Candida is just a symptom of a sick gut. It's the canary in the mine.
I wonder if people would have the same problem with 'poop' if it didn't have a foul smell? Research is increasingly suggesting that the bacteria mass dismissively know as 'poop' is a great microbe organ with an extricit web of function throughout the body, not just the gut.
We live in a world of 'anti-bacterial' this and that while many of us are just growing sicker because we refuse to live in harmony with the bacteria that keep us healthy.
