    A few years back I suffered from severe candidasis from being on antibiotics for 8 months. I followed the strict candida diet and it took two years but I finally eradicated it. I now am able to enjoy most foods in small amounts. I still need to stay caffeine, nuts, alcohol, juices, sodas or energy drinks.

    It took two years? I thought I read that one month was usually enough. Did you have a very severe case of candidasis? What where your symptoms?
    How did you finally know that you eradicated it. Did you do tests?

    The worst symptoms were the constant fatigue and pain(bloating cramps, gas) whenever I ate. This still happens to a smaller degree after any caffeine, alcohol, nuts, and sugar. I also had sinus problems, acne, thrush, and extremely painful periods.

    It took me a long time to completely change my diet. Now I now only drink water and have learned to focus mostly on eating veggies, eggs, fish, and organic chicken. I do fine if I have brown rice or brown rice pasta once or twice a week. One or 2 days a month I do a day of just raw vegetables to detox. It was extremely difficult to finally follow the diet strictly ( especially alcohol) but it has made a huge difference and feel well enough to do everything I want to do in life. Everything was a big struggle before.

    I take a probiotic, Candida Digest by Plantetary Herbals between meals, Essential Enzymes by Source Natural before meals, Sea Kelp, and Oil of Oregano one week on and one week off.
