tell me about yeast and candida infection of the gastric mucosa with references
Yeast and Candida are types of fungi that can infect the gastric mucosa, which is the inner lining of the stomach. Candida infection of the gastric mucosa is known as gastric candidiasis, and it can occur in people with weakened immune systems or those who have taken antibiotics or acid-suppressing drugs.
Yeast and Candida infections of the gastric mucosa can cause a range of symptoms, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and bloating. In severe cases, the infection can lead to perforation of the stomach wall, which can be life-threatening.
The diagnosis of yeast and Candida infections of the gastric mucosa is usually made by taking a biopsy of the stomach lining and examining it under a microscope. Treatment typically involves antifungal medications, such as fluconazole or amphotericin B, which can be administered orally or intravenously.
Here are some references for further reading on yeast and Candida infections of the gastric mucosa:

Mushrooms, part of the kingdom shared with fungi yeasts and molds can be incredibly toxic, incredibly healing, and incredibly delicious. Just think of peyote and truffles as the two of the most celebrated of this family. Some are more medicinal, others more culinary.
While there are plenty of “bad” fungi, yeasts and molds, there are even more good ones. They essentially keep our soil alive. In addition, most fermentation that we love (alcohol, bread, some cheeses, salami, need say more?) are based on these critters. They have untold medicinal properties, including anti-cancer, andti-bacterial (penicillin comes from a mold), and mind-altering/healing.
Each type of mushroom or yeast has unique characteristics, just like the variety of herbs and foods that are provided by the Earth.

Thyroperoxidase (TPO) is an extremely important enzyme, mostly located in the thyroid gland. Since it is intimately involved in the production of thyroid hormone, it’s dysfunction can affect every cell of the body, and it often does. The epidemic of thyroid disease, more prevalent than diabetes, is in part due to the dysfunction of this enzyme.
In Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, the most prevalent thyroid disorder and one of the most prevalent autoimmune diseases, the body makes antibodies to TPO as well as to Thryoglobulin.
This post will collect information specific to TPO, while other posts will focus on Hashimotos, Iodine, and related topics as can be seen in the menu at the top of the page.
