I have a relative who has, in my opinion, severe Candida issues. I know because I went through some of the same symptoms they have. I've told them about what I thought it might be, and some of the natural ways they can make it totally disappear and fast, but I think they think I'm totally nuts. They just keep going to multiple doctors, who put them on more Antibiotics
and more prescription yeast controllers that are making the person worse and worse. They feel better on the yeast controllers, but doctors won't prescribe those for an extended amount of time, so as soon as they are off of them, the yeast goes wild and they get worse. They have a painful mouth, tongue, and sores on the gums. They have blurry vision, headaches, and a distended/bloated stomach. Skin problems from rashes to itchiness and burning. Insomnia, lack of energy, sore joints... and on and on...
They have seen specialists and dentists, and optometrists, ect... no one will tell the person that they need to change their diet! They just keep giving move prescription drugs! And the sad part is that the person just keeps doing it and is accepting that the doctor's are baffled, and can do no more. Changing your diet is so hard, but really, after about 3-4 days, you kind-of break some of your addictions, and really don't have the cravings. Believe me I LOVE bread/sweets/dairy, but I cut all that out for even two weeks when I got those symptoms, and they were gone in less then a week. I went back to eating normally, and I still don't have the best diet out there. I hate to be a hypocrite, but I know it really doesn't take long to feel the changes when you just try it. The person eats only dairy and breads, because their mouth hurts so much. I have tried to be subtle and kind of hint that those things make it thrive, but they said they are going to do it because that's all they can eat. The person has trouble taking pills, as do I, and refuses to eat or drink anything icky. I told the person about powdered oxygen cleanses, it's a bit gritty, but it won't make you gag like PB's can, and it kills the yeast in the process!
Sorry to vent like this, but I'm standing here with their total body cure that would give their life back, and they won't bite. Has anyone had this situation and found a way to convince the person to try it, just for a week? I hate seeing them suffer, but I suppose I can only help those willing to help themselves, and maybe Iíve done all I could, and said my peace.
