After no luck with doctors, I came across this website and thought it was worth a shot. to my surprise when I went on the detox I had major die off and my symptoms started to improve rapidly I was hopeful for the first time in a year. However as soon as I went on to phase 2 of the diet my symptoms returned but I did see that sometimes symptoms can comeback as part of the die off however nearly 3 months later the symptoms still haven’t improved like in the first week. I thought that I would go back to the detox and start fresh which I did but nothing happened no die off no improvement nothing unlike the first time.
Can anyone help I haven’t left the house in a year because of these horrible symptoms I’m only 19 and really would like some advice my symptoms today are worse. I only ate the foods from the yes list so I’m not sure why my symptoms came back worse 🙁
I’ve been taking anti fungals and probiotics and other supplements the books suggest any adviceMay 16, 2018 at 9:52 am #175801

“After no luck with doctors, …”
Even though quacks are the lowest form of life, I have heard of people with candida problems who have actually benefited from seeing them. Find a doctor who has experience treating it. Trying to cure oneself involves as much blind luck as it does willpower. And the illness diminishes our intelligence, making it that much harder — if not impossible — to figure things out on our own. I suggest you do extensive internet research about doctors in your region, and then call their office and ask questions to see if they sound like they truly understand candida. Even if the doctor was a three-hours drive from you, it’d be worth it. If you follow the doctor’s protocol and don’t notice any improvement by four weeks, drop him like a hot potato and find another. This medical condition is only going to make life more painful the longer you have it.May 16, 2018 at 11:13 am #175802

Depending on where in the world Alice is being able to find a doctor can be as easy as you say, ringing around a few, or near impossible. But yes it’s the first thing you should try to do, Alice. I say this as I’m practically trying to treat this alone, I’ve seen plenty of health care practitioners, nurses and doctors and the most helpful one told me to google the candida diet and follow it. The rest are next to useless.
I’m in the UK and whilst the NHS is brilliant for emergencies it is pretty crap with ‘low grade’ stuff like occasional joint paint, lethargy, rashes etc and even blatant candida.
If the symptoms restarted when you when to phase 2 then I think maybe you didn’t get rid of all the candida in your system and need to redo the cleanse and phase 1, this time sticking to phase one for longer. Good luck
