Sounds like you’ve got candida overgrowth.
A few things worth mentioning:
1)the diet is expensive in itself. It doubled my grocery bill more or less; if I went to trader joe’s, it could be a little cheaper. The problem is, my diet before was grossly unhealthy and I had a highly acidic diet. A healthy diet is the best way to heal the body from any ailments.
2)If you don’t have health insurance, the doctor could be costly. I recommend visiting a naturopathic doctor who specializes in treating candida and don’t waste your money on a western doctor. He/she may be able to work out a deal and even with just one appointment, it could really set you up for a good treatment plan. The supplements could up being more costly than the grocery bill.
3)you won’t necessarily have to take off work while doing the detox diet; you just will have a bunch of gas, low energy, etc. After 1-2 weeks the worst symptoms subside (typically).
4)Maybe consider taking out a loan or borrowing money from a family member/friend. Your health is very important and candida in extreme cases can be fatal.
5)To get a full scientific diagnosis of candida is very costly typically with blood tests, etc. Even then they most likely will not be able to diagnose it with certainty.
Hope this helps and good luck!
