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. Recommended for all consumer health collections.?Stacey Hathaway, Wright State Univ. Lib., Dayton, Ohio

To educate physicians and their clients alike about the modern epidemic of candida infections on account of antibiotic overuse and abuse, Sehnert and Winderlin have created a comprehensive manual describing candida-related complex (CRC), the candida organism, and candida's impact, especially on the immune system. They first establish that CRC is a real illness that will eventually be fully recognized by the general medical community, but many doctors have not been trained to detect it. They point out that the complex, caused by a normally harmless yeast organism, produces symptoms that vary from individual to individual and include fatigue, food intolerances, depression, anxiety, headaches, and memory impairment. A separate section on treatment covers the basics of recovery: a limited carbohydrate diet, prescribed antifungal medications, probiotics (i.e., "friendly" bacteria), and substances that naturally boost the immune system, such as vitamins A, C, and E. Appendixes list suggested readings, support groups, physicians treating CRC, and more. Whitney Scott
