    So basically i figured i might have candida overgrowth because of my dental retainer. I recently realized it was pretty digusting and upon researching found that dental retainers can cause Candida overgrowth.

    So i immiediately stopped wearing my retainer and after the 3rd day i started feeling slightly sick. On the fourth day i started my strict diet with anti fungals and probiotics and extremely healthy diet.

    Yesterday i started noticing i was feeling more sick, and today i was feeling slightly more sick although i feel a little better than i did this morning, now. Could this be Candida die off, or did i just happen to get sick at the exact same time? And how long does it take for the diet to work?

    Hi, Rizian – do you have any reason to suspect that dental retainers cause candidiasis? I’ve read before that false teeth can cause oral thrush, but that’s a leap away from a systemic candida infection. But I’m interested in this because I have been using Invisaline for three years, and a retainer for 6 months.

    What are your symptoms? If you start to feel awful its typically from die-off; a healthy person should not experience any symptoms when starting the diet plus probiotics and antifungals.

    It takes as long as 6-18 months to fully recover from candida overgrowth if you have it. Some people can recover more quickly if they have a light overgrowth.

    I’d be surprised if anyone in any state of health didn’t feel like crap, especially if they attempted the cleanse.

    Well, built up bacteria on dental retainers can cause harm to the body including candida overgrowth. I have had my retainer for about 12 years now, and you can see the build up of bacteria and plaque on it. I know this is a stretch but i’ve seen several specialists who have been unable to help my fairly serious health issues. And i know its definately not systemic candida, because that is life threatening and you’d definately be in the hospital if you had that.

    I know that most medical doctors say that candida overgrowth isn’t a real diagnosis, but at this point i’m willing to try anything.

    these are my symptoms

    – irregular heart beat and heart palpitations
    – infrequent / frequent / soft and pale bowel movements ( Ocassionaly i have found what appears to be a white fungal material on my stool)
    – extreme fatigue, oversleeping, not able to sleep properly
    – re-ocurring rash on my chest
    – dry skin, red patches and extremely dry skin on scalp
    – mental fog
    – white flashes of light in my peripheral vision occassionaly
    – a full body mri has shown lesions on my brain, but they have been inconclusive
    – hypoglycemic attacks on a daily basis, usually after eating.

    I am a 25 year old male, who works out regularly. I’m 6’1, 170 lbs, with about 6-8% body fat ( extremely healthy individual). I already ate healthy but always had fruit or some sort of sugar with my food because my blood sugar drops dangerously low otherwise. I have been monitoring it closely while on the diet.
