OH!!! And the cause of my Candida was from extensive antibiotics (EVERY MONTH I was on antibiotics for over A YEAR!!) around age 7 to fight continuous ear infections/strep throat which turned out to be from my tonsils. Had those removed and the infections stopped. However during that time I had a few yeast infections, and so many, SO many signs of Candida that followed with me since, which unfortunately I had no idea was Candida. It wasn’t until a holistic doctor informed me about Candida and helped me get my life on track. Sadly, as I said, I fell off the wagon and have experienced worse symptoms than I did before I started.
The worst part is, after my tonsil surgery and my mother realizing all the antibiotics I was on, the doctor told my mother that she had to give me all those antibiotics because the health insurance companies will not help with the surgery unless it is the last option. How ridiculous is that?? I would not be shocked to learn that is still the protocol today, but to think of how many people had to go through the same thing as me who are not aware of candida.
