I have been suffering from candida and I am 21 years old. I recently bought candida diet books and am trying to eat a better diet, very little sugars, lots of veggies and so on. I also bought Goldenseal, Oregano Capsules, Digestive Enzymes, Zinc, and Threelac. I truly want to do everything I can with this candida before I get out of college and start a full time career. I think I would have a hard time with a career with so much bloating and gas and brain fog and confusion, I have seen my test grades suffer because of the brain fog. My questions are, is it normal that when you start the candida diet and some of these supplements you can actually feel worse for a while? I feel worse this week than I have in a long while. Also, do you all have problems with the diet and being hungry all the time? I find myself hungry and depressed that I can't eat anything that I like. This is rough on me. Also, has any tried peppermint capsules and have you had success? The biggest problem I have is gas and bloating stomach, what is the best thing I can take to help that? Thanks in advance for your help. This forum means a lot to me.
