This Group is for anyone who is or has suffered from Systemic Candida, knows someone who is or has suffered from Systemic Candida, or wants to learn about Systemic Candida. I am almost better now, and if you haven't found your way yet, we can help! Also see my new website for my new non profit,, to raise awareness of this debilitating condition that affects so many.

Systemic Candida is an illness which compromises the immune system. This can be caused by taking too many antibiotics, steroids, birth control pills, combined with poor diet and nutrition, too much sugar, alcohol, and too many white carbohydrates like rice, potatoes, flour, pasta.

This is a condition which is not recognized by conventional doctors, and it is being misdiagnosed as it masquerades as many different types of illnesses, including mental illnesses like depression and Bipolar, Thyroid, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Irritable Bladder Syndrome, Adrenal Failure, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, and includes many symptoms such as panic attacks, weight gain, joint problems, short term memory loss, sensitivities to chemicals and perfumes, and many more.

Holistic Medicine recognizes this illness. It is best to be seen by someone in Integrative Medicine to be diagnosed and treated. However, most people end up self diagnosing and self treating due to how confusing this condition is to doctors. That's if they are lucky.

Help is needed to increase the awareness of this illness. I was just saved from a worse fate, and would like to organize a group to provide support to each other, raise awareness in the general public, and help others find their way to health.

After losing three jobs, my sanity for a while, my home, and my eight year relationship, I am finally on my way to a new beginning. While lying in bed recovering from this illness, I started a business, and a non-profit.

My purpose in life now is to get the word out to prevent others from suffering, get my non profit off the ground, and to inspire others to help.

I have had this hanging on my wall for some time, by Emily Dickinson:

Hope is the thing with Feathers,
It perches in the Soul,
It Sings the Tune,
Without the Words,
And never stops at All.

If you haven't found it elsewhere, you may have just found hope.
