Definition: The splitting and cracking of skin tissue at the corners of the mouth or around the heel on the foot
Typical Complaints: Red chapped lips at the corners of the mouth. Tiny cuts at the corners of the mouth. Stinging and burning .Deep cracks in the heels. Yellow thick skin on the heels/feet.
CRACKED HEELS/MOUTH and their relationship to CANDIDA: When Candida becomes systemic (it buries through the gut wall and enters the blood stream) it leaves tiny holes in the gut wall which then allow product from the bowel into the blood stream. This is what doctors call gut dysbiosis. This sets our body’s alarm bells ringing as product from the bowel has entered the sterile environment of the blood stream and the risk of contamination becomes the primary focus. In addition to this emergency, the holes also allow tiny food particles from the intestines to pass into the blood stream which can in turn produce food sensitivities which aggravate any skin problems. Now Candida is free to circulate through the blood stream and colonise wherever it likes. Being a yeast like fungus it enjoys a warm, moist environment most and so the corners of your mouth or sweaty feet are the perfect home. The skin is the largest of our organs and continually tries to cleanse itself by throwing out any unwanted debris or organisms. When Candida colonises in significant amounts it can cause the skin to crack open and is unable to heal itself resulting in ongoing soreness and a risk of infection.
The Healing Process: First we must eradicate Candida from the blood stream. Once this has been achieved through our Candida Program we then heal the gut wall thus ceasing the continual leaking of product and Candida from the bowel into the blood stream enabling the skin to repair and regenerate.
