I might be shooting myself in the foot here, but I've been closely following Flash's posts with regard to Candida (and all of Michel L's and Dr. Kwo's research) and it's got me to thinkin.....(that's always dangerous).
DJ's (and I'm sure countless others') 'non-comments' about the subject also have me thinking.
OK, here goes. Are we on the wrong track here? I'm leaning towards the thinking that perhaps Candida is an EFFECT of clusters...instead of being one of the causes. How many of you out there have been (mis)diagnosed as having sinus infections and therefore prescribed a course antiobiotics to correct that? How many of you have a sweet tooth (especially when you were children)? How many of you enjoy alcohol? How many of you continue to drink cow's milk and other dairy products in your adult years? All are contributing factors to developing an overgrowth of Candida. The clusterheads I've spoken to personally can all answer these questions positively. Is it just coincidence? Or is the cluster condition/persona conducive to becoming a 'candidahead'?
The reason I'm leaning this direction is that I am a 'candidahead'. But I am NOT a clusterhead. Why not? If candida is a cause of clusters, why doesn't it cause them for me? Candida overgrowth is a VERY common condition and probably more widespread than any of us realize.
I desperately don't mean to be a naysayer here. I'm really just thinking out loud. Er...on paper. Er...on screen.
Never mind. Sorry, Flash.
