I get migraines, a sore throat, the inability the concentrate, and dizzy from just the slightest hint of perfume or chemicals.
Im convinced this is how I got candida in the first place as I was having severe allergic reactions to things where I was breaking out in hives every day. They tried to treat this by giving me heavy doses of prednisone, anti-histamines, antacids, and antibiotics. I didnt start having all the digestive problems until after this.
Candida Albicans polarizes the immune system toward to a Th2 immune response and inhibits Th1. It means, you will have a HYPER humoral immune response (hypersensitive to any external source including food) and a very depressed cell mediated immunity.
It is a classic symptom of this syndrome.
