Yeast/candida overgrowth


Hello, I am 24 years old and I believe I have a yeast or candida overgrowth. I think I have had it for two years or longer. Two years ago I started taking birth control and then I realised that it was making my hair fall extremely fast ( a year later I decided to go off that specific pill) I tried a different birth control pill but right away I would get yeast infections. I had staying on that pill for two months and I had two yeast infections. During this time I started having recurring UTIs so I took plenty of antibiotics and what not. Not knowing that it was going to wreck havoc in my body. After going off the pill completely, I decided to use the Kyleena IUD to prevent any unwanted pregnancies but that did not workout so well either so two weeks ago I took it out. Now I am birth control free, but I still feel horrible all over. I eat fairly healthy, I don’t overdo sugars or anything but this past year I was extremely stressed since I was finishing with my last semester of college. Now I am depressed for no reason, I am extremely exhausted all the time,I had ringworm, I have toenail fungus, I have rashes, but no yeast infections or UTIs as of right now. The last one I had came on the day of my graduation ceremony, both yeast infection and UTI at the same time ( may 12th) so I had to take antibiotics and antifungals for the infections.

Can anyone please let me know what I could do to get myself back together. I am feeling extremely hopeless today and would love to see if anyone else had to deal with this issue and how they overcame it.

Thank you!

Please discuss with your G.P Meanwhile ensure any meds you take are not negatively interacting. I was taking topiramate or topamax with pain killers & since stopping my many fungal issues are going. I lost so much hair all my limb & arm hair. I had tinea versicolor toenails dropping off thick coated tongue awful.

Boost your immune system & ask for a blood test to ensure everything is optimum.

Use per & probiotics to replace any disturbed flora in the gut. I use Lindens the 'MAX' version as it contains both pre & probiotics. They really keep my gut clean & flat tum.

After stress check your B12 & other B vits

Nu spray B12 with q10 & green apple will give an immediate boost. Take one or 2 bottles 4 sprays a day & no more as your B12 will be optimum by then & your spirits should be good & ready for anything.

Barocca Boost or generic type with guarana are a good immune boosting vit complex. In UK tesco do a generic Boost half the price also in tubes of effervescent tablets.

Make sure you have a brisk walk or burst of energy each day to naturally release those feel good endorphins.

Be well.

Maybe I think you need to be tested for Lyme disease. A lot of doctors Mis diagnose the rash as ringworm when it’s actually an EM rash
