I had one viewer send me this question: “I’ve got fungal dandruff on my scalp, would diet help reduce dandruff? Or just shampooing? I also have dandruff in my beard, and my mustache and gaps are increasing in it. Sometimes my whole body itches. Is this eczema, Candida, or all of them? I also have a poor digestive function and brain fog. Please reply. I’m desperate, just tell me what this disease is?”
Firstly, I don’t think it’s necessary to be desperate. It may take some time, but these problems can get sorted out.
When a client comes to me concerned about dandruff, I have a lot of questions. I want to know what they are eating, what they are drinking, and the details of their lifestyle. Are they exercising, how is their sleep, what type of job do they have and are they suffering from significant stress?
I always ask about what supplements my clients are taking, and then I dig deeper to get any other relevant information that is missing.
- Unexplained Joint Pains & Candida Connection
- How Molybdenum Can Help Fight Against Candida Yeast Infection
- Everything You Need to Know about Aspergillus
- Recurring Ringworm: Can It Be Candida?
- Geotrichum and Yeast Infection: Are They Connected?
If the client also has poor digestive function and fog, there are several possibilities. It could be a bacterial problem, it could be Candida, maybe the problem is pancreatic dysfunction, or perhaps the bowel isn’t working right.
It’s not possible to know what’s going on without doing some investigations. Assuming that it must be Candida is not a smart thing to do. Over half of the patients I see who came to me convinced they had Candida, had no evidence of yeast on a comprehensive stool analysis (CSA).
In the case of this viewer’s situation, I would strongly recommend getting a CSA. You must know what is going on in the gut to design the right treatment plan. Once the foundation of health, the gut, has been addressed, we can move on to the scalp and face. Sometimes fixing the GI tract is enough to make those kinds of symptoms go away without any further intervention.
Remember, investigate, and then treat is the golden rule for managing your health.
