I recently went through an illness that started as being diagnosed as a urinary tract infection, then as prostatitis, then possibly chlamydia (even though no real action to cause it). After going through extensive antibiotic treatments to eliminate the "microorganism." The urinary tract symptoms went away. Soon after I started having red, itchy splotches all over. My allergies were in full swing and my nose was running all the time. My asthma seemed to return for the first time since I was a small child. I discussed this with my doctor and he put me on an inhaled corticosteroid. I was also put an a nasal spray and Zyrtec. It seemed to work for a while. My mother's friend mentioned that it might be a candida overgrowth and mentioned a way to help it. I eat at least two cups of yogurt everyday for the Acidolphilus and work out regularly. I have never taken any anti-fungal drugs for it. I changed my diet to limit the carbs I take in. Do you have any recommendations on what might help me find a good balance to control candida?

Of course this can all start with the indiscriminate use of antibiotics which dysregulates your immune system, but it progresses to leaky gut, then to gut wall infection and then on to chronic dysbiosis. Once candida and/or fungus appears, docs have no idea what to do so they deny you have a problem, or prescribe more antibiotics which simply dysregulates the immune system further. If you can locate a docs who is well versed inthe use of the SanPharma remedies you can recover your health if you also follow a proper diet. Diet alone will not do it. Naturally, you need to get an accurate diagnosis before commencing any treatment and as far as I can see you have only suspicions about a diagnosis so far. If you have dental amalgams your situation is complicated by the presence of mercury and if gut wall infection/dysbiosis is what you have, you will not recover until the amalgam is removed and you are chelated to remove the body burden of mercury.
