“You can start taking one antifungal of your choice about two weeks after you started the detox period, then exchange that one for another one unless you chose coconut oil. If so, you can simply add a second antifungal to the regimen. You would need to alternate the antifungals every two weeks, otherwise, the Candida albicans may adapt to one that’s used for an extended period.
Two weeks from the day you actually start the cleanse (whether you’re on it that long or not) or after you start the diet if you skip the cleanse, you could test a natural probiotic, specifically homemade kefir or homemade yogurt – if you start one of these at that time, you should definitely use homemade products only and not a commercially purchased of yogurt or kefir. No matter which you start first, eat only 2 or 3 bites the first and second day. Continue to increase the amount by one teaspoon every day until you reach the amount you wish to continue with. If at any time you receive strong die-off symptoms, reduce the amount you’re taking until the symptoms subside, then after a few days slowly start to increase the amount again.
Then two weeks later, or four weeks after starting the treatment (cleanse or diet) you can test commercially purchased organic non-sweetened Greek yogurt. Oikos and Fage are two excellent brands of organic Greek yogurt.
NOTE: Homemade kefir will be the most beneficial whole food supplement added throughout your treatment.
Five days after starting a homemade kefir or yogurt, you can start taking a probiotic capsule. Or, if you prefer not to eat the homemade kefir or yogurt, you can start the probiotic ten days after you’ve started the diet- but this is only providing you are taking Molybdenum Amino Acid Chelate.
If you order probiotics over the Internet be sure to request that your order be shipped in an optional ice pack for protection and when you receive them, they should all be kept in a refrigerator for storage.”
You can go ahead and start on them both now if you really wanted to; take the probiotics in the morning and evening, and take antifungals with meals. I personally take antifungals and probiotics with meals and it still works this way as well.
