I’m new to this forum and so grateful to be apart
of as doctors are hopeless. I came across a post about a lady who took a spoonful of garlic with water. I found this to be the most exciting news ever because as cheap and quick it is …. it has worked wonders. I wont say im cured but definately feel my symptons have subsided immensely. Also the placing of the garlic you know where took that irritation away. You read everywhere about taking garlic and it being good for candida … but I was quick to dismiss as im young and thought that the bought items would get rid of this. Iv spent so much time money and emotional stress of this damn illness I wish I had of done the garlic thing in the
first place. Just wondering if the garlic works for you ? Wishing you all hope and wellness in this journey, I hope to read soon that thinfs are working out for you X
Im so glad you tried the garlic!
Candida overgrowth can be anywhere, most people on this forum have it in their gut, intestines, private-parts, or mouth. I have it in my throat and esophagus. Its a bugger to get rid of there 🙁
I have tried a few things, a few antifungals, a few supplements, and honestly the only thing that has helped in a measurable way is the garlic and the cinnamon.
The only problem with handling your overgrowth with natural stuff like this is that it only works when your consistent.
If you can be consistent with it, everyday, you wont need the funky products out there that have all kinds of mixed-reviews.
And keeping it natural helps your body to handle this itself, which is what you want it to do!
I used to take maybe 2-3 cloves of garlic a day, mixed in lunch and dinner (but raw), and cinnamon toast in the morning, or cinnamon sprinkled on grapefruit or green apples.
Im at the point now where I only have garlic a few times a week, because im already able to eat foods without reactions, so I know im almost cured 🙂
Have you tried eating cinnamon or coconut oil yet?
