Hello, Angor, welcome to the forum.

People do not normally need to stop diarrhea while they’re on the Candida diet, normally the problem is the opposite. This is why there is no post dedicated to stopping diarrhea but more than a few on correcting constipation.

If you should have diarrhea while on the diet or taking antifungals, it’s probably your body attempting to expel the dying or dead Candida and their toxins from your body, and in fact, this is exactly what you want to happen. You should never try to stop this process from taking place as the toxins would only make you sicker than otherwise.

Let us know as problems occur, and we’ll work through them with you.
