UPDATE ON MY HEALTH! GOOD NEWS, AND I HOPE IT HELPS SOME OF YOU!! CANDIDA IS GREATLY RESPONSIBLE!! MY FRIENDS HERE, IF YOUR SICK AND CAN'T GET A DIAGNOSES, IT MAY BE AT LEAST PART OF YOUR PROBLEM!!!
Since I was last ill it has been more than 8 months. I was sick for about 8 days before that period of remission, then before that I wasn't ill for about 9 months, so I have only been sick about 8 days out of the past 17 months. This is a miracle. Before a friend convinced me to consider candida my life was a living hell. from 1993 to 2008 I often had symptoms that would last anywhere from 8-14 days, and at my worst period I was sick for more than 3 months straight back in the mid 90's. Symptoms were very severe. I had severe debilitating fatigue, deep mental fog, excessive feelings of weakness in my legs, feelings of something sucking the energy out of my chest, severe exhaustive feelings, tormenting hangover like headaches, anxiety, depression. My palms were often very dark blue with white spots on them. These were symptoms at their most severe. A flu with a 105 temperature would have been a picnic compared to this. usually 10-14 days then it would clear up slowly like an illness going away, then I would feel totally normal for up to 30 -40 days then it would begin again. I fought very hard, and had hundreds of tests. They had no clue. As time passed the bouts happened every two months or so. But I could never beat it. It wasn't until I experienced the ocular migraines and a friend recognized the symptoms on facebook, and he realized we had the same illness and he wrote me. He told me about candida and I went on some cleanses and harsh diet changes. Within a month I felt better than I had since I was a teenager. It lasted more than 9 months, but he warned me to watch my intake of sugars and carbs. I listened for awhile but got lazy and ate what I wanted. Within 3 months I got sick again. So I went on another cleanse and an even strickter diet for about 6 weeks. I haven't been sick since. I can eat bread, pasta, candy, and if I start feeling ever so out of balance I stop for a 10 day period and go back on the diet. I never get sick anymore and feel normal. Candida is very common and can kill you if it get's unusually severe. Mine got that way because a long time ago I experinced a severe infection of H-Pylori in my intestines, which made me more succeptable to candida. If you have any of these symptoms, try cleansing against candida and eat only red meat, fish, vegetables(no bread, pasta, white rice, or anything that concert to sugar, including fruit), and brown rice for about 4 to 6 weeks and see if you don't feel better. If you do then you likely have candida, if you don't then oh well, worth a try and it's good for you. By the way I have not had an ocular migraine since I cleansed against candida.
