Here’s a general treatment plan we put together on the forum:
I would not take psyllium because it can cause internal bleeding and constipation that lasts for days.
If you can consult a naturopathic doctor and spend some money, you likely can heal much faster and better than the anti-candida plans you find on the internet.
You don’t need this many antifungals and should only go with 2-3 max. Pau d’arco is pretty weak and wouldn’t waste your money on it.
I would invest in some milk thistle, hydro-chloric acid (zypan or betaine HCL), pro-gest digestive enzymes, 2 antifungals, a high count high strain probiotic, and L-glutamine.
The last thing you will want once you get better is sugar.

The best way to get the proper enzymes in the correct amount is to take Swedish Digestive Bitters.
Let me know if you want a copy of the diet that most of the forum members are using.

I would carefully examine your living situation for mold problems because this alone can cause yeast/candida issues. I know because my bathroom had mold and it spread throughout the rest of my apartment. I lived there for 2 years and my landlord painted over the mold over and over before I lived there and thats all he did to treat the problem.
Additionally, I would consider trying out acupuncture to help reduce stress. You won’t get better if you don’t get your stress under control.
A great way to reduce sugar cravings over time is to switch to eating fruit when you have cravings instead of eating sugar. Fruit is allowed on some candida diets (not ours) but is a great way to get your blood sugar under control.
HCL is great for digestion; almost everyone who has candida overgrowth has a deficiency in stomach acids.
We have tons of advice on how to reduce constipation, check out this post:
A great way to reduce costs on purchasing organic meat is to purchase it online. You also shouldn’t eat too much of it on the diet so it shouldn’t cost too much more.
You won’t recover any faster with more antifungals.
