Hello, your questions are answered below.
Quote: in addition to the white coating on tongue, does candida also cause your mouth to be really dry? no matter how much water i drink, i am always thirty and thus always have lots of water nearby (i started the candida diet a week ago so water is my best friend).
Reply: Water really is your best friend during your infestation and treatment. Not only does it relieve the dryness when you’re drinking it, but it also helps to wash the Candida toxins from your body. Drink as much water as you can as this is part of your treatment. By the way, mouth dryness should actually be expected as part of a Candida overgrowth.
Quote: i guess i have a slightly white coating on my tongue but its not overall noticeable. is there anything that will help this because it is really annoying. i am a teacher and i have to talk all day long so a dry mouth is a big pain to me.
Reply: The white coating is also a common symptom of a Candida overgrowth and unfortunately, it’s usually one of the last symptoms to disappear.
Quote: i was also wondering how to tell when its time to reintroduce foods in the diet? when i start to feel better if i ever do. well its only been a week.
Reply: You shouldn’t start reintroducing new, Candida-friendly foods until all of your symptoms have disappeared for, at the very least a period of three months, longer will produce more of a benefit in the long run. Once you have the infestation, it becomes extremely easy for it to return once the symptoms have lessened or disappeared.
Quote: when i started the candida diet before (and failed miserably, during the die off i started to notice white spots in my stool. is this dead yeast cells? if so that means its working right?
Reply: Yes, that was probably the yeast cells, and yes, it means it was working. But remember that Candida are single-cell organisms which are able to multiply at an alarming rate. The human period from birth to reproductive maturity normally lasts about 25 years, whereas the same Candida period may be anywhere from 8 hours to three days. This means that at least a number of new generations of Candida are being produced in the body every three hours. That’s why we say that the strict diet and antifungals are incapable of destroying ‘all’ of the Candida cells. The only thing capable of doing that is changing the environment of the stomach, intestines, and colon so that the yeast are unable to change into the dangerous pathogen known as Candida albicans. The way this is done is explained in The Protocol on the forum.
