Define Candida Esophagitis

The Science Behind Candida 1

The Science Behind Candida By JeffreyMcCombs, DC This is a transcript of The Science BehindCandida webcast with Jeff McCombs, founder of The McCombs Plan For Health, Vitality Transformation.Candida Definition When we talk about Candida, it's good to havea definition of Candida, and it's also good to have an understanding of the human body.That, in itself, is pretty much impossible, as much as we can attempt it. There's a lotwe know about the human body, but as I tell most of my patients and most people I talkto, we know probably about 1% of what goes on in the body, and that's why everythingis such a mystery, and that's why some things

work, some things don't. That's why you haveso little understanding. That's one of the main reasons why drugs don't work, becausethey don't really know what's taking place in the body once you give somebody a drug,and therefore, you have all these side effects. They don't know really why we have those sideeffects. In terms of Candida, what we're doing is we'retalking about an organism, which lives inside the intestinal tract, or commonly referredto as the gut. The intestinal tract, in humans, contains the small intestine and large intestine.The length of that intestinal tract is approximately 28 feet, 25 to 28 feet in most people.The intestinal tract has a vast surface area

inside, which allows it to absorb a lot ofnutrients. They have what are called villi, which are little fingerlike projections,and this increases the surface area of the intestinal tract to be approximately 200 squaremeters, or roughly the size of a tennis court, which is the common analogy for that amountof area. Within this 25 to 28foot length tract, we have 100 trillion cells. Well, that'sa number that most people really can't relate to, but a good way to relate to it is thatthe human body has 10 trillion cells, so there are actually 10 times more microorganismsthat live within this 25 to 28foot tract than there are in the rest of the body.Human cells are much larger than the microorganisms,

than the bacteria, the fungus, the yeast,the mold, the virus, the parasites, which make up all these microorganisms that livein the gut. Now all of these microorganisms have coevolved over the years. This usuallyhappens right at birth. Since then they have coevolved to exist together.Good and Bad Bacteria So many times, we hear people talk about beneficialbacteria, bad bacteria. When we think of a healthy intestinal tract, it's really alltends to be good. They're all working together in concert. There's a strong immune system,which helps to regulate and keep everything in check. 70% of the immune system of thebody is in the digestive tract, so if we have

an imbalance here, that is most of the immunesystem of the body, so we have to really consider what happens in the gut as the way the restof the health of the body will © Copyright 20102011, All Rights Reserved, Jeffrey S. McCombs, DC Page 4 of 130 go, and much of what happens in the gut, asfar as all these bacteria, microorganisms, helps to develop our immune system and helpsto prime the immune system. And science shows us that even as immune cellsare being produced in distant sites such as the bone marrow, it is what happens in thegut which helps to determine how these cells are produced, how they will function lateron in their life, as short as it is. So we

have 100 trillion cells, and what we're focusingon are not really bacteria and Candida, but everything together.The human gut has been called the densest ecosystem on the planet, and much of the advancesin science are based on technology that we were using in dense ecosystems like the Amazonjungle and other rainforest habitats. We found that if we took that technology and appliedit to the gut, we were able to find out more and more about the gut and about the microorganismsthat live there. And there are even more new advances that are taking place in nanotechnology,which are going to allow us to see what exactly is happening inside the cells. And a goodpoint here is we don't know exactly what is
