Hey Brit, I am curious as to why you think that you have a candida infestation? Do you have other symptoms besides the white tongue. Your tongue didn’t look that bad to me, and usually yeast hurts a bit when it is on your tongue. You probably ought to try the oil pulling for a while and lay off the carbs and sugars in your diet, that is, if you don’t have other symptoms.
This is interesting because my tongue is similar to Brit’s; it does not hurt at all, though. However, I do have some other symptoms. I do oil pulling and clean my tongue with a separate toothbrush, but I notice if I stop, it just comes back. raster says it will not fully go away until I reduce the yeast in my body/small intestine. I stopped concentrating so much on oil pulling, because I figure, I could be drinking or cooking with all of that useful EVCO!
I don’t have any other symptoms other than the white tongue, no pain involved in the tongue either.
Serenedream basically answered your question Kag. I’d rather try to fix the problem inside of me rather than just put a bandaid on it by oil pulling. Or at least that’s what my research so far has led me to believe. Living on a strict diet for a few weeks or months really isn’t a huge deal either. Plus, unless I’m wrong, couldn’t this infestation eventually grow to the point where I do have other problems?
Able, are prebiotic foods and supplements okay to take throughout the entire diet? Should I start taking prebiotics?
