How Nystatin Cures Psoriasis

In this post I would like to support the connection between psoriasis, yeast infections and the fact that it is possible to cure psoriasis with Nystatin or some other antifungal drug.

Nystatin is not the only option for intestinal yeast infection, but the advantage of Nystatin is that it is powerful fungistatic and fungicidal drug with low intestinal absorption.

The fungistatic means that it does not kill the existing yeast cells but interferes with the growth of the new ones, the fungicidal drug also kills the existing cells.

How do Yeast Infections cause Psoriasis?

It is easy – yeasts and fungi – may cause the systemic inflammation.

The mice study suggested “that gastrointestinal Candida colonisation promotes sensitisation against food antigens, at least partly due to mast cell mediated hyperpermeability in the gastrointestinal mucosa of mice.”[1]

In other words this means that if you have a Candida overgrowth in your intestines your body and immune system will be more sensitive to foreign protein like that from food.

This may explain why some people cleared up their psoriasis after they went on gluten-free or dairy-free diets.

The scientists in the 1960’s suggested that even the cells of Candida albicans themselves contain some endotoxin-like material.[2]
