A frequent question we receive is: “Is Candida a parasite?” The answer is yes. Candida is considered parasitic because it takes nutrients from the host body without offering any beneficial return. However, it’s important to note that Candida is a naturally occurring organism in many individuals. It’s found in about 30 percent of women’s vaginal areas as a normal organism. Just like many microorganisms present in our body, Candida exists in a delicate balance.
There are numerous misconceptions about Candida. Some believe that it should be completely eradicated from the body. However, this perspective is flawed. Candida, though parasitic, coexists in a balance with various yeasts and bacteria inside our body. The real challenge isn’t about eradicating Candida, but maintaining a healthy balance. When factors like an unhealthy lifestyle, poor diet, excessive stress, or continual intake of certain medications come into play, the balance is disrupted, giving Candida an upper hand.
For optimal health, it’s crucial to recognize the cause and effect of our actions. Continually trying to eliminate Candida without addressing the root causes is a futile approach. Instead of aiming to eradicate Candida, our focus should be on achieving and maintaining a balanced internal environment.
