candida and Yeast infection Symptoms Doctor

Are Candida and Yeast infection the Underlying Cause of your Medical Condition?

One of the biggest question around candida and yeast infections is why there are so many misses? Patients go from one doctor to another, hear different opinions, get different treatments and medications but their issues don’t heal, come back or get worse.

Everyday we hear stories from people that have suffered from health issues for years, sometimes their entire lives. They were told they had asthma, diabetes, chronic skin conditions, not one single word about candida or yeast infections. They spent enormous amount of time, energy, money, and they weren’t healed.
However once the yeast infection was identified and treated, they felt better after a few days or weeks and very quickly all their serious medical conditions miraculously vanished.

If this sounds familiar and you are still looking to get better, you are not alone! and we are here to help.
In this post – we’ll start with the “why there are so many misses” question, then, most importantly, we’ll explore what you can do about it.

Candida and Yeast infection – What’s the Story with the Diagnosis?

Candida and yeast infections typically affect different body systems with symptoms all over the body. This can make the diagnosis challenging at times, especially when the focus is on individual symptoms. For example – a patient complains about feeling depressed lately with no particular reason to explain the depression, the doctor prescribes anti-depression medication thinking “case closed”.
What will happen if – the doctor will ask one more question – “do you have other health issues that have been bothering you?”
And what if the patient will then tell also about some digestion issues, and some dryness in his or her feet between the toes…

The lesson is simple yet often overlooked – the key to a complete healing is to look at the entire person and body holistically in order to discover how all the different symptoms and issues are connected together – so the source or the root cause can be identified and properly treated.

Treating the wrong condition or only the symptoms, especially if antibiotics or other drugs are prescribed, can cause existing candida overgrowth to become worse with the “treated” symptoms coming back with a vengeance.
