Alternative Medicine/candida albicans


is there a specialist in this field, as I have seen two doctors who both seem not to know much about this, only the thrush. I have been for colonic irrigation, of which he informed me I was riddled with candida albicans. the medication he proscribed worked wonders but have not cleared me of this. I know I have had this over ten years and i'm struggling to find the help I need , thanks mark

You should seek someone out in the alternative medicine field as this is basic knowledge. On the other hand, some of my colleagues in alternative medicine misunderstand the candida problem seeing it when it does not exist. Even if there is a candida problem, it could not be seen during a colonic irrigation. Normally, candida is present in the large intestine so using stool analysis is not of use for its detection.  The cause of true candida is a weakened immune system or a very strong fungal infection that takes hold in the body in spite of a strong immune system.  The treatment for your concerns may be very complex and must be based upon your biochemical uniqueness (blood work), via detailed questionnaires and interview.

Can I clariy further?

Thank you,
