systemic candida infection

This is a discovery for me. I absolutely feel this is a part of my Fibro. If not the cause a very overlooked symptom. I've been on the no sugar/gluten/carb/ I can't eat chocolate diet for only 2 days and it's amazing how crappy I feel! I feel exactly like it said I would and I swear that my urine smells like sourdough bread!! If anyone wants to take the journey with me or has any input let me know!

Re: systemic candida infection

I'm on the journey with you...........I agree - I really do think it's the key - I've not had any chocolate for 3 weeks - with just the occasional piece of bread, very limited coffee/dairy - ie 1 cappucino a week and it makes a huge difference. Whether it's candida or whether it's because we're so toxic it's the same to me. Are you drinking plenty of water - 2 to 3 litres a day and that really helps to flush you out! Also taking probiotics is fab as it gets good bacteria back in your gut.

Re: systemic candida infection

I agree with you! I was tested for candida and it was negative but I have always thought I could be hypoglycemic. I gave up simple sugars a few months ago and I feel so much better, even lost 10 lbs, however like you I didn't feel better right away. Hang in there!

Re: systemic candida infection

Probiotics, Fish oils and garlic. I'm going to get some grapefruit seed extract today. Thanks for the support. I'm such a sweets aholic so this is a life change. Day to day and trying not to be hard on myself if I don't do it perfectly every day.

Re: systemic candida infection

Me too - I could have if i let myself eat chocolate all day every day - I didn't but some days I ate LOTS - so like you this is a new journey.....if you check out alkaline foods on the internet that will help you - grapefruit is fab - I could only eat one in the past with sugar on now I can just eat it on its own - fantastic!!!

Re: systemic candida infection

Just got some info on candida - have most all of the symptoms and also had fibro a coupla years ago. Think candida could've played a part. The info I got was:
1.Stay off sweet stuff and caffeine, etc
2.Take some good probiotics
3.Take some natural detoxing stuff like milk thistle, artichoke.
I'm just psyching up to do this - such a sweet tooth but I'm sick of all the crappy feelings. Good to know others feel the same!!

Re: systemic candida infection

I'm in as well. I have not been diagnosed with fibromyalgia yet, but I have been sick for about 5 months now, and am in terrible pain. I also believe I have candida issues. I have major sugar cravings. I have been making and drinking kefir this past week - hoping to get some benefit from the probiotics and trying desperately to cut out sugar. Still love my coffee, though, so that will be another issue to work on...

Re: systemic candida infection

Candida overload is a common FMS complaint. I"m sure you are gonna feel a lot better when you get those bugs out of your system. Yeah to your smart doc!

Re: systemic candida infection

A nutritionist told me that yeast is cause of FMS. He said he would rather see someone smoke a cigarette then eat sugar..cause sugar is so harmful to you. i am trying to get off sugar..cause when i eat it I flare up!! Does anyone have any advice besides probiotics?

Re: systemic candida infection

Pammyann,
can i ask what sort of test you had for candida? Doctors in the UK refuse to acknowledge it and everytime i suggest it tp my GP she says there is no test. I know there are many places online offering blood/stool/saliva tests but i dont know of these are very reliable.
