This is my secnod go around on Stage 1 because I had to have an antibiotic when I was 5 weeks in the last time :/ I used both garlic capsules and just straight up coconut oil by the teaspoonful (I know, not appetizing). I’m expecting a baby and wanted to first try antifungals that were 100% approved for pregnancy. I wasn’t sure if the coconut oil and garlic were doing anything, though. Hard to say what was from the diet and what was from the antifungals, you know? By Week 5, I was feeling really awesome. A noticeable difference! Then… I needed the antibiotic 🙁
Well, after the antibiotic, I started from square one with the diet but did not go back on the antifungals right away. I waited 2.5-3 weeks to let the strict diet take care of some of the yeast that had *obviously* had a heyday with the antibiotic meds. So, at the end of last week, I started just with the garlic capsules – 1 in the morning and 1 at night. I had die off on Sunday and Monday! I was really surprised. Not sure why I was surprised, but I was 😉 So, all this to say, I think the garlic capsules are actually doing something good! It isn’t just the diet after all.
I’ll wait another week and a half or so and then I’ll add in the coconut oil again. I took a rounded teaspoon about 3x per day last time.
Hope this helps!
