    I realized I had candida a year and a half ago. It was then I started cutting sugars and other foods out of my diet. I still eat rice-nut chips, pork, beef, cheese, nuts, etc. However, in the next day or two I will adopt much of the protocol I’ve seen on these forums and Able’s website. I will start a detox, which will be followed by a strict stage 1 diet.

    I currently take the following antifungals: nystatin, oregano oil, and caprylic acid.
    I also take Inner-Eco Probiotics made from coconut kefir and Saccharomyces Boulardii.

    I have seen that with a detox protocol, it can be started with a fast, which I will do for 3-7 days. Then it should be followed by antifungals and eventually probiotics. They say that taking antifungals and probiotics while doing the detox would create too much die-off. Perhaps this advice is for people who are not currently taking antifungals and probiotics. My question is: Should I stop taking the antifungals and probiotics when starting the fast? Or should I continue them? I feel pretty terrible when I miss a dose of antifungals or probiotics, so I fear the same would happen if I stopped them for the fast and stage 1 diet.

    All advice and thoughts will be appreciated!

    My recommendation is not to take this many antifungals at the same time and not to do any fasting because the yeast numbers will likely remain at high levels. I haven’t heard of anyone fasting to cure their overgrowth and don’t think this will benefit you all that much.

    Here is an important post worth checking out:

    Yes, I plan on reducing my antifungal intake. However, I’m kind of scared this may increase the candida numbers, which will make me feel bad. Ultimately, I would like to try SF722 and virgin coconut oil. How would you recommend making the transition?
