Based upon much research, it is my understanding there are two forms of Candida, the inherent non-budding fungus form and the aggressive yeast form.
It appears that the majority of protocols postulate that the yeast form of Candida must be killed until it reaches minute levels where it can once then be kept 'in check' by healthy level of probiotics. However, to me this theory appears be flawed due to the fact that in a healthy patient, the yeast form is not what is being kept in check, rather it is the fungus form that is kept in balance by the trillions of healthy bacteria. Antibiotics
cause the pleomorphism of the Candida into a budding yeast state. If the mycelial or aggressive form exists within the body in even the minutest amounts, once a person has stopped taking the anti fungals, the Candida would then flare up again to it former full blown state. The same can be said for diet, if the yeast form of Candida exists, it would take only little of the wrong food for the Candida to once again become overgrown. This situation which I have just explained is all too common and so frequently reported amongst those who have been treated by Candida cleanses.
Candida must exist in the body in some form due to its inherent role of body decomposing upon death. It can never be eradicated as this would then go against laws of nature. Unfortunately for all too many of us, it is the wrong form. Trace amounts of mycelial cannot be left in the body or they will overgrow at some point, yet they must exist.
My question for those who know then is this, how can one ever truly rid their body of yeast form of Candida and still maintain the fungus form? If one was truly cured, then the occasional Sugar
splurge should do little harm and certainly not trigger a flare up. Sugar
does little to the general populace because they still retain Candida's fungus form, it is only those who have the yeast form living in the body that are affected.
I think the ultimate objective is not so much to kill the mycelial Candida but rather to cause of reversion to its former state. How can this be accomplished?
