Yeast Symptoms

Yeast Symptoms
Polly: People with the “yeast syndrome” have such diverse symptoms. They might display only a couple of symptoms at a time, or they may be replete with many of the typical manifestations. Possible problems are fatigue, rashes, hypoglycemia, “brain-fog,” migraines, depression, carpal tunnel, mitral valve prolapse, diarrhea, constipation, night sweats, sinus problems, menstrual disorders, frequent colds and earaches. In this chapter, a few of the more common complaints along with a few possible remedies will be discussed. Those conditions that pertain specifically to females are covered in the chapter on estrogen and progesterone in book 4.

Hypoglycemia And Glucose Tolerance Test

Polly: Many of us with yeast overgrowth have hypoglycemia. In fact, it may be very difficult to distinguish the “yeast syndrome” from just hypoglycemia. Many of the symptoms are the same. Hypoglycemia will interfere with the immune system and will predispose one to allergies. [1] In the book Nutrition and Mental Illness by Carl Pfeiffer, PhD, MD, he lists these symptoms of hypoglycemia:

“fatigue, irritability, nervousness, depression, crying spells, vertigo or dizziness, faintness, insomnia, mental confusion or forgetfulness, inability to concentrate, anxiety, phobias and fears, disperceptions, disruptive outbursts, headaches, low blood pressure, low body temperature, and cold sweats.”

MM: Check out this web site and linked pages for GREAT information on hypoglycemia. It seems that most of us share various versions of this devastating condition. On this site, make sure to find the link to the hypoglycemia association also. See http://www.fred.net/slowup/hypo.html and http://www.fred.net/slowup/hai.html

Mrs. Generic: I suspect I have both candida and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). I would like to take a glucose tolerance test but I’m afraid to because they use a form of sugar to test you. What should I do?

Patti: My nutritionist is having me eat small Zone balanced meals 6 times a day. If it helps then we can conclude hypoglycemia is an issue without having to go through the finger pricking stuff. It’s a pain in the @@s but if it helps then I will continue doing this. I just started. Does anyone know why the two might be related?

Taylor: Hypoglycemia and candida are known to be linked. I wouldn’t go through the test for hypoglycemia for anything. I would treat the candida, then watch the hypoglycemia resolve itself. It did for me; it did for my son.

Sally: I asked Dr. Rogers this question when she ordered the 6 hour glucose tolerance test for me. She said that it will only make you sick for a day or so; take your antifungals. (I was off them when I took another test that involved drinking a similar sugary drink and I had some real bad brain fog.) Also make sure you have someone to drive you home from the test. There are different causes of hypoglycemia and the test is useful to see the particular pattern of the sugar response to a measured dose, to aid in diagnosis.

This would be very difficult to do at home. For example: My blood sugar is normal while fasting but plummets rapidly when sugar is ingested. My first blood draw, one hour after ingesting the sugar was already real low. My curve was just the opposite of a normal person. I believe this is indicative of an allergic pancreas over-secreting. I would recommend that you request your first blood draw only 1/2 hour after ingesting the sugar so the initial peak can not be overlooked, as it probably was with me. Severity of hypoglycemia is also diagnosed by physical and mental symptoms during the test so be sure and tell them how you feel at each interval and don’t be afraid to ask for a place to lie down if you need to. Bring a good book with you.

What Causes The Hypoglycemia?

Mona: When I was at my worst in this sickness I thought I was having hypoglycemic really bad. Dr. Davis told my sister that it was the candida and I was reacting just as if I had this but I really didn’t. Weird huh?

Polly: That sounds plausible. Food poisoning can cause shock and hypoglycemia. We aren’t exposed to enough toxins to cause a life threatening reaction, but we are exposed to a lot of bacterial toxins on a daily basis. There are many problems associated with our body’s constant exposure to these gut toxins that can contribute to the hypoglycemia.

1. All the toxins put a strain on the liver. It is the liver that must destroy insulin.

2. The liver must also get rid of toxins like estrogen. Estrogen causes hypoxia (lack of oxygen), and hypoxia can cause hypoglycemia. In fact anything that interferes with cellular respiration can cause hypoglycemia. [1] This includes not having enough thyroid hormone.

3. According to Dr. Shaw of the Great Plains Laboratory, the body’s normal production of glucose (a sugar) is impaired by the tartaric acid produced by certain strains of yeast and bacteria. (Those with fibromyalgia are more likely than most to have this situation.)

