The most mentioned causes are:
- mercury poisoning
- problems with the methylation cycle (mostly genetics)
- antibiotics use
- ph imbalance
It is probably a combination of these causes and a (genetically?) weak immune system which makes this occur.
The overly use of sugar doesn’t lead to candida, but it does stress certain organs. The reason to go for a low carb diet is to elevate the symptoms and give your body the ability to cure itself. As long as the real cause of the candida overgrowth is not found, the candida will probably return once you go back on your previous diet.
I’m still working on why I got candida. So far, I haven’t found anything.
I hope to do a mercury/methylation test soon.
I know it will probably come back. Sigh.
Thats why I am putting alot of hours into reading.
Im so sorry you havent found your trigger yet. I feel your frustration, not knowing is worse than having a clear path,no matter how rough.
I cant imagine why this shows up after feeling so incredibly good.
I know there must have been a trigger. Im kind of looking into a pattern with (of all things) hair-coloring. My hair is black and lapis blue, and unless you also color your hair, you dont realize that we inadvertently ingest these chemicals while in the shower,in the rain…
Im really vibing with my issue being the transition of the yeast to the fungal stage, and what is triggering that transition, because I know I have always had yeast since I have had antibiotics from an early age.
Especially since my last round of antibiotics 3 years ago was taking 3-4 different ones at the same time. That probably sealed my fate right there.
And now my 12 yr old is going through all this too…and just got off antibiotics recently.
Candida is a nightmare.
I guess the gift here is that your attention is now on health and well being, which can be huge if your like me and had times where you worked 80 hours a week to make ends meet.
I abused myself because you think there is no other way, but candida says you have to find another way because stress aint your friend,lol.
