A little premise…….
In a car we have a panel with various warning lights that light up to tell us that something is wrong with the car.
In the “man machine” these warning lights are represented by many different symptoms.
The symptoms of metabolic syndrome are actually warning lights, which arise to warn us that the level of toxins within the body is at worrying levels.
But where do these toxins originate from?
- from improper and unhealthy nutrition
- what we drink from
- from the air we breathe
- from the thoughts that circulate in our minds
- from the stress of everyday life
From the studies of numerous international researchers (see bibliography) and also from the experience of Dr. Enzo DI MAIO MD, it is clear how much the Metabolic Syndrome, together with other diseases with a psychosomatic component, is related to the chronic infection of CANDIDA ALBICANS.
Candida albicans is a fungus that is present in our organism since birth. In fact, the baby passes through the mother’s birth canal and being infected, given that this mycete is normally present in large quantities in the vaginal secretion of pregnant women.
From this moment on, Candida will colonize the mucosa of the small intestine, its true residence, but as long as the number of colonies present is not high, it will only represent a saprophyte for the individual, i.e. it will not cause damage. If for one or more reasons the immune system is depressed, the colonies will rise in number.
At this point, we may have an external manifestation of the ongoing infection, through the “second homes” of Candida, such as vaginitis or burning sensations in the penis, thrush, fungal spots on the skin, athlete’s foot, etc…The consequences provoked by the 79 toxins, that are produced by Candida, are more silent and are directed for the majority towards the Central Nervous System (CNS) and the secondary immune system (i.e., the intestinal one) and the main one.
In fact, Candida infection is present in all individuals who suffer from pathologies with a psychosomatic component. Have you ever had a particular desire to eat (Bread) Pane, Pasta, Pizza, Potatoes (“The Four Ps of Dr. Enzo Di Maio MD” ©Copyright 1995), Sweets or Sugar? If so, it is not your body that is asking you to ingest sugars because it is deficient, but it is Candida that is asking you to do so.
Candida albicans feeds only on simple carbohydrates (sugars) and when it needs nourishment, some toxins are sent to the brain, so that the individual takes in a fair amount. After about a quarter of an hour, its meal will be completed, and Candida albicans will then send more toxins to the brain, indicating that it is no longer hungry, and that there is no need to introduce more food. The person in question will feel an unpleasant sensation of abdominal swelling (due to the metabolism of the fungus) and will think “…but what did I eat? It was just a piece of bread or a small sweet…”
The list of pathologies in which Candida is a joint participant could be very long, but it is good to remember some of them.
Among the so-called minor ones:
GASTRITIS, COLITIS (both with constipation and diarrhea), various digestive disorders, DEPRESSION (see Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), ANXIETY, OBESITY, ANOREXIA, INSOMNIA, DYSMENORRHEA and PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME, VAGINITIS or recurrent CYSTITIS, BALANOPOSTITIS (inflammation of the penis ), HERPES in its various forms, CONDYLOMAS and MICROCONDYLOMAS from HPV (Human Papilloma Virus), HEADACHES, FOOD INTOLERANCES, SEBORRHOEIC DERMATITIS, CONTACT DERMATITIS, etc.
Among the most notable:
METABOLIC SYNDROME, PSORIASIS, RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS, PSORIASIC ARTHRITIS, ATOPIC DERMATITIS, VITILIGO, SCLEROATROPHIC LICHEN, LUPUS, CROHN’S DISEASE, ADULT DIABETES, SEVERE DEPRESSIONS, GASTRO-DUODENAL ULCERS, allergic and non-allergic ASTHMA, ARTERIAL HYPERTENSION, etc.…
If it seems like a lot to you, consider that according to US statistics, chronic Candida infection affects between 70% and 80% of the world population (see bibliography).
In the last 15 – 20 years everyone has been able to observe a notable increase in many so-called psychosomatic pathologies, and generally manifestations of Candida infection.
This is due to many factors, including: the indiscriminate use of antibiotics, drugs for the central nervous system (antidepressants, anxiolytics, tranquilizers, sleeping pills), cortisone, contraceptive pills, antiulcer drugs (cimetidine, etc.), massive use of dental amalgam (dark fillings contain mercury), the use of preservatives and colorants in the food sector, but also the exaggerated use of products derived from wheat grains.
In newborns, even premature ones, there is a notable influence due to vaccines, which also contain mercury derivatives.
At a diagnostic level, numerous aids are available such as the search for specific antibodies for candida in the blood, the direct search for candida in the faeces, in the urine or in the vaginal or penile secretion, however it is of considerable help, both for statistics and for the study of related symptoms, the use of specifically designed questionnaires.
Once the presence of chronic Candida infection (Chronic Candidiasis Syndrome or Candida Related Complex for Anglo-Saxons) has been identified, it is correct to establish the most suitable course of action to follow, considering first of all the individual in his entirety and secondly the pathology of which he is affected by.
It will therefore be possible to carry forward both a food and non-food discussion.
The following is intended to be a popular and informative exposition on existing therapeutic aids, or those currently known to us. It must not be used for self-medication. However, in any case it is not advisable to just eliminate “The four Ps of Dr. DI MAIO” ©Copyright 1995. Because by eliminating only these, without a correct diet designed solely for that individual according to the Philosophy of Ayurvedic Medicine and the most current knowledge of Western Medicine, after a few days the candida will send neurotransmitters to the brain in such a way that it cannot be resisted and therefore you will end up binging on one or all of them

The result will be extremely negative. In order to regain the lost balance, a specific “Personal Protocol” can be carried out
