I’m fairly new to the world of Candida, and its treatment. For 8 months, I’ve been experiencing very low stomach acid, extreme weight loss, the usual stomach complaints, brainfog, thrush on my tongue, generalized tiredness, dry eyes, etc.,that go with Candida. Recently, a stool test result reviewed I have medium to high level Candida. I found this hard to believe, because I assumed that Candida was less likely in men. But I have had a history which may have predisposed me to yeast – a period of alcohol abuse and periodic steroid use when I was younger, living with M.E. for 5 years, and a lot of stress at work. My immune system has been very poor for some years, and I suspect that I was treading water due to the Candida. I’ve now begun to do the cleanse, which is leaving me feeling rather dreadful and isolated, so it’s a great comfort that there are like-minded and motivated on the forum to talk to. I’m determined to beat the yeast, so that I can resume some modicum of a ‘normal’ existence!
