Nystatin is one of the few antifungals that really works if you want to eliminate the infection.
Nystatin is a non-absorbed drug, so it will travel from mouth to anus without passing to our blood and detox organs. It keeps inside the intestines all the time. It is also one of the few drug that is FUNGICIDAL against candida albicans. It means KILLING the fungus. Most antifungals are FUNGISTATIC, only inhibit the growth.
Candida Albicans isn’t known to develop resistance against Nystatin to different MIC values. This is still a better NEW.
As you see, Nystatin is one of the few options that can give you your health back offering a permanent cure, no managing.
The Dr. who discover this disease, Dr. Orian Truss, knew that the fungal infection that causes CRC occur in the colon, and no in the small bowel. Since most antifungals are fungistatic and absorbed by the gut lining, they are useless and offer only temporary release when you follow a very strict diet. Dr. Truss knew it, and also knew that to get effective fungicidal drug concentration in the colon, the patients have to take HIGH amounts of Nystatin orally, as high as 8 000 000 of units a day ( 16 tablets )
long term, sometimes more than 6 months to reach a permanent cure. I mean a cure and a returning to a normal life.
He prescribed Nystatin in this way to many of his cases that were later documented as reaching a total cure.
After that, some other pioneer MDs decided to test Nystatin in a shorter route to the colon. They used Nystatin enemas that needs less concentration and target the fungal colonies directly. This is what I have done myself after finding how many cases that did this practice were cured in less than 3 months.
I hope this help you to understand about Nystatin and how it is one of the few hope to get a permanent cure.
