Three weeks into the diet, with only one week down w/out nuts or brown rice.was considering having a minor cheat on xmas day but after reading more in this forum i’m thinking it’s not wise to do so! strikes against me are the dental amalgam in my mouth-there’s a lot due to 12 years of bulimia/anorexia in my teens/20’s. also, i’ve got a fake hip, due to get another and some broken pins that will also be removed soon. some days it seems that i’m in my 60’s instead of my late 30’s but lately it’s occurred to me that some of the depression/anxiety is lifting a bit. also, the extreme upper belly pain that i misdiagnosed 6 months ago as a gastric ulcer has been much much better-and constipation much improved-i’m almost regular!(that’s a miracle for me…i think i’ve had yeast issues since childhood.)dealing with body aches/fatigue as part of the die off has been rough but it seems to come and go. hoping kefir(thinking it might be too soon for that though) and finding digestive bitters w/out alcohol are next on my list of things to do. caprilic acid has been my mainstay antifungal so far-switching to oil of oregano soon. 6 weeks ago i tried diflucan-would taking it again at this phase help at all to help ease mouth/vaginal symptoms? or is this undoing any beneficial stuff i’ve done so far?December 16, 2011 at 4:02 pm #69203

Reply: Taking the Diflucan wouldn’t be undoing the work you’ve already done, but what it would be is a waste of money.
Nystatin and Diflucan are both precription antifungals which are no better or stronger than some of the better natural antifungals. Nystatin is supposedly a little stronger than the Diflucan.
There is lots of published research on the comparisons between Nystatin and other prescription antifungas with natural antifungals. An example of one such study is below.
All plants have a botanical or scientific name, for example, the botanical name for garlic is Allium sativum, for sweet basil it’s Ocymum basilium, and for oregano the name is Origanum vulgare.
The following is taken from several published studies comparing oil of oregano (Origanum vulgare) with Nystatin.
The antifungal properties of Origanum vulgare oil were examined both in vitro and in vivo. A comparison of the effectiveness of Origanum oil and Nystatin was examined in vitro using Candida albicans in broth cultures. Of the two, it was found that only Origanum oil at 0.25 mg/ml completely inhibited the growth of C. albicans in culture. The germination and the mycelia growth of Candida albicans were both found to be inhibited by Origanum oil in a dose-dependent manner.
Studies such as this prove that prescription antifungals are no stronger than an over-the-counter natural antifungal.
