i remember an appointment with my naturopath when i was all gung ho about candida. she said no, no, candida is a secondary infection - but here's this diet plan for ms. i looked at it, then gave her a funny look and said 'but, that's an anti-candida diet!'
so off i went and did my anti-candida thing, but with little success ...until i discovered and corrected the underlying nutritional problems that pre-existed my msdx, i was stuck. zinc turned out to be one of my major problems at that time.
interestingly, the dietary measures my naturopath gave me to consider for ms would yes also counter candida overgrowth, but notably would also help improve zinc status (and a few other things too). this nuance was something it would take me quite some time to realise.
this next post will potentially look a little unfamiliar in this thread, but nonetheless here's me back in the day, trying to be scientific about the candida line of thinking:antibiotics-f28/topic2543-15.html#p16015
now i'm trying to find the post where sarah dissed me over the whole gliotoxin approach - anecdote it was so long ago but can you find it now by chance?? you might remember the words you used better than i... or perhaps could link to the study, or recall the question you referred to david??, on the subject...?
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
