Nicole Chayka, co-author of Fringe Dweller on the Night Shift,& Canadian gal on a journey to live off the Grid with Middle Earth HomeI, Nikki, am Blogging my crazy thoughts and cravings during my on-going Candida Cleanse, in a step by step journal titled The Candida Chronicles, so I can share with you the The Dietary Rules, the Meal Plans and Recipes, the Tips and Facts, and most importantly, the Results. If I can lick this problem, letting ‘Food be my Medicine’ and only using Herbals then you can too! Day 1 of my Candida Journal STARTS HERE.

Take the preliminary Candida Quiz to see what Candida is,and if you have the Symptoms of this nasty Yeast condition affecting both women, and men.

Day 8 is the last of the symptom categories from the book, Overcoming Candida: The Ultimate Cookery Guide by author Xandria Williams which are the Symptoms in your Medical History:

Frequent use of antibiotics
Taking the contraceptive pill
Use of steroid drugs such as cortisone or prednisone
Symptoms made worse by damp, humid weather
Feel worse in dank or mouldy environments
Increased sensitivity to chemicals and pollutants

By now you should have a better idea if you think you have Candidiasis.  If you think your Self-diagnosis is obvious then it is time to have it confirmed by a Naturopathic Doctor.  If they in turn agree with you, then you have just saved yourself a world of hurt by being misdiagnosed by the ‘establishment’ of Western Medicine which is still debating if Candidiasis actually exists.  Do you get the impression I am not a fan of Western medicine?  I am not.

I feel too often they Push Pills to treat the symptoms instead of getting to the root of what caused the condition in the first place.  I am not saying every doctor in North America conducts themselves this way (thank you Dr. Oz) but too many still do.  Now that you know what you are dealing with you can also go down the correct road for treatment rather than getting stuck on the ‘antibiotic’ treadmill, which incidentally only exasperates the condition that you are trying to resolve!
