I follow a primal diet including full fat dairy. I'd describe my carb intake as low to moderate, eg a serve of fruit or two per day, small serve of tubers about every second day, occasional dark chocolate & wine. I've been travelling happily with good health and lots of activity since about March. Suddenly about a week ago, I was struck with mild heart burn (which I have only previously experienced during pregnancy) and thrush/candida (which I also haven't experienced since my non-primal pregnancy years ago). I'm not pregnant, by the way.
Are these two things linked? Why is this happening all of a sudden? What should I do next?

I remember Paul Jaminet mentioning at the WAPF convention that Low Carb diets could potentially be risky for those with past Candida issues... I don't follow his exact diet myself, but I find his information to be interesting and well thought out...
here's a link to a similar paleohacks question outlining a couple of people's n=1 experiences:
and a link to the the Jaminet's Perfect Health Diet Page if you'd like to learn more about their approach...
Good luck- hope this helps. :)
