    I’ve read that Diflucan is good for systemic candida – when it gets beyond your gut/intestines and into your blood.

    Do all of the natural antifungals primarily target candida in the gut/intestines? Do any of them work for candida outside of the gut/intestines?

    If you have systematic candida then you’ll be fighting for your life in the hospital, so don’t think you have it…

    I thought I had systemic candida b/c I have a leaky gut which allowed it to get into my bloodstream and cause sinus issues, etc. Is that not true? Will taking natural antifungals that target candida within the gut/intestines help with these symptoms as compared to taking a drug like Diflucan that gets into the bloodstream?

    Leaky gut and systematic candida are not the same thing…

    What you have is called candida related complex (CRC). Diflucan may or may not work, it doesn’t work for everyone. There is one more antifungal drug called nystatin that is more popular. These are the only western medicines that may work.

    I’m taking diflucan and nystatin but my prescriptions are about to end (dr. would only prescribe diflucan for 2 weeks and nystatin for 1 month). Do any of the natural antifungals work as good for CRC?

    Yes, there are a variety that work pretty good. The ones that disrupt biofilms the best are fatty acids. There are a variety of fatty acids, but the most popular include SF722, fermented cod liver oil, coconut oil, and royal jelly.

    The regular oils work well for destroying candida but not in the long term because candida will adapt to them.

    I think I’d add Monolaurin and Lauricidin to that list, both are concentrated derivatives of coconut oil and more powerful than coconut oil and are very good anti virals, as is oil of oregano.
