Can anyone please tell me how to make it not feel like its on fire and swollen
What are you talking about? What is on fire and swollen?
have I ruined my chances of the antifungals (liq caprylic acid and GSE) working since Ive already been taking them??
Candida can adapt to many antifungals; it typically takes 2-8 weeks for candida to adapt to these antifungals. Eventually you will want to take other antifungals in their place, but I wouldn’t worry about that now. When you get up to 25 drops per day of any of the ones you are taking, and don’t experience much die-off, then at that point you should switch to something else.
Also worth noting is that the cleanse is completely optional. It’ll setup the environment in your body for a better recovery but it certainly won’t kill close to all of the candida and won’t remove all of the toxins. I didn’t do the cleanse myself.
How long will it take to get better? Your symptoms should improve within 1-4 months depending on how strictly you follow the diet, how big your overgrowth is, and how well your body heals. For most people it takes 6-18 months to fully recover from candida overgrowth.
