Description: To educate physicians and their clients alike about the modern epidemic of Candida infections on account of antibiotic overuse and abuse, Sehnert and Winderlin have created a comprehensive manual describing Candida-related complex (CRC), the Candida organism, and Candida’s impact, especially on the immune system. They first establish that CRC is a real illness that will eventually be fully recognized by the general medical community, but many doctors have not been trained to detect it. They point out that the complex, caused by a normally harmless yeast organism, produces symptoms that vary from individual to individual and include fatigue, food intolerances, depression, anxiety, headaches, and memory impairment. A separate section on treatment covers the basics of recovery: a limited carbohydrate diet, prescribed antifungal medications, probiotics (i.e., “friendly” bacteria), and substances that naturally boost the immune system, such as vitamins A, C, and E. Appendixes list suggested readings, support groups, physicians treating CRC, and more.
