How I discovered what has been killing me
If you know what is attacking you, then you can begin to fight back.

First thing I decided to do was to give myself an education. I noticed that my stomach was progressively bloating more and more. I remember my mother telling me when I was very young that the doctor gave me medicine to help my bowels move. And the local iridologist told me that I have trouble in my colon. With this much information I got a CDSA (Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis) done. The test showed I had a microscopic parasite called Blastocystis hominis and a very high count of Candida.
I also made an appointment with a state certified Naturopathic Doctor (N.D.) to get a blood anyalsis done. There was undigested tissue and yeast in my blood. Unfortunately I moved out of state shortly after my appointment with the N.D., however at least now I finally knew what was wrong with me.
Let me say this to anyone that is listening. If you aren't getting any satisfaction from a Medical Doctor (M.D.), then try a Naturopathic Doctor (N.D.) instead. You need to make sure the Naturopathic Doctor has proper training, because only twelve states and four provinces license the practice of naturopathic medicine: Alaska, Arizona, British Columbia, Connecticut, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Manitoba, Montana, New Hampshire, Ontario, Oregon, Saskatchewan, Utah, Vermont, and Washington. Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands also have licensing laws for naturopathic doctors. In all of the other states anyone can legally call themselves a N.D., even without any training. So you need to be careful. If you live in a state that does not license N.D., then make sure the doctor has attended one of these accredited colleges.

I also bought several books which I feel are excellent reading for the Candida suffer:
Complete Candida Yeast Guidebook, by Jeanne Marie Martin and Zoltan P Rona. This is the only book I know of that connected my folliculitis, thyroid imbalance, and vitiligo with Candida.
Candida Albicans, by Leon Cahitow, N.D
Candida Albicans, by Louise Tenney, M.H.
I was Poisoned by my body..., by Gloria Bilbere, N.D.
Rational Fasting, by Professor Arnold Ehret Fasting is nature's way of healing. I plan on incorporating fasting in my plan for recovery.
Candida Albicans: The Quiet Epidemic, by Stanley Weinberger C.M.T. This book actually details a 60 day Candida Overgrowth Elimination Program which I plan on using.
Even though I am still sick as can be, it feels good to at least now know what is wrong with me. It gives me hope, and that is something I desperately need.
