Sure I have candida, but doctors will not help


7 months ago I took a drug for acne called Accutane. Several weeks into my treatment I began to suffer from horrible side effects. During the treatment, my diet was extremely poor due to moving out on my own.

I was consuming sugar, bread, pasta, and cereal everyday. I was also drinking heavily even though I was told to not do so. I went to 3 or 4 doctors who told me the side effects were in my head, but I knew they were wrong. I began to take it upon myself to discover what I was causing these problems. It was about 3 months ago that I became truly convinced that I had found my problem -- Candida Albicans. I have experienced hair loss, extreme scalp itching and burning, eyebrow and eyelash loss, extremely itchy skin, severe depression, anxiety, inability to sleep like I used to, a nasty white coat on my tongue also known as oral thrush. I can't eat almost any foods without getting itchy or having my symptoms come back. Since discovering this I have gone to 6 or 7 doctors who have told me I don't have Candida and that it is "a made up problem". I have been following a strict diet and taking multiple supplements to try and help the kill the fungus, but have failed. I have begged doctors to prescribe me something but all refuse too. I am desperate for answers and found this online. I just want my life back.

Sadly I've been trhough exactly what you are going through right now. Nobody wants to help you, they tell you that it's in your head, you are imagining it, etc. But that is clearly not the case, you know your symptoms better than anybody does. You cannot even get a good night of sleep because of the constant symptoms.

I think that you need to go on a good candida detox followed by a good diet. You should follow the book at the link on your right. It's got pretty much everything you need to get started, but be warned it's pretty strict. Other diets tend to be easier to follow, but you just don't get the same results.
