Raster, what are the parasites you are speaking of? Last spring I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), and went on the strict diet for candida shortly after. I have not ovulated in over two years (I am twenty-one), and had decided that my body must have been so taxed by the candida overgrowth and my hormones had been so thrown off that my body could no longer handle a regular menstrual cycle. Does any of this make sense? I have been on the diet for almost five months, with some difficulties along the away figuring out which foods I can and cannot eat, but even now that I am on a relatively strict diet plan I do not feel significantly different from before I began the diet. And of course I have still not ovulated, which is worrisome for a variety of reasons, one of which being that without that monthly flush of the uterus the lining builds up and can make one more susceptible to ovarian cancer. I would love to know if anyone else is dealing with this same problem, and if it is candida related.