4. A lack of biotin can add to the sugar control problems. There can be both a real and functional deficit of biotin due to the dysbiosis.

5. Dysbiosis is often accompanied by low glutamine and low branch chain amino acids (components of protein). The muscles convert the branch chain amino acids into glutamine and alanine, which the liver then converts into sugar. Thus low levels of these amino acids may contribute to the hypoglycemia.

6. Ethanol/alcohol created by yeast inhibits the liver’s formation of glucose (sugar) from fats and protein.

If the hypoglycemia doesn’t clear up after having gotten rid of the dysbiosis, then you have to think about what type of damage the toxins could have done to the body. I think you need to pay particular attention to thyroid, the liver, and a possible imbalance in amino acids.

Erica A: What do you mean by branch chain amino acids?

Polly: The branch chain amino acids are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Eric Braverman has a chapter devoted to them in his book The Healing Nutrients Within. They can be used by the body as fuel, similar to fat and sugar. Hence they are helpful for hypoglycemia. They are depleted by low thyroid. To use the branch chain aminos properly, the body needs B6, biotin, magnesium, alpha-ketoglutaric acid, copper and B2. Yeast toxins often deplete or interfere with most of these nutrients. (Book 6 has a chapter on amino acids. You can purchase amino acids at most health food stores.)

Night Sweats

Mrs. Generic: Does anyone here get night sweats?

Mary Lou: Yes, I got really bad night sweats when I was at the worse with my candida problems. Search for past archive posts on this topic. I would even break out in sweats during the day in the beginning. I think it is your body trying to fight off the infection and toxins. I also had horrible die-off sweating during the first five weeks. I don’t think hormones have anything to do with it, as it is not anything like hot flashes. I started this after my flu shot in the fall too. That will be my last flu shot.

Mitch in New York: I’ve had night sweats on and off with candida so you shouldn’t be alarmed. It is definitely a sign that your body is struggling to deal with an infection and/or inflammation. My acupuncturist was actually able to get rid of them.

Sally: Sweating serves two purposes, to cool the body and to get rid of toxins. In candidiasis there can be a build up of toxins from the byproducts of the yeast and also digestive repercussions that allow toxins to enter the body. At night your body is in repair mode and starts dumping toxins more rapidly. Meditation, Tai Chi, or other forms of calming the body also is similar to the sleep state in that it relaxes and calms the system and allows it to go into repair mode. Sweating can also be a sign of kidney shut down if it occurs simultaneously with a fever (most fevers are dry and sweating only occurs when the fever breaks.) When your kidneys cannot handle an overload of toxins the skin and also tongue become more active pathways of toxin release. Many people with the classic white tongue symptom of candida still retain the white tongue after the candida is cured until their body has eventually become detoxified enough for the kidneys to resume the major part of the load.

Sweating can also be a sign of hormone imbalance. The book that Polly recommends by John Lee, MD is excellent and, in my opinion, should be required reading for every woman. I related with your comments about the misdiagnoses and fears instilled by the medical profession. I went to various specialists over seven years and most of them expected that I had AIDS or some form of severe immune dysfunction. The tests I was submitted to were scary, painful, and expensive. The doctors begin by ruling out the most common disorder and then proceed on to the more exotic, leaving you composing your Last will and Testament while you wait for your test results. What they don’t realize is candidiasis is probably one of the most common. The only immune dysfunction I had was allergies. I have been candida free since October and am still working on the allergies, but I feel great for the first time in my life. No one will call you a hypochondriac here at the forum --- all views accepted with an open mind. Welcome!

Polly: Cold sweats are often associated with hypoglycemia. Dr. Freinkel and Dr. Molar suggest that the low body temperature or the inability to regulate the temperature of the body might be caused by the lack of glucose in the brain’s hypothalamus. Of course, if you listen to Broda Barnes, MD, you will realize that additional thyroid will help reduce the symptoms of hypoglycemia.

The Zone diet seems particularly appropriate here with its goal of keeping the insulin levels constant. In order to control the hypoglycemia, your liver must destroy the insulin once it has done its job. Pantethenic acid is required to do that, and so large quantities of this B vitamin may be helpful.

