Evidence-based Candida information
for those who value logic and science


Candida cultureWondering what’s the deal with Candida and acne? Does it cause acne and what you can do about it? Want reliable answers that are based on science and evidence?

Then you are in the right place! I created this page for people just like you. To answer common questions and concerns acne sufferers have about Candida. And also to provide balance.

The web is littered with wild claims about Candida. Spend 5 to 10 minutes on those sites and it’s easy to think Candida is the root cause of acne. Unfortunately those claims are largely pulled out of thin air. They are not backed by any studies or credible evidence. Not only have that but the studies we have provided good evidence against those claims. So I wanted to create this page to provide a bit of balance to the endless hype.

While the advice provided on countless Candida website is usually harmless, and some diet-advice even borderlines good, it’s hard to tell where truth ends and fiction begins. This is important because there are consequences to uncritically accepting the wild claims. During the past 8 years in the natural health scene I’ve seen countless stories of people wasting months and years of their life on extremely strict diets. Diets that cause isolation by restricting your social life and stress because they are very hard to stick to. Others have wasted hundreds, and even thousands, of dollars on supplements and herbs that supposedly kill Candida. Most have little to show for their efforts.

This page is here to provide the other side of the story. So that you can be the judge and make an informed decision.
