      OK, don’t want to beat a dead horse, but I would feel awful if I did not let as many people as possible know some of the things I am finding out from the naturopath. I should mention that these are basic facts, not things that he said, they were in western med. abstracts that I found.

      Anyway, besides antibiotics, steroids, bcp, imunosuppresants also can cause candida. I am witness to how sick one can get with candida, and all the problems that come with it. Kevie is so sick all the time, not cidp stuff other things. As well, because of the candida and leaky gut as a result, some of the side affects are also neurological. I AM NOT SAYING CANDIDA IS THE PROBLEM AND NOT CIDP, I am just saying that based on Kevie weaning down 100 grams in the last 7 months, to be off totally by June and NOT having neuro weakness, I have to think that the other neuro issues such as the fatigue, brain fog etc. ARE related to the candida. I guess I am saying consider asking your doc to do a comprehensive stool sample to check for candida if you have or still do take any of the above mentioned. It seems like it should be automatic protocol being that so many tings happen from candida. It is kind of funny how everyone gets up in arms about how toxic mold is externally but they really don’t think about what yeast does internally/ 😮

      Hi DK’s mom! I love that you keep up the dialogue. I just had an extensive visit with my nutrition based doc. I am off all grains to eliminate complex proteins from my diet. My candida has corrected, my gut has healed and my neuropathy is diminishing. My health has so improved in the past 15 months, it is shocking. I am older, and aging might have something to do with an inability to digest complex proteins, but I seriously think I had digestive problems when I was a kid. Shocking how it eventually resulted in GBS. I’m on meats, veggies and fruits, only. For years I never ate meats. This way of eating moderates the immune process and corrects my imbalances. For some of us, it really works. Keep spreading the word. There is no ONE way to health. We’re all different! 🙂

      Thanks luv2sail for the encouraging thoughts. I hope people do not think that I am saying this is the cure to cidp, but it certainly can help with the inflamatory process within us. The blood work and saliva and stool speak for themselves. 6 months ago we had no allergies, now we have chocalate, dairy, sugars etc. All as a result of the increased hitamine prod from incr. mast cells which result from candida and the leaky gut. I hope we too gan heal as you are! Thanks for your response, it gives me hope and sanity!!
