Candida doesn't NEED to crawl,...it shoots out tentacle like growths called pseudohyphae burrowing into the gut wall to try and get glucose from the blood.
Also called rhizoids: " When our bodies get out of balance, that yeast takes advantage and proliferates. It changes form and becomes a mycelial fungus that literally branches out through our bodies, starting in our intestine. These branches shoot out like mushrooms sprout through undergrowth. The tentacles of the fungus, called rhizoids, can penetrate the mucosal lining of the intestine and invade every organ. Thread-like and root-like shoots grow through the body like their relative taking over the Washington mountainside. This is real. When the entire body is involved, it is called systemic candidiasis.
It's a Monster,...or a possession. Call it what you will.
