Sounds like DJ may think this Candida stuff is crap.
He's not alone...but...I did follow Flash's links (Somebody teach him how to do that "Optional Link" thingy!) and allow me to paste an except here:
By Paul Kwo a doc with CH : However, at least for the present time, my quality of life in the fall has been better this year than any time in the past fourteen years. Unfortunately, I do not believe that candida is the answer for all sufferers of cluster headaches. This is likely a process that has multiple causes with the cluster pain being the end stage manifestation. However, after reviewing the multiple reports of individuals at this site who have benefited from anti-candida therapy, I believe there is merit to this hypothesis. I post this in the hope that some of you will improve with some of the therapies I have listed. If you want to try anti-fungal therapy, this has to be done in conjunction with your physician and or neurologist (as do most of the other therapies that have listed above).
It is important that all individuals continue to post their experience with this disorder. There a lot of bright people out there who suffer from this, and I congratulate those who made the connection between cluster headaches and candida. Good luck, I would not wish this on anyone. For those of you who feel like giving up (and I have been there), I will say that I believe this condition can be inherited. One of the things that has kept me going is that my children may inherit this from me, and it is up to me to figure out how they can deal with this later should they come down with this.
I repeat "This is likely a process that has multiple causes with the cluster pain being the end stage manifestation."...AHHHHH where is Gary G. when ya need him!
...and where the hell has Doc Kwo gone to? He could at least stop by for a shot of Acidophilus once and a while.
MULTIPLE CAUSES! Take that one to the bank. Sooo... what "cures" one person will not "cure" everybody. Butt it WILL (OK...Might) cure someone else.
Scuse me while I get on my soapbox...Search the archives! Hit the links!...NEVER give up! (Where did I hear that recently?) A source for yer "pain management" is at this site! If ya want it delivered in 15 minutes or yer gonna demand yer...wellll.....
