She also developed severely increased acid reflux to the point of not being able to swallow food and tasting acid in her mouth from her probiotic which we were assured was of great quality(did not know about Candida yet). This was Mega Foods Mega Flora 20 billion cfu’s which is plant based. After four or five days on this she started to have all these problems, on two separate occasions. We weren’t sure why this would be? Is it die off?
It’s a good idea to establish a healthy diet and heal your gut a bit before you add in probiotics, I only say this because you are so unusually sick.
If your body can’t take healthy foods then it surely isn’t going to be able to do anything with a probiotic pill.
If you haven’t done it yet I would switch as many vitamins you can to powder, for better adsorption. You can get powdered vitamin C which will help your body fight the infection, (I’m guessing you’d need the buffered one), also powdered magnesium. I would surely stay away from all antifungals until you can eat more food.
Just a thought, I had a bad reaction to fish oil once, it turned out it was past the expiry date.

Why? It seems to me that if she’s that sick there would be no hesitation to get the advice of a 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th doctor, no matter what type of medicine they practice. Also, Candida is not recognized as a real disease for western tradition MD’s, it’s usually treated by a naturopath.
