There is a definite connection between GERD or chronic acid reflux and Candida overgrowth or Candida Infection.
The answer boils down to the energetic imbalances in the body’s organs, and whether you have a weakened lower esophageal sphincter as well.
Chronic acid reflux may cause a weakened lower esophageal sphincter which causes further acid reflux up into the esophagus where pain is more common.
However, candida infection can cause duodenal ulcers as well.
Mostly acid reflux whether it is chronic or acute is due to toxic bile coming from the gallbladder or liver and ending up being passed into the stomach.
The stomach then regurgitates it contents because it gets irritated, including the acid, whether on an empty stomach or after a meal.
You then feel that as acid reflux usually in the esophagus.
However, another reason for the stomach issues is the fact that a lot of candida sufferers have lowered stomach acid.
Now lets delve deeper into the liver-gall-bladder connection.
The liver or gall-bladder are connected in the meridian system and communicate with each other. The liver creates bile which the gallbladder stores.
With Candida toxins in the body, the liver is constantly detoxifying the blood because of the candida toxins. It is over-worked.
As each food you eat feeds Candida, or you try to eradicate candida with yeast killers, your liver finally loses its full ability to detoxify, and symptoms show up.
In fact, the liver’s ability to detoxify, or rather its inability to detoxify causes symptoms of malaise to begin.
When bile becomes toxic the liver is weakened, the candida overgrowth is out of control, and symptoms of acid reflux begin.
Then the liver shows signs of being weakened by a person waking up between 1 and 3 am. The gall-bladder shows need of help if the person is unable to get to sleep quickly after 11pm to 1am - i.e. laying wide awake not being able to sleep. This sleep disturbance is not always a melatonin deficiency issue.
The liver in a Candida sufferer would need strengthening and this could take 3-5 months depending on other organ involvement. Additional supplementation would be helpful.
