The term RSI is the abbreviation of 'Repetitive Strain Injury'. Literally, the term means 'physical condition due to repeated overload'. It is a collective term for various pain problems in the neck, shoulders, arms, wrists and hands (and exceptional of the legs) due to chronic overload. Only pain due to overload due to repeated movements and/or static postures is called RSI. Overload caused by a 'one-off' high load is not caught under the term RSI.
The pain is only called RSI if it is more or less chronic. This means that the complaints persist for a longer period of time (often three months as a lower limit is maintained).

Candida is a family of yeasts or fungi that can occur naturally on the skin, mucous membranes and in the intestines. This is also called commensalen. The most common Candida species is Candida albicans. Virtually everyone naturally has candida albicans yeasts on the skin, mucous membranes (of vagina, mouth, etc), intestines, etc. The yeasts live there in balance with the bacteria that are also naturally there. These bacteria ensure that there is just enough food for the yeasts, so that their number remains small. In Normal comdition we don't notice any of it and they don't do any harm.
