Yes, there are people that have cured themselves but its a really tough battle. I have been fighting it for a year now, am better, but I know I still have a long way to go to say I'm cured.
Are you on the candida diet? That is a must and read up on the cleanses, bowel, liver and kidney. You will not get well trying to kill it, thats a hopeless battle, instead you have to make your body and its environment a place where it can't survive. In other words, clean up your bowels and liver for sure.
