I’ve had people say that I claim all symptoms in the world mean you have Candida. They go on to say that Candida is a BS diagnosis.
Well, I could fill up a room will all the studies that confirm that Candida is not a “made-up” diagnosis.
Candida can create an incredible range of different conditions in the body. Why would that automatically deem it BS?
When I starting to treat Candida in the ’80s and ’90s, it’s not an exaggeration to say that I was verbally attacked by doctors. I remember having my business card thrown in the trash can by a doctor. I’ve been called every single name under the sun. But, you know what? That doesn’t worry me.

I’m still here, and I survived the Candida that nearly killed me when I was a young guy.
If you still have your doubts, go to the website for the Center for Disease Control and see how much misery Candida can cause.
One of the reasons Candida can cause such a wide range of symptoms relates to the immune response triggered by the yeast. Various mediators such as interleukins get released in response to the body detecting Candida. Interleukins are a compound made by white blood cells that can trigger a cascade of inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation can cause a whole host of symptoms, including pain, fatigue, and brain fog.
The effects of Candida can range from minor symptoms to fatal infections. Many people who die of cancer must also content with opportunistic Candida infections.
Chronically ill people often have massive Candida issues. That’s a scientific fact, not BS. Just as science proved that the earth isn’t flat, science has proved that Candida is a real problem for many people.
