    By reading this site it seems that Candida is common. I went to the dr and had many tests done, the doctors told me I was normal. When in fact I had an overgrowth of yeast. Sooo Why don’t Physicians test for this illness? It is serious.

    There are a few major reasons doctors don’t test for candida:

    -They are under educated about todays health problems.
    -They only promote pharmaceutical medication as a means to address the problem; there isn’t many pharmaceutical drugs that fight candida and provide relief.
    -Doctors don’t heal, they only address the symptoms.
    -Doctors want you to be ill so that you can develop more severe health problems that require very expensive drugs or treatments (such as cancer).

    How do you heal multiple organs that are damaged with pharmaceutical drugs such as the liver, intestines, stomach, thyroid, adrenals, and more? There is no single drug that heals ANY of these organs

    -Candida is actually the cause of many of todays health problems such as hyper/hypoglycemia, krohns disease, cancer, seizures, blood pressure, arthritis, and more. Imagine what the world would be like if they could cure all of these ailments at once; through a protocol that reverses candida growth…the medical system would completely collapse!

    Here’s a good interview I listened to today called the history of medical tyranny:

    The medical industry was actually created by the rockefeller and carnegie families in the early 1900’s; they did good things throughout history, right?

    I am sorry to hear that you have candida. I believe the reason that candida is commonly not diagnosed by doctors is a lack of research and information about candida. All this leads to no training provided for doctors in order to recognize candida, lack of reliable lab tests to recognize it and etc.

    Extremely unlikely, especially for the younger (very well educated) doctors. It’s even unfair to say this as a generic statement toward all older doctors.

    1) Floggi, you generalise about doctors yourself so you have to be careful with your outspoken negativity whenever you post if you’re going to criticise peoples’ reasoning, you can be guilty of using the same type of reasoning. I remember you generalising about American doctors and doctors from Netherlands, that you were saying they were better than American ones was the general gist of your statement, well sorry, that’s a generalism too. So either you’re going to accept other people generalising in their arguments, or you’re going to stop generalising yourself. What’s it going to be?

    2) What do you mean by “educated” with regard to younger doctors? If you’re talking about formal education, I would be very surprised that universities teach anything about this illness that most of the people of this website suffer. If you’re not talking about formal education, what type of education are you talking about? Not experiential education surely, because it would be hard to argue that younger doctors are experientially more educated than older doctors. So obviously, you’re talking about some other education rather than these two… what education are you talking about?

    3) Maybe you should try and adopt a more supportive role in the forum, particularly towards newer people who are in distress and in need of help. The last thing they need is some cranky old woman rebutting every query they have.

    4) Raster, most of what you said I don’t agree with.

    David.

    This statement is incorrect because there are over 50,000 research papers by people in the medical industry who have researched candida since the 1950’s and 1960’s. This averages to roughly one research paper created per day since that time. Dr. Mcoomb’s has a lot of them in his media library and you have to be a medical professional to access the rest.

    Hello Floggi,

    All I gotta say to you is that you have been nothing but a troll on this forum and have not done anything that is constructive or helpful to anyone’s discussion or health problems. I did find your thought’s on chris’s enemas amusing though, but I don’t think its a best use of energy to go around trolling on these forums without having anything positive to say.

    Relating to this, I would like to hear your reasons to why candida is not diagnosed by the medical industry? I’d say that roughly 99% of the medical doctors here in the US have no training, experience, or knowledge relating to candida and there is very few specialists that you can visit at a doctors office to get treatment.

    One of my hobbies in my spare time and while working is listening and researching conspiracy stuff; so I am not going to waste any energy on this unless you are educated on the subject and are even close to the same level I am at.

    Have you listened to Dr. Mcoomb’s radio shows? In his radio shows he states that candida causes many illnesses that humans experience including arthritis, diabetes, dementia, hypo/hyperglycemia, and more. He has cured thousands of people with these problems, sometimes very quickly! I think atleast some of my statements have relevance or are half-truths at the minimum. It takes research to back up what I am saying and I don’t have time to bust out research papers on the subject and I doubt you will listen or read the stuff I post.

    Hi to all on this posting, I am a newbie and have not much factual input to this discussion.

    I feel a general agreement with Raster having read other useful posts, and I agree about the ‘troll’.

    You have to be supportive of each other or PM the person to avoid such public disagreements?

    As a newbie reading this, it could well have put me off the website but I am seeing it as a healthy debate of strong minds.

    Trolling needs to be eradicated off all sites to help those that are genuinely seeking help or to offer help.

