1.) How long have you had candida? started noticing symptoms (although unaware at the time what was causing them) when I was eight years old (18 years ago), but at a really debilitating level, I would say about five or six years ago
2.) How did it affect you neurological, digestive, emotional etc
(I am still dealing with these, only much better than before) INTENSE depression, constant bloating/gas, increasing intolerance to certain foods, unexplained mood swings, intense loneliness
3.)What do you think caused it?
I was on amoxicilin (I think that's how to spell it) on and off for about two and a half years due to multiple ear infections
4.) How long have you been treating?
about 8-10 months
5.) How much progress have you made ? What % of symptoms are gone?
I would say I've come from a 40-50 percent health rating to about 70-85 currently
6.) What do you think was the most effective treatment?
avoiding sugars, grains, carbs, dairy, gluten, caffeine, chlorinated tap water and taking lots of probiotics and eating whole, organic foods as well as cleanses (maker's diet cleanse protocol, double Clarkia parasite
killer, colonix, and candigone)
