    Hello, I am suffering from a fungal candida infection that causes ear infection itchy nose and food allergy to me. The normal conventional medication has failed to address this issue as I have had this problem for almost 15 years without realizing it until I did test for fungal molds and found out that I have 12 different fungal spurs in my body which has grown out of hand. I want to know if you have medication to address this issue.

    In Ayurveda, a lot of such problems can be interconnected and depend a lot on your body constitution. I would recommend you to book a consultation, Instead of recommending random products and trying them in vain.
