In the last couple of months, my yeast infection symptoms have been a lot better. However, for the last few days I seem to be having a problem again. I am on a new homeopathic “detox kit” from my naturopath. The problem is that it contains 25% ETHYL ALCOHOL. That seems like a lot. My naturopath is disinterested in my diet and wants to sell these products. It does get good reviews, but I don’t want to screw up my diet.
Do you think it’s OK?
Of course it’s not ok.
Alcohol is going to make your infestation worse, in fact, it sounds like it already has. You’re right about the doctor wanting to make more money, and he’s obviously more interested in that than in making you well. In addition, homeopathic meds seldom work with a Candida infestation because they work so slowly, therefore the Candida are multiplying faster than the medicine can work. I guess that’s one way the doc can keep you coming back to him indefinitely.