    Rant over….having bad die off symptom! doh

    All I know is that when I saw a gastroenterologist she told me that diet doesn’t have to do with anything………….yes, and cigarettes have absolutely nothing to do with lung cancer.

    Find a functional doctor if you can afford it. Allopathic doctors are helpful for telling you what you don’t have. Remember, candida is present in all sorts of disorders ranging from diabetes to AIDS. I don’t mean to frighten anyone but I feel that it is unwise to self-diagnose.

    In the end I feel that doctors don’t treat digestive disorders. I apologize about attacking you personally floggi, but you don’t understand how doctors work in america.

    If you go in and say something is wrong here, they will give you an antibiotic and/or vaccine without even testing you for the problem (most of the time). Antibiotics and vaccines are destroying many peoples lives and there has been no or little independent medical testing in regards to their side effects.

    Many digestive disorders are due to low HCL levels but doctors do not prescribe HCL to treat the problems. Instead they prescribe medication or an antibiotic which has negative side effects, especially for those who have digestive disorders.

    I haven’t seen you for awhile on the forum, but in general you haven’t been constructive or helpful and thus my comments.

    Raster u are 100 % here ,Doctors dont have our best interest at heart in the ens money is what it all comes down to ,with everything from the pharmaceutic companies to the insurance companies, its disgusting doctors are very uneducated about toxins such as vaccines and fluoride. vaccines kill babies and cause autism and many other serious health issues ,i have a healthy baby and she has and never will receive a vaccine ,as a matter of fact they contain aborted fetal tissue formaldehyde oh the list is endless ! The medical industry dosent care about curing anything ,there is no money in a cure !There are many other reasons to keep us sick and stupid ,i seen u mentioned the Rockefeller families so u are educated on the NWO and the agenda of today’s GOV .U & me will get along quite well then .

    Floggi is a coincidence theorist. Plain and simple.

    I went to three different doctors. 2 said I was fine, and to stop reading things off the net. This is horrible advice. Anyone who tells you to stop educating yourself is compromised. The third Doctor I saw completely agreed with me, assessed me and confirmed it. And then prescribed anti fungals that didn’t do a darned thing. When it didn’t work, she said “Well, lets just try it again….”

    I gave up on the Doctors. And have relied on myself, and the research of the few Doctors around the world who actually care. Surprisingly, Japan, and South American Doctors lead the way. And provide a lot of insight and help.

    What is a common denominator, is anything that is tied to the success of big Pharma, will not promote or perpetuate truthful information about alternatives to their medicines. Not a conspiracy theory, just my well researched opinion.

    Also, if you are going to accuse people of being conspiracy theorist, at least know what a conspiracy is, and how it is defined.

    As a healthcare employee, and someone who has a Doctor for a father, it is scary what they claim to know. I grew up going to the pharmaceutical retreats and conventions at ski resorts that piled in Doctors from around the country. It is sick. These companies would co-opt doctors with false information, basically putting lipstick on a pig. And 99% of these Doctors would eat it up, along with all the booze and free gifts. I grew up watching it. My own step father grew a conscience one day and became ill with guilt over this stuff.

    It is real. Deal with it.

    calling someone a conspiracy theorist is attacking a critical thinker ,someone who does not pay attention to mainstream media hype and forms their own opinion ,i hate that term .

    If many tests are done, and all of these tests fail to detect candida… then how can you be sure you actually have candida?
     

    The Candida Antigen blood test is extremely accurate: not to say as with any test it can’t have it’s own false positive or false negative rates. In my case, my IgA came back at like 30.0 whereas a normal range would be 0.0 to <0.9 = That's a firm diagnostic but, I had to get the blood test information off the web and take it to him so all the dr. had to do was write it up on his lab test order forms. A year prior he told me there were no determinative tests other than Dr. Crooks' questionnaire....go figure.....

    Yes, educating yourself can pay off with western medicine > I believe in a ying yang theory where there’s a balance between alternative and western medicine which can help heal this condition. If we keep in mind “heal” really means in this case to keep the yeast in it’s normal yeast form within the GI track and keep it from turning fungal, such as remission if we eat a piece of cake or have a couple of beers with the boys on the weekend, etc….. I’m very careful using the word ‘cured’ around candida. It’s more like putting into ‘remission’ and keeping it there.

    Blessings.

    My ent and gi drs are the reason I have sibo and yeast overgrowth. Yes my diet didnt help but most drs don’t give a damn. They want their money. My fiancé just came back from a back specialist and said deal with the pain or get more cortisone shots. Those shots just help the symptom temporarily while actually destroying her even more. Naturalpaths seem like they care a little more especially being mostly natural. I agree with raster on most of his statements
