Well, I don’t know what kind of medication would make you better lauren. You can get pharmaceutical grades of probiotics or antifungals, but these likely won’t be as good as other ones we recommend on the forum. I do not feel that medication can help anyone with their candida problem because it doesn’t heal you and doesn’t address the root cause of the problem.
I feel that supplements, vitamins, and diet can heal a person just as well.
Question: “how do you find a doctor who knows enough about it, when the doctors that are alternative don’t even know enough?”
Answer: Well, you may have just not found a good doctor that knows enough about candida to help you along. I found a naturopathic doctor in my town who has taught me a ton and I still learn from him about how the body works. He introduced me to SF722, HMF neuro, and a bunch of other supplements that are really helping me get better and make progress. He has clients/customers around the world and sends them packages; from Brazil to China. He treats you and not the candida.
I recently started to take a mineral vitamin called min-tran which contains iodine. This helps me with my “need to go urinate” problem in the night when I sleep. I wake up in the middle of the night often when I need to go. He also prescribed me another similar supplement that in general helps me sleep really solid. I have had chronic insomnia for over 10 years and I finally am getting level 4 sleep for the first time in many years.
I also had a problem with gas after eating protein throughout my treatment. He introduced me to zypan which not only completely eliminated my gas problem, but it healed my body by giving me minerals as well. Now I don’t need to take zypan because I do not have a gas problem anymore; the minerals have been absorbed and I am healed.
I look at my doctor as a “witch doctor” someone who busts out these random things I have never heard before that are very effective. While I did do a fairly good job learning myself, I feel that he knows a ton more than I ever would about people’s health and how the body works.
Just ranting here…
