My first hint to candida was recurring thrush both north and south around the same time I inexplicably developed severe GERD (acid reflux), and prilosec and localized antifungals did nothing to ease any symptoms.
Mine was seizures caused by mold poisoning and poor lifestyle. When I researched mold poisoning I found out about it. I then started to do acupuncture as suggested by a coworker and the acupuncturist kept on saying the word candida. I was so brain dead I didn’t really pick it up or know what they were talking about. Then I continued to research about mold poisoning and learned about it a second time. I then went to my naturopath who started to treat me after doing it on my own for 4 months. I have a story if you want to see it.
