I don’t think those tests are very accurate all of the time. I personally think that the color of your tongue and symptoms are most important; if your tongue is white, then it means you are unhealthy in general. I personally think it means you have a yeast problem.
If you experienced die-off symptoms after restricting your diet, then I feel that there is a strong reason to suspect that you are ill with candida. An uber healthy person should experience no symptoms after doing those two things.
I think the protocol and candida diet can heal a lot of people at its foundation, the only problem is that it just takes time.
I feel that you are what you eat; if you eat mcdonalds, pizza, american diet, etc (unhealthy foods), this at the minimum should cause inflamation and a flora imbalance in the long term. Dr. Mcombs feels that any prior use of antibiotics is the main culprit, and its safe to say if you’ve taken antibiotics previously, then you have a flora gut imbalance.
