Does Candida Cause Migraine Headaches?

Candida can be a hidden cause for many different kinds of headaches, including migraine headaches, tension headaches and toxic headaches. A yeast infection can produces many different kinds of toxins including mannan and gliotoxin that may leak through microscopic junctions in small intestine (leaky gut syndrome) into the bloodstream and through to your body, causing various physiological changes, like hormone imbalance, inflammatory responses, and even problems in nerve conduction and circulatory systems, which in turn can cause various headaches, including migraine headaches.

Candida headaches can also come about due to blood sugar imbalances, sugar cravings, and the production of acetaldehyde, a chemical that resembles alcohol and can make a person feel literally “hung-over”, these headaches are not dissimilar to those experienced after too much alcohol has been consumed.