Vitamin D is important for the health of the pancreas. Chromium, vanadium, and MSM will support the pancreas’s production of insulin. Personally, I found that chromium picolinate helped me regulate my sugar levels better than chromium GTF. However, if you have diabetes, it is important that you ask your doctor before experimenting with these metals. They may cause too great of a change in your insulin levels if not handled properly.

In the book Nutrition and Mental Illness by Carl Pfeiffer, PhD, MD, he states that all their hypoglycemic patients were deficient in manganese. Pfeiffer’s suggestion of manganese is probably important. A small amount of this supports the thyroid too. Pfeiffer’s suggestions include 15 mg of zinc, 20 mg of manganese, 1000 mg of C, chromium GTF, vegetable protein, and B6 to dream recall. (Increase B6 dose until you can start to remember your dreams.)

I’ve a comment on Pfeiffer’s suggestion regarding B6 and dream recall. I was taking 150 mg of coenzyme B6 per day, and I was still not having any dream recall. It wasn’t until I added a small amount of taurine (500 to 1000 mg per week) that I started recalling my dreams. Inadequate zinc can interfere with dream recall too. I think natural progesterone plays a role in dream recall. Several friends and myself have noticed that the natural progesterone seems to increase dream recall. Maybe it is because progesterone improves the use of B6.

Allergy To Yeast

JVT: Recently I was diagnosed with a candida allergy. Has anyone heard of this and is it the same candida discussed on this forum? I have been sick for many years and recently have developed an unexplained rash! Any comments would be appreciated.

Sally: Many people with candida overgrowth develop candida allergies and consequently a host of mold allergies. Having candida and candida allergies is equivalent to someone allergic to cats wearing a cat around their neck all the time. Treatment is kill the candida and get allergy testing and shots to all allergens. Also important is avoiding foods with molds and yeasts --- that means fermented products (especially beer and wine), dried vegetable products like fruits, teas, nuts, seeds, etc and make sure all foods are fresh and well washed. Try small amounts of foods you have doubts about, before increasing your intake --- to see how you react to them. As your symptoms clear your reactions will be more obvious. Keep a food diary to make delayed reactions easier to track.

Some people’s skin rashes (especially on the face) are an allergic reaction to the fungus that causes dandruff. Using a dandruff shampoo can clear this. A small study, reported at Medscape, recently showed a correlation between asthma and allergies to skin and nail fungus.

The allergy tests I have used and had excellent results with are provocation/neutralization testing, from Sherry Rogers, MD in Syracuse, NY. I believe this method to be far superior to the standard extracts, as the dosages are designed specifically to each individual. It requires retesting yearly as your allergies improve. The shots are shipped to you to be administered by your local physician. Inquire to see if anyone in your local does this method. If not, a trip for testing once a year is well worth the results of immediate improvement in symptoms.

JVT: Obviously, I am on to something here. Now that I know I most likely have an overgrowth, what is the most important thing I can do? I was on the Atkins High Protein Diet / Low Carbohydrate and I did feel much better. I know I need to change my eating style, but what else should I do?

Sally: As long as you are already on the limited diet it can be a good time to also do an elimination diet, to check for food allergies. As your symptoms clear, reactions will be more obvious. High protein does not mean high fat so read up on balancing your essential fatty acids. No hydrogenated oils and small amounts of butter to provide the needed cholesterol. Some people do well on meats and others do better on a strict vegetable diet. Some tolerate small amounts of whole grains, and others do not. Read up on essential fatty acids. Supplementing with small amounts of Omega 3 or 6 or both can make a difference for many. It takes about 6 months to give yourself an oil change. Don’t become overwhelmed with the amount of information. Only make one change at a time so you can gauge the affect.

Assess what you believe are the biggest factors for you and address them first. In some people this may be their environment. Your bedroom is a place where you should be recovering and healing. You spend 6-8 hours there every day, this is a place that should be made as clean as possible. Make your bedroom an allergy free zone by removing needless dust catchers, frequent damp dusting, air filter, cotton bed clothes, no carpets, etc. Extreme measures here may be required for the most allergic. There are many things you can do in relationship to allergy. Read and experiment, and be your own detective as everyone is different. Vitamin C acts as an antihistamine. These are just a few suggestions and there is a lot more out there.

Polly: Please be careful with the amount of essential fatty acids that you try. Too much will hinder your recovery, and may possibly initiate a migraine. (Read more about the oils in book 4.)

