The thought crossed my mind several times when I was really sick. I guess because I am one of the unaccepting people I refused to give up. I convinced myself there was an answer I just had to find it. Before I know I was getting better by the day. But this was AFTER I found what worked for me after being disappointed many times. Doctors telling me nothing was wrong or drs that know much less than we do on this board about candida.
The key here is is to figure out what your body is telling you. IN my experience this takes some pondering, thinking, researching and convincing yourself you will get well, it is only a matter of time.
ssk what you mean by your body crashing after the diet? This could be die off. It does feel like that. Possibly if you described what you have tried and what your body reacts to someone in this board could shed some light.
It is normal to feel terrible while on the diet. Are you bowel cleansing...Extremely important. And when you go off the diet waht are you eating. Even if you cannot tolerate a candidida diet there are healthier ways to eat that you could gradually enact until you can handle it.
