Chronic yeast and Lyme

by Lisa Gaines
(Raleigh, NC)

My daughter has had Lyme for 30 yrs. She was only diagnosed a couple of years ago. Her immune system is so beat down it doesn't function. Because of this, she has a horrible Candida/yeast problem. Her scalp itches horribly and her arm pits are red, swollen, and painful.

She hasn't had sugar in years, she doesn't eat bread. Her diet is so restricted I worry about her nutrition, but she doesn't eat the things that feed the yeast. She is also on several supplements.

Is there anything else you can recommend that won't set off a herx reaction? Thank you!

Hi Lisa,

If she has skin yeast as well as intestinal yeast, she needs to treat the outside while treating the inside.

There's a possibility that the external yeast could be of a type that consumes fats for food so it is best to avoid coconut oil. Instead use grapefruit seed extract, oregano oil, or cinnamon oils diluted with distilled water. If its not a fat consuming yeast then olive oil works well for dilution. The over the counter creams such as Lamisil and Micatin often work well.

When dealing with a possible intestinal herx reaction, it is best to start at lower doses. If a biofilm digesting enzyme causes a reaction, try using just a yeast cleansing probiotic by itself for a couple weeks. At that point you can usually introduce the enzymes back in with no reaction. Go another two weeks then add yeast cleansing herbs.

All you can do is to take it slow starting at low doses and work up as you are able.
