Interesting post and interesting question.. "What were your symptoms and how were you able to tell it apart from Lyme?"
According to the article, posted by Dowa, symptoms of candida albicans and lyme are similar. While in the process of diagnosing my lyme, I had a report run on me by a homeopath doctor. The only results they found were candida albicans growth.
I can only conclude that I have lyme bacteria and candida overgrowth working hand in hand.
Anyone else feel this way? Or have insight on this subject?
