Like you, this is what my experience was. There is a major difference between western and eastern medicine. Western medicine involves promoting drugs that often don’t heal (unless its an antibiotic). Eastern medicine involves promoting diet, vitamins, nutrients, and things that will heal.
Here’s another way to look at it. All these doctor’s do is go to medical panels, meetings, and discussions promoted by the pharmaceutical industry. All they know what to do is to prescribe medicine. Most doctors want to prescribe antidepressents, antibiotics, vaccines, etc. This is all 90% of the doctor’s know. They don’t prescribe vitamins, they don’t promote digestion tips, and general dietary health. They also do not acknowledge that GMO foods, vaccines, heavy metal loads, etc. lead to any kind of detriment in health.
Here’s a simple fact for you: there has been about one candida study published on average for every day for the last 60+ years. There are over 50,000 studies published on candida in the medical industry. Doctor’s know about candida, but there is not one medication that heals anyone from the overgrowth. Nystatin is also very expensive and thus costs your insurance a ton of money. I believe its close to $1000 US without insurance for a one month’s supply.
What you need to do is go to a naturopathic, holistic, altruistic, or preventative medicine doctor who has read the studies on candida and knows how to treat it. I think maybe 1% of all western doctors know about it and how to treat it. I think maybe 50% of all naturopathic doctors know about it and how to treat it (supposedly).
Also, most doctors want to give a disorder within a body a name, such as a disease. Candida is not a disease (as of now) and thus they cannot classify the syndrome.
