A common query we’ve encountered is: Is psoriasis the same as Candida? Is there a connection between the two? The answer is, there is a significant link. A study conducted in 2001 explored the bowel flora of a vast number of psoriasis patients. The results revealed that over three quarters of psoriasis sufferers also have Candida albicans. This highlights a profound correlation between yeast infections and conditions like psoriasis and even psoriatic arthritis.
We have touched upon this topic extensively in our book, Candida Crusher. One of our publications, which spans over 240 pages, delves deep into understanding Candida and its potential link with psoriasis. Through our observations and research, we’ve noticed that treating psoriasis patients for yeast infections often yields impressive results. Many individuals with psoriasis have sugar cravings and display the signs and symptoms of a Candida yeast infection. While we wouldn’t assert that psoriasis is Candida, the connection is undeniably robust. Especially when considering that such a significant proportion of psoriasis patients in a study involving over 200 individuals showed a considerable incidence of Candida. It’s essential to be aware of this if you are dealing with psoriasis. It’s worth noting that in many autoimmune diseases, there seems to be an underlying thread of yeast infection.
