Description

Candida Albicans is a yeast that is naturally located in the body and has been there since birth. Many people do not experience any problems with this yeast since the body’s immune response keeps it from overgrowing.  

Overgrowth can be caused by:

•  a high carb diet

•  antibiotics

•  high alcohol intake

•  high-stress level

•  Diabetes

•  Taking oral contraceptives

Too much growth can cause the body to develop an allergy. Once an allergic response has occurred, one might have difficulty consuming foods that contain yeast. 

Some foods that could trigger an allergic reaction are:

•  Citric Acids

•  Dried Fruit

•  Mushrooms

•  Buttermilk, yogurt, or synthetic cream

•  Cereal products

•  Most bread and baked goods such as cinnamon rolls, biscuits, and muffins

•  Alcohol

•  Premade gravy and stocks

•  Aged meats 

•  Tofu

•  Soy sauce and miso

This list is not all-inclusive. Many other foods could contain yeast.  

Common symptoms of a Candida Albicans allergy could be:

•  Difficulty breathing

•  Confusion

•  Abdominal swelling

•  Nausea

•  Cramps

•  Joint pain

•  Hives

To determine the appropriate follow-up, positive allergy test results should be discussed with your physician.
