Yes, that definitely sounds like die-off symptoms. A product by the name of Molybdenum Amino Acid Chelate is the best remedy for die-off symptoms and for removing the toxins before they can harm your body. Often it’s difficult however depending on your location. The link below leads to more information on this.
For die-off symptoms the following can be helpful; Ecklonia cava is an extract which is derived from sea weed. It’s a potent anti-oxidant which in studies exhibits a stronger effect than other antioxidants. In addition to this, alpha lipoic acid (ALA), n-acetyl cysteine (NAC), and glutathione can help. Of course, that’s providing you’re able to obtain any of these.
A few things to do every day to help remove the die-off toxins are:
Add Epsom Salts to your bath water while soaking, and be sure to keep the water very hot during the entire soak.
I’m sure you can obtain some detox teas; below is a link leading to information on some of the best teas for detoxing. If you can, obtain a few of these and drink as many cups as you can manage during the day to help detox the aldehydes.
Remember that the Candida toxins are not just bothersome when they’re causing die-off symptoms; they’re also potentially dangerous to your body in general, so it’s imperative that you do everything possible to remove them from your body.
As you see, the objective is to keep them moving out of your body in whatever way possible. Drink a LOT of water during the die-off period, even more than during the diet, and don’t allow yourself to become constipated.
