Are Night Sweats Connected To Candida

Greetings. It's Eric Bakker, naturopath fromNew Zealand, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of supplements.Thanks for tuning in. I've got a question here from a gentlemen in England, a Mr. PaulWilson from Sussex in the UK. Paul's asking me, quot;Eric are night sweats connected to Candida?Can Candida cause night sweats?quot; Let's have a look at different kinds of reasonswhy you can get night sweats first, Paul. In fact, there are about eight or nine differentreasons. I've just pulled up a list here and I'm going to go through a few things withyou to explain to you more about night sweats. Night sweats is a condition that we referto when you're in bed, you're got the covers

on you, you're sleeping, and you wake up reallyhot and sweaty as opposed to fevers, which can happen at night or during the day. Sofevers are almost every time immune related and usually involve some kind of infectionlike influenza, for example. There are different kinds of tropical diseases that can causefevers as well. Menopause. Obviously, you're a guy so I wouldn'texpect you to get the same kind of symptoms. Some men do go through what we call andropause,so they go through a kind of a male menopause. But many females go through perimenopauseand menopause. So the menarche is the beginning of the menses. The menopause is really theend of the menses. It can occur. I've got

some patients who go through menopause asyoung as 38 and some who go through it as old as 62. There is no sort of defined datehere, but I seem to find that probably I'd say mid to late 40s, between around 47 and52, seems to be the key age for development of menopause.So what happens in this situation is the ovaries that produce the bulk of the sex hormones,estrogen and progesterone, they start declining. So the feedback loop between the ovaries andthe pituitary is not so active anymore because the woman's active menstrual years are reallybehind her. She doesn't need to reproduce anymore. So the ovarian pituitary hypothalamicloop starts to slow down and the ovaries atrophy,

they shrivel up a bit, they get smaller. Whathappens is the woman will notice that her period may go into decline. She may have aheavy cycle one month and maybe skip one another month. Some women have a very smooth transition.Others will have a much harder transition. I find especially the women who go througha lot of stress have this because the adrenal glands make about 30 to 40 percent of thesex hormones, and the ovaries make the remainder. If a woman has had a huge amount of stressin her life raising teenagers, going through a divorce, gone through lots of financialhardship, she may have a considerable adrenal weakness or fatigue, so the adrenals at thispoint can't step up to the plate and deliver

the right level of hormones that the womanrequires, estrogen and progesterone, and DHEA in particular. As her ovarian function declines.This causes a disparity and this often for many women I see can create anxiety, hot flashing,grumpy person, libido can hit the floor, all sorts of things can occur. And particularlythe lack of estrogen, we find the hot flashes occurring. And they can typically occur atnight in bed where she can throw off the covers. Husband can be cold. She can be hot. So thecovers can go on and off all night. Hot flashes in this case can often be accompaniedwith mood disorders, anxiety or depression, tiredness, muscle pain and weakness. I findin my experience that low estrogen often occurs

commonly with low testosterone, so you maywant to go to a and get some salivary testing done. You can also get some urinarytests done now for metabolites. There is a really good lab called Precision Analyticalthat does what we call the Dutch test, which is superb for looking at the stress hormones,the sex hormones, and what we call the androgens as well. That's a very good test, the Dutchtest. That will determine what your level of hormones is like. If you're worried aboutmenopause, get tested and then get these levels of hormones balanced. Quite often, this willmake a big difference for menopausal night sweats.Idiopathic hyperhidrosis. Idiopathic means

Is Sweating Associated With Candida

I routinely get asked questions about perspirationand body odor, and this is the question. Is excess sweating associated with Candida? Iperspire a lot. Could this be a yeast infection? Well, it could be, but there could be manyother reasons why you potentially have this perspiration or this sweating problem. Nightsweats, for example, could be as a result of increased lymphatic activity or immuneactivity. We typically see that with conditions like TB, tuberculosis, or different typesof infections, influenzas, chest infections, and some ear, nose or throat infections cancause you to have this. If you've got dizziness associated with perspiration, for example,there could be something wrong with your nervous

system. It would pay to get checked out bythe . But sweating in general or just a heatnessof the body is actually quite common with Candida, and it occurs usually with fermentationdysbiosis or having these bacteria in the gut that ferment and can cause a heat or flushingor redness in the body. But this can happen any time of the day. If you associate theflushing and heat, perspiration, with body odor, there's a very strong possibility you'vegot SIBO or small intestinal bowel overgrowth because I do see this occurring with it. Peoplewith Candida often crave sugar. They bloat. They have gas. They burp. They fart, and theycan feel hot and sweaty as well. So these

things can commonly be associated with yeastinfection. These sorts of symptoms. Sweats in women can also be associated withperimenopause or menopausal complaints, low estrogen, low testosterone or estrogenprogesteroneimbalances. As you can see there are many reasons whyyou could have this clamminess or this perspiration. Some people with hypothyroid can also haveexcess sweating, so it might pay for you to go to the and get checked properlyand get some kind of a diagnosis before you immediately jump to conclusions with thissweating. So if in doubt, check it out. I hope thatanswers a few questions about perspiration,

sweating, and yeast infection. Thanks fortuning in.
