A healthy person has about 500 microorganisms, like bacteria, fungi and protozoa living in their intestines maintaining a balanced healthy digestive system. These microorganisms make vitamins, steroids and fatty acids that help breakdown toxins, assist with the digestion of food, help with the absorption of nutrients, and prevent the overgrowth of yeast, parasites and bad bacteria. A good rule of thumb is to maintain 80% good bacteria and 20% bad bacteria.


Candida is yeast that naturally lives inside the digestive system and reproduces slowly. A healthy system restricts the rapid growth of this yeast but if there is an imbalance of micro-organisms, yeast acts like a parasite that takes over your stomach and GI track, multiplies like a various and feeds off of the body.
