Possible cause of Multiple sclerosis: Candida Albicans


Multiple sclerosis has been associated with infections and Candida, a species of yeast. The most common type of Candida is Candida albicans. Mild infections with Candida my involve the mouth, which is referred to as a thrush, or the vagina, which is referred to as monilia. More significant infections with Candida usually occur in people with conditions that suppress the immune system, such as AIDS, and the use of chemotherapy medications. These infections may involve the mouth, throat, eye, heart, and blood stream.

It has been proposed that many medical conditions are associated with "overgrowth" of Candida, which is known as "Candidiasis hypersensitivity, "polysystemic candidiasis", or "chronic candidiasis syndrome." Candida hypersensitivity has been specifically suggested to be involved in multiple sclerosis. It is claimed that it may occur with multiple sclerosis because of multiple sclerosis-associated immune system abnormalities or the use of steroids, which suppress the immune system. In addition to multiple sclerosis, candidiasis hypersensitivity has been associated with fatique, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, rheumatoid arthritis, AIDS, breathing problems, and bladder infections.
