Dr.Stoll, Help!! Rare strain of yeast!

Posted by Howard on February 02, 1999 at 18:54:54:

Dr. Stoll,
My wife has had burning and itching for about six weeks and went to her GYN. She had been taking large doses of broad spectrum antibiotics for Lymes, on and off, for over the coarse of ten years. Recently had been taking Diflucan,
100mg 2x per week for about six weeks and then went to 200 per day for the past week. GYN says might be a resistant strain of yeast since medicine has been non effective! He is getting a culture and sensitivity test. We are quite scared since this can run through the system and kill.
Can you please offer some possible avenues to take, she is commencing the diet immediately but I fear this may not be enough. Or perhaps too late????
Sincerely,
Howard

Dear Howard,

Typical allopathic blather. I don't doubt that her doc is doing the best he can. However, he is still "trying to force the health care camel through the eye of the allopathic needle".

This is not some strange resistant fungus but HER resistance that is the cause.

Don't worry about the fungus "getting into her blood and killing her". This only happens when someone is in the terminal stages of a cancer, AIDS, radiation poisoning, etc.--when the immune system is GONE.

Both the Lyme's AND the chronic candida are related to her immunity and improving that is MUCH more important than any treatment she can do.

SURELY, someone should begin to doubt the approach when "antibiotics have been used off & on for 10 years" and Lyme's is still there.

I once heard a great definition for insanity: When one continues to repeatedly do that very thing that has never worked in the past.

Walt

Dear Howard,
I wanted to respond to your posting because I feel in very much the same place as you. My wife and I have been posting to this board over the past couple of weeks regarding the elimination diet. Unfortunately for Linda, the elimination diet didn't result in the identification of any significant food sensitivities. One of the keys to this diet is that one will feel better when they have cleared their body of foods that they are sensitive to (I'm probably over simplifying here). Well Linda never had that turning point.

We are now looking AGAIN at the yeast problem. What I have learned is that the impact of a yeast overgrowth can be huge and very difficult to control - BUT it can be controlled and you will see dramatic improvement when the right treatment is found for your wife. When I say treatment I mean all of the things that Dr. Stoll mentions (skilled relaxation, whole foods and regular exercise) in additon to nilstat, diflucan etc.

Just wanted you to know that you're not alone. Feel free to write to me directly if you would like.

All the best.

Peter
