Candida and Acid Reflux
Candida and acid reflux are connected : I’ve seen many references to yeast overgrowth, or candidiasis, or Thrush, in the intestine being a cause of acid reflux. Candida is the term for a group of organisms including moulds and fungi which live all around us. One family, Candida Albicans, lives in all mucus membranes, i.e. intestines, eyes, ears, bladder, stomach, lungs, vagina, etc. It is one of the billions of friendly organisms that serve a useful purpose in the body.
