i'm just posting on here for some advice/feedback as i think i might have candida.
ok what leads me to think i might have it is that i have a lot of the symptoms that i've read, inc mood swings, hypoglycemia, foggy/confused thinking (big issue, this can affect me for 2 days) and sugar cravings, amongst others.
i realise this might not be candida and might be a food intolerance (have posted in Allergies about this) or a mental health problem (i've been depressed for some time, but it's on the whole better but i still get mood swings and depression and very tired)
I took a caprylic acid yesterday and all day today i've had a pretty bad headache, and felt v tired - i never get headaches usually, maybe i get one a year. i heard coconut oil kills candida too, i took a spoonful last week and i got a bad headache the day after.
i'm just wondering - does it sound like i may have candida, or maybe just a bad reaction to coconut oil or caprylic acid (which i understand is part of coconut oil).?
interestingly i took coconut oil about 18 months ago to try to help with with weight loss and i don't remember it ever making me feel bad at all.
thanks to anyone who reads and replies to this and shares their advice or experiences
