If you’re dealing with candida, it’s likely you’ve got at least some of the most common symptoms. Foggy thinking, food cravings, or any kind of yeast/fungal infection is considered typical.

But what about some of the lesser-known symptoms? Sometimes knowing about these can help diagnose and treat a candida infestation, too.

In today’s video, I talk about the little-known symptoms of hair loss as it relates to candida overgrowth. 

Question: Have you experienced hair loss because of candida? Did it grow back once your candida was under control? What did you do about it? Please share in the comments!

  3. Hi Ricki. I had hair loss 3 months into the anti candida diet. I did not take any prescription drugs and only used some herbal remedies like oil of oregano, grapeseed extract etc. I went to see a naturopath who said my iron was low, even though my doctor said it was normal. I took iron supplements and increased my carbs (keeping to gluten free whole grains). I had dropped about 20 pounds and my weight was too low for me. It took 4 months but my hair finally stopped falling out. I feel I lost about 1/4 of my hair. It is growing back and I’m not worried about it any longer. I will say that I was very upset by the hair loss. I started to notice a lot of women with really thin hair. I should add for those who don’t know that it is important to not take iron without a doctor’s recommendation as it is dangerous to have too much iron. I think you look great. Thanks for the video.

    • Thanks so much for sharing, Darlene. I think that’s a really important reason to add to why we might experience hair loss. As I mentioned in the video, people with candida (and leaky gut) are often deficient in key nutrients, so it makes sense that iron might end up lower, too. So glad it worked out for you! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your experience 🙂 Your hair really does look great! I haven’t experienced hair loss to such an extent although I have noticed I lose a lot more when my health is low. I am really glad to know that it is a possible symptom of Diflucan. I only took it for 2 weeks years ago, and I hope I can maintain my health without it, but if I do need to take it again some day this “heads up” will really help inform my decision and prepare me.
