drugs and the worldwide
use of hormonal drugs such as oral anticonceptiva and steroid-based
anti-inflamatory medicins, are the root-cause of an intestinal
disbalance in many people.
This floral disbalance and acidic
condition in the intestins triggers a unique quality of Candida
Albicans. It mutates from a yeast into a fungus, and as a
fungus it reproduces through spores: extremely small, living
particals, with full potential for growing into either yeast
cells or fungal threads, depending on the acid-alkaline balance
of its environment.
In a healthy person, yeast cells,
fungi, bacteria and amoebe can't pass the intestinal wall,
and if some happen to slip through, the immune-system's fagocytes
will destroy them immediately. The size of fungal spores allows
them to freely pass the intestinal wall and since their outer
surface has no receptors for our antibodies, the immune-system
does not recognize them.
These spores travel with the bloodstream
to all places in the body and hatch into fungi or yeast-cells,
depending on the level of acidity in that particular tissue.
It takes five to ten years for most symptoms to develop into
a debilitating condition with a widely diverging range of
complaints, such as chronic fatigue, sinusitis, allergies,
headaches, mood swings, weakness, ...
Diagnosing candidiasis by regular
chemical bloodtests is quite difficult, since it sometimes
takes twenty years for the immunity system to develop significant
amounts of antigens for Candida Albicans. A direct and clearcut
diagnosis of Candida infection is offered by HLB, a
visual microscopic analysis of a few drops of dried blood,
and LBA, i.e. life blood analysis.
Rudi has worked with these forms
of blood analysis for twelve years and confirms that Candida
infections occur (at least in the Netherlands) on an epidemic
scale. In this lecture Rudi demonstrates the afore mentioned
diagnostic methods, explains the symptoms from a biochemical
point of view, and comments on several curative treatments
and diets. He also offers suggestions on how to avoid yeast-
and fungal overgrowth.
