Sounds like you have esophageal candidasis. I hope I spelled it right. Google this term and you should be able to pull up some pretty ugly pictures of what the stuff actually looks like in your throat. Despite what people may tell you it is not anything major to worry about and so many people live everyday with this condition. It is annoying, very annoying and definately a parasite, so you want to eventually get rid of this problem but don't stress about it (stress makes it worse). And, obviously it means you have an imbalance in your body. I don't mean to say it is not an issue, just don't stress. You can have very minor candida symptoms elsewhere in your body and still have this problem because it is the last of the candida symptoms to clear up. I would try to assess your other symptoms and worry about those first. When other symptoms clear you will have better luck tackling this problem. And, when you cheat on the candida diet you will notice a flare up in your throat. It is the first symptom that you notice when you cheat. For better success in dealing with this problem try to get a doctor to prescribe 2-3 weeks of diflucan. This drug is very good at treating systemic candida. Also, try swallowing grapefruit seed extract mixed in water, since there will be direct contact to the fungus. Also, do the diet. Swallowing coconut oil is good too because the oil is thick and stays on the back of the throat killing some of fungus. However, it probably will not clear up until you clear up some of the candida in your body first.
