Is Psoriasis Candida
Thank you for checking out my tutorial today.Question I got asked by a person recently is, is psoriasis Candidaé Are they the sameéAre they linkedé Is there any connection between them bothé Well, there is. In fact,2001, a studywas performed by Waldman regarding many, many different psoriasis patients to see what thebowel flora was like, what type of problems these patients had, and what Waldman foundis that the many people,fact, over three quarters of people with psoriasis have Candidaalbicans. Thereï¿½s a big link between yeast infection and psoriasis and also psoriaticarthritis.
Iï¿½ve written about this extensivelymybook. Itï¿½s the fourth booka series Iï¿½ve written called the ï¿½The Psoriasis Program.ï¿½Thirteen books Iï¿½ve written for psoriasis patients, and one of them,fact, explainsabout the connection, a 240page book, it talks a lot about Candida, how it can be connectedon the psoriasis. With all psoriasis patients, I tend to treatthem for a yeast infection. I get a fantastic result when I do this. Many psoriasis patientshave sugar cravings and manifest the signs and symptoms of a Candida yeast infection,so I believe there is a very strong connection between psoriasis and Candida.
I wouldnï¿½t go as far as to say that psoriasisis Candida, but the connection is extremely strong. And if three quarters of people ina longterm study involving over 200 psoriasis patients is showing quite a large incidenceof Candida, then itï¿½s something that you need to take seriously if youï¿½ve got psoriasis.In fact,most autoimmune diseases, youï¿½ll find some undercurrent of yeast infection,so thatï¿½s worth bearingmind. I hope that answers your question. Thanksfor tuning in.

that the skin cells are turning over very,very quickly, overgrowing and so you get a lot of scale on the surface because, and thickness,because the skin can't shed ittime. ( Peter Salgo)A piling up from belowé ( Alexa Kimball)The other interesting thing is that you do get more blood vessels that grow to supportall of that growth and that gives it the very red, ugly look that people really don'tlike.
