All of this stuff eventually has an effect on one financially. You really have to decide what you can afford, what really works best for you, and where you can get the best deals. From time to time, my money runs out and I simply can't afford actually buying all this stuff, so I have developed a fall-back "poor boy" or "poor girl list of anti-Canddia anti-fungals that are either-home made or are products that can be bought in regular supermarkets, or in a less overpriced form from vendors that don't gouge the suffering.
Tony's "Poor Boy" Shopping list.
Raw, Crushed Garlic
Raw, crushed garlic contains Allicin, some candida patients claim that Allicin is even more powerful and effective than Nystatin. Allicin is the hot, burning, smelly, component to garlic's flavor, tast, and aroma. You have to take alot. between half and one whole bulb of garlic per day. I can personally handle 5-6 cloves crushed and mixed in virgin olive oil over a salad and that is the most raw garlic that I can handle at any one time. Allicin is extremely volatile and will evaporate, so you must eat the garlic cold and within 10 minutes of crushing or blending. Parsley is a good remedy for "garlic breath".
Consuming coconut oil has many benefits, but our main interest here is that it contains caprylic acid which is considered one of the better antifungals. One to two tablespoons per day will suffice. Often sold as a quality cooking oil. Get the purest, best, cold pressed quality you can find. I have heard of some Candida patients who use coconut oil as a sexua| lubricant and as a kind of prophylactic agent to prevent the passing of candida between partners. At present, I have no direct experience with the effectiveness of that particular application and usage.
Castor (bean) Oil
Castor (bean) Oil has been an old home remedy for generations. Castor (bean) oil contains Undecenoic acid which is considered one of the better anti-Candida anti-fungal agents. It is still a common and reasonably priced product and can be purchased from many stores as well as on the InterNet. One or two tablespoons per day will do the trick.
Drinking 3-4 cups of hot cinnamon teas is an excellent anti-fungal remedy
Home-made Probiotic Yoghurt
Home-made probiotic yoghurt takes a bit of work but it is definitely worth the effort. Add approx. one cup to a half pint of store bought "live active culture" pro-biotic yoghurt or open up and add 6-8 Pro-biotic Acidophilus & Bifidus capsules to a one liter/quart sealable container of whole milk or heavy cream that has been previously heated to 180F degrees for at least 3 minutes, and then cooled to 70F (room temperature). Seal the container and keep it at approx. 110-113F for at least 24-48 hours so that the probiotic bugs have a chance to "eat" as much of the sugars (lactose) in the cream or milk. I personally prefer using heavy cream (less lactose) and brewing my yoghurt for at least 48 hours. Half a cup of that kind of pro-biotic yoghurt or "Creme Bulgar" (sour-cream) ad day will give you the quamtum amount of probiotics that you need to repopulate your stomache and intestines with "friendly" flora. I make and consume two liters of the yummy stuff per week.
Thankfully psillium husks are cheap even in most healthfood stores. however psillium husk can also be bought in "regular" drugs stores for affordable prices. Make sure when buying psillium that it is pure psillium husk and doesn't contain sweetners, sugars, additives, wheat, flavors, etc...
