AppId is over the quota
Chronic Candidiasis is a systemic, or whole system, yeast infection. It may or may not exhibit the external symptoms typically associated with yeast infection and can thus go undiagnosed or even misdiagnosed.
The term Chronic Candidiasis Syndrome has been coined to describe this condition. It is often associated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) since on-going (chronic) low-engery (fatigue) is a common symptom for both. Chronic Candidiasis is thought to result from an intestinal or gastronomic yeast infection.

What's the best way to treat chronic intestinal Candidiasis?

I have had chronic Candidiasis for years after taking many, many courses of antibiotics. I have been treating it with Pao D'arco and probiotics, but lately the Pao D'arco doesn't seem to be working. I've tried garlic, caprylic acid and psyllium, and a few herbal blends, none worked very well. What would be the most effective natural treatment for Candida? Any kind of treatment suggestions would be nice.

Additional Details

Ok. let me be more specific, yes, I have been diagnosed by 2 medical doctors as having candidiasis. Yes, I already follow a no sugar, no white flour, no simple carbs, low-glycemic index diet, and have been taking acidopholus for many years. No, I do not have a psychological problem. I have a medically diagnosed over-growth of yeast in my intestines because of large doses of anti-biotics that were prescribed to me as a child when doctors gave antibiotics for everything, bacterial or not. I'm allergic to penicillin so I've taken the same antibiotic over and over again. Oxygen treatment has not helped. I'm looking for reviews of herbal products.

Actually, the best thing you can do is change your diet. No sugar, no simple carbs. Period. Sugar means corn syrup, honey and/or maple syrup, fructose and other sweeteners too.

Simple carbs should be eliminated if they are white-white rice, white bread, white pasta, white flours, etc. Even bananas should be avoided. You can still eat high fiber fruits and grains but be sure they are unprocessed as much as possible. Those are what feeds the yeast. If it has no food it dies.

I have also had success using small amounts of herbs with berberine compounds (i.e. golden seal or Oregon grape root) Too much of those act just as antibiotics to though, so you should really ask an naturopath to monitor you if you wish to try that route.

Acidophiles is another supplement that may be helpful. The best way to get it is by ingesting it in live culture form-often people will eat yogurt.
