I have a similar reaction. I get a thrush increase with onions, eggs, spinach, and other foods. It drove me crazy for quite a while trying to figure it out. Later, I realized I have immune reactions to those same foods–especially the high sulfur ones. I have a feeling an immune response lessens the body’s ability to control the thrush. Conversely, if I take something that boosts my innate immune system (like pine cone extract) the thrush lessons. I’ve found that changes, both positive and negative, to my innate immune system effect my yeast levels much more, than say, antifungals or probiotics. This evidences, I think, the notion that what most people have isn’t a candida problem, but an immune problem.
Totally agree with you indeed candida infection does not exist in people with a strong immunodefense system. But i swear also to you that the body can increase his immunodeficence as well as it can recover from it and i can be a witness about that because it is since 2 years around that i don’t get a cold or influence, i swear i never had such similar things in last 2 years. Although the damn candida is still there.
People with upregulated Th2 activity or total immune suppression/weakness, which is pretty much universal with candidiasis, usually stop getting common colds and flu’s. Its another sign of the problem.
Thanks impossible to have pointed out those interesting notes about immuno-weakness but it’s not my case.
I recently took my blood tests and all lymphocites and leucocytes are in normal range.
I have instead high value of ferritine in blood which could be more referred to an inflamation rather than an infection. The body react to inflamation by increasing the ferritine level in liver as natural response to inflamation and the liver could be very stressed cause that. In fact my ALT/AST are increasing too. For my doctor everything is connected to candida…
Since im fighting with antifungals and candida is in remission phase my ferritine recently lowed too so i suppose that exist some connection with it.
