I am a 21 year old male and I’ve had candida for what i believe to be 2 years now. I first noticed it when i would go out for a long night of drinking, I would feel extra terrible the next day and sometimes 2 days after. Eventually it got to the point where I would have this “hangover”, 24/7. It took my until march of this year to finally figure out what i had. I had been to various doctors and explained my symptoms to them and they all thought i was crazy or diagnosed me with depression or something that i know i didn’t have. I felt insane! I also had a history of going to raves and taking drugs such as ecstasy and cocaine in large amounts and also drinking heavily. So at first i thought, Oh shit! I screwed up my liver or something and its permanent. I didn’t know what else to do until my mom recommended me to a naturopath. She then diagnosed me with candida. She also set me up with a diet and these supplements -ground flax seed, molybdenum, therelac probiotic, gastrigest, glutamine, cod liver oil, and maybe one more thing, i can’t remember. But after a week or so i thought i was starting to feel beter. Then i was experiencing all the same symptoms just as bad. I had to quit my job at the fiberglass plant cause i could tell that was making things much worse. Anyways, bottom line here, I have had this candida for a while now and i feel maybe slightly better but its still there definitely. I was looking for some advice from a pro maybe. I have also tried drinking again to see if i still got that nasty hangover and yes it was still there. The thing i mostly notice form my candida is brainfog and i have bags under my eyes that won’t go away. Thanks for any help guys or for reading my story. I hope we can all get cured someday.June 19, 2012 at 6:46 pm #84968

I might think the biggest culprit was your job at the fiberglass plant. I have a terrible reaction to fiberglass and I think it makes candida worse. I struggled with it for years, and it managed me rather than me managing it. I have done a lot of research on fiberglass and its affect on health. As a substance on its own, fungus and mold happily make it a home. It is a powerful irritant and is destructive to living tissue. I believe that it sets some people up for fungal or yeast infections. For me, it made mine worse. I live in a badly insulated home,with exposed batts of fiberglass insulation. I had chronic symptoms (tired, crappy digestion, mental fog) which were connected to candida by the Burston Clinic.
However, nothing I did made a difference. Diet, supplements, prescription anti-fungals had little effect. I discovered the connection by accident. After insulating a garage with no protection, I developed a terrible cough which lasted for weeks. An emergency room physician told me the insulation fibers were causing my cough. This made me fearful, and I removed or covered all exposed insulation in the house. My symptoms improved remarkably. Since you’ve left your job, hopefully this will improve things for you.
