I have and will continue to cut back on workouts for now for sure. I’m too tired to do anything else anyway.
BTW I’m so glad this forum exists!! I was ready to shoot myself with all of this. SOOO good to read other’s stories and get feedback on mine. Why doesn’t the medical establishment embrace candida????????
I’m talking about regularly running for hours at a time, like training for a marathon or something. I can’t find a reference now, but it’s been reported in a few different places. Amount of exercise and lifespan would draw a U-curve on a graph. Like with most things, it’s about finding the right balance. In terms of muscle growth and running speed/performance, less usually means more anyway, e.g. this approach to running.
Unfortunately, medicine fails people with just about any chronic disease you could name, not just candida. If you have a car crash and need your arm reattached or develop a life-threatening infection, the hospital can probably help, but otherwise you’re often on your own.
If Able’s around he can give you some links to a slightly more focused approach to treating candida.
