We aren’t going to say whether you have it or not because there is no way to know. However, you can get testing done to see if you have candida.
Dr. Mcoombs feels that candida can cause a variety of immune disorders and diseases including Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, arthritis, diabetes, etc. If you’ve ever taken antibiotics in your lifetime, this can cause a gut flora imbalance by itself. Additionally, he feels that anyone with skin disorders is not producing enough HCL (hydrochloric acid) and you can supplement this with something like zypan or betaine HCL and should notice an improvement.
Considering how much of an improvement you made over 6-7 days on the diet, I’d say there is a strong cause and effect relationship here between your diet and your health. Plan on a 6-18 month recovery timeline to get over years of living unhealthy and abusing the body.
As far as stages, this is what we follow on the forum:
stage 0: cleanse
stage 1: long term diet
stage 2: for when you get better and basically are symptom free
stage 3: long term healthy non-candida diet
So I guess I don’t know what stage you are on right now, but I basically would eat whatever agrees with your body and symptoms for now. Slowly work in foods as you get better.
