I am new to this as well. I agree with Deb. It definitely sounds like you have Candida. I can relate to all your symptoms. I have been suffering with hives for almost 3 years now and I’ve been to different doctors, a dermatologist, a rheumatologist, and an allergist and none of them could help me. I’ve been on several different medications including prednisone which only made my symptoms worse. I then found this site and realized that I have Candida as well. I’m currently 3 days into stage 1 of the Candida diet. I haven’t done any cleansing yet but I intend to. So far I’ve noticed slight improvements but I’m hoping to see some major improvements after a couple weeks. It’s a hard diet to stick to but the recipes definitely a lot. I wish you luck on your journey to better health!
