i went to a medical acupuncturist for my diagnosis after seeing six other doctors who said that i did not have candida. find a doctor who will use a testing kit from "great smokies laboratories"......these are the best tests out there for candida....they actually test right from your stools and the will tell you if what you are passing is candida....and how to best treat it with western medicines.
what you can do now is order the book "the body ecology diet"....read it and start the diet.....it is making all the difference for me.....and it makes so much sense to heal the body with food. i am also on primal defense and plan to start threelac soon. still, i really feel that no matter what you have, doing the body ecology diet for at least three months will get you on the road to health.
i so empathize with your position and wish you so much love and speedy healing.
