A Homeopathic Pharmacist told me a year and 4 months ago I probably had candidiasis due to symptoms of itching, fatigue, sinus problems and my antibiotic treatment history. I spent months going to doctors who thought I needed to change detergents or bath soap, but saw no need in testing for Candida. I am now going to a D.O. who has been treating me for candidiasis for the past 5 months. He wants me to undergo IV vitamin and IV hydrogen peroxide treatment. I am not very willing to do this. Is IV treatment such as this a common medical practice with Candida? I have taken Diflucan for about 45 days, I take Acidophilus and Caprilic Acid daily. For the past four months I have been on a strict diet of no sugar or sugar-containing foods and low carbohydrate intake, approximately 30 grams daily. The only fruit I am allowed on this diet are fresh lemons, limes and tomatoes. I only drink water or decaffeinated peppermint herb tea. I can have no corn, carrots, or beets. The only nuts I can have are organic almonds, soy nuts, sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds. The rest of my diet is very similar to the diet posted on this site. I am confused about the diet posted here since sugar-containing foods such as fruit are included. I should be able to add a sugar or yeast food slowly now, but trying to add sugar in small amounts just makes me realize how much I have missed certain tastes. A little becomes alot. Then I have to tell myself that I just can't eat like I used to anymore. Also, almonds have 6-7 grams of carbohydrates per serving. I could eat almonds all day long but if I've had 2-3 servings of raw almonds or almond butter, within 5-15 minutes I start to itch on my face, the back of my head, around my waist and sometimes my back. This is the original symptom I had before I knew I had Candidiasis, although the problem was 100 times worse. I have had a food allergy test and am not allergic to almonds, nor am I eating anything that came up positive on the FAT. 3 weeks ago I got a sinus infection for which the doctor gave me a Claforan injection. This seemed to strike up the Candida growth again as I noticed within 24 hours that I itched like I did in the beginning. This lasted 4 days and has subsided almost to normal now. It did make me realize how much that aspect had improved. My biggest concern is that I don't feel much better than before I started this treatment. I don't itch as badly of course, but I don't have alot of energy, I still have trouble concentrating and feel like I'm in a fog. Does it seem to you that I'm on the right track with treatment?
