    Candida can cause alcoholism, sugar and dairy addictions too. Candida is a yeast that overgrows due to bad stress, eating too much bad foods like sugar, white starchy foods like pasta, rice and potatoes. Many say that too many antibiotics and even cancer drugs kill off too much good bacteria in the gut. Good bacteria is vital for human health as it keeps our immune systems strong preventing bad illnesses.

    Symptoms of Candida are: 24 hr fatigue, bad anxiety and depression, intolerance to dairy or gluten, skin rashes, acne, white coating on tongue, bad breath, sleep problems, athletes foot.

    It can become a vicious cycle where candida causes alcohol addiction because of bad depression and sugar cravings, and alcoholism leads to bad candida because of the sugar content it contains and more depression caused by drinking.

    If you want to test yourself for candida type in candida on youtube and look for candida spit test. If you have this, type in candida on youtube and look for a picture with 2 tongues on it. I posted a diet plan along with antifungals i took to kill mine, under Eifion Phillips.

    Merry Christmas!

    Very informative, lol wish I lived in that part of Florida. That is where most of the help centers are. Is none of business what parts of my family do, but when they do it daily…Then I think its become an issue. Thank you for listening to my story.

    These are some good pointers how to recognize the warning signs of an alcoholic. I think that tolerance could be a sort of overlap between an alcohol abuser and an alcoholic.

    Well i'm dependent on alcohol on friday/saturday nights..
    But i don't ''crave'' it during the week..so dependency is not always a sign of alcoholism unless they do have withdrawals for instance..
