Which multivitamin brand should i take while on candida diet ..

Which multivitamin brand should i take while on candida diet ..

"Candida diet": Although suggested by some alternative medicine practitioners, there is very little evidence to suggest that Candida overgrowth actually occurs. There are no clinical trials that show a candida cleanse diet treats anything. However, stopping sugar and processed foods is probably a good idea anyway.

Me= yeast infection for 3 mos. Tried creams, boric acid, Candida diet, probiotics, garlic, etc. Taking iron pills 4 anemia- could that be feeding it?

Yeast infection: You do not say whether you have used anti-fungals in your treatment, either topically or orally. That is the best way to treat Candida vulvovaginitis. Iron is highly unlikely to have anything to do with this. If you persist despite this you may be being reinfected by your sexual partner and they could be treated as well. If still an issue make sure your immune system is intact. Good luck. ...Read more

Could i delivered a healthy baby while taking clonazapam(klonopin) while pregnant?

It's possible...: Anti-seizure medicines raise the odds of birth defects.
