See, I have a hard time jumping on that train of thinking. I mean, are we really going to play the “big pharma” card every time it’s convenient when we can’t explain it any other way? This idea of it nothing being profitable to treat … that assumes it comes down to the pharmaceutical industry stifling everything. What about MD’s? They get paid just to see/diagnose you regardless if there’s a drug to treat it (which there is) and don’t rely on writing a prescription for some other pharmacy to sell you in order to line their personal pockets.
Doctors recognize candida infections. I myself has had pharyngeal candida twice and treated with nystatin, mycelex troches and fluconazole. Doctors are certainly making money off me. As are pharmacies.
Sorry, but this idea that the medical community underplays candida overgrowth in preference of larger “major diseases which makes them more $” is almost comical. And borderline conspiracy theory-think.
So you’re saying my sister, a doctor, won’t give me an accurate diagnosis because she’s holding out for more money? C’mon. I mean, that’s what you’re saying right? You’re not saying doctors are unaware of candida overgrowth, but rather that they ignore it intentionally. I doubt my own family would let me suffer here and with no diagnosis knowingly.
And since I’ve heard alot about the Candia5 test as a reliable measure … I’ve looked around that dated website. Surely an organization which is at the forefront of being able to positively identify this debilitating issue would have a bigger presence in med circles and a more professional appearance online.
