Ok story time. My candida diet journey began years ago when I visited a naturopath who diagnosed me with candida overgrowth and suggested I follow a strict diet with supplements to heal my body and correct the following symptoms I was dealing with such as: Brain fog Muscle & joint aches Tinnitus Oral thrush Bloating
