I’m not Raster, but I’ll answer this for you anyway; the coating on your tongue does look very mild, and if this is the only symptom you have, then it could be just a mild yeast problem.
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 sent the links to you in a private message. Personally, I don’t think a cleanse is necessary, especially in your case. It could be that simply going on the diet I sent you and using an antifungal for about ten days, then starting a good probiotic may be all you need to clear this up. It’s certain worth a try.
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?
You can do oil-pulling throughout the diet, but as I’ve stated, I don’t think the cleanse is necessary, of course if you want to do a cleanse, go ahead. As long as you’re not already underweight, the cleanse probably won’t bother you other than making you weak, which may be a problem for you. The coconut oil kills the Candida in your intestines if you take it by mouth.
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?
A lot more effective, it’s a natural antifungal. Since you already have the coconut oil, you could use that as your antifungal and not bother with purchasing another one. And you need to take coconut oil by the teaspoonful. The doses are in the protocol.
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?
No one can successfully predict this for you, there are far too many varieancies depending on each individual.
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?
I sent you a link to another cleanse, you should read that information if you’re still interested in doing a cleanse.
The CandiGone problebly won’t hurt anything, and since you ‘appear’ to have a mild case of yeast at the most, it may help. You can use the CandiGone along with the diet I sent.
