This disbelief and condescension from allopathic doctors kept me from really dealing with my candida issues for almost 2 decades….don’t let them put you off!
My advice may sound harsh, but it is your health you must guard: find a new doctor. I found it wasn’t worth my energy or time trying to convince allopathic doctors. They are trained to dish out prescriptions. Some are open-minded, but many are not, and the mere mention of candida will show you clearly which of these camps they reside in.
Integrative doctors, naturopathic doctors, chiropractors and others will be far more receptive and will probably take the time to actually listen to your issues and so on….save your time and energy on a doctor who is actually willing to work with you on this.
ETA: Oh, and if you have a hard time finding an alternative doctor in your area, then using websites and forums like this will probably be what you will need to rely upon….
I would be very glad of my allopathic doctor and the hospital system if I had some horrible injury or something that needed some kind of physical intervention or surgery, but beyond that I take responsibility for my own health by seeking out advice that is holistic (looking at my entire body as an integrated system, not disparate parts that bear no relation to one another and need corresponding “experts”) and is not biased toward prescribing massive amounts of drugs (with their accompanying side effects).
