From Library Journal
Candida-Related Complex (CRC) is a condition that occurs when Candida albicans, an organism found in all humans, multiplies out of control. Hundreds of possible symptoms may appear in many different combinations. Because of the confusing symptoms, CRC is difficult to diagnose, and because CRC is not yet fully understood, many medical professionals are skeptical about its existence and thus unlikely to diagnose and treat it. Winderlin, a health writer whose sister was diagnosed with CRC in 1992, and Sehnert, who has treated nearly 4000 CRC patients, have produced an excellent resource. Sehnert's introduction discusses some of the difficulties patients often have in convincing their doctors that they may have CRC (or that CRC even exists) and also gives an historical perspective on the discovery and slow acceptance of CRC as a valid diagnosis. The book is well organized, clearly and concisely written, and full of useful information. The writing style is neither too difficult for the lay reader to understand nor so simple that it insults the reader's intelligence. The lists of support groups and organizations, food and product sources, and (especially) physicians who treat CRC are particularly useful.

Editor reviews

This title was written by a health writer in collaboration with a medical doctor who has treated thousands of patients for 'Candida Related Complex'. Having been first published in 1996 this book is more upto date than some other well known titles on the subject. This gives it the advantage of covering newer developments such as specific diagnostic tests and treatment options.

The book covers the subject of candida and illness comprehensively, describing the history of the condition, what it is, how it occurs, risk factors and what can be done about it. Also included are listings of support groups and organizations, doctors who treat Candida related illnesses, and sources for foods and supplements useful for those on an anti-fungal diet and treatment regime.

Especially worth a mention is the section that includes the experiences and views of people who have personally experienced candida related illness. With an illness where there is no universally accepted medical advise, the experiences of others can be particularly insightful.

Candida-Related Complex: What Your Doctor Might Be Missing is certainly up there with the best on the subject of Candida/yeast related illness and I would certainly recommend it.
