Hi Alex here,
I'm new to this forum but not new to candida, I've been dealing with this problem for a couple of years that I know of now and I've been to every doctor and specialist under the sun with still no relief. I've tried the "candida diet" for the last 3-4 months and as mostly everyone said they've found relief the first couple weeks then the same symptoms came back. I'm a 23 year old guy and I'm at my wit's end, I can't figure out what can help with this because I tried probiotics and it caused severe die-off so I'm scared to try anything a herbalist or naturopathic doctor recommended. I really could use some guidance on where to start out again because the food sensitivities are getting worse and my energy is at an all time low. if anyone has a recommendation of a plan to start at, to put me on the right path to good health I'd extremely be greatful of that! Looking forward to hearing from everyone.
Some suggestions based on what is helping me.

If you ever have the need to go to a doctor again, never go to anyone who is isn't a naturopathic doctor. If you do the odds are that you will be given medications from Big Pharma that have been proven to be detrimental to your health
There is a Dr. Gundry that I came across who talked about why probiotics didn't do much good taken alone for candida. He said you need to take them with fiber.
He has a product called Prebio Thrive that is a powder that is made up of 5 fiber products. The bad news is it was priced @$49 a bottle, but now he sells it for $79. Amazom sells it in the $90 dollar range. Since he suggested that you should give it at least 90 days to work, I bought a package deal 6 for $199 which now is $244. my cost per bottle was $33.
In addition I was using Custom Probiotic CP1 capsules that were 60 billion CFU's each. I changed that to a 6 strain powder that provides 280 billion cfu's per gram. [3 times the cost]
Not quite finished with the first bottle of fibre, but It's working a lot better than before.
As far as food sensitivities go, that could be Gluten from wheat products. I have that problem also.
Not all "Gluten free" products are good. The Heath Ranger posted an article that said if it isn't organic it could still be a problem.
As far as diet, always eat organic food, and remember that sugar in any form feeds the bad bacteria.
Yea i know some of the news wasn't what you wanted to hear, but I can't do anything about it.
Hope you get it worked out.
