Doctors almost never believe their patients have a Candida overgrowth. In fact, it’s rather rare to find one that does.
I have for the last 8-10 years been experiencing brain fog, tiredness, itchy skin etc. and came across this site after researching tons of sources.
Well, the way I see it, there has to be a cause for something like that to go on for that long. Since he thinks it’s not Candida, does your physicial have a clue as to what it might be?
But I do want to ask if there are any active males who suffer from this problem and continue normal lives with the cleanse and diets. My job requires intense physical activity and longs periods of intense mental concentration all in a days work and I wonder if doing the cleanse will inhibit me from work.
First you need to read the cleanse, the protocol, and the diet that the forum uses.
You don’t have to do the cleanse if your lifestyle doesn’t allow for it, lots of people don’t. You can just start right in on the diet itself.
Also if the spit test does not really show thread like patterns, but I do wake up in the morning always with dry mouth, phlegm and sore throats…is it possible that I do not have candida overgrowth.
You can’t trust the spit test one way or another. Info:
