Got Yeast?

Candida Albicans is an aggressive fungus commonly found in the birth canal, intestines and mouths of healthy humans, yet can become problematic after the usage of antibiotic, contraceptive pills and HRT, stress or consuming sugar excessively. It is a very common yet almost always undiagnosed condition that many of us are suffering with. Many of us have no idea that this gut yeast can be the underlying cause to most of our health issues.

The list of symptoms is long and not every one is discussed below. If you suspect that Candida may be contributing to your health problems then the following questionnaire should give you some indication of whether your suspicions are well founded.

The grand total score will help you decide if your health problems are yeast connected.

Scores in women will be higher due to the use of the contraceptive pill, but symptoms may show for men equally due to exposure to hormones and other drugs via the water supply.

Yeast connected health problems are almost certainly present in women with scores over 180 and in men with scores over 140.

Yeast connected health problems are probably present in women with scores over 120 and in men with scores over 90.

Yeast connected health problems are possibly present in women with scores over 60 and in men with scores over 40.

With scores of less than 60 in women and 40 in men, yeasts are less apt to cause health problems.
