"But I know what you mean by non-believers I just went to a Dr who told me only AIDS and chemotherapy patients can have Candida. And that Candida is a scam started by "alternative" Doctors with no proof. Grrr...frustrating. "
Just his way of telling you that you should seek out another doctor. He did you a favor. Most Candida wouldn't be if not for the doctors prescribing Antibiotics to eliminate the symptoms while covering up the cause. This is not to say that they are all bad, just beware.
A doctor once told me 35 years ago that I needed to get my Colon cut out and a bag attached to my side to eliminate in. I did some research, changed my diet and the smptoms disapeared. I've always wondered why he didn't know of such a simple solution to my problem, Doctors aren't Gods like some people believe. Listen to them and then get a second and third opinion, then do some more research.
