which cleanses has he been doing?
It puzzles me that people have candidiasis for years. Not to brag but I brought mine into balance in just three months of a no-junk, no-sugar, no-fruit diet. All I did was supplement with liver-supporting herbs and probiotics and did lots of bowel management, including P&B shakes, enemas and colonics.
Has he done any bowel management at all? That is always the first thing you should do, while changing your diet. Next is drinking plenty of water and cutting out any other drinks - no soda, no coffee, not even decaf. Just herbal tea and water.
Once the bowels are clean, then do a liver flush. I don't recommend the Master-Cleanse
for candida, it's too much maple syrup. I never had more than one tbls of maple syrup or brown rice syrup when I was on my candida diet.
The pain and swelling is not indicative of a healing crisis, they are indicative of sickness, period. He's got to cleanse his liver, and in such a way that the bile released doesn't simply re-circulate. That's the problem with the way people do the Liver Flush
- they leave it up to the Epsom Salts
to take the bile out of their system, and that's just not enough. Bile is only taken out of circulation with fiber, colonics
So if he's been doing lots of liver flushes, have him stop, and use liver-supporting herbs instead, such as bupluerum, chinese gentien, milk thistle, etc. He needs to take a full spectrum of herbs, not just one or two, and in addition, B vitamins, esp. folic acid and niacin, and MSM. Coqe10 would be good too. Get an enema bucket setup so he can do deep cleansing - enema bags just clean out about 1/3 of the colon. Or get a series of colonics, whatever is easiest.
