My health came crashing down about 2 years ago when I started having trouble with gut inflammation/pain and intolerance to all carbs, and multiple food/drug sensitivities. I have been on a very strict anti-candida diet for almost a year, have visited untold numbers of doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors, etc. but no one has been able to make a dent in my symptoms.
From what I can understand, my two MTHFR genetic mutations (C677T and A1298C) cause an inability to detoxify. In addition, everyone in my family is gluten intolerant, but I didn't think I had a problem with it, so I didn't stop eating it until I was around 45 years old (I'm 51 now). This probably led to severe gastro issues.
Most recently, I am working with a DAN doctor (I'm not autistic, but these practitioners seem to have the best research backgrounds). He is an MD who went to "the dark side" of alternative medicine because he has a severely autistic son. He says I need to get the candida under control before addressing methylation. I just finished 30 days of Flucanozole, but am positive the candida is still there.
It seems as if my yeast won't go away because I can't detox, and I can't detox because my yeast won't go away. HELP! I know that I need to take B12, B6, folate, magnesium, zinc, and TMG, but everything aggravates the candida. Should I push past this, and let it get worse for awhile in hopes that my methylation kicks in and helps get rid of the candida? PS The aforementioned supplements have recently resulted in dramatic turnarounds for my 80 year old mother, my 52 year old sister, and her 24 year old son. We definitely have a genetic issue. Mine seems a bit more complex, however, because of candida. Can anyone make suggestions on how you have proceeded with similar health issues?
