I mean most doctors prescribe antibiotics to treat something like this (which makes it worse) without diagnosis, why would they do this? And what drugs are you expecting to get prescribed by a doctor? A doctor won’t prescribe supplements if thats what you are aiming for, they won’t prescribe probiotics typically, digestive enzymes, bio-film disruptors, chelation drugs, etc.
From my experience with other forum members on here, you basically have to be the doctor and feed them information about this syndrome in order to get treatment. Doctors are very hesitant to prescribe something that isn’t covered by insurance, its against industry standards.
You basically have two options once diagnosed also:
1)antifungal drugs (which may or may not work) (you’ve already done this also)
2)hypo-sensitization shots (prescribed by allergist and takes a lot of work)
I mean if you look at someone like Paul Allen, he got diagnosed with cancer and was able to fight it off in less than a year. Twice. He has access to medical care that the general public does not have access to.
The closest thing to diagnosis that you can find in the medical community is via an allergist because they will determine whether you body is fighting it or not.
We all have candida naturally and its one of the most studied organisms in the medical community, more studied than cancer. Its supposed to be a beneficial organism for most people and this is likely why they won’t address it as a disease. There are over 50,000 medical papers about candida, which is about one per day for the last 50 years. Its well studied and well documented.
