im such an idiot.....candida

had pizza last night (naughty i know)

had severe cramps after

started thinking gluten

bad nights sleep because of it so was thinking while in bed

2010 i was seeing a homeopathic dr for Hidradenitis

she did some allergy tests and haddock and candida flagged up

i stared treatment for candida and them mum went downhill so i stopped taking the meds and started eating bad (more of a grab and go type of eat) i spent all my time at mums

things went from bad to worse and we lost mum

all the stress and depression i just forgot about candida

first blood test was in 2011 for tthyroid TSH was 9 and no treatment

bloods in 2013 TSH 10.8 started treatment went downhill fast

back then i was taking oregano oil and caprylic acid but didnt do well with caprylic acid

ordered oregano oil to start is there anything else i should be taking?

allso trying to cut out all gluten from now

I had to stop eating ALL sugar, including fruit, when I was told that I had candida.


my triggers were cheese and bread, i was ok with fruit but foods containing sugar id get really bad and was told to avoid mushrooms


I don't have cheese, bread or mushrooms, and also have to avoid potatoes.

I cook everything from scratch now, but don't plan to live like this for the rest of my life!!


Hello Mandy, sorry to hear about your mum : < - no wonder you feel so depressed and stressed.

That is a great start with the Candida treatment but what about a really good quality probotic? Also maybe think of eating more garlic.

Oh also if you have milk, you might want to cut that down as well.

Take care


thank you kitten but this was in 2010, but never really gotten over it

i must get probiotics too

so far i have 300mg garlic, wormwood tincture and 150mg oregano oil and 750mg turmeric

i dont really use dairy now since slimming world, small amount of milk in my morning drink and thats it, the odd yogurt for whn i get a need for sugar
