What Is The Difference Between Candida Albicans And Candida
Thank you for checking out my tutorial. Here'sa question I got from a guy in the States. What is the difference between Candida albicansand Candida? Probably no difference because most people when they talk about Candida oryeast infections, they talk about the organism, Candida Albicans. After doing many stool tests,I can tell you there's 19 types of Candida that commonly affect a human organism?.But when I say quot;commonlyquot; some I only see maybe 1 in every 400 to 500 stool tests. The common ones I see would be these: CandidaAlbicans, Candida Krusei, Candida Parapsilosis, Candida Glabrata, and Candida Tropicalis,so they'd probably be the five I would commonly
see. Occasionally, we get rare ones like CandidaLyxosophila or Candida Maltosa or Rugosa. These are more rare strains of Candida, sothey're picked up in the stool test every now and then. But the very common one I would see wouldbe Albicans in probably 89 percent of all stool tests, and I do see a bit of Glabrataand Krusei. When I was in Australia, I saw more of the Tropicalis. The Candida Tropicalistend to be more difficult to eradicate than the Albicans. Albicans is the one that wecommonly associate with gastrointestinal yeast infection issues.
It's just like with bacteria. We've got manydifferent types of bacteria. We've got gram negative. We've got gram positive. We've gotall sorts of beneficial, lots of beneficial. We've got many forms of parasites that wedeal with. So just like with Candida, there's no one particular strain, but the treatmentis basically the same. For example, to get rid of Tropicalis, therecord? is anywhere up to 20 times more difficult than to get rid of Candida Albicans.Many patients I see with chronic yeast infections have got multiple Candida strains, and thatbecomes a little bit more difficult to eradicate. It's like having different kinds of criminalsin an organization. Some of the criminals
are pretty dumb and stupid and they get caught.Other criminals are very smart and some of them are super intelligent. They can alwayshave different disguises on that if they're captured constantly. You've probably seensome movies like that, some pretty good films like that. Other criminals are plain dumb. They'll leavetheir wallets at the crime scene. They'll leave guns lying around and they'll have photosof themselves taken with the CT cameras. These are stupid criminals, and we've got some bacterialike that, and I find Albicans quite stupid, too. But the problem with the Albicans isit can mutate and change and evade capture,
particularly when the person hasn't reallybeen eating a good diet for a long time and been taking a lot of antibiotic drugs andcommercial antifungal drugs. Candida is quite clever in evading capture.I may have told you in a previous tutorial that Candida can release a particular poison calledgleer? toxin around itself that actually neutralizes the immune system around it, soit can be quite smart to do that. And when it dies, it releases all these glycol proteinsinto the circulation that attract the immune system to it rather than the Candida. It'sa little bit like if you see some of these jets that fly and they've got a heat sensingmissile going straight up their tail, they
can release these trailers or showers of sparksand the missile will hit those and blow up instead of the aircraft. Candida will do a similar thing. Bacteriadon't tend to think as clever as that. Candida is a little bit a cut above a bacteria whenit comes to intelligence, I think. And then we've got viruses, which are even higher abovethat which tend to be quite clever in how they can almost completely avoid being destroyed. I hope that answers your question with a bitof ramble on there for the difference between Candida and Candida Albicans. They're probablythe same. That's what the person's talking
