Scar i think you are right , we went down the wrong track with this candida for years (3 years in my case) and got nowhere with the fad diets and everything.
The issue is with the adrenals mostly i believe , i noticed improvements when i started on the magnesium chloride + licorice root tea.Does the original poster sound like he's got strong adrenals and low stress levels? He's stressing out ever more when these fad diets and bogus treatments keep failing.
Candida is a con , let it go people.
After around 3 weeks of treatment with the mag cl , licorice tea , maca powder and a basic multivitamin (no herbs) i've had the following improvements
-stress levels way down , hardly any anxiety etc
-no longer difficulty getting deep enough breaths
- food allergies reactions decreased
-excess burping/gas gone
-better sex drive/erections (1st thing to improve)
the brain fog is still there 24/7 but i think it will go after another 4-6 weeks of treatment.the fog is caused by excess stress having an impact on the livers ability to remove toxins.
finally why is this cross posted in AIDS support forum.Do you have AIDS?
