Am I in the right place?
Posted in the Candida & Candidosis Forum
Well, I can say, I am overwhelmed with this and the foods you cannot eat. I am 50 yrs old and the world’s pickiest eater. I don’t have a clue what most of this stuff is or where to purchase..or if I could even stand to eat it. And please don’t tell me I have to like it…or just get use to it. Heard that my whole life.
I don’t know how I am going to do this actually. I love chocolate…I am addicted to it. Gotta have it daily. Love my milk too.
With that said, I have gone to 5 different Drs, had tons of tests done. Food allergy testing, extensive blood work, x-rays of my chest. No one can find anything wrong. Brought up Candida albicans..showed them the tests I got from online (spit test and Dr Crooks test)..and one said..it was rare and doubt I had that..and the other told me all these symptoms could be anything..They were too generalized and that I probably should see a shrink. Needless to say..I AM DONE with Drs. They want me to get a CT scan of my head.
I took it upon myself to do a body detox and also with the metal detox as well for 6 weeks. The last Dr looked at me like I was nuts by doing that too. I wanted to slap her.
My symptoms-Shortness of breath/asthma, severe dizziness..especially after eating, severe fatigue, somewhat depressed/down, don’t want to socialize anymore, severe chemical sensitivity, headaches some severe. Had allergen tests done in 2007. I am allergic to some grasses and weeds. I am doing the sinus rinse and a nasal spray/nasonex and taking an antihistamine daily. I have facial pressure like allergy related between the eyes, sore throat, Brain fog/cant remember anything, irritable, Yeast infections every 2 months, chronic fatigue type symptoms/body ache like when having the flu, constipation, abdominal bloating, low-grade fever/low body temperature, tingling in arms/hands, acne, ringing in the ears (tinnitus)-diagnosed with Menieres disease back in 1995, restless leg syndrome, low sex drive, weight changes without changes in diet, heart palps, Sweet Cravings, bad breath/taste in mouth and light-headedness.
So I began my research of the top three symptoms. Fatigue, dizziness, and headaches.
Ran across a food allergy forum and someone in it said they had candida albicans. I thought..what is that? So I googled..i was shocked when I read it. The only other connection I could find was MCS..multiple chemical sensitivity..but it seems the candida symptoms are closer to whats going on.
Oh..my PH balance shows good-7.0 Anyway, I am not sure I am in the right place but it sure sounds like it. This is a self diagnosis.
Any comments for guidance, help with foods etc.?????
Again, i am overwhelmed with this diet thing...

Sounds like Candida to me. I'm sorry to hear that your doctors have been less than supportive; I'm afraid it's an experience that most of us with Candida have.
I was an extremely fussy eater as a child and it carried on into my adult life; I ate rubbish and no fruit or veg. When I was diagnosed with Candida (eventually!), I switched to the Anti-Candida diet which meant I was eating less and less. My Candida didn't go and I decided to visit a Nutritionist. They explained the benefits of eating veg and told me to eat 8 portions a day until I was better!
I couldn't stomach the taste of most veg, so I decided that I'd have to get creative and disguise it. It worked! Now I'm eating loads more varied foods, it just took a little imagination.
I am sorry to hear about your sickness. Your symptoms do sound like candida. Unfortunately, doctors are rarely supportive about candida due to lack of training and research about it. The best way to get rid of candida is to eliminate the root causes such mercury poisoning, high sugar diet, previous antibiotics use and hormonal misbalances. So, unfortunately, you will have to say No to chocolate:-( I recommend you to read The book Candida30: Permanently Heal Your Candida Infection in 30 Days or Less ( http://www.candida30.net/candida30-program/ ). The book is written by a woman like us who suffered from candida for years until she did her own research and was able to beat the infection. The book is a great guide for anyone who wants to live candida free life and teaches you step by step how to get rid of candida. I hope this information will help you and you will start enjoying your life again:-)
