Vertigo and the candida connection

Greeting's Folks!
I read many of the vertigo posts on here, and I have great compassion/empathy
for anyone who suffers mild, or severe bouts of VERTIGO.
After I was diagnosed with acute, systemic Candida Albicanis in 1990, I went
on the Candida Diet. I re-named this diet: "The Cave-Woman/Man Eating
Plan".
Due to my acute, last stage of Candida which had gone to my brain, I could
not drive and had to park my sweet black Jag for a few months.
I even moved out of damp, moldy Washington state because of the high mold
count in the air/earth there, and moved to a dry air state.
Anyway, what I know for myself regarding the vertigo attacks, besides the fact
that a dizzy spell is simply horrid, if I "cheat" and go off my Candida eating
plan, the SUPER VERTIGO takes over.
Once I re-cleanse my system and get back to a healthy way of eating, which includes lots of garlic and onions, the VERTIGO disappears.
As I sit here typing I am suffering with a full day of creepy VERTIGO because
I chose to enjoy, like alot of you folks, a nice bowl of yummy ice-scream
yesterday.
I too have had vertigo so bad you end up on the floor and put in the back of
an ambulance on the way to the local ER. One time last year when it happened
at a public place, the EMT said "Your blood pressure is 67 over 34! We have to
take you to the ER and get you help." Ugh. Anyway, the AMA doctor actually
knew what systemic Candida is after I had negated his diagnosis of inner ear
infection for the vertigo attack.
Well, folks....all I know for myself is Candida is very real, it can be treated
by oneself in a non-invasive way, and yes it does get better. But, some cheat
after a few years, like myself, and then it comes back with a vengeance.
One of Candida's numerous symptoms is this dang Vertigo.
Good Health to each of you! Now I shall go eat a nice boring bowl of
brown rice and sea weed. Oh yummy!

Re: Vertigo and the candida connection

Ok, well....This particular thread was started in order to share and receive input from other folks that may also have systemic Candida, and also have bouts of VERTIGO associated with the Candida.
Good Health wishes to each of you who read this.

Re: Vertigo and the candida connection

I am glad that you have been able to find symptom triggers. What is the Candida prevention diet like?

Hi Bindar! Just now got back online and read your post.
Well, there are many web sites that share similar Candida eating plans. Mainly, removing fast food's, white flour, sugar, and milk products from one's daily diet. Although, yoghurt (plain) is very beneficial.
Noticed that many of the plan's state to avoid any form of peanut's, and cashew's because of the MOLD in them. I found out it is true, because when I ate some nice, innocent looking peanut butter last week on a brown rice cracker, 2 hours later my vertigo came back with a vengeance.
Mainly the eating plan consists of meat, chicken, vegetable's, garlic, brown rice, oats and soy milk. Oh, and yoghurt really helps. The garlic and other herbs kill the candida spores.
When I do not cheat my vertigo disappears as my liver seems to get cleansed also.
P.S. FYI....Not disputing other chronic forms of vertigo being only from systemic Candida. I know there are many other reason's for having vertigo.
Another way vertigo can rise it's ugly symptom is when one's "Pipe's" are not working in a regular way, and the gases building up give off toxin's too, that for some can make one extremely dizzy. Then when one is not constipated any longer, and eating a healthy diet, the vertigo can many times disappear nicely.

Re: Vertigo and the candida connection

I have a 28 year old son who has been basically bedridden for months. He has been diagnosed with candida from a naturopathic doc, but doesn't believe any of his symptoms that keep him down have anything to do with candida. He had sinus surgery hoping that would help him - as he did have swelling in his sinuses. He has ear pain, behind the eye pain, very light sensitive and wears sunglasses indoors, and very lightheaded. I read your post saying you were dizzy with candida. I would love to hear more and know more of your symptoms. Could you reply?

Re: Vertigo and the candida connection

How long before you noticed an improvement in your dizziness? Did you take any antifungals along with your diet change?
