    hi i am a 51 year old with hypothyroidism which is under control. I have been having hormonal problems for over 4 years now. I have been told by a specialist i have systemic candida which can cause hormonal disturbances. Can you get this with the menopause? I have tried so many different things to treat my menopause symptoms but have recently started menopause support which has helped but i am still having candida which even comes down my nose. My main problems are my muscle and joint pains which are causing my joints to crack. I really didnt want to go on hrt but went back to the doctors reently as felt i could not cope any longer, I was told i am unable to have it due to an abnormal breast biopsy that puts me at risk of developing breast cancer. Please can you help?

      Hi Sam, Falling oestrogen levels make your digestion more sluggish, which isn't great for countering Candida infestation. Having low thyroid function can also contribute to a slow gut transit time, which again doesn't help. You could use Yarrow Complex alongside Menopause Support to help strengthen your digestion response, which will help banish the Candida.

      Soya might not work for women with thyroid issue, even make it worse. I tried soy isoflavons made me gain weight.

      is there anything else i can use for the joint and muscle problems, I am concerned about them and it is having a major impact on my life now. I even get painful teeth and my hair is falling out. I certainly feel better on the menopause support but am struggling with these other issues still.

      Hi Samantha, With such severe symptoms I suggest that you consult a nutritional practitioner locally, via www.bant.org.uk, as they will be able to take a full medical history and monitor you through an individual programme, whilst liaising with the doctor if appropriate. Best Wishes, Eileen

      Hi Sveda You are right in that whole soya foods should be avoided if you have thyroid issues. However, our Menopause Support contains fermented soya which is different so we have no contraindications listed taking it if you are on thyroid medication.
