Candida

My reply to a question on how I dealt with my Candida:

The doctor put on a course of two herbal medicines from Germany - I can't remember the names - too weird. That was for immediate "shock treatment" for 7-10 days.
Also had to go on very strict diet - it was horrible. Had to give up coffee, sugar, bread, normal pasta. For 6 weeks. Almost everyday of the 6 weeks I ate 1 thing in small quantity that I should not.

I feel better and just did not go back to him. Did go for allergy tests and discovered that i have a slight allergy to nuts and most grass and inhalants.

Now I drink 1-2 cups of coffee a week, still have very little sugar, otherwise I am eating normally. My dietitian said that the elimination diets don't really work but you have cut out sugar and refined carbs. According to what I have read - I would probably be in danger of having full blown symtoms again in 2 years time if I don't keep it under control. But how to keep it under control seems to be a great topic of debate. The advice I have decided to take is to find my own path of healing.

Sjoe - that is a long answer (smile)

Unfortunately Candida is one of those things that can only be effectively controlled, and even healed, by diet. And funnily enough, the things that cause candida, are also the things that make us fat, give us diabetes, heart disease, cancer, etc.

Good luck!

Candida can be a very irritating yeast infection. A person who has developed this infection suffers from itchiness and burning. If you are infected by Candida, you will require the proper treatment. Otherwise this infection can not be controlled and may spread to other parts of the body. Candida usually develops in the moist and damp parts of your body like vagina and around the douches. It is a fungal infection and depending on your conditions it may take a few months for it to fully clear up. One of the best ways of preventing Candida is by adopting a healthy lifestyle. However, it is a chronic infection that can reemerge frequently. Therefore, we have provided some advices that may prove helpful in preventing its onset.

If you have suffered from Candida before, it may reappear, as it is a chronic infection. We suggest that you avoid wearing very tight nylon clothes or any other clothes that accumulate moisture. Tight fittings and nylon underpants create damp and warm environment that breeds Candida. Do not sit in your swimming suit for along time. Dry your body completely after taking a bath because moisture on your body can be harmful if you have developed Candida before.

If you are suffering from Candida, you should be more careful about your personal hygiene. Keep your body clean and dry. Do not use soaps that cause irritation. Try avoiding harsh shampoos. They may cause burning or pain in the effected body parts. It is recommended that you should not take unnecessary doses of antibiotics because they can affect the immune system of body and may create suitable environment for Candida infection.
