Candida question

Jessie 107

Senior Member
Has anyone here had Candida and treated it successfully with just a change of diet?
I think I have this as I have yellowing of the fingernails and now the toenails.
My nails are very dry and brittle.
The other symptoms are constipation (though I am laying down flat all day) and I sometimes get itchy skin, hives.
I am wondering if my doctor could prescribe something for it, but I am sensitive to chemicals so I don't know.
I am severe and bedbound.

Any suggestions?
