I hear ya Codyssey, I have had candida I believe since I was 12 years old. I have metal fillings, have had antibiotics since I was young, and ate a lot of sugar – I’m sure they all contributed. It took me until this past year (I’m 29 now) to find this illness, and my symptoms (which range from skin problems like jock itch and general itchiness to foggy head and bruxism or grinding teeth) have never been so under control since I started the diet. I saw doctors about this for over 10 years and they would either throw prescriptions at me or tell me there was nothing wrong. The last doctor I saw told me I was a hypochondriac when I told him I had been researching on my own and wanted to know about Candida. Why are they so quick to turn so many people away when the find relief with this diet / natural healing? Perhaps they are just ignorant, I really hope there’s no conspiracy behind this, I guess there’s just not enough studies being done on Candida, which I am 100% behind if I hear of anyone who needs help getting them done. In the end, I think the summary is that the most common symptom of Candida is one that Western scientific doctor’s cannot see.
