This is probably going to get some arguements but whatever i can handle it, haha.
I suspected when my acne was its absolute worst ( 20ish pimples on my face, red marks covering my entire face that my probably could be a candida overgrowth. Besides acne i always felt so tired i had too sleep a few times in the day and i couldnt even concentrate. I also never had normal bowels and i would eat and crave sugar, carbs anything i could get my hands on.
Before this i had tried an "alkalising" diet, i ate lots of potatoes and sweet potatoes, raisins, carrots, etc i expected to feel amazing but i felt so sick i had to run to the bathroom in school to throw up and i felt bad for days after. If your not aware of "bad foods" on candida diet, i just listed all of them, haha. Then i went to a friends birthday and drank for the first time, vodka, beer and lots of it. well about half an hour later i was nearly screaming with pain at my stomach and felt like i was dying (alcohol is full of sugar) i couldnt even think of the reason i thought i must be a freak! I also noticed when i tried to be healthy and eat heeeaps of fruit i brokeout all over my forehead in itchy red lumps that wouldnt go away.
Eventually i tried a candida diet for two months, really strict and my acne went away. like completely, not even any red marks which is crazy. I looked up the kind of acne that you get when you have candida and it said lots of tiny lumps or very small whiteheads and some under the skin that are very sore (my life story!) and a rash like textured to the skin (what i thought was "red marks")
Around the two month mark thoguh i had a very tough time emotionally after a bad situation and started leaning towards my bad foods again. cookies, rice, takeaways etc.. and it all came back, probably even worse. then in september i started the Paleo diet. full force, no carbs, just meat, eggs and veges. again the acne went away and i noticed i could even eat dairy and my face got better. ( plain no sugar yogurt, which they say kills CANDIDA?)
Does this all seem like a coincindence? and that maybe it was just the diet and not candida? its just that if i stray a bit i break out and it annoys the hell outta me. if i do have it how can i make it go FOR GOOD?! i dont want to be yo-yoing through life, its so exhausting!
