Yeah, almost as if the candida is trying to make copies of something our lips-skin has; trying to use a resource there; or trying to merge and become part of the skin on the lips but then our bodies reject that skin, its incompatible with our DNA, because it is not made up of our DNA alone, i.e. that white skin has 2 sets of DNA: human & fungus.
Why on the lips? The lips are 'red', fungus seeks iron to reproduce and it knows that it can get it on a longer basis near the warmest, mostly wet part of the mouth. And in a strange way that fungus believes that it is protecting you from a higher order fungal invasion, such as molds(all molds are fungus-but not all fungus are molds!)
But what do I know, everyone who gets tested, says their doctor says it is everywhere in their body not just the lips. But I wonder what they mean 'it is present in the body', surely our family and friends also will show some amount of yeast in their body, I mean even vagrants and their lips are fine! Do these tests for candida say it is significantly higher in EC patients?-Than I will understand why one would want to kill it off internally and not want a higher count of fungus than people with 'normal' lips.
