I just want to interject by saying that I understand diet can help but I have a hard time with the candida diagnosis creating havoc in the body and causing all of my symptoms like head tingling, lightheaded feeling, off balance, head pressure, neck pain etc.
I'm doing the best I can with the diet and supplements for leaky gut but there is no change.
I'm seeing a dr that mostly treats with supplements and does think out of the box but my regulars drs dont get the whole candida thing which makes me confused
I had a candida blood test done with the new dr. The results were high on igg. It was 1.4. In range would be 0.8. How accurate is this test anyway. Does anybody know.
As with anybody, it will vary.
For me, I didn't see any real improvement with treating herbally for lyme specifically. However, I made huge improvements with my toughest symptoms at the time (headaches/migraines, menstrual migraines, supposedly unexplained kidney pain that made me sick, etc). All of those went away now (although I do have some dull ache in kidney occasionally but it doesn't make me bedridden sick anymore). For me, the change was very dramatic. I self-treated for the yeast.
Honestly, I don't think many people would associate the headaches with the yeast imbalance. And numerous doctors were CLUELESS about
my kidney pain which would make me bedridden sick. Again, they couldn't connect the dots. I finally started to put it together and wondered if it could be yeast related. I really didn't know, but I figured I'd try and see what happened. And surprisingly, it made a huge improvement on those symptoms.
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.
