I am not sure when my Candida started, when I was a child (about 5) I was seriously ill and my Mother said that the Dr’s literally pumped in antibiotics, I had measles and some nasty strain of flu together but part of the reason I was so ill is because I was so skinny and had nothing to fight with. After a lengthy time I gradually started to drink on my own and the first thing I asked for was chocolate! My recovery was then followed by a childhood plagued with ear infections, partial deafness and rapid weight gain, I would eat slices and slices of bread and sweets all day. Could I have had Candida 37 years?? During adulthood my weight fluctuated but mostly upwards, I drank pints of guinness and ate as much as a man easily, I suffered from depression, PMT so severe that my GP agreed to perform a hysterectomy, and 7 years ag I was diagnosed with hypothyriodism. After having unexplained symptoms, dizziness, heart palpitations, itchy dry eyes, numbness in my hands, itchy skin that would keep me awake all night, constantly having to take laxatives to go to the toilet, constantly having pains in my lower abdomen, developing food allergies, – and no response from my GP….. I decided to do some research. I am now in my fifth week of cutting out yeast, gluten, wheat, sugar, dairy, fruit, tea and coffee. I had a killer headache for two weeks solid afterwards but now I feel so much healthier, I know I have to stay on this regime for a long period to ensure it goes altogether (if it does) I also take Acidopholis+, probiotic multivitamins and Aloe vera. It’s great to see other peoples stories on here and know that you are not alone!
Good Luck everyone
