Hello, and welcome to the forum.

Reply: It’s good to remove as many toxins as possible from the body right from the beginning, but lots of people choose not to do this. You can still cure your infestation, the detox period normally just hastens the response time.
With my situation, (being that the continual reinfection with the parasite causes ongoing reinfection with the yeast) I think a more steady path for me is best, rather than radical measures to kill it all off at once.
Reply: Well you can’t kill it off with the diet anyway. And the process has to be taken slowly to prevent an overload of toxins for the liver and other organs which often happens anyway.
Quote: I’m taking pharmacuetical antifungals but no natural ones at this point. I’m taking (50 billion) probiotic daily. Am I on the right path?
Reply: I don’t know. A few questions answered might help;
Which probiotic are you taking? (brand name)
Which diet are you on, the one on the forum or the one on the site?
Just for your information, the natural antifungals work just as well as the doctor prescribed ones do, and in many cases, better. One of the very best is organic virgin coconut oil. It not only kills the Candida with its fatty acids, but it’s also a whole food which will benefit you in many other ways.
It would be helpful to know exactly what you’re eating that isn’t on the diet located on the link below.
All of the information you’ll probably need for the time being is located on the link below.
