Hi Doctor Jeff,
As a child i was prescribed a mountain of antibiotic drugs. It was a regular occurance for at least the first fifteen years plus of my life. Without knowing anything about candida i now realise i have been living with these critters inside my system from early childhood. I remember being freezing cold all the time, brain fogged anxious and stressed, poor circulation, sugar cravings, and all the other classic symptoms that are connected to the condition.
When i was 24 years old i recieved a contraception injection called depo provera which caused major irritation in my bladder not long after having the shot. I have been living with this bladder irritaation for 13 years now and to be honest had never even considered the possibility of it being yeast. I have recently been reading about hormones feeding candida and forming a type of sugar that feeds them. I'm now wondering if this could have been the reason for this problem appearing way back then. I have also recently discovered a condition called yeast cystitis that causes a significant bladder irritation as well as other symptoms. Could this be me do you think?
Also over the last two weeks i took a natural product with lots of alkaline salts contained and created a huge flare up of bladder irritation that was previously pretty calm. Could pouring five glasses of alkaline salts in to hyper acidic tissues have caused this. Could there be an yeast infestation in my bladder?
I would massively appreciate your help Dr Jeff,Thank You so much,
