Candida overgrowth linked to high estrogen levels!

Recommended Posts

Interesting!!

I was reading the probiotic thread and I thought to google "candida estrogen dominance." It seems there's definitely some connection between the two conditions. Interesting that hormone balancing diets, candida diets, and insulin/blood sugar diets have a lot in common.

"Estrogen dominance increases mucus glucose, thereby facilitating candida growth... When hormone imbalance is restored to normal balance using progesterone, candida growth is less likely to persist. The normal benign bacteria are restored and the body heals itself of its candida population."

Also, WHY ARE YEAST INFECTIONS MORE COMMON AMONG WOMEN TAKING BIRTH CONTROL PILLS?

"Infection is common among women who use estrogen-containing birth control pills and among women who are pregnant. This is due to the increased level of estrogen in the body."

I'm thinking hormone balance, bowel health, blood sugar, inflammation, and infection are inextricably linked.

It was on the news that scientists have proven that sugar speeds up the aging process by a significant percent (I think we all knew that before, but finally its a "fact" ;)).... causing premature wrinkles and everything.

^Another great reason to drop/lower sugar in our diets. :) Everytime I reach for a candy I see wrinkles now.

Ok, well I answered my own question.

Another one:

If DIM takes care of estrogen and androgen levels, wouldn't this be what is likely helping people out? I mean, wouldn't the reduction of candida be the answer here? I'm going to try and find some DIM and test this out. I was planning on healing my overgrowth by diet, but if this catches it earlier on and triggers more healing, I'm all for faster results.
