Hello fellow fungus heads!
I am new to the board and have been reading it for a couple of months. I have been battling candida for the past 6 months and trying to figure out what the hell is going on! A pretty wild ride, but I have been feeling better since being on the diet, which has made it tolerable, but I am looking to get rid of this thing.
I have found that Lactoferrin may help inhibit the fungus when taken with antifungals.
Synergistic fungistatic effects of lactoferrin in combination with antifungal drugs against clinical Candida isolates
You should find the article
( it won't let me past links )
Here is the brand I ordered. I will let you know how this goes taken orally with some of the natural antifungals.
Life Extension Lactoferrin
A little about my condition:
6 months ago I fell under a huge spell of fatigue and started having stomach pains, since that day I haven't felt the same. It felt as if all of my digestive function was shutting down. From there I started experiencing insane chest pain and indigestion. My brain fog kept getting worse and I couldnt understand what was going on. I currently have chronic athletes foot, and I have had chronic prostatitis for the past 5 years. I am only 25. I went to a nutritionist who tested me positive for fungus and parasites
from genova labs stool test. This helped me confirm that I had a fungal issue. I am still seeing medical doctors to run various blood tests. From the medical world I have had a colonoscopy and endoscopy with no results. All my blood tests have come normal. I have had liver blood tests, and thyroid. I am just going down both roads to cover all of the bases.
Before this started happening I was drinking heavily, smoking cigs, not sleeping well. I have quit both of these things. I was also a vegetarian, which I think may have something to do with the problem. I feel like the problem started around 3 or 4 years ago with food allergies
that suddenly developed, constipation was next, then came some oral thrush along with depression, and finally it exploded when I was stressed and partying hard.
Currently taking oregano oil, renew life ultra flora critical care, LVGB complex, Metagenics Glutagenics, and HCL/Pepsin
