If you look back through the archives you will see numerous people who recovered completely. And probably dozens and dozens that left and later got better, but didn't post anything.
in my experience, the candida diet is only a stop gap, symptom control mechanism, it is not a cure. candida itself should not be thought of as a separate disease, but rather as a symptom of other deeper condidtions. could be lots of things, heavy metals, clogged liver, thyroid etc. best thing you can do is cleanse, eat very healthy, exercise, supplement with quality supplements (have you seen the Iodine forum?), and see an experienced doctor of classical homeopathy for "miasmic" treatment. For me, clearing candida turned out to be the relatively easy part of my recovery, clearing miasms and food allergies has been tougher, though I think I'm finally getting there.
