Customer Question

Hello Doctors,
All these lovely, so called "experts" in keep telling me that I have to "flush" out my system and buy all these expensive herbs and quit taking my dr prescribed medications to get rid of the candida infection throughout my body-I know it will help the fibromyalgia issue as well. I am just looking for a simple diet to follow to start getting rid of this poison in my system so I feel better. I feel so badly now, I want to chew off my own head.
TYVM in advance, my P.M. I see him 2morrow and he is not listening 2 me. He wants to stick me with needles and electrocute them.

Dear JACUSTOMER-tt1qyp0x; In my opinion, the two problems are unrelated. I mean there is no connection between Candida and fibromyalgia. But the latter is a form of autoimmune disorder and can have GI symptoms and be grouped with irritable bowel or spastic colon. But I vehemently reject any suggestion of a Candida syndrome, chronic bowel candida or any other so-called harboring of Candida and its "toxins." This is pure nonsense.For women who get recurrent or persistent Candida of the vagina or tongue, Acidophilus three times daily and live-bacterial cultured yogurt twice daily works just fine. Good luck
