Candida can cause fatigue on multiple levels. Many people with a yeast problem are tired. They’re either mentally tired, emotionally tired, or physically tired. I regularly see fatigue pattern in all three of those areas in my clients with Candida.
Candida is a major disrupter of the bowel flora. It creates a lot of mycotoxins. These poisons jam up the immune system, which in turn becomes over-responsive. Candida can cause inflammation throughout the body and interfere with levels of beneficial bacteria. The ability of beneficial bacteria to produce vitamins becomes impaired, and fatigue sets in.
It’s also very common to hear clients complain of fatigue during the Candid cleansing process. People can because increasingly tired as the Candida cleansing process proceeds.

I always tell my clients that it’s essential to time their Candid cleanse properly. You need to keep in mind that the first seven to ten days of a Candida cleanse may be exhausting. Some clients chose to take some time away from work for that reason.
The fatigue that stems from a Candida cleanse can range from mild to extreme. It really depends on the severity of the Candida infection. One of the benefits of doing a comprehensive stool analysis is that you’ll have some idea of your Candida level before starting the cleanse. The extent of your Candida will let you know what level of fatigue to expect if you push the body too hard during the cleanse. If you remember not to push too hard, you can still cleanse the body of Candida without experiencing significant fatigue.
Fatigue can also be caused by several other conditions unrelated to Candida. Get the symptom checked out if it’s severe and doesn’t seem to correlate with the severity of your Candida infection.
