 Candida—Eliminating Yeast/Fungal Overgrowth 
 
The following is one in an ongoing series of columns entitled From Fatigued to Fantastic by . View all columns in series
Have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, or even sinusitis or spastic colon? You probably have overgrowth of yeast or Candida. Though poorly understood by most physicians, treating this underlying infection can have profound health benefits!

Immune dysfunction (i.e., being more susceptible to infections) is a common part of both Fibromyalgia and CFS, and is becoming more common in the overall population as well. In earlier articles, we have discussed how to diagnose and treat chronic viral and antibiotic sensitive infections. The most common and important infections to treat in CFS and Fibromyalgia are yeast, fungal and Candida infections (I will treat these as a single infection for this article). Unfortunately, standard medicine does not recognize fungal infections unless they affect the nails, skin, hair or groin areas—or they are in the blood and can kill you. Because there is no test to clearly diagnose overgrowth of bowel or sinus Candida, many doctors say it doesn't exist. Reminds me of the little boy who thinks he's invisible because he's covered his eyes…

That there is no blood test does not mean there is no way to tell if you need treatment. I recommend the Candida/yeast/fungal treatment for most people who have ANY of the below problems:

1. CFS/ Fibromyalgia—As I have discussed in lectures to thousands of health practitioners, if someone has CFS/FMS, presume the Candida is present and treat for it.
2. Chronic sinusitis—which is usually caused by yeast.
3. Spastic colon/irritable bowel syndrome.
