In fact, a lot of us are stuck in this situation because it was a conventional MD that prescribed antibiotics for us. For those that still seek the guidance of an MD, I will share the following:
Jorge had once posted a link to this article about candida by Dr. Mark Hyman, MD. I’ve seen Dr. Hyman on public television talking about diabetes. Despite the fact that he was promoting his own book, I enjoyed his overall message. He takes a Holistic approach to things, and points out many inadequacies of conventional medicine. The second time I read his article about candida, I noticed the link to The Institute for Functional Medicine, where “Functional Medicine” seems to just mean holistic medicine. The web site has a tool to find local “practitioners of functional medicine”. I used it to find an MD near me, and today I called his office and asked if he treats people for candidiasis. They said that he does. So the point of this post is this: it would appear that there is an entire network of MDs (as well as other kinds of doctors) that will treat people for candida issues. I am in the USA; not sure if the network extends overseas.
From what I gather, naturopathic doctors are all trained to treat candida as well (I know that raster sees one). I am not trying to promote one type of doctor over another, I am simply pointing out that there appears to be more doctors out there that will actually treat people for this.
Yes, there are a lot of MD who treat candidiasis. Some of them, real authority in this field. I can send you to see a pioneer candida expert to New York, Texas, California, etc.
I am aware of several them still in service such as John P. Trowbridge, the author of the famous book “The Yeast Syndrome”, Leo Galland, Sydney Baker, etc.
