I think it is important to keep this in mind, just because something worked for you does not automatically mean it will work the same way for me. Every case is different and there is so much to consider. I appreciate reading the different inputs because I know that I will have to figure out for myself what needs to be done. Following the protocol left me a lot worse, the probiotis being the worst of my mistakes. That is not to say that the protocoll won’t work for someone else, just that it did not work for me. And so I must keep on searching for my own solutions. In this search the information on this forum has been very helpful (especially when there are conflicting viewpoints as they get me to consider things in new ways).
Exactly, this is the main point of my posts. Allow people to think, allow people to realize the problem and knowing why the current candida protocols are so ineffective.
I want to bring more points but giving you the reasons and all the support I can find. I want you educated. The information is there, in books, medical papers,etc. What I have done is to put the pieces together. I haven’t invented anything. Since I didn’t find a MD that could solve my problem, I decided to learn. Trust me, it hasn’t been easy since the spreaded information have confused me many times.
The unreal information has born from the lack of medical attention, desperation, business, etc. It has been so powerfully propagated that is really hard to change people’s mind. People still continue with GSE, Oregano Oil, etc for years. Yes, you can try them at first but you can not plan to be all your life in that vicious circle.
I was totally unhappy with it and decided to look for new avenues. I was digging and digging, incredibly, I have found a huge amount of real information that has been buried for years. It has been 4 years visiting libraries, reading, paying medical articles, etc. I was the only way. I was expecting my MDs solved it but I had to get it myself or allow my life to be ruined forever without find a way to recover.
The problem with this Sr is he hasn’t had to live a real candida case thank god. He doesn’t know what really a candida affected person suffers. He doesn’t have a story of taking antibiotics ( main cause of this syndrome ) neither can post pictures of what has came out of his intestines. He contradicts himself telling people he eats a normal diet when he has posted many times that he still follows the diet more or less. Recently, someone (positivo) posted a list of food he wants to live with ( very reasonable and a normal aspiration) , and got an answer from him telling he has no tried many of them yet. So, what is a normal diet ????
Those are the differences that keeps him entertained with Kefir and Coconut Oil and don’t allow him to realize there is a hope for those who don’t get better and aspire to live a normal life. No to be tied to a diet forever.
