When you start your Candida treatment you may experience a worsening in your symptoms. Don’t worry – this is actually a sign that the Candida yeast cells are being killed in a reaction named Candida Die-Off. Candidate (by Native Remedies) is a product that can support you through this time by helping your liver remove toxins more quickly from your body.
You can take Candidate throughout your treatment for Candida overgrowth. Its a natural, herbal remedy that balances your digestive system, supports your immune system, and helps your liver to do its job of expelling toxins. Even before Candida Die-Off, the Candida yeast is constantly releasing its toxins into the bloodstream, so you can start taking Candidate right away to reduce your Candida symptoms.
You can buy Candidate at the Candida Store. Here is the link to the Candidate page.
How does Candidate help with Candida?
Candidate is a 100% herbal solution, made using three different herbs that have been produced using Native Remedies’ Full Spectrum approach.
The essential oil of lemon grass is obtained from the freshly cut and dried leaves of the plant. It promotes a healthy balance of ‘good’ bacteria in your body, which will help to slow and reduce the Candida overgrowth in your gut.
This herb promotes the elimination of Candida toxins from your body. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, treats constipation and can help prevent damage to your cells.
Pau D’Arco Bark
Pau d’Arco’s helps with Candida in a couple of ways. Firstly the herb helps to loosen the bowels, washing out old fecal matter and some of the Candida yeast. Secondly, it is a powerful antifungal that will actually inhibit the growth of Candida.
Candidate also contains a very small amount of ethanol, which sometimes leads to some confusion. Although any type of alcohol is generally a bad thing when you are suffering from Candida, tiny amounts such as this should not concern you. If taken as instructed, the alcohol content in Candidate is much less than 1%. The ethanol is there as a preservative to ensure full potency of the herbs used in the formulation, and the positive effects from these herbs will far outweigh any possible side effects from the residual alcohol.
What happens during Candida Die-Off?
When you start a course of antifungals or probiotics, you may begin to experience flu-like symptoms like fatigue, headaches and brain fog. Often these symptoms will be worse than the ones you’ve been experiencing during your Candida infestation itself. Many Candida sufferers are confused when they reach this point, and some actually stop their treatment and go back on to sugary foods.
These symptoms are of course the result of Candida Die-Off, a reaction that occurs when yeast cells are rapidly killed in your body. The antifungals and probiotics are destroying the Candida cells, which in turn are releasing large quantities of their toxins into your bloodstream. When the Candida yeast is killed it can actually release up to 79 different toxins, including Ethanol and Acetaldehyde. If your liver can’t act fast enough to remove them, these become responsible for a wide range of Die-Off symptoms. Products like Candidate, Milk Thistle and Molybdenum help your liver to expel these toxins, making the side effects of Die-Off much more bearable.
