Re: confused is this candida?
I used to have spells of feeling better. i don't anymore. I have not felt good since probably about June. The balance thing and the tingling is the worst now. I go through spells of feeling like i can't get out of bed. I get out but i have to push myself. I am better with that at the moment. As far as antifungals. i have taken ones that natural drs have given me. They were pharmaceutical grade supplements that i don't know anymore what they specifically were called but you can't buy those specific ones in a store. There are so many different supplements that help to kill candida. you have to go to a good health food store and ask a knowledgeable worker for help. A trained person.You also have to eat no carbs at all for a very long time. I find it impossible. I know that i have candida because i have chronic gas. It is really bad all the time. I know that my candida is not as flared, when the gas is not as bad. I eat healthy, and I am low carb but I am not no carb. I know i have to go on the no carb diet but i don't want to. There is no life on that diet. I like to have a few drinks on the weekend and I also love going out to a good restaurant once a week or even once every two weeks and i like eating the bread at the restaurants. Also i have a sweet tooth. A piece of dark chocolate is good but not on a candida diet. I also like to munch on something other then veggies. I eat popcorn. That is also no good. I also like to eat fruit which is not good for candida. Like I said, there is no life on this diet. But then again, there is no life feeling sick either. But i don't think our whole problem is candida, so if we got rid of that would be still feel sick? Probably. Well anyway, i am still in bed at 9:30 am. I have to drag my butt out and make my coffee (which is also not allowed on the diet) and start my day. Tomorrow is valentines day and we are going out for dinner tonight instead. I will be having all the wrong foods tonight and will probably feel sicker tomorrow. Do you celebrate Valentines Day in the UK or is that an american holiday? Take are and talk to you laler. LaLa
