    Some medications that I must take have starch as a binder, or soy or whatever they use. I believe this is to small an amount to do anything for the candida. But what if I have to take something sublingually? (under the tongue) “when a medicine is placed under your tongue it diffuses through the mucous membranes beneath your tongue. And because of the plethora of capillaries there, the medicine has a fairly direct route into your bloodstream. ” I got that off the net. So Will the starch/soy also go into my blood stream faster and feed the candida more then taking something through my stomach would? is this something to worry about or is it such a small amount its not something to worry about?

    You didn’t mention what kind of medication it is and what you take it for. If it is medication you must take, then you are wasting time thinking about it as you must take it to be healthy, correct? If there is another form you can find that has less of the bad stuff, fine, if not just move on. My opinion: you cannot possibly eliminate everything from your life, you do as best as you can. If it’s something that you don’t need really, cut it out, but if it’s something that you must take, just take it and see how you can remedy that. What I mean by that, if you must take pills that contain starch, then be more careful how much you take in by food, for example make sure you don’t cheat or slightly reduce amount of other starchy foods such as allowable alternative grains (buckwheat etc.). I think the amount of starch in a pill is not significant to make such a big difference.

    Stressing over small things like this is not good for your treatment. Relax and learn how to enjoy this healthy lifestyle instead of making it a burden. If you manage that, your treatment will be much easier on you and probably more successful.

    Best of luck to you!
