That’s what I figured. My doctor says I shouldn’t be concerned and it is not a big issue, but it is something I am going to resolve.
Raster, what would your recommendation be for me to get through this?
Would it be a Cleanse, followed by following “The Stricter Candida Diet” which I private message Able to obtain? From what I’ve been reading and looking at on the forum, this seems to be what I am going to do.
I did a search on oil pulling. Correct me if I’m wrong. Oil pulling with coconut oil, because it has antifungal properties, will fight off overgrowth of yeast in my mouth. More of a temporary fix, rather than actually reducing the candida numbers internally. Is oil pulling something I can do my entire cleanse, and diet?
For a few weeks, I gargled salt water, and it helped a little. To me oil pullling is doing the same thing, but in general, would you say it is more effective than salt water?
Also, on the ALLOWED FOODS: Candida Diet page, there is writing in red lettering that talks about how shifting back to the old diet will likely cause another candida infestation, perhaps an even more serious infestation. When I first noticed my white tongue, I had recently finished 10 days of antibiotics as well as eating high sugar foods for a few days. (Bad timing. I was eating high sugar foods, donuts, and had a few beers. Pretend I go through a cleanse and follow the diet spot on, if I start to reintroduce foods and drinks, for example have 4 or 5 beer, is my tongue going to become white again?
As I was writing this, my mom brought home some CandiGone she got at the health store. Any comments about CandiGone, or if I should use it during my cleanse or diet? Apparantly the lady at the health store had concerns about the cleanse described on the website because it lacks protein. Comments?
Thanks for the help!
