"Candida Infections and Autism – Why Is It So Pervasive and Problematic?" by Dr. Kurt Woeller from Mosaic Diagnostics on Vimeo.


This webinar delves into the relationship between Candida infections and autism, exploring why Candida overgrowth is pervasive and problematic in individuals with autism spectrum disorders. Candida, a type of yeast, is naturally present in our bodies, but when it grows uncontrollably, it can lead to a wide range of health issues, including digestive problems, immune dysfunction, and neurobehavioral symptoms, which are commonly observed in individuals with autism. Expert in the field, Dr. Kurt Woeller, will provide an in-depth understanding of the factors that contribute to Candida overgrowth in individuals with autism, including dietary factors, immune system dysfunction, and other underlying health conditions. He will discuss the impact of Candida infections on the gut-brain axis, immune system, and overall health in individuals with autism, and highlight the challenges in diagnosis and treatment of Candida overgrowth. Strategies for addressing Candida infections in individuals with autism, including dietary interventions, antifungal therapies, and other integrative approaches, will be discussed in detail. This webinar is a valuable resource for healthcare professionals, caregivers, and individuals interested in understanding the link between Candida infections and autism, and learning effective strategies for addressing this pervasive and problematic issue.
