I also have a low throid condition, a gluten problem & my adrenals are very stressed. Since I found out all my problems from my last bowel test. I have changed my thyroid med's, eating gluten-free foods when I can, And I'm taking more supplements for my adrenals. Dr. Tom is healing my whole body as well as my colon issue.
For my Candida problem I have been taking Spanish Black Radish, Zymex & ZymexII. All these supplements are for yeast, bad bacteria & parasites. They are made by Standard Process.
I have had a candida problems for many many years. My problems started with IBS which I had for almost 20 years. I had loose bowels & diarrhea attacts after I ate a meal within 15-20 minutes, The colon doctors told me there was nothing wrong I had IBS. Which was something I had to live with for the rest of my life. They told me to eat a lots of fiber like salads & vegetables. They also gave me med's for my intestinal spasms. Nothing ever worked I still had my symptoms for years.
Then I decided to go to a holistic doctor. They gave me a bowel test which I had to do at home & sent out to a lab. My tests came back that I had a severe Candida Yeast Problem which was a 4 +. I had lots of bad bacteria & hardly any good bacteria. The doctor told me to stay off of all sugar except stevia. I was on anitfungals to kill the yeast growth & a yeast diet.
The untifungals made me very sick from the dye offs you get with Candida. I used to get off of them in about two weeks. I couldn't stand the nasuea it was so bad. I went to another holistic doctor who used a Candida yeast shake to kill the yeast. I didn't have any problems with that! I used the shake for a few months & got retested to see where my level was at. Everthing came down but I had to watch what I ate. Cause the yeast would start to grow again. It went like this for many years up & down.
I really got tired of this yo yo yeast problem that never went away. I found a Chiropractor in a holistic setting where there are other professionals who do a variety of work. Dr. Tom does functonal medicine on me. He really knows the colon & how to get it back in balance. Then my yeast infection will be gone. I am now working on healing my colon from all different angles. Healing the leaky gut that you get with this problem. Getting the bad bacteria under control as as well as the good bacteria. Also working on getting my PH to a more alkaline level.
This is my story on my Candida infection. Dr. Tom is getting my while body back to health.
