I’ve been following the forums for a bit now. I’m seeing a Naturopath and have been following a candida diet for about 7 weeks now and am feeling much, much better.
And yes, I know someone who had a severe candida infection (including 2 hospitalizations and her weight went under 100 lbs). It took her about a year and a half with help from a naturopath and not cheating on her diet and she is well and healthy and eats normally. This was 20 years ago and I know there is much more information available now. So get as much help and information as you can and don’t cheat on your diet (I think this is a huge part of recovery).
