So here I am. those are my symptoms. tell me what you think. and where I should start. (I have a full time job that would be hard for me to get time off to do the cleanse. So i’m stumped at where to start since my symptoms have become very, very severe lately.)Thank you 🙂
Hello, and welcome to the forum. Although you certainly aren’t new to Candida or so it sounds. All of your symptoms are classic Candida signs.
Before you start the diet or anything else, go ahead and purchase from a health or vitamin shop something called Molybdenum, this will help you through the die-off stage as well as protect your liver from the toxic waste released by the dying Candida which is what causes the die-off horrors. Start with 125- 250 mcg a day and work your way up to three doses, 250 mcg per day.
As far as the diet is concerned, you’ll want to leave out all of the following:
Avoid all dairy foods including butter for at least two full weeks. At that time try only Organic Plain (no sugar added) Greek Yogurt, a very small amount such as three teaspoons the first time. Pay attention to see if you receive any Candida reaction symptoms.
Leave out all white flour and wheat products in general including anything with gluten, this is bread, rolls, etc. No cereal or oatmeal.
Leave out red meat and port as long as you can.
No rice, corn or potatoes, eat fresh, green vegetables only.
“Try to purchase organic eggs and make them your main source of protein. Chicken and young fish such as sardines (less mercury if any) are alright on the diet, organic chicken if possible but not absolutely necessary.”
I advise against having meat or fish more than one time a day, stick to organic eggs as much as possible.
No soy products at all, none.
No sugar free gum or candy as it contains sugar alcohols.
Check your toothpaste for sugar alcohols which can feed Candida just the same as regular sugar can. Also, most table salts contain Dextrose which is glucose, a sugar capable of feeding the Candida. Himalayan sea salt which is the purest form of salt with many life-sustaining minerals still intact does not contain added ingredients.
The ingredients in Desert Essence Natural Tea Tree Oil Toothpaste should be alright for Candida sufferers. Amazon carries this brand.
You should know that you need to leave out all soda, diet or otherwise and carbonated drinks even carbonated water.
No fruit or fruit juice other than lemons, but if you have a juicer, you can juice green vegetables and drink this several times a day. Lemons and lemon juice are good detoxing agents, you can have these several times a day.
Leave canned foods out of your diet completely; eat only fresh foods from a local market.
No white distilled vinegar, you can use pure organic apple cider vinegar if you need it.
Drink all the water you can manage as it will help your body keep the toxins moving out. Take a glass to bed with you at night.
You don’t need to start on an antifungal yet, wait a few weeks on the diet to see how things go.
You’ll probably receive die-off reactions from the diet alone, so this is why you need to start the Molybdenum first.
Whatever product or supplement you read about as far as getting rid of the Candida is concerned, run it by the panel here first. Millions of dollars are wasted by consumers every year on products that do absolutely nothing for a Candida infestation.

Good luck, Able
