At last I am begining to overcome candida with the diet and the elimination of foods to which I have an intolerance. After 6 weeks on the diet I have started Oregano complex caps.
I have followed the recommendations of Erica White from [either of] her books 'Beat Fatigue' and 'Beat Candida Cookbook' which I bought from Amazon on the recommendation of a friend, who had also been long term ill with CFS, and has now recovered.
In the Uk, allergy testing was done by York Labs [York University]from a pin prick blood sample.I feel that I would not have felt the beginings of improvement without avoiding the many foods to which I have an intolerance,and although the full test is expensive [£205.]They will do a basic test very cheaply to see if any food allergens show in the sample, but not what they are.One can then proceed with more tests to define the culprits.
A point I would make is that I have tried for many years to eliminate candida but did not realize that no mater what anti-fungals you take, without the complete elimination of all fruit and fruit juices you will not get well.Deotima.
