Candida Question #18 Can 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.
