Katy, congratulations on this, and I’m glad to hear it. Journalism?
I’m sorry I didn’t originally understand your major problem with taking the supplements, but this explains why your treatment hasn’t progressed as I expected it to. I was really stumped when I read your previous post, but as I said, this last post was a perfect explanation for the stall.
As far as your vitamin and mineral supplements are concerned; in the states our supplements are gauged by mg and mcg as well as IU, U, or Units. The A and D are measured in Units, so I really have no way of knowing how many units equal your mcg’s for these two.
As for the vitamin D, I would most definitely change it to D3 instead of regular D. You can take 5000 to 10,000 IU (International Units) if possible, although you may be receiving that already as far as I know. There are several research studies which suggest a vitamin D deficiency connected with Candida. The main reason for this is because most patients suffering from Candida albicans infestations who were tested exhibited a deficiency of vitamin D.
Concerning your “calcium (200mg) magnesium (75mg) zinc (3.75mg)” these would be quite low in the states. Our daily value or MDR here for those are calcium 1000 mg, magnesium 400 mg, and zinc around 15-20 mg.
A less expensive and excellent antifungal to add to your diet are rutabagas if they’re available in the UK. As I’ve written before, they are one of the most powerful natural antifungals on the market.
