Candida, a dangerous enemy most often ignored

Candidosis is a fungal infection caused by the yeasts of the Candida species. Candida albicans is the predominant cause of candida infection. Candida albicans normally exists in the body in small amounts, especially in the intestinal tract and the urinary tract, as well as in the vagina. This becomes a danger when it grows uncontrollably, putting life into danger if it gets into the bloodstream and spreads to different organs and brain. This is called Systemic Candidosis. This can have very serious consequences, including: heart failure, kidney failure, respiratory distress. Routine laboratory tests prescribed by family doctors omit testing to detect excess Candida fungus. In most cases, the different symptoms of Candidosis are misdiagnosed, and inappropriate treatments are prescribed such as antibiotics that do nothing...

Immune system: the main weapon against disease

SISTEMUL IMUNITAR, ARMA PRINCIPALA IMPOTRIVA BOLILOR
The immune system protects the body with stratified defenses and high specificity. There are two major components of the immune system: the innate and the adaptive. In simple terms, physical barriers prevent the entry into the body of pathogens, such as bacteria and viruses. If a pathogen breaks through these barriers, the innate immune system provides an immediate but non-specific response. If pathogens can successfully pass over the innate immune response, our body has a second layer of protection called the adaptive immune system. Here, the immune system adapts its response during an infection to recognize the pathogen. This response is then retained after the pathogen has been removed in the form of an immunological memory and allows the adaptive immune system to fix a...

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) - also known as thioctic acid, was discovered in 1951 as a molecule identified in the acetyl group transfer phase as well as a coenzyme in the Krebs cycle. In the 1980s, the scientific community realized that ALA is also a powerful antioxidant. Several defining properties of ALA over other antioxidants: #mpcth_icon_list_9frzX { color: #000000; }#mpcth_icon_list_9frzX li i { color: #366f3e; }ALA neutralizes free radicals in both fatty and liquid areas of the cell, compared to vitamin C that is only soluble in water and vitamin E which is only soluble in fat.ALA also acts as an antioxidant in both reduced and oxidized form.Pharmacologically, ALA is readily absorbed oral administration and is rapidly converted into the reduced form of acid-dihydrolipoic (DHLA)...
