Well its called candida related complex because its a problem that affects multiple organs and your health in multiple different ways. There’s digestive disturbances, histamine problems caused by inflammation of the gut (allergies), thyroid problems (if this organ was strong you wouldn’t get ill), liver health issues (die-off and mood), vitamin deficiencies, malabsorption problems, etc. Its expensive and hard to treat all of this at once and I think most doctors don’t want to deal with it.
Looking at your posts, it sounds like a doctor diagnosed you. I just don’t know what else you are aiming for, there isn’t a disease named after this other than candida related complex. The candia5 test is a good test to look into because as dvjorge mentioned, this mentions whether your body has an elevated response to fight candida (allergic to it).
An allergist can then take this information and give you the candida hypo-sensitization shots that basically instruct your body to fight candida. This is basically the only other medically related way to get better from my knowledge.
There’s a ton of stuff the science and doctors don’t look at and can’t diagnose such as general toxicity levels, mercury/heavy metal levels, thyroid conditions, co-infections (viruses, microbes, etc).
A lot of science is suppressed too and I think thats what is going on here with candida. They don’t want everyone to know about certain information (such as the existence of cell wall deficient microbes). With science and history, there’s public information and then there’s secret information.
