I’ve been fighting Candida for six months and been through five box Candida cleanses, two different high quality types. I have had no sugar for two years and eat Sweet Leaf Stevia or Xylitol when I have a craving, which is not very often. I have had to jump ahead in the protocol only because my doctor suspected either a kidney infection or stones. So she put me on a drug that killed bacteria and causes thrush! I had already been using probiotics, kefir and coconut oil; so I just continued them except through the cleanse. I upped the probiotics to counter the antibiotic. Learned on Monday that I didn’t have an infection or stones; so she prescribed a drug to counter what Friday’s drug did!
Question, when does one take all the supplements, probiotics and antifungals during the day? I start and end the day with my probiotics so that they have a better chance. Don’t know if this is good or indifferent but my stomach is empty. Antifungals (Nystatin and Ketoconazole along with coconut oil)I take the coconut oil with each meal. I’m up to 5 Tbsp since I already have been doing 3 Tbsp daily. The Nystatin is at breakfast and the Ketoconazole at dinner. Kefir cheese and flax oil for lunch.
It sounds a little like you should stay away from your doctor before she kills you with prescriptions.
The supplements can all be taken in one day, we all did it at one time. If you’re taking Nystatin, you don’t need to take another antifungal until you’ve finished the Nystatin, but do continue to take coconut oil. Personally, I’d stick with the Nystatin and drop the Ketoconozole, and when finished with the Nystatin, I’d choose natural antifungals such as eating Brussels sprouts and rutabaga and concentrate on getting more probiotics in the intestines.
