Female Hormonal Acne and...Candida

Recommended Posts

Okay, I have come across something EXTREMELY interesting. Please read:

http://www.candida-society.org/ncs/digestv1i3.htm (Article: Is Candida an Endocrine Disorder?)

http://www.candida-society.org/ncs/symptoms.htm

What do you girls (or guys) think?

Edit: Here is another article that talks more about APICH syndrome (Autoimmune Polyendocripopathy Immune-dysregulation Candidosis Hypersensitivity (try saying that five times) syndrome)

I really don't know what to think. I have read so many articles on candida and leaky gut I don't know who to believe. It is blamed for a lot of ailments. I went on an anti-candida diet all winter not sure I feel any different. It did not affect my acne directly but cutting out sugar did. I guess if someone gets better by following an anti-candida regime than thats wonderful. I don't know what to say about the affects on the endocrine system, this is a new one for me.

i'm still going to have to read carefully the text but ive skimmed over it and you are definitely on the right track... its all related, the food allergies (which mine happened to become the foods i ate everyday), the low immune system & WBC, and the hormones. it all affects the skin and detoxing is what i am currently doing now. it's alot of information to take in but the more we educate ourselves about how the body works, the more everything will make sense and the truth to cure it will be clear and simple.

It really is amazing how connected everything is, isn't it? Once something is off, our entire system is off, like a chain reaction.

Anyway @Arielle, yes, we do need to do those things, but I think that what the article brings up is important when it says to find a medical practitioner who will help us. We can't always self-diagnose (for instance, knowing the exact ratio of our hormones...sure we can make educated guesses, but tests would allow for a really solid plan of action). It's not just tests to find out what our allergies/sensitivities are (As IMO, we SHOULDN'T be breaking out within hours of eating certain foods, that is NOT normal, and therefore by avoiding those foods, we are NOT addressing the underlying cause), but to find out what is going on inside of us.

That is very much easier said than done, but I think if one has the money (or even not...for me, at least, my health is number 1 priority and I will do everything I can even if it means forgoing spending money on other things, like clothes, going to the movies, etc) and the motivation, one can find a good practitioner to help get things figured out.

Something that I am interested in is Functional Medicine. Dr. Hyman (sp?) is a very well-known doctor in Massachusetts I believe (he has a youtube account and does videos...really a funny, nice guy). Seeing him is very expensive, but he is very thorough in testing, and is a great example of the field of Functional Medicine. Here is the website for functional medicine, where it explains what it is and helps located doctors who practice it in your area: http://www.functionalmedicine.org/

I haven't the time to check out those articles at the moment, but for me personally, the horrible hormonal/pms acne I had for years practically disappeared once I started on a strict anti-candida diet. And this is before I began on antifungal supplements--just cutting out gluten, sugar,yeast, etc.. No detox or probiotics.

That might not be just about candida. There has been a study that proved that diet can improve PMS issues and shorten periods.
