    I’m so happy I just had to share it with others who will appreciate it.

    After a round of antibiotics a couple years ago for a lung infection, I’ve had recurring yeast problems, usually in the form of vaginal infections. It got so bad that nothing was working, not even the Monistat creams. I tried everything, short of going to the doctor with this embarrassing problem. I was certain I could cure this on my own. Well, the worse it got the more research I did on Candida. I realized it not only causes horrible vaginal infections, but horrible other symptoms as well! I could check off just about every single one of the Candida symptoms. That really raised an eyebrow. After more research, I learned yeast feeds on sugar. BINGO. I eat like crap, especially lots of sugars and carbs. And when my symptoms are really bad, it’s usually after a few days of eating an overload of sugary junk food and sweetened beverages. I decided the yeast has to go, as I cannot deal with it any longer. I am following my own program, which immediately included cutting back on the sugar drastically. I’m also trying a homeopathic liquid called AquaFlora, which was overpriced and I didn’t give it high hopes, but it had good reviews on Amazon. I’m also taking YeastCleans, a blend of tea tree oil and caprylic acid in pill form, as well as some high potency probiotics, and even eating extra yogurt on top of that. Well, I started this all on Sunday night. It’s only Tuesday night, and while I’ve noticed a decrease in my itching “down there,” I’ve suddenly started feeling like crap. Flu-like, achy, and just crappy. I thought, Oh great, I’m coming down with the flu. After doing more research, I think what I’m experiencing is Candida die-off. The more I read the more it made sense, and it fits perfectly with what I’m experiencing. I think my massive “no holds barred” approach to kill the yeast is working…. a little too well. I believe the yeast is dying off at a rapid weight. I started downing lots of extra water to help my liver and organs deal with the onslaught. I think I’ll do the probiotic every other day if it gets worse, but I’m just so happy my approach is working. Even just changing my diet has made a huge difference in the way I feel, and it’s only been two days! Unreal how much chaos candida causes in the body. I had no idea.

    Thanks for listening…. I’m just so happy something is finally WORKING!

    Well be sure to make a detox plan, because you can damage your liver and kidneys:

    If you want diagnosis, I would check out the candia5 test.

    Definitely. I am drinking tons and tons of water to help flush it out. I’m going to cut back on the probiotic and yogurt a bit. I certainly don’t want to tax my liver and kidneys. Thanks!

    Most people take liver support supplements because water likely isn’t good enough…

    Oh……. good to know. Definitely going to tone down the probiotics overload for a few days. I appreciate all the help!

    Be careful about water detox.

    You need to support your liver with fruits and herbs.
