I think a lot of your research is well founded and that I've come to the same conclusion about candida not being the problem it is made out to be. Ultimately it is a yeast we need to live and is kept in check by the vast majority of people, only overgrowning when not challenged by beneficial bacteria.
The point is why is it overgrowing and what can you do? Is it actually the problem at all? A comprehensive GI test will show you exactly what is going on and a good naturopath, but there are people here that just don't do it. They think they are going to cure their EC from treating it a certain way as I did for so many years.
