How to Know When You Need to See a Doctor About Candida

Although though there are thousands of people who are living testimony that the Candida diet can and does work, there are some people who need to seek professional medical attention. This may be for any number of reasons, but a common one include a pre-existing condition that would make the Candida diet ineffective or impossible to stay on. Another reason might be if you had food, skin or air-borne allergies that are having a severely restrictive result on your life. Finally, if you have followed all of the steps of the Candida diet, have used the supplements and added probiotics into your diet for an adequate amount of time but you still have the symptoms, you need to see a doctor.

What cannot be discounted is that you know your body better than anyone. If something feels not quite right, then you should see a doctor. You have the right to determine your own future health.

How to Decide and What to Expect?

You may find that it is necessary to combine a prescription medication to your existing Candida diet for the results that you need. This could be something like a prescription anti-fungal medication, which presents with risks that should be discussed at your appointment, or something to help with your digestion. Some people have undergone a series of tests with a doctor, and discover that there was another problem manifesting at the same time that their Candida overgrowth was.

If your health was compromised prior to the diagnosis of Candida overgrowth, before you start the diet you need to take the time to ensure that it is safe at this point for you to proceed. If you take medications that are known to have an effect on your health, like those that treat cancer, HIV or if you are a transplant recipient, it is of the utmost importance that you do not stop taking those medications without the express approval of the medical care provider. If your yeast has progressed to a point, where typical movements are painful, or if intimate relations or urination is painful, you cannot depend on the diet to cure the problem. Any of the previously mentioned symptoms could be related to another very serious or life-threatening illness and attempting to treat those symptoms with the Candida diet could be disastrous. After you have been assured that you don’t have a bacterial infection or an underlying problem, the Candida diet can be a great choice, butt misdiagnosis of any of those symptoms could change your life.

Keep in mind that unless you are committed to only using the care providers that are approved by an insurance company or another decision making entity, you are likely to have better luck working with someone who works in the field of alternative medicine. That could include a chiropractor, a wellness specialist or anyone who has the appropriate training to make an accurate diagnosis outside Western medicine. These would be the types of medical professionals who are likely to be more familiar with the concepts associated with Candida overgrowth and the Candida diet.

The Candida diet and yeast overgrowth is a significant problem that could affect the majority of people in the United States. This problem does not discriminate due to age, gender or race and until we all begin making more informed decisions, it is not likely to get better anytime soon. You have the power and now you have the knowledge, so take the first step to a healthy, happy rest of your life.
