Hi, I agree with previous entry. Besides the athletes foot and the alcohol cravings I’ve had everything on that list and THEN some! I was hospitalised for unexplained kidney pain, and even experienced excruciating joint pain. It’s a struggle when your closest people start telling you that you gotta start thinking positive and “it’s all in your head.” Don’t just read one article or visit one sight – there’s a WEALTH of info out there from all sorts of perspectives. it’s trial and error to find one that suits you.
If your wife is a life long depression sufferer, she may consider if Candida affects her too. After all, you probably eat pretty much the same thing, and genetic pre-disposition to depression can be severely aggravated by Candida’s depression symptoms. The search for answers, if done WITH your wife, may help to ease the stress which in and of itself causes candida to flourish.
As for your cold – I had recurrent upper respiratory tract infections, which eventually was diagnosed as asthma. It has eased tremendously in a short time with the candida eating programme I’ve devised for myself from sites such as this brilliant one! Your cold appears to be triggered by stress – physical strain AND emotional/psychological wear and tear with your wife being ill. But I’m no doctor, and the doctors are baffled anyway so all we candida sufferers have anyway are each other. Can’t hurt to do the candida cure!
