Hi all me again, I am now coming towards 2 weeks on the restricted diet. Was feeling really good until the symptom in my throat has become quite annoying. I can only describe it like I have several fishbones stuck just at the top of my throat, it is dry, so constantly drinking water, my tongue still has some white on it and the lumps seem worse, or it may just be that I can see them more now??
Along with that I am feeling tired and irritable, I feel constantly distracted by this symptom and those around me are now suggesting I go to the doctor!!!
Please help and save me from that!!! I desperately need a natural remedy that will help remove the Candida from my mouth and throat. the oil swishing has helped the front of the tongue, but as you are not allowed to gargle it is not getting to the back, I have been using organic coconut oil, not every day maybe just 3 times in the last week.
Otherwise I am still determined to stick with this, just needing a little support and guidance, no where else to go, no one else gets it??
Hope to hear from someone soon. xxMay 30, 2012 at 11:22 am #83480
I had a really white coated tongue, some lumps and would occasionally get painful sores on my gums also. I also have esophilic esophagitis caused by candida in my esophagus. Even though I feel so much better, I still have a slightly white coated tongue, few lumps on back of tongue and I am still doing the oil pulling with Spectrum organic cold pressed unrefined coconut oil. This is one of the hardest areas to get rid of candida in the month and tongue it seems, but just keep with it and work through the protoccol. You could increase the frequency of the oil pulling to see if that helps also.
It will take a combination of things like the oil pulling, diet, anti-fungals, probiotics, vitamins and minerals to help you get better. Able and Raster seem to have a good protoccol figured out. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t know about this forum or their protoccol when I started and kind of did things by trial and error. My diet was also a little different than theirs, but seemed to work ok for me. I did manage to get to the point of feeling better, and have been symptom free (except the remaining slightly white tongue) on my own somehow.
It is going to take some time. I have been at it for four months, and many others have been much longer than that. Each person is different and their severity level of candida could be more or less as well. I have also tried cold pressed extra virgin olive oil and a few drops of oil of oregano for oil pulling, but I dislike the taste.

Oh, one other thought I had. I don’t know why you can’t gargle with sea salt water. Do a search on sea salt on the link above and you should be able to find some of the ones they suggest. I know that I have gargled before with salt water when my throat was sore or irritated. Sure you can do it with the sea salt also, just might take a little longer to dissolve. I think I might try this again myself.

HI Teresa thanks for your post, it really helped to support me, I was getting niggly with it. Saw my acupucturist today so hopefully that will help. We think my spleen is working overtime at the moment cleansing my blood, so it is all good incentive to keep going. Will increase the oil pulling, it does say somewhere I read to gargle after with salt water, so have been doing that also, not sea salt though, rock salt, so now have sea to try.
Dentist said today oh its not severe though, I nearly replied you want to try and live with it, a let it go!!! Not worth the energy expenditure.
Well done for getting so far on your own, I am on their protocol and I already feel different, its great!! Arn’t we lucky to be doing something about our health.
I aim to change my diet for life so a few months on the Candida diet shouldn’t be a hardship.
Keep going, let me know when you are rid of the oral problems once and for all. Have you checked your toothpaste?

Glad to hear you are real proactive and getting help from other alternative treatments like accupunture. It’s hard to get over how professional doctors and dentists just don’t get the picture about Candida and all the health issues it can cause.
I was reading how much of our disease and health issues often begin in our mouth, which is the main pathway to our digestive systems and the rest of our body from there. Our oral health and digestive system health is paramount to keeping disease and illness at bay.
Yeah, I know that I didn’t quite follow the same pathway as the protoccol here states, but amazingly it came together for me after making many mistakes and trying so many different types of supplements. Many of them, probably aren’t approved by the protoccol. Oh well, I’m still glad I found this site even though a little later in the game for me and I’m still learning.
I stopped using regular toothpaste and then I purchased Tom’s of Maine non-floride peppermint oil toothpaste. I’m not sure that is totally healthy either, but I think it’s better than the Crest toothpaste I was using. Might try just using good old fashioned baking soda and do the oil pulling regularly to see how that goes.
Hope doing the oil pulling more frequently and gargling with sea salt will help get things under control. I’ll let you know if my tongue and mouth gets better and if I try anything else that works. Let me know how it goes for you.
All the best,

My whole ordeal started with Oral Thrush in November of 2011, I’m still not cured. I can tell you that Kefir is my miracle go to healer of all times. I don’t know where you are in the diet but I introduced plain Kefir and my whole mouth changed. I would pull with it much like the oil pulling. I was doing oil pulling 3 times a day to start and gargling with sea salt and warm water. I even tried Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar and would drink it straight. Mighty powerful but I was determined to kill this stuff. I would listen to Able and Raster. Every time I mess up I pay for it.
Over the holiday weekend I ate coconut…not plain but shredded sweatened coconut. I don’t know why. I think I thought I was close to being healed…gave it a whirl. Too much. My back of my throat is sore and a bit of a yellow tinge. I can feel it on my tongue and my body is craving sugar like mad. I’m so mad at myself. I can only hope your stronger than I am. I wish you much luck. Ask Able when you can start the Kefir and you will be so HAPPY.
