A Candida overgrowth can lead to auto-immune diseases including multiple sclerosis.
Candida can display the human connective tissue receptor on its surface, called the laminin receptor. The normal function of the laminin receptor is to allow human cells to anchor themselves to the body's membranes and to other cells.
Candida uses this receptor to anchor itself into the membranes of the human body, such as the inner intestinal lining. Candida appears similar to a number of human receptors including those found on human brain cells.
By displaying such receptors, Candida is able to look like your own
cells, including cells that are in the brain. Candida is also able to
make itself look like cells which are found in the connective tissue of
In an attempt to fight the Candida, your body's immune system also attacks your organs, resulting in autoimmune diseases such as MS and rheumatoid arthritis.
The Candida medicine page describes how to use pharmaceuticals to kill the Candida. I always recommend the natural Candida cure since pharmaceutical anti-fungals are hard on your liver.
You also need to keep a journal of everything you eat and how you feel two hours later. This journal is critical in determining what foods you should avoid and what foods you can eat.
Any food that makes you feel ill, tired or bloated should be removed from your diet until the treatment program is complete. Also any food that creates cravings instead of filling you up should be avoided.
When the treatment program is complete, don't immediately jump back into your old eating habits. Do the Challenge Phase of the Candida diet.
Using a treatment program and keeping a journal your eating habits will help you get the Candida overgrowth under control. Since most cases of MS is caused by excess Candida, you will also get your M.S. under control.
