    I’ve been on this diet for almost 3 months now and I was taking quite a few antifungals at first, with no problem. I am now focusing on probiotics, kefir and yogurt (as well as veggies and vitamins).

    However, when I do have food with antifungals in them (for example any foods with coconut oil specifically) I can’t eat that food without my stomach getting upset. In fact the smell that I’ve come to recognize as coconut oil makes me nauseous and so I’ve been avoiding antifungals for the most part because I can’t seem to stomach them – is this normal?

    Sorry to be a pain, but I would really appreciate some feedback. I’m not taking any antifungals at this point (cooking with coconut oil, but that’s pretty much it).

    Surprised no one has responded to your post.
    Its hard to say really, I have found that the probiotics, kefir, etc in their own way produce die off or anti fungal effects, as you strict diet continues, it seems the yeast gets weaker and is more suseptable to the antifungals. there are alot of different anti fungals u can try instead of coconut oil and see if maybe another would work. You may be sensitive to it. Plus too much die off can cause a back up of toxins in your system and then any additional can make u feel horrible. That is my problem, I am infected systemically, and even the slightest antifungal food can be hell. I am having a terrible time trying to find something to help clean out the toxins.
    So you may just try to back off some, work on removing more toxins and continue on.

    Thanks for your reply Gtoblade.

    I’ve cut out the majority of antifungals that I was taking, but notice that even the smallest amount (just for flavouring) can set my stomach off. It seems the longer I’m on this diet, the less of the “OK” foods to eat I am able to tolerate…very weird. I’m going to run out of things to eat soon!

    I hope you are able to get a balance going for yourself soon as well 🙂
