I have discovered, that the PRIMARY cause of the body losing its balance, resulting in various illnesses and conditions is the deep and chronic deficiency of B vitamins. It’s not that B vitamins are more important than other substances, but the gist of the issue is, they are needed at the beginning of every reaction occuring in the body. Without them, many other substances are not created or not absorbed, so a B vitamin deficiency automatically means many other deficiencies, which inevitably leads to the impairment of the body’s functioning (more on the topic in the post “Why B vitamins?”).
The B vitamin deficiency occurs as a result of acidity in the body caused by a lack of vegetables in the diet, eating highly processed foods containing various chemicals and very little vitamins, abusing coffee and alcohol, smoking, frequent or long-term medication (especially antibiotics, as well as drugs), being overly stressed and a lack of physical activity. It results in the body being weakened in all departments, from digestion to the immune system (see the post: “What are B vitamins responsible for?” and “What is the cause of B vitamin deficiency?”).
If the period of excess acidity in the body is short and you are leading a healthy lifestyle, usually the deficiency is evened out and everything goes slowly back to normal. Usually – because some of our habits can interrupt the process. Slowly – because the B vitamin deficiency causes deficiencies of other substances, which are dependent on B vitamins, which also need to be straightened out – for example many vitamins and elements, which require the presence of B vitamins to be absorbed, or hormones and enzymes, which are co-created by B vitamins (more on the issue in the post “Why does a B vitamin deficiency cause deficiencies of other substances in the body?”).
Unfortunately – most of the time unconsciously – we contribute to the body’s acidity for years and if you happen to have a sweet tooth, there are yeast fungi Candida albicans inevitably multiplying in your intestines. My observations lead me to believe that the vast majority of people currently should not be asking themselves whether they have an overgrowth of Candida, but rather how overgrown the fungus is. And as long as the problem is narrowed down to only the overgrowth of yeast in the intestine, it’s relatively easy to solve. Unfortunately, if generously supplied with sugar and carbohydrates from highly-processed foods, Candida turns into a fungus form and attacks the whole body – it becomes a dangerous parasite, a powerful and cunning adversary, blocking the healing process despite all your best efforts (I describe this more closely in the posts: “Why doesn’t a B vitamin deficiency disappear on its own after applying a healthy diet?”, “What is the correlation between a B vitamin deficiency and Candida?” and “Why is it impossible to get rid of Candida”). 
Candida requires an acidic environment in order to survive, so eating acidogenic, highly processed foods, rich in carbohydrates and deprived of vitamins helps it grow. But when we eat alkaline foods, natural products, we attack Candida, which reacts by intensifying the toxin production. This forces the body to constantly attempt to neutralize them and that in turn uses up all of substances necessary for it which are dependent on B vitamins, rendering the body defenseless against all kinds of new threats and worsening its general condition – so paradoxically, it doesn’t help at all. Traditional methods of fighting Candida base on excluding food items which would aid the fungus in growing from the diet, attacking it and strengthening the body’s immune system, but they are successful only when the fungus dies out faster than the body’s resources for neutralization run out, so generally in the case of an overgrowth of Candida in the intestine only. But if it has spread, the improvement is temporary, because the fungus has only been limited – and usually it regenerates soon, because it multiplies faster than the body can absorb the substances necessary for stopping it. In other words, you can’t win with the parasite as long as the fungus’ ability to acidify your body is stronger than your body’s ability to neutralize its toxins. The logical conclusion emerges, that the key factor in curing an overgrowth of Candida (and at the same time the many diseases and conditions which result from it or accompany it) is providing the body with as much of the B vitamins as possible. Unfortunately, it is much easier said than done, because over-supplementing B vitamins can work in the same way as a healthy, alkaline diet – attacking the Candida too strongly, causing it to respond with a counter-attack of its own. Because of this, paradoxically inappropriately supplementing B vitamins can cause a deeper B vitamin deficiency, making the symptoms we are trying to cure worse (I go into details in the posts “Does supplementing B vitamins work?” and “Why does supplementing other substances in the case of a large B vitamin deficiency usually cause harm?”).
My observations and experiences have lead me to believe that a body with an overgrowth of Candida requires a different approach than a healthy one. Many months of experiments with my diet and many forms of supplementation allowed me to find out what the rules are in getting rid of the fungus – guidelines to make sure the body is receiving an optimal dose of B vitamins, which helps it slowly and systematically even out the deficiencies of substances dependent on them and HEAL ITSELF, not only from the Candida overgrowth (I talk about this in the post “Why do bodies with Candida overgrowth need to be treated differently?” and sum it up in “Self-diagnosis” and “Tips for people with Candida and B vitamin deficiency, or how to finally get moving in the right direction”).
On this blog I also post my story of fighting Candida as an educational example – it’s long (seven years of sacrifices, limitations and multiple attempts at treatment without a happy ending) and abundant in crisis (all hypotheses must be tested in practice and not all of them work out…). But fortunately thanks to the discovery of the role of B vitamins it is a story of a long term Candida overgrowth ending in a natural recovery, which restored my body to proper functioning, appearance and wellbeing, which motivated me to share my experiences and knowledge with others.
Enjoy, I encourage you to observe yourself and take action and wish you an equally happy ending in restoring your body’s balance 🙂