Carpal Tunnel

Jason: I was wondering if anyone here has had any problems with carpal tunnel. It seems it is kind of related to the type of fibromyalgia pain that comes often with candida. At least that is how it “feels.” They are finding that more and more different things can cause carpal tunnel, such as thyroid problems. Some people are thinking that it is not as related to repetitive motions as was once thought. Anyway, I had it a year ago, it completely went away and now it’s coming back pretty bad. I don’t spend much time at the computer. Any experiences or advice? Thanks so much.

Susan in Olympia: Hi Jason. Do you get it in one or both wrists? I had it very bad in 1997 from January to July. It was so bad I couldn’t sleep and could not use my hands at all (for writing, combing my hair, opening the door, etc) In March I ran into a nurse who told me it could be caused by a hypothyroid condition. My doctor checked my thyroid and it was quite low, so she prescribed more Synthroid than I had already been taking, and by July the pain had mostly dissipated. Notice that I started the new thyroid dosage in March, but the pain didn’t go away until July. My doctor said this was normal because it takes a while for the effect to kick in. In the meantime I was in agony. At that same time I had a lot of muscle pain and joint pain as well (could be the fibromyalgia pain you refer to).

Jason: Susan, thanks for your response. I tested fine for thyroid levels but that doesn’t always tell the true story of how your body is USING the hormone. A more naturally oriented doctor put me on a very low dose of Armour thyroid because I had so many of the hypothyroid symptoms and I’m hoping that that helps. I just have it in my left wrist, same as last time. Did you find anything that helped the pain? I’m afraid to take ibuprofen (although I do to some degree) because of leaky gut problems.

Susan in Olympia: My doctor (a MD) had me on ibuprofen around the clock, but it didn’t help much at all (and probably added to the gut problems). That pain is so intense, it is hard to find anything that helps. When it was really intolerable I took hydrocodon, which is a narcotic painkiller. I was breast feeding my son at the time, so I really avoided taking hydrocodon unless I absolutely had to. The doctor also prescribed amitryptiline to help me sleep but I barely took any at all. My whole problem sleeping was the pain. I wish you the best and sincerely hope you find answers and get over the pain. It is very difficult to live with. Thinking of you and hoping you get better, Susan.

Shelley: Jason, there is a lot written on B6 (you would have to find references. I think there is a book put out by Avery Publishing on B6 at high doses...) for carpal tunnel.

Polly: There are several deficiencies / problems associated with yeast overgrowth that are also associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. These are low coenzyme B6, low thyroid, low sulfur, and low biotin. This is probably why Dr. Truss noticed the increased incidence of carpal tunnel syndrome in his yeast syndrome patients. The usual dose of biotin used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome is rather large, 900 mg. (The biotin should be balanced with another B vitamin/sugar called inositol.) If you aren’t mercury poisoned, you can try MSM sulfur (start slow). Solgar makes a supplement of coenzyme B6 that they call P5P. Country Life makes one that they call “Active B6.” TMG is also something to consider. It helped one of the people at the forum with their carpal tunnel syndrome. An enzyme called serrapeptase has shown promise in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. [12] Serrapeptase is made both by Carotec http://www.carotec.com and Cardiovascular Research/ Ecological Formulas, phone (800) 351-9429.

Mitral Valve Prolapse

Polly: People with the yeast syndrome, fibromyalgia or multiple chemical sensitivity are more likely than others to have a heart condition called mitral valve prolapse. [16] In fact, Leo Galland found that almost half of those being treated for chronic Candida albicans infections also had mitral valve prolapse. [17] If you have this problem, consider a supplement of the amino acid taurine. This was found to be low in the heart muscle of those with mitral valve prolapse. [18] With mitral valve prolapse, the body appears to have a problem with controlling the release of noradrenaline and adrenaline. Salt can help control this release. Also, taurine will inhibit the release of adrenaline. (If you try taurine, be sure to take taurine with a meal because taurine can increase stomach acid secretion.) Taurine may increase yeast growth, so perhaps wait until after you have been on the diet and other medications for a while. (Book 6 has a little more information about the amino acid taurine. It seems to be beneficial for many conditions related to dysbiosis.) Any magnesium deficiency should be corrected early since it is strongly associated with the development of mitral valve prolapse. [19] Coenzyme Q10 can be helpful.

