I think the theory of candida is really interesting, but I saw a 'red flag' when it promised to solve so many health problems.

I remember trying the candida diet several years ago, and I stuck to it pretty well. Having done that, I have to say I felt quite a bit better, but I think it was mostly from eliminating sugar and any junk food. While I don't buy totally into the candida overgrowth theory, I will say it points everyone towards better eating and just taking better care of our bodies. It sure doesn't hurt to eliminate sugar, and it's also helpful to know there are many hidden sugars in foods these days.

My doctor gets very irritated by theories such as this and claims it just promotes greed among scammers claiming to have cures. While that's often true, again, I do think there are still some "pros" for following such a diet. These days, though, I do allow a tiny amount of sugar in my diet daily, but I've really cut back from my more careless eating a few years ago.
ETA:  Just wondering if this topic should be in the special thread for diet and food discussions?  I just thought of that--too early in the morning, I guess!

Yeah I suppose to each its own.

I've taken prescription drugs that did nothing but make the situation worst. What I'm trying to do here is to enlighten others of other possible cause of their sickness.

I'm in no way trying to impose anything.

I'm only sharing what worked for me and hopefully help others cure their sickness instead of masking their pain by painkillers that's prescribed by these "doctors".

I wanted to share to go the natural way instead of synthetically covering their symptoms by these drugs that only "temporarily" relieve it instead of curing it.

And isn't these what's the website's about help & inform each other about " healing well"

But I do respect your opinion and thank you for the response.

I use to suffer from this problem many years ago. I got very sick with it. It spread through my whole body. They scoped my stomach first and found lots of yeast and then it spread through out me. When they brought the scope up it had been in my stomach then it contaminated my whole mouth spreading to other things. It was a huge mess. I rarely have the problem anymore.

Hmmm. Judgment is not "natural," and it usually doesn't help or inform.

I am glad you feel better, and have discovered a way through the condition.
