Going on a strict candida diet was the beginning of relief for me. I now stick to a less strict version now. That and liver cleansing - herbs that help the liver detoxify - have helped me immensely.
Food allergies or sensitivities seem to factor in for me too. Hardly ever eat anything with sugar, dairy, wheat myself and it makes a world of difference.
Any kind of trauma - accident, prolonged stress, physical overexertion etc. can weaken the body and certain organs. From talking to the people I have, it seems some people bounce back, but others don't do so too well, and fibro. springs up. Chinese medicine will address some of this by detoxification of these organs and then strengthening them with herbs.
Many people do recover, at least to a great extent, by addressing fibro. issues naturally. I've heard a few success stories myself.
Candida is usually caused by an underlying root cause. If you treat it and after a few months you stop the diet etc. and it comes back, my personal opinion is there is probably an underlying cause - coudl be many thigns: hormone imbalance, liver congestion, underfucntioning thyroid etc. At leat that is what I've been told. And it made sense to me. :0)
Take care everyone, manyembers
