So, having spent the whole bloody day at the V.A. Hospital in San Juan (all results as perfect as perfect can be ) I have come home to help William do a little research on Candidiasis. Edit ~ My trip to the V.A hospital is unrelated to William's quest to combat Candida. Just wanna' make sure that was clear. Candidiasis is a systemic overgrowth of the yeast Candida which is blamed for everything from weight gain and fatigue to stock market crashes and global warming. He wants me to find good ways to combat and control Candida because of a comment made to him by a whispy, hippy-dippy, prone-to-spouting-metaphysical-stuff friend of his who put it into his head that Candida is the root of all evil, and most definitely the cause of his recent (slight) weight gain. I'm trying to be supportive, but everything I find as support for why Candida is bad is: 1) Aimed at women, who have their own reasons to be concerned with Candida. 2) More Western approach articles explaining that unless you have a damaged immune system or have eradicated your intestinal flora with heavy antibiotics, then Candida is a false enemy. 3) Articles with little to no scientific verbiage written by Barley and Bran Silverstien (husband and wife homeopaths) giving quasimetaphysical explanations about how we are all energy and there is good and bad energy and Candida is bad ju-ju which you need to combat with a wholistic blah blah blah. What's a good, supportive boyfriend to do??
