Re: Where is the candida located?


For what it's worth, the clinical article below keeps referring to the "presence of C. albicans within the large bowel." Going by memory, I recall that the small bowel, being directly after the stomach, is flush with HCl acid, pancreatic enzymes, and liver bile, all intended in part to kill bugs. I suspect this makes the small intestine relatively "sterile" (I'm using the term "relatively" VERY loosely) when compared to the large bowel, which is meant more for final absorption of nutrients, rather than digestion, which the small gut performs. The concept of fermentation, such as when lactose-intolerant folks drink milk, typically refers to unbroken-down-sugars-gone-wild in the large intestine. Stomach acid and other bug-killing compounds have been diluted or neutralized by then, making the large intestine a veritable bacteria free-or-all when compared to the environments before it. So, for many bugs, the end of the gut might be a more hospitable home than any place just after the stomach. But, candida being as robust and tough as it is, it could be happy anywhere along the gut for all I know.
