Too much exercise can really run the body down too much while during the die-off phase, so consider reducing or eliminating it for a period of time to get your legs underneath you.
I would strictly follow the allowed foods list and examine everything in your diet. What is your current diet?
Eventually you will want a stronger probiotic, something between 12.5-70 billion in potency. This will be the single most important thing you will for your recovery.
One great way to reduce die-off symptoms is to do a sauna, hot tub, steam room, or even hot bath to release those toxins through the bodies largest organ, the skin. You can do this up to 6 days a week.
Come up with a plan for your diet where you rotate your foods, if possible. For example, alternate between seafood, chicken, lamb, buffalo, etc. No beef or pork. Alternate between red/black rice, quinoa, and buckwheat as side dishes. These are just examples.
You do not have to do the cleanse/detox. It only creates a better environment for your recovery but isn’t completely necessary.
Eventually, you will want to add more antifungals, but I wouldn’t worry about this right now. This will cause more die-off symptoms and I would consider doing this in a few weeks.
It is normal to have a wide range of symptoms during the die-off stage and it can take as long as 6-18 months to fully recover from candida depending on how ill you are with the candida. In a few weeks to few months, you will start to feel quite a bit better as long as you follow the diet.
