Ok, so here is my story..
I am 23 y/o male and i believe i had Candida infection for the past 5-6 years or so.. Starting from my teenage years i always had skin problems (acne, rashes, etc..) I went to the multiple doctors who all misled me. I would get an outbreaks on the tip of my penis and mouth corners (soars & wart looking single pimples)The issue would come and go and i was able to ignore it for some time due to lack of symptoms that would come and go. Also, doctors would contradict each other, telling me there is nothing to worry about and some opposite. I did all sorts of STD screening tests and it would always come back clean. Not gonna lie, i been living a very unhealthy lifestyle since i was a kid. (no exercise, etc..) I been smoking cigarettes regularly since i was 12. From the age of 15 to 21 i been experimenting with all sorts of different drugs (i dont anymore) and i been smoking weed for about 8 years. (i just quit that lazy habit few months ago) My immune system is already damaged so that could be another factor of my candida infection. Another cause for my candida was that i was getting sick a lot and had to take many antibiotics.(multiple ear infections, pneumonia, prostatitis – past 4 years i was made believe by my doctors that the rash i had on my genitals was the cause of bacterial prostatitis, which i had and for which I been taking a lot of different antibiotics. I finally cured my prostatitis recently.)Finally, this August i did multiple blood tests and the results showed Candida IgG in my system. In a way i was kind of relived because I finally determined what was wrong with me. Prior to that i thought i had either herpes, genital wards or something scary and permanent. I been at immunologist and i been doing medical injections to improve my immune system prior to Candida treatment. My dermatologist prescribed me with Diflucan (Fluconazole)to treat Candida. I started the treatment and I was prescribed to take 150mg tablet once per week for 10 weeks. I had few extra Diflucan pills and after week 2 not noticing any significant improvements i increase my dosage taking pill every other day for 3rd week and i am planning to switch to once per week once i see the symptoms go away. (i’m finally starting to see improvements. I have some redness rash on a tip of my penis and very itchy rash around my anus.)I figured that increasing dosage wont do any harm after searching this drug on internet and due to the length of my infection and my weight. (185 lb)I also been using oregano oil and tee tree oil to apply to the rash and oregano oil pills as a natural remedies. I just started improving my diet today and switched on steamed vegetables, rice and organic plain yogurt. I know i should be avoiding sugar and junk food. Also i forgot to mention, i am taking adderal (amphetamine pills)to help me study for my licensing exam. My financial situation is very bad right now and my only hope is to get licensed and get a good paying job so i can get out of debt. So i also have a lot of stress on me which i assume is not good in my fight with Candida. Anyways, i asked the pharmacist and he told me that it is ok for me to take Fluconazole & Adderal together; hopefully its correct. I am trying to switch to a healthy lifestyle doing more exercise, eating healthy, etc…
My main questions are: 1. What food is it ok for me to eat while im on this diet? Is rice or cooked eggs are ok? Please let me know if you know of something easy to make? 2. Is it ok for me to drink coffee? (at least a little bit) 3. I recently got a tiny pimple on the tip of my penis, pretty sure i had similar symptom long time ago but im not sure. I am worried that it can be a wart since i have one im treating om my foot. I been putting some 91% rubbing alcohol to dry it up. Do i need to worry about that or do you think its just a candida? Is there anything i can do to make it less noticeable? (its not that noticeable but when i see it i start stressing about it and worrying) 4. Is there any other natural remedies i should consider? or any medication? 5. I know it sounds dumb but when is the soonest i would be able to have an alcoholic beverage without jeopardizing my Candida treatment? ( I really hope i can have few drink this New years Eve)6. Is it safe for me to have sex with condom or without condom when my symptoms go away? 7. Any other good advice you may have?
I really appreciate your feedback and your help. Thanks in advance!October 21, 2012 at 7:20 pm #91070

Reply: We have a strict diet that the forum uses along with our protocol. If you’d like to have a copy of it, send a private message to me on the forum.
Is rice or cooked eggs are ok? Please let me know if you know of something easy to make?
Reply: Organic eggs should be eaten, but you should avoid all forms of rice as it is pure starch will turn into sugar and feed the Candida once it is in your body.
Is it ok for me to drink coffee? (at least a little bit)
Reply: No, you should avoid all types of caffeine and drink chicory coffee instead. Be sure that it’s 100% chicory with nothing added to it.
Don’t stop drinking coffee all at one time. You should wean yourself off of it by making it weaker every few days which will probably take several weeks to accomplish. You can start substituting chicory coffee in place of your regular coffee. Bad headaches are a symptom of caffeine withdrawal, so take it slowly.

Reply: Pimples that occur anywhere on the body during a Candida infestation are almost always due to the Candida itself. The only way to be certain that you stop the outbreaks is, unfortunately, to treat and cure the infestation.
Is there any other natural remedies i should consider? or any medication?
Reply: For a complete answer to this question you will need to read our protocol as it covers everything. The Protocol
I know it sounds dumb but when is the soonest i would be able to have an alcoholic beverage without jeopardizing my Candida treatment? ( I really hope i can have few drink this New years Eve)
Reply: You’ll be better off if you just stop thinking about alcohol, because it takes an awfully long time to rid the body completely of a Candida infestation. Chance are, every time you drink any amount of alcohol, you will set your treatment back substantially; I’ve seen this happen too many times to think otherwise.
Is it safe for me to have sex with condom or without condom when my symptoms go away?
Reply: Always use a condom during your infestation, that is if you care anything at all about your partner.
Any other good advice you may have?
Reply: Yes, read and study the protocol and ask me for the strict diet information.
