Hello there, Katy.
So I see you’ve chosen two excellent antifungal products; pau d’arco tea and the coconut oil. From what I understand, aloe vera also has antifungal properties, although I never tried it during my treatment period. It also contains minerals which are needed to rebuild the immune system from the Candida attack.
The coconut oil is a wonderful choice as it contains fatty acids that will help to control the Candida. I would definitely take this every single day without alternating it with anything else. How much are you presently taking?
The enzymes in the Kyolic Candida Cleanse should be alright. If you decide to purchase additional digestive enzymes, be sure that the following three enzymes are not included; cellulase, hemicellulase, amylase. These three, like other enzymes, are capable of breaking down the enzymes in the foods that you eat. The problem with this is that these three will break some enzymes down into simple sugars which in turn can feed the Candida and keep it thriving. Most people do more harm than good by adding enzymes to their supplement list.
The best way to get the proper enzymes in the correct amount is by using something called “Grape Bitters.” This is a combination of herbs which enable the body to produce its own enzymes in the amounts that are needed for proper digestion.
The only ‘vital’ supplement that seems to be missing would be a good probiotic. Are you taking kefir? Kefir contains naturally-occurring bacteria and yeasts which can help to rebuild the body flora. Rebuilding the flora which was destroyed by the infestation can be done with a strong probiotic as well, and using both kefir and a probiotic obviously has double benefits.
It’s extremely difficult if not impossible to find a B-complex containing the correct ratio of B vitamins. If the B-complex you have contains 100% of a particular B vitamin and 200% or more of another, this is an incorrect ration and can cause more harm than good in the long run. By adding probiotics, we allow the good bacteria to grow and build a community of good bacteria called the flora. These communities or flora compete with the bad bacteria for food as well as living space. This of course makes it difficult for the harmful bacteria to grow and multiply and become an infestation. In addition, many of the probiotics can produce natural antibiotic substances that will actually attack harmful bacteria.
Literally, this is the road to getting rid of a Candida infestation.
The human body is designed to keep us healthy if we just eat the foods and take the supplements that will help instead of hinder this process.
I do hope your regimen works out well, Katy.
