Here are a few snippets I found regarding this. Please read the whole article to fully understand the entire context from which this was taken. The URL is below.
"Furthermore, the yeast works to encapsulate the red blood cells, causing a diminished ability to do oxygen exchange across it's membranes."
"Moreover, these particles can also cross the blood/brain barrier and be mistaken for neurotransmitters, creating a host of neurological symptoms."
Margi this is especially for your question: Maybe this is why in some instances Candida can equal CH and other times not. Which of the 79 Toxins have each of us produced and in what quantities?
"Candida has been found to produce 79 distinct toxins. These toxins have been shown to cause massive congestion of the conjunctivae (eyelid area), ears, and other parts of the body in rats (Iwata). It is these toxins that are also suggested to be responsible for many of the symptoms that Candida sufferers have as well as the "die off reaction." Certainly, there are other complex complicating factors that are unknown to us at this point which will require further research and funding to find."
And for Miguel: If you feel there is a correlation between mold and your CH then you should probably look into the Candida theory a little further as well.
"There are three goals in the treatment of Chronic Candidiasis Syndrome:
Elimination of ingestion of molds in patients with allergies to molds.
Destruction of yeast proliforation in the body.
Reduction of the factors providing a favorable environment for the growth of yeasts"
Hope this helps: Go to the Url for the whole article - some of this was taken from the Doc Darren link at that page as well.
