Well, Flailing, just a glance at your post looks like you must be spending a fortune on supplements.
Personally I see several problems with your list of supplements; one is the Douglas Lab multiple vitamin which contains a terrible ratio of the eight B vitamins. Another is the fact that you’re overlapping the amounts of the same vitamins with different products. Look at the supplements in the Nature Made Stress B vitamins compared to the Douglas Lab multiple vitamins; so many of these vitamins are overlapping that you could be creating a huge need for various B vitamins in your body. This means that, when you finally go off of these vitamins, you could experience the symptoms of deficiencies in several different vitamins. For example, if you’re taking both of these every day, you’re ingesting 7334% of your daily requirement for thiamin (B1). Doesn’t this seem a little off to you?
At this point, you really shouldn’t be taking garlic pills containing allicin because it’s a powerful antibiotic that can destroy the bacteria that you’re trying to reestablish in the intestines. If you enjoy pure garlic, you could use a bit of this in your food, but you don’t need a supplement of it as well.
Another potential problem is the iron supplement. Pure iron such as this benefits the Candida, which is why most Candida sufferers eventually become deficient in iron. This is also why I recommend Apo-Lactoferrin in place of a pure iron supplement.
The information on your supplement reads; “Pur-Absorb is 100% natural and efficacious without additives, so you can really taste the iron.” This tells you that it’s pure iron without a substance to prevent the Candida from using it to their benefit.

What improvements have you seen, Flailing?
When you look over your supplement list, maybe try to keep in mind that more isn’t always better?
