How Does Candida Albicans Get Its Nutrition?

Fungi do not have digestion systems in the way that humans and animals do. They live on their food and absorb the nutrition from it through organs similar to plant roots called hyphae. Hyphae allow the fungus to sink into the food source and absorb as much nutrition from it as possible. If you can not imagine this or you are unfamiliar with fungal nutrition, you can see an example of forest fungi that have sunk hyphae into the trunk of a decaying tree, in that way providing nutrition for themselves.

Well, unfortunately this is the same thing that happens when you have yeast infection anywhere on your body, although yeast cells are so small that you can not see them without a microscope.

When you get a yeast infection, millions of yeast cells burrow hyphae into your skin. Then they start to release hydrolytic enzymes which help to turn your skin cells and the serum in your blood into a substance which will nourish the yeast cells.

They will burrow their hyphae as deep as they can and absorb as much nutrition as they are able to find, and will continue to do so until we do something to eliminate the overgrown yeast cells.When the yeast that infected you has enough nutrition it starts to proliferate, and untreated infections can become even worse.

The fact that you have some foreign organism digging down underneath your skin is very unpleasant and a little bit scary, but you have to understand that yeast infection is not present only on your skin surface, it goes below! That is why most topical treatments for yeast infections are not effective.

Whatever type of yeast infection you have, and no matter what part of your body is infected, the same thing always happens. Under any part of infected skin, there are yeast’s hyphae digging deeper and deeper searching for food, and you are the only one who can stop them. You should do it as quickly and as effectively as you can.
