    I have been following the candida diet for 6 weeks and I have been seeing a naturopath and taking supplements he has prescribed. I did not experience any die off symptoms during the first few weeks of my diet, although now I am feeling some of the symptoms such as headache, stomach cramping, skin irritations and itchiness, headache and sore muscles. My previous candida symptoms are almost gone, but now I have these new symptoms. I have been very strict on the candida diet and I have lost 15 pounds in 6 weeks as well. Has anyone else experienced die off this late in the diet???

    Yes, die-off can last for many months, especially if you eat any foods that feed the Candida.
    Which diet are you on, the one on the website or one that the doctor gave you? Also, what are the supplements he has you taking?

    If you are following the website’s diet, this is not very strict and could be prolonging the time when you experience die-off.

    I am following the diet the doctor gave me. I am currently taking berberine and a product called Lipo-plus which includes a number of supplements including choline, inositol, dl-methionine, dandelion root, silybum seed, milk thistle, and a little bit of others.

    If you’ll take the time to list the foods that are on your diet, we’ll have a look at them as that may be part of your problem. You should have experienced die-off symptoms long before two weeks were up. The other thing that I know is a big part of your problem is the berberine you’re taking. Do you know why the doctor put you on this, other than the fact that he isn’t very smart when it comes to a Candida overgrowth?

    Not only does berberine cause potassium to be depleted from your body, but it also damages the intestinal lining and destroys the beneficial flora in the intestines. Building the flora is what will lead to your ultimate cure, but you’ll never accomplish that as long as your putting berberine in there. Sounds a little like the doc wants to keep you coming back indefinitely.

    Hmmm..that’s interesting. The research I did also supports berberine for candida. Can you tell me more about the negative effects of berberine and candida?

    I should also mention I take a multi-probiotic ..25 billion active cells a day.

    As you read these reports, keep in mind that, as I’ve mentioned before, you can’t stop a Candida infestation from growing without an ample supply of beneficial flora in the intestines.

    On the surface, berberine may look like just another strong antifungal, which is exactly what it is. However, looking into the research on berberine, you begin to see the negative effects of this herb. Below are some of the studies to which I am referring.

    So are you eating rice kritter? What about fruits, potatoes, corn? These all could set back your treatment and the time when you experience die-off because all of these items are beneficial for candida and not fighting it.

    I don’t know much about berberine but I would consider it as a last resort antifungal myself.

    I am eating a couple of servings of brown organic rice per week…no potatoes, no corn, and I just started eating a couple of low sugar fruits per week. I must say that I am feeling a whole lot better than I did 6 weeks ago. My candida symptoms were mostly nausea and vomiting, stomach upset with severe pain at the top of my stomach and lots of constipation and diarrhea. These symptoms have subsided to a point to where I can at least function in life.
