Hi all...
 
Is there anybody who's experiencing heartburn due to candidiasis/candida fungi? and if you do have, what did you do with it?
 
Thanks and regards

Ill be the 1st one to answer you :)
 
GERD/LPR probably have different causes.
 
For some ppl is hereditary, some hiatal hernia, others bad eating habits, others obesity, some is the use of antibiotics, too much liquor etc...others with a weak valve (which had to be caused by something many of us believe.
 
With that said, it is complex to find out what is the root cause of each persons GERD. So it may be possible that candida can cause GERD.
 
Candida can push everything back up from the intestines but some believe this is not the case. I think is a plausible cause.
 
It is sad to go to dr today because dr. are not even trained to treat root causes anymore, they are taught to CONTROL the symptoms.
Today, you go to the dr. and you tell them your symptoms and they tell you take this the rest of your life.  This is my take on it, others may not be with on this, but I am talking based on anecdotes. To many ppl they don't take anecdotes seriously but your free to decided yourself.
 
Anyway, if you suspect you have candida you can go on a candida diet. Avoid all sugar, simple carbs like white rice, bread, potatoes and increase your veggie take. Look up the candida diet if you want to that route.
 
Eat anti-bacterial and antifungal foods like garlic.
 
You can always try supplements but you have to do some research.
So, it is possible candida can cause your GERD and there are also test with convetional Mds to test for candida and there also special labs that test for this.

Hi Nickels!
 
thank you so much, let me tell you my story, 4 months ago I had heartburn ( I didn't know it was heartburn) i just told my doctor i had chest pain, and they did and EKG for my heart, it was normal, and had blood test and there are some paratyphi + in my blood, but I didn't have any fever, but the gave me antibiotics (2 weeks ago I also had another antibiotics due to sore throat and dry coughing, which i think could be because of the GERD), but in 3 days the pain didn't go so i returned and the doctor confine me for 3 days, had more antibiotics and some antacid (liquid one...) but after I was realesed from the Hospital, the heartburn stays, I went to another doctor (this one is a Gastro dude) and gave me PPI, Mucosta and some anti depresant, I was ok for a week, but the heartburn didn't really go away, and the other problem is I started to have burning sensation on my hands, thigh, head/migrain at the back of the head, bladder (especially during urination) AND more weight loss, had a blood test for tumor marker, thyroid, autoimune, diabetic...nothing
 
and right now....I JUST CAN'T STAND SWEETS (CAKES, DONUTS, DATES, you name it)
 
So what do you think? my doctor (s) never mentioned about Candidiasis, but my officemate told me he has a relative who lost 30 kg because of fungus in the body that causes malabsorbtion...
 
should i just go the lab instead for (IGG, IGA, IGM)?
 
thank you so much

Hi,
 
Look, I am no dr. at all, I can tell you what I have done.
 
There is a test you can ask your MD for, is a Comprehensive Metabolic Panel and you can ask for a "Candida Antibody, ID"
 
If you do so, be aware that these test are not 100%, from what I've read, they say they are %70 reliable.
 
But if your GERD began with anti-biotics you could have messed with your intestinal flora. Meaning your good bacteria may be out of sync. You can look into probiotics, see if it helps.
 
I've tested for Candida with an MD and with special labs that, are trained in parasites, fungus, bacteria,and viruses. Like I said in the previous post, it can be a myriad of causes. From what I learned, taking too many anti-biotics is not good. There are quite a few ppl who's GERD began after taking anti-biotics, maybe they can share something with you.
 
You can also test for h pylori with your MD, but try to get a Breath test or stool test unless you never tested for it, then you can do the blood test.
 
Write down the test and see if your MD can work with you. Like I said, the things I am telling you, are from what I have done or experienced.
 
Look into candida-diet if YOU feel is candida but also know that your MD will probably rule this out immediately or will not be interested in testing for it. It happened to me, I had to convince my MD, to test for it. Then I realized, I could test for it more accurately at a special lab. Anyway, keep me posted.

Hi Nickles,

My Doctor is hesitant for a blood test (this is another doctor by the way), but he insisted on another endoscopy, i had it 4 months ago and there is no sign of candida, but I haven't had the colonoscopy, do you think its necessary? the labs here (in indonesia) dont have the candida package, what they have is the IGG IGA IGM (antibody) test, but again my New doctor doesn't think it's necessary

thank you so much
