    A naturopathic doctor recommended my wife try using MSM as an anti-fungal in treating her for candidiasis. She just started taking it and is wanting some information on it. There seems to be surprisingly little to no research info available online about MSM for candida (although it is a great joint support/anti-inflammatory aid).

    I found some info on one website (Nutriteam.com – they sell MSM), but nothing from any truly accountable sources (like Mayo Clinic). Does anyone know of any research info on MSM treatment of candidaisis that is clinical and non-biased? Looking for facts, not advertisements or opinions. Thanks!

    There’s an overview on Wikipedia with many links to other informational sites at the bottom of the page.

    Information on MSM has been suppressed by the FDA who views it as a potentially damaging substance. It isn’t all that different from bleach and people who sell it can get sued. I would be very careful taking it or consider not taking it.

    But don’t they put MSM with glucosamine in a lot of supplements? I will have to ask about this at work.

    I may be confused with MSM and MMS and if I did get confused, I apologize.

    As I said, it is a joint support supplement, and correct about it being used with glucosamine and chondriton (Trader Joe’s sells the one I take daily). I don’t know about MMS, don’t really want to.

    Not sure I consider Wikipedia to be a reliable source for research data or facts, Floggi. If only Mayo Clinic had something!

    I am not sure about how reliable this website is, but it seemed to have a nice overview of MSM.

    Thanks, Kag. Again, a mysterious lack of mentioning MSM to treat Candidaisis! Seems if it were beneficial there would be something. My wife switched her anti-fungal back to grapefruit seed extract, since MSM did not seem to make any difference. All other changes she made in anti-fungal resulted in a noticeable difference, except for when she switched to MSM. Still, if anyone finds any research info, please post for future benefit.

    The only thing to watch out for is it’s quite powerful at drawing toxins out of the body. If you’re already detoxing from die-off, MSM could hit your wife hard. My recommendation would be to try epsom salts first (in the bath). If this proves difficult to tolerate, I would steer clear of MSM. Epsom salts leave me feeling dreadful, so I’ve never gone beyond considering MSM.

    It says something very briefly about potential antimicrobial and antifungal uses but it is very brief and obviously not proven. I believe that the primary use for MSM in the past has mainly been for it’s anti-inflammatory functions.
