Just a quick reaction, (didn't read it in detail) - the Candizyme ingredient they have is also available in other brand products, (google that, to compare prices).
The Fish collagen they tout can be far less expensively copied by making real collagen-rich chicken broth from the bones and cartilage left from any chicken dinner, simply simmer for a few hours, remove bones, cool in fridge, skim off the oil, and voila. If made correctly, it will be stiff like jello, because it is rich in collagen. After skimming fat, reheat and drink like soup. I do this a lot, and it does feel soothing to my gut. But I can't comment on all the herbs they added to their fish collagen product.
Be aware that one of their products says it has FOS, and FOS feeds some types of candida strains. (controversy on the internet about that)
Interesting combination of essential oils in the candelim. Looks like it could cause a pretty good die-off/cause stress chemicals from the candida. Ive experimented with pine and frankincense. Pine can be very stimulating whereas frankencense can have a sedative effect. I think the website said something about the combination is effective in interupting the reproduction of candida? I cant remember....
Might be a product worth experimenting with. Hard to tell how much actual essential oil they put in the product. I would rather do undecenoic acid/coconut oil first than the essential oils. The essentail oils might be harder on our system/liver--- more irritating?
I have ordered 3 bottles of CandElim to London, U.K., and am currently in my first week of trying it.
I wrote to them first to ask them a few questions which they answered professionally and convincingly. I have tried Threelac and Fivelac probiotics but they only began to work at 6 a day, and that works out very expensive in the long run. I still use high dosage probiotics (currently Jarro, I might switch to Alaczen).
I am sceptical about CandElim, but I do believe in the power of essential oils, and I have a relatively open mind about homeopathy and energies and frequencies and all that "hippy" stuff :-) . I'm aware that quacks can potentially make a lot of money out of me and my open mind, and my husband only shook his head at the price of CandElim. My gut feeling tells me there's maybe a 30% chance that it works. However, I have completely lost trust in my doctor after spending many a half-day away from work to complete yet more tests for ever more complicated and dangerous sounding illnesses which all focus on one symptom only and all come back negative or inconclusive. A long course of Fluconazole (bought over the internet because the doctor wouldn't prescribe more than one) had no effect whatsoever, nil, zero. So my chances with traditional medicine are 0%.
It's too early to report on the progress of the CandElim treatment as my hopes and fears play tricks on my body and mind. I will keep you updated.
Hi. I am about to order CandElim/ Please, tell me if it helped? cause I tried everithing. The ingridients seem to be realy good. but there are no reviews about this product and the price is realy high. Looking rarward to hearing from you/ Anna/
So, a little update to my earlier post.
I've finished my first bottle, I'm not cured (yet?) but will update again in 4 weeks after the next bottle. The spit test has not markedly improved at this stage.
I can report some positives such as less acne, no brain fog, no sensitivity to coffee, fewer problems with airborne allergies (reduction in nasal spray and asthma inhaler is now possible), and also less vaginal thrush (although this is difficult to measure, but at least no full blown attacks in the past 4 weeks), and then some possible side effects such as constipation which may be part of die-off. All of this could of course be down to the continued use of the probiotics (just about used up the jarro ESP, will now switch to Alaczen as it seems more potent), but hey, I don't have the time to try one thing at the time, I want to get better :-)
Will keep you updated.
