I would use Lugol's Iodine
or iodoral in dosages of at least 50 mgs per day(split dosages of 2 drops 5% LI four times a day). I now use LI at these dosages for preventative maintenance. If you use this higher dose LI protocol you should make sure to follow the guidelines shown here:
Been using LI like this for about 8 years and it was a major part of my own successful protocol I used against systemic candida which comprised the following protocol strategy:
* Avoid using Antibiotics
are one of the top causes of dysbiosis in the human body -- a malady and reason that is well known to encourage the persistence and spread of candida as well as aiding in and supporting the spread of other numerous pathogen problems throughout the body.58
* Directly attacking, killing and removing candida and all other involved pathogens(co-infections) in the body. These anti-pathogen protocols should be selected and employed to act as wide-acting pathogen killers -- that can act to kill fungus, bacteria, viruses and mycoplasma quickly -- while at the same time having the ability to act throughout all regions of the body (not just acting in the intestines) for a fuller effect in order to kill and eradicate both the fungal and yeast forms of candida as well as to efficiently kill and remove all the other associated pathogens that may also be involved.
* Removal of heavy metals, halides and other poisons that have accumulated in the body over time. Apart from greatly depressing and weakening the immune system and liver, heavy metals are a well known part of the building material that candida uses to construct biofilms -- so heavy metals removal from the body will also help to expose candida and other pathogens by promoting a reduction in biofilm formation that would normally help to protect and hide various pathogens -- including candida -- from the body's immune system.
* Using other protocols with specific surfactant or digestive properties on a daily basis which effectively act to continually disrupt, dissolve and dispel the biofilms in which candida and other pathogens can reside, hide and protect themselves. By doing this, both the candida and other involved pathogens will be completely flushed out and naked with nowhere to hide. Once completely de-cloaked and exposed in this manner, the candida and pathogen attack remedies can then be more effectively and actively employed to kill and remove the offending candida and other pathogens more easily, efficiently and quickly.
* Alkalizing the body on a daily basis to counteract and neutralize the body acidity caused by anaerobic pathogens -- including candida, which also helps to remove toxins and which helps to resolve malabsorption issues in the body. Alkalizing also disrupts biofilms, helps to kill candida, oxygenates the body cells and counteracts and neutralizes acidosis and does a myriad other beneficial jobs besides.
* Specifically targeting, neutralizing and removing candida mycotoxins and aflotoxins in the body on a daily basis within the protocol. Thisrduces the Herx or die of reaction. In the 1980s Orion Truss identified 79 mycotoxins as toxic dangerous waste products from candida in his book Candida: The Missing Diagnosis. Many of these dangerous candida mycotoxins are also carcinogenic, whose accumulated presence in the human body is extremely debilitating for the candida sufferer both mentally and physically and which, as a consequence, tends to greatly lower the immune system's capabilities and effectiveness.9
* Strongly supporting the nutritional and excretory pathways of the body – viz the intestines, liver and kidneys, to help in assisting and reducing the inevitable detox and candida die-off or Herxheimer effects so that the blood is quickly purified and healthy again. This is why a simple but wide ranging liver support protocol should also be included in the main candida protocol.
* Supporting and strengthening the immune system and body terrain with vitamin and mineral nutrients that are always lacking in the Western processed food diet. Candida hates a healthy alkaline body with a fully functioning and strong immune system.
* Strictly following an Anti-Candida diet.
So from above and in a nutshell, any anti-candida protocol that you adopt and follow must therefore comprise and fulfill the following strategy criteria to successfully and completely eradicate systemic candida and all other associated pathogenic co-infections:
Anti-Candida and Anti-Pathogen Protocols
Essential Detox Protocols
Liver Support Protocols
Vitamin and Mineral Support (Immune System Support)
The Anti-Candida Diet
