My story-in short. I ate a very hi carbo diet, got pregnant, horrible heart burn, lived off of Tums, gave birth and 4 months later got pregnant again, horrible heart burn, lived off of Tums.
In the middle of my second pregnancy, started to get symptoms of candida, and after the birth was diagnosed with several food allergies and a candida overgrowth. That child is my only child that has any food allergies , he also has signs of ADHD--which also runs in my husbands family. If it is connected to the candida-- who knows.
I had another pregnancy after that, when I was on the candida diet. I did not know what I would do about all the horrible heartburn, since obviously Tums were out of the question. But, as long as I stayed on the candida diet, I did not have heart burn. That child is, thank God, a very healthy child.
Is short, I would not put off your life. This candida thing seems to take a while to get over. If you are bed ridden from the candida, I would advise taking a little time to at least become functional.
