Candida Overgrowth and Lipomas

Post by gogocardigan » Wed Aug 29, 2018 4:18 pm

Hi All,

New here and wondered if I could vent for a minute!

I have noticed over the last 3-5 years more and more lipomas in my abdomen, back and forearms. I gave up counting at 45-50 but they are really annoying me now! I have several very noticeable ones on my right outer forearm and thighs and my eldest daughter noticed a large(ish) lump on my back. This really upset me!

Why I've called this "candida overgrowth & lipomas" is I have, for the last 18months to 2 years suffered with continuous illnesses that I believe relate to an overgrowth of candida in my body; I also strongly feel that this has caused the lipomas. I'm now trying to sort these issues from a "holistic" point of view but it is tough going; especially sticking to a strict diet and supplement regime.

I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced this and also thought there to be a link between the two? I'd love to get others experiences and tricks to help me beat this as I am at my wits end and do not know how I can cope moving forwards...

Hi there are lots of evidence candida (or some other form of microbe) playes a role when it comes to lipomas. By using the search you may find many threads: Candida and Lipomas

And this is a long thread but has a lot of good info: What causes lipomas

If you are looking at this and are looking at means of treating the Candida, I would reccomend CCWS. It’s almost chemo for fungus, in fact maybe it is... but if you have Candida and want to be rid of it in 45 days the Quick way, follow the instructions to a T.

I have yet to be able to make it that far, I can usually get 1-2 weeks of treatment in before it becomes too much for me.

I too have Candida and over 50 lipomas and believe the two of them to be connected.

I certainly don't mind trying this out ... but a question I have is what makes you stop after couple of weeks? Is it some adverse reaction? Or is it just not being able to follow schedule?

Whereas I don't disagree that Candida can be a cause ... if you think ... probably 2% (just a number I made up) of population have Lipomas ... but probably 20% (again just a number but probably must be higher than this) have Candida .. so not all of them get Lipomas!

I was initally very skeptical in reading about the Candida-Lipoma connection. And have been for years.

However, recently I was suffering from what doctors told me was eczema on my ankles. This "eczema" didn't respond to usual steroid treatments (e.g. Kenalog), in fact it got worse. Out of desperation, I tried OTC medications targeted at psoriasis, and in particular, coal tar cream had some success. But that didn't cure it. For a couple of days, I took ibuprofen for a dull headache and joint pain, and the next few days the "eczema" decreased. I did some research, and found that NSAIDs have a negative impact on Candida. And most of the symptoms I've been experiencing, a whole constellation of them, fit into the Candida narrative. For OTC and relatively liver+kidney safe anti-Candida medication, it seems the gold standard is Aspirin, which is very cheap and safe as far as medicines go.

It's been a few days that I've been taking 500mg of Aspirin every 12 hours, and: my brain fog has lifted, my skin is clearing (for the first time in over a year), and I have a good amount of energy (far more than usual, lately). Except for the skin clearing, these are all possibly just the usual effects of aspirin (anti-inflammatory + pain relief); or it may be helping to clear some of the Candida away. I guess I'll see in a couple of weeks when I'm off the Aspirin if there's any lasting impact.

My 100+ lipomas are still here, but they are hurting much less.

I don't know if there's a connection between Candida and lipomas, but I'm very open to the idea.
