I am very certain that I have a severe case of candida overgrowth. It started about two and a half months ago, when I developed a rash on my face which spread and cause my face to swell up, making me look like a boxer. I immediately went on a juice fast lasting about a week and a half, and it cleared up my face somewhat (although my arms, legs, hands, neck, and ears all broke out with severe eczema). I then went to see a “skin specialist” who told me to take some prednizone, so, much to my shame, I did. It cleared up my skin issues and all was well for the Chrismas holidays. However, slowly over the course of the next week, the rash began to develop again, so I went on another juice fast (Granny smith apples) for about 10 days, which cleared everything up again.
When I started eating once again after that, it took only a few days before my face started to tingle whenever I ate something. So, as to avoid not missing any more days of work, I went on a four day fast, which cleared everything up. After that, I figured out that I must have a candida issue and began the diet three weeks ago.
I have been having some trouble, though, because it seems like all I can eat is salad and eggs. Everytime I try something new, my face begans to burn. I’m talking about things like spaghetti squash, the coconut bread, tahini, and anything else I try from the recipe sections. It is troubling to me.
This past week I have been getting a permanent burning sensation on my face that is not going away, even though I have been eating “Candida Diet” for three weeks now. I just finished a salad for supper, which caused my face to increase it’s burning almost immediately after I finished. I realize that something is not right.
My main question is this: could this be candida die-off? Or does this sound like more of a “yeast is still advancing” problem. I’m quite distressed because if I can’t even eat a salad without my face burning, then what can I eat?
I should mention one thing that I’m a bit concerned over, and maybe this is the cause of all these extra issues I’m having. I’ve been taking coconut oil for the last few weeks as an anti-fungal, and discovered that I really like the taste and texture of it. This was all before I read about slowly increasing your dosage of coconut oil, and I started off by taking the equivalent of about 18-20 teaspoons of the stuff everyday. It was only later that I learned about die-off destroying your liver and other organs. I’m worried I’ve done some irreparable harm to my liver from the massive amounts of anti-fungal that I used.
Has anyone had this experience before? Is it normal for die-off related symptoms to appear as soon as you eat anything? Should I go on another fast to clear everything up and start over again?

It’s really impossible to say for certain without more information about your specific situation. But considering the other information you’ve supplied, my guess is die-off.

This would certainly explain the severe die-off symptoms.

Have you now read enough to be aware of Molybdenum and the role it plays in die-off?
Has anyone had this experience before?
A lot of people have to one degree or another; some to the point of passing out.
Is it normal for die-off related symptoms to appear as soon as you eat anything?
Just about anything is possible with a Candida infestation, so maybe it isn’t normal, but that doesn’t mean it can’t happen.
Should I go on another fast to clear everything up and start over again?
A fast won’t help if it’s die-off. Remaining on the diet but removing any antifungal until you’ve been on Molybdenum for three days would be a good thing to do.
Read this post if you haven’t already done so.
