This is the regimen I followed. I don't know if I should post it because some people are very well-educated on this stuff and I know I've probably made a few mistakes, but here it goes anyway. This is what healed me!
- Oil of Oregano
- Grapefruit Seed Extract
- Garlic Capsules/Garlic Cloves
extract, Cloves extract, Wormwood extract)
- Colloidal Silver
- Echinacea/Golden Seal/Pau D' Arco teas/supplements
- Grape Seed Extract
- Green/Red Tea (preferably Red as it does not contain caffeine, but has the same benefits as Green)
- Vitamin C/Vitamin E
- Any others you may find.
- Psyllium Husk
- Green Foods enzymes
- Stabilized Oxygen Molecules Liquid
- Shark Liver Oil
(Before getting started, I must say.. TAKE ALL OF YOUR VITAMINS! They are essential! Especially B Vitamins, take twice the amount you normally would. It is extremely beneficial in mood and energy loss due to Candida.)
Begin by adjusting your diet to an alkaline-sided one. THIS IS IMPORTANT! Candida can't survive in a alkalined enviroment. (MSM is a good supplement to take helping with alkalinism)
Here is a great chart that shows the alkaline/acid formations of most foods.
Eat only the foods on the alkaline side, you can include the fruits if you aren't sensitive to them. (I wasn't) Be sure to keep in mind the Candida-diet guidelines though! Don't go overboard. Granny Smith Apples are the best fruit to gorge yourself in, they contain little sugar. This is where the Green Foods enzymes come in! Take them with EVERYTHING you eat. It will help break down the food easier and destroy the walls of Candida cells. Chlorella has the same benefits, but I prefer taking that only twice a day. Chlorella helps flourish the healthy bacteria in probiotics in your system up to 4x!!
At the same time, you can begin killing the yeast with the above antifungals, using 2 at a time for a week, then alternating to 2 different ones. Do not let the yeast become immune to them! (
and Grapefruit Seed Extract are the strongest and most effective) I usually take the antifungals before I go to bed, to avoid extreme die-off during the day. You will experience die-off, but don't let it get you down. There are two ways to get rid of it. It all depends on how much time you have.
- For a fast fix from the die-off symptoms, try alka-seltzer or a tablespoon of baking soda mixed with a glass of water. You should feel sligh relief in less than an hour.
- For a beneficial to your health fix from the die-off symptoms, do a one-day Epsom Salt
cleanse. 2 cups of water/grapefruit juice (freshly squeezed!) with 2 tablespoons of Epsom Salt. Take 1/2 cup every hour. You will cleanse out your liver and bowels, which contains all the toxins from the antifungals (die-off causers!)
During this time, it is also beneficial to take a tablespoon of Bentonite
Clay + Psyllium Husk up to 4 times a day. The Bentonite literally soaks up the bacteria and infection in your body, and the Psyllium Husk scrubs the walls of your intestines at the same time, HIGHLY BENEFICIAL!
The antioxidants are basically to cancel out the toxins being released from the Candida overgrowth, they also help kill Candida and heal the gut.
PROBIOTICS + HEALING
After 2 months (or less, depending on your condition) of antifungals and BP + P.. begin taking Probiotics. (I recommend PRIMAL DEFENSE and/or Threelac) Home-made yogurt, kefir, or saurkraut are highly recommended. I also take Stabilized Oxygen Molecules with my probiotics, as it gives the probiotics more room to spread, because the oxygen opens passages that are normally not reachable. It also cleans the blood of any infection or toxic metals! (as does Chlorella)
ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PARTS OF RECOVERY: Begin taking the Colostrum and L-Glutamine (they both heal the gut, which were penetrated by the Candidas, causing Leaky Gut Syndrome, which is the cause of food allergies.) You can also take Shark Liver Oil, but it's not necessary, although helpful in the healing of the gut.
Magnesium deficiency is common for Candidians, causing that "Foggy" and depressed feeling. Take some! You'll feel relief in a few days. (I felt it with the Epsom Salt
After a month of treating yourself with probiotics and the gut-healers, and if you feel up to it.. venture out with the food. Try some potatoes or dairy products and see how you react. See how you handle the food you use to be sensitive to. START SLOWLY THOUGH! Don't come off the treatment with your first food being pizza or Taco Bell, as tempting as it may be! Slowly incorporate the sensitive foods in. This is where the Biotin comes in, be sure to take atleast 1,000 mcg of Biotin before trying the foods, so just incase you ARE sensitive to the foods still, Biotin will inhibit the growth of the Candida even further.
