I believe you can take it later during your treatment. It is hard to tell when you can re-add it safetely. Even taking calcium that may reverse the mutation to fungus, it is smart to stop magnesium. The experiments have been “in vitro” and quantity dependeble. I can not say for sure if an anticandida protocol will be effective taking magnesium, but I am repeting what I have read from some people. What is true candida uses it to switch to its invasive form. So, to be safe, don’t use it.
