Are Swollen Joints and Skin Sores Part of Candida Symptoms?

Not everybody with candida has symptoms like swollen joints and skin sores. When it happens to you, it is completely understood how it can be confusing. Do you have small red patches on your hands? And how do you know if it is candida-related?

One man shares this confusion. For example, he finds that his joints are not sore, but they turn to be very sure whenever he bends his fingers where the skin is raw. He has started doing the diet, and at various times, taken acidophillus, nystatin, diflucan, GSE, olive leaf extract, garlic, pau d’arco, and caprylic acid.

After seeing a kinesiologist recently, he took a paraway for parasites, and is now taking magnesium, GSE, b-complex, garlic, linseed, acidophillus and caprylic acid. He has been feeling very up and down, terrible at times, with days when he feels noticeably better. The oral thrush, which is the worst symptom other than feeling constantly run down and waking up with a cold every morning, is not getting any better and is driving him mad.

It seems that he is taking a lot of things that work strongly, for example: the cleansing and the killing. It would be helpful if he could possibly add things at the same time, as far as they are allowed, that would be builders. Builders help us when we are doing a lot of cleansing and they help to also ‘buffer’ the pain and reactions we experience.

By the way, a very good thing for the stomach, intestinal tract and that would be ‘ok’ for him right now is slippery elm. It is an herb that soothes and helps stomach, GI tract, and also bowel movements, among other wonderful things it does. Some people make pudding out of it. You can try it too but mixing the slippery elm, which comes like a clumpy powder into about two ounces of any ‘allowable’ juice or water, and stir it up until it becomes a good consistency.
