Fungal infections causes , symptoms, and treatment

Updated: Dec 28, 2020

Struggling with any fungal infection will cause significant problems to the body and mind. Many people struggle with bad skin, bad breathe, digestive issues, dandruff, brittle nails, gas, heartburn, sugar cravings, athletes foot, yeast infections, ringworm, candida, etc when they have a fungal infection.

When the body is battling with a fungal infection, it uses a lot of energy. You will find yourself more exhausted with some allergy problems. Anytime the immune system is turned on, the body will use the Sympathetic nervous system to battle any invader. The Sympathetic nervous system is known to fight/flight. At first, the body will fight, but it will start to flight on you, causing significant fatigue if there's a persistent issue.

Fungus infections are live pathogens/bacteria that need to eat to survive. They thrive very well from carbohydrates. When they get hungry, they can manipulate you to crave sweets ( fast-digesting carbohydrates), so they can continue to live and take over your body. After eating, they POOP into your blood, which releases mycotoxins! This turns on the immune system and causes stress to the body. Mycotoxins can cause brain fog, joint and muscle issues, and nervous system problems.


Fungal infections always show up in a body that is immune suppressed or too stressed. They also pop up when one is getting too much sugar than they can handle. Here are some of the leading causes of a Fungal Infection.

  • Eating commercial animals who were sick and struggled with fungal infections and had to take antibiotics will increase the chances of getting a fungal infection.

  • If you ever had to take a round of antibiotics and never recolonized with probiotics.

  • Drinking tap water, which kills off the good bugs in your gut.

  • Overeating processed foods.

  • Living in an uncleaned environment.

  • Eating GMO foods.

  • Dysbiosis, which is an imbalance of good bacteria vs bad bacteria in your gut.

Fungus and yeast infections are often not implicated by the medical system as causing anything more than superficial problems except for most immunocompromised patients. There are much evidence that fungal infections are more common and can cause far more (sometimes severe) symptoms than many medical professionals assume.

Part of the problem lies in the fact that fungal infections can be challenging to diagnose. Fortunately, there are some signs that fungus or yeast might be at the root of many of your health problems.


Do you crave sugar and carbohydrates?

Fungi and yeasts' chosen food is sugar, or sugar by way of simple carbohydrates. They desire this sort of food, and if they are parasitizing your body, you likely will too. Everyone gets a sweet tooth from time to time, but if you feel like you are frequently cravings sweets, this might be a warning sign. If you notice itching right after eating something sweet or crave more sweets ifs a great sign, you have a fungal infection.

Do you have digestive problems?

Usually, fungal infections begin in the gut when naturally-occurring yeasts grow out of control and begin causing symptoms. Numerous practitioners believe that if you have a fungal problem anywhere on or in the body, you likely have yeast overgrowing in the gut, a problem called dysbiosis. From there, yeasts can penetrate through the intestines, causing what is called "leaky gut," making that localized problem more systemic. Often, people with a fungal issue have chronic Digestive problems like gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, GERD, or any other number of digestive symptoms.

Do you suffer from skin and nail problems like rashes, eczema or nail fungus?

Problems on the skin may be a sign of deeper issues within. Often, people with yeast overgrowth have skin problems that can be somewhat difficult to treat or diagnose. Repeated skin fungal infections or nail fungal infections might mainly be a sign that you have an internal yeast problem. If you notice skin and worsen after eating sugar, chances are high you have a fungal infection.

Do you suffer from chronic malaise or feel worn out all the time?

This is a common complaint about people who go on to discover that yeast was causing their symptoms. Chronic fatigue, lack of energy or generally feeling crummy can often signify that something deeper is at work. These people's sleep will often be poor despite being very tired, and rarely will they wake of refreshed or feeling energized, and energy levels will be low throughout the day.

Do you have brain fog, difficulty concentrating, or feel "spaced" out?

Brain and mental symptoms are not uncommon in people with fungal problems. Many describe the feeling of "brain fog" or an inability to concentrate. This lack of mental clarity often accompanies a sense of malaise or lack of energy and motivation.

Do you suffer from allergies or other sensitivities?

Allergies are common, but if you are a chronic sufferer or suffer from other sensitivities (i.e., sensitivity to fragrances or chemical smells), this may signify that you are suffering from an underlying fungal infection.


The best treatment to heal a fungal infection is a proper diet and recolonizing the good bugs in your gut. The best diet is a natural low carb diet; this will starve the fungal infection. Eat clean organic meats and veggies; this will support your immune system while the fungus is dying off in the body. You Should notice more energy as soon as you apply this diet. Get your hands on fermented foods and human-grade probiotics to help recolonize the gut to flight off and maintain yeast.
