Hello, Katy. So sorry it’s taken me two days to get back to the forum.
I can’t blame you for not being able to tolerate the raw garlic. Can you eat it if it’s cooked in yur food? If so, eat as much as you can that way. In addition, since you’re not ingesting the raw garlic, continue to take the garlic pills. The next time you purchase the pills, read the lable and be sure that it says “Allicin” or perhaps “Allicin Rich” on the lable. This is the ingredient that you want because it’s the weapon that kills the Candida. One good brand is something called Allirich, Amazon carries this brand.
The oil of oregano is the best antifungal, but if you can’t get it, you just cant. Are you able to order it from online? If you can’t, I would definitely stay with the garlic pills, at least one after each meal and also the coconut oil.
The extra virgin coconut oil is great, slowly work your way up to 14-16 tablespoons a day if you can manage that (yes, I know that’s a lot of oil to swallow).
I know that list I wrote was an awful lot to take in at once, but I didn’t expect you to do that. You can make a copy of the list, and work down it slowly until you have it set in your mind as far as what you’re doing.
If I was asked to pick out just one item from the list I made, it would have to be taking probiotics as well as feeding the flora (community of bacteria) that it’s creating. The plain organic Greek yogurt as well as kefir will do a good job of this. Plus, eat all the green, fiber-rich vegetables you want to eat. These will help to feed the flora also which in turn will aid your body in ridding itself of the Candida infestation.
Good luck, Able
