Denne siden er under utarbeidelse.

Våren 2012 leste jeg boken “The yeast syndrome: how to help your doctor identify & treat the real cause of your yeast-related illness” av John P. Trowbridge. Og forsto at jeg kanskje hadde candida (en type gjærsopp). Etter noen runder i helsevesenet fikk jeg tilslutt diagnostisert candida hos en norsk lege. Etter det fikk jeg hjelp av en amerikansk candida ekspert til en urtekur mot candida, gikk på den i mellom 2 og 3 år, og ble mye bedre.

Etter å ha lest nevnte bok tok jeg tarmskyllinger i Oslo på Tveintanklinikken. Marianne Tveitan så at det som kom ut av meg liknet på candida. Hun mente jeg hadde sopp. Jeg dro til Balderklinikken og forsøkte å få det diagnostisert hos en lege der. Jeg tok en avføringsprøve. Den var negativ både for candida og for parasitter. Det skulle vise seg at jeg var positiv for begge. Så slike prøver gir ikke nødvendigvis riktig resultat. Hovedproblemet er at leger ikke kjenner testenes begrensninger. Leger godtar testene ukritisk.

Avføringstest tatt på Balderklinikken 2012. Analysen ble gjennomført hos Doctors Data. Testen viste positiv for tarmbakterien Klebsiella oxytoca. Den viste negativ for yeast, dvs gjærsopp. Candida er en type gjærsopp. Samme test viste også negativ for parasitter, noe jeg skriver om et annet sted her på bloggen. Selv om jeg hadde både candida og parasitter. candida-minhistorie-01-20120507-doctorsdata-avforingsprove

Tilslutt dro jeg til en annen lege, Anne-Gret Bauman. Hun tok en allergitest mot Candida Albican, eller sannsynligvis mot et avfallsprodukt fra Candida Albican. Hun påviste IgE antistoffer hos meg mot dette. Har man candida blir man ofte allergisk mot stoffene denne soppen produserer. Så da hadde vi en diagnose. Jeg kan ikke helt vurdere hvor treffsikkert dette er. Jeg fikk med en gang resept på Fluconazol (diflucan), som er et aptekmiddel mot candida. Jeg opplevde med en gang symptomlindring. Så da var det ganske klart at jeg hadde candida. Bauman sa at hun hadde hatt pasienter på fluconzol i 3 år. Jeg er ikke komfortabel med å gå på medisiner så lenge. Jeg gikk på fluconazol i 5 uker. Deretter begynte jeg på en urtekur, høsten 2012. Jeg fikk hjelp av candida eksperten Michael Biamonte i USA. Vi hadde månedlige telefonsamtaler. Jeg justerte dietten. Det er endel ting man ikke kan spise dersom man skal bli kvitt candida. Men dietten er ikke veldig restriktiv, den er en type paleo diett. Og jeg kjøpte urter og andre anticandida midler av han. Etter et halvt år var candida symptomene borte. Jeg gikk på kuren i 3 år før jeg sluttet med tilskuddene. Jeg har ikke hatt candida tilbakefall siden. Dietten holder jeg stort sett på fortsatt, selv om jeg ikke tenker mye på candida nå når jeg legger opp kostholdet. Jeg har ikke hatt merkbare tilbakefall av candida. Jeg tok en organic acids test jul 2020 og det var spor av candida men ingen åpenbar oppblomstring.

Jeg skrev en tilbakemelding av Michael Biamonte på yelp:

I am a 40 year old male from the country of Norway, living in the country of Norway. I have never met Michael Biamonte in person, only on telephone calls.

For more than 20 years I have had various health-issues, many related to food and sleep. When eating I have often felt terrible afterwards, with this problem slowly increasing in later years. My sleep problems also have gradually increased, until a point of burn-out in later years. Most days I did not function in work or else. MDs in Norway was of no help. I read lots of litterature myself and finally understood that candida might be the problem. So I researched the internet to find somebody to get help from, and found Dr Biamonte.

My approach to heath is that you have to take responsibility yourself, and be willing to learn, so that you yourself can take informed decisions. M Biamonte was from day 1 a “candida-guru” for me – he knows a lot about this. For one thing he could explain the source of my candida – mercury poisoning from my 6 mercury fillings. I ran with his supplement program – and it worked very well. My worst symptoms were gone after about 6 months, and after 1 year I was back working full time. I continued the full supplement program for another full year. Now, three years later, I do a reduced supplement program. I still stick vigorously to the eating program, and will probably do that for many years.

The first year I had monthly phone-conferences with Dr Biamonte. Every conference I had lots and lots of questions – and he could answer. I do not find him to be particularly expensive, rather the opposite. It costs about 100 dollars for our monthly 1/2 hour consultation, this is approximately what it costs to see a private MD here in Norway. The supplements costs about the same as supplements elsewhere – but there are many of them (around 5) so there is a cost to this. I think I payed a total of about 7200 dollars for the first year on this program (600 dollars/mnth, including shipping to Norway which is about 125 dollars/mnth), and the same for the second year. It was money well spent. At any point I could email questions, and get answers – for free. Other experts are much more expensive.

Dr Biamonte must be world-class when it comes to getting rid of candida. One thing that did not work for me was his urine-test – it never gave substantial results for me. It was more about the symptoms. He knows a lot about hair-testing, which was a great surprise. When it comes to other related topics – populating the gut with good bacteria, adrenal burn-out, parasites, he knows a lot, but not everything. So one should take the time and effort to informe oneself – this is valid in health, as in so many other aspects of life.

Today, three years later, I still have mild detoxification symptoms, and expect that to last for a few more years. I do not need the regular consultations anymore. I still get free email answers, and I still buy a reduced supplement program. Dr Biamonte knows a lot, and his approach is very sensible. I found phone-conferencing to work very well.
