I would almost bet that Candida is causing your symptoms. I been researching this problem of ours for quite some time and have read that we can expect anywhere from 6 months to a year of strict dieting before our candida is under control. At that point I do believe that cheating would not be out of line. It’s when we get out of control that the candida will come back…even worse

This past April I was in the hospital for 6 days…not candida related. When I got out I felt great. No candida symptoms at all and I thought I was cured. So I went right back to my horrible diet trying to put my weight back on. McDonalds, pizza, taco bell, breakfast cereals loaded with sugar and so on.

About two months later all my symptoms were back 10 times worse. It is now December and I’m still fighting to get this back under control. You have to basically eliminate sugar as sugar acts just like rocket fuel for candida.

I’ve been taking several different anti-fungals with mixed results. I can’t really tell if they are working or not. What is causing me to question their effectiveness is I hav been taking them for about 3 weeks and not really feeling better. I felt great when I got out of the hospital after only 6 days. Now when I was in the hospital I did not eat for 6 days and lost 15 pounds but It is now appearing that will be the most effective treatment.

Good luck to you in your fight. Please keep me informed as to how you are progressing.
