Suffering with Candida is not the end of the world. There is hope! There are many diets and stress management programs that can completely reverse Candida. First be sure to seek your physician and see what the real problem is. Sometimes Candida can be a symptom of a serious illness, or disease. So just fighting the symptom, will not get rid of the cause of it.

Thyroid conditions such as Hoshimoto's disease can cause candida. Also Stress can definitely trigger cortisol hence causing candida. Most times Candida can be caused from overuse of anti-biotics without a pro-biotic (yogurt-plain) plan. Even kidney problems or auto-immune disorder.

So it is very important to start seeing your physician, to get to the root of the problem and then begin a plan of recourse, and a diet to get rid of Candida.
