From reading, I understand that 'candida', however people see it, is really 'candida overgrowth' since everyone has SOME candida within.
I often noticed some small crusty/salty deposits just outside the corners of my lips...beginning a long time ago.
I was most pleased when, with Humaworm, they vanished.
I even posted my pleasure, here...and got an 'R' rating because the post spoke of a healthcare success.
However, weeks later, the 'crustiness' came back, a little...then vanished once more.
When I have this 'symptom', it is never painful, because of breaking the skin, as it was before.
And it doesn't last, anyway...only a day...maybe as often as once a month.
The only other thing I've seen that could be construed as possibly 'candida' was the whitish coating on a piece of stool that had blocked my bowel function for a few days...years ago.
Two bits of information from these two experiences...
...It may be true that the body harbors some candida as a protective coating against some kinds of 'toxins', etc.
...It may also be true that the mouth has a continuous 'biofilm' to carry uneeded/unwanted substances out.
If so, I wouldn't have a clue where these 'substances' come from...the stomach, the lungs, the saliva, or anywhere else.
Nor would I know what 'triggers' their release.
I just haven't done enough sleuthing.
Because 'candida overgrowth' symptoms seem to be difficult to eradicate, for others, I would imagine that some have a predisposition to the condition.
So, we all may have different levels of 'symptoms'...and they may come and go.
I tend to think my own have changed and disappeared because of regular rounds of Humaworm.
That's as near of a 'guarantee' as I can give.
I could, I guess, pin down any occurances to particular foods I may consume infrequently, but that would only be for myself, as far as I can tell.
We'd need some kind of an information pool, I think, to see if my 'symptoms' are common to many others'.
CureZone has a section devoted to surveys. Have you looked there?
Perhaps it's time someone ran some surveys on candida and other common ailments.
