I’m not sure how long I have been suffering from candida, but the last year or two I have had it for sure. I use Kiss my Face toothpaste – it has sorbitol in it. I’m a little disappointed in my doctor He said I have leaky gutt and my blood test showed Candida too. He is an MD but prizes himself on curing you not masking your problems. He did not recommend any other diet changes except to add more fruits and veggies. I think he was looking at the fact that I was a fast food everyday kinda girl and I loved sugar, plus I drank about 3 Mello Yellows a day. He said he wasn’t going to take anything away from me he just wanted me to add the fruits and veggies. I’m really afraid now about this Diflucan, I don’t know if I should just finish the second month or if thats too long. I know the candida is still in my body but I do feel better. My ears ring alot, I have not got any yeast infections but I have had a diaper rash a couple times in the last 2 years – I thought it was an allergy. Now I just have an irritation down there. I get stomache aches alot when I eat – I don’t know if it is the Diflucan or Candida. I have quit pop completely – when I crave badly I have diet coke. The Candida diet is very difficult for me but I do want to get better. If I eat a little sugar will it sabbotage everything? Is brown rice syrup ok? I have changed my diet drastically, but not as crazy as the Candida Diet. This summer I tried the fat belly cure and then fell off the boat (you cut your suger to 15g sugar a day)I lasted like 3 days and lost 5 pounds. When I went back to old habits the Candida hit me, well I think anyway, but a year ago I had side effects of Candida and was in to the doctor seeing if I had a UTI or yeast and both times that doctor said no. I even had an alergy test with my natural MD – no allergies. I have ear nose and throat irritation all the time. Since I changed my diet I lost about 15 pds. most of it the first week and a half. Now I weigh 125 pds. I did cut even fruit my first week and I did sleep better, but I didn’t know anything about dieoff and thought I was getting worse. So I guess a strict diet is vital, but when you start to feel better you think you can eat more. Oh boy what a battle. Thanks for responding to me, I am going to try another probiotic with more strains. I am going broke though with all these different supplements.
