Leaky gut syndrome is referred to a condition whereby minute openings are developed in the walls of the gastrointestinal system. These minute holes allow harmful acidic organisms and other molecules pass through the body’s stream. When this happens the body’s immune system is triggered to produce antibodies resulting in food allergies. Though leaky gut syndrome is not a medically recognised condition, there are strong reasons given by alternative health practitioners for explaining this condition.
One of the reasons why Candida overgrowth becomes a challenging condition to be dealt with is that it affects your immune system. When your body’s immune system is weakened, it creates a further favourable condition for the Candida yeast to grow, which in turn creates a vicious circle. A weakened immune system proves to be a fertile ground for Candida overgrowth. You will therefore need to bolster your body’s immune system if you want to effectively control Candida infection.
