How long have you been trying to get over candida?
Thanks I will try that simple aproach.
It “started” like 15 years ago (in my teen years), I was treated with the Candida Diet 1 year or so later, I felt better inmediatelly after the diet, months later I simply forgot about it, but have always had several recurring mild sicknesses since then, I never related them to Candida though, these have become more and more intense and frequent over the years.
A whole new batch of intense symptoms started several months ago… probably more than a year ago… after seing a Gastroenterologists and a Gynecologist with no positive results, my mom suggested the same “Candida” Dr. who is both Allopath and Holistic, I didn´t even think it could be Candida before she mentioned it.
So, I have been on the Diet for a month now, which confirmed Candidiasis inmediatelly. I am still struggling with it, as it seems to be severe this time. =(
