Anybody find out they have and overgrowth of Candida? 2013 was fully a year of trial and error for me. After all the testing in regards to gluten(Celiac,sensitivity, or intolerance?)...I finally go back to what I already knew, but didn't think it was the root problem. I know now that it is, and always has been since I was a child. I'll keep this short, and not go into the length of how and why I developed Candida overgrowth, however I had my AHA moment last month. I finally got to buy some gluten-free beer and gluten-free apple cider. Well, I broke out in a rash the next day-totally on fire! It's the sugar and yeast!!!! I don't know why it took me so long to realize this...I was told by my doctor that I my body can't really tolerate sugar, and of course to stay away from gluten, soy, and dairy. I know I needed to as, all my symptoms clear up when I do. However, on a emotional-social standpoint....I was so irritated when people would ask, well are you Celiac? And when I would say I don't know, I never had the test, blah blah blah. They wouldn't take me serious. Like I'm making this all up or something. So I tortured myself, and went back on gluten to do the endoscopy/colonoscopy. They said I looked nice and normal in there. So, since then I've been on and off of eating good-kinda in limbo trying to figure out what I need to do for myself. And then the gluten-free beer incident happened, had my AHA moment, and am now working on getting back on track.
Sorry for the novel. Anybody else suffering from Candida? What has helped you? I do take a 7 day probiotic supplement every 2-3 months, and I know the protocols that I have to follow as far as diet goes. I'm just having a hard time dealing with this on a emotional level....withdrawals aren't fun. Sugar is ADDICTING!!!
Thanks for any input!
