    Hello,

    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?

    Thank-you

    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.
