I've really only recognized the symptoms as Candida for one year (now that I look back), I've only known that I had it systemically, for about a month and a half, so I'm still early on in figuring this whole thing out. But you could be right. I was dosed constantly with Antibiotics as a kid. To think this has been starting since I was a child! Ack! I mean, at least I have the power of knowledge now, and knowing is half the battle, as GI Joe says.
The symptoms have gotten really bad since I've given birth, and I thought it was because my doctor kept giving me Antibiotics since baby was born (6 months ago) but I found a homeopath and he has this theory about how giving birth is stressful and can feed Candida. He went through a long explanation, about hormones and chemical reactions, that I am a little bit too brain dead to follow, but that's in essence what he said. So that could be behind the reason why it's worse now than before I gave birth.
I had been not too strict with my diet, but I've got to be strict and STAY on it.
Killing Candida is like an all-day project isn't it? This supplement, that supplement, this cleanse, that cleanse, antifungals....ahhhhh!
