candida research and disease links?

Posted on February 12, 2006. Filed under: Candida |

The girl we just went out for dinner in has studied microbiology and was familiar with Candida. She told me that there’s a lot of research being done in finding the relationships between Candida and auto-immune diseases. They definitely must be related. Everyone really has a form of Candida in them, but something will set it off. Kind of like a tipping point. So, I’m going to look into some medical and biology journals while I’m close to the university. She also mentioned that one emerging field at the moment is the study of the body’s flora (which is all but absent in a candida-ridden body) and that you can study how it changes throughout the course of a person’s life and then perhaps take what is supposed to be “normal” and match it to any differences that may occur when people aren’t well. Makes total sense to me — if only I hadn’t dropped science after grade 10, I’d be in there, doing research for my PhD!
