A friend asked me how we can tell our candida food allergies. She wants to know if it is a reaction right away and how we feel. She has been doing so much reading over the past week she can’t remember it all, but she remembers reading on some web site that if you have Candida you have a delayed reaction to food allergies thus making it hard to pin point just what it was that caused you problems.

Often people base their identity on being the caregiver, the strong one, etc in the relationship. Faced with the possibility that the situation might change, many people start fighting your recovery.
