If you google 'candida' and 'spine' you can read alot in medival journals about spinal candida infection and meningitis caused by candida. Try doing a spit test to gauge how infested you are. I have spine pain that gets worse when i fast or avoid Sugar (in the beginning at least, it alwaysgets worse before it gets better) - so i think the pain may be the candida in thr spine acting up to a lack of what they want. I've been using Iodine and diet to treat my candida- its amazing the results for me! Its cheap and potent. I started at 1 drop and worked up to a dropperfull -14mgs daily. Its important to ramp up slowly though to avoid nausea and detox sickness. Just an idea of something cost effective you may want to consider. I'm not healed 100% yet in the spine but other bodily symptoms are gone! (Dandruff,eczema,allergy,itchiness.fungal skin infection etc) my next step is a parasite cleanse andreas kalcker style.
