I have finally realized that I have not had a candida symptom or die off reaction in some time. The gas and constipation that I have been experiencing is part of two things. One the leaky gut and two the lack of stomach acid. These both lead to poor digestion. This week I decided to look into hcl and how I should take it and when I get the doses right I feel perfectly fine. I misinterpreted gas as a candida symptom, which in my case it was not. It’s a sign of really poor digestion. I have been taking zypan on and off for a while but I wasn’t getting the results I wanted because I wasn’t using it consistently and properly. Now I use 1 tablet for raw salads and 3 tablets for cooked veggies, buckwheat and oatbran. I know there are a lot of people that have problems with gas so I recommend getting a hcl supplement and read up on how to train your stomach to produce acid properly. http://www.modernherbalist.com/betaine.html
The white coating on my tongue has improved as well. I started oil pulling 2 weeks ago with sun flower oil and I wasn’t getting results. I switched to coconut oil this Monday and I already see results. I always knew that coconut oil would do better but I was using so much coconut oil for eating that I didn’t want to spend more money buying more and more coconut oil. Sun flower oil is a lot cheaper but pretty ineffective. I’ll just use the sun flower oil as maintaince when the white coating disappears and for future pulling after candida.
Feeling very positive and good overall. Good luck to everyone
