First I would like to say “hi” to all of You, and in advance – apologise for all grammar/vocabulary mistakes that I will probably make – English isn’t my mother tongue.
My name is Lucas, I’m 29, I live in Poland. My health problems started about 8 years ago (although I’ve always been of poor health). It all started with heart palpitations, fatigue, and headaches (at first few times a month, now my head hurts everyday). I’ve been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation and I had an ablation 2 years ago (now I’m on beta blockers). My symptoms are typical for most candida infections: headaches, rashes, mood changes, problems sleeping, gastric problems (bloating, diarrheas, pain). I have recurring sinus infections (I had a fess operation a year ago), and my sinuses hurt most the time (pain in the forehead, pain and tingling in my cheeks and burning eyes) also my face is very swollen. Headaches (my whole face hurts) and fatigue are my biggest problem – barely can work or function.
I’ve done some test from my saliva, nose and throat – all indicated large to very large candida infection.
I’ve done mycological tests – they also showed candida.
My current treatment is:
– Vilcacora and Pau’d Arco (about 5mg) twice a day
– Garlic (3x2tabs a day)
– oregano oil (3x a day)
– Caprylic acid (3x a day)
– Probiotics – Probiotic 10 (60 bilion a day),
– Potassium and magnesium,
– Betablocker(Bisoprololi fumaras),
– Itraconazolum (100mg a day)
– Methylprednisolonum (4mg a day – for the sinuses),
I also clean my sinuses with sinus rinse with added tea tree and oregano oil as often as I can (2-3 times a day).
I’m also on a candida diet.
What other suplements would You recommend(especially to relieve my headaches)? What other test could I do to determine the course of my treatment? I’ve read a lot of articles on Your forum, yet some of the anwsers are a little to complicated for me to understand…
Thank You in advance,
Lucas.July 27, 2013 at 10:27 pm #108293

Hi, Lucas, have you had any success with the regime that you are following?
What does your diet consist of?
I can’t claim to know lots, but if you give us more information someone may be able to help a bit.July 28, 2013 at 5:19 pm #108316
@many sparrows: It’s hard to tell as I’ve been off and on the diet and regime a few times in the past 3 years. Mainly because the results weren’t satisfactory. Now (since 2 months) I’m back on the diet and regime.
My diet consists mainly of:
– meat: beef, chicken, turkey
– 100% rye bread without yeast
– brown rice, buckwheat, lentil
– tomatoes, paprika, cucumbers, carrots(uncooked), onions, garlic, eggplants, zucchini, broccoli, lots of various herbs.
– water (about 3-5 litres a day)
I eliminated all sweets and sodas, fast foods, and carbohydrate rich products. I limited alcohol, but sometimes I drink a little at parties etc. I haven’t stoped smoking cigarettes:/July 29, 2013 at 11:24 am #108349

I controlled candida for many years with a diet like yours, which is extremely healthy for most people who don’t have candida. However I have come to the conclusion that the only way to really reduce the levels of candida to where its at a healthy balance in your body is to follow a MUCH stricter diet for a while, and many people on this forum are following such a diet. You are taking quite a lot of anti-fungals (oregano and caprylic acid are great), but on the other hand you are FEEDING the candida infestation with foods like tomatoes,carrots, rye, brown rice, lentils,which still contain sugar/starch. So these foods would counteract the benefits of the anti-fungals.
I don’t know what effect beta-blockers (and any other medication) would have on candida, or whether the sticter diet would be advisable for you as you are using these medications.August 7, 2013 at 8:56 pm #108740
@many sparrows: in that case what kind of food would You recommend? I read a lot of articles about candida diet but most seem to contradict eachother…April 9, 2014 at 9:07 am #117967

Hi Lucas, I will tell you what has worked for me and can only hope it would do the same for you. Before every meal I take a teaspoon of Apple Cidar Vinegar ( braggs brand ) to aid in digestion and alkaline the acidity in the body. I crush up a garlic glove and place in half a cup of filtered water and swallow. Been doing the garlic for just over 1 week and can feel the difference already. Hope this helps X
