So for the past couple months Ive had regular abdominal pain and constipation. About a month ago I noticed that my hands and feet were going numb on a regular basis. I went to a primary care physical and tested positive for a B12 deficiency. I then went to a digestive specialist and had a scope (EGD) performed. I’m still waiting for the full results, but they did say that I had a Esophagitis which could be caused by Candida. Do all of these symptoms make sense together with candida being the root cause? Is there anything else it could be.
I’m 4 days into the diet, and am only noticing extreme fatigue as an outcome. I’ve only been eating quinoa, millet, amaranth, eggs, green vegetables, butter, and herbs. Additionally, I’ve been using yogurt, kefir, and probiotic supplements. I’ve also been making a tonic of water, apple cider vinegar, grapefruit seed extract, and sometimes cayenne. My plan is to stay on this diet for two weeks, is that enough time to see results? If I don’t see results by then should I alter my course or continue on?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

No one on the internet will be able to determine whether you have candida overgrowth or not. One way to figure out whether you have it is to try the diet, and if you experience “die off symptoms” or feel worse, then you likely have a flora imbalance.
We developed this treatment plan to get better if you want to try it out, the cleanse is completely optional:
We also have a strict forum foods list that doesn’t allow quinoa, amaranth, etc. These can feed candida and be prolonging your treatment.
It can take as long as 6-18+ months to fully recover from candida overgrowth and most people who have it are very ill from it and get very debilitated. After about 4 months, most people start to feel normal. I heard that a friend of mine yesterday is planning a 7 year timeline to get better, which is ridiculous.
