Night Sweats And Candida

I can remember before I knew I had candida, having terrible Night Sweats.  I mean they were so bad that I would wake up and the bed would be soaked,  and then that would make me shiver because I got cold.

I thought the sweats were menopause related....then I discovered I had candida.   I went on the Anti Candida Diet and also took a lot of antifungals.  

Between the diet and the antifungals, I no longer have night sweats.....  That makes me very happy because I had a heck of a time sleeping.   It seems I would just start falling asleep only to be snapped out of it by a hot flash coming on.    Very irritating to say the least.

Candida caused a lot of things to go wrong in my body.  I will be posting them all.
It seems my bad eating habits have come back to haunt me and I will be dealing with the effects for a very long time.

So ladies, give your night sweats a closer look, they may be caused from what you are eating and drinking and not menopause.

  1. I am so glad that is not one of the things I have had to deal with with my Candida. I think I am on the opposite end, I do not easily sweat. I was always grateful for that but now I am told I should sweat all I can because it helps cleanse the body of candida toxins.

  3. Hi Terry,

    Interesting blog you have here. I really believe candida causes a lot of symptoms that we think are due to other conditions. My psoriasis cleared up quickly once I eliminated sugar and white flour from my diet.

    All the best,

  6. I just have to be honest and say I had to google candida - never heard of it and had no clue. I have those lovely night sweats but I take Femara and previously took Tamoxifen so they are medically induced - still wouldn't hurt to elimimate a few (or lots) of things from my diet. Good information.

  11. My ex husband suffered from Candida - he refused to "treat" or do anything about it and still suffers a lot of symptoms. Night sweats was one of the worst for us/him. I worry about him to this day not taking care of himself properly! Very neat to find a blog with someone who suffers too. Thanks for sharing your journey!

    Thanks for the follow on my blog You Brew My Tea today - following back for sure!

  19. Hi, Thanks for dropping by my blog last Friday and for the follow. I'm following you back now. I've heard of people struggling with candida and I'm so glad you are on the upswing! I'm sure it must have taken incredible discipline to work on that. I have psoriasis and I can go for months at a time being really careful about what I eat, and then totally blow it! It's not easy, is it. I read your last post about chewing and it made me chuckle because my mother was always on my case when I was growing up to chew, chew, chew!

  21. New follower! I have been suffering night sweats the last three weeks. My husband thought maybe it was early menopause. I am familiar with candida and once started a cleanse for that. I was one who was drinking lot's of those cold coffee drinks from the store and drinking a lot of sweet tea. I did a candida spit test and I definitely have candida according to that, but had no idea it could cause night sweats. I am also highly active. I'm a half marathoner and currently training for a full marathon so I am putting in lots of mileage. I wonder if that has anything to do with this.

    I read where bamboo sheets help with absorbing the sweat so I am buying bamboo sheets. Last night I slept with towels underneath me and no clothing and slept without the heating blanket since I'm usually freezing when I get in bed. I felt no sweat.

    Can't wait to read more info on your blog.

  22. Hi Fran,
    Thank you for following, I will be over to follow you as soon as I am finished here.

    Sugar about did me in. I don't really have night sweats any longer but the bamboo sheet sound wonderful.

    Being a runner will only help if you have candida, exercise helps to get out the toxins.

    Good luck to you in your marathon.

    1. I don't get the night sweats any longer and am very happy about that. It was horrible waking up soaking with sweat.
