I also had candida. I did the candida diet for about 8 months and finally had success. However, I think it would have went better if I had had the colonic earlier. When fecal matter sits in your stomach the candida, parasites and worms have a field day. If you are eating Sugar it can be any one or all of these. I had all 3. After going through several MD's my Naturo path actually looked at my blood and saw a few parasites. But, what he also found out was that my blood was clotted and recommended Omegacare Vanilla which is found at http://www.lifesource.net.
This worked wonders for me. He also recommended Body Balance which helps restore you ph to a good level. Apparantly these organisms can't survive in a high ph (above 7.0, I think). But even with this I had trouble keeping my ph above 7.5 until I had the colonics. (It was usually around 5.0 throughout the day. It would come up to a 6 or 6.5 for about an hour and then drop. Also, I bought a probiotic that had a 50 billion count, this helped,too. But, again before purchasing anything else. I would go to a naturopath and have them LOOK at your blood so that you can view it on a slide with the doctor. This is of course my opinion but it has helped immensly. The omegacare and body balance are expensive but I think they were worth it. I can give you my account # as referral number if you are interested BUT again have someone look at your blood because they can actually what you are dealing with.
