I have to disagree with the statement that "candidiasis is a disease of lifestyle". In the majority of cases, if not all, yeast overgrowth (which is the precursor to candidiasis) is brought on by doctors who prescribe Antibiotics , steroid medications, and some birth control pills. All these products destroy our intestinal flora and allow yeast cells to take over the vacant space in the gut. This is how it gets started. Then, perhaps lifestyle comes into play when you "feed" the problem by a diet high in sugars, carbs, and yeast containing products. The yeast cells mutate and somehow make us crave sweets, carbs, breads, etc., which they need to survive and multiply. With these cravings come weight gain, lethargy, brain fog, and a long list of other symptoms which doctors prefer to treat individually. And, as everyone knows, it perhaps adds billions of dollars per year to the health care industry in doctor fees, hospital stays, and drug sales. It is very unfortunate that this condition is kept such a secret by health care professionals. This is obviously a case of profits taking priority over individual suffering.
