Any Generic Fungal Disease Solutions
I am totally anti-conventional medicine so it really takes a lot for me to break down and go to a doctor's office.
But I used to have problems with candida albicans quite frequently. And the first thing they do is hand out a prescription...or two...or three. And Since I always had just as much problems with the cure as I did with the disease, well I just don't wish to go that route.
But since I have been struggling with this now for over a year to different levels of infection, it seems to me there should be something which treats, not just masks the symptoms.
It all started with a bad UTI and homeopathic drugs took care of that problem and it has cleared up over the last six months. But this candida just does not want to give up yet my daily diet can't get much cleaner.
Yes I know the problem area now is fresh fruit. I eat too much, usually about 3-5 servings daily. But I don't eat it because it tastes good, I eat it because of its high water levels and electrolyte levels. These 100 degree temps with high humidity just does me in. And plain water just does not give me the nourishment I need to sustain health in this weather.
So anyone have luck with anything else? Right now, I am using calendula cream to treat the infection when it soars out of control. I use raw apple cider vinegar as a wash every time I use the toilet (and yes, that's pretty often most of the time if you are familiar with candida you know you are always fighting the uncontrollable urge to go).
I use a surgical scrub cleanser to clean and wash the skin. It keeps the skin clean but it has no properties to fight the fungal infection.
So anyone have any other ideas? My Naturopath closed his office back in February and he has not re-opened yet to accept patients again. I'm pretty sure he could come up with some homeopathic remedy which might help but I can't talk to him yet because of this virus.
So any other candida sufferers out there?
