Candida Health Issues and Medicine
Since last June, I had been suffering from poor digestion, fatigue, and itchiness all over my body; the signs of the overgrowth of yeast. I was diagnosed with the Lyme’s disease. The antibiotics with which I was treated with medicines; I had totally upset the balance of the microflora in my gastrointestinal tract. Which then led to dysbiosis.
Everything was totally wrong with me during the preceding summer months; as I had swollen glands, stiff necks, pain in my knees and joints and extreme fatigue. I had never suffered from such conditions and diseases before.
Candida or Candidiasis is a serious health issue. Which is a sort of fungal infection; that arises either on the skin, or on the mucous membranes. It is caused by candida. Candida is known as the remarkable pathogen; that can cause these infections in the body. This can be both superficial; as well as systematic as they penetrate the epithelial barriers.
Even the ones who look healthy can actually suffer from this issue. As their infection lies deep within their body. The symptoms of this serious health issue often imitate the symptoms of the other illness. Hence it is difficult to get detected.
The most common health issues caused due to Candida

The doctor prescribed a medicine called Doxycycline; which I had to take every day. I was assured to be better. But even after four months of consuming the medicine; I still felt lethargic with a foggy brain. Along with them, some other symptoms started occurring in my body. An acute sensation of itching plagued my body; as if bugs were crawling in and out of my skin.
Stubborn acne started appearing all over my face, as well as my digestion was also painful. I had headaches and low levels of energy. Which did not allow me to pay proper attention to my classes and assignments. All that I craved to have was fruit, bread, and cereals; which were sugary sweet.
After researching about my condition over the internet
I found that I had Candida. Which is the yeast that leads to such conditions and diseases. Immediately, I ordered an antifungal supplement named Fungal Defense. Along with it; Three Lac, which is known to be a probiotic; as an alternative to medicine. I began to feel some improvements after taking them routinely. Before every shower I almost bathed my body in coconut oil.
The internet provided me the information of coconut being a powerful antifungal as well as a relief to itchiness and dry skin at the same time. I convinced myself to avoid sugar and filled my diet with beer, pizza and sometimes candy. Instead of having cake as well as ice cream, I occasionally had balsamic vinegar in my salads.
I soon had a visit to my doctor who helped me with proper diet for treating the conditions and diseases related to Candida. Along with the medicines, probiotics and the antifungals; I was prescribed a diet which did not have the grains. Including the ones like millet, Kamut, quinoa and more. Dairy products, vegetables containing high sugar; like parsnips and carrots, sauces and vinegars used for dressings. Except apple cider vinegar. And Alcohol, fermented foods and of course all the refined sugars that makes the yeast glad to get multiplied in the body.
Now I try to maintain the principle of the balanced diet
This is a great precaution for all the diseases. Of course the proper foods that keeps the candida in control. The Candida control diet is the best alternative of taking medicine; for treating such conditions as well as diseases. Always follow the medicine prescribed by doctors for treating the Candida conditions as it is very important.
