The problems associated with fungal infections are ones I know very intimately. When I was 17 or 18, I recall having this terrible jock itch. Sometimes, it was so bad, I’d scratch it with a screwdriver so hard that I left my skin bloodied.
When I went to a doctor, all they would do was give me a pill or cremes but nobody seemed to know what was causing the problem and these remedies really didn’t do anything.
As I studied these things later on for my benefit and to help others, it became very apparent that what I had was a fungal infection, the topic of this video.
There’s two kinds of fungal infections: Superficial (on the surface of your body) and deep (inside your body).
Once a fungal infection goes deep — many fungi will send their filaments to bore holes through the gut wall — it’s very, very hard to get one out of your body. Once fungal infections are in there, they’re very good at lying dormant, just waiting for the day you eat too many cookies or stress yourself out too much.
Fungal infections are very prevalent and problematic which is why it’s important to understand the differences between ones that are superficial and deep. One quick tip I can’t stress enough: It’s wise to manage them very early.
If a fungal infection on the surface of your body is able to penetrate through your skin and into your body, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll be able to get rid of it and you’ll be in a constant dance with that fungus for the rest of your life like I and others I know have.
However, there are some potential benefits to having a fungal infection, and you’ll learn about those along with its symptoms in this video too.
Love and chi,
