1. How does one tell if it’s DIE OFF symptoms or just typical infestation symptoms? I’ve been pretty bad for so long that I can’t tell if what I’m going through the last few days is DIE OFF or just a flare up. I stopped (to my best ability) sugars and starches but my Neurologist put me on Lexapro (5mg/day) and Klonopin (.25mg/day) to help with the severe anxiety I was having. My symptoms are mainly dizziness, nausea, fogginess, and shaky eyes (feels like my eyes have vibrators hooked up to them). It’s not TRUE nystagmus like one would get during an ENG test but more like they’re jumping and not both focusing on the same object.
2. I have incorporated a probiotic and coconut oil to my cooking…usually kale and some chicken in coconut oil cooked a bit. I’m still looking for an antifungal protocol to follow and if anyone has a program that they followed that worked, I’d be glad to hear it.
I just read articles stating that natural anti-fungals (garlic, coconut, etc) had an even greater effect on candida than Rx anti-fungals. I’ll try and find the link. But this leads me to believe I can fight it naturally.
3. Anyone else have vestibular issues with candida? Dizziness, ear fullness/moistness, lightheadedness, motion sickness, nystagmus, etc?
4. I used to smoke a pack a day. i have since REALLY cut down to maybe 2 cigarettes a day and noticed that smoking really impacts my symptoms. Its a sign to stop most likely but is there any link to cigarettes actually increasing fungus growth?
