Hi there, Erik Bakker once again with another
FAQ for Candida Crusher. Does lack of sleep cause a yeast infection? Well not really. A yeast infection is not
caused by a lack of sleep or insomnia. However, a lack of sleep can be a reason why a person
has developed adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue can create insomnia, and insomnia can create
adrenal fatigue. Insomnia can lead to reduced immune function, and a reduced immune function
can certainly increase your susceptibility towards a yeast infection by reducing your
immune resistance. So, good sleep is a very important part of
strong adrenal and hormonal health. When this becomes compromised, you can leave yourself
wide open to all sorts of infections: bacterial, viral, and also pathogens like yeast. So it’s
important for you to get good sleep. In other videos, I’ll be speaking more about
adrenal fatigue. I’d like you to pay attention particularly to adrenal fatigue and insomnia.
There’s quite a big link there. So, to answer that question, does a lack of
sleep cause a yeast infection? Indirectly, there is a link, but it’s not directly caused
by insomnia. Thank you.
