Understanding Candida

  – Candida is a type of yeast or fungus that can overgrow in the body.

  – Normal levels of Candida are present in the mouth, digestive tract, and other locations.

Factors Leading to Candida Overgrowth

  – Antibiotics are a significant cause of Candida overgrowth by suppressing beneficial bacteria.

  – Approximately 80% of antibiotics are used in agriculture, impacting the food chain and human health.

Vegetarian Concerns

  – Even vegetarians may indirectly consume antibiotics through plant growth in soil treated with animal manure containing antibiotics.

Preventing Candida

  – Adopting a ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting to run the body on ketones.