Practice slow deep breathing. This may help with the panic attacks associated with the condition. Extending your abdomen with each breath tends to be more relaxing and should help get a panic attack under control more quickly. Also, try to control the hypoglycemia. To control the hypoglycemia, you need to support your thyroid and adrenals. I used to have the skipped heartbeats and occasional speed-ups and slow-downs of my heart. However, this stopped once I got some thyroid. I still have the floppy valve though. Please note that even though this is a “heart” condition, it is not a weak heart. You still need a reasonable amount of exercise. Other very valuable suggestions are in the booklet Natural Therapies for Mitral Valve Prolapse by Ronald L. Hoffman, MD. It is a bit technical, but it is an outstanding booklet. It is available from the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation, website http://www.price-pottenger.org and phone (800) 366-3748.

Breathing Difficulties

Mrs. Generic: Does anyone else experience breathing difficulties due to candidiasis? Do you get an itchy ear and throat?

Lynn of Virginia: Asthma was my first symptom of candida. Of course, I did not know it at the time. The doctors didn’t either, because it took 12 doctors to finally get a correct diagnosis and medications for asthma. I took the medicines for 10 years and finally quit smoking and went off them. I have an occasional problem but it is usually environmental. I suggest going to an allergist and preferably one who tests for allergy to candida. I was tested and treated. It has been the number one treatment that I have received for this inability to breath, itchy eared, swollen throat, stuffed up feeling.

I do believe that candida interferes with the bodies ability to use oxygen efficiently. Anything you can do to help with this...do! I found that aerobic exercise helps a lot and I have heard it mentioned that chlorophyll helps. I have tried it and feel that it is beneficial. Coenzyme Q10 is another supplement that I cannot be without for this. It has been proven that us candida people have a much greater need for magnesium. Magnesium will cure an asthma attack for me. I take it generously. I take Breathe Aid from Natures Way when I am really in trouble but prefer to “cure” it with magnesium, pantethenic acid and vitamin C.

Many of us have a somewhat hypothyroid condition and this also may contribute to this inability to breathe feeling. Best of luck finding a doctor to help you with this! First mention candida and then hypothyroid and...Whew! Get ready for the prescription for antidepressants and anti-anxiety. Ain’t it fun to have something that only us other kooks believe in?

Polly: When serotonin is outside of the cells, it causes bronchial constriction. Unsaturated oils will cause serotonin to leak out of cells. Thus seed oils could be contributing to your asthma. So be careful and avoid excess use of these oils. Glycine couteracts many of the unwanted effects of serotonin. It might be worth a try. However, you would have to be very careful with it since last year you said that trimethylglycine would give you an asthma attack. Since glycine can increase the growth of some pathogens, it might even be harmful for some people.

Recently, I attended a conference on probiotics. In one of the lectures, they were talking about how TNF (tumor necrosis factor) was a key player in both asthma and inflammation of the gut. By injecting just the DNA from probiotic bacteria, they were able to lower the TNF and relieve the asthma. This DNA treatment also reduces the inflammation of colitis. [20] (If you methylated the DNA, the treatment didn’t work.) In contrast, subjecting the body to the LPS found in gram-negative bacteria, like E. coli, increases TNF and causes hyperreactivity of the airways. [21] Finally, we have a clue that may explain the connection between asthma and disrupted gut flora! This is also a clue as to why glycine is helpful and why excess serotonin is harmful in asthma. Glycine lowers TNF; serotonin increases TNF. [22] Since coconut and fish oil lower TNF, these might be helpful in the diet. [23]

Also make sure you have enough copper. Copper is needed to form enzymes that break down histamine and serotonin. Copper seems to be pretty important in some cases of asthma. Performing the Heimlich Maneuver once or twice a week keeps bronchi free of mucus and can reduce or eliminate the need for medications. However, you need to be taught how to do it properly so that you do not bruise yourself. Only a gentle smooth pressure is needed to expel mucous. The Heimlich Maneuver is also very effective in emergency situations. [24]

There is another remedy that I recently came across.

“When test subjects with asthma took 250 mg of shark liver oil, three times a day, investigators reported complete recoveries after six months of treatment.” [25]

250 mg of shark liver oil is a tiny amount. It would not be a big unsaturated oil load on the body. There are many places to purchase shark liver oil. Here is one place, http://www.naturesdistributors.com or phone (800) 624-7114.

(More information about glycine and serotonin’s relationship to dysbiosis is in book 5 and 7.)
